Are these the same devices that were used with iris? If so try to exclude with the Vera and then include them again.

If the devices were previously included with another controller, I'm pretty sure (I could be wrong)  you need to exclude them first from the Iris. This is safety/security feature of Z-wave.

Important Edit: The Smart Plug For Iris is NOT Z-wave compatible. One thing you have to be aware of is that Iris uses a combination of Zigbee AND Z-wave devices. Not everything will work with Vera, which is Zwave only.

From your list, the ones I believe will work with Vera (I have some Iris devices on my Vera too):

Duplex receptacle
Kwikset lock
Range extender - I believe this range extender is in fact dual protocol. I can't guarantee it.

Hope this helps,
