Hi Richard,

I downloaded the app however I can't get it to work. On the Properties tab it says Vera User@cp.mios.com however I used the home.getvera.com website to configure my Vera 3 so I don't have a account at cp.mios.com. I have an account at home.getvera.com but I can't see how to change it on the properties tab. My vera 3 is connected through the WAN to my router however the Help tab hasn't detected my Vera. Can someone please assist as I would really like to get this app working. :(

It sounds to me you are running UI6. If your firmware is 1.6.XXX, it will not work with your Vera remotely.

Hi Garret,

can I get it to work locally then on UI6 or am I better off going back to UI5?

It should work locally on UI6.

Hi RIchard,

I have installed/unistalled the app twice however it's not connecting to Vera. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I'm not sure if my pc firewall is blocking access to the app and if I have to open a port which port number should I use.

For UI6  you have to use the WAN Direct Connect

Use your   XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:3480

Where XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX is your local IP Address.

I typed in my local IP and the port number you gave and now I get the Topic and Room buttons showing under the Help menu which I never got before. The properties page doesn't show my Vera ID. I think once I can get Hal to recognise my vera I should be able to make it work. Also when I press the Hal button to talk, I don't get the Google listening screen like you do in your YouTube video. The app doesn't respond.

I'm guessing there's no movement on getting programs like these working on UI6 for those of us unfortunate enough to have upgraded to it before we found out it was a mistake?

I will get back to this.
I have been waiting for MCV to answer a question for more than a month. I will see if I can get the answer from one of the developers who has managed to get UI6 access working.

I just installed this on Android 4.2.2 and as soon as the app opens I get "version expired."

Any setting I try to complete or configure, the app crashes.

I have had HAL for ages and it just started to report that same Version Expired error on my xoom, mobiles and nexus tablets.

Any ideas Richard? Let me know if you want me to test, delete etc.

Cheers
Tim

 Just installed the update from the Play Store and HAL is now working again. No more Version Expired message.

Thanks RTS

I confirm. Works again on my Tab 2.

Question:
If I want to wall mount my Tab 2 and just use my voice to control my Vera, how would I go about that?

There are a couple of apps out there who recognize voice but you have to push a button or I have to start Google Voice Search and have it running where I have to say "Ok Google".

What I would like is to come home and without any buttons I would like to wake up HAL and then control my Vera e.g. I come home and do things like:
"Buddy, turn on kitchen lights and power on TV"
or in the morning walking by my tablet on the way to the shower say "Buddy, turn on coffee machine".

I know KitKat is close to getting there but Tab 2 10.1 runs Android 4.1.2.

Problem 1) is to wake up the tablet via voice without having to press a button and Problem 2) HAL also requires to push a button to talk.

Any ideas?
