I am having the same problem. I can connect to Autelis via web browser but no connection with Vera. Under configuration it says run state "255 - Connection Error".

Plugin is v 1.0
Autelis is 1.6.13


Anyone have any ideas??

@arutigliano,

Please double check the ip address to your Autelis unit is correct on the configuration tab as well as the username and password for the Autelis device.  The 255 code is an error reported when the plugin tries to talk to Autelis and is refused.  Also, open up a browser window and type in the address bar http://<ip address of your Autelis>/status.xml

This will give a more detailed error is the entries on the configuration tab are correct.

I have been reading and reading here. Lots of great information. I am looking to send simple pool commands to my iAqualink via Amazon Echo (Alexa). In my reading it seems I need to get the Autelis controller attached and the plugin developed for Jandy. I am not sure how Alexa would fit in here. Any suggestions or information?

THANKS!

I had some limited success with this: https://github.com/evancg37/Alexa-Pool-Control
I used a Raspberry Pi to run the Python code but didn't pursue it further. The author was great in responding but he's a student so his time was limited.
It uses IFTT also so that is the link to the Vera. Maybe someone will have more time to work on it!

I hope someone sees this. I have everything installed and it's mostly working. I am able to turn on/off the pool filter, spa filter, pool light, spa light.

I had to add waterfall. It is a pump that is linked to Aux1.

I am unable to make 'waterfall' turn on via Alexa. It seems all of the other switches simply loaded with plugin. I attached a screenshot.
I looked at the Vera Skill in the Alexa app. It says 'find new devices' but it doesn't find it.

Any ideas on what to try to get it to work with Alexa? THANKS!

This is awesome! 

I use the HA Bridge to get my Vera items to work with Alexa.  (Honestly, I bridge everything in Vera to OpenHab2 so I can have one place for 'code'/control).

I was waiting for a wireless version of Autelis, but I may have to break down and figure out how to run a hard line.  The panel where my Jandy controller lives is on a single column.  It would look really crazy to have a bunch of wires dangling.
