I’m back after a lengthy hiatus having a non-home-automation-driven actual life so I’m sure I’ve missed A LOT of developments, progress, and war stories. In my absence the current systems performed reliably with no apparent problems. But now that I’m back its time to migrate my Vera 3 UI5 world to the Vera Plus UI7. So I’m looking for pointers to a reliable, glitch free method to make the transition.
I currently have two Vera 3s;
Vera A runs almost all the lights and sensors, Virtual Motion Sensors updated from Blue Iris, Smoke Detectors, (7) instances of PLEG, Vera Alerts;
Vera B supports a few special purpose switches and sensors, the DSC Alarm Interface, Arduino Subsystem, GCal3 Calendar Interface, (2) instances of PLEG, Vera Alerts;
The two units talk to each other using HTTP commands to set switches on the other unit.
I have just received two Vera Plus units with the intent to deploy them in the same configuration. Can anyone point me to the latest, greatest, tested and proven, sure fire method of making the transition without leaving a trail of ruble behind? Some of the posts reflect what appear to be significant problems in making the trasnsition.
Is it smarter to go UI5->UI7 on the Vera 3 and THEN move to the Vera Plus? Just go from Ver3 UI5 straight to Vera Plus UI7?
