  1. Other then the intercom or cameras being viewed on touch screens which we don't have integrated, are their any other limits? We currently use two tablets for touch interface. They get used about 15% of the time. We mostly use remotes in the rooms unless we are listening to music. Our dealer told us they would be limited but we have not had any issues since we switched to them from our original mini screens two or three years ago. Thought it would be an interesting attempt at a bigger touch screen spending $700 less then a new touch screen. Thanks for the input!!
  2. Yes I am using composer pro and I added it to the project am running the latest version.
  3. Have a Sr 260 bought that I can't get to identify. was bought new (or so I thought) . Have tied connecting as new and tried to re identify after I could not connect. Used the room off #*13413. This did nothing as did the C4 button & 0 and pull the battery to reset. All I get is no connection. Anyone have any ideas? Am ready to return this remote for not working as I think it is a refurb that probably didn't work the first go round.
  4. I also use Verizon Fios and had all sorts of problems with control4 and the Arris boxes. Was told that it was a known Fios issue. After a Fios software update last month the issues went away and everything runs with no issues now. keep in mind you may not be getting Motorola boxes. I was told only my Dvr would be the only box that had to change and when they came out to upgrade me every box was replaced with Arris boxes. The reps on the phone aren't always accurate.
  5. Never had a c4 menu on this tv The only thing lit is the power button Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Had a power outage a couple of days ago and the master bedroom is no longer controllable. The remote control looks like it is ok it shows the correct source when selected but the tv, amp, cable box do not turn on. If I change rooms the remote controls the other room just fine. I unplugged and replugged in the hc200 and it powers on the network port on back blinks like it is talking on the network and the power button lights up on the front of the unit. I see the hc200 on the network also. Anything else can try? I have given up on the dealer a long time ago and have had no issues until now
  7. Thank you Ryan I think indenting did the trick. The lights are programmed differently on the weekend but I think it worked properly.
  8. I am trying to set it up so if the light is not on, it does not turn the light on to 30% I do not have the second line indented so i will try that. Thanks for the help
  9. Please help I have an outlet dimmer set to dim a light from 90% to 30% at 11PM This was programmed by the dealer I no longer use. On some nights the light is turned off before 11PM and I want to change the programming so the light will not turn on and dim at 11PM if this is the case but I am not sure what I am doing wrong. There are currently two lines programmed If living room lamp is 90% (Also tried if living room lamp is on) Dim living room lamp to 30% I have also tried to duplicate this using some other programming I have seen on this site but it did not work either I am using composer HE
  10. We use EnGenius EAP150 150Mbps High-Power Wireless Access Points at work. You can program these for to mesh together so as you move around the building you leave one access point and connect through the next closes one. They cost us somewhere around $60 - $70 each and look like a smoke detector. The range on them is fantastic and we use them for wireless POS equipment. They get their power through POE so all you need is a cat 5 wire back to the main router. Keep in mind your should do a wireless survey to see how much coverage each unit will get you. Depending on the building and even the n
  11. How would I see what channel the Zigbee is on? Is this something I can change the channel or is it better to change the channel on the WiFi? I have Verizon Fios in the house and the router is having issues. I am waiting on Verizon to send me out a new one. Could that be causing the problems? I don't think there is much on the Zigbee. I really have a small system. 2 SR250 Remotes 1 IPhone License 2 Outlet Dimmers 1 HC300 1 HC200 1 ipod Dock The system pretty much controls the family room TV, bluray, cable and now one light. The bedroom controls a TV, cable and two lights I also have whole house
  12. After moving to a new state a few months back, I searched for a new dealer so that I could explore some of the other features of the system that I have seen and heard of on this forum. Besides Best Buy who I wouldn't use I decided to go with a dealer that seemed like he knew what he was doing. Yes he was a mistake I had him add two Outlet Dimmers to my system and had him program some basic lighting scenes and I mean very basic. I have a lighting system now that is a separate system and I wanted to control a couple of lights with control 4 and see how I liked it with the system. So this was
  13. Thanks for the reply. If I must use a dimmer to control all of the loads how do I get a 3 or 6 button keypad wired in? Is it just like adding an outlet that is really a switch? Besides the zigbee upgrade is there any other reason to move to 2.1? From what I have read on here there seems to be some bugs on the 2.1version and I haven't seen any reason to upgrade when my software is working well. What can I expect for amount of time (hours) to go to 2.1. The original dealer said that the software was free because it came as an upgrade to my system when I bought it in 2010. This was to be a tw
  14. Hi All I have some questions on C4 controlling the lighting in my home. I did some searching on here but it actually makes me ask some more questions. In my old home I had a Insteon lighting system which ran my lighting and it was put in before my control4 system was. Since then I have moved and want to add back the automate lighting since it is really missed right now. I am trying to decide if I should add it to my control4 system or to stay with insteon. If I add lighting to my control4 system in my new house, can a 3 or 6 button keypad also control a load such as recessed lighting or do I
  15. Thank you, the one IR cable had a break in it, I swapped it out and got the TV working. The receiver I covered the IR with a piece of black electrical tape and now it is working also. I saw that there are dealers on here that would remote in to help with programming. Does any dealer have the drivers needed for Cisco cable boxes model numbers CHS335HDC & CHS435HDC what would the cost be for remoting into my system and adding those boxes?
