Today we are making publicly available a Release Candidate of the Vera UI7 firmware. This new software contains a variety of feature enhancements, device compatibility updates, and overall performance improvements. The ‘release candidate’ label indicates that this update is well tested but would benefit from additional community testing before it is distributed automatically to all of our customers.
To update to the Release Candidate firmware (1.7.318), navigate to SETUP > Firmware on your UI6 dashboard and enter the following URL (http://download.mios.com/rt3662_betafirmware/rt3662_Luup_ui7-1.7.318-en-mios.squashfs) into the “Advanced: URL for Vera Custom firmware” field and click download.
The update process will take anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the speed of your internet connection.
Release notes can be found on our support site.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are running an older firmware version (UI5) you will need to create a NEW user account at https://home.getvera.com and reassign your controller to your new account, as this software uses our updated MMS backend and will not recognize your existing https://cp.mios.com user credentials.
Also, we cannot guarantee the compatibility of all the legacy UI5 apps and plugins written by our 3rd party developer community. Should you encounter an issue with one of these apps or plugins please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll work to escalate and resolve directly with the developer.
