    About Z-Wave:
    Z-Wave is a wireless technology which uses Radio Frequency signals to communicate between transmitters and receivers. Each device in Z-Wave networks act as repeaters ensuring each signal reaches the intended location. This reliable, wireless ecosystem creates an integrated network unifying all of your home's electronics. Perfect for new construction or retrofit applications, Z-Wave is a wonderful, interoperable automation solution for both homes and businesses which can create wonderful savings through less energy consumption. Z-Wave allows users to control their entire home locally and remotely from a PC, Smartphone or web-enabled mobile device. Z-Wave is an open protocol technology.

    Features and Benefits
  • No monthly fee for remote access to your Z-Wave network from any web enabled device (smart-phones, Notebook computers).

  • Convenient graphical user interface (GUI) provides a setup process for the Vera3 that is easy to complete with Vera Control's step-by-step instructions.

  • Vera 3 is guaranteed to work with ALL Z-Wave devices: Including Deadbolt locks, scene controllers, all types of sensors, lighting and appliance controls, thermostats, energy metering devices, IP cameras, 3rd party alarm panels, IR devices, Control4 and more.

  • Expandable applications: Vera Control's app store offers 3rd party apps that extend your experience through features such as weather forecasting, media control, alarm panel integration, remote live video streaming, and more!

  • Advanced Energy Monitoring capabilities allow you to take control of your energy bill and start saving money.

  • Advanced Set-up Tab: This feature helps you to have trouble free use of advanced features such as infrared (IR) universal remote control, integration with monitored alarm systems, ability to bridge multiple Z-Wave networks with INSTEON, X10, and other home automation protocols.

  • Video Monitoring: Vera 3 allows you to stream live video from network or IP cameras even through your smart-phone. Vera Control allows you to store your video footage on their secure servers which you can then access from anywhere you have internet access.

  • Bridge Multiple Vera Devices Over IP: Enhance the signal range of your Z-Wave network by using more than one Vera device. Two or more Vera controllers can be bridged over IP allowing them to operate as one controller.

  • Open API's: The Vera home control engine, created by MiOS, was developed with an open architecture so that you or your installer can create custom apps to offer to all Vera users.

  • No Broadband Connection Needed for Local Control: Vera can configure and set-up your network allowing control of all your devices without the need of an internet connection.

    Important Note: To control INSTEON devices you need a Power Link MODEM (not a controller). For example the 2414U won't work because it's an INSTEON controller (not a modem) and uses a different protocol.

    Compatible INSTEON Interfaces: PowerLinc Modem - INSTEON USB Interface (Dual-Band), PowerLinc Modem - INSTEON Serial Interface (Dual-Band), and INSTEON PowerLinc Modem, USB.

    Absolute crap. No support and the documentation is very lacking. An attempt to configure the network port caused the box to stop communicating to the internet. Selecting the reset to factory option bricked the device and there is no way to reset the box once that happens. Calling the support line gets you to voicemail and posting on the forum does not get you any response.
    Ronald -- Detroit Michigan   12/17/2013
    This device is really easy to set up Z-Wave components. It has a lot of flexibility which might yield some confusion. So, take your time and learn the system. The device is compatible with INSTEON components too. Very flexible house scenes. The unit is stable; meaning that you do not need to power cycle it now and then.
    GEORGE -- schertz, TX   11/10/2013
    The controller works better than would have believed. It was easy to set up.
    Dave -- California   3/13/2013
    Seems like a product with a lot of potential. Unfortunately Vera Support from Mi Casa Verde is a complete joke. Even as a dealer you'd be lucky to get a call back within two weeks and that's just to find out you're on your own for Insteon support. I usually don't write such harsh reviews but hoping Mi Casa Verde trains up at least one person in their org to support it. On the plus side, after a month of trying to get support, I was issued a no questions asked RMA and got a full refund. As a dealer I cannot sell a product the manufacturer won't back.
    GettingItDone -- springfield, IL   1/25/2013
    I have been struggling off and on for some time trying to get Z-Wave in place at my home. This product weas recommended by my son and I share his satisfaction with it. I think it is a fairly capable mid range home controller and I look forward to tinkering more with it!
    JOSEPH -- waldorf, MD   3/27/2012
    Got it for Insteon control and a bit disappointed. Does not natively support keypads or dimmers, but searching through forum found a way to get it done. Would not recommend for a beginner.
