Anyone made the move to Nexia?  I have only stuck with Verizon because of the HMC, and I have stuck with the HMC because of the amount of money I have invested in the equipment. I am excited to make the move in hopes that they are everything Verizon is not.

Well, hopefully from ZERO (Verizon) you can only move up. :-)

 

As you may know, your cameras will not work on the other system (they barely work on Verizon). But some of your other equipment should still work like Light Modules and Door/Window Sensors.

 

Good Luck.

I started the process and the first thing you do is move your cameras to the Nexia system.  There is an updater that you download and it updates the firmware.  I added my cameras with very little effort.   I downloaded the Nexia app on my ipad and my android phone and the video quality looks much better than it did with Verizon.  I placed the order for the Nexia bridge and should have it soon.  If you're interested I will post my experience in transitioning everything else.

HOLD ONE THERE!

 

Dukestane, how did you move your cameras? Were they Verizon cameras? Do you have the username and password for the cameras?
 
Been wanting to excape the black-cloud that is Verison for the last year but could not because they would not release the camera codes.
 
Please enlighten me!

All,

 

Here is an overview of the transition process to Nexia complete with FAQs. You can absolutely move your Verizon cameras to their service. Nexia is an awesome platform that has been in the home automation space for 7 years and has amazing functionality you can take advantage of. They have monthly software updates adding new features and continuously add products to their portfolio. There are over 400 devices that can pair with the Nexia platform.

 

 
You can also learn more about Nexia generally by going to nexiahome.com, however the link above provides instructions on how to begin the navigation process.

It seems that Verizon has provided the codes to Nexia because there is a firmware updater that you will need to run before you move your cameras to the Nexia system.  Looks like the monthly will remain $9.99 a month and bridge is free when you make the transition.  I am not sure what access to the cameras will be givven by Nexia.

OH, and by the way, thanks Verizon for letting me know that the system is shuting down. An email or phone call would have been nice.

Received my Nexia bridge on Friday.  Moved everything over to Nexia without any issues.  I was even able to connect a dimmer I purchased on ebay that would not work with Verizon.  I was able to recreate all the different modes and triggers I had set up.  I am now tweeking everything making it all works.  Nexia seems to respond much quicker than Verizon, I also like the android  and  ipod apps  better than Verizons.  So far so good.  I have zero complaints.  I have two vent fans in my attic that I need to add and then I am cancelling Verizon.  Another thing I like is that the cameras are not dependant on the bridge.   I was able to move and view my cameras before I received the bridge.
