    Doorstation DS2

    Hi all, Just have some questions on the DS2 door station. I see it has some relays available. I just wanted to make sure I didnt screw anything up so these relays I can use for a gate motor or lights? Thank you!

    Sound Bars for C4

    Just an experience I have had and maybe can help others. Disclaimer: I don't work for any sound companies I have bought many sound bars before of which they all sitting in my storage right now, mainly because the integration to them is a PITA. Personally I love good audio but am not one of those that must have the purest view on audio. I also don't like the look of those ugly standing speakers like a clean look. So I was researching top of the range sound bars. I came across the Yamaha YSP-5600. It has great reviews and somehow they crammed 40+ speakers into this thing. It works by using beams (Intellibeam is what they call it) around the room for surround sound. Got it yesterday and all I can say is wow. The quality (both build and sound) and how they do this black magic to get the sound around the room is insane. One option I would recommend is to take the bigger sub the SW700 its wireless and is a beast. I was looking for the firmware to update it and came across: this link of its features I should of read this before but I am kind of a impulse buyer It has Alexa integration - for what I really don't know. All the normal music streaming options. But most importantly: The driver works really well! I personally hate IR its just a mind @#@ to get in the right spot etc and if your house worker bumps it or something you always playing pin the donkey.o I have seen a few posts on Sound Bars before so thought I would just post my experience on this one - it has been a great experience to date.

    OpenVPN Configuration - Default Ports Inquiry

    No if your OpenVpn is allowing you to connect and you on your LAN then you have a LAN IP and the C4 box is accessible Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Are the intercoms zig bee repeaters?

    This would really be a great addition! Btw "intercoms" = DS2? Just for clarity

    OpenVPN Configuration - Default Ports Inquiry

    Openvpn uses a default UDP port of 1194. I would suggest though you choose a different port other than the default port. An interesting statistic - within the first hour of a device being connected to the internet it will be probed (attempt to gain access) 6000 times. Which machine on your network is acting as your OpenVpn server? On that machine when setting up the client config you can specify the port to bind on. It will then save that config usually into a .ovpn file which your client i.e. openvpn for android or ios etc will import to setup the client connection agent. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  12. Hi all, Been loving my T3 screens but have a question around the popup messages. What is the best way to build a message with a bunch of variables and show it as a popup with an ok button. It allows for plain text in the message and or one variable? So for example when I say good night - I would really like a message for example: Good night, House status: Garage door - Closed (Variable) Front Door - Closed (Variable) Alarm - Armed (Variable) And so on and on. One way I thought about doing this was having a variable in the system and macro that would build up the message and store it in the variable. Then I would use that variable at "Good night" time and use that variable in the T3 Popup Text. Seems archaic doing it this way so thought I would ask to see if or how anyone else is doing it.

    Netgear Orbi

    This was on very old firmware doesn't apply now. I still highly recommend the Gryphon it's incredible hardware. Blows any other WiFi router away including the SMB offerings. It's also supports mesh.
