    Amazon Echo Driver!

    I have the echo show working fine in my showroom with the c4 driver. Appears to only be this driver.

    Amazon Echo Driver!

    If I knew the answer I wouldn't have asked. Would appear something with the show API is different. There are many people in previous posts explaining it does not work. Also it's on their website that it does not support the show.

    Amazon Echo Driver!

    So just to confirm the echo SHOW still does not work with this driver?

    Door Station Worth It?

    If you have a whole house audio system integrated into your control4. It is not a bad product because it can ring anywhere you have speakers. Plus it also has 2 way audio to talk to somembody before you answer door. However that said if something fails with your c4 system or network it will stop functioning... It is not the most reliable piece of c4 hardware in my experience... Also the camera is mounted straight forward with no way of moving it so often you don't get the camera image you like.... With my company we install 3rd party door cameras and just do a generic push button relay for the doorbell and bring the door camera up on the tv. This has worked well for us and is much cheaper considering we do security cameras anyways. I have spent many hours battling door stations over the years to make them do what I need.... Probably not worth the price.

    You do not need the software. All you need is the username/password which is probably the default. lutron/lutron Go to Internet explorer (MUST USE THIS BROWSER) and type int he ip address of the radiora2 main repeater. Type in the user/pass. After that you will get 2 choices. Either deviceip info or get database info as xml If you click get database info as xml it will open the pure code. After that simple Ctrl F and search for "IntegrationID". It will look something similar to this. Area Name="Kitchen" IntegrationID="5" OccupancyGroupAssignedToID="342" SortOrder="3"> You will probably have to play around with the ID's depending on if you want to control a keypad or specific dimmer. Lutron has great support though. The other option is telnetting into the main repeater. Also in my experience the control4 tech support will not help you because as they put it "houselogix made the driver so we don't give support" Really stupid but, hey that's control4. Also keep in mind you need to make sure all code is exposed but clicking the + sighs. This will make sense when you see the code.

    2.7.1 released

    Just saw the email. What is new??
  9. dwman113


    In your scenario I would suggest c4 lighting, mostly because the additional functionality it provides with tracking scenes, led functionality and most importantly zigbee coverage. (oh and it's cheaper...) That said, just to play devils advocate lutron is a big player in the lighting industry and historically has been the most reliable and consistent option period. It works with basically any residential automation system and works standalone. So for example you move to a new house and you take your control4 gear, the purchaser can simply use the lutron app or a different automation hardware and keep the switches.

    For clarification, it is not one or the other. Most systems with DVR/NVR have a source into the matrix as well as cameras on the C4 OSD.

    Also with the integration of phones and tablets the OSD has just become a pain to use.
  12. dwman113


    That definitely used to be the case but with video matrix's being so popular and lighting extending the zigbee network, they have become much less needed.

    An alternative to Kaleidescape ?

    Uhh I can't remember right off hand but I do remember it does not come with a hard drive so you'd have to include that.

    Oh ok you're just saying the same thing everybody else already said. Gotcha. I'll study up on my "board use"

    Isn't that what I said....??? "First URC is more of a single room system and is an industry leader in that specific application. But definitely not a whole home automation solution." MRX-450 and 900 are some of the most sold remotes in the history of remotes... going back 20 years....
