Thanks Ashok for the update!!!  Looking forward to the next release!

@medatom - I have a Schlage lock installed and it works fine.  Only issue is when its unlocked it says its locked and vice versa.  Also, I had to revert back to R72 for it to be functional though.

Good news Ashok!

I would like to shake your hand but I am near Chicago today.  ;)

(I'm assuming pete isn't 'official' staff)

I am not.  I am one of you yuts (but old these days)

Old really and automation yutful..

I am not totally grey here yet. My father though started to get grey at 70.  My brother in law got grey at 30.  My first car was a 1964 Pontiac Gran Pix (with bucket seats). 

Automated home with X10 in the 1970s (late 1970's).   I had a Commodore Pet / C64 BBS in Chicago in the early 1980's using Ventel modems and automated with the C64.

Always tinkered.  Went from X10 to Insteon to UPB (well and Zigbee and Zeewave).   

None the less and related to OP Ashok has brought us good news. 

I could feel the tension over here near Chicago.

I respect software innovation is hard, and I surely don't have the skills myself to do what they do. I'm glad smart people are advancing technology for enthusiasts like me. So I've cut a lot of slack over may months, but am impatient too.  The H.A. device support and rules interface just isn't there yet. So it's great to hear a new release is coming.

I keep in mind that what does work on A+ is a lot of fun, and I like knowing my home status (lights, thermostat) are off when I'm away and forgot to check them. It's also awesome to arrive at my home airport in the summer, and turn on the A/C at home so the house is cool when I get there. Or to have the peace of mind knowing the coffee pot automatically turns off when I open the front door to leave. This was the stuff of sci-fi15 years ago!

For my own friends seeking only a router, I'd gladly recommend A+. My own router experience has been stellar.  But I tell my friends interested in H.A. not to buy the A+ (yet) since I know they will be really frustrated with the current experience. When A+ is really ready for prime time, I'm glad to advocate for it.

I have had A+ since it was sent to me through Kickstarter and Im all about being a beta tester or trying new and onnovative items.  I do it all the time.  BUt I have to admit that getting to some solid firmware is taking a longer time than normal.

Thanks for the update!

I would be willing to test the new release if you need more people. Just message me.

EDIT: I just saw your pinned post at the top of the forum and sent you an email.

I'll test if you need one more, used to dealing with NDA's so that's not a problem.

Someone please check the Cree Connected Smart Bulb LEDs for compatibility with the latest beta when it becomes available.  I'd do it myself but don't have time.  I have several of the Cree Connected Smart LEDs and am still stuck on release R72 to keep them somewhat supported -- have had problems with all later firmware releases I've tried.  Haven't personally tried R80 firmware with them yet -- I remember reading someone else was still having problems with R80 and the Cree Connected LEDs, so didn't bother.

Would really like to see the latest general firmware release have them working so I can upgrade my firmware without losing functionality.

Securifi has a Cree Connected Smart LED bulb on hand for testing, so if anyone finds compatibility bugs, they should be able to test to replicate the problem and fix it hopefully.

Thanks!

Johnny

No guys, we have not given up. Many of our developers are spending 50-60hr weeks working on our next release. This will be a big one. It will have the following features
-Scenes
-Nest Integration
-Support for more sensors
-Improvements to Rules Engine
-Two big surprises

Just when I was about to throw in the towel, @Ashok breaks some news! Sweet!
