Top customer reviews

A few criticisms talk about no manuals, but between YouTube and the company website, you don’t need a manual to operate this. I miss reading a manual, I am one of the few who actually read them cover to cover, but I didn’t need it.
By using the free app for my smartphone, I have the same access to my controller that I have using my computer, except that my smartphone can tell my Vera Edge when I am home and when I am away. There is this thing called a Geofence that you can set to tell your controller to turn on lights, etc, when you are within a few meters (yards) of your home—and I can pick how close I want it to realize when I am home.
Using my phone’s GPS to change my mode (home or away)…..perfect. The times when I left home and forgot to close the garage door and worried about it all day are gone. I can use my cellphone and the controller to close my garage door from anywhere or I can set it up by having it automatically close the door when I am so many meters away.
I have had such a good experience with this controller that I couldn’t help but wonder at those who wrote all of those critical reviews and what their expectations were. This little box takes all of those Z-wave devices and controls them all and allows you to build scenarios for what to be on and what to be off and when it should do these things. It has read all of my devices from across my home, so I didn’t need a long Ethernet cable to pair devices. It was easy to use and the information on the website and YouTube videos were adequate to do most things that I needed to do. I can set up my scenarios for the lights go off and on when I am away so that it looks like I am home. I can set up scenarios that turn on lights when I arrive home so I don’t have to walk in through the dark. I can secure doors and windows, operate my garage door opener and set up cameras and motion detectors—all with what I know and without having to learn all that technical language. There are still a couple of complicated things that I don’t understand about yet, but I am not a programmer and I don’t want to have to be one in order to use it. I can use it without having to know what a LUUP is or why its important.
This is an excellent device and the company appears to really support it. I don’t have to be a techie to use it, but as I learn more, it has the capacity to do more. I only wished it would wash dishes and do the laundry…
Setup was frustratingly difficult. There is little feedback to know what's going on in the pairing process. Is it Vera's fault, the device manufacturer's fault? the standards' setting body's fault? I don't care, but it doesn't work well. It literally took days to set up a simple system to monitor my patio and control some lights.
The programming is clunky and there's yet another quasi programming language to be familiar with. It's not point and click ITTT type programming. And even after programming, the programs don't always fire. Again, what's at fault? I don't know but my advise to you is don't trust any mission critical activities to this technology. Mission critical like controlling something like a door lock, or garage door switch unless you have a really good relationship with your insurance agent.
The application interface is ALWAYS displaying erroneous data. The interface is confusing and annoying, is that too strong? How about the declaration: "It is the single worst application design I've encountered."
Despite all my disappointment, I continue to use it. It does work the majority of the time but it fails to work often enough that I continue to dream about the day this technology just works.
Here is what I have found so far. If you have question comment and I will respond.
Pro: Fast (response time of lights, locks, door sensors, motion sensors)
Z-wave plus - have some new Aeon Labs ZWave plus items and they work fantastically.
3 Weeks and only have to unplug once. Caused by error in system which firmware will fix
UI7 is getting better and is much faster to edit things (don't have to reload luup just to change a name)
Every plugin I have trieds works, and works well
40 zwave devices, 20 DSC devices, 10 Philips hue lights, and about 30 plugin devices (Harmony, ping sensor, PLEG, Mutiswitch, Multistring) with 70 mBytes of Ram left.
Firmware Updates monthly- it good and only getting better.
Cons: Thermostat interface is a step down from UI5 - I have a honeywell auto change over TStat and you can't control Heat and Cool Setpoints as easily like you could in UI5.
UPnP with VeraLite - doesn't work yet, they are actively fixing it. I don't know about other Veras but my Veralite UI7 cannot be added...yet.
I honestly did not like UI7 until I took the plunge and played with it. I admit has some annoying things, but so did UI5. Now that I have played with it for about a month it works just fine. I don't hate it and it isn't the greatest thing ever. However in order to take advantage of the new gadgets coming out, you will have to upgrade to UI7. I believe with the state of UI7 it is definitely stable enough for operations.
Well now I had to drop it to 2 stars. July firmware had serious issues and caused motion sensors to stop working properly. I didn't drop any stars because I hoped it was a fluke and would be fixed after the next firmware update. This was not the case, now ZCOMBO fire/CO detectors don't work as well as many other devices after the September update. Updates should fix problems, not create more. I am very disappointed with Vera and will be looking to replace it.
