  1. New Driver: Garage Agent

    Unfortunately no. Control4 does not allow this currently. Thanks!
  2. New Driver: Garage Agent

    It provides left open timers, auto snooze timers, failed to close alerts, extra when/then events and other features that don't exist in that one. It is also super simple to setup and integrate.
  3. New Driver: Garage Agent

    It should work with the wink driver. The 'install' of the driver is just bind the contact and relay to whatever does those functions. As long as the wink or any 3rd party interface provides these connections, then yep it will work. I'm guessing all of them do since that's how the standard garage proxy connects. The driver is a 'better garage proxy'. It's based on the way we install Control4 systems for our clients and all the things they request us to do in programming which are tedious and error prone. Let us know how you like it or 'extras' for these. Thanks! Cinegration Driver Team
  4. Cinegration is proud to release the next driver: Garage Agent! The garage agent was designed to enhance the customer experience when integrating garage doors. By using an experience button Cinegration was able to give customers a dynamically controlled garage door control that includes: Moving Up/Down icons Alert Icon + popup on all control4 touchscreens + TV interfaces Automatic garage left open alert Ability to 'snooze' the alerts (example: working out in the garage and do not want to get notified that it's open, just double click on the garage agent and you're done!) Failed to Close alert Ability to lock or disable the control of the garage door (example: AirBnB homes) Garage door icon can be located in: Watch, Listen, Security or Comfort on any screen! History Agent Support Works with existing Garage door integrations (MyQ, standard contact/relay) Driver DatasheetTo Purchase or Read More FAQ: Does it work with MyQ Garage Doors? Yes, it works WITH the MyQ driver, it does not replace the MyQ driver Do I need to put the standard garage motor into the Control4 project? No, this driver provides all the same control and more! What garages does it work on? Any garage door that can work with Control4, this driver can enhance the experience Do I need to redo all my existing programming if I add this driver in? No, the driver can be used in addition or standalone with existing installations Can I try out the driver? Yes, all Cinegration drivers come with a 7 day trial I use DriverCentral's Showroom Project, does this driver work with that? Yes, this driver is compatible with the DriverCentral Showroom License/Project
  5. New Driver: Battery Agent

    Hi, Some devices (Axxess and Kwikset) do not report 'level' to the Control4 system. They only 'report' when they've reached a low level. Thus, the current 'level' is N/A or not applicable. The next release we will change N/A to be OK. Thanks! Cinegration Driver Team
  6. New Driver: Battery Agent

    Also, driver is compatible with 2.9.1. Made sure of that as many customers won't be able to go to 2.10 without hardware updates.
  7. New Driver: Battery Agent

    HC250, HC800, T2, T3 touchscreens do the popup. iPhones... no, you can't do a 'popup' on those. I'm looking to see if we can use the Push Notification for these, but didn't get it into this release. The 'icon' will show on the iphone. ~
  8. New Driver: Battery Agent

    The way the Sr260's works with batteries is: When you 'request' from either ComposerPro (by clicking on the driver in system design then waking it up), or from the remote itself (list, settings, config, battery levels), the 'level' will be sent to director. Director then informs our driver of the current level. We simply subscribe to this variable so unfortunately, that's as good as we can get it with the sr devices. It's a limitation on the hardware side as they don't 'transmit' their battery level when woken up. They 'could' but that would be up to C4 to do that. Thanks!
  9. New Driver: Battery Agent

    Major Update to driver (Version 1010)! This is a must have driver for any home with battery devices. Never wonder if your QMotion or Yale doorlocks have enough charge before leaving on a trip. Simple on screen display. :: Added Experience Button to GUI. Customer now has an icon on all their Control4 UI's that will let you know if there is a low battery present. :: Added More drivers to be monitored. :: Added Current Battery State request. Want to see the current status of ALL your battery devices right now? From either the Control4 TV GUI or Touchscreen, just press the battery icon. A report containing the current states will pop up. :: Updated Auto Setup. When driver is first installed, driver will automatically find all devices it can monitor and setup GUI notifications automatically. Because a proxy was added, you must delete the old driver and install this one in place. Auto Update will NOT work for this update.

  10. Houselogix supporting 3rd party drivers?

    Being a Control4 dealer (Diamond Level) and developing drivers since 2009 I wanted to put my 2 cents in. The main thing I've seen over the past 8 years, is products and solutions adapting to make the smart home experience better. I see Platform providers (Control4, Savant, Crestron) continually upgrading their user experience. This in turn requires the other manufactures to modify their approach at the solution. Both companies want to provide the best experience for their customers and this is where development companies come in. What a specialized development company brings to both parties is knowledge and speed. Knowledge in what each platform is doing, the benefits of the new user experiences they are bringing and the skills to make the new interfaces link with a manufactures particular hardware. Developers also bring speed. Companies have many layers of management and corporate goals. What a development company like Cinegration, Domosapiens or Chowmain brings is the ability to get an actual software product created, developed and distributed without the overhead and time it takes a typical company. What development companies have been missing has been a complete developer and dealer driver management system like DriverCentral. DriverCentral is it's own company (Not a development company or subject to similar fates like previous marketplaces). It was developed specifically to provide a vast array of tools both to the dealer and to the developer so each side can get to work on what they do best. Being a Control4 dealer and Developer gave us a unique insight into the issues and long term repercussions of smart software. The single biggest thing we saw was the 'marketplace' should not be controlled by a development company. Support. There is an understated assumption that support is always available. It's not, and good people and great support are hard to find. Since most of us development companies are only a handful of people (it's three of us at Cinegration for example), answering the 45-60 help desk tickets that come in is almost impossible. We subsidised this by selling our software through DriverCentral and using their help desk system. They have a full time tech support person on staff that is Control4 certified for the sole purpose of helping our dealers. Existing licenses. Development companies change distribution channels. That happens as new marketplaces with better tools and features come out. DriverCentral created an importation tool that allows them to upload any existing marketplace license table into theirs and give dealers the ability to manage those drivers on their customers systems. Do you need to have your stuff moved over? No. Should you, do you still have an iPhone 4? Future. We at Cinegration always want to provide the best solution for the hardware and software we can. To make that possible, new tools and systems had to be created. DriverCentral is just another way to move the customer experience into the future. Change sucks... and without it nothing exciting would ever happen. The key is making sure it goes as smoothly as possible and we feel DriverCentral can provide that to our customers both now, and 4 or 8 or 10 years from now.

    On the 260 issue, we've found that the Control4 does not transmit the % correctly to director. The driver simply 'receives' the level from director then processes. If we get incorrect data, we process incorrect data. From testing we found that the 260's do not transmit their 'correct' % until you click on the driver in composer and wake up the remote. This 'forces' the remote and director to re-sync. We're testing some options as to how we can work around this. Are your units battery or charger based? All the other items (locks, shades, ca devices etc...) all correctly do what they are supposed to do from our testing. It's just the SR remotes that we've seen this issue. Thanks!
  12. New Driver: Battery Agent

    Hi! Sorry about the late responses. We are moving all our drivers to driverCentral.io tomorrow. this has already been installed in the new release. We'll send out an official press release tomorrow. Thanks!
  13. New Driver: Battery Agent

    We use Control4's email notification in our driver. We do not offer a smtp server/push notification on this driver. In order for the driver to 'notify you' you would need to purchase 4Sight. This also gives you access to Alexa and other emails + remote login. the driver handles all the notifications automatically, just need to pay for the email service and it will work. Thanks!
  14. DoorBird Integration Driver Now available!

    I think you can. The 'tab' that is removed in HE is Connections and that's not used in this situation. Note: my explanation only explains how to change the video feed. Remember that you will also need to create an intercom group (put two touchscreens in it), assign that intercom group to the doorbird and Re-enable SIP (which sets all the settings you just changed). All of this you should be able to do with composerHome. Note: we only offer support to dealers but if you're computer savvy and like reading you should be fine. The driver download has pdfs and documentation that explain these areas. Thanks and have a great weekend!
  15. DoorBird Integration Driver Now available!

    There was a recent doorbird firmware that changed a security validation. We released an update the next day with the update and if you have auto-update, no further action is required. Thanks!
