Vera3 vs lmce
« on: June 09, 2013, 09:21:13 am »
The LMCE Compatible store (!/~/category/id=280103&offset=0&sort=normal) lists the controller Vera3.
From what I read, Vera3 is a lightweight alternative to lmce.

A friend of mine wants to control electricity, light, temperature, door lock, security (door sensor, motion sensor, smoke detector) using z-wave devices. He is not interested in media control.

Two questions:
1) Is it fair to say that for this purpose, I could use Vera3 instead of lmce?
2) Why is Vera3 specified in the LMCE Compatible store? Can it be added to lmce in anyway instead of replacing it?

Asus P5GD2-X, Intel i915P/G, Pentium 4 3.2 GHz, 2.5GB, nvidia Geforce 8800, Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1850

I Use vera  along with lmce.

I setup vera as the primary z-wave controller and lmce as a secondary.
Both systems can be used to control your z-wave devices.


My Setup

For LinuxMce compatible  systems and accessories

you can also have a look at ago control. But no door lock support via Z-Wave..
