  1. I'm waiting for the eARC so we can send Atmos back to the central area. Are there any extenders that do full lossless audio over cat?? I was going to buy now but want to wait as I'm going to start to use my Sony TV apps
  2. I see that Josh.ai has released "new" connectivity with C4. Has anyone used it? Is it more secure than using google home or amazon? I'm sure it's more expensive. Josh.ai Residential Systems
  3. Am I the only one having issues using a TS to disarm the alarm?
  4. I'm on the latest OS and security driver is up to date. I can arm my system from a TS or alarm keypad. If an alarm is triggered, I can enter the code once on the alarm keypad and it disarms. However, I have to enter the code three or four times if I use a touch screen in order for it to accept and disarm. It is a GE panel Any ideas?
  5. I have 6 Yale door locks with touchscreen and key backup. I would love if they released a version with in-screen fingerprint reader or even an older-school fingerprint reader like those seen on cell phones as an add-on to the touchscreen keypad and key backup.
  6. With HDMI 2.1 released...I'm hoping JAP will release something with less compression or no compression at all. I have cat7 at all my TVs and can easily have fibre available. Need proper eARC as TVs now have the ability to send back Atmos to a receiver.
  7. Is there a master list of experience buttons that can be searched by non-dealers?
  8. So I feel quite dumb asking but how do I unhide in the navigator?? @RyanE designed the experience buttons with options for green open and red closed or vice versa. This is what I have in HE - door sensors and door locks. Nothing here looks like the @RyanE experience driver "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.
  9. My dealer added the Door Auto-Lock driver by @RyanE I'm using HE but cannot find where to configure the driver or program using the driver. It doesn't show up in agents or programming. My goal is to have it as green for locked and red for unlocked. I want to have it show up in the first security screen without going into the locks & sensors sub menu on a bunch of TS. One thing my dealer told me is that the timer won't start unless the door is opened or closed, meaning if we unlock the door and then walk away without opening the door or without re-locking the door then it will not auto lock. Any ideas how to program around this since the Yale auto-lock has to be turned off to use this driver??
  10. I opened my garage door and stuck a recycling box in the way of the safety sensor. The door couldn't autoclose and sent my first notification which included video of the IP camera on my TV and ts, push to my devices, audio announcement. 36 second later because it still open, the second macro (which calls itself) ran with just push and audio announcement. I let it loop 5 times then I closed the door by pressing the button. The only thing I haven't incorporated yet and doubt I will is the door trying to autoclose with each announcement. I want it to try once and if there is an error, I want someone to physically look at what's happening and press the button to close the door once the issue is resolved. Once I closed the garage door - the announcement stopped.
  11. @RyanE yes! For the win. I loose a little functionality but gain the experience buttons
  12. That's why I was going to program on the conditional of the alarm door open contact then turn off auto lock. However this functionality is not available with the current c4 Yale driver. The work around suggested will work but then I cannot quickly change the time for the autolock. It will be fixed as per the programming.
  13. It's a nested call. Although I'm an MD, I have a minor in comp sci. I always find it difficult to relate traditional programming to c4 programming. What I can tell you is that it works perfectly. I will make the change from delay to timer though.
  14. Thanks for that. I was hoping for a Yale specific method as I often change the duration of the autolock for different events / contractors, etc. I won't be able to do that.
