    Can you downgrade 3.0 to 2.10?

    Ok... Generally I've been fairly quiet for the last year and mostly just reading the threads watching for new C4 stuff or other interesting 3rd party items, and or ideas. But I had to pop in and post before slinking back into the shadows... Are you always this nasty to people and are you yourself a dealer, hopefully not mine if you are... I ask because many of your posts trend towards not so nice. The OP said he just upgraded, didn't say he did it and didn't say he didn't do it. I think most of us assumed he upgraded via his dealer who didn't inform him of possible issues, conflicts, or loss of functionality. Believe it or not, not every dealer is amazing and covers these things. Sometimes a client calls and says they want to upgrade and so the dealer upgrades them, no questions asked. Yes you can read this thread and come to possible conclusions but why? What purpose does it serve outside of trolling someone. I'm sure I'll get accused of doing the same thing but if you look at my past posts you'll see that my MO is generally the same. There is no reason to be mean, nasty, ignorant, or otherwise to people. With that said, back to the shadows and maybe someday I'll just learn to keep my mouth shut.

    Hello Everyone, After numerous reports of aggressive and abusive behavior, the user wappinghigh has been given a final warning and banned from posting on this site indefinitely. This community was built to help others, and his behavior directly contradicts this. If you have any thoughts about this please reply to the thread, I will be monitoring it. I am sorry to everyone affected that this didn't happen sooner. Dan

    Hiya Just developed a quick (free) driver for those of you who want to have a play with the new OS 3 push notifications! Add the driver. Go to properties, enter an image URL. Go to your push notifications agent. Select a push notification. For the attachments area select this driver's Image URL source and away you go! Check the documentation for an example of how to get it working with the DS2. (That notification was triggered manually, hence nobody at the gate) Latest Release: 27th June 2019: https://www.dropbox.com/s/q41401kp95nc01v/generic_url_notification_driver.c4z?dl=0

    T3 portable touch screens OS3.0

    Hi Folks, I’m the Manager of the Mobile and Embedded UI teams at Control4. I’m sorry to hear that you are having issues with your T3s! As has been confirmed we had an issue with doorstations calling T3s which results in long early media delays (when you first see the video before answering). We have a fix and it is currently being tested. I think everyone will be pleasantly surprised by the intercom performance when the fix is released. The posts about a one to two week turn around is still accurate. I also want to assure you that we have an internal process in place to make sure we avoid these types of issues happening again. This specific issue was due to not testing calls from a doorstation to T3 on a large system. We have different scale racks with 18+ touch panels around the company, but the team responsible for this kind of testing hasn’t had the access they need. We are currently working on fixing that. Re the other T3 issue the OP referred to, I am unaware of that particular issue. Please work with your dealer to send us the system logs. We are very interested in taking a look. I appreciate everyone’s patience as we work through these issues! This was a HUGE release with a lot of moving parts. The great thing about Control4 is most of the employees are also customers. We want our houses to work well too! I have seven touch panels (4 in-wall, 3 table top). If my system doesn’t work well my family lets me know. Thank you for reading, sorry it was a long one 😁

    I'm not a dealer but I can comment on this. The connection times are slower than they were in OS2 due to an underlying change in the networking technology used to talk to the controller. The team is hard at work on reducing connection times and we've already made great strides and we're continuing to reduce them further. We'll be dropping a public beta of the app in the next month or so with these connection improvements and I'll post the link in this thread so if you're interested you can give it a try. In the meantime, thanks for your patience

    The real reason for SnapAV sale

    Control4 sold itsself because: There was not the expected revenue and growth Major shareholders wanting to cash in and they increased the pressure after stock price plummeted and Neo acquisition will cost resources. Why did Control4s reven and growth not meet expectations? My 2c: 1 - the dealer only model does not attract new customers. It is limiting Control4 growth - I am sure of that. It's the major thing holding Control4 back. 2 - Entry costs are still high. HW needs to be cheaper and 4sight needs to be mandatory, maybe in different levels between 50 and 200$ per year depending on project sizes 3 - Lack of innovation. OS3 took ages and Control4 still doesn't support media management via web, support of TV series and ZigBee 3 is nowhere be seen...and I am not even talking about voice recognition..... Dealers should realize that DiY will likely make them more money in the end as it lowers the entry cost and if systems get larger they are back in the game. So let's see what SnapAV makes out of it....

    Stating that “There is nothing revolutionary or evolutionary about that function” tells me that you have some in-depth knowledge about Control4 hardware and software that I’m not aware of. I know that what C4 does may seem trivial and could easily be done on hardware as simple as a Raspberry PI but I assure you, it is not. Having worked at Control4 for over a decade, I’ve been in many meetings where product managers are desperately trying to figure out how to NOT deprecate hardware. Sometimes the problem is limited engineering resources and sometimes it is the result of hardware limitations that can’t be overcome. I can confidently tell you that the decision to deprecate hardware is never taken lightly and has never been done with the intent to sell something new and better.

    This site is very similar to Instagram and other social media. Makes me laugh. I also find it funny when people are saying they won't upgrade because of potential bugs and they don't want to be a "beta" tester. However, I've seen the same people say they are waiting for the "New" hardware to drop then will upgrade. 1. Pretty sure you are going to have to be on 3.0+ with this "New" hardware. The HC series will be EOL and top out at 2.10.6 (basically) for full functionality. 2. New hardware - so that's not "Beta" testing when it's first released? 3. People are just mad that they don't have EA series controllers and that's why most of them are not updating. If that wasn't the case, why did you go to ZigBee Pro instead of embernet? Why go past 2.9.1? Why did you get rid of the HC500 and HC1000? I mean, the original portable touch screen was nice. lol. Good thing humans didn't just invent fire. 4. Update is good - Much needed. Does it need more, yes. But, they just started a new foundation for the way their vision is heading.

    SnapAV buying C4

    Snap's 'partnering' and buyouts have been a mixed bag. Just look at Houselogix and how that basically killed that company. No issues with Snap as such, for their core business, but I wouldn't judge what happens in this scenario based on that at all (Same if it were the other way around mind you, C4 has the same mixed bag of how they handled take-overs). Note that I'm not expecting it to go bad - just not expecting it to go good either, it's going to be a big wait and see. That is arguably the one thing I really don't like at this point - wait and see is not my favorite approach

    There is a driver just for this purpose in the Control4 online database. I created it for my house, because it's annoying to smash your lock into the door jamb. It's called "Door Auto-Lock (OS2.9+). As you can see in the name, you have to be on at least Control4 OS 2.9 for the driver to work. You add one for each door (that also has a separate contact), and connect the lock relay connection and the door sensor connection. You then turn *off* the auto lock on the lock itself. The only downside to this is if the Control4 system is down, your doors don't automatically lock. It's an Experience Button driver, so it can show up on the UI, shows door status (Locked/Closed, Unlocked/Closed, Locked/Open, Unknown). The driver will lock on expiration of delay seconds, *after* the door is closed. If the door is opened and then closed, the timer starts again, so in my case (delay set to 300 seconds), if I answer the door, shut the door, and 4 minutes later, I answer the door again, the lock will engage 5 minutes after I close the door again. The driver has: 3 Experience Button icon sets (one red/green, one green/red, and one black). The red/green vs. green/red is because for some people, locked should be red, and other people think the locked state should be green. the ability to configure whether the Experience button UI allows unlock or not If not, it can be used to lock the lock when the door is closed, but not unlock the lock. a configurable auto lock delay, with a much longer delay than some of the manufacturers' locks. button bindings so you can connect the driver to keypads, and show door state with LEDs, as well as control the lock with the keypad button. events for Closed/Locked, Closed/Unlocked, Open/Locked, and Open/Unlocked. commands to Lock (if door is closed) / Unlock, and Enable/Disable, so you can program turning on / off the 'auto lock' feature. I use this when I have houseguests during a party, etc., so the door doesn't automatically lock. It works with any of the controllable door locks and requires a 'door open' contact installed (any kind). And it's all for the low, low price of free (plus dealer installation). RyanE

    DS2 Door station VERY buggy

    Well, looks like you guys were right. Connecting the doorstation with a patch wire durectly to the POE worked. LUCKILY, connecting the doorstation to the junction box at the end of the driveway worked great as well. So the issue seems to be from the junction box to the keypad pole. The 25ft run should be easy enough to drag a new wire through, which I am planning on doing right now.

    C4 3.0 iOS app

    I have seen a Beta version of the app (not sure if I should have seen this, nor am I sure how far we are away from an iOS app update) but I can say that from what I saw, it looks to me like the next version of the app will load up on a local network in about 1/3 of the time that the current app takes... In short, I am not in the know, but do believe that this will be resolved soon! Those in the know are probably constrained from commenting.

    Sky Q ip driver

    That is crazy that they haven't changed it yet. This change was implemented in Sky Q firmware Q060.000.28.00L which was released in December 2017. When this first came out we were inundated with support tickets, calls, emails, etc. Not something pleasant to wake up to on a Saturday i'll tell you that much. Anyway we logged in remotely to a system and after 2 hours of digging figured out that it was a simple port number change and pushed out updates to every site with the driver installed to ensure that no futher systems were effected. Since then we have posted 14 updates to the driver to add new functionality to support all our friends in the UK including our most recent update which is for OS 3.0 favourting

    BEST OF Control4 Automations

    I recently added one of the TP-Link energy monitoring plugs (HS110) to my washing machine. When the cycle finishes, I programmed an announcement telling us the load needs changed and, because we are really good at ignoring things, I have a C4 push notification sent to our phones 15 minutes later to remind us (probably need to send notifications about 3 more times though). I use the Chowmain TP-Link and Advanced Announcements drivers for this.

    Honestly, there is no reason to wait to upgrade unless you have incompatibility hardware (e.g. HC250) or incomparable drivers (e.g. security drivers on security proxy V1). OS3 seems to have many less bugs (well done C4) than most previous versions and, as MS said earlier, this is software... every version will have some bugs!

    My biggest issues are that they won't let ME buy drivers, and that my "DriverCentral" driver appears to be tied to one particular DriverCentral dealer, that I'm then forced to work with on anything I want from DriverCentral. I've got someone that has helped me with the one DriverCentral driver I have (which I was forced in to by Alan Chow leaving Houselogix and going over there) but I don't like it being dependent on any one specific person.

    I don’t have pro. I’m not whining. When I purchased C4 I did my homework and knew the limitations. So why cry and complain? It was not forced on me. Savant was 100% locked and 5 years ago (and still feel today) no DIY platform was robust enough for my needs. People C4 isnt a government mandated system where you have no choice. You either picked it or moved to a place with it and decided to roll with it. Feel free to rip it out whenever you want.

    Oh give me a break. Existing systems don’t stop working when an upgrade comes out. Lets think of HVAC as you suggest. When trane releases a more efficient furnace, do they let you upgrade your existing one to make it the same efficiency? No. When they come out with a WiFi smart thermostat, do they let you download an upgrade to give your thermostat the same features? No. You have to buy a new one.

    Now you're talking about a great example. How many people can legitimately build a PC? 1% of the population? 2%? Also how many can set up their own VPN? Maybe 5%? So DIY would sell to the 1-5%? Building a decent sized project would require much more than 50 minutes of videos. Maybe 8+ hours or more worth of training videos. Maybe shorter for those maybe 5% of people. I definitely agree with the network being important, but even those who know networking can still struggle with HA networks. Mainly because HA networks and Corporate Networks are different worlds.

    As some of you have asked: a few of the 'behind the scenes' (in addition to the fantastic UI / Favorites / Backgrounds / Sliders / etc.) updates in this release include: LuaJIT: Drivers that support it can use the Just-in-time compiled version of Lua, which speeds up drivers (and saves CPU resources for Director) Rewrite of the AV Pathing engine, which makes AV selection faster and more reliable, and handles more cases properly Media Sessions, which replaces Zones, is a much richer and more standardized experience for multi-room audio and video Standardization of MSP driver parsing / business rules across UIs (much less likely to find an MSP bug in *only* iOS or *only* Android, etc.) There have been a *lot* of other internal updates / changes, but those are some of the biggest ones off the top of my head. In summary, OS3.0 is a fantastic base for Control4 to continue to grow and innovate. RyanE

    There are two Concord4 drivers, one old one and one new one. If your GUI has the “big round button” on the alarm page, you’re using the new one. The new one will continue to work. If you’re still on the old one, a dealer can swap out the driver as part of the upgrade process. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Why doesn't everyone just wait until the Snap merger/takeover is official, C4 becomes a private company again, then we can finally get more detailed info as in what's to come for the future (ie: products, roadmap,etc.) You know, like the way it used to be. Also, I don't understand why so many are disgruntled over this. You want bleeding edge, your hardware best be bleeding edge. Too many gripes about equipment that has been around FOREVER. Speaker points?? Seriously?? Did I read someone complaining about no speaker point capability? As for older touch screens, replace them with IOS or Android tablets, if you find buying more C4 versions too expensive. The mobiles get the same interface and can do intercom using the other app. Crikey, have a great long weekend everyone.

    Red Control 4 Button

    If your dealer doesn't know how to make the 4 button work then you need to find a new dealer.

    Bathroom and Kitchen Scenes

    Motion sensor under beds that turns on bathroom light to 40% during certain times and under certain conditions. So if you get up in the middle of the night to use the facilities it is lite up for you. For the bedrooms that don't have a bathroom it will activate the hall lights to light the way to the bathroom.

    Inspiration / Personal History

    With my background in industrial machine automation and home construction/renovations, I never realized that the two could meet in the middle at the residential level at an affordable price point. I always thought that the level of automation I was hoping for someday was something only Bill Gates could afford UNTIL I stumbled upon a Control4 demo system. Rather than try to develop automation in the home using industrial quality PLC's and hardware, C4 had already accomplished what I was looking for with the ability to retrofit on a platform that could integrate more than I had ever imagined. I'm just glad that I didn't waste any time on anything else.

    Inspiration / Personal History

    I was building my house and my builder said I got someone you have to talk....Literally being a tech guy my whole life I never knew this level of HA existed. So I talked to Chris - who is now a good good friend - and our 30 min meeting was 90 min and I was hooked. Control4 bug. Then I started working for them part time programming....and then writing drivers.
