  1. Similar to Nuimo with more sensors but not as refined looking. Still interesting. http://www.geeky-gadgets.com/espruino-puck-js-low-energy-bluetooth-smart-button-16-01-2017/ We really need a Bluetooth bridge for C4 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Ha... thought it was dead and the Amcrest driver is working awesome so I sold my UniFi camera and NVR. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. OvrC Home still requires you to upgrade to Pro. So VPN and experience button is still best option Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Anyone play with one of these yet? https://www.senic.com/en/index.html
  5. Switching thermostats does not guarantee your issue will be corrected in fact it most likely it will continue. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Unless your a dealer you can not get a standard OvrC account, you'll need ovrc pro. OvrC Pro isn't cheap, though the initial purchase includes a 2 year subscription. After that there is a yearly fee. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I would really spend some time with Tech Support, they are really good about this and will spend as much time as it takes. You can also try the Ecobee fourms - http://www.smarthomehub.net/forums/categories/ecobee Lots of end users and pros on there. Between the two you should be able to get it sorted out.
  8.  saw one of your posts about keypad programming. I have 2-3 button keypads in my house and Im trying to figure out in the programming, I cant remember if there is a way to program one of the buttons on the keypad to control the local light load that is wired into it. I have 2 buttons programmed on the keypad for other things but wanted to see if I can make one of the buttons control the light or do i need a switch to be connected to the light to control it?

     

    "I've also got two keypads in the kitchen, one is a three button that does three scenes, and the other does some local lighting, a media scene, and volume. This one is a mix-mosh and still not happy with it either."

  9. Not gonna lie, home technology is really heating up. Companies are starting to create some really cool tech! http://www.digitaltrends.com/home/soraa-helia/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. They made and are making quality equipment for sure. This isn't the Smart SI, it was made before the SI came out and really was intended for more of a commercial install. It can do a bunch of extra sensors that the SI and or EcoBee 3 can't do. Only reason I'm getting rid of it is because I went to the EcoBee 3 to get the remote sensors.
  11. Everything in working order, need to clean up, make an offer HC-300: HC-200 with rack mount: Popbox V8 media player Netgear JGS516: Ecobee EB-STAT-02 : Sony Playstation 3 (80 gb - Piano Black) cechl01, power cord, bluray remote : $75 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Phil were you ever able to look at using FamilyShare?
  13. Trust me I take no offense, every reply I just chuckle. I also like this conversation and think it will be helpful for others down the line. Often times conversations tend to be you saying something is the best option and they the conversation ends. You doesn't actually me you, just means someone of your standing in the community. Inevitably someone reads the conversation and wonders why its the best and what are the other options, what are the pro's and con's of each of those options. A full back and forth exposes those, in my opinion. I also have no issue or objection to doing it the way you have described but it is important for someone integrating a newer LiftMaster or Chamberlain to understand that doing it your way may be a bit more work for their dealer because somewhere they are going to have to do solder work, if thats in their capabilities. They will also need to make sure that the door opener that gets soldered is located someplace that is easy to access so they can occasionally change the battery. What should we talk about next?
  14. We could go back and forth on this to no avail. My point is that IF I'm home there are few reasons I need C4 control of my garage door, its when I'm away that its most important. I want to be able to open my door for someone if need be, or as I'm pulling into my subdivision, etc. I personally can think of far more reason to have control away from home then I can when I'm home. But thats me. For me most programming has to do with geo-location and the door opening upon my arrival home. I don't need to program it to auto close as its a built in feature of LiftMaster, mine closes at 12 minutes without any intervention by C4. What exactly are people programming on their garage doors for use while at their house?
