  1. When I got home today, I noticed a loud tone through all my Speakers. Once I unplugged my C4 8 Zone Amp v3, the loud tone went away. My setup has a 16 Channel Matrix that takes in all the Inputs from all my Sources. Then the 1st 8 outputs on the Matrix connect to the 8 Channel Amp. Then the amp routes to all the speakers in the room. I have tried disconnecting all the speakers, but no luck after reconnecting them. I have disconnect/connect the power from the Amp (Connected to a Panamax Line Conditioner) many times. I am able to control the front interface, and I am able to ping the device. Has anyone seen this issue before? Does anyone know options to troubleshoot before I have to replace? Thank You in advance
  2. How does a Control4 Partners access this bundle?

    Googleplay integration?

    Are you referring to the Music Service? If so, then today you would have to go through a 3rd party device like Google Chromecast and others.
  4. This setup requires 4Sight. The Epic Driver doesn't require 4sight.

    Cost Effective Motion Sensors

    I am testing the Philips Hue Motion now. They seem to be stable and also offer temperature for the area. I have Nyce also which works well also.

    Security breach concern

    I have similar concerns. I check the "Authorized Devices" tab in my.control4 fairly often to see which devices have connections to my system. I would love to see the 4sight login support Collaboration Services like Gmail, Outlook and Others so I can enable 2FA. At a minimum, allow 2FA for the C4 Accounts.

    Spotify Connect in 2.10

    I have 7 Spotify Connects for all the different Audio Zones today. Some of the Zones have hardcoded presets based on the room Owner (Ex. Son's bedroom has his specific Preset for his Spotify Account). When I am in the Living Room, I select Listen --> Living Room Spotify and I can start my Presets, Wife's presets or the Kids Presets. I can also trigger an auto-start. Additionally I am using the 16-channel Audio Matrix and the 8 Zone (16-Channel) Amp to distribute audio. The only drawback I have seen is that each Controller model is limited to # of simulataneous stream. Example, I think the EA-3 is limited to 3 streams.

    Multiple Controllers

    ZigBee is a meshed based network. I think your concern is having 1 Director. I use Cloud Backups weekly and have a process to failover in the case of Controller outage. It is fairly easy to start Director on a Controller and restore the last backup. Does the Control4 Communications Server provide advanced configuration above the HC or EA Series Controllers? https://www.control4.com/solutions/products/communication-server

    I would keep it before selling at that price. Thanks
  11. I won this Google Home Automation Starter Kit that included all this gear for the exception of the SONOS. All this equipment is brand new in the Box. I kept the Camera and Lock. I am not pressured to sell this equipment, but I don't want this equipment to sit on my shelf.

    C4-16AMP3-B Question

    Probably better to use the 16 zone audio matrix C4-16ZAMSV3-B. It would be interesting to see how you would daisy chain 3 8-zone amps on a single 8 channel matrix switch.
  13. You can delete the recordings under the Amazon Account "Content and Devices"/Alexa.
  14. Yes. I have the Epic Driver. I say "Alexa Play Spotify in Living Room" and she sets the Room Audio Device in the Living Room to Spotify and my Music plays. I have all my Sources connected to my Matrix, and 16-Channel Amp and others with Speakers connected for Audio. For Sources that require D-A conversion, I have two Denon Amp I use for that. The Denon Amps Zone 2 output can perform the conversion. So items like the Xbox or Amazon Fire TV audio is converted and sent to the Matrix for distribution. It sounds like you require Audio output devices and your plans are to use the Dot and other Amazon devices for that. In my cases, I already have Speakers in each zone.
  15. Ok. I have the Matrix and Amp for that. Thx
