  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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?

  6. 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

    What does that mean?
  8. CEDIA 2017

    Care to elaborate? Specifically, I'm having a new C4 system installed this week (they're at the new house working on it as I type). Am I going to be disappointed that it was installed a week before a huge announcement? If there is a major software change, has C4 historically updated people for free who just recently installed?
