VeraLite is created for users that already have a WiFi router and want to add home control at the most affordable price. VeraLite runs the same home control engine with all the capabilities of Vera3, and it is perfect for users with small to medium sized networks. VeraLite's sleek new design and built-in battery pack makes set-up convenient. Just like Vera3, VeraLite comes with the newest user interface, UI5.
You have unlimited options for scenes, rooms, timers, events and notifications.
Do your research
Pros: Works as advertised.
Cons: Not necessarily cons, just caveats:
Other Thoughts: Keep in mind that, as with all DIY projects, one must be willing to delve into new and unknown territory. Had AFITgrad86 done their research, they would have known that Schlage has a proprietary system and does not play nice with the Z-Wave standard because they want people to pay the ridiculous fee of $9.99 a month to achieve the same result you get with Vera for free.

Pros: Small relatively inexpensive home automation controller. Knowledgeable and helpful tech support staff.
Cons: Limited support for devices. Will not support the Schlage IP cameras nor the American Standard/Trane Nexia touchscreen thermostat/HVAC controller. System software is also quite fragile and the system can be easily lapse into a 'confused' state. Little effective documentation available with the unit or online. Tech support did not answer email to resolve ticket but once I called them they were very professional and helpful.
Other Thoughts: I am very disappointed with this device. I had hoped for a device that would integrate my different devices including a top-of-the-line Trane/American Standard HVAC system, a recently upgraded security system and 5 IP cameras. Alas, the cameras are only supported via a generic driver that is limited to snapshot viewing, the thermostat was totally ignored and two of the five cameras won't work at all.
