  1. In my ongoing effort to simplify my Control4 system, I am also selling 5 Sonos Amp ZP-120's and one of the older, original Sonos Amps. All work 100% fine and are in great shape. There's a good market for these on eBay but will offer them here individually or as a lot before I list them on eBay later this week.
  2. Complete Just Add Power (JAP) 2G Solution for sale. The JAP devices were just removed from my Control4 system where they were functioning 100% fine apart from the 3 units specifically mentioned below. The switch is configured w/ the BlackWire driver/configuration. I am selling the following items as a set: Cisco SG300-10P Switch 10 Port Gigabit PoE Managed Switch includes rackmount ears and power supply Two (2) 2G Receivers Four (4) 2G Gigabit Receivers Units that may need new firmware and/or a factory reset: Two (2) 2G Receivers One (
  3. I found one, thank you all who replied. Great to see you can always count on this community in a pinch!
  4. I need a quick replacement for a possible faulty HC-800. I’m not looking to upgrade just yet to an EA. Anyone have one for sale? There are a few on eBay but I’d rather buy from someone here unsure if the ones on eBay will actually work. The controller comes up on the network, but nothing can connect to a Director. TIA!

  5. Two quick questions... Do you know what firmware they’re on? And, why are you selling them? I lost a couple Rx during a blackout but not sure I can replace them easily remotely so I’m partly thinking about abandoning the rest in favor of TiVo minis. If the firmware matches, I think it’s plug and play. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. I have an Orbi router and hardwired satellite on my system. No issues at all and a bit easier to config compared to the Ubiquiti router I replaced it with.
  7. Got it, thx again. Not so sure what I was doing wrong the first time, but I had the wrong DeviceID somehow when I tried to get the underlying temp variable. Appreciate it!
  8. OK, I think I understand what I need to do. For my specific example where I want to report on / record the temperature, I need to create a new variable, Temperature, then set this value based upon the value from the motion/temp sensor in Composer. I can do this on a Schedule. Then, identify the DeviceID and owneriditem for the newly created variable and pass that in thru the IFTTT driver. Is this correct? Or is there a simpler way to do this? I guess I thought I'd be able to address the variable directly, but maybe I'm missing something obvious here. Thanks!
  9. @Haveitall Did you figure out how to address system variables? I have an Axxess motion/humidity/temp sensor and I'm trying to push the value into a Google Sheet. Right now, I am getting Push Notifications through Control4 just fine. In Composer HE, I'm successfully addressing the variable as ${Living::Hall Motion Sensor::Temperature} but in the drop down for Value 1, Value 2 or Value 3 in the IFTTT driver, this isn't available. Typing it in direct doesn't seem to work, either. Below is the code that I tried when testing it w/ a simple email. It works fine, but it doesn't pass through the
  10. I have a few items for sale after some upgrades: 6-Button Keypad (Brown) 6-Button Keypad (White) Four (4) 3-Button Keypads (White) SR-250 Remote (Works fine, but the battery cover is a little loose. The little tab on the battery cover broke off.) Keypads do not have cover plates. Reasonable offers considered.
  11. I need some help w/ my JAP setup to update the firmware and reset the EDIDs. I am unable to pass through the 5.1 from the transmitters to the receivers reliably. I'm a very knowledgeable end user and can have two networks setup -- one to the internet and one to the switch to facilitate remote troubleshooting. Rough set up: Dedicated Cisco SG300 switch, isolated from the rest of my network 4 2G transmitters (3 DVRs, 1 Apple TV4) 4 2G receivers 1 2G+ receiver
  12. I upgraded to 2.7 and it seemed to have been bricked during the upgrade. (Gotta love it!) Should be fine for spare parts. Best offer + shipping from NYC.
  13. Try the Niles ABS-1. I use this to switch speakers between rears on my Marantz and a Sonos Zone Amp. No programming necessary. Works great. I have it set to override the Sonos as soon as it detects a signal from the Marantz. http://www.nilesaudio.com/product.php?prodID=ABS-1&recordID=Automated%20Switching%20Systems&categoryID=Switching%20Systems&catcdID=&prdcdID=FG00271 Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. I just saw a review of an 8-port Wi-Fi and Ethernet connected surge strip on AnandTech. Anyone ever hear of these things? Likely not given they're so new: http://www.ubnt.com/mfi#m-Power I'd like to get an inexpensive connected surge strip to remotely reboot devices. But it kills me to spend hundreds of dollars on something like this. The mPower 8 port strip is only $100. Any initial guesses on how hard it may be to integrate this into Control4 to selectively address outlets to power cycle? And, suggestions on who can make this possible? Thanks!
  15. That's what I thought until I had some serious issues swapping out a switch earlier this year. I had some major conflicts with Sonos and the Spanning Tree Protocol. Everything was working fine w/ my old (but very loud) 48 port Dell switch w/ Sonos. But then we tried swapping it out and all hell broke loose. I eventually found it easiest to go w/ an unmanaged switch to avoid the conflicts. To this day I'm still confused as to what happened, why it happened and what I could have done to prevent it. But the managed switches from Netgear and Planet simply didn't work.
