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: 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).

From Eric Korhonen on 17/11/2018

Q: I have one automation bridge already working with my Vera. Works great. I now have a Homey and was wondering do I need a seperate automation bridge to connect to it? I want to be able to use both Homey and Vera environments separately. Homey and Vera are on the same ip network controlling different z-wave devices. I am intending on replacing a indigo z-wave server with the Homey. I want both the Homey and Vera environments to have Alexa, Google Home support.
Eric

A: In this case, you will need 2 x AutomationBridge - simply because you are running two Z-Wave controllers.

From Keith on 06/09/2018

Q: Hi, may I know how do I connect the autobridge to veraplus and how can add z-wave devices to the Apple Home app? Thanks!

A: To connect to Vera, you simply add AutomationBridge to your network via ethernet cable and through the web-interface you add the IP address of your Vera - all of your devices will then be populated into AutomationBridge.

From there, you select which devices you would like included with HomeKit (simple one click add/remove button) and enter the HomeKit code for AutomationBridge into the Home app your iOS device - these devices will then be included as native HomeKit devices.

Q: Hello, I’m looking for more specific information of how the following Z-Wave compatible product types work with HomeKit (via Vera controller), specifically within the iOS Home app.

1. IP Cameras - can I view the live feed through the Home app?

2. Motorised Blinds - can I control the percentage level of the blind position via the Home app?

3. Garage Doors - can I open and close via the Home app?

4. Thermostats (Remotec) - can I set the temperature and mode via the Home app?

Essentially I just want to know if this bridge allows men to use the full functionality of HomeKit, rather than just a simple on/off switch.

Thank you

A: 1. IP Cameras - can I view the live feed through the Home app?

Cameras would need to be HomeKit compatible (AutoamationBridge does not support cameras).

2. Motorised Blinds - can I control the percentage level of the blind position via the Home app?

Yes.

3. Garage Doors - can I open and close via the Home app?

Yes.

4. Thermostats (Remotec) - can I set the temperature and mode via the Home app?

Yes.

From Kasia on 04/06/2018

Q: Can you send any link video how this integrated with fibaro ?
And if need any programming steps . Or just plug it to the system fibaro ?
How to connect !?

A: All we need to do with AutomationBridge is connect it to your router via the supplied ethernet cable. We then enter the IP address and login details for the Fibaro Home Center. Once connected, all of your Z-Wave devices and scenes will automatically be populated in AutomationBridge - Using a web browser, we then turn Z-Wave devices and scenes on with one mouse click to enable them for Google Home, Amazon Alexa or Apple HomeKit - there is 0% programming and is very easy to use.

Q: So I have Insteon for some things eg wired lights. I also have a bunch of non reliable plugs despite all effforts At placement. Will an automation bridge help me at all? I’d love to have HomeKit control of things. Any advice appreciated. Can obviously change out Insteon except where wired. R

A: Hi Rodney - unfortunately we do not have a solution for INSTEON and HomeKit - only Z-wave and HomeKit (through the AutomationBridge product) - this would mean changing all of your INSTEON modules over to Z-Wave.
