Lowes Door/Window Sensor - I purchased two late last year and just tried to pair them with my Vera Plus.  NO Luck, it detects the device. I even had the opportunity to name it, however not luck.  It fails to setup, I noticed that it flashed in blue across the top of the screen "Device failed to configure".  Is this impossible to detect?  Will I W/O those sensors any ideas?

The Iris Door/Windows sensor is a proprietary implementation of ZigBee.  These will only work with the Lowe's early hub.  The newer Iris Contact sensor is ZigBee HA 1.2.  I have one of these and it will pair.  It does not report temperature or battery condition though.

So, ZigBee from the perspective of what is under the hood is very different from Z-Wave. Z-Wave insists on inter compatibility and sharing the information necessary for devices that don't conform exactly to the devices classes. ZigBee makes no claim to universal compatibility, you are limited to first the devices that can be universal and then each one needs essentially its own driver in order to work within our platform. So with simple Z-Wave devices they will usually work with no work on our part; with ZigBee, we have to do something for every device that we want to add to the platform. You can't really just pick a device and add it and expect it to work unless it is on the compatibility list.

Does Vera have stock in Aeotec?

I was having some bizarre results with Sylvania Osram Lightify bulbs from Lowes. (http://www.lowes.com/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10051&langId=-1&productId=999910805&partNumber=751721-3-73893&storeId=10151) Out of the 3 bulbs I have, the first one paired fine with VeraPlus. While I picked Osram Sylvania LED11BR30/DIM/IQ/827 in the list, at the pairing it showed up as an independent/generic Zigbee bulb but the on/off/dimming all worked as it should be right off the bat. However the other 2 bulbs, even after several reset/re-pairing, both failed paring/configuration initially and showed up as plugin control. However somehow VeraPlus figure out the configuration overnight and the next morning the bulbs became functional. So I guess for those who got the same issue with GE Link bulbs, maybe it's a good idea to be patient and wait o/n.

Marc, That list shows the netatmo thermostat and weather station as supported (I know it's not zigbee and off topic) but every time I select "add the Thermo or weather station from the add new devices button on my plus nothing happens and when I contacted support they told me I had to use the third party netatmo plugin which also does not support the Thermo as I understand

Aeotec probably gave them a pile of kit for free to test and get working. Good, forward looking sales technique.
At least, that's what I would do if I sold this type of kit.

Not that anyone has told me but we do work closely with them. We have great relationship with them, they make great stuff, they give us what we need and have people in place that we can work with to get to the bottom of an issue. Not all of the vendors that work with Vera are as easy to work with.

I had a similar issue with GE. Give it some time. There is a lot going on that you can't see under the hood. If you continue to have problems email Customer Care, enable remote access and include the code in the email and feel free to CC me.

Hello  Marc
As fare as I know there are still problems with Aeon 4in1 and Domitech bulbs.
4in1 is not configuring.
Domitech bulbs are turning on at night, and sometimes at reload.
Regards CE
My Aeon 4 in 1 isn't working as well. Hoping for a resolution.

If you have a USB power supply you can spare, try plugging the sensor in and see how it works if that is an option with it.

That's exactly right. They send a couple of samples to our engineering team and we do the same. We've send them a few controllers so they can do testing as well.

Now if only the other manufacturers would do the same.  8)

Tilt sensing functionality for the NYCE Garage Door (Tilt) Sensor Model NCZ-3014 is working with my VeraPlus.

Hi Marc,  I appreciate your posts on the forum.  Please help me understand ZigBee and Vera Plus a little better.  I have an Iris Contact Sensor.  It is labeled as a ZigBee HA 1.2 compatible device.  Even thought it is not on Vera's compatible list, shouldn't it in theory work at least as a generic device?

Is Vera Plus fully HA 1.2 compatible?  I thought the whole point of having a standard and adhering to it was interoperability.

Thanks,
Chris
