Looks like the version in the store is v2.0.3.1.
Is the new version not compatible with my nexus 10 tablet ?
I had only uninstall button, not update. I uninstall and then install again from the provided link and now the about tells me that my version is 2.0.3.1.

Question ... been away for 7 months.  Loaded the version on Play Store.  First it erased all the config info.  After renter the info a 'crash' message comes up ??????

OK this less than smart guy can't remember where 'setup' tag is when Auto is configured an up ... must have been too many pain pillsd

You need to remove the existing app before updating to the new one. That is why the app crashed. Many changes have been made since the old version. Swipe left or right to access the rooms or the menu panel on the right.

Been away for a week and when I returned noticed a few changes. The refresh button and microphone where missing from the bar at top. When looking at devices I use to have a list of devices down the left side, now gone, have to swipe the screen to see it.  Did the Wife hit something she should of not have or was there an update. Showing version 3.0.3.0

Rooms and options are on the left and right panels. This is to allow as much screen real estate for the devices and scenes. You simply swipe left or right to access them.

OK guess there was an update when I was away. Had figured out the swipe left and right just was wondering if you could go back to the old. Miss the mic button on the menu bar, will get use to the swipe and selecting it :)
Thanks for all the effort in the app, it really is fantastic!!!

I'll have a look, but this can get messy as I'll need to figure out how to go about maintaining the list of ssid's and proper deletion and adding of old / new ones. Since all of my wireless access points use the same ssid, this will be low priority for me.

If I remember correctly, HomeBuddy allows entering the local SSIDs manually separated by commas. Probably this is the simplest workaround.  :)

Suggestion:
Drop the Local SSIDs ... When you detect a WIFI issue: a http://sta1.mios.com/locator_json.php without a user ... If you get back anything you can select the Vera returned ... otherwise use the Preferred Vera remotely.

That is a great idea, however I do not want to rely on the mios sta servers to figure out if the device is on the same network. I can take your idea into a little different direct. When checking on wifi, I can check the ip address of the device and compare it to the configured vera ip address in the settings. I can also test the ip address to make sure vera responds to a simple query.

Post by: RichardTSchaefer on May 23, 2013, 04:37:20 pm
The only reason I though about checking the MCV server ... is for folks that have more than 1 Vera at different locations ... they will automatically select the correct Vera where they are Wifi connected.

Im trying to connect to my Vera lite from the app but haven't had luck when not on my wifi. Problem is that I don't want remote via micasaverde and have set upp my own tunnel with SSH but problem is that when connecting up via my phone and ssh tunnel I can't get AutHomationHD to connect to the Vera - Surfing to the Micasaverde web ui for it works while on the ssh tunnel but want the app to work aswell. Do you have any pointers how and is it a limitation in the app only going via wifi?

btw Very good and nice looking app.
Title: Re: AutHomationHD 3.0
Post by: garrettwp on May 23, 2013, 10:40:33 pm
In the vera connection settings, choose local connection and enter the port created when making the tunnel and 127.0.0.1 for the ip address.

- Garrett

Title: Re: AutHomationHD 3.0
Post by: guest51266 on May 24, 2013, 05:27:54 am
Tried it but it still doesn't work
This works setting up my tunnel on my phone and then use the find Autoconfig tool in AuthomationHD. It finds the Vera with the correct IP address I have on it in my network.
But it doens't find anything and can't connect after that.

Im using SSHTunnel https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.sshtunnel
Running it with global proxy.

Setting the local ip to 127.0.0.1 didn't help. Would be very neat to have this up and running so I can have a remote connection without beeing spied on by Micasaverde.

Title: Re: AutHomationHD 3.0
Post by: garrettwp on May 24, 2013, 07:11:53 am
Unfortunately I do not use sshtunnel nor do I have my phone rooted. I either use openvpn or connectbot. Since sshtunnel writes iptables for socks connections, the only thing I can think of trying is configure your connection ip for Vera's correct ip address and see if that works. Since I can not test the app and try to guide you further, I will have to help you blind here. Can you provide me the details of how you have the Vera settings configured? You can pm me a screen shot or the details if you like.

Title: Re: AutHomationHD 3.0
Post by: guest51266 on May 25, 2013, 05:01:03 am
Ok, the strange thing is that your app finds the vera with autoconfig tool -  but it cannot after that retrive any data. So I suspect the function for finding the vera doesn't run over same protocol or port. Read somewhere about AuthomationHD maybe becomming open source - then I would be able to debug it myself since I have rooted and running a ssh solution. Maybe even inlcuding the ssh tunneling into the AuthomationHD so there is that as an option for connecting to your vera.  I would supect that many ppl don't like the fact that their dependent on MicasaVerdes servers for remote connecting your just the fact that all their home traffic routes trough their servers and are saved.
Title: Re: AutHomationHD 3.0
Post by: garrettwp on May 25, 2013, 07:39:09 am
The reason it finds your vera is because the app uses Mios's services to locate your vera using the following link:

http://sta1.mios.com/locator_json.php

and

http://sta2.mios.com/locator_json.php

This returns because it is hosted on MCV's servers and not being detected from your Vera. Is the ssh server you are connecting to with SSHTunnel on the same network as your Vera? What settings have you tried in the Vera Connection Details? It would help to let me know what you tried. My app works perfectly with using a vpn and connectbot (using local port forwarding).

As for AutHomation going opensource. That is not happening any time soon. I am not sure where you read that. But it might have been an older discussion about someone asking if I would consider it and my response was that as long as I am active working on the app, it would remain close sourced for the time being.

I just wanted to put a big +1 on handling multiple SSIDs one way or another, especially for us Sonos users - Sonos AP are great for this kind of use, since they have very good coverage in the house, but you cannot set the SSID on them to match your "normal" AP(s).

Title: Re: AutHomationHD 3.0
Post by: guest51266 on May 26, 2013, 05:27:16 am
Very strange that about sta1 and sta2 locator finding my vera since my vera is not accessible from their servers. It's totally blocked from the outside and the only thing It might use is then my external IP address which seems odd at least.

By the way is there a way of getting a debuglog or something out of the app.. Like getting the responses it gets and etc.
Cause it says syncing data and then I get Error : Invalid JSON response.

How do you set up with the connectbot?

The reason it finds your vera is because the app uses Mios's services to locate your vera using the following link:

app works great. only minor thing is when pressing back button it first goes to the left pane and then exits, this is not a problem but when restarting the app again it starts in the left pane. would be nice if it starts in main screen.
multiple ssid would be nice too as i have 2 different wireless system 2.4 and 5ghz with different names.
get connection time-outs when issueing a command while on 3G and before command is done android auto-switch to wifi.
so far the authomation app runs a lot faster then v2 version and voice command works a lot better now.
great progress ! :-)

edit : thinking about multiple ssid and read the answers from richard .. probably its best to check the saved veras local ip's if they respond and accordingly connect local if it does and remote if it doesnt

Garrett,

Any way you could add a BypassZones function for the Alarm Partition (Ademco/Honeywell) where you can input the zones to bypass and your pincode. It is possible with the Honeywell Ademco Vista Alarm Panels via AD2USB plugin via UI5. I can create a scene to do it but the zones and pincode remain static and stored which is not as useful or secure as if they were inputted each time. I know from the scenes I created that it sends the action: "BypassZones" to service: urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:VistaAlarmPanel1 and requires the parameters Zones and PINCode.

Any help would be awesome.

I received your email, but I'll respond to this post. Because this is not part of the alarm partition spec that was created and designed by the community, I would have to create new code to separate this from the alarm partition code in my app. This will cause me to now maintain two sets of code for similar functions but with the extension of adding additional functions for the (Ademco / Honeywell) panel. Which I am trying to avoid. I'll add this to my feature list, but it will not be priority right now.

That is correct, but the camera plugin in vera needs to be modified to use these presets. The no implementation error is due to the plugin not having the appropriate code to issue the presets to the camera.

presets of foscam HD cam are not working and the direction controls are reversed. i.e. cam to the left goes to the right and right goes left.

You need to look at the camera implementation file. The controls are configured correctly in the app and they reference the correct services. So I would double check that the implementation file is configured correctly.

Hi Garrett

i have a question which i posted earlier but not sure if you can help.
I use your app a lot and it is great.
I have integrated Ip cameras in VERA and when I view the cams trough the vera webinterface i can configure for VERA to switch on lights when the CAM is viewed, this will help for instance when viewing the camera in the evening.

However, this function does not work when i view the camera through your app. it does not switch the light units.
I am not sure if this is a easy thing to implement or not?

thanks in advance for your reply.

The controls are pointing to the correct service actions. Is your foscam implementation have the controls reversed for any reason? As for the danfoss what type of thermostat is it? I may have fixed this in the next release. Is this for a heater device or full thermostat?

Hi Garret,

Would it be possible to include this plugin in your app:  http://apps.mios.com/plugin.php?id=3506
It would be nice to set a temperature via your app.

I'll have a look and at it to my list. I can not tell you if and when it will get added.

Awesome app.. Great interface!! Thanks so much

A side note - Netatmo sensors aren't displaying any data in the app for the following sensors - C02, Noise level, Pressure.

C02 should display the number in the "CurrentLevel" field, followed by PPM (found in the UnitsDisplay field). Same with the Noise level and pressure fields. I hope that helps if you don't have a Netatmo.

I've hidden them for now..

P.S. This app doesn't have ads, where do I go to send you my money for your hard work?

Hi,

I am having a problem logging remotely to mios.com.. I have a veralite that came with UI6 and it seems that the control panel is through getvera not mios any more for this version.

When i check the configuration in the settings of the application, it seems to try to connect remotely on mios and does not find my unit..

Am I missing something or the app is may be not compatible with ui6?

You app is awsome by the way, very nice interface and control using NFC is really nice.

If you have read the top of this sub-forum or the description of the app in the play store. You would have been informed that the app is not compatible with UI6 in it's current form. Only the alpha version of the app 3.3.x.x is compatible with UI6.

See the following:

AutHomation is not compatible with UI6. (http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,22831.0.html)
AutHomationHD 3.3.0.3 Alpha (http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,17457.0.html)

Garrett,

I love the app.  I only have 1 android device which was purchased just a remote for my living room.   All my other devices are iOs.   A question I have:

When using HomeWave to control my thermostat (Honeywell YTH8320ZW1007),  I can set a temp and when the next program cycle comes around it will change the setting to that program.

After I installed AuthomationHD, my Tstat will stay at the setting of AuthomationHD no matter the next program cycle.

Any Ideas?

I am not sure I am following. Can you explain in more detail what you are trying to do? AutHomation uses the standard hvac control services.

Say my away from home temp setting programmed in the tstat is 77.  I stayed at home today and dropped air temp to 71 via HomeWave.  At 5:00pm my next setting on the tstat says to make air temp 72.  The Tstat will change to 72.  If I wanted temp to be at 71 still I would need to adjust it back, which is how I would like it. I don't want the tstat staying on a temp setting and I forgot to change it.

Same situation with AuthomationHD instead of HomeWave will not allow the tstat to change the temp to 72 at 5:00pm, but will keep temp at 71.  By this method, if I decided to set the temp at 65 for whatever reason, it would continue at 65 until I change it to something else.  That is why I programmed the tstat with a schedule as well as z wave capable.

I am trying to find out if this was intended or can it be changed?

The app uses the same commands that Vera uses to control the thermostat. Does the same thing happen when controlled via the Vera UI? I do not know what inveltr uses in his HomeWave app, but my app uses the appropriate calls for each control point. My understanding is that when you adjust the thermostat, it sets it into a hold state and the schedule will not fire until the hold is removed. I do not use the built in schedule of the thermostat (trane) as I use the google calendar plugin to control my schedule.

Thank you for a GREAT app. Had it been a pay-app i would buy it in a heartbeat.

Any chance we could get full support for the Netatmo weather-station, i am thinking CO2, Sound, rain-gauge etc etc?

Would be greatly appreciated.

Regards
Janne

Last I checked the sensors that do not have a standard device type like CO2 use the generic device type. I use the device type to know what I need to display and control. Because of the generic device type I have no easy way to know what to display. There was talk in standardizing the additional sensor types but movement on that has stalled. Until we can agree on the device types and services for those sensors it will have to wait to be included in the app.

Did you compare all settings on your phone with the ones on your tablet? It could be as simple as a typo somewhere.
Or clear the data and cache for Authomation on your phone and reconfigure it.

Post by: jmurphy644 on January 31, 2015, 07:42:10 pm
The settings were the same.   Clearing the data and cache fixed it though... Thanks,  I should have thought of that.

Love Authomationhd... I combine it with Tasker, Vera,  and a new Logitech remote home hub to do all sorts of cool stuff

Garret,
I have a dynamic IP  address at home and, unless there's another way to do this, I enter my WAN IP in your app which is then forwarded to my Veralite at home.  The ip field in the app doesn't allow alpha-text entries, but just numbers.

Instead of having to update the ip in the app, can it allow a dynamic DNS entry?

Thanks!

Hi reizac,

Garret has stopped developing this app and has moved on to different HomeAuto platforms.
I have AutohomationHD configured and have never used my wan IP.
It can use the remote login method but its best to setup your vera with a static IP.
