    Lighting Control & Design Question

    900 square meters and yes, Ive spent way too much on the build and my dealer so he should be pleased! As for renting... nah...

    Lighting Control & Design Question

    My main house is all wireless. My beach house was built from scratch and the approach I followed (on my dealers advice) was to have a wireless dimmer or keypad at every point on a wall where I wanted a control and have that linked to one load. All other loads were then sent to a panelised lighting solution. My dealers view was that I was getting the best of both worlds here and that this was the most cost effective solution. So far no complaints! I have around 40 keypads and another 100 or so circuits linked to 12 or 13 panels.

    Yeah, mine was pretty useless until I turned off the light sensor and has been great since then...

    Control4 App (iPhone / iPad) - Configurable?

    Can definitely be done with HE but is very basic (a global user code) as you say... one day we will get a revamped agent but not today...

    Control4 App (iPhone / iPad) - Configurable?

    The Acces Agent available in Composer HE allows you to put a 4 digit pin in so that you cannot change rooms without knowing the PIN number. It has its limitations and needs an overhaul but may well do what you want.

    You can also wire one of the loads to the keypad and if they are switches (not dimmers) don’t put them in a cupboard / room e want silence as he switches click when the load is turned on and off.

    Yes, Control4 can do what you want (and much more in terms of lighting). Yes, you need a dealer (preferably a local C4 dealer at this stage who can work with the electrician on this).

    Button settings (LED behavior)

    All have their uses. Typically, I use Follow Connection for most of my lights as this requires no programming and is quick and easy. I use push / release for alarm panic buttons. They stay red normally (ie when released) and go black (off) when pushed. I use programming for music, blinds and other such things and in complicated lighting scenarios anywhere where I have more than 2 LED colours) or where I don’t always want the LED to show even though the light is on (e.g. I don’t have the LED activate if lights come on due to motion sensors).

    MyMovies and C4

    Good to know. I must admit that I now so much prefer the Infuse layout and the sorting of movies into their franchises (e.g. all of my James Bond films are together, all of my Harry Potter film are grouped together etc.) that I wouldn’t go back to native C4 movies until it gets a facelift.

    Thanks Mike! We have moved off MyMovies now and have really enjoyed InfusePro for the last while, so all good!
