  2. IR Emitter that works with dual control systems

    Bring emitter into terminal block and provide your own diode. Have this in our showroom between Crestron and C4. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Messing about with alarm announcements

    Doing something similar in a urc house. Have the alarm contacts monitored through urc controller and based on the zone it triggers a relay on the back of hc250 to play audio back though system. It was an existing urc system so this was the easiest way to add announcements. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It works great. No on-demand (hopefully - yet) available, but full scanning, importing account favorites, searching by channel number and name. Note that it is one driver per account - ie you need one separate account per driver (this is a SiriusXM limitation - not complying is liable to get you flagged and frozen). Also note that it has SiriusXM's timeout - most channels will timeout the stream after 4 hours of inactivity (some are quicker/slower) - unless you have a business account.
  6. Would you like to take more ownership of your Control4 system? Do you (like many others I've met) own Composer Home Edition (HE), but don't really know how to use it very well? I am offering 1 on 1 personalized training sessions for people like you! PM me for more information or to schedule a session. I am a certified Control4 tech and have been programmed dozens of homes over the past several years. Thanks, Ari

    Excited to try this one out. The new Sonos XM is pretty lame. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    That would be awesome. I'm guessing there isn't a lot of demand but the EasyTouch system with ScreenLogic2 is pretty much all you really need unless you have a $200K+ pool.

    The native SiriusXM Control4 driver was released today. Requires OS 2.10

    If you google that part number, you should be able to find it quite easily.

    Cool. Look forward to it. I will create an account to be kept in the loop. For Screenlogic, I may be incorrect. But this is the same of the app that runs on iPhone and laptops. But it is based on both Easytouch and Intellitouch. In other terms, there is no standalone Screenlogic. I suspect Sally is referring to Easytouch (as opposed to Intellitouch). And I know one of the main differences between Intelli and Easy is the lack of third party access for Easy while Intelli allows it including with Control4. But by all means, try to see if Pentair would relax that and allow a Control4 driver.

    If you creat a dealer/user account at we will let you know as soon as it is available.

    istreich: I agree, the old serial protocols are old! The new IntelliCenter will be IP and we have integrated pretty much every option available.

    Sally: I have asked our business dev team to reach out to Pentair regarding a driver for the ScreenLogin.

    It would be interesting to see what Intellicenter brings. I agree that right now, ScreenLogic is really all your need. I have connected my Intellitouch i7 to Control4. It is expensive to do for a sub-par experience. Those pool companies are very much behind in terms of software development. They use Serial/9.6 protocols to communicate and the data is very limited. ScreenLogic is "unexpectedly ok" based on old those techs are. I look forward to this new Intellicenter and even more what the driverslab can create for us Control4 users. In the meantime, don't waste your money on trying to interface the legacy Intellitouch with Control4. And if you can't wait for Intellicenter, go the cheaper Easytouch - it is all you need with ScreenLogic. It will save you a lot of money that can be spent with our great remote dealers on this forum!!!

    Wish there was a driver for the Pentair ScreenLogic system. The i9/i10 are over kill for most pools. We went with ScreenLogic since it gives me all the control I need from their app. Would like to have that in my C4 app but I'm not paying $2k for it.
  18. Can you confirm if you are using the single xlr output version of the dmx engine?
  19. How to create Events from an Action?

    Hey @msgreenf, So I created an Action that pulls in Property values - and this works. I'm wondering if you've ever used the C4:AddEvent API. I'm calling C4:AddEvent, and creating events dynamically (not in the XML configuration), but I'm not seeing the events under the Programming/Events tab in Composer after they are allegedly being created. Does the AddEvent function create events that Composer programmers can then use in the Programming tab?
  20. Yes, it was set to 115200. That's what enabled me to read the firmware of the DMX Engine from the v2 driver. However, if I try to send it any commands to control the DMX (eg, All Channels On/Off), nothing happens.
  21. Also i can't confirm the dmx engine will run on a gc flex, i only have an itach and a gc100 in lab and those both work perfect
  22. Have you changed the baudrate of the serial port of the GC through the webpage?
  23. Maybe not now that he owns them. But Sony deconflicted remotes for us before. We had two per room. Worked like a champ. And each TV remote controlled all the attached Sony equipment.
  24. Not a manufacturer issue. His main problem is that they are all in the same room so any line of sight type remote will not be able to control a specific tv/soundbar. So a universal remote/control system that uses ir buds, serial, network control. Will let him specify what does what under all neefed situations.
  25. Have you discussed this with Sony? Assuming the TVs are recent, they should be DIRECTV ready. If you only want 1 remote, then C4 can help you. If they aren't DIRECTV ready, you probably will need Control4. Sometimes it is preferable to have 3 remotes, but that all depends on your situation. The C4 SR-260 remote has 3 unassigned buttons with 1, 2, and 3 dots. A smart programmer/dealer might be able to make those work to "select" each TV.
  26. Yes, but if you're doing C4 or any control, go with RS232, and not IP control.
  27. GC didn't have much to say, they were actually surprised the device isn't working properly. There is something of note with the iTach Flex. Apparently they had a version 1 Flex Serial Cable and a version 2. Version 2 is only certified for 57600 and 115200. He didn't have an exact science to confirming my cable other than to look at it. The RS232 end should have "RS232" in the plastic molding of both sides of the connector. That's how you know you have a version 2. I do have a Version and it still wouldn't work. As soon as I switched over to an HC250, everything worked perfectly. So unfortunately unless Jack has more to add/troubleshoot with the GC, I'm sticking with the HC250. I brought the GC back to my office for future testing if I'm given any other way to diagnose this from Jack.
  28. HDMI matrixes are $$$$$$$. Amps die more frequently than other devices. Combining those is a HORRIBLE idea.
