I have an existing Nexia system with a Trane XL1050 thermostat. I was working for Trane at the time I got it, but I quickly learned the limitations of the product as I expanded my system. My biggest gripe is the lack of compatible products, and the camera system they offer is awful. I also hate paying a subscription fee, but I could live with that if the overall offering was better.
Vera looks like a a good product with a wide range of compatible products. My biggest question is, can I use my existing Zwave devices with Vera? If its not compatible with Nexia that’s OK, I am thinking I could just remove all the devices from my Nexia network and ditch the subscription fee and them add them to Vera. I would just keep the XL1050 stat for HVAC control.
