I followed the instructions for a serial gateway but unfortunately it just doesn't work. It looks like the Vera cannot talk to it.
Here's what I'm working with: I have a couple of Moteino R5 USB devices that I bought a while back. They have the built-in RFM69 tranceiver.
My plan is to hook one up to the Vera to use as the gateway, and then the other will be my sensor node. I'm going to hook a DHT11 to it so it can measure temperature and humidity.
I opened the GatewaySerial sketch from the MySensors-master folder (which for some reason is completely different than the SerialGateway sketch on this page: https://www.mysensors.org/buil/serial_gateway) and edited the file. I had to comment out the NRF24 and uncomment the RFM69 entry. I uploaded the sketch to the Moteino.
I checked the Moteino via serial monitor and see it doing its thing:
0;255;3;0;9;Starting gateway (RRNGA-, 2.0.0)
0;255;3;0;14;Gateway startup complete.
0;255;3;0;9;No registration required
0;255;3;0;9;Init complete, id=0, parent=0, distance=0, registration=1
I then log onto the Vera and attempt to create the gateway device. I uploaded the LUUP files and basically followed the instructions on this page: https://www.mysensors.org/controller/vera
However after I create the Arduino device, it says "Lua Startup Failure". And that's it, I'm dead in the water there. I did try it again with the ESP8266 as the device and I get no errors, it just doesn't seem to work. But I figured I'd start from the basics and concentrate on getting the serial version to work first. I see posts from a couple of years ago stating that you have to use the nano for a gateway. Is that still a problem? Because mine is an Uno clone, not a nano.
