  1. Looks exciting 🙂 But I think I will wait for the Vera 4. Hope it won’t be long until they announce it.

    We had confirmation from Vera that the Edge is replacing both Vera Lite and Vera 3 – there are no other versions currently planned.

    Vera Edge is something that I am considering but how does it compare to Fibaro Home Center 2 and Home Center Lite.

    Has anyone got any suggestions or advice?
