    RGBW Lights

    I use the Yeelight and the TP link stuff and it works awesome with the Chowmein drivers. I programmed it via Alexa and C4. Alexa turn on Blue...Alexa turn on Red or whatever. I have TP link bulbs in decorative lamps that turn on during the day bright white and then lower the color temp and brightness in stages later on in the night. Cool stuff.

    Subwoofer location

    A bit off topic but building out a room with a large closet behind the TV wall. Not much room for a large sub in the room itself but if I could put a giant sub behind the TV wall would it be heard/felt in the room? It is a non insulated wall...just sheet rock. Or would it just be a waste? Only other option is an in wall. Looked at the Triad Bronze in wall but in wall? Tiny box means tiny noise no? I have a large SVS sub to dedicate to the cause already.
  3. If you were going to do shades in the house would you do C4 lighting and pick a shade that is controlled or just go with Lutron for lighting AND shades across the board OR does it not matter?
  4. Is the Shairbridge driver reliable for this?
  5. Are there any other options for Apple Music besides Sonos?
  6. How do you handle the multiple Sonos Connects in the C4 navigator. If you are in the room you select the sonos you want to play? You'll see 3 of them in there and you are selecting 1 of them? How would another person in the house know which one your are using and not steal it away from you? If doing it this way I assume you don't or can't use the Sonos app when going through the matrix?
  7. Is panelized lighting recommended for jobs with 75+ switches? Won't switches pretty much get the job done? Electrician isn't into the idea of doing panelized since he has no experience with it. This is new construction. Homeowner also doesn't want to get locked in to the panel. (not that 75 switches isn't locking them in)
  8. I have a room (kitchen) that is missing from the list of room on Control4 portal? Why would that be?
  9. Really? So I can delete all of my volume programming. That is great.

    Intercom choice

    Which geolocation tools are you referring to? IFTTT? He can really just use his remote for the gate so not a big deal. Just because it can be done doesn't mean it should be done.

    Intercom choice

    For an intercom at a gate: Doorbird, 2N Doorstation or other? Looking to have a camera of course but the customer is also looking to have the gate open automatically when he arrives home? I see the 2N has a bluetooth module but it takes place of the keypad which I think would be a bad trade off since the keypad is necessary. Integration into C4 to get announcements and video popup on Navigators or touchscreens if possible

    Altice driver

    Anybody have a driver for this box. I thought I was setting up Optimum box and found a new Altice box on site.
  14. Sometimes I feel like I’m weird. This guy makes me feel normal. Thanks for that. If you want to be a DIY go buy a Dot and some Hue bulbs and have some fun otherwise just shut up already. Some people have way too much time on their hands. Hopefully I’ll be that lucky someday.
  15. I find the sound sound from my sonos connect to be much better than the streams coming out of my EA3. Both devices going into c4 4 channel Matrix amp. I just can’t get the ea3 even with tweaking the EQ to sound as good as the SONOS. I have KEF in ceiling speakers. With amazon echo integration sonos is used almost always in place of C4 audio.
