A working Vera Remote control app!!

Nothing existing worked, so I wrote one.
The latest Vera authentication is quite complex. This is why 3rd party apps are few and far between. After some hours of tinkering I got it to work!!!

Vera Wiz - Layout


The App will only show devices that have been "selected" in the configuration. This way the App remains uncluttered. Devices are in the bottom part of the list after Scenes.


As with Devices, only Scenes that have been "selected" in the configuration are shown. Scenes are in the top section of the Menu


The App can use the Voice dictation functionality of the Pebble (Time & Round only). This will then recognise the following commands "ON,OFF,DIM", together with the NAME of your device. You can use normal spoken language like "Switch off Kitchen Lights", or "Kitchen lights off". As long as the command and device name are in the sentence.

Long Press Exit

Pressing the back button triggers the voice recognition. Long press (hold) the Back button to exit the app.


Up & Down buttons are used to scroll through the list.
Pressing the Select button will Toggle a device, or run a scene.
Long pressing (holding) the Select button will start the DIM cycle... The level will be set when you release the button.


Voice is not available on Original Pebble & Pebble Steel.
Some functions are only available in Registered(Paid) mode.
