    Controlling new TV through CAT5

    Why didn't I think of that! So simple! My inexperience is showing. Thank you, I appreciate it.

    Controlling new TV through CAT5

    Vizio 80 inch from about 3-5 years ago. It's a smart tv but probably one of the earlier adopters.
  3. I set up a new TV in a room that has CAT5 (and audio cables) pushed through to it, but no IR cable. I would like for it to be able to be controlled by the C4, but it's not a TV that will be used often so I want to keep it as simple/cheap/easy as possible.. I imagine there has to be some kind of product that converts IR-->cat5-->IR? I'm open to other solutions as well. Advice?

    IFTTT geofencing with Alan's driver

    My phone was not asleep as I was crossing the barrier and my gate was open when I arrived. So I'm not sure if thats it or not, but it's a possibility.

    IFTTT geofencing with Alan's driver

    I agree, and I'm not running a security operation here. I recognize that IFTTT is not meant for "serious" jobs. But it worked in the past and now it isn't working. So I am inquiring to see if people have fixed similar issues.

    IFTTT geofencing with Alan's driver

    OK, I just want to be clarify something. Neither IFTTT notifying Pushover or Pushover notifying Control4 is the issue here. People keep bringing this up (in other locations I have asked this question). Checking the logs, those are almost instantaneous. The issue is the phone or IFTTT not realizing I have crossed the barrier. In IFTTT language, the issue is that the applet does not realize the trigger happened.

    IFTTT geofencing with Alan's driver

    Good idea guys. I will try to make sure that my phone is not asleep when I am crossing the geofence. Many people are telling me it's just because IFTTT never worked well, but judging off discussion on these forums and my experience for a period of time... It seems like it DID work, and now something changed. I did have an OS update, but it's hard to know if that is when it stopped working. I can't remember exactly when the update happened and updates happen relatively frequently. I tried using the IFTTT option that put's IFTTT into your notification panel. It's supposed to circumvent sleeping issues. That did nothing though. So I do wonder if this is an issue with an android update.

    Unfortunately making it bigger didn't help. I made it so it trigger abouts a mile away.

    IFTTT geofencing with Alan's driver

    Last ran in my driver yesterday, so it did end up running. I assume, after I was inside the house already. Seems like the delay is getting worse and worse, which obviously doens't make sense. All I know is that I progressed from having it work for a few days and the gate would be open before I pulled up, to working right when I get to the gate, to now it seems to be responding once I'm already in side the house.

    C4 Door Station DS2 video quality

    OK, so I have an update on this. I checked the entire web gui and I noticed in the RTSP settings it looks like all the options are x480 unless you choose the MJPEG Video stream as the default and use rtsp://IP_ADDRESS/mjpeg_stream . Then there is a x960 option. The problem here is that my NVR just gets a blank feed when this is done. I have inputted the right parameters, but I'm guessing the NVR only accepts H264 or the like. Can you confirm what stream you are using to get x960?

    IFTTT geofencing with Alan's driver

    Just now I got home and it didnt run at all. Still shows as last ran yesterday , even though everything is setup correctly. Any insight?
  12. I have geofencing setup for my gate to open when I cross a particular threshold a mile or so away and hold it open for 3 min. I set it up per Alan's instructions but it seems there is one glitch i cant figure out. There were a few times in the last week or two where it didnt work till right as I pulled up and stopped. At first I thought I wasnt firing it far enough from the house, but expanding the circle didnt help. Eventually I figured out it was likely when my android phone is in sleep mode it doesnt update ifttt with the location cross. This makes sense and it's why everytime I stopped the gate would open. I would always reach for me phone to open the gate, and as soon as I woke my phone, I am guessing it initiated everything. Anyone else have this issue and was able to fix it?

    We have the NVR setup exactly as you specified (rtsp). I don't know about the Autoconfig thing. I will have to check. All I know is that even before changing any settings, it was on x480. I will check again.

    Yea, my NVR software definitely isn't able to change any settings on the camera. When I go into any kind of camera settings, it just errors out and says this camera doesn't support changes. So it uses a straight feed from the DS2 exactly how it is.

    This quote is from an old thread and I see you have got it working on x960. Any insight on where you found the setting?
