Time to throw this in the bin.
The Vera is a very inconsistent product, on the one hand simple to use if all you want to do is switch something on and off, but anything complicated such as switching something on and off but only if another thing is already on for example, needs programming in the worst, most poorly-documented, terrible development environment ever. Your programming window is a 10-line web page no matter how big the page. Error reports are limited to "error in LUA scenes and events", not even any information as to which device is causing the error, just "something is wrong somewhere", leaving you to try and search some very unhelpful logs with no documentation to go on. Reliability is very poor, with frequent reboots and power cycles needed several times a week. Firmware updates, when available, cause a redirect to the firmware update page every time you log in, but actually installing the update invariably breaks something requiring much debugging. The support team wasted my time by taking 2 months to go full circle, and I'm now waking up to the house being cold regularly as the vera has died overnight. Time to get rid of it, it's taking over my life rather than being in the background.

Pile of garbage
Had the box for 18 months now. It gave problems during initial set-up of my devices (Secure thermostats) and worryingly their appearance and functionality changed with some Vera updates. Recently it started getting blocked and only removing the power cable would reboot it. This morning it has blocked and even a factory reset will not bring it to life. I am a programmer by profession and electronics hobbyist, but this thing has cost me countless wasted hours and finally beaten me - and I'm not trying to do anything fancy! I am now searching for a replacement to this useless product.

Could do better
I bought this unit 14 months ago to manage a flat I let (3 hrs journey time away). It ran a couple of door locks, a couple of thermostats and a handful of other simple devices switches/sensors that I could either never get to work or they paired at some point but permanently appeared dormant.... Initially, I found it very frustrating that it took an age to pair a device or reboot. User interaction was via fleeting messages which you could miss while waiting several hours... However, once configured, it appeared reliable for my main devices. However, a few weeks ago the unit stopped accepting any writes to the memory - I could not update the firmware from UI7 Version 7.0.15 to version 7.0.17 and it did not save and changes to settings. I tried a total factory reset and it has not recovered despite 24hrs spent rebooting etc and a further 2.5hrs on the phone and screen sharing session with tech Vera support. There is no documentation for the unit other than a rudimentary description of the basic web interface which is self explanatory in any event. There is no explanation of how to ssh into the unit, how to install devices that are not pre-configured etc In fact you get the impression you have bought a capable product that is let down by a lack of adequate supporting documentation. The web interface is not user friendly, it takes several clicks even to log in. So If I have the controller on open on my desktop, the session closes after 30 mins and to open a lock remotely can take 30 secs to a minute as you login to the gateway server, it searches for your controller, you connect to and login to the controller, only then can you start to look for the device you want to control - not good when a guest is on the phone trying to get in. Most frustratingly, NONE of the advanced features in the web interface are documented in ANY way - this seems such a simple matter to resolve. There is no explanation of the technical specification for Z-Wave and how the unit implements it - you have to hunt that down yourself. The iOS app is not much better, you can change modes easily enough but anything else is tiresome - adding PINs to locks and PIN time restrictions is not possible with the iOS app you need to use the main web UI. This review is written after 14 months active use and several 24hrs sessions trying to fix the unit or install/pair devices. Vera do have regular firmware updates, I would like to see more focus on usability improvements based on properly researched use cases (i.e. logging in and switching something on/off!). Better documentation even some tooltips on the web interface for the advanced features and ssh access would go along way. If you reach this far, then you are probably persistent enough to be able to cope with using the unit.

New to Z wave but after a while and the use of all the training videos got the hang of it, seems to be a good system.

Smart solution with a lot of flexibility - Poor documentation
I looked at many solutions to Home Automation and after testing a couple selected the VeraEdge. Pros: Out of the box the solution works and is easy to set up, though would not take a UK PostCode, reported this and they have promised to fix. Adding Devices is easy and I had to remove a couple and found that process easy to. Creating scenes, once you have watched a few Videos and here's a BIG PLUS theres loads by Vera, well done guys. Lots of great plugin apps. With a little LUA coding your can do almost anything with this tiny box. Cons: The documentation is either none existent, especially around the Apps. You don't even get a link to the developers homepage. VERY POOR! I have: Electric heating being controlled all via scenes, Home-Away Vacation aware etc. Lighting in doors and out based on presence and light Alarm System which uses Keyfob entry and Vera Geofencing Why 4*: Great unit, very flexible but poor documentation.

Community not Company driven......
The edge works. Getting it to work, or moreover getting good it to do what you want it to do is not the simple task it should be. For that I suspect you need to go the Fibaro route. The interface is clear, but not that intuitive. You have to get straight into the lingo, and to do anything beyond relatively simple stuff, is anything conditional, you are straight into either Lua code or, thanks to the strong community, a well written and reliable plug in. The company should be slightly embarrassed that the success of the unit is down to its user group and certainly not by its own actions. Work arounds are needed too often, but they are easily found in the well supported forums, and, strangely the best interfaces are home built, and not MCV supplied. That said, the unit pairs easily, is small, doesn't run hot and, well, works. If you are prepared to go under the bonnet a bit (not essential, but maybe inevitable), then this is good. If not, head for Fibaro.

Vera Edge is great- shame about the apps
I have my Vera Edge working nicely, straight out of the box. Started to load up the devices I have and immediately ran into problems, no set up for Fibaro Universal Sensor or Qubino Dual Relay, those are the only devices I use, simple it should be input process output, but not for Vera. AND the apps, what a mess, the first one I tried the instructions are in French, which is great, if all the instructions were in French, but everything else is in English. AND it doesn't work like the instructions say anyway. What a great piece of negative sales technique, the engineers want yo keep Z-wave to themselves so make sure it is incomprehensible. NOT IMPRESSED. In the last week I have spoken to 3 people who would like to control their buildings, but not while the equipment is sold by engineers.

So far so good. Minor
So far so good. Minor compatibility problem between Vera Edge & RFSTRX device was quickly resolved by a firmware upgrade, courtesy of a fast response from Vesternet tech support team. Lightwave dimmer added in easily, and now awaiting delivery of a roller blind to test before considering next item.

A good controller at a good price
Due to UI7 issues the Edge has started off with a less than ideal reputation, however after my Vera 2 had something of a self destruction I needed a new controller and Edge was my choice because a) I wanted something that would support the apps I used on my previous unit b) the Vesternet teams tested confirmed the unit has matured. Installing from a back up of my old system was a nightmare and caused issues, so I wiped the unit and started with a ground up build. It has been worth the effort as after a few weeks running the unit seems very stable and is more responsive than my Vera 2 (which would vary in responsiveness at times). With the continued updates of UI7 this unit should continue to grow to be at least as reliable (if not more) than the units it replaces. 4 stars as there are a number of apps that still don't function with UI7 which limits some of the more advanced possibilities at this time.

Better than my old Vera Lite, although the UI7 software still has a long way to go in terms of reliability and the user experience. Way too many bugs in it, Vera!

After a lot of research I thought this would give me the greatest flexibility and customability for proper home automation not just enabling remote control of lots of different devices.

Can the gateway operate without internet connectivity?
Andy G. 11 May 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, Vera will work normally without Internet access however you will only be able to access it on your local network by going directly to the gateways ip address (I.e 192.168.1.2) Also without Internet acces you won't be able to download firmware updates and essential apps (PLEG etc).
Is the optional power supply a replacement cable with UK plug?
Gary K. 11 Feb 2016
BEST ANSWER: The VERA Edge includes a European power supply. However, we include a free of charge UK adapter, allowing you to use it with UK style wall plugs - you will see that as an option on the product page and is the default option. Some people want to have a UK power supply (with a UK plug), for that reason we offer the optional UK power supply.
