  1. Out of interest - what programming were you going to perform with the text colour option?
  2. It does not look like that property is available in Programming.
  3. Instead of programming the remote button clicks to navigate to menu item, you should be choosing the source directly in the programming. When Entrance Door Cam senses motion If Family Room Is ON Select Entrance Door Cam Video in the Family Room if Alarm is armed Send Notification 'Someone is at the door' (with photo attatchement) else maybe do a voice alert or door bell chime ......
  4. Thanks. I was assuming this would be the way to go. But I was hoping there would be some magic way to say follow my programming for this state, but revert to following connection for that state. I like the simplicity of having the LED follow the light connection/scene toggle colour. But given this colour is changed via programming, I'll just have to have the whole process follow programming. Cheers for the response.
  5. Hopefully I can explain the situation, so I can get some advice on ways to achieve the desired result. I have a hallway with a study nook - two light circuits. At one end I have a dimmer for the study and a 6 button keypad dimmer for the hallway At the other end of the hall, I have a 6 button keypad. I am trying to get the LED colours programmed on the 6 button keypad. The top button is linked via connections to a toggle scene called 'Hallway + Study Off' The scene has colour = black for toggle active and colour = blue for toggle inactive. This works perfect. If either or both of the hallway and study lights are on, the keypad is lit blue, if they are both off, the keypad is black. The button turns the lights off when one or both are on, and both on if both are off. Now I want to have the led red if the lights are on due to the motion sensor triggering a lighting scene. I think my only option is to use the 'Set LED Current' property When lighting scene Motion_Study is Invoked Set Hallway LED on the Study->Hallway Keypad to Red This works, but I don't think there is a way to then set it back to using the toggle options for the linked scene? Can I set it back to allow led colours to come from the toggle scene or do I need to program colours based on all the combinations? Cheers.
  6. Any particular reason to move away from the Epic Driver? I've seen a few threads with opinions both for and against using the Epic driver over the C4 voice scene driver. I've just done a big clean up of all my programming and managed to simplify a huge amount of code - mainly due to my programming pre-dating Advanced lighting scenes and using a bunch of variables as change triggers. Currently apart from lights and scenes, I only have two programmed voice triggers (a water fall and a patio heater) Once I figure out what else I need, I'll be looking to program them in, but still unsure if I use Epic or C4's driver options.
  7. Cool, thanks for the info. The Epic driver is next on my list to get up and running again, although no hurry for me, as the Voice Scene driver seems ok for the limited use I have for it currently. It's been a while since I did some research on Alexa and the options, as the Epic driver stopped working with OS2.9 and I was hesitant to upgrade given my reliance on my HC300. I only recently swapped it out for the 2nd HC800 you pointed me to on eBay. I bought a power supply for it from China and it took almost four months to get here due to the virus conditions....
  8. As the others have mentioned, the sensor drivers offer you the programming options you want, here is an example for you: You can then program specifically on 'When X senses/stops sensing motion' or use the 'When Contact State Changes' Different drivers provide different wording, ie: the Door drivers offer 'open' and 'closed', the beam sensor offers 'broken' and 'restored'
  9. I've got two Gen 2 dots. (i'm assuming they are gen 2 because their software version matches what Amazon states as Gen 2 latest) I got them shipped to NZ several years ago using a NZ Postal Service 'you shop' account, which is basically a PO BOX locally in USA. Freight to NZ was generally pretty fast and cheap for small items. Not sure if prices have shot up in the current environment?? They are now freely available in NZ from retail shops. What driver are you referring to with 'V2' ? From memory the Voice Scene driver in C4 is V75 And I think the epic driver I have might be V110? Cheers.
  10. I'm using C4 control. I do have the Epic driver, I stopped using it when it became unsupported with V2.9. Now that I'm on OS3, I believe I can use it again - so I might give it a try.
  11. Do you use C4's control or the Epic driver?
  12. What has gone wrong with your 300? Mine failed due to the power supply. I was able to replace the power supply very easily and all was fine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I quite often ask Alexa to turn off my kitchen lights. Kitchen lights is an advanced lighting scene which ramps six dimmers to zero over five seconds. I often get a response ‘Sorry, kitchen lights is not responding’ just as the lights turn off. I don’t get this response asking for single lights to turn on or off. I’m wondering how Alexa handles scenes. And how she determines if her action was completed by control 4 Anyone know?? Does she think the task was not executed because the lights are technically still on for a few seconds after she executes the task?? Or does Alexa get a success: true /false response like a normal API works? And perhaps the request is simply timing out? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Thanks for confirming. I’m now finding some movies on Netflix are not in Dolby digital either. I always assumed it was pretty standard since the 90’s. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I just assumed YouTube videos demoing 5.1 and 7.1 etc were in this format. Everything I’m reading online now is saying YouTube used to offer this sound feature but no longer does. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
