Z-Wave Vera Home Automation

When it comes to Vera home automation, Vera is all about freedom of choice. You won’t be locked into one system or brand – instead, you’ll always enjoy a selection of dozens of top brands. Certified partner products make interoperability the rule, never the exception. From carbon monoxide detectors, door and window sensors, smart ovens, and radiator thermostats to vacuum cleaners, washers, and sirens, Vera’s suite of home automation solutions will inspire and empower any homeowner.


Vera home automation technology is a lot simpler than you’d think. With a single lightweight wireless network (one that differs from your WIFI signal) and a basic Internet connection, Vera’s home automation solutions allow you to see and control just about anything in your home – from anywhere in the world. Vera utilizes Z-Wave’s lightweight wireless technology to remotely control devices in residential and commercial environments.

Z-Wave’s smart technology is simple enough for the basic homeowner to install. Once it’s set up, you’ll hook up a controller or “hub,” which functions as the heart of the smart home, delivering messages from devices to you via your smart phone or tablet. Once your controller is up and running, it’s simple to add devices one by one – a smart switch here, a smart water valve there, smart lighting inside and out. Z-Wave and Vera make it easy to grow your smart home over time, adding and subtracting devices as your family requires.


With a Vera home automation system, you’ll never have to wonder whether you turned off the lights, the water, or the oven. Vera home automation security systems allow you to keep an eye on your property day or night, so you’ll be the first to know if an intruder approaches. Smart alarms, lighting, and sensors can alert the authorities to a breach instantly- even if you’re across the globe. You can monitor on the comings and goings of your home, keeping track of children, pets, and elderly relatives, so you’ll never have to worry about someone wandering off.

Vera home automation systems can also avert expensive environmental damage to the home. Smart water valves and pumps, for example, can prevent dangerous flooding from getting out of control - and can alert you to slow leaks that could lead to big problems over time, like structure deterioration and mold. Or, consider smart air detectors, like carbon monoxide detectors and smoke alarms, which make air quality monitoring a no-brainer. You’ll never have to remember to change batteries or test systems, because smart technology alerts you when maintenance is needed.

From dimmers and door and window sensors to security cameras and motion sensors, Vera’s got you covered when it comes to home automation and remote control.
