MIOS down



  • Oh dear oh dear oh dear.

    Cloud dead. No one noticed 😄

    C



  • They're doing maintenance, as they wrote on their forum.

    Where?

    C



  • There used to be a service uptime status page but that seems silently vanished.



  • Oh no it's still there. Claiming everything is hunky dory.

    Just got an email saying it was due to maintenance:

    Early this morning we pushed an update to our cloud server, but unfortunately, this update took longer than expected to deploy and has resulted in you being unable to access your systems or control your homes.

    Which no one knew about (it seems apart from @therealdb ) including the guy that runs support. 😉

  • Dear Vera Customers,

    Early this morning we pushed an update to our cloud server, but unfortunately, this update took longer than expected to deploy and has resulted in you being unable to access your systems or control your homes.

    We understand the responsibility that comes with putting our systems in your homes and apologize for the inconvenience this has caused many of you. The system should be up and running shortly, though due to the number of users trying to reconnect, access may be delayed a bit further.

    Please note: during the update, the system was returning an incorrect username or password error, but you do not need to update either of these. Once the system is back online your usual username and password will work as normal.

    Again, we apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate you being a loyal Vera customer.

    Regards,

    Mark Samuel
    CEO, Ezlo Innovation



  • Yep. Same email here.

    Personally not buying for a second.

  • Cloudless FTW! People need to go back to what was the real purpose and benefit from the cloud and stop moving applications there because they can. I see this in the corporate world as well... The cloud's benefit is sharing and offloading things you can't do at home due to lack of processing power. This in no way applies to home automation which needs and certainly wants no sharing and even less requires the processing power to justify the power needed, the reliability/performance loss and the security liability to send your data into the wild.

    On related note, their cloud is of the same quality as their products!! I just got an ezlo Atom 2 beta in the mail a couple of days ago in spite of having sent them an email not to send this to me as it would just add to my pile of garbage. Well it is here and completely scratched up looking like it got pulled from the ocean. It went straight to the trash can. The atom concept itself is self defeating and I fail to understand any sort of application for it besides adding RF interference and latency to any home setup. It is a product designed from gross ignorance about RF, zwave and home automation...

    No argument from me.

    Terrible operational awareness as well. Private conversations blame C19 because the teams are working from home.

    I guess it sounds like I'm kicking them for the hell of it, but blimey, it's what, 2 years since the take over? This is basic basic stuff.

    What I see being reported as issues with Ezlo testing seems they have a very very long way to go before that's ready for prime time as well.

    When will we get voice control for OpenLuup? 😉

    C



  • Alright having to run to a meeting but... Right now my openLuup voice control is through alexa which is cloud dependent for the voice processing but my failover is... siri on my phone and laptop which is local...

    Without UI7? Your ideas (continue) to interest me....

    C



  • yeah you know I dumped UI7 for a few months now. I dumped the mios cloud for well over a year. I have been using local bridges to Homekit and Alexa for about 5 years!



  • Well, when you get a chance 😉

    All running on the same machine as z-way and openLuup. (a VM running on a single thread of my quad core 8 thread NAS)
    Note that these provide much better control over what gets discovered and how they behave vs the cloud hosted solution. I can do a lot of things the cloud solution could not... in terms of action and device controlled.



  • Well I always got as far as Hue and stopped! Idiot.

    Right I need to start some kind of migration.

    Reckon it'll all work on a Pi4? Or an oldish NUC?

    C



  • Yes it would work on a rPi3 even or in my case I ran it for a long time on a celeron. It does't really exercise anything on the CPU:
    z-way server occupies ~5%, openLuup (which is massive... over 300 devices and 200 scenes now) only takes 3% ALTUI spikes another 3% at the most with my latest discovery of rapidjson, and these bridges all take less than 0.5% together. RAM required: 500MB. Honestly I could almost run it on the vera plus if I could compile all these for ramips. This supports my point about not needing a very powerful CPU for processing but we need to pay attention to the I/O bandwidth and network capacity/cpu storage reliability. Complete opposite of the ezlo plus which upgrades what doesn't matter and downgrades what is important vs the vera.
    If you do want to expand later into the video realm though at this point I would recommend the nVidia Jetson Nano...
    which is equivalent to rPi4 with a GPU.



  • Hmmmm
    So I think I'll start a thread of my migration to hopefully document / encourage! Thanks!
