Quick Installation Guide
Plug the unit in and connect it to the Internet with the Ethernet cable provided in the box. Go to VeraControl’s website and follow the step-by-step instructions to set up an account and register your controller. Make sure you follow the directions carefully. If you encounter any issues during this process, feel free to contact us or Vera directly (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you come across a screen prompting you to manually enter the serial number and mac address for the unit it is most likely because the you have not updated the Vera’s firmware during the setup process. If you’ve missed that step you can always go back and perform the firmware update or use this link: firmware.getvera.com
Another reason for the screen to pop up might be that your Vera is not properly connected to your router. Make sure all indicators on the Vera hub are lit up in green. But when in doubt, you may always contact Vera Control – they have access to all account information ever associated with a given unit by its unique serial number.
Adding devices later is easy too with pre-configured settings for most Z-Wave products. If you can’t pair a device, Vera will offer to unpair it first – complete this process to erase any configuration errors which might have occurred during previous pairing attempts.
