  1. I like that….didn't know it was there
  2. Is there an LED Controller - C4 Compatible - that doesn't have a wall wart? 120V ?
  3. Don't know what solution would work best and DMX seems too costly for what I want to do. I have approximately seven (7) small florescent fixtures at 120V all wired to the same switch that serve as undercabinet/counter lighting. They are so 1980's....I just hate them. I'm thinking of swapping out to some RGB LED (possibly strips) to create some different lighting. I'm swimming with ideas, but unsure of direction I should go. I know nothing about DMX and applying that to this scenario seems very expensive. Am I wrong? Is there an easier way to achieve what I'm after?
  4. Since Alexa is more global (i.e. it has no idea what room you're in) -It's best to keep names as short as possible and use location and device. For example, in my master bedroom I use: Master Cans vs Master Bedroom Cans Master Fan vs Master Bedroom Fan Master Lamp vs Master Bedroom Bedside Lamp Naming a device Can lights or Lamp really wont help unless you have just one of those (which I doubt). As msgreenf said - you can log into your account with C4 online and rename those devices there under the Alexa tab. Hope that helps
  5. I use the Phillips motion driver/sensor from Unilogic -has lux level you can program off. So does the Card Access motion I believe.
  6. It's super simple with connected Sonos. I have an echo dot in the kitchen and can say "Alexa, play music in the Kitchen" and she will start playing something on the Play5 (located in the kitchen). I have a FireTV connected to my TV in my master bedroom and can say "Alexa, turn off master cans" and she will turn them off OR I can say "Alexa, play music in Master bedroom" and she will start playing. Scenes work the same way. I used "Alexa, turn on goodnight" every night. My Goodnight Scene with additional programming shuts off and turns on various lights, locks doors, checks garage doors, etc.....I don't have an echo in my rack. Just various devices around the house using the C4 dot driver. I'm totally satisfied.
  7. Anyone seen a Black Friday TV that has IP control and plays well with Control4 we should consider?
  8. WOW!! This is wonderful news!! I'll just sneak two questions in there that have been puzzling to me. Sonos and Nest. Two of my biggest entertainment / security / comfort loves......what are your thoughts on the future of the integration with Control4? Thanks again for your contribution and your thoughts! I think I can speak for a ton of us in saying WELCOME!!!! STICK AROUND!!!!
  9. I never migrated my Nest Account to Google......Never did the two step authentication either and I'm able to "skip" the process and log into my account. My Nest thermostat working fine on 3.1 currently.
  10. Phillips Motion Driver does that. Requires the Hue Bridge (which opens the door to more Hue devices) but I think its probably one of the best drivers available. To answer your question - on top of motion, it senses TEMPERATURE and LUX. And the motions are cheap, small, and have excellent battery life. https://www.unilogiq.com/en/control4-drivers Zero problems whatsoever....really love it. Very reliable. I swear I don't work for them - just love the driver.
  11. Christopher, I'm unaware of any driver for the HVAC you mentioned - BUT you should consult with your dealer about NEST or C4 integration via thermostats available. And the pull rope shades - that's a rabbit hole.....get ready to spend some bux When you said you were going to call your dealer and complain - I actually felt a little bad. Let me re-state - YOU NEED your dealer and HE needs you. Buy him lunch and you guys sit down and talk about what you want and expect from your system. You will end up happier with C4 I promise.
  12. That's what I was eluding to....but not having the whole story, all we can do is assume.
  13. https://www.unilogiq.com/en/control4-drivers Zero problems whatsoever....really love it. Very reliable.
  14. Maybe a bit of overkill - but I'm a HUGE fan of the Phillips Motion Driver. Requires the Hue Bridge (which opens the door to more Hue devices like the motion sensor I'm going to reccomend) but I think its probably one of the best drivers available. To answer your question - on top of motion, it senses TEMPERATURE and lux. You can program off temp changes And the motions are cheap, small, and have excellent battery life.
  15. As far as I can remember, the C07's are POE. C4 is dealer based system so yes you will always need the dealer for hardware changes like that. There's some DIY can save you a few bucks -for example buying the C07's and installing yourself and running the CAT5/6 yourself and finally installing a POE switch on your network connecting the CO7's. Personally - I use my dealer for all that as I just don't have the time to crawl around in the attic etc. The better your relationship with your dealer - the more you will enjoy the C4 environment. Your dealer has an easy service call for this upgrade and even some remotely - assuming you have 4Sight. One last side note: I'm a bit interested in the upgrade the OS…….didn't your dealer go over what's going to be impacted ahead of the upgrade to 2.10? I don't know what other equipment is in your project either. For all I know you could still have some serious "upgrade incompatibility" issues to resolve.
