    I pretty much eat and sleep automation!
  1. Cisco 9865HD Cable receiver

    Its on the right side above the technicolor or cisco label. A flashlight should indeed reveal the reciever. I just walked a client through relocating it, and I too wish there was a photo online, I will try to post one when I can.
  2. Mix C4 with Lutron Caseta

    No offense, but your building a new house and you want to mix and match wireless technologies? Take a step back and rethink that... I don't care if you choose one infrastructure or the other (although c4 obviously integrates with c4 better, and doesn't have the 30ish device limit...). But on a new build, pick one technology and do it right... just my two cents. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. C4 amp sound quality

    Zector is also great! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. C4 amp sound quality

    The sound quality is also highly dependent on the source. Sonos is 16 BIT, although they have every music service imagineable, Control4 is 24 BIT, but with limited music services. I would recommend that you decide what services you want to use, and if you use "dummy" amps, you will need a matrix. My preference is still: C4-EA Controller, with NAS for local music, Napster, Pandora, and TuneIN. Video-Storm CMX plus NAB, for matrix, airplay(much better airplay than c4 native, tough to set up, but full cover art, volume control, and volume limit options) and additional lms streams (wish we had mini drivers). Additionally the matrix will do time alignment and digital PCM to analog cross conversions, specifically the time alignment is crucial for homes with 2ch zones adjacent to recievers. Clare control dummy amps..(stackable, small, great power) Integra, or Sony ES recievers. Best of luck. Adam Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Inherited System

    Every device you mention here with exception of the HUE, is worthless without a cloud connection... no offense, but as an "IT" guy, why on earth would you drink that kool-aid? Imho, an automated home, is one that will continue to work when the internet is down. Also though, for what it's worth, you could get a dealers help on making your stuff work (well you would want at least an HC250, and ditch the media controller). If you where to wire it all up, remote setup would be a breeze, and management could be done via the home edition software. Best of luck, Adam Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. You guys are the best! Can't wait to try all of this, been busy, but reaching out soon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. EA-5 Wider than HC800

    That's odd, mine fit no issue. You may want to losen the products above and below and get out the pry bar to get those rack rails back to spec? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. In-Wall Subwoofer(s)

    It works great as a retrofit too. The backbox is optional. Basically back box makes it ported. Otherwise it is a sealed solution. Either way, it's the best one out there for in wall. Artisan makes some that come close, but I prefer this one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. In-Wall Subwoofer(s)

    Guys, I have heard almost all of the subwoofers mentioned here. IMHO you have all missed the winner. The only in wall subwoofer I will use aside from my own ones that I build in a similar fashion (opposed woofers, orthogonal to the wall plane) is: Paradigm RVC12! Once you use this, you too won't use anything else. Especially if you can do it with the back-box (pre-construction). Yes Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. It works in 2.9. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. IP Cameras

    Well the hc800 and the hc250 are both on flash navigator, and the ea1 is on android. So the h.264 stream that you are useing is not compliant with flash or the flash version of g-streamer.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. IP Cameras

    The RTSP stream information of the driver is pushed to the intefaces when you refresh navigators. The navigator interface then displays the stream. There is no re-encode done by the controller. So yes the camera will stream the rtsp stream to the ea1 connected to the TV, and no the master controller doesn't send an RTSP stream to the ea1, just the stream info that it needs to go get it itself. Hope this clears things up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Doorbird Experiences

    I agree that c4 needs to improve its announcement speed, but I also don't think they are at full blame here from your discussion, as the announcement created probably has a manually added delay that your integrator for necessary to make the soundbar turn in to that input. So the crux of the problem here is the time it takes to turn your sounbar on and for it to receive sound, which is neither doorbird s or Control4's fault. Your solution is perhaps the best scenario. In my own home I also use my standard bell, which is then followed by a c4 announcement 3-4 seconds later. That 3-4 seconds is something I think control4 can and needs to shorten.

  15. Doorbird Experiences

    I believe the arguments around the native doorbird issues are valid. But the lag time to your sound bar is not a doorbird issue, and should be held against them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
