If you, like me, have often thought about incinerating your Vera hub, driving with your car over it, because it’s slow, actions don’t happen as fast as you would like, creating a scene is extremely limited and poor, you already had the option of using the Reactor, and now you have the excellent MSR.
The Reactor is very good, and helped me for years, but due to limited processing of the hub Vera began to be slow, the reactions began to be not so immediate. And the Vera also does not signal the Reactor correctly and quickly because of its natural slowness due to too many processes.
Three weeks ago I finally got an abandoned computer, with Windows, and installed MSR, super simple and fast process, the detailed documentation helps the step by step, and even a layman like me could do it.
With MSR I started to create all the actions again, and delete them from the Reactor in the Vera hub.
Well a new universe of possibilities opened up, actions react very fast, more intelligence in the rules, and of course, when removing everything from Vera (which soon will be a Z-Wave radio), the hub itself became faster. Another example of optimization, in Vera it was necessary to have an APP to use Telegram, in MSR it is already natural in the application, so I could remove the Vera APP, one less element to consume processing and memory of the hub.
Ok, you can say that now you need a computer to have the MSR. I am sure you have already thought many times about buying another hub by giving up the Vera, buy at this price several options that Amazon offers to have a terminal with MSR.
Just like we have this Vera community that helps a lot, the MSR is in the SmartHome community, and people are helping a lot the users, and in the build the new MSR, that is still beta, but fully operational.
Here are my thanks to @rigpapa for the great work once again, and to all who have helped.
Finally, I can not fail to comment that Vera has more attention to these initiatives, listen more to these developers like @rigpapa, about the errors/problems. The MSR now does not depend only on Vera hub, it is multi-platform, this for me would light a super red light on the existence of the company.
