VeraMate Gone For Good??
« on: June 10, 2018, 02:38:52 am »
Sooo I just checked VeraMate's profile on the forums here and apparently he hasn't logged in since September 17, 2017...

I don't think this is good news for any of us VeraMate users now that notifications have stopped working in the app. I'm not sure if he's ever going to come back here anymore >:(

I needed push notification functionality and went the Pushover route. Has actually been a bit of an improvement over VeraMate.  Still use VeraMate daily to look at and control stuff. I still think it is the best iPhone interface yet due to one's ability to customize.

Hey Don - I'm really missing push notifications myself so I'm attempting to get Push Over set up.  I created an account with Push Over and I loaded the IOS client.  From the Push Over website I can send a test message to mu phone just fine but Vera is the problem.  I installed the Push Notification MIOS app and have it configured with a customer app key that I created on the Push Over website but I can't seem to get test messages from that app to show up on my iPhone.  Any guidance...?

I use the Vera Alert plug-in. You can configure it to send notifications to VeraMate (which I did until it broke) or change over to Pushover. That is what I did.

Does Pushover have any advantages over Prowl??

I am still on 11.4.1 on an iPhone 6.  If indeed 12 breaks VeraMate, I'll have to look for a replacement or just not upgrade. My 6 is working fine so I will likely skip another new phone cycle.

I'm definitely not going to upgrade if 12 breaks VeraMate...

Ugh this really sucks because I'd imagine it wouldn't take much for the developer of VeraMate to update the app... it's bad enough that iOS 11 broke VeraMate's push notifications but now iOS 12 kills the app entirely?? Not cool at all....

C'mon VeraMate... where are you?? :(
