Ok so unless anyone has any better idea’s which i would be interested in hearing, i have just bought a standalone wifi plug that can switched on or off from anyway with a free app, so if i plug my vera in to it i can reboot at anytime even if vera is screwed

I have a similar setup. I built it while experiencing similar issues.
I have a job running on a Linux box pinging the http services and if 3 consecutive errors are detected, the hub is rebooted.

The irony is that I literally used it 3 times in 3 years after I built it…

Ha yes typical, not sure that would help me here though, I rebooted remotely and it went offline when I vnc’d into my server I still couldn’t get to my vera so had to wait till I was physically home to power cycle my vera plus

It happened to me few times. I have simple solution independent power socket ON/OFF over Wi-Fi so when this happen I can rebooted via power OFF/ON.


Ok so what about a USB step up cable to 12v, plug it in my server, then if vera freaks out just reboot server…

Bought this testing now

Ordered this will see which one seems the most reliable

both working ok, I think I’ll stick with the wifi plug though, the USB is working fine but difficult to plug in because its so wide, also I think the wifi plug will be more reliable
