We’re pleased to announce that the 7.0.19 Software Update has been released. It includes a broad array of bug fixes, performance improvements, and new device interoperability. We’ve added support for Honeywell Home Lyric Thermostats, Kichler Lighting Design Pro LED Controllers, Nortek Security & Control In Wall Switches, Vera Control, Ltd. VistaCam 900, and much, much more. Additionally, we’ve added Beta access to our Central Monitoring Service. Vera controllers are designed for both self-monitored and optional Central Monitoring operation. Now you can continue to self-monitor your Vera system, while adding the extra assurance that police, fire, or medical services will be called automatically if there’s a problem. A team of Security Industry Association-certified alarm operators will monitor your system to protect your home and loved ones. It’s a higher level of security, 24/7/365.
The ‘beta’ label indicates that this service is well tested but would benefit from additional community testing before it is commercially released to all users. As part of the Beta, for a limited time, Vera is offering a one-year subscription to the Central Monitoring Service for $199.95 (a $240 Value). In addition, you can purchase a Cellular & Battery Backup Kit for $69.95. If anything happens to your Internet service, Cellular Backup will automatically ensure emergency messages get through by using the cellular data network. The Battery Backup protects against power outages for up to 8-hours. With this special introductory offer you are under no obligation to continue beyond the first year of service*. Regardless of whether you continue beyond the first year, you will keep the Cellular & Battery Backup Kit. *After the first year, you must maintain continuous service to keep the Cellular Backup service active. Battery Backup will keep working regardless of CMS, and can work without CMS. Please download today for the latest compatibility, functionality, and security.
