    Amana ComfortNet

    Or you don't know much about the HVAC industry... Daikin, the mother ship of Amana/Goodman, is one of the largest producers of hvac systems in the world. Estimates are that 40% of all U.S. residential hvac systems are produced by Daikin/Goodman/Amana. Amana currently offers the industries best furnace and the only one with a lifetime warranty on its heat exchanger, which if it goes out they replace the entire furnace not just the exchanger.

    Amana ComfortNet

    Nothing at all? The Amana/Goodman/Diken thermostat is basically a Honeywell Prestige IOQ programmed to work with Amana. It is RedLINK capable. I know there are RedLINK drivers just don’t know if the will work with Goodman/Amana. This is a fairly popular and one of the top brands for residential hvac. Has to be some Solution available.

  3. Triad Slim Subs and amps are fantastic and the color matched grills are a huge bonus. Episode are cheaper but don’t like them as much as the triads. None of them aren’t in-room subs so don’t expect that, unless you want to spend around 5k for a JL Audio in wall set-up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. Having an Amana AMVM97 Modulating, Variable-Speed ECM Gas Furnace installed in a week or so. This unfortunately means I’ll need to ditch the Ecobee as it doesn’t support modulating variable speed setups. Anyone have an Amana ComfortNet thermostat integrated? Ultimately it’s not a big deal but the wife like as much in C4 as possible, she likes one interface. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Apple TV

    The Crestron remote blows the 260 away... I prefer voice remotes over something like an alexa or google home, I find they work far better and more reliably.
  6. And I've had one die at my house... Agreed those are the last to fail though, I've had 2 hc800's fail on me though.
  7. If any one of our devices break, especially a controller then we would be SOL just like if Sonos turned off their service. Control4 closes your stuff works for a relatively short period before it fails. So the loss isn't immediate, but its fairly rapid. Also without development or improvement how long are you going to keep a system which no longer is supported at all or in any way? There is also a perceived loss... If I lose my Sonos I'm out maybe $1500 at the very high end. If I lost Control4? Control4 from this standpoint is the bigger risk, not Sonos. Either way they both look stable at this point, thankfully because I love them both!
  8. Those financials really aren't that bad, indeed they are down but not so much that I'm worried. I was more worried when C4 stocks dipped into the single digits.

    Naperville Area

    Any dealers in the greater Naperville area active on this forum? Have a few projects I'd like to get done and would love to work with someone on this forum if there are any. Thanks
  10. I've also used HUGE bandwidth because of the way they work. It's amazing how much bandwidth gets used when your chromecast continues to stream music after you've left and didn't stop the stream.

    IOS App

    AND with everything TECH always try a reboot... Problem solved though it would have been nice to know what went wrong

    OK, even crazier now! A dealer was able to remote into my system, no idea why app won't finish connecting

    IOS App

    I’ve tried this but tried again: 1) deleted location from app, logged back in, app finds my system and then stalls trying to connect. Same behavior as previously described 2). Deleted location, then app. Reinstalled and then same as above. I feel it’s one of two things: 1) something at the router level is blocking traffic from CONTROL4 which is why I want to figure out where the traffic comes from so I can try and trouble shoot this. OR 2) something with my HC800 is not allowing remote connections. These have to be the most logical as nothing will connect not any of our phones or directly from My.control4.com. I would love to see if a dealer is able to remote in but I’m guessing they won’t be able to because I’m guess all traffic comes from the same C4 server. I’m starting to believe it’s #2 as nothing else is blocked, all other remote connections to things like Wemo, Hue, Myq, Nest, Cameras all work. I can also VPN into my network. This brings me back to an issue with my HC800 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    IOS App

    Any idea what the traffic looks like coming in? Nothing C4 related works remotely, iOS apps or trying to connect from my.control4.com. Just stalls, no error or other messages. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
