Hopefully documentation for this improves.  If it is anything like what we are seeing now, then a lot of stuff will break and remain broken.

Kinda like the bugs on the bug tracker. :)

Aaron from MCV stated that the next firmware will require updating third party apps for the new authentication. I do not think they will leave the Vera 3 and Lite users behind. Vera 2 would be questionable.

For VeraLite for sure as this product will continue to exist besides the new produits Vera Pro  and Vera

Vera Lite and Vera 3 are the same platform with the 3 being slightly better spec. So both should be supported.

@bottrader & garrettwp: Just speculations or knowledge?

Looking at the new packages, I don't think they will leave vera 3 or vera light users behind. I would only expect that the vera 3 will be fitted in a new box an be called vera pro. But these are guesses, no facts.

After seeing getvera.com, my conclusion is that I am a little dissapointed, I would have expected some hard- or software updates, but basically getvera.com is just a new website. However, I have seen pictures of new vera's and new UI's, so basically it's only a question about how long it will take until these are published. The great thing about getvera.com is the commitment to endusers, I was afraid that Micasaverde would stop supplying endusers and concentrate on OEM deals. But seeing hints on new hardware and software as well as their name change seems to be proof that endusers are still part of their strategy.

What I know directly from MCV themselves:
- They have invested heavily over the last 9 months in “consumerizing” the brand and solutions to reach a broader audience and increase sales for dealers.
- They announced at the CEDIA show in Denver that they are transitioning the Mi Casa Verde brand to Vera.
- All the web properties and all the supporting collateral are being updated.

It's speculation. The pro model if they haven't changed the specs from 2013 ces is a much beefier system. Much more powerful cpu, 1GB of memory, etc.

+1  for speculation but this is of course the mandatory strategy for MCV in order to have minimum product line continuity between the last existing products Vera3/VeraLite (UI5) toward new products based on UI7 (and optimized maintenance effort).

I have currently one Vera Lite and I am waiting this new product availability to decide to buy a new wave controller from VERA ( VeraLite ; Vera Pro )

Some news here (in French): http://blog.domadoo.fr/2013/10/15/euw13-micasaverde-devient-vera-control-ltd-presente-ui7/#more-28251
Vera Control ltd has presented (not shown) UI7 in Amsterdam this week. This user interface will be a big change, it will be possible to control and even configure everything from a smartphone. UI7 will be released end 2013 and available for VeraLite and Vera 3. No plan for releasing new boxes for now.

release by end of 2013 and even beta testers are not aware of it yet? (according to this forum).
this sounds suspicious, to say least.
on other hand beta testers can be under NDA...

We all know there is something on the horizon but other than what is already detailed there is limited information.  I do not see this as anything but normal.  They are still conducting internal testing as has been stated. There has been a lot of criticism previously about releases to public, so I am not surprised at all.

If moving to UI7 is anything like migrating from UI4 to UI5 (don't even get me started on the pain with UI3), then I for one will consider not bothering especially if there is no real enhanced functionality like tools that help fix your Z-wave network (rather than making it worse), or things like conditional logic!

Rather leave it in up to them nothing worse than getting rushed buggy code.

I've been using UI5 for a good month or so as complete noob to home automation all running smoothly and rock solid at present. 2 Ip cameras, squeeze intergration, Xbmc state, Doorbell scene, a few lights so far. Took awhile to setup so if they can make this easier without breaking anything I would be happy and add some polish to the UI, it is 2013 btw lol..

Notifications could use alot of work by the looks hardest to setup and you would think it be the easiest. VeraAlerts fixes it but very tricky to setup, Micsaverde need to tidy this up..

Hope my VeraLite lasts atleast a year before a upgrade ???  :D

I agree.  Transitions on heavily custom set ups ought to be done carefully and cautiously.  It's easy enough as it is to nerf one's set up as it is.

There is also some information on getvera.com, or to be correct twitter:

https://twitter.com/VeraLovers/statuses/390508914497695744

As for the moment I would translate this into "There is a chance to see UI7 running in 2013, no chances for the new vera's till 2014."
