I can't seem to get the push notification function to work.  I formerly had automator.app functioning with push notifications and had overridden the default alert system on the vera, I have since verified that I have removed that and set it back to default.  I used this command and received an "OK" response
http://LOCALVERAIP3480/data_request?id=variableset&Variable=AltEventServer&Value=

My push ID is bphonetwenty12345678.  I have it set on the phone and the vera app says ready.  When i try to send a message i don't get anything on the phone.  All of the files are loaded.  The app was created per your instructions with the correct device filename: D_HWPush1.xml.  The device id is 26 and i put that in the luup code.

luup.call_action("urn:intvelt-com:serviceId:HWPush1", "SendMessage", {Msg = "Blah Blah 26"}, 26)

I have restarted the vera luup system as well as vera.  I have also restarted the homewave app on the phone.   I also did a hard restart on the phone.  I'm all out of ideas.

What is you setting on the General Tab? I also missed this step. :)

You may want to set Default Recipients (under General) to Forward

So I change the Default Recipients under General to Forward and it is working now.

where is the general tab?  I don't see a general tab in vera.  It's only control, advanced and settings.  I'm in IOS and the app has no tabs in either the settings or the app itself

I'm not using vera alert.  I didn't think this needed vera alert if you were using IOS.  You can simply call it from luup code for scenes.

Setting Default Recipients to Forward is done in the General subtab of the Settings tab for the Vera Alerts plugin.

The Vera Alerts plugin is not needed. You can invoke the Push notifications from LUA code and/or the advanced tab of scenes. But if you want to invoke a Push notification from the Notifications tab of any Vera device ... you will want to use Vera Alerts

@bsteimel

It should work, if you follow the instruction correctly. Its pretty simple to setup and I'm looking at your screen shot everything seem ok. Try to go over the instruction again and use a different PUSH ID. Make sure to save the changes.

Thanks aboyz.  I think I will delete everything related to the app and retry.

update: i did just that and now it seems to be working.  Weird everything was the same except that i didn't use numbers in my pushid, don't know if it makes a difference

I would like to use this instead of the standard Vera notifications since those notifications takes sometimes hours to show up after the event took place.  In my case it is all around my front door lock and when certain codes etc are entered then I want notification for both 2 different people on 2 iOS devices.

I have now gotten the TEST aspect of this working and I am receiving pop ups on my phone.  Couple of questions please for those that have this FULLY working:

1) I have homewave on my phone and put my pushid within the app.  If I install the homewave on my wives phone do I use the same pushid?  What happens if I only want certain alerts/notifications to only come to me and some only to here but yet others to both of us?  How is that done?

2) I also have the VeraAlerts app installed on my Vera Lite and have put in the proper information under the Profiles tab of the app for plugin forwarding (information in there is for the home wave stuff).  What else do I need to do?  I see check boxes for process notifications and internal alerts but I am unsure as to what they refer to.

3) I do not have any scenes etc created.  I have my lock and I want to be able get a notification when a certain code is entered into the door.  Must I create a scene?.. I just want the notification not a scene per say. 

4) is there a way to use these notifications/alerts thru veraAlerts and HomeWave and turn off the notifications so that I do not get the alerts from micasaverde several hours later?  -- My thought is that I will need to go into the ACCOUNT section of Micasaverde and turn off (uncheck) the box for send me an email under email settings and uncheck the box for send me a text under phone settings.  Is that correct?  By doing this will I only get messages from VeraAlerts/Homewave only and not the standard micasa approach?

Please help.  Thanks in advance.  I am anxious to get this working and look forward to hopefully getting the notifications on a much more timely manner after the event has been triggered.

1) You can use the same Push ID to receive messages on both phones, or set up a different Push ID.  In that case you'd have to set up 2 Push plugins as well (one for each ID), but I am not even sure if the plugin supports that, it is still kind of beta.  I'll have a look at that.  I am also not sure if VeraAlerts supports forwding to multiple plugins.

2) To see if you have configured VeraAlerts correctly for HomeWave, try sending a test message from VeraAlerts first.  Then switch to Settings in VeraAlerts and make sure your username is associated woth your profile.  Then see point 3.

3) Go to your lock device and click Notifications.  Add a notification for the appropriate event and have it sent to your username.  Switch to the VeraAlerts device, open the Notifications tab, close it again, and hit Save. Now VeraAlerts should take care for forwarding the lock's notification to HomeWave.

4) Not sure about this.  Better check the plugins section of this forum, there's a separate subforum for VeraAlerts
HomeWave is available in the App Store!  Turn your iPhone/iPad into an easy-to-use remote control for Vera.

One of my use cases for the last revisions to Vera Alerts was to support multiple IPhone users using multiple
profiles (can be multiple forwarding profiles).

If you allow users to specify the PUSH-ID in the luup.call_action ... They can use a single profile
and pass that in the message string as: {PUSH-ID:XXXXXX}
Where PUSH-ID is the name of your plugin parameter, and XXXXXX is the user ID for their phone.

If you allow multiple plugin-ins they can have a unique Vera Alters profile for each user phone, that is is associated with the unique plug-in for each phone.

Just found this yesterday in the app store. Installed fine and setup went smoothly. I sent a test notification and that came through, but so far that is all I have done with it.

Thanks a lot for this nice feature and plugin.

Is there any advantage going through VeraAlerts instead of only using HomeWave Push?

If you use notifications in many different places, VeraAlert makes it a lot easier to manage it all.  Writing Luup is not required, and you can have it use Vera's notification system so you can generate notifications directly from devices without having to create notification scenes.
