    SR260 Remotes

    I hear you. It just seems strange, and sucks they're $200. Not sure I want to replace them given they work fine.

    SR260 Remotes

    Thanks for the input. It's possible the one pictured was dropped, but I assure you the second remote this just happened to was not dropped.

    SR260 Remotes

    Has anyone else had an issue with plastic pieces of side portion of the SR260 remotes randomly breaking off? This has now happened to two different remotes. At first I thought maybe someone had dropped it, but I know that isn't the case with the second one this has happened to...pretty unhappy about it, given the price of these things. When I approached my local dealer about it, he said it wasn't covered under warranty and would cost $200 to replace it...clearly not worth it given that the remotes still work, but these remotes shouldn't be doing this. Curious if anyone else has had similar issues?

    DS2 LAN Interface

    Ok, so maybe I am on the correct version. Thanks @Gary Leeds UK I don't believe it's a network issue, because I have other smtp mail server triggers setup on other devices, and they work fine. Hmmmm....anyone got any ideas?

    DS2 LAN Interface

    Everything is the same except for the boot loader. Not sure if that would make a difference or not...My boot loader is 2.8.0.17.1 Do you have a my2n tab, when you login to the DS2 interface using its ip address?
  10. For various reasons, I feel like my DS2 is running a different version of the LAN interface than it should be...my guess is the it is running a version intended for the 2n IP Verso. The lan interface has a section that tries to connect me to the 2n cloud, and every time I turn it off, it seems to automatically connect again shortly thereafter. The DS2 works fine with respect to all TS3s in the house when the doorbell on the DS2 is pushed, but I can't for the life of me get the e-mail notifications to work anymore. Everything was working fine with the e-mail notifications and then all of a sudden stopped. I doubled checked the login credentials, etc, and it still doesn't make a difference. It says "Test E-mail Failure" every time i try to send a test e-mail. I think this has something to do with the 2N version of the lAN Interface. I tried factory resetting the DS2 and the lan software, and it still doesn't make a difference. Again, I'm guessing the "my 2n" cloud link shouldn't be present. I think this stems from a while back when I tried to test out the 2n mobile intercom. Does anyone know how to fix this/if there is a way to get the correct version of the DS2 C4 lan interface? Perhaps the boot loader version is different? The firmware in composer for the DS2 is uptodate, and I did autoconfig everything once the factory reset was complete. I know some people have successfully set up the 2n intercom mobile app with the DS2, but I was never able to get it to work. Since everything was working after I gave up trying, I thought I had restored everything to its original state, but now I'm thinking maybe I didn't, and the firmware version on the ds2 is still the version for the 2n ip verso...Any suggestions/assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Lol, somehow I knew you would understand! It is so simple! In all seriousness though, I think I’m going to start using the “it’s complicated and still in beta” excuse when my wife asks me why I haven’t done things around the house. I wonder how long that will last before she gets a new husband [emoji4] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Control4 Intercom Anywhere App

    Lol, you have a point, however if C4 would simply come out with highly requested features on a more frequent and timely basis, none of this would be an issue, just as it isn’t for many other companies in the tech industry. I don’t see how it being hard is really an excuse when other companies have a technology already Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I think you may be missing my point....yes, C4 is one of the best home automation platforms on the market at this moment. Doesn't mean it will stay that way going forward if they don't innovate, offer something truly unique/different, or at the very least keep the platform updated with the latest in mass marketed tech hardware/software. You cite the solid growth, etc., but C4 also hasn't had this many competitors in the past. The home automation market has grown and continues to grow rapidly now, so sustaining the same success, growth, etc. is going to be much more difficult going forward. Hence, my lack of faith given all of the foregoing.

    They have a platform that can integrate a significant amount, but certainly not everything. With that being said, many other companies are building a platform that integrate other company products into one platform in addition to their own products. From a innovation/progress standpoint, I just haven't seen them do anything that makes me think their company model is going to be sustainable over the long haul if they continue down this path....for example, alexa integration is a fun and great feature to have, but certainly nothing that sets c4 apart or blows consumers away....same for "if/then" feature. Yes, the geo location is absolutely fantastic through the Homekit Driver Josh created, but that clearly isn't c4's doing.

    Still no word...? C4's silence on pretty much everything really makes me question this company's trajectory. I love my C4 system, however, Apple and some others are definitely starting to catch up. I see new, very solidly built and reliable, devices released all the time that integrate with HomeKit, and in some cases, do things that C4 can't even do (e.g. reliable geo-location based tracking/automation). Obviously, as many have pointed out, Apple is a huge company with deep pockets and significant amounts of money in R&D in comparison to C4, but it doesn't change the fact that Apple Homekit is gaining traction as a much cheaper alternative to C4 with many comparable features (including the ability to integrate everything into one app). One of the main differences currently is that Homekit doesn't have the ability to do much, if anything, with respect to control of av products, like C4 does. As of right now, that is a big difference and can justify the exclusiveness and premium that C4 offers. With that being said, however, I believe it's only a matter of time before Apple starts exploring down the AV route for Homekit, which would cause major issues for C4. It's not something that will happen overnight, but I won't be surprised if/when it happens. In my mind, C4 has one of two options in order to continue to set themselves apart from Apple Homekit and product manufacturers that offer products which integrate with it: (1) start throwing tons of money at R&D (or acquiring cutting edge companies) and continually and frequentlycome out with new cutting edge, innovative and truly useful software and hardware that keep it far ahead of AND distinct from other home automation platforms that just plain work seamlessly; or (2) completely change its business model in a manner that makes it more affordable/accessible and more direct to consumers/end users. I would love for nothing more than to see option 1 be the route C4 goes, but honestly I don't have much faith in them at this point. The c4 intercom app is a prime example of the reason I have very little faith and why I think others are getting frustrated as well. They announce a product (which many indirect competitors have had for a while), say its in beta at the time of announcement, and then almost 6 months go by without a peep. I've never seen a beta last this long, especially without any updates. Meanwhile, the company that makes the product (the door station) for C4 has had intercom app out for a while, so clearly it's not some obscure new innovative technology. It's extremely disappointing and, in my mind either indicates a lack of the proper resources (i.e. skilled coders, technicians, money, etc.), leadership from executives, or all of the above. Regardless of the reason, the rate of innovation, updates, and new product releases does not bode well for the future of this company. I really hope something changes and soon.
