    Hunter Douglas tracks

    Anyone know if The Shade Store motorized tracks work with Control4? They have a Wifi point you add to control from your phone (bottom of link below) https://www.theshadestore.com/collections/motorized-window-treatments?msclkid=57147a0085bf12f1c067216cde0811e3&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Motorized - Showroom - DT&utm_term=lutron drapes&utm_content=General - Exact

    Hunter Douglas tracks

    I should have provided more detail, these are for drapes (not rollers or blinds): I need two 14 foot tracks. The will mount on the ceiling and need 2 tracks each. These are for curtains (not rollers or blinds) Is there a model of tracks I should order that has built in what is needed to communicate with C4, or what track would I buy, and what add on is needed to communicate to C4? Or if they don't have a good option what is a reasnolbile other brand to go with?

  5. Yes, each room would have at least 4 different loads. So I would love the panelized solution so I don’t have to see all the light switches Any idea how much the 8 channel dimmer unit goes for from contrl4?
  6. I'm in the US....I guess my question is really about break even point on the adaptive dimmers verse going with the solution at a sub electrical panal (as I have to put in a new one anyway, and will be running all new wires) Thanks
  7. Hi, We are soon ripping off the entire upstairs of our house and rebuilding from scratch for better layout. Based on this we will be having a new sub panel upstairs. I will have 16 loads to control upstairs, I was thinking of just buying 16 adaptive dimmers, but was wondering if going with two 8 channel dimmers at the panel would be better. I know it would look way better as I would just have 7 keypads (one in each room) that would control all the lighting and not have all the dimmer switches visible. But wondering on pricing.... Buy 7 keypads (the ones that can also control 1 load) and then 9 adaptive dimmers (maybe just hide the adaptive dimmers in the closet as I would control from keypad), or just go with the 7 keypads and the two 8 channel dimmers at panel. I was not sure at what point is the break even solution between the 2 options? As construction gets closer I'll for sure have dealer out to give their take, but was wondering if anyone had any early information I could consider before meeting with them? Thanks Dave

    Napster down with Control4?

    I rebooted my control 4 audio matrix and now everything works
  9. Hi, In control4 if I pick napster to turn on music, it seems like everything is working on my touch panel but it won't actually turn on my amps and play. If I pick any other music source through the touch panel it will turn on amps and play music. Anyone else having this issue? thanks Dave

    Brilliant Smart Lighting - Alexa Built In

    Just sent the company a link to this thread, and that Control4 users would be interested in learning more and if they have contacted Control4 about making a driver or anything?

    Brilliant Smart Lighting - Alexa Built In

    This is Brilliant! I love the look and how they fit into your current boxes and have the screen with video room to room and alexa built in....and their prices are insanely cheap based on what it does. Control4 should buy them or partner with them (or other way around)!!!

    Echo Dot Driver`

    Oh wow, well this seems to be the answer then: Put a dot into your audio source for your control4 (for me that is my control4 Matrix) Have your dealer add the code for "Turn on Dot' which tells the dot you tell that to in a room to do it's audio out through the dot that is hooked into your audio source Have your Matrix listen for a audio signal on the Matrix and play in a default room (mine would be the kitchen) Then your dot in your kitchen actually does audio through the dot in another room that is hooked up to your control4 matrix and plays through speakers in room (not dot) Do I understand this correctly?

    Echo Dot Driver`

    My dealer said he could add through the driver a command called "Turn on Dot"....When I tell the Dot in my Kitchen to "Turn on Dot" it would make that kitchen audio go through my dot in my downstairs closet that is wired into my Control4 Matrix to do the audio from the kitchen dot through the dot in the audio room going into my matrix. I'm guessing though if this was the case everyone here would know that and be using it......Is my dealer wrong here (I have not had them do the programming yet)? Thanks Dave

    Control4 announces Amazon Echo integration

    I don't have Cat6 to my location, would something like this work as an alternative: Hi, I have my Alexa set up and love the light and voice controls, but I really want to use Alexa feature with Amazon prime to talk to her and play anything I want and have it come over control4 speakers. Is this possible with something like: Hook something like the Belkin SongStream Bluetooth HD Music Reciever up to an input on my Control4 Matrix switch. Pair my Amazon puck with that Bluetooth receiver. Program Control4 so whenever it senses a single on that position on the Control4 Matrix to turn on my speakers on the first floor.
