Hi,
I am currently a new user of MCV Vera3... Unfortunatly this box is also a Massive Fail in my point of view... I can add zwave sensors, but... I cannot use them...

Even a simple thing : set a switch to when someone goes near my EZMotion 3-in-1 sensor (when it is alive, eg for only 10 minutes then I will dye) is not possible... This purely brain damage...

I really think to use another zwave box instead of that....

So bad, I was really looking forward about vera... :(

You will need to manually upgrade to 1.5.322. Going to cp.mios.com/firmware will walk you through the upgrade process.

Not sure if I am ready to try beta versions.
Still a newbie and a long time (30 years) since I worked on hard- and software development (dedicated microcontroller applications and distributed control systems in automation as robotics). Mesh-networks are completely new to me.

When I asked about the latest public version, I thought of a released public version that has gone successfully through the beta testing phase.

But looking at what seems to have been solved in 1.5.344 (Remotec support hopefully solving my scene trigger problems), I may give it a try when that becomes available as public beta.......

Like many here, I have developed an emotional investment with this product and have become obscenely too forgiving.   

I don't blame Micasaverde for putting out slick videos, that's what marketing folks do.  But after consistently delivering such a poor product I have come to believe that Micasaverde must have contempt for their customers.   Are we the tech version of Goldman Sachs “Muppets?” 

I so desperately want to LOVE this product.  She's like an incredibly beautiful woman who just keeps treating me like ..... Shhhh…  dung. What a tease!

If the firmware was anywhere near ready for “prime time” I would gladly value this product in the $300 to $600 range.   If this product met its own claims, it would be a solid value.    In fact, sell me the product that nice brunette in the video is demonstrating.  It’s surely not the one I bought.   MOM WAS RIGHT! You truly do get what you pay for.  By this metric, the Vera-2 is grossly over-priced.

To my techie friends, I caution them to pick any product but Vera.  Kind of an empty suggestion because there is no tooth fairy that makes the product Vera promises.

For myself I continue to be a glutton for punishment.   I’ve sunk several thousand dollars into the system and am currently in a holding pattern.  I faithfully come to these forums and daily click on the Firmware update tab looking for the Promised Land.  I keep hoping I’ll see back-to-back forum entries along the lines of “Shazammm!  Vera 4 is FANTASTIC.”  If that day comes, I’d gladly drop a fist full of Benjamin Franklins on the counter to be first in line. 

This product has such incredible potential!  That’s the part that drives me crazy.  Reminds me of the Marlin Brando line in the movie On the Waterfront.

ROFL !
i just wondering what you would have written when u would have bought the expensive (suppose to work system) version of home domotica.
i think they do a pretty good job and i surely like the fact that one can be really involved in the course of the product. not to mention the great community support.
its like this little kid whining at christmas coz he got the remote control he wanted all year and then have it and has no purpose for it and so is dissapointed and goes warning others for ther grief . my not even 0.000002€

IMHO, as long as there is no competing beautiful woman, we won't see any change. Judging from the HC2 forum, HC2 is way too young ...
