It seemed strange that also vera alerts was not working anymore, so I dug a little deeper.
Apparently the DNS servers were gone or not responding anymore which caused all calls to aliases to simply fail. After adding new DNS servers, everything started working again and I can confirm that the vera 3 tries to connect to https endpoints
First determine if you have the same issue. Log in to your vera3 through ssh.
Then simply try a ping to google.com:
root@MiOS_Serial:~# ping google.com
ping: bad address 'google.com'
My fix: (be careful, you might break stuff…)
Login with root to your vera3 through ssh.
Execute “uci show dhcp” and inspect the “dhcp.@dnsmasq.server” entry (was missing in my config)
Add DNS servers to this variable and restart dnsmasq:
