  1. I remember having a problem like this before and it was caused by the lighting system never reporting a light level of 100%. Control4 was expecting feedback from the system saying that a light was on at 100% to match the scene level, but the maximum level in the lighting system programming was 90%. So the 100% level on Control4 was actually 90% on the lighting system. I think I changed the max lighting level on the lighting system to 100% and this seemed to fix it. This was on an iLight system and not Lutron though.
  2. OK, so do you want the statement: Turn the Spa -> Déshumidificateur on To execute when the variable Déshumidificateur is true? If so then you need to drag the Turn the Spa -> Déshumidificateur on to the question mark (?) before the IF statement until a right arrow (->) appears below the cursor. This will embed the statement within the IF Like this one:
  3. Ah, you need to drag the Turn on Spa to the ? so it is nested within the IF statement
  4. We would need to see a screen capture of the programming script to make any sense of it.
  5. Yes, I'm not in the US, so brands may be different. But any electrical outlet will have ceiling mounted PIR sensors that can be connected to lights. The PIR needs a permanent 120V feed and the output goes to the light fixing. In the UK I may use: https://www.tlc-direct.co.uk/Products/TLPIRFL.html
  6. When it comes to closets etc I think we get a bit excited about putting Control4 or some integration in there. If it is just a closet then install a cheap ceiling mount motion sensor with a timer ... costs about $20 ... not connected to Control4 or anything else, just works when you go in and switches off when your not there.
  7. Ah OK, the tapes I have been using are 2700k on warm white. As you say I set them up as RGB full and W full for kitchen stuff.
  8. Isn't that two different tapes? RGBW is an RGB and a White chip combined which saves a lot of hassle. https://www.hiline-lighting.co.uk/gb/led-strips/62-rgbw-led-strip-24v-waterproof-5060440710018.html Also IP65 rated or waterproof (non-submerged) https://www.hiline-lighting.co.uk/gb/led-strips/179-rgbw-led-strip-60-leds-per-meter-5meter-roll-300leds-24v-waterproof-ip67-5060440710971.html For installations that require extra smooth light emission then I use diffusers. If there is anything you need to know about LED strip or controlling them then email the guy that owns HiLine, what he doesn't know about it isn't worth knowing.
  9. - Nothing wrong with the Bluestream matrix - the V2 matrix series is 4K HDCP 2.2, used them on a few projects and had no problems. Very good value for money! - Agree with the EA-1 in the Living Room, nice to have on screen interface in there. - The Home Theater has a SR-260, is it close enough to the Living Room to connect to the EA-1. Not good to rely on an EA-3 in a metal rack for ZigBee connection. - Interestingly I have been hearing rumours that Legrand NuVo are planning Apple Music integration ... but if it's anything Apple that could be a loooooong time. Personally I think NuVo has the best integration with C4 at the moment. I use it and really like it, sounds better than Sonos too (in my opinion, but it is playing through Linn Katans)
  10. I would like to be able to add notes to Programming. Sometimes I forget why I did something. If we had a notes panel below the Script window that would be great.
  11. Thanks Matt, I reckon it just isn't in the driver. I will try and find the IP command and build a mini-driver for it.
  12. I'm in the UK and pretty much exclusively use https://www.hiline-lighting.co.uk/gb/ Don't know if the products are available in the US, but should give you an idea of what to look for. The specific strips I use for warm white: https://www.hiline-lighting.co.uk/gb/led-strips/224-warm-white-led-strip-smd3528-cri80-24v-10w-ip65-5060440711299.html I always go with 24V strip. If you are looking for RGB, then definitely go for RGB-W tape instead of RGB. It is very difficult to reproduce warm white with RGB tape. As for control, I would look at mains dimmable power supplies for single colour and DMX for RGB-W. Houselogix have a great driver for DMX. https://www.houselogix.com/shop/advanced-dmx
  13. The ropes shine in all directions, but are not as consistent as a directional strip. That's why I would try it out before committing and fitting it, then firing it up. The LEDs are also 1 inch apart, the LED strips I use have 120 LEDs per metre (3 LEDs per inch) and look more like a constant light source along the entire length. I find rope LEDs look a bit like Christmas lights
  14. One thing to consider is that these ropes are omni-directional, so they don't produce such a consistent directional illumination as an LED strip produces.
