Firmware Flash Vera 1
If Vera's power light blinks consistently (not a double pulsing blink) within a few seconds of powering on, then Vera's firmware has become corrupted. This can happen if Vera was unplugged while in the middle of performing a firmware update ("flash"). When it does, you will probably need to use a firmware restoration utility, which runs on Windows. Here is how to restore Vera's firmware once it has become corrupted:
2. Download the firmware restoration utility and unzip it into a folder on your PC. The utility is here: http://download.controlmyhouse.net/flash_firmware.zip
3. Connect your PC's network connection the LAN 1 port of Vera. (It must be LAN 1, not any of the other LAN ports.)
5*. Run the program 'rescue.exe' (downloaded in Step 2). Click 'browse' and find the firmware file (downloaded in Step 1).
NOTE:You may need to disable your anti-virus software to run 'rescue.exe'. The anti-virus might think this is malicious code.
7. Click 'upload' in the firmware utility. It takes up to 5 minutes to flash the firmware.
(*) The rescue utility is known to work only on Windows XP and with only ONE network card (disable wireless and other network cards if your computer has any)
