Any reason to not upgrade? Simple Vera3 deployment UI5 to UI7

Hi All,

It seems that I am being pushed to make a move to UI7 on my Vera3 due to plugin support (primarily for the Philips Hue) and I would appreciate any feedback from the community.

My setup is very simple:

  • ZWave only (Except for the Hue controller)
  • 40 devices (switches, dimmers, remotes and sockets)
  • I use a ramp up script for gradual illumination

That’s pretty much it. My home has been rock solid for over 5-years and I make changes very infrequently. Wife Acceptance Factor is through the roof so the last thing that I need is for everything to come crashing down after an upgrade.

Thank you in advance.

If it works … do not change!

So your username means “change for better”…

…in which case you probably shouldn’t bother.

Do, however, investigate the use of AltUI as a better interface (unless you’re using that already!)

Good call on the “kaizen” reference :wink:

It’s unfortunate that Ui5 no loner works with my Philips HUE but I’ll definitely look into the AltUI. Thank you for the pointer!
