  1. Hi 1. This driver works very well with OS 3.0 2. No other parts needed. The driver will connect with one of the 3 myLinks which will, in turn communicate with the other 2. 3. Yes. Other benefits: the main benefit is the % model. I hope this helps.
  2. All our drivers on DriverCentral are enabled for LuaJIT. This happens automatically if you are on the latest version and you update to OS 3.0.
  3. Yes, ever since I found this bug on Saturday. Went back and forth with C4 during the Memorial Day weekend to try and pinpoint the issue, as it occurred only recently. I’m glad that C4 were able to resolve this quickly, but it was very stressful to imagine all the projects running the driver not being able to upgrade ! In any case, this is now behind us and we can concentrate our efforts on all the good stuff in OS 3.0. Sincere thanks to all for your patience and understanding. Paul Biron
  4. All the Domosapiens drivers available on DriverCentral are now JIT-enabled to benefit from this new execution environment under OS 3.0. Either Auto Update or download the most recent versions. Paul Biron
  5. Our driver covers essentially all RTS controllers with motion simulation (%open/closed). It supports groups and offers a lot of flexibility in configurations. The main RTS controllers you could use are: myLink (the newest in the group), URTSI II and the RS485 RTS transmitter (popular in Europe). It has a 7-day free trial period.
  6. Our Somfy driver, available on driverCentral, fully supports the RS485 RTS transmitter and includes the new blind interface available since OS 2.9.
  7. All the Sinope thermostat drivers use the new Navigator interface, including presets and schedule.
  8. Yes, it does, for each button of the keypad. The driver has a property to specify if you are using double or triple taps anywhere. If so, the driver will ensure that the single tap event is not triggered if you do a double tap (there will be a small delay). Similarly, single and double will not be triggered if you do a triple tap.
  9. Have a look at our Keypad Enhancer driver on driverCentral (Domosapiens). It adds several capabilities to a C4 keypad, such as: MultiPress & Hold, 8th virtual button, mutually exclusive events, Keypad lockout, Up/Down Selector, LED Color and Blinking.
  10. The dealer cost has just been revised. MSRP is now $55 USD.
  11. My understanding is that io-homecontrol uses European-only frequencies and would possibly not be allowed in North America. Also, it is a closed protocol, limited only at this time to Somfy control units, not open to being controlled by a home automation system like Control4. This might change, but for now, RTS looks like it is still Somfy's wireless approach in North America.
  12. You will be able to control from Control4 by connecting the URTSI to a serial port and using an appropriate driver. No wires to the blinds other than power are required. Make sure first that you can operate your blinds using the Somfy remote, then program the URTSI and verify that it operates the blinds (it has buttons) and then Control4. You can try the Domosapiens driver on HouseLogix for free during 2 days.
  13. Let me see if I can help a bit (I wrote the Somfy driver referenced by blub). This driver supports Somfy RTS (one-way) blinds via the new Somfy myLink interface, which is an IP-connected device. It also supports Somfy SDN (two-way) blinds via the Somfy UAI interface, which is a serially-connected device (RS232). After adding the interface driver (capable of supporting myLink and UAI simultaneously), you add one blind driver for each blind in your project. Each blind can then be defined as an RTS blind or an SDN blind. The installation is quite straightforward. The other alternatives for controlling Somfy RTS blinds typically use the Somfy 16-channel URTSI II in North America or the Somfy 16-channel RT485 RTS Transmitter elsewhere. Free drivers exist with limited functions, but I have a driver on HouseLogix which supports virtually everything RTS, along with an elaborate timing model which interfaces nicely with the new blind interface available in OS 2.9.
  14. I learned Lua specifically to write C4 drivers and really love the language, especially tables. Ryan's perspective above makes a lot of sense.
