New recommended android app for vera lite control
« on: November 14, 2014, 07:56:13 pm »
Sorry for a newbe question but does UI7 mean the same thing as firmware version 1.7.439 ??

Regardless, there doesn't seem to be many recent posts about recommended remote control apps for android for veralite.  It looks like the most recent ones on HomeBuddy say that it hasn't been updated for a couple of years now.  Can anyone recommend some apps that they really like and that really work?

thanksl

Soon as I posted I saw some posts on Imperihome...  do people like that one?

Or would the AuthomationHD be better? 

Sorry I didn't see these before I posted the first one.  I'll do some research on them.

I think it depends on how you are using them. I have several Android wall tablets running ImperiHome but I use AuthomationHD on my phone

ImperiHome looks better but doesn't have alot of support for special plugins. Basic z-wave devices work fine, depends on what you have on your VERA.

AutHomation as more support for special plugins and is free (so might as well try it out) but doesn't look as nice or have customization.

AuthomationHD is perfect for a smartphone, and I use ImperiHome for my tablets.  I also have AuthomationHD installed on my tablets so that I can create shortcuts on my home screen.

I have both installed but seem to gravitate to AuthomationHD more than Imperihome as the former fits my requirements better.

I second AuthomeationHD.  I love the layout.  I have it on my home tablet and my wife's phone.  I unfortunately have to use iPhone for work but would LOVE a version of it for iPhone.

If you use it with anything greater than UI5 I believe you need the Beta version of AuthomeationHD.  You can find a thread about it for a direct download.
