  1. I too have my refrigerator on the system and it is in fact useless. It's neat watching the door open and close on the touchscreen, but that's it. My oven is the wolf with the rotating panel, it too is not able to integrate. It would be nice preheating it on my way home, but I think only one oven in there lineup is able to use the module.
  2. Swipe right on the Dot item in the Amazon store. Add to cart, check out. I did it that way, don't have an echo yet but it worked. Jeff
  3. Still for sale?
  4. Scooter, I use an HRV in my house as my outside ventilation but more importantly as my bathroom fans. I have my HRV kick on high whenever the bathroom light is on. So if level is greater than 20%, HRV is toggled via a relay on my hc800. (The relay from 800 goes to one of the humidity contacts on the HRV.) In a few bathrooms I turn the lights to 15% during movies as a nightlight of sorts so I don't want it turning on then, so I changed the toggle level to 20. I never have a humidity problem with showering etc, also if someone uses the bathroom it expels nicely. Oh and with turning the HRV on with the light I don't have to remind my 6 year old each day to turn on the bathroom fan. Has worked perfectly for 2 years.
  5. I've been happy with mine. Battery died quickly on the first unit. They sent me another. Has worked very well. Although battery's lastingly 8-12 months and must be purchased through them. Mine used to be white. It's now yellow which looks horrible. I'm unhappy with a yellow unit against white trim. It's also under a covered porch not in direct sun so it's turned with even just a bit of uv exposure.
  6. I turn on ceiling fan to distribute the heat within the room. I also turn the hvac fan to 'on' if it happens to be in 'auto' to draw the heat from that room into the other rooms on that zone. Keeps the room very comfortable, while still getting nice warmth from the radiant heat and keeps it very efficient. I use the red button on my sr250 for the fireplace. I also created a custom button on the rooms 7" touchscreen so it's really quick to turn it on/off. If I leave the house the "away" button turns the fireplace off. If the fireplace runs more that 1 hour I get a text/email just in case.
  7. I did a while back and they never got back to me. I assumed it wasn't possible. Maybe I'll ask again.
  8. I have an hc800 and don't want to replace it just to get intercom on my touch screens. Anyone have a license you want to sell? Jeff
  9. I did it. I simply took a wire off the built in relay on the actual chime unit, and wired that to my hc800 contact. I then disabled my speaker because i have my hc800 play a .wave chime in my homes speakers instead. When the sensor (which is in my concrete) trips it signals the relay to close and bingo. The wiring is just connecting the the back of the chime to the back of the controller. Add that contact in composer pro (dealer) and program against that. Lights turn on at night, touch screens display my front driveway camera, pauses dish network for 15 seconds and display tv to cameras and back to tv...Unpause. Also starts a the net to turn off lights after 5 minutes at night. Only plays the chime in all rooms except my daughters after 730 (bedtime)
  10. Pm sent

  12. I think it "looks for" all control panels once every 24 hours, and if there is no response during that query it says it failed, I had the same issue when I hooked up the module. Once I added the driver to my system all has been well since. Make sure the wires are correct on both ends. Uninstall the superbus from the GE side of things, then re add it. Make sure you have the correct driver.
  13. I want to use my touchscreens for intercom. I have a late 2012 HC800, no license, and am looking at options. Does anyone have a lead on a intercom license for sale? Should I wait to see if something might happen with 2.7? Should I buy an HC250 for the GUI on a separate TV as a work-around? Or, even try to sell my 800 and buy a new one with the license? My system has been expanding, as well as my house, and I would like to not have to yell up 2 floors to get someones attention. Any advice would be great. My dealer is "out of ideas". Jeff
  14. I have a popcorn hour and every few weeks it's stops working. I can control it with the remote but from my touchscreens and tv GUI it won't load the movie from the driver. When I unplug the pch and plug it back in, all is well. Could be your problem too. Jeff
  15. Thank you for the information. 2 questions: 1. What driver should be used? Is it part of the database or is it an EV driver or some outside developer? 2. Every time I adda sensor, will my dealer need to log in and add it to my system? Or can I add it to the concord and auto scan and it finds it?
