Hello. I recently download and tried Veramate. Very nice user interface. Worked for a one day and now I cannot login. Any ideas? I would like to be the ad-free version but worried I cannot login in. Why would it work one day and not the next?

Hi Robbie

Could you let me know some more details what's happening?  Eg, have you logged out (or it logged you out) and now you can't log in?  So when you try to log in, what error does it say?

And just to cover everything, I'd assume you haven't changed your password..?

I haven't heard of this happening (i.e., logging in, and then not being able to later) before, so I don't know why this would occur yet.  If you could let me know some more details, I should be able to get to the bottom.

Any chance you will support dsc alarms. Shows up but can't arm or disarm.

I'm currently working on some (beta) code which will hopefully allow the same control as the website for any device.   Hopefully it'll be ready before christmas (Apple is shutting the store down over some of the period, so if I miss the deadline it won't be until after).

Hi,
I just downloaded VeraMate lite. I like the way the app looks and seems pretty stable so far.

I have 2 AEON Labs SmartSwitch devices and one GE Switch 45603 Appliance module switch.
Under "Lights" only one of the Smart Switches shows up, but all the switches show up properly under the respective room.

How is it determined what shows up under "Lights" ?


UPDATE:
It seems the switch shows up under "lights" only when it is turned on. As soon as I turn it off, it is no longer shown under "Lights". Is that the way it's supposed to work?

Thanks,
Mike

That's correct, Mike.   I need to put some popup info in these screens/rename that button, but yes, that only shows active lights.  I have a planned future version will allow you to group by rooms or the device type as well, which will actually have a button for all lights.

It currently tries to guess what the room is... which doesn't work at all for different languages etc.  Can you give me a list of the rooms you use?

I am working on some changes now that will allow the icon to be chosen - so this can't be done with the current version.  You can expect these changes soon after the new year.

i have named my rooms in french language so there are called :
"Salon" ( which is living room)
"Chambre enfant" (children's bedroom)
"chambre parent" (parent's bedroom)
"cuisine" (kitchen)
etc...

Now I haven't used this before, but for this situation VeraMate can download a list of keywords, which Ive just updated with your room names.  If you close VeraMate down (you'll need to restart it, so double tap the iPhone home button, and swipe away VeraMate), it should refresh the list on next start.

Any other rooms, you'll have to give me a list, and I can map them easily enough.

i've just updated to the new version.

i noticed my icons have changed, thank you ! it's just cosmetics, but i appreciate a lot !

just one issue, since i updated, when i open veramate, the screen becomes all black. so i need  to close the app and relaunch it.

No problems - I know it detracts considerably without nice icons.

And yes I've just found that bug with the blank screen.  Restarting/relogging in fixes it.  I'll have to get out an update asap for that.
