    Can you roll this into c4?

    This is going to be a built in wall oven with cabinets around it. Not sure I want to trust a wemo is going to hold up. Or if I have to reboot it I can’t. I’ve had some flakey wemos already that needed to be unplugged. The kitchen is above an electric subpanel so easy to put oven on its own breaker so hoping for something maybe in the breaker box to monitor? switching topics but would look for gas monitoring too for gas stove and outdoor grill!

    Did you ever look into thermasol? Just reviewing my options with all features considered

    I could plug a wall oven into a wemo? If wemo goes bad I can’t easily plug/unplug it. Given its a built in unit I do not mind a higher cost item that works. The steam generator will be easy to reach so a wemo could work too just like the humidity tag idea.

    What hardware? Want to do this with kitchen appliances. Likely need something more than a Wemo.

    https://store.wirelesstag.net/products/wireless-tag-13-bit-temperature-and-humidity has ifttt integration. Thinking of putting it under the bench in steam room. When humidity gets to a certain level programming assumes steam shower is o. Set a timer as a reminder to turn off. If I go to turn on away alarm or goodnight mode and it senses steam I’d get a notice.

  9. anyone have experience? I am in the market for windows and doors and was quoted Andersen. No real issue with them but on a review site comparing Pella to Andersen 1-2 things caught my eye including home automation so clicking through I find http://www.pella.com/insynctive/home-automation-controller/ Seems like some windows and doors have sensors built in already? Assuming wireless so would need batteries to be changed. I am currently running a DSC alarm integrated into C4....Thinking it may get messy to run some security sensors direct with DSC and others in C4 Just seemed like a novel idea so wanted to see if anyone had other thoughts on the product.

    back in late 2015 you can from the link in a post above that I got a holovision doorstation. Holovision has its own hardware called VIO. VIO is their sip hardware/interface. There was a driver written by houselogix to make VIO work in C4. great. Took 1-2 revisions of the driver to get full functionality but it worked. When C4 upgraded their communication agent, either 2.9.x or 2.10.x or whatever, they changed SIP communication standards and thus, the driver for VIO stopped working. Houselogix is not supporting drivers anymore (do not get me started there) so all the sudden, VIO didn't work and I had an expensive and useless paperweight for a doorbell. Holovision is big with Crestron and some other players but want to get more into the C4 space, so to retrofit current clients plus find a way for longer term stability for C4 they decided to look at 2n Helios due to the partnership between 2n/c4 (I assume, I dont work for any of these players). 2n has always had decent c4 integration, they make the c4 doorstation, etc. So I guess its a "safer" bet to continue to work. I was able to make the field change and remove the VIO and add in the 2n kit. I guess if you went to buy holovision today and said you have c4 they would spec their faceplate/mic/camera/speaker unit and it would be powered by a 2n video kit as the SIP communication tool. Most 2n offerings are too futuristic for me, I wanted something traditional/classic looking, so the 424 model for Holo fits the bill. I believe Doorbird looks the part but there is a limit (at least there was in 2015) as to how many calls it can make at once, so it could only call a few touchscreens/cell phones and that was not appealing to me. End of day, it is a mismash of two platforms but it has the look my wife wants with the function we want (calls unlimited touch screens/cell phones/computers/tablets at the same time) and I can program events within C4 when someone presses the doorbell. I could also program against motion events and other types of events as well. I do not have Composer Pro, I am just an end user. I think my 2n driver is slightly different from the "c4 doorstation driver" but I am sure 98% of it may be the same. Someone else with more knowledge would have to chime on the various drivers involved.

    keep us posted on your progress. At this point I think I have control kind of worked out, now just curious how to integrate music - via their own systems or just straight C4 and use a mini key fob in the shower to change sources and have a keypad button turn on the music.

    Close to the same size. 5’ x 6’. 6.6’ or so is 2m. So fairly close. But mine is a shower/steam room in one. Big shower with a bench. And steam generator. Many experience installing speaker under the bench re audio quality? It’s a shower doesn’t have to be critical quality 🙂 i see people talk about 1 dual coil speakers for bathrooms. Less clutter, quicker install. Found this one that is waterproof. Maybe 1 in general bathroom area and the other in the steam shower? And make each one a zone? http://www.bizz-tech.com/Ceiling_Speakers-Waterproof_Dual-VoiceCoil_6_5_Stereo_Speaker.html if I stick with thermasol and can’t get integration maybe I’ll get creative - if steam generator gets hot to the touch maybe I can put a sensor on it? Over a certain temp means it’s on. Or put a sensor in the shower. Same concept. The thermasol heats up in 60 seconds. Can’t see being at the store and wanting to start it before I get home. Just like to know status of it for programming purposes.

    Any plans for audio? Trying to figure if I need a zone in steam shower and zone in rest of bathroom or just 1 speaker per location and call it the same zone audio control built into these units are lacking good control. All local Bluetooth. Thinking about bypassing their built in audio and running audio in steam shower via c4/audio matrix. Use a card access mini remote to change source/volume. And only steam controller to control steam looking at c4 integration for experience buttons, if steam goes on turn radio to X stream, etc.

    @thedriverslab - any update on thermasol? Starting to price out a renovation project. Plumbing supply store sells thermasol, mr steam and steamist and said the prices are within 100-300 bucks or so but he had less headaches with thermasol equipment vs the others. Not sure if he gets more profit off that brand or if the claims of quality are true. Of course steamist and mr steam have c4 integration and as of last check thermasol didn’t have a driver. Please let me know if you have an update on thermasol. Thanks

    Not being wise but really do not know. I was part of beta testing each item and got stuff at cost direct from holovision. I have to figure somewhere around 1000-1500 retail? Holovision has tons of models and some are smaller and cheaper (no camera or no IR or analog cameras not IP, etc) so prices can certainly vary. I see the 2n kit for sale for about 500-600 online. So then add the holovision hardware (faceplate, camera, speaker, mic, power Supplies, etc) holo is not showing the 2n option on their site for c4 - still says VIO but they don’t sell a ton to c4 channels so likely just forgot to update their marketing. Given the now perfect c4 intergration and dozens of options in finishes and styles and features I am surprised it’s not discussed more as a 3rd party solution
