I've been trying to trust mine with just Vera at the moment. No hiccups so far in about a week of use.

I am just taking baby steps, I will try etherrain with vera the next time i am at the house down south.  Are you guys using the weather plug-in with vera controlling etherrain?

Not really, no need for the weather plugin as I'm in SoCal and in never rains anyway :) I have the weather plugin but for the most part I just use to gauge if I'll need the A/C or not.

I've not used UI3 for ages but is goes like this...

Assuming you have downloaded the plugin files; go to to the MIOS developers section and LUUP files tab, scroll to the bottom of the list, you will then need to browse for the files that you downloaded and saved previously for the plugin on your PC, then scroll down a bit more and tick the "Restart LUUP after upload" box, and then press "Go".
After you've done that and the status window with the circle has stopped spinning, you will then have to use the create device tab:

In the Description Box you can type how you would like it to be named on your dashboard (I called mine Sprinkler system), then in the UpnpDevFilename box type D_EtherRain.xml and in the UpnpImplFilename box type I_EtherRain.xml, assign it to a room in the drop down box, then click create.

Once the plugin has been created you will then need to go to its advanced options and enter the IP address of the EtherRain and the valve run times.

You should then be done, good luck! :)

I had this device working in UI2 just fine.

I recently upgraded to UI4 and I am having a bit of difficulty getting the device into Vera.

I've done the steps above. Got the D_EtherRain.xml and I_EtherRain.xml files uploaded to Vera2.

I used the "Developer" console to add a device, specifying the two files above and the IP and MAC of the unit.

It doesn't appear to be reading the D_EtherRain.xml info into the device, because there are no default variables filled in.

Also, there are no Valve variables or username password variable or anything I was familiar with in UI2.

Any suggestions?

After Loading it do an LUUP engine restart using the refresh button next to the question mark. Should then work!

Strangely... Tried that a few times. Even restarted the entire unit with a power cycle. It doesn't seem to find the xml file at boot or something. None of the variable fields are populated. In particular, the device-type is GenericDevice.


Very odd. I've removed the files and tried re-uploading and applying a second and third time with no luck.

Any other suggestions?

If you don't see variables it mean the startup script failed.
What version of Etherrain plugin are you using?
This one, or some earlier version?
Latest Etherrain Plugin

Let me get rid of what I have installed, and try installing this particular set of files.

The ones I'm currently using are from the code.mios.com site.

I'll post my results back here shortly.

Delete them :)

You have to SSH in and delete them from the /jffs/etc/cmh-ludl directory

Thats really odd as I was having the same issue with this and another plugin and refreshing the LUUP engine once or twice worked for me?! I actaully wrote that about a page or so back.

The xml files from this download worked perfectly :D. Definitely newer versions than the ones I downloaded from CODE.MiOS.COM
