  1. Asking because if have an opportunity to buy a NIB item off eBay that dealer would load when able, I'd want to at least check that it powers up and can register an IP from the router
  2. Would be secondary. Thanks...I removed dimmer from question above after I realized that was not possible.
  3. Will a C4 IP device (say an EA-1) show up with an IP on my network or as a read-only item in Composer HE, if I connect it to the network prior to a dealer adding the device into the project?

    Audio Choice for two zone with EA-5

    Perfect...I'm figuring either an NAS or something similar may be the way to augment streaming capability down the line.

    Audio Choice for two zone with EA-5

    Now thats cool news. And very good to know!
  7. So i have a simple audio arrangement with two pair hardwired speakers and want independent audio. Have an EA-5 but have not chosen an amp yet. If feasible, is there a cost-effective way to use the EA5 for stereo audio distro to those two zones or should I add a combo switch/amp? I dont think id be expanding hardwire speakers in future. maybe wireless speaker points most streaming is via amazon which i guess is not part of native capability of the controller But I can switch to whatever is native if needed

    That's fair. But this did follow an extended sitdown and multiple interactions where I asked questions and laid out what I use, and where I plan to get to. One example is SONOS was being pushed as an amp solution for our two rooms of wired speakers, and when I asked about integration given the latest API baseline, and asked for a comparison with a TRIAD or similar solution, I got crickets. The install tech was highly capable, but the integrator-dealer maybe is not very C4 savvy, so we have a lack of unified communication. You are right. I will fix that part.

    For #1 I maybe should have known that was not a fair public forum question, but how about is it typical/sufficient to consider iOS interfaces as a suitable alternative to an integrated remote? I'm not getting what is integrated about this that I couldn't have done myself. And right now it seems the only thing preventing me from doing it myself is permissions.

    Thanks...Just logged into the controller via my PC...seems OS is 2.10.2. so my mistake. As for number 2...yes it didnt make sense to me either. I know these are broad questions without a lot of context, so even limited feedback appreciated.

    Hello, New to C4 and the forums. Have many questions, but will try to condense to a few main basic ones. Advice appreciated. System install was part of new construction. EA-5, network switch, dimmers, camera pre wires, lots of structured hard wiring, garage etc. 1. Although I got an EA-5 "Entertainment Bundle", it only included the controller. No remote. Is it typical for the remote to be an add-on for a $3800 bundle of an EA-5 in your experience? 2. None of my sources were added to the system (Somfy MyLink for window shades, Apple TV, BluRay Disc, etc) and the reason I was given was that's only if I have it in multiple rooms...so I'd have to buy another EA-1 to do that? Can I add those devices? 3. Why would I need(or how would I exploit) the RG-6 and HDMI cables coupled with Cat6/5e in various rooms 4. The OS was just installed and is on 2.1. Is that the latest version?
