VeraAlerts provides notification of events that were originated from your Vera Home Automation system and delivered to your Android phone. 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.

Google's push notification system is really nice, so using that as the back-end for Vera notification is really the best experience.

Notifications are FAST -- faster than SMS, and very reliable. The app is simple and effective.

I too wish there was a way to NOT notify on Startup ("Vera Startup"), yet keep the system notifications for other things, but this is a minor wish. The app hasn't failed once, and once I figured out how to substitute it for the MIOS notifications, there's no way I'd go back.
