General / Re: VeraPlus - Bluetooth Devices
« Last post by jeubanks on April 20, 2018, 09:43:58 am »
This is what I've got from support some time ago:

Quote
The missing ?Bluetooth Settings? and ?Other Bluetooth devices? is related to the latest update, they got removed in the latest build as we are working on a different type of integration that is BLE enabled and we had to remove those, we do not have an ETA for when the new wizards and settings would be released.

Is there any news? I cannot see any bluetooth menu in Vera Plus

At this time Bluetooth is no longer supported/available in any form.  There have been no updates or information provided by support on ETA for availability.

I just bought one of these Neo Coolcam motion sensors the version 2 one that has a Temperature sensor on it.

I also added it to Vera as the  "Dome Motion Detector with Light Sensor DMMS1" device. I now have four new devices in Vera see screen shot.

In Vera I associated my Kitchen Main Light device to the motion sensor in Association Group 2.

The LUX level does change in Vera OK in dark / light etc.

However the light turns on in the daytime.

The user manual I found here

Parameter 5: Ambient illumination Lux Level
This parameter can be set a lux level value which determines when light sensor is activated. If the ambient illumination level falls below this value, and a person moves across or stands within the detected area , PIR detector will send a Z-Wave ON command(i.e. BASIC_SET value = parameter 3#) to an associated device and activate it.
Size: 2 Byte, Default Value: 100


However when the LUX level is well over 100 the light still turns on. I would expect the light to only turn on when the LUX level drops below 100.

I then manually set parameter #5 to a value of 50 but the light still turns on when the current LUX value is over 50.

So not sure what's happening?

EDIT: Had to set parameter #8 to a value of 1 and now it seems to be working.

Parameter 8: Lux Level Function Enable
If this parameter is set to ?1?, and when Lux level is less than the value defined by parameter #5, PIR sensor will send a BASIC_SET command frame(i.e. BASIC_SET (value = parameter 3) to an associated device and activate it. If Lux Level is greater than the value defined by parameter #5, PIR sensor will not send a BASIC_SET command frame.

I stickied the post - Love the idea  :P

My Vera is called Jeeves. A reference to the show "Jeeves and Wooster" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeeves_and_Wooster , where is Jeeves is the butler.

...I couldn't help think of the 1980s flick "Electric Dreams".

Very sadly, I believe I remember quite a few details of that flick!  A pressure sensor under the doormat to detect who entered, IIRC... showing my age.

General / Your Vera's Name
« Last post by Tillsy on April 20, 2018, 07:27:07 am »
I have a habit of naming my devices after starships - Enterprise, Galactica, Atlantis, EventHorizon, Daedalus, Sulaco, etc.

When it came to my Vera though, I couldn't help think of the 1980s flick "Electric Dreams".  A guy (Miles) buys a computer and it offers to connect and automate everything in his house.  An incident causes the computer becomes sentient and IT falls in love with Miles' girlfriend - things get pretty nasty given it has control over the entire house LOL :D

So I named my Vera Edgar, after the computer in that movie.

Curious if others had a story behind the name of their Vera?

Lighting & Load Control / Re: Multi-Tap Scene triggering

It does show for these devices and had wondered if it wouldn?t enable me to do so. I will read more about central scene setup. Thanks!

Thank you for the info. Any suggestion as to which might be easiest to do? Which might work best? I?m okay with a slight delay, I?m using two ZWP-WS-100 in another setting to sync on/off and there is a half second delay but it isn?t bad at all.

Getting Started & Initial Setup / Re: Questions about upgrade
« Last post by Sorin on April 20, 2018, 05:31:35 am »
Hello Lou,

Welcome to Vera.
You've come just "in time" of a bit of a transition regarding the Z-wave migration from older/legacy controllers.

First of all, if you have any doubts or insecurities about the migration process, it's better to ask our Customer Care to do it for you, in the first place.(contact details in my signature)

The document you've come upon will be dropped soon, as with the yesterday's BETA firmware, the migration process is A LOT easier. It's basically a matter of restoring a backup of the old controller, on the new one. With some caveats because your unit is still on UI5, as I will explain:

1. Create a local backup of your UI5 controller. ( Setup->Backup -  1.backup z-wave network ->2. create backup) (it will not be used. it's just for safe keeping)
2. Upgrade your UI5 unit to UI7, using the URL:  Vera3, VeraLite, & VeraLite G: https://download.mios.com/release/BETA/726/rt3662_Luup_ui7-1.7.1026-en-mios.squashfs from Setup -> Firmware -> URL for Vera custom firmware:
3. Wait for the unit to get upgraded to UI7 (DO NOT POWER CYCLE, not even after the 15 minutes timer, if it doesn't come back contact Customer Care team)
4. While on UI7, navigate to Settings-> Backup-> Create a full backup of your system including Z-Wave (see step 1). Download it on your computer.
5. Setup your NEW Vera.
6. Restore the VeraLite UI7 backup, previously created.

Enjoy!

Getting Started & Initial Setup / Re: VeraEdge and Fibaro SD and FD won't pair
« Last post by Sorin on April 20, 2018, 05:03:11 am »
I'd love to know how Vera could tell the controller wasn't in EU mode, and what they did to reset it. I'm having real problems pairing any Zwave device with my Vera plus, but it used to work fine. Wonder if it somehow has got switched?

Vera support - can you help?

Thanks
Phil

Z-Wave locale info can be found on your Vera's dashboard, under Settings->Z-Wave Settings.

But keep in mind that these are extremely rare cases when the software locale is different than the locale printed on the bottom level of the hub.
