  1. Would anyone be able to help me load @alanchow's generic TCP driver? PM me please.
  2. Roomba 980 integration

    I found this link on the web and was wondering if this would make it possible to integrate my Roomba 980 (We call her Molly) into our control4 environment. https://github.com/koalazak/dorita980 There seems to be local and cloud control both available. I'm sure the cost/benefit ratio is not great but.....I like cool stuff!!! So if anyone has ideas and wants to sound off on it!!!
  3. Control 4 remote/Plex/Apple TV/ Mac Mini Question

    I must have misread the specs on this then. http://files.qnap.com/news/pressresource/datasheet/TVS-x82_P28_(EN)_51000-024112-RS_0815_D_web.pdf
  4. 2.10 Considerations

    So if I read this correctly, if there is a camera in the project, I can trigger it to show on my living room tv with programming?
  5. Control 4 remote/Plex/Apple TV/ Mac Mini Question

    Depends on what NAS he has...I have a Qnap and it runs my plex server with hardware transcoding. It allowed me to drop down to one box instead of 2 for the same task. You solved his situation but like has been pointed out, more than one way to skin a cat. And the Chowmain drivers for Kodi and Plex are perfect. Thanks @alanchow
  6. Security 101

    1) Not a bad price. I love all my UniFi gear so far. 2) Yes but I've found it nice to see the status of the alarm when watching footage. The other reason for the macro feedback to the video is so you can do the other items and have onscreen feedback. Like if you had a connected door lock you could punch in your code while watching the video and lock or unlock the door. Say you have a neighbor that needs to borrow your gas can...You can pull up the video, wait till he's standing out front, open the garage door, watch him leave and close it behind him without ever leaving the video feed. The screen overlay's give a user a lot of options for control with visual feedback on tablets or phones. 3) Blue Iris can group cameras and give them a name so it just looks like a normal camera feed in the C4 interface. It gives you options to see several views at once or you can still pull in single cameras. I just wish the C4 interface could run at higher resolutions.
  7. Looking for local dealer to do walkthrough of house. Basic C4 setup but need networking experience as well. Equipment: EA-5, HC800 (that needs refurbish) 3 roku's, 2 BluRay's, 2 marantz receivers, 3 TV's, projector, Wii, 3 audio/video zones Vista 21IP security, Vera Plus, Wink Hub 2, Google Home, Amazon Echo couple of lights, couple of outlets (Zigbee, Z Wave - C4 & generic), MyQ Garage openers wireless and wired IP cams, blueIris UniFi Gateway, Edge switch, 3 UniFi AP's, NAS (TV shows, Movies, Music, Pictures - Plex & Kodi) And a partridge in a pear tree!

    1) not sure what cost are on a UniFi camera but an IP camera will work with Blue Iris. 2) You can update your camera feed with macros from C4. (my front door camera also tells me what my Honeywell Vista 21IP alarm state is) 3) you can make groups of cameras or single cameras that can be pulled into C4 4) you can overlay a 9 key keypad on the camera feed so on phones or tablets you can actually enter pin codes and have it trigger C4 events or just make a hot spot on the camera screen so you just tap on a light that you see in the camera and it turns it on/off 5) lots of configuration possibilities that's the short list...LOL
  9. Security 101

    Have you thought about a well placed mine for the delivery driver to set the package on?
  10. Security 101

    Adding to the automation side...there's nothing like having a motion sensor kick on a light to startle someone. I'm toying with the idea of having one play announcement "no solicitations please" when they trigger the motion.
  11. Garage door sensor setup?

    Does anyone have the install docs on these yet? Maybe not since they just announced them? *Nevermind, I found it*
  12. LDZ-102 firmware

    how do you update the firmware on a c4 dimmer? LDZ-102?
  13. LDZ-102 firmware

    Well.....shoot. It's been struggling to connect to my EA-5 and my HC800 is down until I can get a dealer to send it in to refurbish it. but based on what your saying I'd still need a older unit.
  14. MyQ IFTTT Channel

    Sonic, I have an EA-5 with all of my ports open except the serial 1 port...runs to my Honeywell CBM module. My garage doors are both MyQ and I know there are drivers but they need internet to work. I'm looking for a solution that is instantaneous. The Cat5 cables run back to my switch which is also right next to my EA-5. I seen on the internet there is a way to "patch into" the back of the on-wall door control boxes but I wanted to hear what the professionals say.
  15. Control4 3.0

    No it's not...just watch the news. Muahahahahaa...<--------I should have quoted it.
  16. Energy Monitoring

    isn't there a GE Z-wave wall recepticle replacement that does energy monitoring that is now supported by the Z-wave C4 module?
  17. Control4 3.0

    No it's not...just watch the news. Muahahahahaa
  18. MyQ IFTTT Channel

    I'm going to use this thread for a simple question that my overly simple mind is struggling with... I have cat5 run close to both of my garage doors. How do I hardwire them so I get status (open/closed) of my door and control? Thank you,
  19. MyQ IFTTT Channel

    You mean it doesn't have open option.....
  20. LG TV IP Driver - Released

    That's what I was asking but you were definitely more clear in your phrasing. Thanks VINCELdUB
  21. LG TV IP Driver - Released

    That would be very helpful but I haven't found a way to direct the GUI to pull the front door camera up from the security tab in the gui interface. If there is a way to do that then I can reset back using the snapshot driver once a timer finished and my wife could see who was at the door. My scenario is front door camera detects motion. c4 announcement that someone is at door. then Living room tv shows front door camera live feed so she can walk by it on her way to door. then return tv to previous state. The camera is an Hikvision and it is also loaded into blue iris which I have a driver for...so.....let the brainstorming begin!
  22. LG TV IP Driver - Released

    Does that give you live video or just a pic?
  23. LG TV IP Driver - Released

    Not for toast messages. I know there is a web browser integrated into the LG Web OS so I didn't know if a specific web address could be input and showed in a PIP or just change the screen and flip back to original programming after a set time. Just a thought since C4 won't let you, to my knowledge, switch to a live view of a camera in response to a triggered event and then return to previous input. I heard that was removed in one of the latest releases.
  24. LG TV IP Driver - Released

    Have you tried a PIP window popup with a local IP website? Say, a IP camera link?
