The Aeon labs minimote is a remote controller focused on enduser’s ease of use. Although simplicity and user experience is the primary focus, the full range of Z-Wave remote controller capabilities are left intact for the advanced user. Network installation is vastly improved via the interface. The minimal is upgradeable by the end-user such that the latest Z-Wave protocols are always available. An internal lithium battery allows for months of usage and is recharged via USB. A sliding cover reveals Z-Wave network installation buttons used occasionally. 4 scene buttons are exposed for easy access to user. The Aeon labs minimote is also capable of being gateway configurable such that the functions of the buttons can be swapped and modified on the fly to better suit complimenting static gateway solutions.

As for the remote itself, you can see it has four buttons. There are eight total possible "actions" you can configure since each button will respond to either a press or a long press as different things. There are four more buttons under the cover on the bottom of the remote, but these are Z-Wave-related buttons (like "Learn" and "Include"), which you really only need when setting it up. For SmartThings, you'll need to press the "Learn" button, then tell the SmartThings hub to add a new Z-Wave device (or this device in particular, which you can also choose)--and that's about all you'll need. To configure the buttons, the SmartThings app currently allows you to add a "Button" and has configuration choices for what to do with each of the four buttons for a press or long press. It's kind of awkward right now and a bit limited (e.g., I can choose a light or switch for one of the buttons; it didn't tell me that it would *toggle* that light or switch, and if you're turning a light on, it doesn't let you specify the brightness), but I think this will improve over time, and you can probably write a SmartApp to customize it more in the meantime.
UPDATE: I've had this remote over three years now and it's still working well. I've also used the first generation of this remote, which looks similar but has numbers (1-4) instead of squares on the button and which works with SmartThings if you update the firmware on it (or buy one that already is updated), though they apparently went out of production several years ago and may have old batteries (not sure if they're replaceable, but I've rarely had problems aside from it needing charging more often--yet--and it's cheaper).
In order to pair the Minimote I did this:
1) First download the latest firmware for the Minimote. Do a Google search for "aeon minimote firmware". Download the proper firmware for your region then update the firmware by plugging the Minimote into the computer and run the software you just downloaded. It was a fast process and I have read a few people claim you need to update the firmware to properly work with UI6, but I don't know for sure.
2) Reset the Minimote by holding down the "Learn" and "Associate" buttons until the lights stop blinking.
3) Open your browser and navigate to your Vera UI. Once in, go to 'Devices', then 'Add a Devices', then 'Advanced Z-Wave Devices'. From there you will see it say "Recommended: Add the device to remote Vera's network, letting Vera be the primary controller". Click the 'Add One' button below that. After this, the light on your Vera will start blinking.
4) Hold your Minimote over the Vera and push the 'Learn' button. If paired properly, the light on the Minimote and Vera will blink rapidly.
5) After the light stops blinking you should see the new device listed as "_MiniMote" in 'Devices' then 'Other'. You may have to wait a minute or so for the Vera to reload / refresh.
6) If it's there, you paired it properly and can click the wrench icon to set up which scenes it controls.
7) Click the 'Scenes' tab and you are ready to assign scenes to your new Minimote.
8) Close the MiniMote window and click save. Wait for the Vera to reload and you're all set!
A note to remember: In the 'Scenes' tab, the first section says "Activate the following scenes when the buttons are turned on:". This is the scene that will be activated by pushing (not holding) the button down. The section below that says "Activate the following scenes when the buttons are turned off:". This is the scene that will be activated by pushing and holding the button down.
I will update my review as time goes on and after the Minimote requires it's first re-charge. The Minimote is charged via mini usb (included), not micro usb and has a built in rechargeable battery which is also a plus.
