Sorry for so long. I just though it would be cool to see what others have done and what's the coolest trick you did with Control 4. Better yet, explain how.

Once done, I will share pics of the store if anyone is interested. The store lighting is sweet. It's all low voltage lighting controlled by Lutron. That will be my next big project. I don't want to tear out a very expensive, and sweet, Lutron system throughout the store. I want to integrate it into the C4. But first I must get the store setup, C4-wise and get all the conrol working.

Today I finished all the physical connections, then started to set my rooms up in the software, add all the C4 product, put everything on static IP, then identify all the product.

Next, I start adding components and working on the bindings in Composer.

Oh, and I added our store logo and it looks cool.
