    Dealer tiers

    Concur with remote programming. There’s some great people on the forum, and you can read the feedback and kudos and know their reputation. Unlike the local shop. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New Home - looking for advice

    I started off the same way as you. I bought new for audio distribution (11 zones)with at the time a Hc300, HC1000, speaker points and C4 amp. I added to the project over a couple of years with used HC200's and a mix of new and used switches (which by the way are more expensive today than 5 years ago), about 27. As I expanded, I replaced the 1000 with a HC800, and the 200's with a new EA1 and a used HC250 ($80 on eBay). This approach has allowed me to keep up with the latest OS, and manage my budget while I upgrade. The only challenge has been the speaker points. They don't allow to update the audio. I didn't do distributed video: I only have 3 TV's. I got rid of a screen, as I use iPad and phones. May not be the best but it works for me. Biggest lesson I learned, find a good dealer (most likely on this forum), support him by not buying everything used, get a good network set up with potential for expansion (extra drops), get HE, and follow this forum: there's some amazing people and recommendations here Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks. I’ll ask my dealer to add Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I've got a couple of Echo's in the house and just had the voice scene and Epic's drivers added. Now I need to figure out what to do with them. Can someone post some of their programming showing what works best for them, so I can learn from their best practices? From what I've seen so far, I'd need to create separate triggers for the following: Family room, Family Room Volume, Family room Apple TV, etc. It also looks like the best way is to have variables set up and put the programming under each variable. Epic's site says, "Ours allows you to connect multiple Echos to your Control4 system, EACH WITH ITS OWN SET OF VOICE COMMANDS..." Does this mean that I need my dealer to add a copy of the driver in each room?
  5. I just bought a Denon AVRX1400H for $399 USD. Haven’t got it yet. Just going in a rec room. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    TuneIn Down?

    Whatever happened, it happened at the same time for lots of people. For me, it was coincidental with Napster not working, requiring the patch. The issue went away with my upgrade to 2.10, which isn’t an option for many. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

      Thanks for the update. Next time maybe

  9. I have a couple of items for sale: two HC200's available. Both are on 2.9.1. SOLD a rack shelf for a HC 250 a wifi speakerpoint (AVG-RAA1-B). This came in the box like brand new; the transformer had some minor damage, and I had to tape the side. I don't know what version it's on, and my dealer was unable to identify remotely. Everything but the stand (which I've kept for another speakerpoint) is included. Give me a reasonable offer. Shipping can be from Canada or US, and will be actual cost Toke

    TuneIn Down?

    Just came back from being away. Tried Napster and got a message on Tate screen' clicked yes and works. TunedIn wasn't working before that and still doesn't. I'm on 2.91. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    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.

  12. 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

    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
