EventWatcher Events & Logs Plugin / Need help to reinstalla Eventwatcher
« Last post by paros on Today at 06:59:52 am »
I have been using Eventwatcher for several years now, great app!
However, my Vera almost died during a beta upgrade and was restored. Now I get the following message when trying to install the app again: Event Watcher[1849] : Startup Lua Failed

I am using the last Stable firmware on a Vera Plus.
Advise needed!
VeraAlerts / Re: VeraAlerts stopped working, how to troubleshoot ?
« Last post by mtx123 on Today at 06:14:43 am »
When I send a test mesaage, I see this in the Veralerts logfile:

Manual Scroll

08   12/12/17 12:12:44.556   JobHandler_LuaUPnP::HandleActionRequest device: 276 service: urn:richardgreen:serviceId:VeraAlert1 action: SendAlert <0x72a30520>

Not sure what it tells me, it seems the message was sent ?
Anyway I did not receive it on my phone.

Thanks, Rafale77, that was very helpful information!

I will set up OpenLuup immediately, looks promising. Lack of hardware is not an issue. :-)
Thank's for help !
I got the zip file you provide me.
But now I don't knoxw how to proceed...
In the Vera devices tab I try to use the Add device button...but the RFX isn't propose in the llist of additional devices. If I use the search button with rfx --> no results.
I suppose if I want to use the files embedded in the zip files, I need to use a manual install, but I don't kow how to proceed.
In My apps I clicked in the Plugin RFCOM Gateway and the application informs me that the plugin has created the following device : #48 RFXCOM controller device. If I click on this link I got a message in red  : rfxcom Can't Detect device.
I suppose iI am facing a USB connexion issue.
How is it possible to test the USB port of my Veraplus ?
Thank you to help me...and sorry for my bad english !

There many alternatives, all more stable and cheaper than vera but with a new learning curve which means you will have to invest time in it.
Home Assistant, OpenHab are the well known local ones and are open-source. Along the same line you can also find Domoticz and iobroker. You will need your own little computer (rasberry pi probably suffice) to host it. I personally use Virtual machines on a server.
I have been fighting issues with the vera myself and have moved a lot of my automation to openLuup. See the section on this forum.

I have not found any of the commercial solutions very attractive maybe except for Homeseer because they are all require cloud processing and are not very stable either (wink, ST)
First, I would try to reboot it by accessing remotely. If not working, you can get a new code also remotely without being at the house by going through your getvera and ecobee accounts

Are you living in EU or US?
For EU you have various options: TKB, Fibaro, Neo Coolcam... all of them support 2500W or more (for TKB it is 3000W)

Or, if you have a bit of DIY skills you can attach contactor relay with desired load level, using any Z-wave relay to switch it ON/OFF.

Thank you so much for your feedback!

I see in my logs now that restarts are at least every hour. Totally unacceptable. I have had Vera systems since Vera2 first came out in 2010, it has never been as bad as this before.
Will submit a support ticket to see what they can find out.

I know we all has a lot of time, effort and money invested in Vera, but seriously, are there alternatives that are more stable? I would consider a switch, a bit tired of fiddling around with endless trouble. I want a stable smart home, not something you need to invest hours and hours in to keep working. I can't even sell my house the unstable, quite useless way it is now, so I have to set everything back to old fashioned before I sell it. That will cost a lot, take a lot of time, and reduce the value too.  Seriously Vera, you need to get this thing working in a reliable and user friendly way, or it will never achieve broad market acceptance.

At least your are geting some data. I only see one circle which is z-wave. No devices are even listed!

it only show old data about routing coming from old firmware. new firmware or vera will probably not have data. it is based on ManualRoute and AutoRoute variables that used to be refreshed in the past
