I use the Weatherunderground plugin and PLEG to control the exterior lights depending on the sky conditions. With that API being phased out at the end of the year, some have used Darksky to glean the sky conditions. I think the Vera has the information since it reports sky and temperature based upon location.  I have been able to get the temperature but not the sky conditions.  So there are options you can find searching the forums.

Is WU still charging new customers for a key?

The message(s) I have gotten from WU is that all free keys will stop working today. I installed the DarkSky plugin. It is designed for openLuup, but it should work on a Vera as well. Search the forum for details.
