  1. According to the spec sheets, the Bond Bridge is limited to 30 devices and the Bond Pro is limited to 50 devices.
  2. If you have an AppleTV or FireTV. Add the Photo Station App on the QNAP. Put QMedia on an AppleTV. Should be everything you are looking for. Lots of cool features in there for photographers, which will be what you want. Here is a link to a QNAP video that discusses some Video, photo and music capabilities. You can skip over to the Photo Station section (just before 18 minutes). I use this set up on a Samsung Frame to display pics of the family. Just have an “album” on the QNAP and the QMedia continuously cycles through whatever is in that “album”. Result is a giant 4K digital frame.
  3. Again, the biggest question I am not sure has been answered is what is your end goal. This may be more “control” than you are looking for, but here you go. The options are limitless. http://www1.lightorama.com LoR Christmas Videos - http://www1.lightorama.com/christmas-videos/ LoR Halloween Videos - http://www1.lightorama.com/halloween-videos/ LoR DIY Kits - http://www1.lightorama.com/build-it-yourself-kits/
  4. Get a Bond Bridge and the Chowmain driver. Rock solid.
  5. I know this thread is talking about garage doors and Bond, but thought this is as good a spot as any. We are using a SainSmart RJ45 TCP/IP Remote Control Board with Integrated 8-Ch Relay at our house. Hard wired so takes a lot of the variables out of the equation. At $45 was a pretty inexpensive way to get it integrated. Put one button on the keypad for each of the 4 garage doors and has been rock solid for years. https://www.sainsmart.com/products/rj45-tcp-ip-remote-control-board-with-integrated-8-ch-relay
  6. Couple of options. I have not found any automated versions that aren’t also pricey. At least not any that I would want to purchase. https://inca-tvlifts.com/ https://www.legrandav.com/products/resultset?Chief=Display Mounts
  7. Skip the Somfy bridge, just get a Bond. The Somfy bridge was garbage for us. It worked about 1 out of 10 times. Got a Bond Bridge (with Alan’s driver) and it has worked 100% of the time since.
  8. Cool Components has some good products. Here is a link to the “venting rooms and equipment closets” section. They have a bunch of “cool” cooling products for all applications. http://www.coolcomponents.com/Rooms-Closets_c_9.html You can add a variable switch, link below so the hotter it gets, the more air it moves. http://www.coolcomponents.com/Advanced-LT-Controller-v2-OnOff-Variable-Speed-_p_390.html I have the VS-HF-PRO up close to the ceiling sucking warm air out and a passive vent around the floor that allows cooler air in. Simple, cost effective and works for me.
  9. For those of you with your own, what weather stations are you using?
  10. https://www.axis.com/en-us/solutions-by-application/license-plate-recognition I think it only works with Axis cameras, but appears to do everything you are looking for.
  11. I have several cameras outside and probably half have plenty of light and the other half could use additional light. Does anyone have any suggestions on an IR illuminator/floodlight that you use or have used? I am looking for one that is PoE. Thanks.
  12. What CK said. I have 11 cameras and have not had any issues.
  13. Personally I wouldn't have a button that can turn your alarm off. Could result in bad things. I have several that arm at doors when leaving or in the bedroom to arm/stay, but having one that disarms scares me. Just my $0.02.
  14. If you have a NAS, go IP and use the NAS for storage. You can use software like Blue Iris or whatever comes with the camera (free). Personally I would and did go IP. One stream pointed at C4 and the other pointed at the software.
