i just regrettably updated to u14 through the URL and instructions provided on the other forum-
it looks like i was too soon, or the upgrade process just sucks- which considering my experience with micasaverde, wouldn’t surprise me.
it appears that the firmware update was successful. i had the option to save a backup, unit came back online with normal status lights. i upgraded from U13, which was working OK.
following the new u14 instructions and using mios.com, i’m not able to add my unit to my account, it sees the unit’s serial number, and apparently an IP address of .29, but it’s not able to connect to the unit and add it to my account.
i’m also not able to hit the unit itself via the IP…
so i’m stuck with the following, along with a non-functional home-
[size=9pt]I am trying to connect to your unit using local network connection.
One moment while I try contact it on your local home network.
If you still see this message after 15 seconds, please reset your unit, wait one minute then click here[/size]
i’m extremely bummed out that i jumped the gun, and also kind of pissed that someone from Vera hasn’t posted anything about U14 advising people to upgrade or just wait for now. the posts i read in the other forum made it seem like U14 was out and that people had successfully upgraded- apparently this is not the case- and so i wish Vera would warn people not to make the same mistake i did. obviously my fault, but i would have hoped that a firmware upgrade wouldn’t brick my unit.
it’s killing me that i can’t get to the unit via it’s IP and at least set it up manually.
can anyone from Vera chime in here with some help or advice? or maybe any forum vet’s who have set up U14 or run the beta’s?
can anyone refresh my memory on how to accomplish a hard reset to factory just using the buttons on the back of a newer unit? of course the now very scant documentation that’s now wrongly published doesn’t mention this.
any help appreciated…
