Watch multiple Video Sources (TV, Foxtel/Cable TV, DVD, Apple TV) in Home Theatre (Projector with full atmos audio), Living Area, Kids Play Room and Main Bedroom (4 Video zones) 3. Video Intercom 4. Security POE Camera Setup (4 external camera, 2 internal) All of the above controllable via remote/ipad/iphone - Control4 Systems I've attached a diagram of the setup (without security cameras) Room by Room Gear; Home Theatre; 5.1.4 Speakers - mix of B&W and Paradigm Epson ls10000 Projetor SR260 Remote Garage: 5 HEOS Amps to connected to 5 pairs of ceiling speakers in each of the 5 audio zones around the house Lots of network equipment (48 port switch, 8 port POE switch, wifi router, telco modem) Oppo DVD Player UDP 203 (connected to hdmi matrix) Apple TV (connected to hdmi matrix) Control4 EA3 Controller (Main controller) Marantz 7011 AVR (with inbulit HEOS with room for extra 2 zones) Bluestream 4x4 HDMI Matrix - still not sure if I need this or if I should get a control4 version capable of 4k Living Room Samsung or LG 75 Inch 4K TV (Still havent decided on brand - not sure which works best with Control4) Pair Paradigm Speakers connect to HEOS Amp in Garage Apple TV + Remote Control4 EA1 + SR260 Remote (this is in addition to EA3 located in garage, idea is for the additional controler is for the remote located in living areas to be close to a control unit) Front Door Ring Intercomm August Doorlock & August Keypad Kids Toy Room Old Pioneer Plasma TV - this thing is still a god! PS4 Pioneer DVD Player Main Bedroom - pre wired for future expansion Outdoor Room - Pair Paradigm Speakers connect to HEOS Amp in Garage Dining Room - Pair Paradigm Speakers connect to HEOS Amp in Garage Kitchen Room - Pair Paradigm Speakers connect to HEOS Amp in Garage Now the questions: 1. HEOS or Sonos? What works best with Control4 2. Control4 Audio Matrix ??? Since I need 5 audio zones (currently planned with multiple HEOS amps) would I be better of with control4 audio matrix? 3. Apple Music - Cloud - Itunes Match - how to play with Control4 3. LG or Samsumg TV's? Which best integrates with Control4 4. Does Ring work well with Control4 5. Does August work well with Control4 6. Will Control4 work with PS4 7.
