Vera Alerts provides notification of events that were originated from your Vera Home Automation system and delivered to your Android phone. These notification can also specify 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.

Vera Alerts 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.

In addition to the text message and the alert tone, a notification event can include additional data with the message such as displayed background and foreground colors of the displayed messages, and other meta tags that can be used to convey information such as the user that initiated the event.

    The android alerts are so much better than getting tons of emails.

    I use this program to have a log of entry and exit access to my home. Very fast and reliable. Nexus 5 KitKat 4.4.1

    It was pretty easy to install with minimum setup. Works great and its way better than getting SMS or email notifications. Using this with my Veralite.

    Was having such a hard time getting any plugins to work. Did a factory reset on my VeraLite and now everything works great, including this awesome app.

    Great App which basically allows to do everything I expect from a Home Automation Notification System. Overhelming advantages compared to the vera build in notifications.
