I have opened a case with my supplier to return the Vera, he recommend me to switch to the Athom Homey, would that be a good replacement for the Vera? I use scripting,  scenes, the android app and I would love google home integration although thats just a plus.

I moved back to Fibaro, they are bad in 3rd party integration (Nest, Harmony, Hue.....) but Zwave is not a problem with them

I?m not committed to anything right now, but the plan is to choose something that works with homeaasistant or openluup, and use the controller just to send zwave commands.

I moved the switch to a HomeSeer solution.
The device works perfectly. Also in "flash mode" which was my reason for buying the switch.

Will now test moving my whole Z-network away from Vera.
Sad. Many advantages with Vera, but the lack of customer focus despite the massive input from this forum is an issue.

You poor bastards - I can't believe this is still an epic train wreck.  I'm only here because I received a PM asking about this so thought I would pop back into this thread - I had completely forgotten about the disaster that is Vera, holy moly it's coming back to me now wow... just wow.

I also need an aswer.... it's quite one year.

need to refresh my whole walls and I can create spots for those controlers...

it's lot of work and I am not ready to wait for 10 month more...

I asked them to give a correct answer and time to fix this but I guess it's useless

If you haven't purchased them yet, why not just get Qubinos instead? They work great, and to be honest they give a better impression than Fibaro. I have loads of Fibaro, had them since the early days, but all new devices are Qubino now.

What controller did you end up with? I have trouble finding one that will have the features I use. For example I look into Athom Homey controller, but it seems to have very limited support for Fibaro Roller Shutter 2, Vera have full support for all of its features. 

Its so sad. Vera has a nice feature set.

Hello Anders,

I have checked your controller, and besides the known issue caused by the Fibaro Double Switch 2 FGS-223, everything else seems to be in order.
You can be assured that we are working on fixing the source of the delays caused by this device in your system.

Please let me know if there is anything else that I can help you with.

Regards,

well, this is the first time they say they're working on a fix. I won't hold my breath, because maybe it's just Sorin that reported it to them :)

Ok so I have been looking at the Athom Homey to replace my Vera, and while the product seems nice their Fibaro support is not very solid :/
So I will now look at Animus.

If you don't have a lot of 3rd party devices (not zwave devices like nest, harmony, hue...) Why don't you check Fibaro Home centre? Vera is better in this domain but fibaro is better with zwave especially with their products :)

I don't want to lock myself to z wave IKEA and Hue uses ZigBee for example might something I want to get in the future. Also I need scripting and the Fibaro controller with scripting is insanely priced.

Thirdly, I do not like how locked down they are, they are the Apple of HA and I stay away from Apple for the same reasons.

But it might end up with that if I can't find a better controller

Have a look at hass.io, it's very flexible. For now not very intuitive but you can easily import Vera devices. Adding an extra zwave usb dongle (OZW) for non supported vera-supported devices and you can (re)place some logic (or all) to hass.

I would have hoped Ezlo had bought hass and worked on rock solid zwave device support there.

One big downside: everything has to be modeled in the UI via "CLI" (config files). But they said they'r working on it. that's a hassle :-)
Good firmware is more important than good karma. (and this costed me lots of Karma)
