  1. Been using the Bond driver to control my shades (Somfy RTS motors) and it's working great. Wish there was 2-way feedback but understand that's not always possible. I saw that Bond is releasing a Pro version and wanted to know what changes we might see from a Control4 perspective (if anyone knows). https://www.bondhome.io/products/bond-pro/
  2. Since you're in Texas, another 1 to check out is Smith Thompson. They monitor my DSC alarm. No contracts and they included the cellular module. I've added contact sensors, glass break detectors and touch panels that they monitor.
  3. I've had dealers tell me the same thing. They don't understand why C4 sets the price so high on these. I don't like it myself and even had my Yale zigbee card go bad once (very rare for this to happen). Thankfully it was still under warranty and they replaced it immediately for me.
  4. I have 2 of the Yale Touchscreen locks and 2 Kwikset locks all on Control4. The 2 Yale locks are protected due to covered porches - front and back. 1 of the Kwiksets is exposed to the elements in Southern Texas so the heat wears on the finish. I've seen a Yale lock do the same. I personally like the Yale locks better since they respond to C4 much faster. There is a slight delay on the Kwiksets.
  5. The ones from Amazon won't work with Control4. Not the same Zigbee stack.
  6. Yep - forgot the mention that. Using some garage contact sensors. Can't remember where I got them from but they were less than $20.
  7. I can't report on door position but for my use case, it's just 1 large door that is either fully open or fully closed. And yes I can see if it's open or closed and it's fully integrated with C4. This was my solution and meets my needs.
  8. I gave up on integrating my MyQ garage door. Hardwired a spare remote to a Card Access relay and for under $80, I'm done. Works 100% of the time. Going on 2 years without any issues.
  9. Meaning, until the new firmware is available, I'll still need to use IE or an IE extension I'm using for the Chrome browser.
  10. I received confirmation from support that they will be making this version available for the NVR 501 models. Unfortunately, can't test until then and still need IE or IE extension for Chrome.
  11. I am but using the NVR 501 which does not support this firmware. Not sure if Snap will make this functionality available on older models but hoping they will since IE will probably go away before I retire my NVR.
  12. Really hope that you were using an ethernet cable from the start. My default is to hardwire unless it's impossible.
  13. These are the instructions I received from someone when I was enabling my box. Make sure you have the right firmware and set a static IP address or do a DHCP reservation. VERIFY FIRMWARE VERSION: 1) To find the Firmware version of your supported STB, use the About page: * Go to Settings and scroll down to the About page. -or- * Using Xfinity Voice control, say "About" into the voice remote. 2) Look for firmware with 3.2p1 in the tag line. * Example – for an Arris Xg1v4, you should see this: AX014AN_3.2p1 . . . There will be additional letters/number in the build line, but as long as you see 3.2p1, the STB is ready for IP. As Firmware continues to upgrade, all builds after 3.2p1 will be ready for IP Control. Example - if you see 3.2p3 or 3.3, etc., the STB is ready for IP Control. SETUP STEPS: 1) Activate IP Control on your STB (this requires the Xfinity Remote and an Ethernet connection to the SB): * Press and Hold the Xfinity button for 3 seconds. * Press the "DOWN", "DOWN", "3" buttons. * This will open the STB Diagnostics Menu (there will be several seconds of lag while it loads). * Scroll down to 'Remote Controls' and select. * Scroll to IP Control and select. * With the Diagnostics IP Control page open: - Press and Hold "A" for 5 seconds. - Press "4", "7", "7" buttons ("I","P","R"). - Press and Hold "A" for 5 seconds. * A message will tell you that you are activating IP Control and your STB will reboot. 2) After STB reboot, return to the Diagnostics Menu and return to the IP Remote section. Verify that IP is enabled, and note the IP Remote LAN Address. 3) Setup a static IP Address registration in your router's DHCP menu (beyond the scope of this document). 4) Reboot the STB if necessary to obtain the new IP Address. 5) In ComposerPro's Connections -> Network Tab -> IP Network section, find the Xfinity X1 driver, and enter it's IP Address in the Identify Window. 6) In the Xfinity driver's Actions Tab, press the 'Pair to Xfinity X1' button. This will pair Control4 with the STB. 7) In ComposerPro's Connections -> Control/AV tab, make appropriate A/V connections from the Xfinity X1 driver to appropriate endpoints. 😎 In ComposerPro, select File -> Refresh Navigators. The Xfinity X1 STB should be controllable through Control4.
  14. Never heard that before unless something has changed on Control4's side. I've swapped out equipment many times and re-sold it here and on other sites.
  15. You can sell whatever you want. Post it here with a pic and price it accordingly.
