Hi there

I have had Vera email alerts on various devices which have been working well for the last couple of years. Lately they have been very delayed ie by hours and sometimes even doubling up.

Any suggestions?

Not sure how it relates to this thread. You might want to start a new topic. It sounds like the mios servers are having issues.

I addressed this by doing something brutal: I took it offline forever,83627.0.html

I am now accessing my vera remotely only through VPN and manage all the various mios server functionalities with local alternatives.

There are multiple threads on this section of the forum discussing alternative controllers. There are much greater problems with the vera than the offline/online notifications from the server.
I have to say, I am at a point where I am reasonably happy with the Vera with the aim to get down to 1 luup reload/month (1st of the month at midnight) which I think I am very close to.

I am just wondering if anyone is seeing the same issue I am.

Recently I upgrade my Vera Lite from UI5 to UI7. After doing this many of the scenes I created with PLEG stopped working correct so I decided I would reread the PLEG instructions, create a new PLEG and recreate all of them. This also would give me a chance to clean them up as I had schedules, triggers and properties defined that were not being used.

I created a new PLEG and started creating my triggers, schedules, conditions and actions one at a time then tested them. Each time before I tested them, I would reload the LUA and reboot the Vera.

I added 1 scene, went to test it but my Vera would not respond to the scene I just created (Turn on a light when the front door is opened). When I tried to turn on the light using AutHomation app from my phone, it didn't work either and when I tried to turn on the light from the Vera console, it didn't work either.

I unplugged the power cord from the Vera, waited a minute or 2, plugged it back in again, waited a minute or so and then tried again. Opened the door and nothing, tried AutHomation, nothing, logged into Vera again via laptop and tried to toggle the light on and nothing.

I then unplugged the USB PLM from the wall and the Vera power. Waited 5 minutes this time, plugged the USB PLM back into the wall, waited a few minutes and then powered the Vera Lite again.

Opened the door, and the light went on as expected.

I decided to try to add another scene so when night is registered and the living room light is off, turn on the front porch lights. I reloaded the LUA and reboot the Vera again.

When Vera came up again, tested the scene and it did not work. I tried to open the door and the light did not come on either which this scene was just working.

Went through the process again of unplugged the USB PLM and power from the Vera, waited again and when everything came back up, this scene worked as well as the first scene.

Is anyone else having (or have) and issue like this?

I have added a Status Report. Not sure if it is helpful but figured it couldn't hurt

Title says it all.
Sick of the alternating Offline/Reliably connected messages every day, usually 2 or 3 times.

I don't buy the standard line from Vera about switching servers. If that's the case, it's predictable and those events can be specifically broken out and handled differently than actual connectivity problems.

Either someone has an answer, or I need to go controller shopping.
How do I fix it?
What controller should I replace it with?
I have a similar function happening and the only difference I see between yours and mine is in the condition my "and" is all capital letter.

I am not sure is this is a requirement but in every example I have seen posted and in all of my conditions, the operators are in all capitals. Maybe this is why it isn't firing.

Sorry for such a delayed reply to your post. I'm not sure what you mean by an 'impulse' switch. Is it like a switch with one button that when clicked toggles the state of the device from On to Off or Off to On?
Thank you, everything works as intented, no need for microswitch. Key is to understand you don't need to manually/automatically "untrip"
Reactor / Re: Reactor 2.2 Developer Preview

Developer preview 2.2stable-19017 is now available. See the first post in this thread for instructions to fetch and install.

New for this preview release:

* A "getstate insertion tool" on the Expressions tab to help streamline the process of finding the right service and state variable if you need to incorprate a device value into an expression (or just grab it as the entire expression) (thanks to Buxton for this suggestion);
* The "Conditions" tab now displays the current value of the subject variable as you are editing a service condition (thanks to Buxton for this suggestion);
* The expression parser (LuaXP) has been updated to the latest version, which includes new functions randomseed(n) and random( [i [,j]] ) (suggestion by bRock), and enhances the min/max functions to operate on array arguments;
* The device information database has been updated with additional devices and services (IPhone Locator, World Weather), and optimized a bit; the new database is smaller than recent previous versions.

The update also incorporates a number of fixes and optimizations in anticipation of a general public release.

Unfortunately the core implemetations code on the vera does not appear accessible so I don't know whether they run as job or run

FWIW, IIRC, a job will return a job number as part of its return data, whereas a run does not.
Thank you all, I will give it a try and report back.

I have currently the diffculty that none of the conditions and changes that I made are saved. The device is default each time I access the settings. Tried deleting, re-creating and rebooting, nothing did help. Any suggestions ?

OK, so assuming you're hitting the "Save" button on the way out (sorry, I have to say it), try doing both a Luup reload and a full reload/cache-flush of your browser. This is often necessary after creating new devices.

To reload Luup: I like to just go to Apps > Develop apps > Test Luup code and type in luup.reload() and hit GO. Then wait. It takes a minute or two, depending on the size of your configuration and type of controller.

To hard-reload the browser: CTRL-F5 for Chrome/Windows, SHIFT-F5 for Firefox/Windows. I'm not a Mac guy, but usually something like CMD+SHIFT+R seems to work.
