    Simple Control

    I have had Control4 in my home for over 11 years and have had Simple Control since it was first released as Roomie Remote. Both are great products that I use every day. Cost aside, as I find both very cost-effective, a big benefit of the latter is that Simple Control allows me to make the changes I need to my system configuration to support my relatively frequent additions to and replacements of my home entertainment devices without involving my Control4 dealer and incurring the cost thereof, not to mention allowing me to add my own “drivers” for otherwise unsupported devices. Then again, most would consider my needs atypical. Henry Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Have an Axis Camera?

    I had not heard of this. Thanks!
  3. I have four collocated speaker points with which I am using audio streams sourced over the network, for which I assume the speaker points have some type of built-in decoder. Since it appears that the software on the speaker points is no longer being updated, I am concerned that they are going the way of my mini touch screens. I am considering replacing the speaker points with a Control4 matrix amplifier. If my assumptions regarding the speaker points are correct, do the Control4 matrix amplifiers have built-in decoders for each pair of channels like the speaker points, in which case the matrix amplifier would be a suitable replacement?

    HC800 Audio Input and Speaker Points

    Thanks! Definitely audio-only.
  5. I was hoping it is possible to route analog audio from the RCA jack audio input on my HC800, using the audio encoder in the HC800 (assuming such a thing exists), to speaker points around the house. If so, how would I get that audio input to show up as an available audio source in the various rooms with speaker points? If not, how could I do such a thing?
  6. Here in the U.S., those states that observe daylight savings time came off of it last Sunday. For some reason, the email notifications I receive from my Control4 system indicate that it still thinks it is daylight savings time. For example: From: control4_xxxxxx_yyyyyyyyyyy@alerts.my.control4.com Someone is at the front door. This event happened at : 11/8/2013 9:36 PM PDT Please do not reply to this email. It should, of course, say: From: control4_xxxxxx_yyyyyyyyyyy@alerts.my.control4.com Someone is at the front door. This event happened at : 11/8/2013 9:36 PM PST Please do not reply to this email. Does anyone have any idea how to fix it?
  7. I'm definitely looking forward to the new stuff, especially since it appears that the new 2.3.0 version of the Control4 MyHome iPad app will let me add devices without Composer.
  8. I set it to 2 and now it works! Thanks so much!!!
  9. Composer lets me set "ECP address for 4232CBM module" and "ECP address for 1st keypad Emulation" which are set to 25 and 16 respectively. I am pretty sure that that AUI is enabled.
  10. Which ECP address? The module or the keypad? I have two physical keypads. One is the 6272CVADT TouchCenter Keypad and the other is the older two line LCD keypad (K5418V1/M6925).
  11. I have a Safewatch Pro 3000 with 9.12 firmware and a newly-installed 4232CBM connected to an HC300 running 1.8.2 using the Control4 Certified on 8/19/2011 driver. The settings are: ECP for module: 25 ECP for keypad: 16 Zones: 48 Partitions: 3 Polling: Off AUI: Yes I am able to see the data coming from the 4232CBM just fine, such as panel state and status messages. Attempts to get the zone list suggest that the 4232CBM is not receiving data from the HC300.

Any idea what the problem could be?

    Philips Hue

    I just received a Philips Hue personal wireless lighting starter kit which includes three bulbs and an Ethernet/ZigBee bridge. The bulbs use ZigBee Light Link for control. It'd be nice if I could control them using my Control4 system but there seems to be no mention of Control4 and Philips Hue or Control4 and Light Link anywhere. Philips has not yet released its SDK but when that happens perhaps someone could develop a Control4 driver that uses its API. Even better, perhaps Control4 could implement direct support for ZigBee Light Link and bypass the Philips Ehternet/ZigBee bridge.

    Recommend NAS Box for Control 4

    The Cisco NSS322, NSS224, and NSS326 have been discontinued. See: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/ps4159/ps9954/ps10817/end_of_life_notice_c51-685438.html The Cisco NSS3xx units are actually relabeled QNAP devices with special Cisco firmware. See: http://www.qnap.com/USEng

    Recommend NAS Box for Control 4

    I have been using NETGEAR ReadyNAS units for many years with great results. The recently-announced ReadyNAS Duo v2 looks to be a great entry-level system and is available for under $200 without disks. Aside from standard NAS features, it does a whole lot more. http://www.readynas.com

    WiFi Setup

    Thanks. I am using the hex key that is generated from the password and other devices are able to connect, including a Windows PC, a Mac, and an iPad. To provide more background, There are three WAPs in all, two WAP4400N devices and one WAP4410N, all on different channels. Two of the three are b/g/n using WPA. The third is the one I am using for Control4 as described above.
