Hi - I appreciate this is most likely the wrong thread, but hoping you might be able to help.

I am trying to add a new device for the RFXtrx433 - I fill out the information as
Category: RFY
Device Type: Window Covering
Device Name: Somfy blind
Id: 1
Unit Code: 1

I then click "create" and it comes up with a message in green "Vera will reload to validate changes..."

But it then just hangs - nothing happens.

Any advice on what I need to do please? Any guidance is appreciated.

Update - I logged a query with MiOS and they recommended a downgrade in the firmware. I have just downgraded from 1.7.3231 to 1.7.3014. Now I can at least create a new device to configure.

Next challenge is to connect it with the blinds!

Do you think you could share the custom url for the downgrade?

Sure - this is what they sent me:

I do not think downgrading the unit will affect your current setup. If you experience any issue we can upgrade it back. To do this, please go to Settings > Firmware > Advanced: URL for custom Vera firmware. Copy paste the following link and hit Download. Let me know how It goes.

We would all be better off by putting in Support Ticket so Vera can fix the bug they created.

Im hoping that someone of this forum can help me since after 2 days of messing around im becoming litte desperate...

I have 2 vera's and working with the vera for 3 years now in combination with rfxcom. Nebver had any single problem (other than datmine filling up the storage but thats not the problem).

Now i tried to upgrade my vera device from veralite to vera edge. All went fine, all devices are transferred with exception of rfxcom app. I have (in the meantime) tried to install the app from mios like 5 times but are unable to get it to work with the device despite setting port, baud rate correct etc etc. Then i have downloaden alpha, beta, trunk 153 etc. walked the normal procedure of uploading files, restart luup, crate device and never a device is created on the vera edge (latest firmware for both edge as well as the rfxcom per today).

Hooking the rfxcom to my computer... works fine, connecting it with vera lite... works fine...

Maybe someone can post like the 5 steps togo through then ill give it some more shots... :)

description i used: http://code.mios.com/trac/mios_rfxtrx/wiki/WikiStart#InstallationSetup
trunk i used: http://code.mios.com/trac/mios_rfxtrx/browser/trunk#
firmware i used: http://www.rfxcom.com/epages/78165469.sf/nl_NL/?ObjectPath=/Shops/78165469/Categories/Downloads

1 thing is strange: in serial port configuration in menu develop apps of the vera i select the bottom line "used by device" i can see all the frx devices i made thus far but they dont show up on the devices menu...

Did you try that link i posted to wind the firmware on Vera Edge back? Worked for me - once all the devices were created and setup, I re-installed the latest firmware version and it all works perfectly.

Ok this is very strange... so fed up with the gear that i erased both vera's. instead of downloading the last trunk i took the ?ld" files from my vera. logged onto the vera by means of winscp and put back the old files. Suddenly i can make the rfx controller device again and its workign (at leats receiving) still busy trying to create devices (not yet worked) but we are one step further. Conclusion: files on the internet are corrupt?

Hi,

I've been using v1 but have never been able to change device type as the dropdown is always empty. I upgraded to v3 beta with no issues hoping that might fix it, but no luck.

Let me know if any one has any ideas please?

As I am a total newbee, I would appreciate a few tips to get started. I have a bunch of blind motors that I want to integrate to Vera. They are Alphamotors (Australia) 433.92MHz.

How do you use the RFXmngr to snoop out the signals? is it possible? Any tips to get started are much appreciated. Cheers Markus

May or may not work. Best Guide available is from Vesternet.
