I received my Vera2 on Feb. 2, the day that version 1083 of UI4 was released. So I benefitted immediately from this stable and full-featured version. Without question, this product is outstanding and stands above the competitive products like Schlage Link and HomeSeer that require monthly subscriptions. For the consumer who wants simple plug-and-play who is willing to be locked into a single vendor, those solutions might be ok but not for me and not for those who will want to take charge of their home automation.
As a software engineer of 30 years experience, I can say that it's obvious that a huge amount of coding, refinement, and hammering on the anvil of practical feedback went into UI4. This is *the* product for those who want the widest possible z-wave vendor compatibility and functionality. I am very happy with my purchase and the credit goes to the Dev Team (whoever they are) who made this outstanding product.
After reading these forums for years, watching the ripples being smoothed out before diving in myself, the other hobbyists who gave feedback clearly deserve substantial credit. A tip of the hat to those pioneers. They say you can tell a pioneer by the arrows in their backs....
And for those like myself who are technical but cautious, now is the time to jump into pool. Put a fork in it, this product works reliably. Nothing else matches it.
