Datamine helped me brick a VeraPlus
« on: December 05, 2018, 06:29:30 pm »
My Vera Plus is bricked - caused by attempt to install DataMine 2.0

Tried to install DataMine 2 having backed up first.
Data Mine consumed all of my memory - seen from ALTUI

Attempted solution - reinstall backup
Result Boot Loop (?)* Power led on, WiFi led on, Internet+Service led on/off 10 minutes - looping every 15 minutes.

Attempted Solution:
* Power on/off - same result
* Reset 6x within 6 sec - no response
* Sync + Select - trying to use WiFi - No response, no Blinking WiFi led indicating WPS.

Solution ???:
Order a new one  and keep away from DataMine?
Switch to HomeSeer ?
Switch to SmartThings/Fibaro/???

Suggestions ?

It must be the Vera Plus. At one time I had DM2 on my Vera 3 and it worked fine.  I ended up uninstalling because firmware updates broke all of my DM settings. It was more trouble than it was worth.

For the future ....
Add raspberry and HA to your toys.
Draw information from Vera, and play with pictures as much as you like.
