  1. You could put a Sonos Play1 in the garage that would probably do the trick depending on your setup and which music services you use. I have a $50 UE Roll in my garage strapped to my golf bag. When I’m working out there I just turn on my golf bag speaker. Both are cheaper options than the Triad but may not provide the total experience you want.
  2. Concord 4 Questions

    Sounds like this guy is getting Control4 and Concord4 confused... I have Concord4 integrated into Control4 and while “archaic” it is rock solid and just works. Serial connection. It’s also super easy to add in cheap sensors. I have sensors everywhere including my mailbox for “you’ve got mail” announcements. To the OP: I don’t know of a “no service fee” add on you can use with Concord4 for remote alarming and event monitoring. Alarm.com will give you a cell card that is compatible with Concord4 but it requires a monthly fee. I guess you could get a Control4 system and use a VPN but we are talking thousands of dollars in potential investment for this solution.
  3. Black Friday specials

    LG and Bestbuy are selling the LG B7 65” for $2300. I’ve been eyeing that one for a while. Matt, Y’all have any deals on the OLED? How about other LGs?
  4. FYI, I just got the AppleTV 4K for free for pre-paying for DirecTV Now for 4 months. Saves $40 off the price of ATV even if you never use the service.
  5. This is the Alexa skill I used a while back... honestly I played with it once and it was cool then I forgot about it until just now. https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/ev-car-my-tesla-an-alexa-skill-for-amazon-echo-tesla-integration.85031/ Here's are some things you can say:ask EV Car how far can I drive ask EV Car for charge status ask EV Car for car status ask EV Car for climate status tell EV Car to set driver temperature to 72 tell EV Car to set passenger side to 73 tell EV Car to to honk tell EV Car to flash tell EV Car to lock/unlocktell EV Car to turn climate on/offtell EV Car to start heatingtell EV Car to cool my car tell EV Car to stop climate ask EV Car how warm is my car ask EV Car dude where's my car ask tell EV Car to get ready to take off tell EV Car to go into hyperdrive
  6. I’ve got a Model S. I’m open to testing if y’all come up with something. I never really saw much point. Maybe having the tv come up with charge status, etc automatically when I’m leaving the house? The Tesla phone widget is amazing and can’t be near as easily replicated in C4. Alexa can already tell me anything about the car that the api sees. What id really like is the C4 interface to pop up on my 17” tesla screen when l get close to my house.
  7. Yes, Lifetime Polished Brass
  8. Accepting any reasonable offer...
  9. The C4 in the model number means it has the C4 compatible zigbee chip. Color is: Lifetime Polished Brass. It is used, works perfectly and was previously used in a C4 project by one of the dealers on here I purchased it from. I just ended up not needing it. https://www.kwikset.com/products/details/electronic-locks/910trl-zbc4-l03-smt.aspx

  12. OS 2.10 Features

    I use a remote dealer on here that is more than happy to add eBay gear to my project. Everyone's situation is different and it's unfortunate this seems to be a major issue for some people since much cheaper options for io are available. Each rack/project has its on unique setup so I get why you are frustrated, if it's that big of a deal I'd just skip the update. For me I just needed a way to hook up my garage relay and Carrier Infinity a/c serial module. Adding a hc-250 accomplished that goal for $75 plus 1hr labor for a remote dealer to add it after I got it wired all up.
  13. OS 2.10 Features

    This is a dumb argument. The cost of a used hc-250 ($75 is what I paid on eBay) is substantially cheaper than the price of even the cheapest remote dealer to do the upgrade.

    iOS also... release notes say improved video quality on security cameras.
  15. Home move-in

    +1 for Matt. You sound exactly like me... would like to do it all yourself (I'm also Lutron certified), but feel restricted by composter. I found Matt on here and he does all the pro stuff for me at a very reasonable price. It's extremely nice to have an expert also to help me with complicated programming when I get stuck and he has saved me a ton of time and money.
