  1. Unfortunately the Roku Ultra is not available in the UK (or at least is not compatible with BBC iPlayer) which is very frustrating given the reliance on WiFi for the other Rokus
  2. I sent an email and PM some time ago but haven’t heard anything so I don’t know what the status is but I am interested in two deadbolts if available? Thanks
  3. Definitely don’t listen to me on anything technical but the prompt for my comment was if the original poster was planning Lutron lighting, presumably they have had Lutron cables installed? While it may be easy to swap from Savant to Control4, I don’t know if the same is true for lighting?
  4. We are in the U.K. and have also just finished a newbuild house. We used Lutron lighting and shades which has been good and we are about to do a Control4 installation for other aspects of the house (general automation, AV, etc), although Control4 installation will be gradual. I understand Control4 and Lutron work well together. From our perspective, having a solid lighting system in first was important and then we could add the home automation system later. Did you use Lutron or CAT6 cabling throughout? I get the impression Lutron cabling is just expensively priced cable with less cores than CAT6 but that is what our Lutron dealer specified.
  5. Hello, I am looking for two deadbolt locks compatible with Control4. My Control4 dealer here in the U.K. says the locks are not available here. I had heard references to a non-US version on the boards here. Can anyone sell two of these to me (new or used!)? Or will the US version work here (and can someone sell me new locks they are willing to post)? Thanks
  6. Does anyone have spare rack ears for the Triad AMS24 matrix which I can buy? Or can I buy it as a spare part from Control4? Thanks!
  7. So are both the R series and the bronze, silver, etc discontinued? Are the IC range such as IC82 materially better? Just wondering whether some of the older ones are worth picking up more cheaply. Thanks!
  8. Is there any comparison of the different Triad in-ceiling speaker ranges? I have been looking at the Triad bronze and silver speakers but there is also the R range - how does bronze compare to R06 for example? Presumably I can use a mix of speakers around the house (but keep the same type of speaker in each room)? Thank you
  9. I would, if they sold it in the U.K.! And you can’t buy the American version if you want UK apps like BBC iPlayer which won’t install on the American Roku. Thanks everyone!
  10. Sorry for the basic question - I haven’t yet got my C4 system installed but I want to buy equipment that is compatible (and I would prefer to use IP drivers for everything). I need to buy a media player (Roku, etc) and I have read the discussions about which is best. However, I don’t think I understand the mini apps. I want to dispense with multiple remotes (TV, media player, Kaleidescape) and use the C4 remote for everything. In order to do this, do I need a mini app for the online services I use (iPlayer, Netflix, prime, itvhub, etc)? For example, I see there is an iPlayer driver on the C4 database. Or is the mini app just to put a shortcut on the C4 OSD and not related to actual app control so it is not worth getting too hung up about it because the device and streaming services on it still work with the C4 remote? I would like a media player with wired ethernet but Roku Ultra is not available in the U.K. so I could go for Apple TV or NowTV but I understand neither of these drivers have mini apps and I don’t know whether this is a big point or not! If I need mini apps, I could buy a Roku Express which is available in the UK but that is WiFi only. I will also get a C4 compatible TV soon (probably Samsung Frame) - hopefully I can use the built-in streaming apps on this with the C4 remote? I guess this doesn’t have a mini apps so the same question applies! Thank you and sorry for the ignorant question!
  11. Great. Is there anything which describes what it does? In particular, can you control the apps like iPlayer, etc? Thanks!
  12. This is a very old thread but does anyone know if the NowTV Smart Box work with C4’s Roku driver? I want an ethernet port so can’t use Roku Express and Roku Ultra is not available in the U.K. Thanks
  13. What makes the Triad better than V3? I am also wondering whether to buy a secondhand V3 or wait to buy a new Triad in the future... Do these need to be setup by dealers or can I do it? Thanks!
  14. SolarEdge (http:// http://www.solaredge.com) seems to be a popular solar generation monitoring system with an API. Is anyone interested in creating a driver for it? It would be great to know when lots of solar energy is being generated and then trigger high energy use equipment. One such use would be to charge an electric car when solar power is generated. Renault have an API for My Z.E. which allows for starting charging.
  15. Thank you - that is really helpful!
