    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

  3. 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

    Envisalink 4

    Did the same install for my sis-in-law; no integration, she's very happy with it. Sent from my smartphone using Tapatalk
  11. At one point the OP notes that the only way to make calls is via Wi-Fi. To clarify: was this how calls were always made due to poor cell coverage or has this become the go-to since the WISP service started? Sent from my smartphone using Tapatalk
  12. Although all this cheerleading may sound nice, what's most likely is that he's installed unaltered equipment for its intended purpose that needs to abide by FCC regulations anyway. Further, to suggest that a carrier will help now, ignores the fact that they haven't been providing good coverage in this area to begin with. Sent from my smartphone using Tapatalk
  13. A cell phone booster system can take the cellular signal it receives and make it available in other areas. It cannot receive a poor cellular signal and make it better; a mistaken assumption by many that leads to disappointment. Poor signal in means poor signal out. A cellular signal assessment/survey is critical to aligning expectations with what is possible. Sent from my smartphone using Tapatalk
  14. No need for CAPS, you've made that point abundantly clear, just trying to help. If you're relying on WiFi for your mobile service then your network system is a very relevant question and its configuration is most likely the easiest way to resolve the issue.

  15. Bummer they're not willing to work with you. What's you're network config? Sent from my smartphone using Tapatalk
