  1. You setup the driver for the Epson to have a Macro for power off which would be "off, delay, off
  2. Not true. The HS17 has an Ethernet port of it's own for wired LAN. The C61 4K client boxes use coax. RVU TVs use Coax - Deca - Ehternet Port (you do not appear to be able to do RVU TVs with your own network switch and category cabling, which you could get away with prior Genie) And yes, IP address and Room Name gets you control of clients using existing drivers, with the power off exclusion.
  3. SR-260 With Charger or Not

    That's an interesting realization, I'm going to watch for that.
  4. Luma NVR are compatible with all Onvif cameras, so likely yes, and plus other brands as well.
  5. Articles a little short sighted in my opinion. Why didn't they go zwave? Because Amazon plans to introduce their own lighting and associated products. If they did zwave, they end up providing support for the wild and crazy frontier that is zwave. And any products they introduce probably need to be compatible with other zwave hubs, opening up more tech support calls. Then there's profit. Make a dollar a switch selling their lighting products, vs the cent's they'd make selling third party stuff. Zigbee's a small pond, and they'll be the whale. And when you're looking at the growth potential in the control market, do you really care about alienating the 1% of early adopters, there's no profit in them anyways, they already bought prodcuts. And you already kind of support their hubs anyways. One Alexa per home. Then one Alexa per room. Then 30 switches per home. $$$$$
  6. Luma NVR

    I presume you've changed the default admin password login?
  7. +1 Caseta Pico (makes a great in car lighting remote too)
  8. 1n4003 diode, stripe towards the emitter end on both positive wires.
  9. Summary - EA and T3 are the future. HC and V2 series will do it, but for how long before you want this or that feature they may not be able to support? Also, talk to your dealer about how he feels installing and programming used hardware. Step up now and cut something from your wish list, rather than get it all and be left behind, or having to upgrade sooner than you'd like.
  10. It will work, for a while. That while could be many months, or even years. That while will certainly be shorter than if it's in a cooler area. Are you willing to except that shorter life?
  11. Atmos through Matrix Question

    It's implied that the Oppo can direct connect to the receiver for HDMI without needing the matrix? Don't know if it will play nice, and you may need some EDID bandaid as well, but perhaps an HDMI audio embedder, where you take the analog outputs of the Oppo into the embedder with the 2nd HDMI output of the Oppo, and it replaces the DD HDMI audio stream from the Oppo and that gets output to the matrix for the rest of the house? Found this one, I know there's others out there https://www.amazon.com/Monoprice-BlackbirdTM-HDMI-Audio-Inserter/dp/B01B5FR7PY/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1501078285&sr=8-3&keywords=hdmi+audio+embedder
  12. Outdoor remote options

    Glue a flat magnet to the battery door of the remote. Establish a place inside where the remote is to be put back too, install a window style security sensor (mount under a table, or a recess style, etc,). Have composer check the remote is put back after couple hours, or specific time, play announcement or push notification if it's missing.
  13. Amazon Dash Buttons?

    Where there's a will.... https://www.digikey.com/en/maker/blogs/amazon-dash-hack-connecting-to-your-ifttt-account/f3192a6e7e4a4920b9b7963a33e1d4fd Basically you have to run a server on your home network to listen for and intercept the Dash output.
  14. Samsung Tv IP Drivers!

    Samsung 40MU7000 Yes, needed update. Got it working fine, but the WAKE on LAN to power on was painful, 10-12 seconds. In the end, I stuck an emitter on it, not worth the hassle or potential service calls/explanation. "Yes I know the Sony's in the house respond instantly, start your coffee, the kitchen TV will turn on in a minute...." yeah, no. (Set is hardwired to same switch as Director.)
  15. Controlling Somfy Motors

    Used it with bug screens another dealer had installed, he had already programmed the Somfy remote that has a channel selection on it, one of the channels he had programmed for all three shades as a group. So I programmed this piece to do that group channel and all three work together. Range is the same as a Somfy remote..... (since it is one). As noted, if you also want 'stop', that's another wire and relay.
