    LED prewire

    Thanks for the quick reply

    LED prewire

    I need to run some prewire for LED through conduit in a new build. I am planning on putting the controller/power supply in an attic space and then run the low voltage side down the wall and into the conduit to get to a freestanding wall. So, question is what type of wire do I need to go from the LED power to the actual LED strips? Will any basic 4 wire work or do I need the LED wire with the LED attachment ends? Thanks
  3. We are building a new home and I am wiring some items myself. So, quick question on IP security cameras. Do they have to be taken right back to the recorder or can they be anywhere on the network? The reason I ask is that I have a remote location for a couple and it would be easier to run those through a switch rather than go back to the home run. Thanks

    T3 Touchscreen

    Thank you for the quick reply
  5. If we had a T3 touchscreen (tabletop) on a nightstand, can it display the time in large format. Almost like a screen saver? Thank you

    Door Station Questions

    Thank you for all the answers - this was very helpful
  7. I have a few questions about the doorbell stations. First, I see two different door stations (one with a keypad and one without). What is the keypad used for? Second, with the door station can you do the following: 1- when the doorbell is pushed can you play a doorbell sound through ceiling speakers 2- when the doorbell is pushed can you pause active video source on the tv, switch to the ip camera on the tv (say for 15 sec) and then go back to video? If so, how does the ip camera get distributed to the tv? Does the EA-5 push the signal through the HDMI matrix? 3- how do you navigate to the doorbell camera while on a TV? Through the onscreen menu, directly with the remote, other ways? Thank you
  8. We have never used security cameras in the past but would like to add them to a new house build. I'm thinking just bullet ip cams (POE) with some recorder. My real question is where to place them? Attached is a pdf of our site plan - siteplan.pdf. If anyone has suggestions on placement, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
  9. When choosing between the two, is there any difference in functionality? I know the TS has intercom and the iPad does not. Anything else? Just trying to make sure I understand all functionality before deciding which to go with. Also, can they both see video from door station and cameras?
  10. Is this even possible? Is there a way to set up and stream sources from the AV closet wirelessly to an iPad or C4 touchscreen?
  11. Just picking everyone’s thoughts on this. Planning a large new home and trying to see how people name lights in the home. Current house is fairly basic - “master cans” “family room cans” “counter lights” etc. What standard naming have you implemented that works. Thanks in advance.
  12. How can ceiling fans be controlled in Control4's panelized lighting? I don't think the dimmer module works unless you simple use a switch. Any other way to get varying speeds of the fan through the panel? Thank you

    Panelized lighting questions

    Thank you both for the responses. This helps me understand better for certain.
  14. We are planning a new home and trying to understand the panelized lighting. I would like to use dimmer keypads in a number of locations. Then I would like the secondary lighting run back to a room out of the way (so we have less switches). Option 1 I can just drop switches in the out of the way room. Option 2 I can use the panelized lighting. If I go with option 2 what will I need? I know I will need the box/enclosure and I know I will need the 8 channel dimmer (or multiple). Do I need the bus to communicate or is that only for the wired keypads? Do I need cat6 in the box to communicate with the main controllers? What else is needed? Thanks in advance.
  15. In our new home, we will be installing Trane HVAC units that have variable speed, humidity control, etc. What options do I have to integrate this into Control4? I see HouseLogix has a driver for sale, but are there any other options? Thank you
