Pretty good price on this. Manufacturer had it for $59 not long ago but as they didn't discount it for BF or CM, I'm not sure if/when that deal will return.

Not a bad price, but I think the VeraPlus is worth the premium. On sale too for $117.https://www.amazon.com/Vera-Contr...6TVSHKST9A

Hm...$45 more. Looks like I get more RAM and zigbee capabilities. I'm already well invested into z-wave, so I doubt I'll ever use zigbee...but never can be sure. Ponder, ponder.....

i noticed that a lot of these hubs are not wireless. Isnt that a negative since you have to keep the hub near the router instead of a more central location?

Z-wave is a mesh so as long as the hub is hear one device then the others will relay. I have the Vera Plus in a closet in my office and I don't have any problem with devices on the other side of the house.

Many people who engage in home automation, like myself, usually have Ethernet cable run throughout their house. I have a secondary wireless extender situated in a big room in the center of the house with the Vera Edge sitting right next to it.

I use a Wink as a way to bridge Zigbee to Vera Edge. There is an excellent plug in for Wink that can be run in Vera Edge.

Does Vera do 1% dim in automated scenes?

My smart things only does 10% diming in automation not less. But manually it does 1% I don't understand why. Customer service says its because some dimmers don't support 1% well mine do!

10% dimming is about 70% illumination so its useless. The 1% dim is approx 30% illumination so its much better option.

I need 1% dimming in many scenes like night hallway light and party lights. Sucks..
