Installation Instructions for
Omni Z-Wave Interface Plugin for Vera Controllers – UI7
Serial Connection for Leviton Automation Controllers
Thank you for downloading the Omni Z-Wave Interface Plugin. These instructions outline how to connect a Vera
3 Controller running User Interface Version 7 to a Leviton Automation Controller. These instructions are also
suitable for the Vera Lite and Vera Edge running User Interface Version 7. This manual does not provide
instructions on how to pair your Z Wave devices to the Vera.
The Plugin provides two way instant feedback and control (activation license required) of Z Wave dimmers, relays,
appliance plugs, roller shutters and door locks from a Leviton Omni automation board.
What’s Required
The following items are required:
1 x Vera Controller
1 x USB to DB9M cable
1 x DB9M to RJ12 cable
1 x Ethernet Cable
1 x Plugin Activation Key
1 x Omni Automation Board
Connecting the Hardware
Before powering on the Vera 3 Controller (“Vera”) connect the USB cable to the bottom USB port on the
Vera, connect the Ethernet cable between the WAN port of the Vera and your home network and connect
the DB9M to RJ12 cable to the USB cable and a spare serial port on the automation controller (use serial
port 2-5). You can now power on the Vera.
Your Vera is ready when the Power, WAN & Wi-Fi lights are solid green. USB port 1 light will also be solid
green. It may take up to 15 minutes whilst the Vera upgrades the firmware to the latest version which is
part of the initial power up process of the Vera. Do not power off the Vera during this period.
