Ahoy ya'll,

 

My Vera Lite G, after years of service, has died. Unfortunately for me, half my house is now controlled by Z-Wave in someway so I'm desperately looking for a Z-Wave USB stick or a replacement Vera unit. 

 

Cheers

See if active automation are trading. If not they might be at level 3

Active Automation aren't trading in Level 4. I'm also after one but don't have such urgency!

Indeed they aren't, which makes sense. I normally wouldn't be so desperate but I have a large amount of Z-Wave devices hanging off my Vera Lite G, although not exactly essential it's sure incredibly inconvenient. Terrible timing for a normally reliable appliance to fall over randomly.

Yes theirs are compatible with ours.

 

Personally, unless it's needed this weekend, I'd email ActiveAutomation and see if they hope to trade under level-3 - since it's increasingly looking like that may be the new reality next week.

You're certain it's not just the power supply that has failed?

Um, yes. Very certain. 

 

The Z-Wave chip itself appears to have died. If Vera support can't get it going, it's dead.
