First of all, thanks for a great plugin! Installation and setup were straight forward and I love being able to use my Vista 20P sensors with Vera.

I have had this plugin working for a few weeks now, just noticed a little annoyance and wondering if anything can be done about it. If I click save on my Vera Lite after making a change to another app or setting, my Vista 20P keypad beeps 2 to 4 times. I suspect this is because the LUA services are being restarted, but I was wondering if there is anything that can be done to stop the keypad from beeping.


Thanks,
Andy

my Vista 20P keypad beeps 2 to 4 times.

This is because you have outputs configured... Controlling outputs requires sending keypad commands... these commands cause the panel to beep... The only way to suppress these beeps is to reprogram the keypad to suppress sounds (which may supress other - desireable - sounds.

Thanks. I have my configuration pretty stable now so no need for reboots and I can live with the occasional beeping when I need to make changes.

With version 3.39 I keep getting "Connection Down" alerts, I reboot the vera or reload luup and the problem goes away for a few minutes. I fairly certain there isn't a network issue between the vera and the EVL3. I've also ensured that the sound suppression is set to 0.

I have even attempted to install the newest development version (4.0) but continue to get connection down messages...

Any Help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Matt

I upgraded the Vera's firmware to 1.7.649 a few days ago. Prior to that everything was working properly- I was getting alerts via text and email when the system was armed and disarmed. Since upgrading, I now get a blast of emails and texts from every sensor daily at about 9:25 EDT until it reaches the max number of notifications. How do I stop the individual sensors from reporting via text/email?

I also started getting text/email alerts on every status change in the system. Really annoying to get 10 texts and emails just walking around the living room every time the motion detector goes off.

Now today its telling me the connection to the EVL3 is down completely. Reboot of the Vera got the connection back. But only after our dog walker called to let us know the alarm was going off when the front door code didn't disarm it like usual.
