Noise on the street (nothing formally) suggests possibly 1st week of December, they (MCV) seem to be testing VERA 3 to ensure that it works with UI5. Also VERA 3 should be available around the same time-frame (early Christmas gift  ;D ... obviously with the proviso that nothing earth shattering (test wise) occurs between now and then..... Mike

yes, the plan is to release UI5 into a broad formal beta this coming week and then officially launch it in early to mid-December when Vera3 ships (and of course the firmware upgrade version for Vera2 users at the same time.

I don't even know where to ask this question, but can someone help me understand what Vera 3 is bringing to the table or point me to where that is described?   

I'm still using Vera 1 quite happily.  I did buy a Vera 2 shortly after it came out but ran into some problems with it so went back to using Vera 1.  Is there/will there be a trade-in program or upgrade path?

Any insight is greatly appreciated!

There's a topic here, including a link to the wiki with some specs.
Dezwaved at the moment...

@bluelew: is that a guess or do you really know that?

Vera 3 goes on sale December 9th, I would expect the UI to be available then or slightly ahead of that date.

great, just got my Vera2 4 weeks ago!

I am kind of starting to "unlike" MicasaVerde (just as everybody else in this forum) inability to communicate...

Anybody saw something about an exchange option?

They are also releasing a Vera "lite" version with a much cheaper price.  Maybe then,  I'll puchase  it.

If there's an upgrade path of some kind I may get it but I don't really see a need. The problems I have with Vera are unlikely to be solved by the new model. The issues all seem to be wither inherent with z-wave or due to firmware. I'm hoping the new firmware will correct many of the issues I encounter.
My forum account was apparently hacked by a leprechaun. And he's drunk all of the time. If a post of mine seems a little off kilter, it's probably because he made it.

MicasVerde answered my Mail concerning Vera3 and UI5 with following informations:
  • Vera3 is not shipping until December 9th
  • Vera3 will come with UI5.
  • At the same time as Vera3 is shipped Vera2 can be upgraded to UI5.
  • Upgrade/Exchange Promotion from Vera2 to Vera2 might be available in February - March.
  • If you are not a heavy user with over 60-70 nodes and lots of plugins you will not notice a difference in performance compared to Vera2.
