    #1- if wiring from the controller, you would be using 12v from the contact and a relay to control the flow. 
    2- yes, it would be easier to add a driver in composer so the system knows what amps are attached to what rooms and when to control it. 
    3- see #1 and 2, yes

    All of the drivers (including bulbs) poll for changes.  As such it may take about 30 seconds or so to obtain feedback.

    Sounds like you have auto discovery enabled without a mac address entered in.  Either disable it or enter in the correct mac address.

    I would look into why you need to restart.  Get your dealer to contact Control4 technical support who will log into your system to check for memory leaks and cpu related problems.  Could be anything from bad programming, poorly written drivers and more.

    Add developers to that as well.  We arn't happy to wake up to receive tweets, forum posts, emails, contact us enquiries and phone calls.  I totally agree that this is not acceptable and have a meeting with driverCentral to discuss how they can make sure this never happens EVER AGAIN.

    Yeah i am using ring as well.  The motion sensing and doorbell events are quite handy.  Doorbell events trigger a doorbell announcement wav file which triggers in all zones in my home.  Motion triggers the front porch light.  Pretty much as soon as i get a notification on my phone of doorbell ring or motion sense the programming fires in Control4.

    Just wanted to take a quick second and let everyone know we've added support for both the RGB and RGBW wireless LED strips from Nexlux. They are direct Wi-Fi so no added controller like Hue! check it out on DriverCentral.io

    We don't have it here in Australia.  I am utilising a HS-300 purchased from the US.  It is 110v only.  The US is a big market for us so we have to support US only products 😉

    alanchow got a reaction from hego in All Chowmain drivers stopped working - Please purchase license (driverCentral problem)   
    driverCentral is looking into this for us.  As a large quantity of driverCentral drivers are ours (we have 95 drivers on driverCentral vs a total of 220 on the market) it is highly likely that if you are using a driverCentral driver you are using one of ours hence the confusion.
    When Kyle mentioned "One the issues was due to improper implementation of the our cloud driver on the developers side. This was fixed after we discovered what was causing this."  This was in reference to a domosapiens driver in which case Paul found the problem and fixed all of his drivers.  To date our implementation of the driverCentral licencing code is per driverCentral's instructions.
    If however any fault is found at our end we will resolve the issue as we have always done with any fault discovered.

    For reference this was updated two months ago.  You can find all revisions via the Revisions section on the driver's product page on driverCentral.

    I don't think Alex was being agressive or abusive.  Sure he is eccentric and goes off on some rants that really don't have anything to do with Control4 but in the end he wasn't out there to get anyone.
    Back when did Control4 installations for Recluse AV i used to program his house up.  Not a bad guy once you get to know him.

    The Chowmain Notification Suite for Control4 allows dealers to program email and push notifications easily without the need to subscribe to any subscription based service.
    This driver was one of the first drivers we developed at Chowmain and over the years we have added plenty of functionality to it making it the best way to notify customers of events in their home.
    The driver is now 5 years old and we are now at the stage where we feel that we can give more to our customers by making the driver cheap enough that it can put into every project.
    As such we are proud to announce that we are reducing the MSRP price permanently of the Chowmain Notification Suite for Control4 by a whopping 50%.  This is down from $100USD MSRP to $50USD MSRP.
    For more information about the Chowmain Notification Suite please see link below.

    Our TP-Link suite now supports inwall switches, inwall dimmers, various outlets, powerboards and a whole range of smart bulbs including RGB bulbs and color temp bulbs.  Really happy with the TP-Link range of products and will continue to integrate the products as they come out with new stuff.

    Sorry have been away on business in europe.  Richard resolved this whilst i was away.  In future it is best to reach out to our support team as forums is not always monitored (by anyone but me to be honest).

    Hi guys,
    richard and I will be away for the next 3 weeks in Europe.
    next week we will be exhibiting on the Control4 stand at ISE so if any dealers are around pop by and say hi.
    If you need anything from us Justin (our new Control4 developer) is still in the office during Australian Eastern Daylight Time.
    driverCentral is still available as well for support during mountain time hours.
    see you guys in 3 weeks!

    Thanks for the feedback.  At this stage we only have channel drivers for Virgin Media, Freesat and Sky.  We may integrate other channel services in the future but don't want to promise anything as we may not be able to deliver.
