How It Works
With VeraEdge you can do anything today's most advanced smart homes can do. A Z-Wave gateway allows you to control your smart home devices from a mobile device or computer. It lets you schedule events based on motion or light triggers. You will also be able to save your favorite temperature or lighting settings and apply them with one click anytime.
The new model has some cool features like geo fencing which notifies the system when you're coming home. The controller will make sure you have just the right temperature in your bedroom or living room when you arrive. It will help you save energy by switching all lights and unnecessary equipment when you leave. There are thousands of ways to make your home or office more secure and efficient. Vera is designed to let you experiment with all of them until you find the smartest way to live.
Your VeraEdge system can do many different things, depending on the accessories you add to it:
- Build a security system by adding door locks, door/window sensors, motion sensors, wireless video cameras, and sirens.
- Create an energy saving system with thermostats, light dimmers, energy meter monitor, and smart switches for AC devices.
- Set up a home safety monitoring system with smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, and flood detectors.
- Make your life more convenient by connecting garage door openers, ceiling fan switches, and lawn sprinklers that operate automatically. Feel free to combine all these functions in one system!
VeraEdge controls all leading brands of Z-Wave sensors, locks, thermostats, cameras, switches and other devices so you don't have to worry about compatibility when selecting accessories. The manufacturer has significantly improved their Z-Wave Plus support since the first version of UI7 and they continue to release updates to keep up with the latest technology out there.
- Faster processor allows greater compatibility with devices
- More memory for better response times and flexibility
- WPS easy push button pairing for Wi-Fi devices
- Improved multi-camera management
- Intuitive user set-up and control
- Local Z-Wave control of devices so the scenes and schedule work locally even when your Internet goes down
Plug the unit in and connect it to the Internet with the Ethernet cable provided in the box. Go to VeraControl's website and follow the step-by-step instructions to set up and account and register your controller. Make sure you follow the directions carefully. If you encounter any issues during the process, feel free to contact us or Vera directly (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you come across a screen prompting you to manually enter the serial number and mac address for the unit, read this post for fast troubleshooting solutions.
Adding devices later is easy too with preconfigured settings for most Z-Wave products. If you can't pair a device, Vera will offer to unpair it first - complete this process to erase any configuration errors which might have occurred during pairing attempts.
