Well in the press release about the name change, they are talking about the 7th generation interface, so time for a newspost from Vera

As @Thiemen mentions there are changes ahead.. http://getvera.com/news-posts/mi-casa-verde-is-now-vera-control-ltd/

Yes, the screenshots of the new UI looks quite impressive.

Where did you see pics from the new UI?

@RichardTSchaefer found a back door into the images folder for the new site so a number of us got the chance to see some of the new UI screenshots that I assume we're due to be published. (You can find these in the earlier posts)

Looking on http://www.getvera.com/ I can't find them anywhere, they only seem to  show UI5.

My personal assumption is that MCV had a few 'last minute' glitches and were unable to go live with the new site and the new UI (To help underpin the new 'green' brand and site colours) so they've had to push what's being called  UI7 back.

So that's most likely why (unless I've missed it) the new UI is not being promoted/made visible on the new site today..  (But it's coming, oh yes (cue evil laugh ) it's coming ...)

If anyone saved some of the no-longer-accessible preview images, please PM me with a location so I can take a look.  Obviously I didn't access them  before Micasaverde heard about the backdoor you discovered and closed it ;)

New site appears live.

But where is the rainbow-spewing unicorn?

On a more serious note, we need a forum convention for differentiating Vera (the company) from Vera (the hardware). Its new abbreviation would be "VCL". Hmm.

(Unless we pretend that "MCV" means "Micasaverde-cum-Vera".)

It appears to have died in the transition to and gone to the MCV Heaven. 

The main issue with retaining MCV would be newer user may have issues understanding and of course, I hope the MCV users will adopt new conventions sometime in the near future.

I also see they have "schedule maintenance" on mios.com.  I wonder what the new structure will bring with respect the MIOS and hardware changes. They attempted to break the direct link sometime back but the legacy continues... When will the forum shift too? And the big future consideration will be offsite access and firmware updates.  So I do not think the changes are finalized or fully implemented to date.

For those that missed out on the unicorn ... I attached ... it was in my browser cache.
Sorry ... I only had a clipped version in my cache ...


We can still use MCV (Manufacturing Company for Vera)

The signs of life are welcome. It's been a long time. I tried the new Vera iOS app and it still appears to be buggy. It will connect to one of my Vera controllers but not the other. *sigh*

I hope the next version of the firmware they speak of shows some major improvements. Although "hope" may be too strong a word for it.

Sadly I was told the api will be different. How much different, I do not know. I am hoping only for the authentication and the rest stays the same.

Looks like the MiOS security stuff will change, at least if UI7 is a continuation of UI6.  I've worked with an OEM selling devices on UI6, and while they work with HomeWave out of the box on LANs, the MiOS gateway for UI6 seems to use a different URL scheme.  Haven't gotten to the bottom of what it is, though :)
HomeWave is available in the App Store!  Turn your iPhone/iPad into an easy-to-use remote control for Vera.

Aaron was in contact with me about a month ago stating that the authentication will use a new method to authenticate and receive a token that will be used to communicate remotely through their gateways. I emailed Aaron just now on when to expect documentation. They also stated that their is example code for both Android and iOS.
