    2.10.5 Release

    eh, an update to the dimmer module, relay module, and the gateway, more reliable, blah, blah, blah. I would have really like to see a Fan speed controller module. Now that would have been great! I have to install 5 or 6 fan speed controllers near the penalized lighting to control all the fans, seems like a no brainer! They could have made it half din and controller 4 fans, just add more for more fans.
  2. C4 does an average job of camera integration. The native blue iris app for my cameras is much better than the C4 app. The C4 camera refresh is the biggest issue for me, so slow! The only reason I integrate my cameras with C4 is for the still shot screen flip on the T3s, other than that, I use the blue iris app.
  3. Yes, those are the loose plastic coating. Most of the day they are exposed to direct AZ sunlight.
  4. Here is what the water proof wrapped ones look like after 2 years, compared to the silicone after 3 years, granted the silicone ones are a year older, but they still look new.
  5. Anyone know of a driver for the My Observer Thermostats?
  6. Thanks! They are all in motion with a pixel controller. I started with the ones you use and mine only lasted a few months in the sun and water, when it did rain here. But these ones in the silicone jacket are spot on!
  7. Yea, I know what you mean, I had to custom cut mine as well but reused the connectors to connect them together.
  8. I use these, except I went with pixels, instead of dumb RGB on my pool fence, but the same outer shield, they won't discolor or get water in them. The come with water proof connections and you can order pigtails for them as well. I have these permanently installed in my backyard for the past 2 years in Arizona without issue. Here is a picture of random colors around my pool and wall. http://www.holidaycoro.com/RGB-LED-Strip-12v-30-LEDs-per-Meter-Waterproof-p/59-wp.htm
  9. I can't seem to get pushsafer to work at all. I registered and entered the Private key but I can't get it to send a notification. I tested it with and email with my Privatekey@pushsafer.com and that works no problem. Here is what I am trying:
  10. @Dave w I have something similar in my backyard with lots of LEDs in pool and around pool, I even have several thousand pixels. The first thing I did was get it off of the pool controller and onto its own power supply, DMX engine (Engineering solutions box and C4 driver), and LED driver the PX24500. The DMX engine connects C4 to the LED drivers so you can control them. You would need to get a big enough power supply or multiple to handle all the LEDs you are running. You would also need to get enough PX24500 to handle the load of all your LEDs, might need one per light depending on your lights. You can address all the PX24500 to the same DMX channels if you want and it would act as one light or you can have each light on its own channel and control each light individually, thats what I did. I used sprinkler timer wire to each of my LEDs and it works great! This isn't for the faint of heart, but it is super cool when you have a light show with your landscape lights or even set a different mood based on the color you choose.
  11. @jackstonehas some nice RGBWW spot lights, they work very well!!
  12. @jackstone I need a bunch more landscape lights, sent you a PM.

    Front Porch Light

    sounds like you might be re-tripping your camera motion sensor when the lights go back down to 50%, then they ramp back to 100% because the camera detected motion. Just a thought. You could add another timer that is 5 minutes and 10 seconds to start when it detects motion, once the 5 minute timer expires and the camera detects motion, if the 2nd timer is running, do nothing. Hope this helps.

    Control4 Dimmers versus Lutron

    100% agree! Way better fit and finish, by far!

    SR250 Repair

    Running the batteries dead will sometime corrupt the old 250s, have two that have done that.
