  1. I have this one as well. Never had a problem with it.
  2. I had my system upgraded to 3.0 this week and the free IT-100 driver no longer has the same problem. Not sure if a new version is available for 2.X as well?
  3. I as well as another user updated to the new IT-100 driver and were unable to disable partitions 2-8. Is anyone else having the same problem? It is annoying to have to select Partition 1 every time you go into the security system on the app.
  4. I have external port 81 forwarded to my computer running BI to support remote access. I could use C4 as you describe to access cameras, but I am not willing to give up all the features in the BI app - it just works too well. So I guess the choice is between allowing any LAN user (safe or not) unauthenticated access to my BI streams, or reduce the level of security (tho still have some) for the entire internet on port forwarded 81. Unauthenticated LAN access sounds like the better choice but I honestly may just forego the cameras in C4 all together.
  5. I am just getting around to integrating my Blue Iris cameras into C4. To do this, the instructions say to uncheck "use secure session keys and login page" in the Blue Iris web server settings. Alternatively, I have found that requiring authentication only from non-LAN users enables C4 to access the cameras (as C4 is on the same LAN) while apparently requiring secure session keys from non-LAN users. Any thoughts on which is better or what risk is exposed by unchecking secure session keys for all users? I do have port 81 exposed to enable remote access to BI so I am somewhat hesitant to take down a security barrier.
  6. If you are budget conscious, suggest you explore decoupling alarm monitoring from your Control4 dealer. I pay a local company in my area $17/mo for cellular monitoring with no contract. At that price, I was not motivated to try and DIY the cellular connection. If internet based monitoring is acceptable for you, there are options that come at $0 monthly fee. Any monitoring company should be able to switch you over.
  7. Where are you located? Do you pay the alarm monitoring fee directly to the monitoring company or to your C4 dealer? What is your basis for saying that all changes must go through the C4 dealer?
  8. I am also very tech savvy and a fan of DIY when possible. My C4 system is integrated with a DSC alarm and I recently changed monitoring companies. If you are only changing the monitoring (as I did), there was no work required in C4. The new monitoring company just replaced the cellular communication box with a new brand with their own SIM and did a bit of alarm programming. And honestly, not sure you will save any money trying to use a T-Mobile sim vs using what they provide. My new provider charged me $89 to do this and did not even require a contract. Is your current system monitored by ADT? From what I remember in past research, those systems can be locked down pretty hard to limit the ability to take the equipment to another provider. Not sure about your specific model tho. Good luck!
  9. My IrrigationCaddy kept crashing and I thought I fixed it by disabling the IC cloud but then it kept losing its IP address. I recently replaced it with a Rachio2 and have been super pleased with the upgrade. Agree 100% about being worth the switch.
  10. Just figured it out. I am very strict about not allowing apps notification ability on iOS. When I went into iOS settings and allowed notifications for the Control4 app, the device appeared in control4.com and I was able to get it working.
  11. I am just now getting around to trying to make push notifications work. I am running 2.10 and have multiple devices appear on customer.control4.com under Account->Devices. But when I go to Automation -> Notifications I get the following message: No mobile devices on your account which support notifications. Please install or upgrade the Control4 application on your mobile device. What do I need to do in order to get push notifications working? All devices are iOS and have the latest app installed.
  12. Are you sure about this? All of my dimmers are legacy on 2.10 and all of the features you described still work on my system.
  13. Are you sure the factory reset worked? Which exact model did you purchase? Only the HC-300C has the factory restore feature (the rest require a USB stick).
  14. I have a couple legacy dimmers where the toggle is losing its crispness... meaning the nice click is gone and it is sometimes unclear if the on/off action has been initiated. I have several embernet switches laying around that are no good to me - has anyone taken a dimmer apart to see if the radio can be swapped into a newer (or better functioning) body? Or found a way to clean the inside contacts to regain the click?
  15. Just purchased 2 brand new LDZ-102 white dimmers only to find out they are still on embernet. They have been powered up but are otherwise in mint condition. Face plates included. I paid $120 for the pair but make me an offer.
