Adding Vera to Existing GE Remote controlled z-wave network.

So my question is, what is the best way to add vera to my network. Is it as easy as transferring the primary controller to vera, or will i encounter problems if i go that route?

Should I instead, go around and remove all of the devices from the network using my GE remote, and then setup the Vera as if it were a brand new installation?

Would I also need to ‘remove’ my secondary controllers from my network before incorporating them to the newly setup vera network? Is that even possible?

Thanks in advance for a response! Just looking to make the initial setup as easy as possible. Can’t wait to have Vera in control of my z-wave!
