Better than the vendor provided optii s I have the latest VeraPlus, and it's great, interface is nice... However the apps and tools aren't that flexible or responsive. Using tasker to create widgets on my home screen gives immediate responsiveness. And programing scenes is far easier thru AutoVera than thru the advanced options on the controller. Plus, easy to do voice control with tasker, which makes it even better.
Love the app, does exactly what I need App works amazingly, does everything I want it to. Integrates seamlessly with my Vera3 and I'm able to control all of my devices easily. Notification on device state change is pretty cool too. I've been able to set up some awesome tasks and scenes with tasker and my Vera3. Props to Joao, looks like he's done it again with this app. Edit: Apparently there is an unlock key that I missed. Love it! Changing my review to 5 stars.
Sort of powerful, but a resource hog The part of AutoVera which runs as an app on your Vera controller is a resource hog, considerably slowing down response times while installed. The app itself is also not particularly powerful. You can more safely, and easily, I'll point out, duplicate this behavior using Vera Alerts and Tasker to read notifications. As for ibteracting with Vera, find another solution. AutoVera has the typically cryptic UI that is standard for apps by this dev. I use some of his other apps, but this one stinks.
It does in fact work with the VeraEdge I've always entered my Vera username using title case. Don't do that. With AutoVera / UI7 / Vera Edge combo, you need to enter your username as all lowercase. I've said it before and I'll continue hammer on this issue - all of this developer's apps could benefit immensely from having formal, comprehensive documentation. I can't be the only one frustrated with this. Until recently, documentation and support existed almost exclusively as a G+ community. There is now a forum, though it is new and not yet very populated. But, community support is not a substitute for documentation. Regarding the app itself - like many other plugins from this developer, it is quite powerful and flexible, but a bit complex and difficult to reign in if what you're looking to do is make something resembling an app rather than just have a couple of singular tasks that perform a singular function. In my case it took weeks to make something with AutoVera and AutoCast that turns on all the televisions in my house and displays information about what area of the house smoke or CO was detected in.
I got it working, and it works pretty well with my VeraLite UI7...there are some scene names it just won't trigger, even though AutoVoice is getting them right...but if I change the scene name to something else it will work. I would like to see better documentation...there's only 5 tutorials for specific setups, and the website address posted everywhere that is supposed to be the help site is a dead link. Otherwise, it does what it's supposed to do, I hope development continues so I can hold on to my Vera for another year!
Excellent with vera edge Works really well for controlling devices and capturing the status of devices. This enables some quite complex home automation based on location and setting up events that won't trigger when you don't want them to (that's what variables are for). Excellent and really makes vera much more powerful.
