Note: Currently these instructions only work with the 2.78 z-wave firmware. I haven't gotten this to work with the 3.20 z-wave firmware.
I just got this working! I specifically bought the multi-wave pool controller and vera so I could control and monitor my pool remotely.
It took me quite a bit of trial and error to get this working. My biggest issue was I had already installed and programmed the pool controller and remote and they were working perfectly. I really didn't want to wipe out the config. These were the only z-wave devices in my house.
I could not get vera to include the pool receiver (the pe653 receiver installed at the pool power box). The include light on the pe653 indicated that it had successfully been included, but vera didn't see it. Finally I reluctantly reset the pe953 remote and pe653 receiver to the factory defaults and then vera was able to include and control it. People more knowledgeable than me with vera and z-wave might be able to do this without resetting the pool devices, but after a frustrating day I gave up, reset them and it just worked.
So, for others interested in doing this, here are the steps I took to get vera talking to this device. For the record, I have version 31 of the pool controller firmware and 1183 of the vera firmware.
1. Reset the pe953 and pe653 to the factory defaults. YOU WILL LOSE YOUR EXISTING POOL PROGRAMMING BY DOING THIS!
2. Include the pe653 receiver as a z-wave device in vera. you should see 6 new devices: 5 appliance devices (one for each circuit) and a _Pool Control device.
3. Include the pe953 remote as a new controller in vera. Start vera looking for a new controller. on the pe953 remote, enter the config screens, go to the CNTRL OPTION screen and select 2 - CONTROLLER COPY. Press 2 again to receive the network config. It should say successful after a few seconds. I had to pull the batteries out to reset the remote after doing this. the manual says it should reset automatically once successful. YMMV. after the remote reboots, it should say XXS in the upper right corner of the screen, where XX is the remote's fw version.
4. Link the pe653 receiver to the pe953 remote. Enter the config screens on the pe953, press 3 to include a device, and press the include button on the pe953 receiver.
That should do it. You should now be able to control the pe653 again with the remote. You can now reprogram the pool controller.
The only remaining issue I have is I can't see the air and water temps in vera.
Is this possible?
