    Replacement of C4 (Very Generic)

    Considering you already have all the equipment which you have already paid for I would first advise in paying and getting it running again. A couple of days labour to do so, i doubt is much compared to the cost of the equipment. There is also an awesome Sky Q Driver out now. If your projector has a motorised mount there is likely another small remote you should have which will lower it from the ceiling. You will then have to use the projector remote you have to turn on the projector. You will then need a third remote to lower the screen. Without knowing more about what setup you have with regards to HDMI distribution / IR Pass through / Local sources its difficult to say much more.

    Apple TV 4k

    I think the only things you are missing is that a) the ATV should always be on never sleep and b) it's largely irrelevant whether it is or isent actually sleeping as per Cyknight own current measurements.

    Normal time to iron out bugs

    Are the TV's controlled by IP over wireless by any chance?

    texecom premier elite Alarm

    Yes the upstairs sensors can disarm the alarm. Not sure about sensors "Becoming part of the alarm" though... You might be able to do it if you trigger an output from C4 into the alarm panel. I generally try to keep the alarm system to itself and C4 just interacts with it on an arm/disarm basis. I find the most popular part of alarm integration with C4 is automatic home / away triggers. eg, all A/V + Lighting off on alarm set with mocupancy enabled when leaving. And lights coming on if night time with a bit of AV coming on when disarmed and back home.
  5. Just had a client phone asking if there was any way to have alpha numeric keys on the interface, as he uses the search functionality a lot and so uses the digits on the interface to input text. Do I just simply say no? Ideally I would sell him a sr260 but I have no zigbee up there so it starts getting pricey for such a simple thing.

    UK Fire Alarm System

    He said he can't as its grade C. My integration is fairly basic with fire alarm panels in the UK consist of relays then triggering the texecom / C4 to alert and notify.

    Temperature Sensor?

    I'm starting to wonder if Gary is secretly a Philips rep 😂
  8. Texecom is great but I'm still unsure on the status or reliability of the new driver which uses the latest alarm GUI? Last I heard it was pretty unstable, but the old driver + GUI will work fine. Would be nice if i was wrong though and its been updated to work reliably on the new interface and driver.
  9. Who your dealer is is down to you and no one else. If you want 24/7 support and call outs then get a dealer who can do just that. Your choice of dealer is down to you, not control 4.

    Power Outages and Reboots

    If you are loosing power several times over the period of a week you have a LOT to gain from a UPS. You've just said you are getting various issues due to power cuts, so if your equipment is held in by a UPS during a power cut then problem solved? Not to mention the other benefits such as power conditioning and surge protection.
  11. It's not the responsibility of the people on these forums. Everyone here with knowledge on the matter is here on their own voluntary basis. This customer obviously has substantial issues with a new install and wanted to rant about it. This place is great for the odd hint or tip but it's not an appropriate place to help fault find potentially big issues with a new install. Thats the job of the dealer who installed it and no one else. If the dealer is not providing support on a new install then get another dealer and take it up with C4. Ignoring peoples questions who are trying to help diagnose the issue and instead focusing on ranting further will not achieve anything.

    Have you considered a UPS?
  13. Significantly slower! You either cough up a bit more for T3 and benefit from buying something thats built for its purpose or go down the tablet/phone route and (eventually) regret it imo. The cost difference is a no brainer, it used to be a BIG difference in price on the tablet vs touchscreen front.... which meant this argument had some footing... but not anymore.
  14. Nope. I've installed this driver on a LOT of different jobs since it's come out... and aside from a issue with a firmware update by Sky (which was fixed prompto) i've had no problems at all. Judging from your certainty of it being the Sky driver, presumably all works flawlessly if the driver is removed? What processor is running director?
