    Smoke Detectors

    I use nest
  3. it will work to give you access to your control4 system, however the throughput on those are not good. just installed it "supplied by customer" and in the end after hours of setup with amplifi tech support we got the best performance we could in a 2500sqft home. all said and done I went and showed the homeowner the link speeds, download speeds, total throughput they weren't happy. we placed 4 of the repeaters, 2 of which connected directly with the main access point and the other 2 to the repeaters. while phones and laptop showed full connection bars and the repeaters 3 lights each, throughput was not good. im sure they will be returning and we will be returning with proper access points, most likely Araknis

  6. Use an input on tv that has the least bells and whistles
  7. if you want to see exact differences research at www.snapav.com
  8. use araknis all the time, its very solid,easy to setup and maintain. you wont be sorry.
  9. honestly buying a wifi-router combo isn't the best for an automated home. it could be your bottleneck. what you want is a routers processor do all the routing, let a switch take the load and do all the switchin, let the processing power of any router do its job. add in a few waps, I would do 1 in top floor and 1 in basement on opposite sides of the house about 25' from the side of the house this way most of your signal is in your houses and not filling your side yards, and see how your coverage is on the 1st floor. adjust output power on waps if needed or add a 3rd if needed. shouldn't really need a 3rd though in a 3k square foot house, but if theres is a lot of metal. or concrete you may need 1 wap per floor.

    Software Upgrade Cost

    being charged an hour time for the upgrade is fair, there is the 15 minute or so upgrade time, login time, and test time, Run through all the devices in composer to make make sure everything is good.

    Video Distribution in new house

    There is quite a bit of 4k if you search for it, and atmos is just a standard, get the best quality sound you can get, whenever you can get it.

    its pretty loud and pushes speakers well has good depth however if you barely want to hear the person talking next to you then this amp isn't for you
  20. Lutron Caseta is a solid choice for dimmers and switches, much cheaper.
  21. hit list on the remote, scroll left or right through rooms, find the room and there you go
  22. Some situations require the use of ARC, Feeding sound from the TV back to the AVR because a customer doesn't want an, apple TV, Roku et,,,,, and wants to use the TV gui. Dolby Atmos is not passed through optical so you are stuck using ARC from the TV to AVR.
  23. I use the epic driver, I sometimes get the same message of such and such is not responding,so i ask alexa to discover devices but it never fixes it, but if I go into composer, hit send discovery and then do alexa discover devices it fixes it every time. sometimes I can go weeks at a time without any issues. I'm running latest firmware, Ea3 about 40 devices total on my system, everything is hardwired for network.
