I have a question. i currently own a Vera 3 running UI7 (slowest web UI ever made in the history of all web UIs). and even with UI5 on it the unit was slow. but with UI7 it’s worse. but as an example. i set up a simple scene. if i turn this light on. then turn that light on… sometimes 5 minutes later it will turn the light on. and there is no delay set it’s supposed to be immediately. now I have come to accept that the Vera 3 is just a lighting controller. i discovered this when i purchased 10 security cameras. and the Vera 3 had a complete heart attack when it had to handle that plus the lights and plugins and scenes.
I am looking over the specs on the vera plus. and it really isn’t a big improvement over the Vera 3. does it make that much of a difference???.
how is it that i can go out and purchase a complete nano PC with a dual core 1 Ghz processor. 2 gigs of ram, for about 50 dollars USD and the vera is a single core 500 mhz (with what appears to be no threading support or ability to do more then one task at a time) and 32k of memory??? and the plus is 800 mhz with 256k
i do not understand this. but i really do want to upgrade just don’t know if i should keep going with the Vera line. or look at other solutions. i would really love to see a unit that would be able to run more then one scene concurrently. and not take upwards of 5 minutes to run a scene. but also not have to wait 4-5 seconds for the UI to issue a command like turning the lights on.
tho the Vera does work. and has not caused me a huge amount of issues. it’s just not able to do the things they claim. i find the ability to handle as many devices as they state a hard one to believe. and if the company servers go down or you do not have an internet connection you will not be able to access all of the functions of the Vera. (this i do not like).
if someone owns a Vera Plus can you tell me how the performance is. and could you do something like install blue iris on a computer and install the plugin on the Vera Plus. set up 10 video feeds from the internet in blue iris and see how the Vera Plus performs then… I would like to be able to add the cameras and also all of the live traffic cameras for my area to the Vera. and i don’t want to “throw away” 150 USD for another snail.
