Ethernet Cable Connection

New user, Must the Ethernet cable stay forever connected between to Vera Hub and the WiFi hub or can the Vera communicate directly using WiFi? Can a laptop communicate with the Vera hub without the internet?

It’s recommended to have the Vera hub connected to your router via an Ethernet cable yes.

However it is possible to have Vera connect to your router via WiFi instead.

Do you have to direct this to happen or will it find the WiFi?

You have to set it to connect to your routers access point.

Settings - Net & WiFi

Under the “How does Vera connect to the Internet?” section.

Select “Through a Wi-Fi access point”

Thanks for the help. Edward
