    2017 Thoughts for Control4

    So, as someone who’s not an investor or customer what are you trying to accomplish? Convincing people on the forum of control4’s demise seems unlikely.
  2. Picked up some outdoor string lights for my patio at Costco. Is there a smart outlet that would be outdoor rated to use with something like this so I can have more control than just plugging and unplugging them every time?

    Ecobee driver - Native now

    Anything to migrate if we already have the blackwire driver?

    WTB - C4-KA-WH

    Looking for 3 of these in white to complete some 3 and 4 way circuits I just added dimmers for Looking for WH color, from what I understand you can't get the color change kits for these and looking to match the dimmers and keypads I have now. PM me with offers.
  7. I get the appeal of one app, but sometimes it doesn’t compare to the real thing. I like Tidal being inside the C4 interface but it’s really limiting when I just see 4 versions of the same album and I just have to guess the master, edit, explicit etc versions. Any word on an update to improve this? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. So do you plan to open your phone for the control4 app instead of the visor button in the future? I feel like i'm missing something since that doesn't seem too safe. This is also more button clicks moving the app to room garage, security, and then the door instead of something that is one button click now.
  9. I haven't got into integrated motion sensors yet, but for room like the garage and mudroom when walking in it made more sense for me to go with a simple switch like this. C4 integration didn't really make sense, just because it should always turn on and off in the garage and no need for it to be "smart". Same in mudroom walking in. Nothing smart, just always motion detects when you walk in to turn the lights on. As far at the actual garage integration, I'm also interested after the free myQ driver broke last year. I'm still not really convinced $200 to integrate the driver is worth the value IMO I just don't use it that often, but the nice thing is having the front door keypad open the door. I do have some extra wires run in my attic above the garage I could use to run back to the HC800. If I have wires available for the relays is there a way to hard wire and not use the MyQ driver or is the relay WITH the MyQ driver for better polling? I'm still confused on the setup with relays. I'd like to figure out the contact relay solution so its directly integrated and not rely on a third party driver and broken API's
  10. What is the KA-WH used for? Would that be a traveler for a 3-way or something used in panelized lighting?
  11. As always, thanks for the help everyone! Glad to know this should be a painless upgrade That was easy
  12. Something that’s in pro after they’re identified in the project? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I know I’ll have to go through the dealer to add to the project, but if you’re swapping and upgrading dimmers is there an easy way to keep programming from button taps and macros linked to the new dimmers the same way? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Like other's suggested, find a local showroom. Play around with the demo and it will all make a lot more sense. They might try to sell you an EA1 for every room and things you don't need, but you'll at least start to see how everything ties in so you can make better decisions. Get all your wiring out of the way and don't regret anything in the initial build. C4 dimmers or lutron or whatever are probably the easiest to retro later.
