There are known problems with this beta including loss of some functionality, I would not encourage others who may have affected setups to rush into problems. There are indeed significant improvements coming, when the tea is brewed it will be available to all, hopefully frustration free   8)

It's not liable to brick itself but there is some question over the functionality of 3 in 1 sensors.

You are correct about the Zwave performance and response though as it is nothing short of an amazing difference!

After you updated, did you stay with the 2.78 firmware or update to the 3.20 firmware?

@Strangley,

I kinda just updated to 1.1.1229 on a whim through micasaverde's website.  I didn't know if it was a beta release or not until after I had already started it, by then it was too late to turn back.  lol.  I do see that on their website that I can further update the firmware to 1.1.1230.  I don't have a 3 in 1 sensor (yet), so I suppose that is a good thing.  lol.  I don't have any information to go off of as to the difference between .1229 and the .1230 version's.  I suppose that if I run into any issue's I could proceed to 1.1.1230 to see if there is any difference, or any other later Beta version.  I don't mind being a guinea pig.

When you say 2.78 and/or 3.20 firmware by what do you mean? What is the latest Beta firmware version any way? I'd rather be a guinea pig for the latest firmware that's currently being worked on so that if I do report any issues it'll be taken note of and corrected for the next release.  1.1.1229 and 1.1.1230 isn't the latest, so how far down the rabbit hole does this go?

Check for announcement on the latest officially released beta here.

And most up-to-date release notes are here.

2.78 is the Z-Wave firmware.

@ oTi@ and @ strangely,

thanks to both of you!

Wow, I never clicked on that z wave device icon before.  Mann, i keep learning more and more stuff every day.  Well, right now I am on Z Wave firmware version 2.78 L:1.  I just might try to upgrade the Z Wave chip to firmware 3.20.

If you want to go further down the rabbit hole... Prepare to be more confused as 3.20 also equals 452 :)

See below for further confusion, if you want to do this then make sure you understand the risks, and read well!

As Strangely mentioned, if you are feeling very risky, look at the documentation for the firmware upgrade of the zwave chip. Some major fixes have been made to the performance and so far things look very good. If you are impressed with your heal report, lets just say the heal will actually heal and correct the zwave routing tables or the devices.

yeah, i'm taking the risk.  why not, right?  i was already sitting on beta 1.1.1229 any way, might as well go all the way.  My z wave network is kinda small as it is so i'd rather take the risk now before it grows too large then I wouldn't be so apt in being a guinea pig (LOL).  I am quite impressed with what I have seen so far with the faster response time from 1.1.1229.  Very nice.  Gave me a big fat  ;D.  I don't have a 3 in 1 sensor, so no loss there.

I went ahead and upgraded to .1230, finishing up the heal now.  Then I plan on upgrading the z wave chip to firmware 3.20 (a.k.a. 452 - LMAO!) resetting the Z Wave chip and readding my devices (i'm taking the clean slate route as I think this will be the best approach). 

I don't use an inclusion controller because I have Vera 2 and I use the unit itself to add devices so this won't impact how I set things up.  I hope that I'll still be able to add the Harmony 890 Pro as a secondary controller after migrating from Z Wave 2.78 to Z Wave 3.20.  I don't see how this will have any impact on secondary controllers but you never know.  If I'm unable to use the 890Pro as a secondary controller after upgrading then no biggie.  I'm also wondering if I can get Vera to work with my DVR finally after I do all of this.  I could never get Vera to pull up my Defender's DVR images using the generic camera plugin and using "http://ipaddress:port" - "/GetData.cgi?CH=1".  So, i'll be giving this a try too.  We'll see how things pan out.   :)

I have been reading this thread for a long time. Pondering whether to try the BETA firmware.

My VERA2 system with 10 devices (dimmer/receptacle) and 2 Kwikset locks have nothing but problems. Not able to communicate with my Kwikset lock occasionally (distance between VERA2 and lock is less than 10ft), unable to configure device after a heal operation, etc. My wife thinks that I am crazy spending so much time and money on this.

Oh well, just pulled the trigger for 1229. Upgrade the dongle firmware too.

Wow! OMG! Everything works like a charm. Lock response almost immediately. Every poll return good response.

I think MicasaVerde got it right this time. ;-)

I am Vera2/UI4/1.1.1047

I suppose that there is no way to just  update to Z-Wave version 3.20 without also updating VERA to 1.1.12xx ?

Just an update on my experience thus far with Z FW 452 and UI4 Vera Firmware .1230. 

I was finally able to get my DVR Security Cams to come up through Vera, only by use of the streaming URL option through the Generic Camera Plugin.  I still can't get the jpeg URL function to work correctly (I never could prior to 452 either), I've also tried to change the timeout from 1 through 10 and back again... no dice.  At least it is coming up through the Streaming URL! Making progress, but that's probably more do to with the FW .1230 upgrade then 452. 


On another note, I have not been successful at re-adding the Harmony890 Pro as a secondary controller and being able to use the same Z Wave Devices via the H890Pro or Vera.  This probably has more to do with the Z Wave Firmware "452" or 3.20.  Since the Z Wave network is structured differently with 452 through Vera. 
The odd thing is when I go to add the H890Pro to Vera itself, the H890Pro actually comes back with telling me that it is now a "secondary controller"!!!  For anyone who has ever added an H890Pro to Vera knows that the Harmony remote will always think that its a primary controller. 

Adding the RF Extender and the H890Pro to Vera does work and the remote even tells me that its a secondary controller which is great stuff, however when I go to add the Z Wave switches/devices, the Harmony remote is unable to link/associate the Z Wave device to itself.  It will come back with an error.  When I try to add the Z Wave device to the Harmony remote a second time it actually removes the association of the Z Wave device from Vera.  Using the H890Pro as a Primary Controller is a no go because with 452 you cannot use another device to "include" devices from another controller to Vera.  lol.  I'll have to play with this some and find a way around this, without going back to 2.78.  lmao!

@iflyM3,

Are you trying to add the switches/devices via the secondary controller?

If so, SUC/SIS is no longer supported if you are running 4.52

@JOD

oh, yeah... i know. Which is why i won't be able to use the H890Pro as a primary controller to then add devices to Vera. I was trying to use the H890Pro as a secondary controller using Method #2 posted on the Wiki.  http://wiki.micasaverde.com/index.php/Logitech_890Pro

I already had the devices added to Vera (primary controller), added the H890Pro to Vera as a secondary controller, then tried to add the same devices that were already added to Vera to the H890Pro.  I did this before with 2.78 Z FW and this method does work.  Just not now with 452.  lol.  The cool thing is now tho, the Harmony actually comes back this time around and says that its a secondary controller.  

Everything is great up to step 11 using Method #2.  

{sry for moving my last post, i thought this thread was more fitting.}   :)

Wow; MCV must have changed the code then. I don't see anything (yet) about that in the release notes specifically though.

It will come back with an error.
What's the error say?

When I try to add the Z Wave device to the Harmony remote a second time it actually removes the association of the Z Wave device from Vera.
Are you sure you were adding them again, and not resetting? (When it fails to add properly, it will suggest to reset the device and say so on the screen.)
