After taking a break for the summer, I'm back to work on this some more. I have been kind of debating switching to openHAB (still might), but for now I'm with Vera.
Firstly, I want to finish the thermostat support. It looks to be fairly straightforward. I'm still trying to think of a good layout for the watch, but it shouldn't be too much longer.
Secondly, I want to add autonomous watch support. Most Android wearables have their own wifi radios. This would allow them to communicate with Vera (sans any smartphone) as long as they are connected to a wifi hotspot. It may not be too helpful/useful, but I would like to see how well it functions.
