Choosing a Migration Path Fom Veralite to Vera Plus

Dear All,

I run for many year on my now old Veralite and I’m glad to say that evertyhing work fine for me.
Now I want to upgrade to vera plus (before Veralite would be dead)

I have arround 15 fibaro devices on it
My first objective is not to loose my zwave network. I think backup on the on the Vera lite and restore it to Vera Plus is enough… I’m true ?

Second is the upograde path
What is the best
Veralite UI5 -> Vera edge Ui7 (backup restore)
Veralite UI5->UI7 -> Vera Edge UI7 (backup restore)

I read lot of topics on that, and some time contributor said that the first assumption is the best, other the second one

Please I need your help and suggestion!


When I updated my Vera 3 from UI5 to UI6, and then UI7, I ended up starting all over from 5 to 6. I seem to remember my 6 to 7 migration worked fine, but I just cannot seem to remember. I seem to remember others having issues going from 5 to 7.

I would suggest getting in touch with support. That’s the safest choice.

Hi Both,

Many thanks for your opinion. As more I read about this migration as much I’m lost!!
I also see that there also Zwave network issue if you migrate from a vera to another one because off different harsdware, or that controller id will change.

I found that it is terrible that there is now simple way to upgrade with out starting from scratch!
