Can I go back to previous Firmware?
« on: July 20, 2011, 04:52:10 pm »
Hi,
I have been with the Vera for a year now....good experiences in the beginning and learned much. I installed a Vera on one of our 92 foot yachts and it ran fine for one month and then had a total Zwave meltdown....unable to communicate with the nodes and I also had trouble with the box becoming non-responsive. Maybe that's OK for the guy at home who has hours to tinker but not for me in this application. I have been on the latest Zwave firmware and .1245. My system was stripped down to no addons and just 10 dimmers to control. I have now replaced the Vera with a Leviton ASCII to ZWave interface and my system is up and running with no problems. I am jumping ship!
I was thinking that i did not have these issues with earlier firmwares. How can I go back? I won't have the DSC interface but at least the unit ran without these huge reliability issues.
Please understand that I DO NOT HAVE TIME to figure out what went wrong. I need a system that runs every day.....24 hours a day.

I think the new ZWave Firmware has issues.....
I know that current Vera Firmware has issues.
How can I go backwards and rebuild the unit to be a simple ZWave Controller?
I had no issues (when controlling dimmers) prior to .1234
Anyone?
MCV?

What build do you want to downgrade to from 1234?

1186, 1183, 1062 or 1047?


JOD.
I'm sorry, my responses are limited. You must ask the right questions.
