  1. I have been messing around with When - Then tonight. I like that C4 thought to add the ability to put motion sensors in the when section but they forgot to add a timer for then. Just giving my thoughts. As I tested it, I realized that my wife would get really pissed at me if every time she walked in a room the lights turned off on her when she stopped moving. IMHO, it needs to be: When no motion -- then after 15 (vairiable) minutes turn the X lights off.
  2. 6 rooms and six echo devices

    Ok, I pulled it down and an cooking with gas now. A question comes to mind. Since I would essentially have the same skills defined, is there a way to export the defined skills and import them back in so as to not have to re-add them back in the next five rooms? Maybe I am just trying to be lazy.
  3. 6 rooms and six echo devices

    I have the epic driver though I think It's the original one. I will reach out and request the update.
  4. When the echo first came out, someone posted a fairly detailed post about how he/she configured the echo so that the voice commands were the same in every room thus not having to denote the room name in the voice command. Can anyone point me to that post? I am unable to find it. If not, does anyone have advice or a whitepaper reference on how to integrate the echo into a multiroom c4 environment? I really would like to be in the living room and just say: Alexa, turn the lights on or be in the kitchen and say the same command there and the lights come on in the kitchen. Appreciate your feedback in advance
  5. Wifi Cameras

    Yes, Blue Iris works with the nest cameras and then using the BI driver in c4 you can see your nest cameras. Here's the thing, in order to get the rtmp string, you have to change the camera policy on the nest site to be publicly available, You still need to know the url but in my opinion it's a security issue.
  6. Yale Lock issue

    So this seems to be isolated to one door. The back door works fine. I changed the batteries last week but have just changed them again and will reboot c4 in case it's a zigbee issue. more to follow.
  7. I seem to be having a curious problem. We have a code for our son and our maids. The codes are no longer working for those two users. I have deleted the users from the system via the touch screen and re-added them but they still don't work. I also tried from the c4 app on my phone and the users still don't work. I also went in and changed my code from the c4 app and the new code worked like a charm. Anyone have any thoughts here?
  8. Has anyone written a driver to integrate Nest Cams into C4? I understand you can add them to Blue Iris but I am wondering if there has been any movement for direct integration. Thanks in advance.
  9. Generators

    Is there any drivers out there to monitor a generator? I have a Generac 22kw along with the monitoring service. I would love to be able to see the status of my generator from c4. Thoughts?
  10. I would be happy to help you test your wiwo driver.  I am currently using the wiwo devices to control a few lamps and a stand of lights on our patio.

      Thanks for the offer.  We already have enough beta testers.  The driver should come out next week.

  11. I have a bluebolt power device that sits on my network. I have routers, switches and C4 director plugged into them. The bluebolt can be configured to ping IP addresses and if they fail to respond it will text me and or recycle the power to the socket. I also have it set to recycle the power to the c4 controller if it goes down for more than 20 min.
  12. yamaha Firmware help

    Yamaha reached out to me and offered me the 1.8 firmware that has not been released yet. I have it on two of the units and have had a ping /t running for roughly 90 minutes without interruption. crossing my fingers this works.
  13. I have been talking to Yamaha about this the last two weeks. They sent me the 1.8 firmware for the rx-a730 which has not been released yet to try. I created a separate vlan on my network that did not allow broadcast traffic and the receivers still crapped out, all 4 of them. I'll let you know if I have any luck with the 1.8 firmware.
  14. Can anyone point me in the direction of the firmware archive for yamaha? I have 4 rx-a730's that will not stay on the network for longer then an hour (my 1010 works just fine) after that I have to unplug them to get them back online. I went into advanced setup and forced a firmware update as I was getting a version error. I am going to try an upgrade it again using a USB stick but would like to know where I can get the previous version. Can anyone please help?
  15. Does anyone have an experience with the Genesis Movie Server? I am interested in opinions. I am looking to put one in with an extra zone player.
