NO and YES/NO you can upgrade your Vera 3 to UI7 ... but if you move to the newer Veras you need to start over.!
Thanks Richard.
Only reason I was looking at the upgrade was for better support of home assistant.  Pleg does all I need but it's the deeper integrations which are getting tricky that drove me to Haas.

Is ui7 on vera3 worth the hassle otherwise?

I finally made the switch from Vera3/UI5 to VeraSecrus/UI7 and am happy so far.  A few issues, one of which took me a whole day to figure out, but now it is up and stable - in fact it seems to rarely reload the Luup engine, compared to the nightly reload associated with the UI5 nighly heal.  In fact, that is why I wanted to upgrade to UI7 - I was tired of things not working, or being real, real slow, between 2am and 4am every night.  I am usually asleep during this time - but if I am NOT then I want my HA system working perfectly...
Long Live UI5!  (OK finally made the switch to UI7 in January 2018, and am pretty happy....)

You might talk to Vera Support.
They have a Z-Wave chip firmware update that I am testing with on my Plus  ...
That solved many of my Z-Wave problems.

The Z-Wave version is 4.61 L:1  (Settings - Z-Wave settings)

Hi Richard,  what problems did this new z-wave chip firmware exactly solve for you ?

And Sorin M, when can we expect the official roll out of this new firmware ?
