You should All try homewave, for 1/8th thé price of Ivera, this application is 8 times more efficient, flexible and reliable.

Which one allows to arm and disarm DSC EVL3 alarm systems on an Android?

On iOS, HomeWave should support it (please let me know if it doesn't... :) )
HomeWave is available in the App Store!  Turn your iPhone/iPad into an easy-to-use remote control for Vera.

I bought a fibaro home center 2 controller for tests and I think that comes with a good interface...I hope reliable like homewave and vera3.

This thread is a bit dated, but instead of opening a new one - has there been any exciting development here lately? I just got my veralite last night so haven't really had too much time to play around with smart phone apps yet.

@tiwas: try control cube.
The apps Website is www.control-cube.com
The cool thing about the app is it has awesome graphics and barely takes a minute to set up. Plus if you have Sonos at home it integrates with sonos directly

P.S: I am the app developer

You may want to state you are the developer of the app.

@garrettwp: Control Cube is mentioned in exactly 3 threads. That hardly qualifies as "flooding the forums" especially when I'm giving a valid response to a question/post

Thanks, will check it out :)

Ideally, I'd like something graphical with floor plans and such to convert my old tablet to a remote control :D

For now yes, Control Cube is iOS only. We are working on an android version though.

Looks good from the preview. I was planning to use a cheap Android device instead of an iPad for the wall controls, but might have to test out this thing and look for a cheap iPad2 or something.

I have been looking for decent looking GUIs for a while now, so far I have been mostly decided on AuthomationHD for Android, but not completely convinced.

@GC: Thanks for the feedback. I look forward to hearing your input on usability and features after you test it.

If you plan to invest in a couple of Sonos or GC devices as well. you will find Control Cube to be invaluable because it's the only app that can integrate with these devices smoothly out of the box.

By the way, I am currently working on the iPhone app. Should be out in about 1-2 weeks.

Question, I use Authomation for Android which in my opinion is the best app on any device. Thanks Garrett! It seems to support everything I have in the home. (ELK alarm, Squeezebox, Netatmo, Hue) all thru Vera plug-ins and works solidly. One of the best features of this app seems to be missing in all IOS apps unless I'm missing it somewhere. That's the ability to have a device on your homescreen like an Android widget. Is this possible to have these widgets or shortcuts? Does ControlCube or HomeWave have this feature? I don't want to keep buying apps that don't have this feature...  :)  The reason I'm shopping for this is I have an overhead door in our warehouse that is on z-Wave that I need to put on other users iPhones... Thanks for your help!
