  1. Carrier Infinity with control4

    Strong!!!!!! Thanks Cyk
  2. Carrier Infinity with control4

    I’d guess that it works with any of the newer style Infinity Touch thermostats that are WiFi capable. Great find Vstar!!!! Now someone smarter than me needs to write a driver

    Look up the model number on your unit and find an installation document. Should be pretty easy to figure out if you can hook up a standard t-stat.
  4. Carrier Infinity with control4

    With Infinity you must use a Carrier thermostat to retain variable speed fan features/humidity/pressure sensing/damper control/reminders. You can use a dumb T-stat but you lose all of those features. Variable speed is the most important of those... it’s a 4 wire proprietary communicating system. The main panel does have the hookup for standard control “for emergency use only”.

    Carrier sells those SAMs for $1000. Seems like a good reason for them to lock it down. Except they can’t sell very many of them. Maybe no open API for anyone to even write a driver. Im SO glad my Carrier system died

    That info is correct. Only way to integrate Carrier Infinity in Control4 is the SAM module and serial cable. Search these forums on the topic. There are a few posts over the years... I’ve probably researched this topic for hours on end, attempted to buy a Sam and after a couple years of an eBay search I was able to find one. That said this is not a perfect integration at all... You will not get any sort of scheduling features in C4. All must be done on carrier side. You can control temp set point but that’s about it. Maybe select preset... It may or may not work with your T-Stats. Have to be a certain revision number... this can be found in the SAM documentation I’ve linked. AND.... after I did all that work just a few months later my 12 year old Carrier system shit the bed and I had it yanked out and replaced with the cheapest single speed system I could find (Goodman) and Control4 T-Stat. So if you want the SAM and compatible T-stat I have one I’m not using.
  7. How about the release of the announced Hayward Omnilogic integration from 2014????

    He’s saying the green “High” is bleeding into the others and now C4 has a little plastic block to prevent this. Contact your dealer or C4 customer service to see if they have a fix.
  9. Security System

    I have Concord4 integrated with Alarm.com and C4. For that system it uses the superbus2000 interface. One card for C4 (serial) and one for a cellular device (alarm.com). Not sure on alarm.com specifics as that was installed by the alarm guy.
  10. I live in Austin... I’ve talked to the guys at StellarAV a few times. I’d hit them up if you want a local dealer. Personally, I use a remote dealer on this site and it works great for my needs.
  11. Upgrade Time

    Search Ebay Completed listings for best current street price.
  12. HDMI distribution

    HBO is a free throw in option now... anyone with AT&T cell phone and certain data plan get FREE HBOGo. What will happen if net neturality dies is that you will be charged based on what services you want. You have Netflix? That’s extra $20/mo and we may or may not throw in the service. I believe AT&T FIOS may already give you Netflix, not sure how it’s factored into price.
  13. HDMI distribution

    The trend is toward the cord cutters and away from mainstream cable providers. I do see the case to be made for distributed video but the usefulness is waning due to streaming services and cheap/free streaming boxes. This has caused massive consolidation of TV providers lately. Pretty much every tv provider now offers a streaming option. c4 is (maybe) releasing a non AV centric controller My current (now former) TV provider is Google Fiber. They recently increased the price of TV to $110/mo. In their notification they basically said “sign up for YouTube TV because it’s better for us and you”. I kept the gigabit internet and just pay $70/mo for that and am trying out streaming services.
  14. I recently had my garage door opener motor changed to myq with yellow button and it would no longer work with regular relay. I had to purchase this device that mimics the communication portion of the fancy myq to make it a regular relay. Works great now. http://www.creativeaccesssolutions.com/index.php
