No other issues at the moment, thanks. Do I just upload a blank file to get rid of the message? Or could you include a file in the release with an example? Just thoughts, I try to have my logs clean.

If I released an empty file, any local definitions would get overwritten when the plugin was updated.

The format is the same as the file:
   veraTemplateDefinitions.lua
The only mandatory line in the file if the file exists is:

Code: [Select]
module("veraUserTemplateDefinitions", package.seeall)

For Technical Reference see:
http://rts-services.com/VeraTemplates/

For Examples of some templates see the attached file ... I use this for testing.

I am using ver 3.95... I can get the camera picture perfectly but I can't get the video attach file...
I am using this command in the send alerts massage :

Alerts Alerts, Intruders detected {Video(22,10)}

in my Android app, it mentions Download Error: FIles Not Found on Vera..... any idea ?

Do you have a USB stick added to Vera ?

Richard,
I appreciate your work I upgraded Vera Alerts to version 4.0 tonight.  I now keep getting the notice in vera "VeraAlerts[174] : Is Not Initialized! Open Profiles Tab!" I have opened to profiles tab and added profiles and deleted profiles anything to get this to change is there something I am suppose to be doing differently.  Also whenever I click any buttons in the edit panel I get a error message of "Invalid service/action/device".

Richard,

Thanks for the enhancements in VeraAlerts 4, including the new Report functionality. I observed two types of entries in the Message Overrides section of the Report that appear to be unintended.

  • There are entries in the Message Overrides section of the Report for every trigger in a scene that I use to run Luup code to update the content of several variable containers.
  • There are entries for notifications that exist in the Notification tab for devices even though every Notify check box for the notifications is unchecked.
Additionally, none of the above described entries are displayed in the Notification configuration tab of the Vera Alerts plugin.

Yes because  ANY scene trigger can be toggled to send a notification. In that case it allows you to override the message.

You might come back an check them ... The Notifications will not go out unless they are checked ...


Note in both of these cases you could have notifications go out using the standard Notification services provided by MCV.

Hi Richard,

[update] I think I made a mess initially with addin a new profile in a half-ass way... After I cleaned out the value for "Profiles" (just leaving the initial "Vera-Alert-Mobil" profile in there) in the Advanced Settings of the Vera Alert device, there is no more LUA startup error.

[/update]

Thanks also from my side for the update - however, I have the same problem as described by drossmill06... After upgrading to 4.0, I get

VeraAlerts[16] : Startup Lua Failed

when restarting Vera Lite. When I try to e.g. send a test alert, I get the error message "Device not ready"... Any idea what this could be?

Thanks!

Please send me the output from your Vera LOG file during the time of your restart.

@RTS

Thanks. I'll migrate the scene with triggers to PLEG and use PLEG to run the scene to stay clear of the first case.  I'll eliminate the dormant notifications for devices to avoid the second case.
