if you look at the fibaro HC1  you'll find that it was run by the mios system.
now look at the fibaro HC2 which is their own rebuild of the same system and the great UI they made..
it was buggy and missing some stuff that vera does have, but they have fixed nearly all the stuff that users requested..
and unlike mcv they give the impression they do care and understand the consumers wishes to be informed and have their wishes implied.
nuff said. :-)
i sincerely hope mcv will go the same direction and gets their stuff together and get the vera fixed, instead of posting family pics hidden in a cheap-ass wordpress website

If the new "Vera" is just about an updated interface, that would be disappointing.

This all depends on what the upgrade entails.......

seems there is going to be a normal version : vera lite and a pro version: vera pro , which has a better cpu and more ram. what i recall it is a 1ghz proc with 1gb of ram. new UI is more shaped for the inexperienced user, but still missing some things that the community wishes. as with more new technologies happening nowadays , there is  a huge gap between the techies and the digibetes.
would be great if they hire a normal person without to much of computerknowledge to do the UI design and make it so that it is intuitive and simple yet powerfull.

An upgrade is welcomed. My concern is that the new Vera may just be a new layout and new icons for the interface. I was not around for previous UI upgrades, so that may be unfounded.

Edit:

All zeroes now as well; nothing. Ugh.

well the UI4 to UI5 implied a lot of differences and offcourse backwards compatibility. from all that i read we hardly cannot do our stuff whithout the UI5 but the UI4 seems more stable.
so i hope the UI6 or 7 will bring some more plugin support stuff like NTP, a notification hook, SSL/TLS interface to the UI, better  UPnP autodetect, etc.
but since mcv is not telling us anything and didn't consult the beta-testers it's not more then speculations :-/

edit:

yes 189,50 dollar savings  ::)
saving energy also.. wonder how , when you add all the devices. the thermostate that doesnt do it without user-intervention,
talking to a utility-meter which is not in the package.. etc..
a lot of blabla and less real life situation.
i mean.. imagine yourself buying more stuff, cost more money. imagine yourself doing hours of research to get the system so far it does all of this.. imagine that security-subscription u dont have and offcourse the cost of internet in your house.. imagine the support that leaves u in the dark most of the time.. imagine yourself go to ebay and get the same stuff for a lot less.. imagine a nice nephew with computerskills opening the frontdoor and messing up the system coz of the security holes when on local lan , which offcourse you gave to them as they beg for internet for their phone. yes the grass IS greener on MCV side, please do come here  ;D

All this fuss over the new shop "Get Vera"....
It is working but not via the front door.

I don't think all this fuss is/was about the new shop.

First, the shop has been on shop.getvera.com for weeks, also it is and has been accessible from the front door (if you just go to micasaverde.com and click "buy" you actually land on shop.getvera.com).

Second, the screenshots of an UI nobody has ever seen before let me hope for more.

Third, the sentence "Mi Casa Verde Becomes Vera In:" which is shown on getvera.com also seems to hint to bigger changes than just a new shop or new packages.

However, these are all logic conclusions and guesses, and as far as I know micasaverde, they don't very often stick to the logic usual people, customers and developers come up with.  ;D

I'm hoping that the name change implies that MCV will shift their focus from OEMs to consumers, and that they will start working closer with the community.  There's a wealth of developers, testers, debuggers and UI people to tap into here.
HomeWave is available in the App Store!  Turn your iPhone/iPad into an easy-to-use remote control for Vera.
