Yes, lots going on...

...but, unlike Vera, it doesn't go wrong!

There's a UI7 branch on GitHub, I believe, for the gateway plugin, which should work.  Are you using ethernet or serial bridge?
3x Vera Lite-UI5/Edge-UI7, 25x Fibaro, 23x TKB, 9x MiniMote, 2x NorthQ Power, 2x Netatmo, 1x Foscam FI9831P.
Razberry, MySensors Arduino, HomeWave, AltUI, DataYours, openLuup, ZWay, ZeroBrane Studio.

It's a bit quiet down here... Anything still going on?
I'm waiting for my 2.4 GHz radio to arrive in the mail, then I will try this out. But, I use UI7.... Has it been tested with UI7?

I just built a serial gateway and temp/humidity sensor w/ the 1.5 build and its working fine.  A few gotchas to get it all sorted out but nothing major.  I posted a couple of videos on my YouTube channel, first one below:

The reason it is quiet here is that everyone has moved the MySensors discussions to -> http://forum.mysensors.org/ and there is allot going on!!  :D

I added a "self-powered" USB hub to my VeaLite to support a memory stick and the MySensors serial gateway.  It lets the hub run off the same 12VDC power that the Vea does, so no need for a separate power brick and the additional cables.  Video on the setup below:

This in itself saves a few watts of power that would have been used by the separate wall wart for the hub (about 20KWH/year savings!).  Ultimate goal for my Vera is to place it on my solar battery bank running off 12VDC power.
