Upgrading / APP TO PRINT OUT DETAILED REPORT OF VERA CONFIGURATION
« Last post by Bhummel99 on Today at 10:16:07 pm »
I just upgraded my Vera 3 to a Vera Plus because I kept getting out of memory errors on the Vera 3.

I did the controller shift and moved my configuration to the new Vera Plus.   The new unit works .... kind of.

I am having all sorts of weird problems.  I cannot delete devices that are offline or have been removed.  I cannot add any devices.  Sometimes, response is very slow controlling devices.

Vera Support was outstanding and helped me stabilize the system so it runs, but the underlying issues are still there.  Support finally confessed that the migration option is not very good and should be avoided  That means a complete system-rebuild from scratch.    Oh well, Microsoft has been doing the same thing to me with Windows for 30 years.

Now to my question.

I cannot find a way to get a very detailed report from the Vera Plus as to its configuration.  All I can figure is that I have to print web pages of the devices and scenes, etc.  It's not a good way to do this.

Has anyone written an app or have some way that I can generate a detailed report to help my rebuild my system?

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Here's a quick chart that I use to look at my data. Could probably be made a whole lot better, but I swiped it and haven't taken the time to look into it. Grafana may be in my future, just not right now.

Glad that the RF TX works OK. Unfortunately I'm still not happy with the RF learning, although the IR learning works OK (noting that learnt codes can be highly problematic). What are you controlling?

An RF ceiling fan.  I used the RM bridge to learn the code, and your plugin to send it.  Both can run at the same time too.  Yours has the advantage of not dying when the power goes off to my TV running the bridge, as I found out recently, and also the temperature, which I didn't even knew it did until recently.

Oh, I should add that it doesn't like its children being separated into different rooms.  I had crashes when I did that, but it's probably a Vera thing.

Lock, Motion & Security Control / Mimo2+ Inputs

Simple question, can a MIMO2+ monitor a dry contact and if so what is the configuration setup? In my alarm panel I have form C contacts set up to trigger when the panel is armed, and armed stay mode for set backs on ZWave thermostats.

While I was trying to figure out why geofencing worked more for my iPhone than my wife's, I found that when the iPhone goes into low power mode at 20% battery it turns off background app refresh. This would explain why the geofence worked 80% of the time for her.

I had to exempt the vera app from power conservation on the droid.  Perhaps this is an option on Iphone?

Here is what I typically do:
1) Just before I backup, I backup z-wave network (see screen shot below).
2) When z-wave backup is complete (may take about 15 minuted), I select create back up, which prompts me to save it to a local drive. I use a NAS to safeguard my Vera files. I have quite a few saved backups with the z-wave network.

Not sure why no one responded all these years. It is pretty obvious to me how to back up my Vera.

Interesting---I have a fairly large Z-Wave network and my back-ups take less than a minute on my VP.

It is probably related to me using a Vera 3. It seems, regardless of size of the network, it takes the same amount of time.

An AND list has the form

command1 && command2
command2 is executed if, and only if, command1 returns an exit status of zero.

I agree.
Z-Wave, so called compatibility is also a huge issue also.

Yes I agree that every mobile OS and phone is different so getting the same results from every piece of hardware and software platform is next to impossible.
I quit advertising it as a feature and more of a "If it works for You" item.
Sad, because it is awesome when it works great.

General / Re: WHY Vera not allow to add the same name to multiple sensors!?

I guess it is the same reason you would not name your kids the same name.
How would they know know who you were calling if you called them?
