The Vera Beta Software Update Program allows users to try out pre-release software. The feedback you provide on features, quality, and usability helps us identify issues, fix them, and improve the overall Vera user experience.

Please note that since the public beta software has not yet been commercially released, it may contain bugs, errors, or technical inaccuracies. It may not function as well as general availability software releases.

Please submit feedback via the following email address:

Be sure to back up your Vera Smart Home Controller before installing beta software. Install only on non-production controllers that are not mission critical. We strongly recommend installing on a secondary controller, and not on your primary controller.

General / Re: Adding a yearly trigger
« Last post by PrincessCleavage on April 19, 2018, 04:12:16 am »
I second PLEG. Attached is my yearly schedule for an outlet I use at Christmas.
I have previously attempted to add the pleg plugin but it did not seem intuitive on what to do next so I have always removed it and worked out luua method

In my case, I read this user guide:,21603.0.html and lots of trial and error. Eventually it penetrated my thick skull and viola - it made sense.

Similar to your request, another option is watching outside temperature since "summer" is really relative to outside temperature. In my case, I monitor outside temperature and if < 60F, I turn my thermostat to Heating Mode. If > 65F, then cooling mode.

My heating/cooling setpoints are set by House Mode. Home is 68/75, Away is 65/78, Night is 65/72, and Vacation is 60/80.

So I seldom touch the thermostat regardless of season. This is especially helpful spring and fall, where you may be heating in the morning and cooling in the afternoon.

I used to do this in Scenes but eventually move it all to PLEG.
I think this might be the best solution and I already had a aeotec multisensor 6 on order for outside which will show the outside temperature.
Thanks for the suggestion!

See conditional scene execution on this forum. You'll find date ranges.
Just execute it daily and turn it on or off using the range.
I thought of doing this but it seemed crazy to add extra load to my ver executing a tasks each day for nothing instead of once a year on the correct date

Yesterday someone from Vera tried to get it to work, but it won't...
But they said it will get included in the future. So I'll just wait with this sensor.

@Inzax please correct the heading from 7.0.2b to 7.0.26b
Power Management / Re: Reading data from new smart meter
« Last post by eiriktakle on April 19, 2018, 02:15:41 am »
Hi All,

The electricity company just upgraded the meter in my house to a ?smart meter? which reports usage, voltage etc back by it self. This meter has an HAN port (home automation network) which can be activated, as far as I know this outputs usage, voltage, power factor etc via an m-bus(meter bus) protocol. Does anybody have any experience with this? And what would be required to get this data into my vera system?


Where are you located? If you're in Norway I might be able to point you in the right direction..
Vera UI discussion / Re: VeraEdge very slow

Will the rest of us benefit from that updated Z-Wave code?  Did they say when it would be in the official firmware?

I don't understand why my vera edge started having issues, it worked great for a long time. It does seem this beta firmware resolved the delays I was having.

I believe anyone can get this beta firmware, you just have to request it and apparently you cannot restore a backup if there's an issue.

I also noticed an email the other day about vera server downtime in preparation for an upgrade, maybe this beta is getting close to release.
General / False/Repeatitive Controller Down/Up Notices
« Last post by Falcogeorge on April 18, 2018, 11:31:10 pm »
I noted this as a fix on the latest beta update release notes...

" Controller Down" alerts are sent when the relay servers are merely switching
    * Note: Controllers switch from one relay server to another as a backup only when the controller cannot communicate with the main server assigned to it. Reasons why a controller switches depend on external factors like the customer's network, ISP or server issues, etc. If the connection drops, the controller jumps to another server
