Thanks for all the great info… It didn’t auto discover on Veralite for me either, but got it to work by combing through both forums. There is information on the Roomie forum @ forum.micasaverde.com/index.php? … _msg=92968, but here is a quick summary that worked with Roomie Remote 1.7 and Vera firmware 1.5.
- Set up Vera with a static IP address (or have your router always assign the same one through DHCP) - For example: 10.0.1.68
- Setup the Vera as a device in the room
Select/Create a room
IP Address you assigned above
- Create/Edit an activity
Select “Remote Design”
- Add/Edit a command button
Name the botton or select an image
"Add Command…", choose device "MiCasaVerde Lighting"
Choose a command category (eg: .LIGHT DIM, .LIGHT ON, .LIGHT OFF, .SCENE RUN, etc.).
Enter the Integration ID
For .LIGHT ON/OFF this is the ID number on the Advanced Tab for the device in Vera UI5 (you have to scroll down to find it and don’t use the altid)
For .SCENE RUN, you can find the Scene ID at the top of the Vera UI5 when you edit a scene
For .LIGHT DIM you also need to enter the Brightness (0-100)
That’s all there is to it… I’ve had fun adding lighting, screen control and other environment effects to each room and activity. Some as separate “Activities” such as “Ready Room” or “Read” that only control Vera. Others as commands within an existing activity such as “Watch DirecTV” where it will automatically make sure the screen is lowered, turn the lights to 50% when I pause the movie, etc…
I am impressed with the room/activity based user experience and it has a high WAF (Wife Acceptance Factor). Unfortunately, the Roomie Remote app does not let you get feedback yet (i.e., you can’t see if the light is on/off or what temperature it is).
Best of luck!
