Q: Is there any advantage to running a Vera Edge and a Vera Plus at the same time. I would like to buy a Vera Plus but I was thinking that it might be nice to leave my Vera Edge as is and then use the new one with it. Is this possible?

A: The AutomationBridge will only work with one controller - I not believe it is possible to run two Veras and have them act as one system - best to move across completely.

Q: I was reading, please correct if I'm wrong... To control Z-wave switch from my iPhone (Apple Homekit) I need Fibaro Home Center and this Bridge??

A: You will need a Z-Wave controller such as the Fibaro Home Center or the Vera controllers (these are cheaper) - and the AutomationBridge.

Q: Will this connect Ring doorbell and Z-wave Yale Assure lock to homekit so I can lock door with Siri and check front doorbell camera?

A: The AutomationBridge will certainly allow you to add the Yale Z-Wave lock to HomeKit - however I am sorry to say it will not work with the Ring Doorbell (The Ring is a very closed system).

Q: I have two vera edge controllers in my system. If I bridge them (have read about doing this but haven't done it) will this work with both of them? Or do you need 1 per controller?

A: You should only need one AutomationBridge.

Q: Hi, thanks for your previous reply! Sorry I should have asked this before. I'm not clear on how my Harmony Hub would connect to automation bridge. Could you please advise?

----
I have the Vera Plus Z-Wave Home Controller and Harmony Hub. The Vera does my Zwave lights, the Harmony my AV system. I’d like to consolidate and control both with the one Apple HomeKit App. Will the bridge do this?

Many Thanks!

A: Yes - and it will do it brilliantly and reliably.

A: There is a plugin available for download through the AutomationBridge will only work with a Fibaro Home Center (noir Vera). However HomeKit will work with Vera through AutomationBridge.

Q: Will a VD from Fibaro HC2 be visible in HomeKit-Home-app and can it be used from there as a normal device?

A: Yes - with 2 buttons (1 per line) - On/Off label for each button. You will be able to control this through HomeKit - however if you change the state of the VD through HC - HomeKit has no way of monitoring this change - so it is possible for the button to be "out of sync" (on in HC2 - showing Off in HomeKit etc).
