    Luma IP Cameras/NVR PSA

    Yes, I agree a desktop app will be nice. On a side note, the safari plugin doesn't work on Mojave. It works on all previous versions of the macOS though.

    Not yet. My understanding is January 2019 and it will be a standalone desktop app Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Yes, it is definitely on the same version. Based on a search of the forums, it seems like this issue is not that unusual with the T3 screens...several other people have stated their T3s have had issues with the bottom portion of the touch screens. Pretty disappointed if my only option is to buy another one at this point. Certainly a little hesitant. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I wrote this past week about an issue I was having with the screen saver on one of my T3 In wall 10” touchscreens randomly waking up even though no one touches it or is even close to it. Turns out there are bigger problems with the device. When I select lighting on the screen, the adaptive phase dimmer, which is at the bottom left hand corner of the screen, starts turning on and off without me ever touching anything. In addition, when I try to change the screen saver, the screen in which you select what type of screen saver you want will pop up, but then randomly go away a couple secs later without me touching anything. Of course the T3 is 2.5 years old, so it’s out of the warranty period, which is extremely irritating, as this isn’t the first c4 device I’ve had fail (although it’s the first one to be out of the warranty period). I’ve tried factory resetting the device multiple times, and it doesn’t make a difference, so it seems like something in the device is on the fritz. Has anyone else had this type of issue with their T3s? I’m guessing my only option is to buy a new one at this point, but I don’t want to do it if they are prone to breaking/not lasting very long.

    T3 Touchscreens

    Has anyone had any issues with the screen savers on their T3 touchscreens? I have a total of three T3 screens. All three of the screens are setup to go to a blank screensaver within 30 seconds on inactivity. This works perfectly for two of the T3s, but on one of them, the screen will go to sleep and then "wake up" randomly on its own (usually within 15 or 20 seconds after it goes to sleep) without anything touching it. This just started happening within the past week. I've tried rebooting the device, cleaning the screen, and checking the settings, and I can't figure out what is causing this to happen. The touchscreen works fine otherwise, so it's hard for me to believe it's going bad, but I guess anything is possible. If anyone knows how to fix this issue, or has any ideas, please let me know. It's pretty annoying. Thanks in advance!
  7. HC-800 Flawless condition (w/ rack ears) works perfectly. Feel free to PM me with reasonable offers.

    EA-1/HC-250

    All, I currently have two HC-250s as a part of my c4 system. The HC-250s are being used solely as zigbee mesh APs. If I have an EA-5 as the primary controller, given my use case for the HC-250s, is there any real benefit to upgrading the HC 250s to EA-1s? Obviously, at some point, possibly soon, the HC-250s won’t support the newest features in an os update from c4. Clearly, if I was using an HC-250 as the main controller that would be a problem/limit my system, but if I’m just using the HC-250s as zigbee APs, I’m thinking it won’t matter/negatively impact my system in any manner. I don’t see my usage of the HC-250s changing in any manner either. Just trying to determine whether it makes sense upgrading the HC-250s to EA-1s at this point. I’m willing to spend the money if it makes sense, but also don’t want to spend money needlessly if it won’t make any difference in my system or really affect it in the future. Any input/thoughts would be much appreciated. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. All, Does anyone have any experience integrating Wyrestorm products, such as one of their 4k matrixes into control4? If so, does it work well/are there any issues such as input or video lag, etc? My father just bought some Wyrestorm items and he think he wants to integrate them into c4, so just want to make sure there aren't any known issues with their c4 drivers/integration before he spends money buying a controller. Also, on a side note, I'm curious as to what everyone thinks in terms of the type of controller he should get. Most likely, he would be integrating 8 TVs, 2-3 locks, 8-10 light switches, and 11 audio zones. He may eventually add garage door and a door station if he likes c4. I'm fairly certain the EA-5 makes the most sense, but am curious as to everyone's thoughts. Thanks in advance, Steven

    Lol, they weren’t the only ones who didn’t realize the plugins were being eliminated and they acknowledged the issue and are fixing it. Again, apple’s own tech support guys didn’t even know about the plugins being eliminated, so I think you’re being a little harsh in this situation. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Luma 700 camera.

    I would definitely make sure you removed all the plastic and have everything setup correctly. One of those pictures definitely looks like it is a dome camera, because that is definitely reflection, and it can be an issue if a dome is not installed correctly (regardless of brand). The bullets don't have the reflection issue in my experience. With that being said, I've never had an issue with the luma domes. Your dealer just needs to call snap av tech support.

    Luma IP Cameras/NVR PSA

    The Luma cameras are rock solid. There has been a lot of advancements in the technology since your wire path system was installed. I can tell you from personal experience that Luma 700 bullets provide outstanding resolution. The 700s and the 500s are 4mp cameras. The 300 series is 2mp, so not quite as good, but not a huge difference, and the quality is still excellent. When you pair these cameras with the new NVR 510, which has a 4k hdmi output, you can run the cameras into a video matrix for 4k distribution of the cameras throughout a system. When you couple the quality of the cameras, with the motion/notification settings and other options on the Luma NVRs, I'm not sure you will find a more versatile and stable security system around. In my personal opinion, you can't go wrong with the Luma system. I have never had a camera go out since I installed them. Also, SnapAV sent out a notice very soon after my original post about the plugin issue saying that they were aware of it, and would have a fix out within the next couple weeks. I think a lot of companies were blind sided by Apple basically eliminating plugins....one of the apple tech support guys I spoke to about the issue didn't even know they had essentially discontinued them in Mojave. The camera system isn't affected at all by this issue anyway. It only matters if you are trying to tweak technical settings and motion alerts, and don't have access to internet explorer on a pc. If you have a mac, and run parallels on Mojave, you can still access the backend of the system without a problem. The Luma plugin still works on all prior Mac OS, since they all support plugins. Hope this helps answer your questions!
  14. All, I currently have three HVAC zones in my house (basically one for each level of the home). Every part of the basement and first floor are always comfortable. There are three bedrooms on the second floor, including the master. The master is always comfortable, but the two other bedrooms are definitely noticeably colder, and since we now have a child living in one, I've decided I need to put the two other rooms on their own zone. Currently each zone is controlled by the most recent Aprilaire C4 wireless thermostat, and the temperature of each floor is determined by a hardwired remote sensor. The sensor for the second floor is near the door in the master bedroom, which may have something to do with the other rooms on that floor being noticeably colder (although I am 99% sure that the issue with one of the rooms is that it is directly across from an open field with no obstructions in the way to kill the wind, which gets pretty bad in the winter time given that our development is on top of a hill - it's the only room in the house the faces the open field other than the dining room, which is open to all other parts of the house). Anyway, adding another zone should be relatively easy given the basement is unfinished, but what I'm trying to determine is the best thermostat to use. My initial gut reaction is to go with the Aprilaire again, and simply run another remote temperature sensor to the coldest room, but ideally, I would really like to have a temperature sensor in both of the other rooms on the second floor, and have the thermostat average them, so that one room isn't completely dependent upon the temp of the other room. I know the ecobee has wireless remote temperature sensors, so that is certainly an option, but I'm not crazy about the idea of having the sensors run on a battery (even if they last forever). I also would prefer that the sensors be mounted on the wall. With that being said, I know the ecobee sensors will do exactly what I want. Does anyone have any experience with the ecobee system, and if so, what are your thoughts? Does it work flawlessly? My main question with the aprilaire thermostat is whether I can run two remote temperature sensors to it and have the thermostat average them. I believe the answer is yes, but I need to confirm. If that is the case, it will definitely be more work, as I would have to run the wires, but I think it may be worth it. The other aprilaire thermostats I have at the moment have been flawless. Any thoughts/recommendations based on your experiences with ecobee vs aprilaire thermostats would be greatly appreciated. Thank in advance!
