Z-wave controller with open environment. Large usercommunity which develops many apps. Not the fastest interface. Debugfunction is limited. Via RFXcomm you can control 433Mhz devices, via smartmeter cable you can readout the smartmeter. Good value for money controller.
The Vera Edge is a populair smarthomecontroller for more experienced smarthome user and IT-enthousiast. Due to its open structure it is possible to program complex scenes and connect tons of other smarthome devices like the Nest Thermostat. This unit offers complete if-then-else support by it integrated LUUP programming environment. The debug function is not so advanced as the more expensive Home center 2. The interface is not as fast and more simple. This device has build-in Wifi, so you dont need a ethernetcable present. Although we advise to connect it to your LAN.
Now we like to show you some videos about the possibilities.
