    Delete Please.

    You know the one. The Pink Zigbee network card in case your door lock needs one. Make me an offer. Edit: Meant to put this in the FS section. Can one of the mods move this for me?
  3. I updated your driver to the most current version dated 9/21/18. Let me know if that doesn't take care of it.
  4. If you're going the video over IP route, spend the extra $ and go with JAP or Videostorm.

    Bids on remote programming

    Dahua may be a large OEM, but if they have no interest in making the driver, Control4 likely may not make one. 3rd party driver creators fill this void, but at a cost. As far as who is honest/reputable/fair etc, look at the feedback on the "looking for a integrator" section. That'll be a good indicator of who's experienced, and reputable here. The forums tend to police themselves, so there aren't many if any "hacks" on the forums who do shoddy work. The ones that I know of and have actually dealt with professionally: Neil12011: Myself of course Ak1 Matt Lowe Ari (choppeddog) -Driver creator also Msgreenf (Greenfield Solutions)- Driver creator also

    Would you do it all over again?

    I do this for a living, so maybe I'm biased. But, I've had C4 in every place I've lived since 2006. My system HAS to work, because I live with it, and so does my family. I approach customers systems this way as well. There is no "works most of the time" scenarios for me. So yeah, I know I would do it again, because I have. If I didn't believe in the product or concept, I certainly wouldn't bet my professional life on it.
  8. This is about the only way. It USED to be quite easy, and with Alan's advanced announcement driver, was pretty powerful. This was how my announcements fired in various rooms. This was before the "endorsed" sonos driver crept in however.

    Anthem MRX 720 locking up

    If at all possible, and usually is, I always go with an RS-232 connection with receivers, no matter how robust the manufacturer, Control4, or other dealers say their IP control is or isn't. Serial is usually bulletproof.

    control4 amp

    The lightning symbol means the channels are shorted. It can also mean literal lightning. We had a house get struck and all but two of the channels were burned right through on the board. I took it apart for the insurance company and you could see the burn marks. Check your wires to make sure none are touching, simple stuff first.
  11. "Usually", it means director doesn't know what state the contact is in. We've seen it before on garage door contacts where the battery died. Toggling the state of the device usually clears it. In this case, probably re connecting the bindings would clear it. We'd usually map that kind of thing to a generic motion as opposed to a door, but you get the gist.
  12. For what it's worth, I've done one of the IR/USB modules, and they do work well. Setup is very quick, and yeah, it kind of sucks to spend the extra money to control something you already had control over, but it does work well.

    T3 Failure Rate

    We've had a few go bad. My personal 7" portable, which was seldom used went bad. Most have been the 10" variety, all portable.

    WTB- looking for a 4k Matrix

    We're almost always going with Just Add Power now. It's scale-able, meaning you can do odd setups like a 4x10, or 8x4 or whatever. It's worth the extra cost. Switching is instant and so many more features built in.
