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.

    I've only just got the vera and this app but so far it's looking good if a little confusing, but maybe I ought to read the documentation! It's still doing what I want though but it looks like it can do a lot more.

    This allows our vera system to act like an alarm system and we love it. I consider this an essential app for vera owners who want notifications.

    Works fine, but after months of use I finally found it was responsible for 50% of my battery usage, and that's without even using the app. And occasionally it gets into a mode where it draws much more, depleting my battery in just a few hours. Unacceptable.

    After entering all the settings got a blank screen and heading says not registered. Took me a while to find the register option, now out works great!
