How to Pair VeraLink Devices
VeraLink is Vera's proprietary 345/433 MHz frequency - A great low-cost alternative to the existing wireless protocols, designed to work with Nortek's 2GIG Radio Frequency devices. Each VeraLink device must first be added to your Vera system for it to be recognized and controlled. This process is what is meant by "Adding Devices." Technically, when you add a VeraLink device, you are establishing a communication link between the device and your Vera controller.
