Z-Wave Hour Glass Effect and Vera WIFI Bridge Setup
The hour glass effect will kill your Z-Wave Mesh Network leaving you dead in the water wishing you never made the original Smart Home investment.

Steps on setting your UI7 Vera into Wireless Bridge Mode

1. Log into your Vera Controller

2. Navigate to Settings – Net & WiFi

3. Under “How does vera Connect to the Internet?” select Through an Wi-Fi access point.

4. Click Scan and cognac to a wifi network and wait for WiFI access points to populate.

5. Enter the WiFi password for the access point you want to connect to and click pick.

6. Once you click pick a warning box will pop up. Click OK; if you don’t click ok the settings will not be saved and this will not work.

7. Wait 5 seconds and unplug your network cable. After 2 minutes unplug the power adaptor to power cycle the unit. Once moved to your new desired location you can plug back in. Once fully booted you will be able to access your Vera just like it was hardwired to the internet.

This will currently work on and Vera Running UI7 (VeraEdge, VeraPlus)

Hi thanks for that video, it has left me wanting to know how will this configuration affect my wifi sensors/ controls eg. Sonoff devices on my network.

alex arguijo says:

I have the same question, is there a way to diagnosis a hourglass node?

Paul Wilkinson says:

How do you know if you have an Hour Glass effect? I suspect I have but is there a way with a Vera Plus to map your single point of failure with Neighbors? and once you’ve found that single point of failure can you force a re-discovery if devices have moved?

Mauricio Gomez says:

Excuseme. I can see the option (Through in Wi-Fi access point) I dont understand why my controller VeraPlus doesnt have.
Do you know something about this issue?

Michael Hinchey says:

Hello. I see that you haven’t answered any questions on this page but here goes nothing. Does the Vera plus also act as a wifi router?

Benjamin Anderson says:

can I do this with veralite??
