I have had some trouble with delays using Vera Alerts with the Vera Alert Mobile profile. I have Vera Alerts triggered by a virtual switch that sense if the iPhoneLocator app is home or away. Sometimes the Vera Alerts notification on my Android tablet is several minutes delayed, compared to the state of the switch.
I was thinking about using the Vera Alert LAN profile instead. The tablet is wall mounted and have a static IP in our network. However, I do not understand what do put in the settings?
Host: Is this the static IP?
Port: Pre filled with 2048. Is this something I should change?
When I try to send a message using a Vera Alerts LAN profile with the tablets IP nd port 2048 it do not work. What am I missing?
HOST is the static IP of the Vera Alerts Mobil device.
Port is a communications port # that must match on both the Vera Side and the Mobile side for them to connect.
The default should work … but in case of a collision with some other software on your mobil devices … you can pick another number.
Vera LAN Mode currently only works in WIFI mode.
If Wifi mode is not ON it assumes its in cellular mode and can’t establish a server socket.
Most cellular networks will not allow a mobile device to be a “server”.
They can try … the service providers will not forward connection requests.
