VeraAlerts provides notification of events that were originated from your Vera Home Automation system and delivered to your Android phone. These notifications are done using Google's C2DM (Cloud To Device Messaging) service. In addition to the text of the notification, it can also request 1 of 5 alert tones to be played on your phone when the notification is delivered. Or it can have the message spoken using the locally installed Android Text To Speech, TTS, engine on your phone. VeraAlerts also maintains a database of these notification events so that you can review their history. It provides various tools to display these events and also to manage the lifetime of the stored data. UI5 and UI6 Development is frozen.

Furthermore, the Android app itself was very poorly written. Since it was not properly written @ multi-threading, the app would stop responding on load, as it was trying to ... read more
