  1. I would love for the Echo's to have a setting for default music. Say you had an Echo dot in your master bedroom but you also had a Sonos Play:3 in there. You could go into the settings for the dot and tell dot to output music to the Play:3 in the master bedroom. This would also work with Control4 audio as well.
  2. Control4 might see that as canibilazing some of their touchscreens but it would be amazing.
  3. https://www.amazon.com/Amazon-MW46WB-Introducing-Echo-Show/dp/B01J24C0TI/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&linkCode=sl1&tag=14-18-20&linkId=67c7e39762a6f045f326cdb575081011 Seems this thing can look at live video from Arlo and Ring. Wish Control4 would get some drivers for that.
  4. What does having web based tools have to do with Control4's business model?
  5. Anyone know if there are any plans to make a web based Composer and Control4 app (old MyHome)?
  6. http://august.com/2017/04/04/new-z-wave-lock-professional-channel/ Seems pretty interesting.
  7. It is going to cost you a lot to do all that through a dealer. if you don't have to have the same interface for AV and home automation there are other platforms out there you will like much better. If you want a consistent interface throughout and good AV control you may want to bite the bullet and stick with control4.
  8. Would like to see a video demo of this. I am assuming this is a cloud based driver, correct?
  9. When it is programmed to only control a TV, AVR, DVD player and Roku in a media room then it is an amazing universal remote. It may have the capabilities to do far more than that but it has only been programmed to do the functions of a universal remote. That's not a bad thing. This is just a terrible comparison as in my scenario a cable installer would never be writing code (most C4 installers never write code either). What I outlined for a cable installer to do involved ZERO code. It would be them using Composer Express to set up a basic, 1 room media only system. Having non-programmers/technicians be able to set up basic functions was the entire goal of Composer Express.
  10. Nope. Write code for manufacturing control systems. With training, plenty of those installers could do a simple, "universal remote" type system for a single media room install with an EA-1. I worked with mechanics who would do cable installs on the weekend for extra money and they were fully capable of doing it. Im not talking about doing a fully customized, whole house automation system here. No distributed audio, lights, hvac, etc. This is just a suggestion for a way to get Control4 in more homes without adding more dealers, because adding dealers is the only other way it increase footprint.
  11. My bad guys. I didn't realize making a few connections in Composer was so difficult (it's not). The arrogance of some in here is very strange.
  12. You don't think the majority of those installers with training could install an EA-1 and have it control a TV, AVR, Cable/Satellite box, DVD player and streaming box? that would be the best way for Control4 to expand the number of installed systems without bringing in more dealers. The cable installer does that small system and then refers them to a full dealer in case they want to add lighting, thermostats, etc. Don't really see a downside.
  13. Any chance you could write a driver for the August doorbell camera like you have the Ring camera?
  14. I've been looking into this myself. I am leaning towards the August doorbell camera since you can integrate the August lock with it.
