5 out of 5 eggsDo your research

Pros: Works as advertised.
No issues with lag or connectiivity.
No system crashes or need to reboot.
Price-point; try achieving the result with Crestron, AMX, etc. for 1/20th the $$

Cons: Not necessarily cons, just caveats:
Be willing to learn, or at the very least google and cannibalize, some LUA code and research plugins.

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.

Vera works great with my Kwikset locks, which report changes instantly by the way.

I even have my theater door lock set to power on the equipment and light and begin the proper scene for movie viewing based on a specific PIN code. Any other code simply powers on the lights in the room; no need to look for the switch.

It turns on the front yard lights at sunset and powers them down at sunrise. It turns on the foyer and kitchen lights when my wife enters her code to unlock the front door and sends me a message to let me know she is home safe.

Don't know what else to say, only posted this review because AFITgrad86 seems misguided and out of his/her element.

2 out of 5 eggsMicasaverde VeraLite

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.

In all fairness to Micasaverde there are a wide variety of devices out there and I understand that it is tough to tie together everyone's equipment. However statements such as "Universal Compatibility. Customize your Vera network to fit your needs by hand picking devices regardless of the manufacturer, including over 650 certified Z-Wave devices." and "Video Monitoring - Stream live video from plug and play IP cameras even on your smartphone" are not completely truthful.

So I guess it's RMA time and I will be returning this device shortly. Looks as if my only fallback position is to use the NEXIA service. Too bad... I really had my hopes up.
