  1. found it I think. Thanks
  2. when I search for "Security Courtesy Light" I get nothing specific.
  3. BTW where is this "Security Light Driver" dcovach? I've looked and can't find it
  4. weird...not sure how but the topic got duplicated ACTIVE TOPIC:
  5. NOTE: I moved the "Take Snapshot" from the Timer to the first thing done when motion is detected. Video of the issue: https://www.dropbox.com/s/raq7zrp06myrzxk/Video Mar 24%2C 2 12 59 PM.mov?dl=0
  6. Here's another tidbit of crazy info about this craziness. If I look at the advanced lighting scenes, I can see the snapshot SHOULD be working, as the lighting scene that is ACTIVE is not actually active. Example, if the "Master Lamps" scene is on prior to the FrontDoorNotification be executed, I can see that the "z_FlashLights" scene is activated for the duration of the FrontDoorNotification Timer, and then it re-activates the "Master Lamps" scene...but it's not actually doing it, it just says it's active. If I physically click the "Active Scene" button on the lighting scene that is supposedly already active, it will then activate correctly.
  7. Can anyone tell me why this doesn't work? I start a "FrontDoorNotification" timer when someone walks up to my front door, play announcement, flash lights, etc. When the timer starts I take a snapshot...when timer ends I do a recall...but it doesn't work.

    Pics before I break the racks down and move

    This seems waaaay out of my ability, but I do have questions if you have time/want to answer. If not, no worries, as I can't imagine being able to do what you've done. 1) Why connect doorbell direct to controller? What does this do for you? 2) What does the Kodi Driver do for you for this "announcement" use case? 3) What cable box allows text? I have Directv and can't find that functionality 4) I assume you use the polly text to speech and do not use the C4 Announcement functionality at all? Just custom programming on events? 5) How are you keeping multi room announcements in sync? Mine are always just a bit off. Thanks a ton...and I'm sooo jealous, you have an amazing setup.
  10. Thanks so much for the suggestion, I downloaded the snapshot driver and it seems to work pretty good, with limited testing. I'm still not 100% sure why the TV turns off when an announcement is played though. The most user friendly way seems like the show would pause, the announcement play, then the show resume, but for me the TV shuts all the way down, announcement plays, the TV comes back on. But all in all, it works as far as I can tell. Thanks again
  11. Here's what I'm dealing with: I have a motion detector installed at my front door to receive an announcement when someone approaches my front door. I use the C4 generic announcement and play if over 3 separate rooms over my sonos speakers. The thing my family HATES is that when watching a show (using the same sonos speakers), and someone comes to the front door, the announcement goes off and the sonos plays the announcement, but the TV stops playing the show and it takes a good 3-4 minutes to get back to the show, and rewind to where they were. Any brilliant ideas on how to handle this in a more natural, less irritating, way? Many thanks

    iHeart Radio - Troubleshooting

    So I figured it out. iHeartRadio allows you to "Save Station" and "Save Artists"...and it's only the items in "Save Station" that shows up in composer. So rus_teee can you confirm that they are "Stations" and not "Artists" that you have saved on you account? Maybe that's the issue for you?

    iHeart Radio - Troubleshooting

    I am having the same issue. @msgreenf there is no Action tab for the iHeartRadio driver. crazy enough I have 3 stations to choose from, but in iheart.com, the "My Stations" has 5+. It appears to be something with refreshing the list...no sure.
