  1. Thanks guys. Our server guy thinks the issue is due to our server size. As such i have just quadrupled our server memory. Let me know if there are any issues. Probably best to contact via the contact us page on our website as i get an email on that rather than checking on forums.

    Cable label machine?

    Back when i used to do installations we used to use the Rhino label maker. Those things were alsome. easiest way to desribe them is heavy duty heat shrink dymo labels.
  3. You can install multiple instances of the driver. All of our drivers are site licences which means you only need a single licence for as many instances in the same system.
  4. The driver will work for all of the IntesisBox models listed in the link and only those models. The IntesisBox models work for a variety of HVAC systems so please make sure your HVAC system is supported by that specific IntesisBox model by looking at the compatibility list or if in doubt contacting the IntesisBox support team or your local distributor. https://www.intesisbox.com/en/wifi/gateways/
  5. These are all the models that our driver support https://www.intesisbox.com/en/wifi/gateways/
  6. IntesisBox can be purchased from any North American distributor https://www.intesisbox.com/en/novelties-intesis-software-announces-its-exciting-new-partnerships-with-north-american-distributors/
  7. IntesisHome products are not compatible with our IntesisBox driver. The only models compatible are listed in the link below. https://www.intesisbox.com/en/wifi/gateways/ You can purchase and install a FJ-RC-WMP-1 product as a replacement for compatibility.
  8. If you don't have Synopsis then it sounds like you're on an old version of the driver.

    Control4 & Sky Q Compatibility

    Only dealers can install drivers. If you are in a hurry i can recommend a remote dealer who can assist.

    TP-Link Chowmain Driver

    Yeah we made a driver for yeelight. https://www.chowmainsoft.com/yeelight-control4 Driver auto discovers bulbs and auto configures itself to hide the modes it doesn't use. Eg white only bulbs hide the color and temperatures, temperature only ones hide color, etc. Full two way feedback with instantaneous response, self healing, etc. Made it stupidly cheap as well so it'll be a no brainer to invest in the driver (way cheaper than buying a philips hue bridge + bulbs even with the driver licence!)

    TP-Link Chowmain Driver

    Yeelight have an open API which is why we can do so much with it in comparison to other products. It is 240v and 110v so please make sure you purchase the right one. They have strips, bulbs, lamps and ceiling lights. I personally have a RGB strip, RGBW bulb and mono bulb. All dimmable. Bulbs prices start at just above $10 USD https://www.aliexpress.com/item/100-Original-Xiaomi-Mi-Smart-LED-Bulb-Yeelight-Wifi-Remote-Control-Adjustable-Brightness-Eyecare-Light-Smart/32736219908.html?src=google&albslr=221710193&isdl=y&aff_short_key=UneMJZVf&source={ifdyn:dyn}{ifpla:pla}{ifdbm:DBM&albch=DID}&src=google&albch=shopping&acnt=494-037-6276&isdl=y&albcp=1001731409&albag=50593269078&slnk=&trgt=304655778945&plac=&crea=en32736219908&netw=g&device=c&mtctp=&aff_platform=google&gclid=CjwKCAjwspHaBRBFEiwA0eM3kQSRTqxKCXCXzIA7UWicyI7IlhQQIyjhmNBFXTuTSH5YapAY1XOM5BoC42kQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

    TP-Link Chowmain Driver

    I couldn't see a method of accessing the scenes. If you want something that does color fades and that sort of stuff you should check out Yeelight. You can do some pretty impressive stuff using that hardware + its stupidly cheap.

    TP-Link Chowmain Driver

    Like any device in Control4 you can hide the TP-Link devices in Navigator and utilise programming in the background. Note that the strobe effect you want has to be programmed in manually via a macro if you want it to change between two colors indefinately until cancelled. If you do not have Composer Home Edition or are comfortable with creating programming macros i suggest contacting your dealer to get them to do this for you.

    Control4 & Sky Q Compatibility

    As Gary mentions our driver will control your SkyQ box. You will need to connect your SkyQ box upto the Blustream box and Control4 will tell Blustream where to send the signal. Your profressional installer will do all of this so no need to worry. Here is an example of what the user interface will look like once its installed.
  15. Hi guys, Thanks for advising. Should be good now. Let me know otherwise.
