  1. Hard to know where the issue is without seeing endpoints and programming.
  2. If you were starting from scratch maybe (probably not) but I couldn't imagine putting out that kind of investment to be going backward into a system like harmony at this point.
  3. I can see where you would speculate those possible scenarios but that's really just not what's going on. Control4 users probably make up less than 1/2 of a percent of sonos users if that. So at the end of the day Sonos really does not care about the CI channel. They'd rather have people using the sonos app so they can collect more data. This isn't just a Control4 integration issue either, it's a limitation with the Sonos API which is the same for all other control systems so clearly it's not just the guys at control4 not having the right conversation. The past several years Sonos has made it very clear with their actions that they have zero interest in supporting the CI channel, which you can't really blame them, they're really just a blip on the Sonos radar.
  4. Yeah I wouldn't get too excited about that.
  5. We just did a pretty killer LED job using converging systems e-node for control/integration. Should work with any RGB strip/fixture so you'd just have to find waterproof RGB stuff at that point. Can't imagine that would be too hard.
  6. You can now favorite icons to the home screen on a room by room basis, as well as rearrange and delete icons from the home screen. Since 2.9 you've been able to use the scenario driver to put custom icons on the GUI, now you just have the flexibility to favorite those custom icons. You can also now do custom background images per room as well. With a little tweaking you really can give a much more personal feel to the interfaces on a system.
  7. Is Airplay and Sirius don't work there is likely a network issue that wouldn't be solved with a new amp. Not saying the amp setup isn't janky though.
  8. Haha. that's not what happened at all. sometimes in the manufacturing world things happen that are beyond your control.
  9. You may want to dump the frame rate down. Too high of a frame rate and it's just too much to process and things get choppy.
  10. Agree with Alan, you need to get either Greg or your TFM involved. You really need to make sure you get the design right on this or it's going to be a big headache. Also I'd highly recommend getting the comm server and some of the other gear in ahead of time to test and get familiar. If you do it right though the MDU solution is pretty awesome.
  11. Honestly, if you can dim down to 2% that's pretty darn good. All you need to do is chop off the bottom 2% in the properties of the dimmer and you'll have a nice smooth dimming curve.
  12. Best idea I have is worry about controlling the power to something like your hot water heater to save that electricity and leave the matrix alone
  13. You need to elaborate on "MDU Services". Are you hoping to offer things like the ability to make calls from the touchscreen to the front desk, concierge services, etc? If so you will need a communication server, a well designed building network, and the proper gear in each unit. Or are you just going to have a bunch of stand alone project in the apartments?
  14. Please do but reroute that request to google. C4 isn't the hang up there. 😉
  15. It's completely unreasonable to expect a company like Control4 to grow at those rates but 12-15% which without checking and doing the math is likely the ballpark that they fall is decent growth. I was simply making the point that the sky is not falling with the dealer model like some people think. They are growing. My company is growing. We are expecting the housing market to slow down in 18 months(ish) but by no means am I feeling like this is the death of custom integration. Control4 is not equiped to open the floodgates to end users and even begin to support that. Regardless of people's feelings toward the matter I just cant see a scenario where that makes sense even if it does restrict future income.
