  1. I could sure use a configurable keypad that would control two loads (or more). My house has more than one location where more than two loads are controlled at one location. In one spot, there are 8 switches controlling 4 loads and 4 aux. Two loads on one keypad would clean things up a lot.
  2. I've got some random thoughts on all of this. First is that I am amazed at the apathy for music quality and video quality. Tin can portable speakers are acceptable. SD TV displayed on HDTVs and the end user doesn't realize it isn't even HD. Overly compressed satellite sound and video -- these don't seem to bother most consumers. Until the number of consumers that want high fidelity sound and video increases, the door is open. Also, Amazon, Apple, and Google don't make any real infrastructure hardware. While Samsung makes everything but light switches (as far as I know), and if you considered their phones as voice controllers, they have all the bases covered. We'll they be a threat? They could be. If they got in bed with Bezos, they really could be a market threat from entry level to 1%ers.
  3. No, not at the moment.
  4. I never did the FW update on my SC-62. It does drop off (rarely) and cold boot brings it back. It rarely shows up as an Airplay target (practically never) which doesn't really matter, just makes me wonder about its networking stability. I use RS-232 control.
  5. Pics before I break the racks down and move

    Got some great help there. I'll bet he gets top dollar.
  6. I do, but I don't. It's an old system that would take ADT and a contract to "take-over" -- or paying someone to install a take-over board. However, my wife doesn't want a security system and the cost is prohibitive since she doesn't want it in the first place. I was thinking about starting out with a wireless sensor and moving up from there.
  7. I'm interested in automating some of my lights based on motion. After reading another thread about setting different levels based on time of day -- this is something I never thought of but would really make it easier to automate things without being annoying. What motion sensors do you recommend? I'll definitely need some battery powered, but some could be wired (low voltage) if there is such a thing. Thank you.
  8. Different light levels at night

    You have logic errors in your IF blocks. Your last IF block is always going to execute. I think that is what @msgreenf meant.
  9. Just an update. I should have said "totally out of sync" with the C4 iOS app. There is no rhyme or reason to what the C4 app shows and the actual state of the switch. This just came up with a recent trip over Thanksgiving weekend. I'd call up my C4 app and have no real idea what was the state of the lights in the house. I could control them by toggling them on/off/on. Or off/on/off and the lights would react. But if I turned the light off, the next time I called up the app, it would likely show it as On, even thought it was actually off. Not sure if this is in the way it is set up or just a flaw in the driver(s)? I should also note that you can't dim the lights with the 260 wand. Off or on only. They don't show up like a C4 dimmer. @chopedogg88 @AK1
  10. Yeah, but the logo in the bottom corner of mine just have Z-Wave, not Z-Wave Plus. And now ZWP has instant notification switches, but I don't know if Vera supports it. Wonder if Lutron is going to let it go or sue them?
  11. Big difference, apparently, from z-wave to z-wave plus. Mine are all straight z-wave. Bad timing buying them right before all the plus versions emerged.
  12. Where to you download 4k movies?

    Yeah, it updated on initial setup. I ended up returning it and just use the new Xbox. It actually does a better job, but it's behind the TV and I never ran audio back from the TVs to the AVRs. I might invest in a new one to put in the rack. I'm starting to get back on board with having the physical media here as a backup.
  13. Where to you download 4k movies?

    I'm not willing to gamble on kscape. I think they've priced themselves out of reach of enough customers for the company to sustain itself. Maybe I ought to be asking what the most reliable blu-ray player is? Our brand new player balked on a brand new disk on the first play out of the box for both the player and the disk. Thanks for all the input.
  14. Where to you download 4k movies?

    Is the digital copy 4k?
  15. Disappointing revelation from Apple today. 4k streaming, but no 4k downloads for a while. Since I have crap for Internet, I need to have it downloaded (or on 4k Bluray) to take advantage of it. Well, I hate bluray period. I want to buy it and have a digital copy on my computer. What's the best way to do this? I'd rather buy it than rip it.
