Vera UI7 expects to be able to get the time from the OpenWRT NTP servers on a reboot. Vera has no real-time clock hardware; it uses the OS software clock. If it can’t reach the NTP server on boot, it will not have a valid time. This issue has been discussed in the forum for years. There are a few things you can consider:
Run your own local NTP server on your LAN. Check the forum for information on how to do this.
Power Vera from a UPS to avoid reboots due to power loss.
Doing the above won’t provide a 100% fix, but may reduce the possibility of Vera losing the time to a very small percentage.
Systems using NTP will typically contact the time servers on a regular interval to stay in sync. That’s usually every 24 hours, but it may be more frequent in Vera.

Well worked a few hours on my unit, could not figure out what was wrong with 1.68 and got escalated to the dev team. Last night I had 4 Luup reloads for no particular reasons other than maybe CS working on the plugin as I gave them access but I was still on 1.28 in the morning. It looks like 1.69 is out now. I am a bit reluctant to upgrade.
