  1. 15 year old company vs the unproven, new guy trying to establish itself in a competitive IoT world. I presume their interface is going through the internet cloud, vs direct with Control4.
  2. Frame comparison is also where systems do analytics. Well if its sporadic pixels that changes across the image, then it's likely tree shadow movement or rain or such. Where as this whole quadrant of pixels changed and moved from left to right and it's shaped like a body, that gets recognized as a person. Agree with add another drive, know that not all hard drives are created equal, simplified, some are designed for NVRs for more writing than reading (WD Purple), where a NAS drive may be more reading than writing (WD Red). (Most 'motion sensors' are watching for heat based changes.)

    RS-232 PIn Options

    These are great too, custom length, easy null when needed, etc. Male and Female versions available. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07543YWMS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  4. Speculated industry average is 2GB per hour for high quality video streaming = 20 hours a day per month to reach 1TB.

    FYI - mechanical switches are $60 for a 10 pack, $6 retail each. (US)
  6. Most towns offer electronics recycling drop off. Best Buy also does recycling, they limit to 50" for flats and under 32" for tubes. Many items are free, others $25, check their site for specifics. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/clp/recycling/pcmcat149900050025.c?id=pcmcat149900050025
  7. RAV: what buttons did you use to activate in the various rooms? Dedicated button on keypad dimmer in bathrooms.
  8. Did one as mentioned, pluged into a C4 outlet or use a C4 light switch on the outlet the pump is plugged into. We setup timers for morning and homecoming. Then buttons to activate when needed on demand. Also since it was a weekend home, tied into the home/away modes, selecting Home also activated pump. And away stopped the timers.
  9. Roll Dog, For client IP Control - use the IP address of the Genie 2 (make a router reservation, DirecTVs are known to be forgetful of static settings) and input the EXACT room name of the client box. Caveats - no IP power control of clients, and no client side 'setup menu' navigation, for that you would still need IR.
  10. Just use a toslink to digital coax converter and use your coax cable, about $20.
  11. The 6700 Sony works great with the 'Free' database driver.

    12V Trigger Question

    There's an 8 zone amplifier driver in composer, designed for the Control4 108 amp, but can be used with others as well. It provides audio line inputs, endpoints, a contact and a trigger connections. Make your bindings, and amp will be powered as needed. 4 amps: 4 instances of driver, 4 relay connections to controller.
  13. Consider a hybrid. Zigbee keypads per room controlling the main room fixture. Accent, relay, outdoor lighting on panelized. Local fallback, great mesh, clean, cost effective.
  14. (if for lamps, there's the Axxess on cord zigbee dimmer, available through Blackwire)

    Garage door sensor

    Nyce has a tilt zigbee sensor, if you only need to know state.
