    Pakedge zones

    So I'm curious how pakedge zones work... If you set up a managed SX 24 port switch to utilize the zone management and POE but then add a SE dumb switch to get the extra ports, how does it know what zones go on the expanded switch? Is that where you just set the SFP+ port to all one type of zone and only put certain hardware on it? Or is there a way to use MAC addresses to work with the VLAN? I'm doing a lot of reading but lack the real world experience in this area. I think this kinda ties into recommended network practices and how we should be budgeting and planning our networks to be more robust for Control4.

    Very cool. I didn't figure they would make it so you HAD to use multiple managed switches to get larger systems set up. So in theory I could use the unmanaged switch and plug in 2 A/V receivers, 2 blue ray players, 2 roku's, my HD HomeRun box, 2 TV's, and my xbox. Then connect all my C4 gear straight to the managed switch along with my POE camera's, right? *This thing looks like you can assign MAC addresses to a VLAN. So I wouldn't have to do it by port, I could do it by MAC address and when the unifi AP's send data then the wireless device would get put in the correct VLAN. Am I going down the right road? This s*&%t is cool!
  5. I have a configurable keypad dimmer and the volume up and down arrows seem to take forever to move the volume. Is there a way to increase the increments they adjust the volume so each press moves it by 1 or 2 instead of a half? Thank you, ecschnei

  10. Anyone want to chime in on the russian malware issue with all the routers? What should we be looking for in the routers? Sorry if that is more for another forum but I know we have experts on here that are better informed on the ways C4 exposes our systems to the world.
  11. Hmmmm, good to know.😣
  12. http://a.co/2cPY1QS and the android STB stick that Sonic talked about...might be the workaround you needed Pounce
  13. Just putting all options on the table. I've found as a salesman to throw one really expensive option out there so the rest look reasonable...LOL

    I like the price but sounds like its in that gray area. Chowmain has a $60 driver...I'm looking into that. I use it to adjust my thermostat in my house since the upstairs gets warmer in the direct sunlight and summer time. Unless I should just pick up another sensor that provides c4 with 2nd zone temp to program off of.....

    Maybe somebody should start a separate thread for a survey and everybody can visit a store that's close to him and then rate the experience. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G920A using Tapatalk
  22. I'm up to donate. I've found some great info on here and found some great dealers. Also, do I have to browse the site a couple of links in to make it work or click and then I can hit the back button. I don't know how those ads work.

    Can I configure dimmer to show as On/Off toggles?

    Can you create an experience button to do what you want? Just have the experience button trigger a toggle and have the color indicate status
