My Vera Lite arrived the other day and the first thing I wanted to do was set it up to control the Sonos… (UI5)
So I followed the published route - Sonos Wireless HiFi Music Systems and it appeared under ‘Other’ and ‘All’ Devices.
A quick look at the IP on the Sonos itself and I updated the device settings to reflect the zone I wanted to control.
All looked pretty straight forward ( hey i thought I can do this) … BUT … then the device just dissapeared !!! I looked under Other’ and ‘All’ Devices again, but nothing was there… I looked in Scenes and Advance and nothing was listed, all that remained of my endeavours was the xml/lu files still sat in the App/Dev area
Undeterred as it was the first few hours of my parenting this new Vera, I thought I’d try again, plus as I noticed there wa a firmware update available I proceeded to up date the device and also choose a factory reset so I could start a fresh…
Next try, I did exactly the same, the Sonos device appeared, I updated the settings and the got through to the Scene and onto advance, but this time the device had a red circle with a diagonal line through it, I could do nothing with it.
I saw another post that talked about refreshing your browser which I did and the device disappeared again!!? I looked for it everywhere, the files were still there, but the device had gone.
I tried to add it again, exactly the same steps but nothing this time, it would not appear …
So, as things stand after a very late night i’m really confused and concerned about how this could happen?
Being a newbie of the newest kind, all this is very new to me, so any advice and perhaps a written refresh of the steps in need to do (written in a simple for your dad way) would be much appreciated… I’m keen to know a) why the device was unusable, b) why it just dissapeared and c) why I can’t add it again?
