GoKeyless™, a worldwide leader in keyless locks and access control, and Mi Casa Verde, makers of Vera Lite, the revolutionary, low-cost home automation and monitoring system, have joined forces to give you greater choice and flexibility for setting up your new remote controlled Schlage® Z-Wave locks, Kwikset® Home Connect™ locks, Yale Real Living locks, security camera, and your Z-Wave® enabled devices, such as lights, thermostat, siren, water sensor, motion sensors, shades, TV, garage door, and other appliances.
Vera is an amazingly simple solution for controlling your home, your home security, and energy usage. With plug-n-play setup to your WiFi router, the Vera home control system lets you remotely manage and oversee your appliances, lighting, thermostat, and all other products which make use of Z-Wave, including your security camera. The energy tracking component to Vera Lite is slick. Think of Vera as an energy conservation tool. It continually monitors and records how much energy you're using. Each time lights are turned on, or an appliance with your home is used, Vera traces it, and computes your energy use in an easy to understand, visually friendly display. This will save you money every month. Should you leave something on, like your lights or flat screen television, Vera has the ability to notify you. With your web-connected cell phone, tablet, or an internet-connected PC, you can turn them off.
To begin, all you need is your new Schlage® Z-Wave lock, Kwikset SmartCode with Home Connect lock, or Yale Real Living lock, the Vera Lite unit, and an active subscription to the Z-Wave® gateway at MiOS.com*.
*(FREE Basic Service - There is no charge for using the MiOS service for secure, remote access of your home from a web browser or cell phone. There is also no charge for email notifications. Scroll down for details.)
Next, plug in Vera, connect it to your router (or modem/IP Network), and then Vera does the rest. Vera will recognize your new Schlage® Z-Wave locks, Kwikset Home Connect locks, or Yale Real Living locks, and any Z-Wave® enabled home automation & security devices such as your surveillance camera, lighting, motion sensors, floor fan, siren, and thermostat.
Z-Wave® is a widely used wireless control protocol. When combined with Schlage® Z-Wave locks, Kwikset's SmartCode with Home Connect, or the Yale Real Living lock, Vera gives you 24/7 command of your property's security. Simple to setup and use, and fully hack-proof, (same commercial grade security used for online banking) Vera is essential for anyone looking to better protect their loved ones, experience the thrill and convenience of remote automation, and reduce their energy costs.

- Let you setup commands for an actionable event, for example, as soon as your child comes home from school, the lights turn on, and the air kicks in to bring down the temperature. Then in 5 minutes, certain lights automatically turn off to conserve energy (trust us, your kids will forget to turn them off!)
- Remotely access, monitor and administer from any web-connected PC, or web-enabled phone, your Schlage® LiNK™ or Kwikset SmartCode with Home Connect wireless locks, and your other Z-Wave® devices
