  1. Hello - I very often listen to music while I have sports on the television, which is awkward with C4. On one level, I have the sonos set up as a completely separate room. On a different floor, I have the sonos and TV in the same room and just mostly use the sonos ap for audio, with the c4 controlling the TV. Here is my question: I set up the sonos as custom buttons and it works great on my touchpad. I can pick any of 5 standard deezer stations, play/pause work, fast forward works. But volume control does not. The custom 'up' button I set up (linked to SONOS->OUTPUT_VOLUME_LEVEL-1) doesn't do anything. Any suggestions? Second problem. I have never cracked the code on 'linking' two sonos rooms within C4. Can that be done? Either with code or in the app? I have a button that I press for music, but the best I can do is get the same station playing (different songs) on two different sonos (or is it soneye?).

    Chowmain - Plex Full Driver for Control4

    BuddyC - Did you ever figure out the problem? I had the same thing happen to me, and I am just now getting around to looking at it. I'm dead in the water with library control. Will ping dealer...

    Alexa controlling lights

    Hmmm. No. What exactly do you mean?

    Alexa controlling lights

    Testerguy - Did you ever get resolution here? I used to have 'off' commands with the old driver. Now I can't figure out how to turn things off. I turn on scenes, but can't turn off all the lights except one by one (which is really annoying). I used to have some short-cuts like - turn off the kitchen, which was really half a dozen assorted lights.
  6. Why would two separate rooms, two separate rokus, two separate SR-250 remotes suddenly both stop launching custom apps at the same time?? I used to have the red button launch Netflix, Yellow Plex, Green Amazon. All stopped working sometime in the last couple weeks. Roku update? C4 update? Anyone else see this happen? Incidentally, I wonder if anyone knows the name for: Roku: MLB app, NHL app, NFL-SundayTicket Fire-TV: HDHomerun (oops, I cant figure out how to move this to the troubleshooting, posted in the wrong section! Moderator?)
  7. Anyone interested, PM me. Critically important is experience with Vera integration. My Vera and C4 communication hangs about once a month and I’m sick of it. Need someone to fix it. Also looking to add a few things, but WAY secondary to fixing the hang. If I’m posting in the wrong place... Sorry, I’m sure someone will point that out! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Not quite the same application, but it would be handy for a utility room monitoring as well. I've always wanted to track the hvac air temps, water supply temps, and air velocity. Sounds like this would do the trick if you made it flexible. Arduino/pi should be easy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    IFTTT ideas (and issues)

    Ah, good call. Also had to add a debounce for my temp tracking. Set a 5 minute 'pause reporting' timer and variable. Otherwise I see a lot of temp reporting as the thermometer changes back and forth until it settles. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    IFTTT ideas (and issues)

    Sweet - thanks!! I wasn't making it up though - if you go here https://www.control4.com/stashes/z-wave there is a link to compatible devices that wants the dealer to log in. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Just got the Chowmain IFTTT driver - love it! 1) Set up my family room keypad to change color based on what game is on - orange for NHL, red for NHL etc. I suggested the TV just turn on so we could watch, but the wife nixed that. 2) Set a light in our morning scene to be on only when it is supposed to rain that day. That is trickier than I thought, seeing as how the prediction seems to push at a random time. 3) Set the lights to come on when I arrive home after dark. Set the HVAC to turn on if I come home in the middle of the day. 4) Set the HVAC to adjust based on the predicted high/low temp. 5) Logging the HVAC status to gdocs... which doesn't work yet. Questions: Anyone know what defines the 'variables' that you can see in the 'Value 1' section? I can't select things that would seem obvious, like the temperature from the Card Logic temp modules I have. IFTTT doesn't seem to trigger when the thermostats change state (i.e., perhaps it isn't 'reported' to C4). I would just replace the thermostat, but I have 4 of them and a zone controller... [edit... and for the love of all things sacred... you can't even see the list of supported zwave devices unless you are a dealer. It's like they go out of their way to be difficult.]

    Sonos question

    Ok... I'll take the bait. Sorry to hijack the thread, but it goes to the 'does it work' point. Do you switch room a lot? Most of the time when it freaks out is when I am listening one place, then add the new room I am going to, then drop the old room. This all happens in rapid succession, and I'd say half the time it gets confused and stops all the music. Also doesn't 'like' mixing Sonos connects with Sonos plays. Freaks out on occasion. Finally, adding connects to plays isn't always allowed (i.e., this is consistent, not occasional). And of course switching back and forth is insanely obnoxious. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sonos question

    I beg to differ. My system is now bat shit crazy. Things come on. Things go off. One minute it works, the next it doesn't. I actually thought this would be no big deal, but it just doesn't work anymore. I would revise the answer to say "it should work" ... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    iwatch control

    Suit yourself, but I recommend folks try it. I'm finding I use it way more than I thought. I have it on my standard watch face, quick to change volume or pause. You have to sort of decide what functions you want to use, otherwise you have to hunt and peck through the menus every time you open. Either leave it on media or lights.

    2017 Thoughts for Control4

    Perhaps I just lucked into a good dealer - but, here is my recommendation for folks like us who are picking a first-time or new dealer. 1) Be upfront - I told my dealer that I was going to be a diy person and he should tell me to go elsewhere if he didn't want to support it. I asked how he made his money - and how he was going to make money from me in particular. 2) I try to be prepared, and only hit him up when I really need something. This includes lumping together upgrades every fall - so he makes a little money and supports my changes. I try very hard to be patient - other clients are making him more money - they are going to be first. I live in a high cost metro area - and he is local. Of course, I would switch if it wasn't working out.
