  1. at this point Control4 should not be working on a new Mac or Windows app. should be web based.
  2. It looks like Dish network has launched their Smart Home install business. I still say they should have bought C4 back then. http://about.dish.com/2019-06-17-DISH-launches-OnTech-Smart-Services-a-new-direct-to-consumer-smart-home-solutions-brand?utm_source=t.co&utm_medium=referral
  3. No it doesn’t. If you want just basic lighting control though you won’t be disappointed in the integration. Works great. You could always mix in some Control4 keypads if you wanted. For the price, it’s hard to beat Lutron Caseta.
  4. im not the one on here claiming to be 17 years old, and for what reason i have no clue.
  5. Apparently not old enough to understand why you told me your age and asked mine.
  6. Thank goodness you created an account to post this. You have totally changed their minds.
  7. I actually kind of agree with you. No reason for a TV user interface to be used for adjusting lighting and thermostats. With that said, when you take functionality away, people will get upset. I would actually take it a step further and get rid of the OSD all together. Lot of wasted software and hardware development time for something that probably rarely gets used outside showrooms and marketing videos.
  8. This has been my philosophy and it has served me well. I have a good size whole home system with security, 8 zones of whole home audio, 4 video zones, cameras and lighting control and the only Control4 equipment I have is a EA-1 and 4 remotes for the video zones (I have an HC-250 in my den too but it is just really doing IR so I’ll probably just replace it with a global cache). I have no complaints. I’ve been saying for awhile that the EA-1 is the best deal in all of pro automation. Can easily power a whole home.
  9. An IO extender can be used to run a project?
  10. Yep that’s what I’m saying. I don’t like the controller and AV being mixed together. Just personal preference. Feel like they should be separate systems. Having AV built into a controller adds a failure point and is also a big reason why the lifespan of them are shortened. I agree with you that IP is the future and almost all my stuff except TVs and security system are controlled by them.
  11. No it doesn’t. I’m talking about making a controller that doesn’t do audio or video but has multiple IO ports. Would be less likely to run into hardware limitations in future upgrades.
  12. just take your medicine on that one. you were wrong. it was obvious that the CA-1 was real and all the documents were out there.
  13. I wish they would have extended the life of the HC-250 to at least allow it to be for IO and a Zigbee extender but oh well. C4 usually does a good job of hardware life. It would be even better if they would get rid of the audio and video portions on the controllers. Especially video.
