Install Vera Alerts on the Vera and on the phone and set it up to work.
In android settings go to accessibility and switch Tasker to on (this makes Tasker able to read notifications).
Make a new profile with Event / UI / Notification and select owner application Vera Alerts.
In the enter task select you action, for example "silent mode off" select "if" and put in %NTITLE ~ *unmute*
Now Tasker will perform the action when you send  a message with the keyword unmute in from Vera via Vera Alerts.
Continue add actions of choice in the enter task with different "ifs" and keywords.
Order doesn't matter, Tasker will not perform the action if the "if" keyword doesn't match and will continue down the list of actions.

@Ric
Thanks for the info ... I was wondering why I had not previously been asked to integrate Vera Alerts and Tasker.

Haven't I requested this? Getting my phone to tell Vera Alerts who's calling would be fantastic!

I think it would be a stretch to have a phone call detected by Tasker to send an alert to Vera Alerts with the CallerID ... so that it's Text to Voice ... option would announce the CallerID.

Maybe there is already a TTS application that you can use.

There's plenty of examples out there of people using Tasker to announce caller ID. Am I correct in saying that any output Tasker could give to Vera Alerts would be useless in creating on the fly notifications? What if I had triggers set up for all of my contacts with unique messages? The reason I want to use Vera Alerts as opposed to one of the many solutions for getting Android phones to speak caller id is that I don't use the cell phone much while at home and I would like announcements over my Vera Alerts general home speaker setup. Both phones have the same number.

This is in wrong forum. Could a mod please peel it off to a new thread in the Vera Alerts forum please?

Sins Vera Alerts is only vera to phone? You can use AutoRemote and tasker to send messages between your devices and have it Text To Speech.

I use tasker and ivona to read my gtalk, sms and whatsapp when im home or in the car. Haven't tired AutoRemote yet just read about it.

I have followed the instructions for setting up Tasker/Autohomation to the letter, but I think I must be missing some important first step.  Authomation is setup and working on 2 android devices.  I have changed the device ID to my own (3000XXXX), and I have looked up the device number of the device I want to control (Device #7, my office light (double checked - the ID is 5, device is 7 in bold on the setting page)).  I have checked the settings and syntax at least 5 times, so I know it is correct.

Action: android.intent.action.VIEW
Data: authomation://device/3000MINE/7/on
Target: Activity

When I push the "play" icon, nothing happens, even though I am able to control the light fine in the Authomation app.

Is it that I am running a newer version of Tasker?  (I do not have the blue check mark button - instead I click the upper left hand button)

Is it that I need some kind of plugin for Taker for Authomation that is not listed in the newbie instructions?

Thanks in advance, and sorry for the newb question, I am just at a point that I cannot figure it out....

I'm not exactly clear on what you mean by "3000MINE".

Let us say the number of your Vera is 51638.

Then the command would be "authomation://device/51638/7/on"

Yes recently Tasker had a bit of an overhaul done to the UI.

There is not plugin needed for Tasker. I'm sure there's some simple error that you'll iron out in time.

svtech,

Which version of the app are you using? Are you using the one from the play store or the current beta? This will only work with the beta version of AutHomationHD found here on the forum. I will be releasing an official version of the app very soon to the play market.

Garrett, that was the issue, I was running the version from the Market.  Once I loaded the app from the link in your other thread, it worked perfectly.  Thank you very much for the app and the response!

The easiest way to utilize AutHomationHD within Tasker is by using the AutoShortcut plugin for Tasker. It provides direct access to the GUI for selecting home screen shortcuts. No URLs or device numbers to manage.

Play Store link here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.joaomgcd.autoshortcut

Garrett, consider adding this information to the top post in this thread. This plugin makes automating with Tasker, and NFC Task Launcher, exponentially easier.

Could you please elaborate on this? For example, what do you mean by "home screen"?

He is referring to the home screen shortcuts that can be created. For example you can create a shortcut to unlock a door, turn on a light, etc. This is found in the widget section of android.

Has anyone been able to get tasker to respond to vera alerts messages? I have set up everything as described to no avail.
