Looking for a way to start using domotica in my apartment, I found Z-Wave the most appropriate, as I didn’t want to put any cable to connect a sensor or an actor.
In my search for a controller, I started with the razberry board that is connected with some GPIO pins to a (you can guess it) Raspberry PI.
After connecting some sensors (motion / temperature) and actors (power switches), the performance and stability of this razberry (or my Raspberry) was into question.
In my search for solutions I noticed that the community behind the razberry was small (or I just didn’t find it), making me question if I should deviate to a different controller.

The Vera3 (UI5 version) came out of my search. At the price of 199 euro, it was within my budget.

Today (september 2015) it has over 154 devices connected to it.
