    Q Motion Ramp Rates

    Lutron has a patent on the hem bar alignment technology. Rarely install shades other than Lutron but interested as well if this can be imitated with programming.

    Non c4 - wiring issue

    You did the right thing: tested multiple cables from different manufacturers with the same result; bad tester.

    Native integrated stereo amp list

    We install the their Aventage series; the rx-a880 and move up from there as needs dictate. IP and serial control capable. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Native integrated stereo amp list

    With the exception of Anthem, have installed all the major brands and Yamaha has proven to be most reliable for us. Integration is rock solid. It's also notable that the company stays on top of the constantly moving and irritating HDMI standards, makes actual instruments and all sorts of musical electronics, isn't owned or run by venture capitalists like some others, and was established over 130 years ago.

    HDMI Repair Kit

    Thank goodness I haven't had to resort to this on any of my projects but I've heard that you can cut off the ends of an HDMI cable and use it as a CAT5 for HDMI extenders if running a new cable isn't an option. Curious if any one has had to resort to that and what the outcome was. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

  9. I'm not a security dealer but was able to program a DSC PC1832 panel for my sister with the help of the YouTube video at the following link: I installed the Envisalink module for self monitoring and she's happy with it : http://www.eyezon.com/?page_id=176 No bells and whistles with that setup but good for lower budget solutions.

    Lutron RadioRA2 vs C4

    Essentials also allows you to retrieve the programming from the main repeater if it's on a minimum firmware version; I believe 6.0. EDIT: Meant to say inclusive allowed program extraction if repeater is on ver 6 or higher. [mention=141082]Cartnj[/mention], was unaware that had trickled down to Essentials as well.

    +1 A manufacturer doesn't get my business when they define support the way Ubiquiti does. I find it ironic that there are plenty of dealers that chuckle and chide clients that use Geek Squad but don't see some parallel with using Ubiquiti. Sent from my smartphone using Tapatalk

    Zigbee Mesh Strength

    At C4 training it was mentioned that outlet dimmers/switches have poor zigbee coverage while the extenders have great coverage. Sent from my smartphone using Tapatalk

    Wattbox WTF

    +1 Every single 600 we installed has eventually failed including the ones they said weren't part of the recall. Snap did the right thing and replaced them with 700's. Sent from my smartphone using Tapatalk

    Why pigtails rather than terminals?

    In tight spots these wire connectors are helpful: IdealWireConnectors
