Title: Datamine helped me brick a VeraPlus
Post by: anybraaten on December 05, 2018, 06:29:30 pm
My Vera Plus is bricked - caused by attempt to install DataMine 2.0

Tried to install DataMine 2 having backed up first.
Data Mine consumed all of my memory - seen from ALTUI

Attempted solution - reinstall backup
Result Boot Loop (?)* Power led on, WiFi led on, Internet+Service led on/off 10 minutes - looping every 15 minutes.

Attempted Solution:
* Power on/off - same result
* Reset 6x within 6 sec - no response
* Sync + Select - trying to use WiFi - No response, no Blinking WiFi led indicating WPS.

Solution ???:
Order a new one  and keep away from DataMine?
Switch to HomeSeer ?
Switch to SmartThings/Fibaro/???

Suggestions ?

Find another controller. Vera doomed to failure. I went through two that bricked, support could not help.

It must be the Vera Plus. At one time I had DM2 on my Vera 3 and it worked fine.  I ended up uninstalling because firmware updates broke all of my DM settings. It was more trouble than it was worth.
