    Bryant Evolution integration

    As Luke pointed out, no need for a SAM when using a non-Infinity thermostat such as a C4 thermostat but you lose all of the fancy Carrier Infinity features such as variable speed. Since you purchased 3 C4 thermostats, I assume you have 3 Carrier Infinity systems that are a few year old? If you want to use the Carrier Infinity fancy features, you must use a Carrier Infinity thermostat. Then, if you want this integrated into C4, you need a SAM. Each SAM can control 1 or 2 Carrier systems. For my house, I had 3 Carrier systems integrated into C4 using 2 SAMs installed almost 2 years ago. Variable speed is great because you never hear/feel the system/fan because the system/fan run on very low speed almost all the time. I've read on this forum that the newest Carrier Infinity systems no longer use SAMs to integrate with C4 but I have no direct knowledge/experience with any of those.
  2. @RyanWorks for me! thanks for the help and keep up the great work.
  3. This is what I use to generate 1 additional skip back for each button press
  4. @msgreenf My HC800 is on device renamer 2.0.2 and auto update 4. Auto update and manual update don't get me anything newer. The update log says: --LOG START-- Wed Jul 12 04:36:52 2017 Update: util_device_renamer Sun Jul 9 04:36:52 2017 Update: util_device_renamer Sun Jul 2 04:18:56 2017 Update: util_device_renamer Wed May 3 04:23:42 2017 Update: util_device_renamer Sun Apr 30 04:23:42 2017 Update: util_device_renamer --LOG END-- My dealer says there are problems with auto update and I recall he manually updated my device renamer to 2.0.2. How do I go about getting auto update to work so I can automatically get 2.0.5 and future releases of this great driver? thanks
  5. I'm confused which is not all that unusual . Houselogix site says latest version is 2.0.2 Gary say he has 1.0.8 and msgreenf replied that's the latest mine is stuck on 1.0.7 since July 12
  6. Is Houselogix auto update ever coming back? I just manually executed auto update and the LUA activity log shows the last update, which happens to be for Device Renamer, on July 12. My C4 system shows Device Renamer at 1.0.7 thanks!
  7. Can Renamer be updated to handle this?

    Remote Programming Services.

    Finally, I'm getting the Control4 system setup & programmed the way I want. Matt does it all. He fixed some programming problems from the initial install, expanded the functionality (hardware & software) and eliminated over 50% of the original code. Very knowledgeable and quick to respond. Will certainly continue to rely on him! Thanks again Matt!!
  9. I'm upgrading a Tekmar hydronic heating system in my house. Included in the upgrade is adding wall and floor temperature sensors so I can install the new thermostats out of sight in the boiler room. I see HouseLogix has Control4 drivers for the Tekmar 482 RS232 Gateway (software vendor is Cinegration) and the Tekmar 485 Internet gateway (software vendor unknown). Both appear to offer C4 control of Tekmar thermostats. Any idea of what the differences are from a Control4 perspective, either functionality (esp. for thermostats) and/or user interface and/or software vendor reputation? Recommendations? thanks

    Ecobee Integration

    Is there any way/trick to: 1. Programmatically display the weather page and/or 2. Keep the weather page displayed instead of timing out and going back to the main page? thanks!

    Late to the party but if you hover the mouse over each line of "Turning the screen off ", at least Composer HE will identify the room involved. Of course room and/or thermostat name should be displayed in line of code but it isn't. Maybe they will add it in a future release.
  12. +1,000 Inability to print/export/search code is the biggest flaw in the HE programming environment. Surprising how primitive HE is but it's WAY better than nothing.

    Windows LIVE is not installed anywhere. Thanks for reply.

    Thanks you for your response. Yes, it's turned on. I earn my living in IT so I understand the issues. The Windows 8.1 machine is successfully serving many files to many applications for many users on many different machines. C4 support admitted the problem is on their end and they've known about it forever but have no intention of correcting it or publicly documenting it. Not what I'd hope for from any IT company!
