  1. control4 dimmers

    Are you sure about this? All of my dimmers are legacy on 2.10 and all of the features you described still work on my system.
  2. HC300 Question

    Are you sure the factory reset worked? Which exact model did you purchase? Only the HC-300C has the factory restore feature (the rest require a USB stick).
  3. I have a couple legacy dimmers where the toggle is losing its crispness... meaning the nice click is gone and it is sometimes unclear if the on/off action has been initiated. I have several embernet switches laying around that are no good to me - has anyone taken a dimmer apart to see if the radio can be swapped into a newer (or better functioning) body? Or found a way to clean the inside contacts to regain the click?
  4. Just purchased 2 brand new LDZ-102 white dimmers only to find out they are still on embernet. They have been powered up but are otherwise in mint condition. Face plates included. I paid $120 for the pair but make me an offer.
  5. C4 Install money saving ideas/tips?

    Depending on your capability, find an online dealer (several are on this forum), do the physical install yourself, and have them remote connect for all programming. It can be done - I have never had a dealer set foot in my house and I probably saved thousands.
  6. Which Roku?

    I just bought the Roku Premiere+ and am very pleased. I chose the Premiere+ because of 4k support (future proofing) and the built in ethernet since I prefer hardwired over wifi.
  7. Hikvision POE cameras

    Have you considered LTS Security cameras? Many if not all of their cameras are Hikvision hardware with unique firmware developed and supported by LTS (a US company). I have several turrets and could not be happier with them. Great firmware support, a local US office that is very responsive, and they were significantly cheaper than Hikvision. Go read up on IPCamTalk.com if you are interested. I got mine from a member over there named milkisbad.
  8. Email and MyHome

    I would do some troubleshooting on your home network first. Try pinging the controller's IP next time you are having problems to verify the connection is still active. Also try rebooting your network equipment (router, modem, etc) instead of the controller and see what that does. Can you log in with Composer after emails stop? Check these and you should be able to get closer to isolating the problem.
  9. I have had a CardAccess Wireless Contact Sensor running on batteries for a while and recently added a Wireless Relay to the same area. The relay requires a power supply and it looks like the power requirements are the same for both devices. Is it possible to power both with a single transformer? I tried hooking them up in series but that did not work. Is it possible? Update: I think I just found my answer. Looks like they have to be wired in parallel (like electrical outlets).
  10. 4 Sight Connectivity Issues

    What a timely topic! Having the same problem with T-Mobile and changing the frequent IP change setting seems to have fixed it. Thanks!
  11. new official driver: BlueIris

    I am in the process of getting a BI system setup. My controller is still on 2.4. Will the new BI driver be available for me or do I have to upgrade?
  12. DSC1832 Capabilities in C4

    Could it be the baud rate? Make sure it is set to 9600. Section 2.2 of this document explain how to reset: http://homeseer.com/pdfs/DSC/29007363R003_IT_100_developer_guide.pdf
  13. Would you buy a new C4 system?

    I am happy with my system but only because I did it all without ever having a dealer come to my home (DIY install + remote programming). I constantly tell people about C4's capabilities but I cant recommend anyone spend the $$ required to put in a system the traditional C4 way. I just see no long term future for C4 but unfortunately I'm not sure there is anything else out there at the moment that is comparable.
  14. Thermostat. Please educate me

    I installed one purely for remote control. I can control the thermostat from my smartphone/ipad whether I am sitting in bed under the covers or sitting at my desk at work about to head home. That alone was worth the price for me. I have yet to see the need to fully integrate mine with C4 (and the C4 thermostat looks like crap in my opinion). I currently have a Honeywell version that I couldn't be happier with.
  15. Why not buy/install all the equipment yourself and have a remote integrator do the programming via the web? Thats what I did. Admittedly I also had a low voltage contractor run some ethernet and small wiriing in my house, but it saved me a bundle on C4 labor. To this day I have never had a C4 installer inside my house and it is the only way I could afford the system. I have expanded mine probably a half dozen times by adding switches/sensors myself and have them remotely added to my project. I am in Houston if you want more info... feel free to PM me.
