  1. pool control

    Cool. Look forward to it. I will create an account to be kept in the loop. For Screenlogic, I may be incorrect. But this is the same of the app that runs on iPhone and laptops. But it is based on both Easytouch and Intellitouch. In other terms, there is no standalone Screenlogic. I suspect Sally is referring to Easytouch (as opposed to Intellitouch). And I know one of the main differences between Intelli and Easy is the lack of third party access for Easy while Intelli allows it including with Control4. But by all means, try to see if Pentair would relax that and allow a Control4 driver.
  2. pool control

    It would be interesting to see what Intellicenter brings. I agree that right now, ScreenLogic is really all your need. I have connected my Intellitouch i7 to Control4. It is expensive to do for a sub-par experience. Those pool companies are very much behind in terms of software development. They use Serial/9.6 protocols to communicate and the data is very limited. ScreenLogic is "unexpectedly ok" based on old those techs are. I look forward to this new Intellicenter and even more what the driverslab can create for us Control4 users. In the meantime, don't waste your money on trying to interface the legacy Intellitouch with Control4. And if you can't wait for Intellicenter, go the cheaper Easytouch - it is all you need with ScreenLogic. It will save you a lot of money that can be spent with our great remote dealers on this forum!!!
  3. Control4 Matrix Switches

    Thanks ChiAVguy. Do you know roughly the price of the 50ft one? and it is rated for in-wall? Thanks
  4. Control4 Matrix Switches

    Any recommendation for a reasonably priced 15m/50ft in wall rated 4K/HDR 18Gbs hdmi cable? looks like optic fiber monoprice may be a good option but not on Dpl labs. My expensive forest audioquest installed 18 months ago does not seem to carry 4K 😆 Thanks.
  5. New 8 channel amp

    Does it have to be a new AMS or is it a "regular" 12v trigger that could come from somewhere else and managed via programming? like the idea of instant on but big cost to replace existing ams and legacy b&k amps that work "ok" but take 45" to "warm/up" :-).
  6. CEDIA 2017

    If I am not mistaken, you have 3 options: - if no need for contact/relay, EA1 is an option - if contact/relay/IR are needed but no serial nor audio: new Z2IO seems to be perfect (assuming coverage ok) - if contact/relay/serial/IR needed, as well as audio: buy a used HC250 or a EA3 (probably not worth it) Let me know if I miss anything, especially on the new Z2IO
  7. OS 2.10 Features

    Thanks Cyknight. Very helpful as always
  8. OS 2.10 Features

    Do you know what ports have the Z2IO and could it be an option to replace a HC300? I know it has 2 IR but can't remember about relay/contact. I have a HC800 in cabinet but have an old HC300 in Theater room that controls a screen (up/down via relay), projector (via IR) and one/two other devices (PS3,...). The rest is IP based and could be controlled straight from HC800.
  9. New 8 channel amp

    Thanks Elvis. Sounds a little high but it is what it is... Any idea of any limitation if behind an older matrix?
  10. Does anybody know the MSRP for the new 8-channel amp? And will it work with the previous/current matrix switch? Don't see reason why not but who knows :-) Thanks
  11. Remote Integration services offered

    More Kudos for Neil. Once again, he updated my system and did a few changes. It was fast, efficient and great outcome. If only everyone could be as professional and nice as Neil! What a pleasure to be able to always count on Neil...
  12. Same for me.
  13. Wireless Outdoor speaker system

    +1 for Sonarray. Great system! Note it can (should?) be powered by a stereo amp. I have connected mine to one of my 12 channel amps I use for the rest of the house behind a Control4 matrix. Works great. Definitively a great option for efficient outdoor sound coverage. As eddy said, make sure you look at gauge requirements based on distance. You can find them online I believe. If I remember correctly, I ended up using 12 gauge for a roughly 350ft run. Maybe more. Works fine.
  14. I have a fixed yellow triangle exclamation mark on the face on my audio matrix. No sound playing in the house as a result. Did not change anything in my configs, both Control4 and network. Many suggestion? Very frustrated. Thanks.
  15. I have received an e-mail from the Axis team that is running a limited 20% promotion until tonight - I am still waiting for my unit (supposedly shipping soon) and therefore can't comment on performance. But they have confirmed they will release a software update to their zigbee version to connect it with Control4. They have apparently been working with Control4 to incorporate the Control4 cluster in their zigbee stack on day one so that it can be activated down the road. The link above is to to a $189 Zigbee (Control4 ready) and Bluetooth unit instead of $249. Just thought I would share it with the forum as I believe that curtain control is a problem for many of us with no good (and/or affordable) solution. But otherwise, I have zero connection with or involvement in the company :-)
