On VeraSecure unit #2. Started experiencing issues so I took a different route. I installed Home Assistant on a mini-PC that was just collecting dust. Right out of the box, something I had a LOT of problems doing was simple in Home Assistant --> running a scene where EITHER of 2 motion sensors is tripped AND the light level is below XYZ THEN turn on the light for 10 minutes. It worked in PLEG in Vera but took forever to do. In Home Assistant, being a new user, it took a couple of hours. (I had to learn the proper way to format YAML.)
Here are the things that I’ve configured to work in less than a week of tinkering:
[ul][li]automated complex scenes[/li]
[li]Google Home integration (IT’S FAST!)[/li]
[li]rtsp Cameras work! [/li][/ul]
Other wins: Since I removed all third party apps from the VeraSecure - it seems more responsive. (Or maybe it is Home Assistant that is more responsive??) The Home Assistant app LOADS IN SECONDS on our cell phones and tablets. (I repeat - LOADS IN SECONDS) And I’m sure this will all add to the stability of the VeraSecure since all it has to do is communicate with the Z-Wave devices and Home Assistant will handle the rest.
1 Week In with Home Assistant and now wish I had tried this 6 or 7 years ago!
