  1. Adding speakers to system

    I’m living with the disadvantage of the speakerpoints not being able to do advanced audio. They’re minor enough not to warrant an investment in the Triad and you can buy them for less than $100 on eBay. I have one I used once a year for Halloween tunes in the yard.

  2. That’s what I would like. Alexa hooked up to my amp/matrix and at least play the song in a defined room. Not sure if I could tell C4 which room on the fly Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Echo integration

    I've just bought an Echo Dot, and I've linked it with my 4Sight account and can control the lights and volume. I'd like to use it to turn on music and perhaps wake up scenes. Can I do any of that in HE, or do I need a dealer? What does the Epic Driver add that C4 doesn't? I don't have heat or blinds, only music, lighting and video in multi-zones, so I'm not looking for anything over the top. The Dot is going in my daughter's room, where she has a speakerpoint. It's not set to local; can I plug the echo into it and have it play through her speakers? Also, if I bought another one, could I plug it into my amp or HC800 and have it stream through the house? Thanks, Toke
  4. Can you make your own experience buttons with HE? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Simple Home Audio Solution

    I've got a C4 8 zone matrix amp and speakers points and home theatre. None is it is controlled by switches. I use my phone or remotes. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. HC1000 in 2.10 project

    I know that I can't upgrade to 2.10 with a 1000 in the project. However, do you know if I can access it as a network drive and keep my music on it? Seems to be a better use than dumping it on eBay. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. The other year, Theory created a driver for Songza. Unfortunately when Google bought it and changed it to Google Play, the driver quit. Is there a driver out there for Play? I don't mind streaming from my phone via Shairbridge but it's not as integrated as the app was Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Kodi/android box

    Thanks Vince. I'll look at NCIX. I assume neither is loaded with the apps like the one the gentleman was considering. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Kodi/android box

    Let me know what you think of the device. I've been considering one but have no idea what's good or ?
  10. Use Coax cable to extend IR bud?

    How about this: https://www.control4.com/docs/product/zigbee-to-ir-module/data-sheet/english/latest/zigbee-to-ir-module-data-sheet-rev-a.pdf
  11. Ubiquiti edge router VPN

    I'm not quite sure what you're describing. When I use the VPN, there's no difference in how the app looks/functions. Have you set up the phone properly to log in? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. When I woke up this morning, I was unable to control anything via C4 (by remote, button or pad). I was unable to connect via HE as no ip showed. The 800 had power but no other lights. A reboot brought it back online. My question is: what would cause it to go on the blink? We haven't had any power outages Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Schedule TV Time

    Thanks for the suggestions. A Wemo may be the easiest way to go. Similar to the watt box, just control the power. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. I'm looking for a simple way to ensure that the TV's in the house cannot be turned on during the week from 315 to 530. I figure that I can use schedule to set a start and end time, and a variable to set as True/False. The variable will change based on the schedule, but I want someway so I can override if I want to. I'm thinking of a custom button. I figure it'll be something like: When x (Power State) occurs (changes) If variable X is false Turn off the TV (this is IR, so it's dumb and will likely turn on). It also doesnt stop the AVR from turning on My naive question is, what do I pick in the left and right columns to achieve this
  15. 2017 Thoughts for Control4

    I concur with your last statement. However, in my field I know several examples of people buying at the end of a runway (700') and bitching and wanting change. Change is okay if the rationale is sound and supported. Personally, I believe the rationale for Pro to be offered to consumers is sound. Like working on my own brakes, it comes with risks, and based on my comfort I decide what's worth more, my car or the mechanic's bill. However, it's not currently supported by those in control, so I'll stick with HE, a dealer who doesn't screw me over like some on here seem to be ($50 a light or $350 an AVR??), access via this forum to dealers and users who can provide great advise and support, and hope that C4 continues to evolve and improve. Frankly, I want Pro to have access to Detective Suite, so I can see my programming, and the ability to add simple things like a switch or SDDP device. As Ryan says, this issue will come up again and again with the same result. Toke Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
