About Vera Smarter Home Control
Vera Smarter Home Control is a new type of home automation device which claims that, using basic wireless technology and your existing internet system, Vera can let you see and control just about anything in your home, from anywhere.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, when you purchase Vera Smarter Home Control you will get a hub device that you can place in your home which easily connects to your home's internet router using an included cable. Vera promises that their system can contact with all devices that utilize wireless Z-Wave technology, guaranteed. Z-Wave behaves similar to Wi-Fi, but is specifically designed for home automation.
Users will then download the Vera mobile app to your smartphone or chosen tablet device in order to control the smart devices in your home, like thermostats, lights, locks, cameras, alarm systems, and more.
Vera offers a variety of different home automation products, from controllers, cameras, home accessories, and full home automation kits which are priced around $250, depending on the items that are included. The Hub itself can be purchased individually for $179.95.
Currently the Vera Smarter Home Control system mobile app is available on both iOS and Android devices.
Vera.com says that their device comes with a 30 day risk free money back guarantee which states that if you are unhappy for any reason within the first 30 days of purchase, you can return the device for a full refund.
To return your products, they must be in the original packaging and in a resalable state. In addition, there may be a 15% restocking fee applied to your return.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact their Customer Service team with questions, concerns, or complaints is to do so by email, at [email protected], by phone at 866-966-2272, or by submitting them directly to the website through their Contact Us link.
It seems as though the general opinion of Vera Smarter Home Control is that is a difficult system to set up if you are not very tech savvy, and even if you are, the system itself is best when it is just coordinating a few devices.
Competitors and Alternatives?
It is pretty early in the home automation market - currently SmartThings and Revolv are some of the only devices in competition with Vera, though now the door has been opened there will likely be many more competitors.
