  1. Anyone else have this issue? We’ve 3 of 6 remotes we have to replace due to led-dimming after 2-3 years.
  2. We have 7-8 sr260s. Have had for a few years. Now they have varying levels of LED brightness — from strong to barely readable in a lit room. I’ve turned off light sensor and put brightness to max (I have composer HE and am somewhat of an electronics geek) so all settings are correct. Anyone else have this issue? Were there several manufacturers of these units or several changes in spec/manufacturing process?
  3. Thanks. Any thoughts on the antenna thing? Odd they added that if their zigbee is robust!
  4. Hi I have several C4 motions (Control4® ZCA-WMS10-2EXT-ZP) with external antenna (battery powered). Is there any way to rename them in Composer HE? Also I noticed they only recently made them available with external antenna -- is this an admission that there are Zigbee connection issues? The external antenna looks ugly and seems like a band-aid measure. Thanks.
  5. Aqualink sucks — unreliable and dated. Don’t know if Pentair is better. Pool tech is stuck in the 1970s.
  6. If you’re on Long Island try Home Technology Experts ie www.hteny.com alex runs the place and they’ve done a great job for us. They’re in the Hamptons and NYC so might cover your area.
  7. If you search the thread there’s a bug which manifests this way: after 2-4 weeks the DS2’s photos become “unsynched” — ie you start getting photos of, well, no one. Either it becomes delayed or jumps the gun. The solution is to reboot the DS2 every two weeks. I have Composer HE and have set it to reboot the DS2 every week. Rebooting may solve other bugs as well. Hopefully C4 is reading this. It is an obscure bug but a real one.
  8. We had the squealing sound in one sr260. We replaced it. Guess it was a waste of money if this firmware update addresses it.
  9. Yes make sure you have 2” conduit run to each room to future proof. Also I’d put in double the structured wire they recommend and use at least cat 6a
  10. Yeah good point. But I’ve found in general higher volume means they’ve done more programming and are quicker and better at dealing w punch lists. But yes I’m sure a lower volume dealer could be quite good/capable.
  11. Tilt toward a platinum or diamond dealer. They higher volume ones are generally better imo.
  12. Any solutions? Tired of rebooting every two weeks!
  13. I’m having same issue. Needs reboot every two weeks or so otherwise I get pictures without people forever!
  14. We’ve had big issues with C4 zigbee motions outdoors. They drop off periodically and sometimes persistently. Magically they now offer sensors with antenna. Suspect they added this option due to connection issues. If you get C4 make sure you get the ones WITH antenna.
