Well Vera has come out with a new controller and added a few new bells and whistles to it.
The new Vera Plus is still using their flagship user interface UI7, but the biggest news here is the addition of a ZigBee and Bluetooth antenna.
Now in addition to controlling all of your favorite Z-Wave products the new Plus the ability to control a whole new assortment of ZigBee and Bluetooth products.
Vera has also increased the processor to 880MHz from 600 with the Edge and added additional memory to 256MB of DDR3 from 128DDR2 with the Edge.
This should make the UI seem snappier and cut down on control lag.
And all of this from only a slightly bigger physical appearance.
The Plus is now shipping and has a the same retail price of of the previous top of the line home controller at 149.95$ The older Edge has now dropped down to 99.95$
So if you are just starting with home automation, the new Plus is a no brainer, but if you are happy with your current controller and have no need to add any Zigbee or Bluetooth products than there is no need to upgrade.

Learn how to easily install some components in your garage to control, automate and monitor your garage door with your smart phone or tablet from anywhere in the world.
You can even program some interesting logic into your home controller that will open it automatically when you or your car get close to your home or in case of emergency.
There are several ways to control your garage door with a Z-Wave home controller. We have found that this method using these products seems to be the safest, easiest and cheapest way to go.
Your kit will come with the following parts.
WARNING: Do not install automation equipment on any motorized door or gate unless you have the latest safety equipment supplied by it's manufacture installed on it, including but not limited to, occupancy sensors, status sensors, reverse sensors and reverse mechanisms.
Using automation or control equipment on a motorized door or gate can be dangerous. Be aware, you are giving control of your electric door motor and door to an electrical device which can trigger your door or gate at any time.
007 Systems takes no responsibility for any damage or injury resulting in the use of these parts.
We also have a written document you can print out for installation of the RM10 here.
Once you have the appliance module, RM10 and the door sensor installed, you can now control your door with the controller.
Please be aware that appliance modules are either on or off. Each trigger of the door opener places the Z-Wave module and the RM10 in the on position. It will stay in that position until you turn it off until you install automation to do that for you. If you leave the Z-Wave module and the RM10 in the on position, it may cause problems with your wall button.
To solve this problem, please use automation to automatically turn off the appliance module after it is triggered by you. If you have a Vera controller and have both the appliance module, RM10 and the door sensor correctly installed and connected to the Vera controller, we recommend downloading and installing the "Garage Door" plug in from the Vera plug in store. It will take care of turning the Z-Wave module and the RM10 off for you after each trigger and really makes controlling your garage door much easier.
