vera hub in australia
« on: February 28, 2017, 07:52:49 pm »
Hi, I want to use the hub in my house, but I see there are 2 options, normal or "European" version on the buy page.

So my question is, if I get any of the versions and just get the sensors/actuators compatible with that version i should be fine yes?

I saw for Australia the frequency is 921.42Mhz, so what version is that?, should i care?

Thanks!

You should use whichever Vera version complies with your electric system in combination with an Aeon Z-Stick Gen5 that uses the Australian frequency. You should use this in combination with Z-Wave devices specifically for the Australian market.

Using non-Australian frequencies is against Australian law.

It doesn't need to be a AEON USB, there are other alternatives.

The advantage of going this route is that when you get fed up with Vera, you can take your network with you to whatever other controller you choose.
Living in the Land of Oz, give me a vegemite sandwich. Home Seer, Vera Lite & Edge, Popp, Black Cat Smart Hub & Vera G, Black Cat Lite 1 & 2's a Black Cat Dimmer or 2, then some  Black Cat Cat's Eye PIR's & Door-Window Sensors plus a Z-UNO or 2.
