  1. I assume he means changing the system with 'update' in this case - and yes that requires a dealer.
  2. And is required for Control4's own Alexa driver, and I think is still needed to use Apple Watch.
  3. Could still use the old driver, just put a fake 2in 1 out switch in front of one input - that said, not stating you couldn't or shouldn't create a new driver.
  4. ^ And to clarify - the dongle is not the only option, there are additional options available for ZWave using 3rd party hardware.
  5. 1) The license can go two ways, depending on how old the system really is. If it's pre-change, the license is on the customer.control4 account. These are not transferable, but the account is (and the account primarily just deals with licenses). If post-change the licenses are directly tied to the controller itself, whatever account the controller gets registered on gets the license. 2) ComposerPro - available only to dealers 3) See above - there is a paid user edition that allows you program a lot of functions, but will not give you much room to cinfigure/setup the base system. 4) Not natively - but integration options are available.
  6. the STOP discussed here is under 'Programming Control'
  7. No, no real gui for receiver is available. You'd have to re-create using a different proxy such as DVD or cable box I made that old driver - originally for the XD series - and I know their site hosts the 'dvd proxy' companion driver. Using that driver and an IR connection, you can bind it to an unused input and select it and have control over the functions.
  8. Depends on the enclosure - you can do this in some boxes/enclosures assuming it's GFCI protected (via the breaker for example)
  9. Which doesn't cover all of it. OP: Basically view C4's conditionals as a read script being triggered in order as each line is read. Example of if/ifnot or if/else: WHEN button is pushed IF light is on do this and this stop do such and such note that alternatively you can do: IF light is on do this and this IF light is off do such and such Provided you aren't turning that very light on and off that is! Example of if/andif: WHEN button is pushed IF light is on IF door is open do this and that Note the multi layer nested IF statements Important to note is that the system will continue a script to the end unless told otherwise, as hinted in the first code section. This can be important: WHEN button is pushed IF light is on turn that light off IF light is off turn that light on This piece of coding will ALWAYS leave the light on as the system 'reads' and executes line by line. So: WHEN button is pushed IF light is on {system checks - yup the light is on, so it knows to read the nested line} turn that light off {executes this immediately} IF light is off {well yeah, it will ALWAYS be off - even if it wasn't before, the system just turned it off!} turn that light on {end result, light will never turn off with that button - but it sure will turn on!} To prevent that from happening there is the STOP command which ends the reading of the current script: WHEN button is pushed IF light is on turn that light off STOP {this then prevents the system from reading any of the script below - so take care here that additional programming is not also stopped} IF light is off turn that light on Select radio station in the room {ie if you want to have it start music any time the button is pushed - it now will not do it if the light was on, you'd move this line ABOVE the first IF statement instead} Note that as mentioned before, technically the "if not" conditional is redundant so can be skipped Of course, it's even easier to just program the button to just toggle the light - the above example is just for simple demonstration purposes Lastly, if/elseif is simply a matter of having multiple IF statements with or without stop commands Should conditionals be mutually exclusive: WHEN button is pushed IF current device is cable box whatever you want IF current device is AppleTV whatever you want IF current device is BLu-Ray you get the point In case of possible overlapping IF statements and having a priority: WHEN button is pushed IF the cable box is on Do this stop IF the bluray is on {in other words, if the cable box is NOT on but the Bluray is) Do something else stop IF the TV is on Yet another thing to do....
  10. I'm assuming this will be a paid driver (considering it seems like HD just paid to have an update done to the 'official' driver, though nothing so extensive as what this driver promises to do)
  11. Not really - I wouldnt suggest it for higher bandwidth items like movies etc due to it choking the network connection, but some music is no problem.
  12. That's his point - the usb drive IS accessible as a basic network drive to other devices.
  13. Yep - 2nd time he received that advice too - now if he did indeed do have it unchecked, it's a different situation, but until you do....well you've agreed to be receiving those emails.
  14. ^ Ability to work on flash will vary by camera mind you - ie it needs to be able to do MJPEG on the sub-stream. Most HIKs do, but some (especially OEM models) may not have the ability. One other thing to note is that HIKVision only allows ONE MJPEG connection at a time - this can create some situations where you're trying to use one (flash) based screen after another as well as more than one at the same time (need to wait until time-out before next screen will connect).
