  1. Schedule your HVAC contractor and C4 dealer at the same time. Let them dual.
  2. What resolution do you recommend scaling down to?
  3. I had a Luxul ABR440 router, Luxul PoE switch, and a Luxul unmanaged switch all put in by my dealer. I had sporadic issues, so I took out the router and PoE switch and replaced them with an edgerouter lite and a PoE edgeswitch and it has been rock solid since. I left in the Luxul unmanaged switch because it looks great in the rack and I haven't had any issues with it. The premium price for Pakedge/Luxul is just not worth it IMO. With that being said, read up on the Ubnt gear. It is not for the faint of heart, it's not plug and play and there are occasionally firmware bugs such as 5.4.9 for the UniFi AP line that was released then pulled a few weeks later.
  4. SOLD - NO LONGER AVAILABLE x1 New in box Wireless Keypad Dimmer (white) $150 x2 Used Wireless Adaptive Phase Dimmer (white) $125/each x2 Used Wireless Switch (1 white, 1 snow white) $100/each x5 Aux Keypad (4 snow white, 1 white) - $50/each
  5. Currently I have different thumbnails for streams and snapshots. Ideally the snapshot overlays the stream, so let me know if you get it working that way.
  6. It "depends". Theoretically yes, but in the real world with firewall rules etc, ~900Mbps is probably more realistic (without bridging LAN ports). Here's a good review on it, but note that this is with 1.0.2 firmware. You can run OpenVPN on ERL but it will require you to use CLI:
  7. Not a dealer but use UniFi G3 cameras and NVR. Using some generic driver but would be willing to try.
  8. I am using both a managed and unmanaged switch in my C4 system. I have all my core C4, Sonos, wall jacks going to an unmanaged switch and WAPs, Cameras, Touch Screens to a PoE managed switch. No porblems here.
  9. The DIY route is the most extreme way to cut costs. In my opinion, leaving the initial install up to a dealer with likely hundreds of hours of experience is best way, depending on how clean you want your install. I guess I prefer to leave items like prewiring & terminating data/phone/cable, TV install, speaker placement and installation, surround sound, remote temp sensors etc etc. DIY would also require you to coordinate with your builder/designer/architect/electrician the location of all different requirements, something normally your dealer is responsible for in new construction.
  10. Have you sourced quotes from different dealers? I ditched lighting from my build. It can easily be added at a later time unless you want to do panelized lighting. My zoned central ac system was not compatible with Control4 so cost was absorbed in hvac proposal. You could also cut down on cost by pre-wiring for touch pads and deciding whether you really need them. I stream Sonos from my phone and control TV's with SR260 remotes and rarely even use my touch screens. For network, pre wire Ethernet to each room and a few different locations for WAP's. This will make it easier to add additional WAP's after insulation and walls are up.
