Yes, there is an european version. And also some other localized versions (Australia, Hong Kong etc). However, I do not know which suits the UAE rules. I think the difference is mainly in the frequency the radio system has, and this has to match the local rules for what frequency is to used for what purpose.

I am reasonably sure that UAE requires the use of the European versions of Z-Wave products which use 868MHz and 220 Volts/50 cycles(Hz).

American Z-Wave products will not work nor be legal in the UAE. U.S. versions of Vera use 908.42MHz and 110 Volts/60 cycles(Hz).

The main issue is that the Forum's Search field, when used from within a specific sub-board, will only search that sub-board. 

When users are in the wrong sub-board (like, say, "General"), then uses of the search function, from within General, only search there. 

When users nav to the forum root and run the same search, it covers a much broader set of the overall forum (but the UI doesn't indicate that, at least not clearly)

Not perfect, but it does work a lot better.

To get a sense of this, try using the Search field from each of these starting addresses, using a criteria of "UAE":

...I didn't want to insult anyone, if I did, sorry!

I just like lmgtfy.com since it also includes that little hint "you could have achieved this yourself"...  ;D  And it is in my signature since a couple of weeks.

@Da_JoJo,
Too many people think of Google as a simply an appliance to just search for things, and they can't be bothered to learn how to do anything more than type the question and hit search.

@chixxi,
I may have been suffering from "functional illiteracy" and didn't pay attention to your signature. :)  The problem is, how many people will ignore it and still go with the simplest route (path of least resistance) of asking someone else?
