  1. ambient light sensor issues

    I'm the only one?
  2. annex⁴ - Doorbird Driver - FREE

    Any update on this driver? Is it still free? Does it stream video to the T3 touchscreens? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Well that’s good to know. Any downsides of the annex driver? The driver I have, when it works, automatically rings on the T3 screens, brings up a live video feed, and allows me to speak to whoever is at the door through the T3 screens. Is this any different than how annex works? Do you know the cost of the driver, or if there is a free trial? Not very happy with the current driver I’m using. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I'm not 100% certain, but pretty sure it's Cinegration. I don't think the Annex4 driver allows the video to work on the touchscreens.
  5. Mac version of Control4?

    I've been using Boot Camp. But with a pretty new install, I've been making a lot of changes, and switching back and forth was getting annoying. Just switched recently to running Composer in Parallels, and it's working great!
  6. Turning on lights if sunrise > 0700

    Been curious, and since you brought it up...what exactly does C4 consider to be day time and night time? Is night time just after sunset and day time after sunrise?

    1005 - if that sounds right?
  8. My ambient light sensors on the keypad dimmers seem to be picking up the LED light from the buttons, making it so that they won't dim when it's dark. I can actually see the LED light by looking into the ambient light sensor. This seems to mostly be a problem on the switches that are 6-button, not so much when there are volume buttons at the bottom. Seems like a pretty big oversight by C4. Any workaround for this? I think I've read something about sharpie marker, but where, exactly, do you do that? Pictures would be helpful. Any more elegant fixes?
  9. Doorbird Experiences

    I've been pretty disappointed with the Doorbird so far. The app is okay, although I have had issues where they're gone before I get the notification - usually when I'm out of the house. However, the biggest disappointment is how unreliable it's been with the touchscreens. For a while, when initially set up, when you pressed the button, the touchscreens would ring and show up video right away. However, it was less than a day before this stopped working. Eventually, my installer got it working again, but it also stopped working again the same day. Currently, it almost never works. Not sure if it's the driver or something else, but the doorbird is hard wired and seems to be setup properly in C4.
  10. Different light levels at night

    Is there any reason I wouldn’t want him to do that? If not, why don’t dealers just program them that way to begin with? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. How to program an entry scene

    Thank you! Sounds like that would work. How do you put two if’s in there though? I haven’t done much programming with conditionals. Would it just be the two if statements in a row? Any nesting? Is there any good guide on how to program using conditionals? Like what needs to be nested? Where/when you need to insert stops? Etc? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I have a DoorBird and it’s currently set up to ring the wall mounted and portable C4 touchpads when someone rings the doorbell. It does this very inconsistently, probably something wrong with the driver, but my dealer is looking into it. However, just the doorbell tone in those two places is not enough. I have distributed audio in most rooms in the ceiling, and a sonos playbar in the master bedroom. I’d like the sound to play through some of those locations, but dealer says that it will have a delay due to amps having to turn on, possibly up to a minute. Any way around this? Keep amps on during the day? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I’d like to make an entry scene that activates when I come in to the house at night. I was planning to have the door opening trigger the scene (through contact sensor on the alarm, which was integrated). However, only want it to happen when I come home, not when leaving, and only at night. I’m thinking the best way to make that happen is to activate the scene after a garage door opens. Something along the lines of if garage door 2 opened within the past 5 minutes, and if the time is more than sunset+30 minutes, then when garage entry door is opened, activate entry scene. However, not sure the language I’d need to make that happen. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. My dealer has programmed many of my keypad buttons through connections, which I obviously can’t change. However, I’d like some of them to come on to different levels at night, such as full brightness on that particular load if button pressed during the day, but 50% brightness if after sunset. Is that something I can program with home composed, or something the dealer would have to do? Basically, don’t know if I can somehow program the system to do something different with the connections the dealer already made. Also, my dealer has mentioned that he could convert all the connections that control dimmers/keypads to programming, so I’d be able to see and edit everything. Any disadvantage to doing this?

  15. Give me your ideas.

    As mentioned above, I'd watch just to see how an established programmer does things, and to get more ideas on the type of things I could do with HE. I don't know anything about macros and I'm not at all comfortable with the if/then programming. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
