Not in the documentation but I tested it on my old Vera Edge and it seems to work as well.
Openluup (22 devices, 58 scenes, 11 apps) and iobroker controlling VeraPlus with 117 zwave nodes, 8 Zigbee nodes, 7 apps, 246 vera devices, 80 scenes; VeraEdge (0 node, 26 devices, 6 App, 0 scene); Bridged to Homekit and Alexa.

Without wifi, Vera engineering is telling me I have to uninstall an outlet near my router (the Vera is plugged in there), install the z-wave outlet, pair, uninstall the z-wave outlet, re-install the original outlet, and finally install the z-wave outlet in its correct location. Does anyone else think this is *ridiculous*?

I've managed that by making a short cable with plug on the one side and free wires on the other side. Whenever I need to include new in-wall device, I first connect it to that cable and then plug in near Vera to make inclusion.

But lacking of WiFi client mode is a problem anyway since a lot issues may happen, like reset and a need of re-including some already installed in-wall device, or a need to remove-include procedure due to change of device's configuration settings or adding new sub-components to it (some devices need such procedure, i.e. after attaching additional temperature sensor or changing settings for external switch attached to the device).

At my home I have furthest device c.a. 150m (500ft) from the controller and no possibility to install anything in between (no buildings, no power line). This can be managed if I move controller to one side of the house and use z-wave repeater at remote location, while router is in other side of the house. The router is connected to external antenna, so I can't move it easily. Without WiFi client mode I would have to pass Ethernet cable across the whole house to make it work (fortunately I have Edge model).
