Hello from Vera


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I just joined to find out some more about Fibaro. I am considering ditching my old and never updated Vera Lite and looking for a new alternative.


So i'll have some Questions.

First would be is the home centre2 worth the extra $400 Australian over the lite? And why?


And does anyone know if there is a similar thing to the PLEG plugin on Vera? it allows complicated scenes with lots of triggers and conditions? or do you simply not need it with Fibaro?


Anywho, Howdy.

The big question is, are there critical applications, like heating, that you control from your VERA? If not, you can switch. I cannot tell you if the money is worth it. I can only tell you that i consider the recent FIBARO software for the HC2 as defective. You can check my other posts if you want to know why.

I agree with JanRemco. I've migrated here from Domoticz originally but wanted a proprietary system that functioned as a polished, professional product. I tried Homey, not good if you want to programme a little, then Zipabox... so so but very poor support and finally the Fibaro HC2.... and my heating bills doubled. It is SO unreliable. I only trust it to turn on lights in the same room as I am sitting, which renders it useless. I have found that the Fibaro heat controllers work really well with the Zipabox and once I have My Domoticz Nuc talking to my Zipabox... bye bye HC2. It's only plus side is that it can perform updates on Fibaro devices... which are mostly excellent.

So... If the Vera is doing it's job, either save your money or go for Domoticz :)
