  1. UPDAPTE So I ran the calibration with in the Automate app that that has seemed to help with the state of the window. Since I'm not up at this house all the time I have not had the time to fully test it yet but it seems to be working. I'm still having that issue where the icon is showing partially open even when the shade is closed at 0% If I don't use the sider but press the icon to close...it will then show up as closed. See attached image. The icons that show closed were pressed to close. The icons that show open use the sider to close to 0%
  2. Hello, I just installed new shades in my house from the company the Shade store. It uses a Wi-Fi hub and connects to control for using a driver called automate. The driver works great with control for. No issues opening or closing the shades. The only issue I seem to be running into is that sometimes control for is out of sync with the state of the shade. So a shade might be completely closed so at 0% but control for a showing it open at 100%. If I use the slider and move it to 50% the shade will go to 50% so it is telling the shade what to do but again sometimes just not sho
  3. Thanks for this information. I'm stilling having issuues. On main house system the triggers that I had are working but having a very difficult time adding new triggers. I was able to successfully add new triggers last week but when trying today it will not work. The vacation house system still having the same issues as before. I hope that Ari and team can get it figured out as his system is so much better than the native C4 version.
  4. Hi All, I'm looking for some help. I have the epic drive both in my main house and my vacation house. My main house is working fine and let's me add new devices. This version of the driver has a button I press called "Send Discovery" I my vacation house, this version of the driver does not have the send discovery button under actions but when I tried adding triggers via telling Alex to discover new devices it worked fine and added the triggers as normal. But now I'm trying to add a few more triggers and no matter what I do I can't get it to discover the new devices that I've
  5. So...update today since I'm up at the house. - I put in brand new batteries yesterday and lock was working again - This morning when I walked by the lock I heard it making a very faint ticking sounds...almost like a clock...and the batteries are dead. Less than 24 hours. And now I'm having issues with all my locks. I can see the status of the locks in C4. When I manually lock the lock or unlock the lock I see the change instantly in C4. However all the sudden now none of the locks will except a lock or unlock command. But clearly it on the Z wave net work because it's chan
  6. Other than plugging it in what else do I need to do? Do I need to add it to my control for system as an outlet? Thanks!
  7. Got it...so a z wave plug and then connect it to the same USB dongle to help extend range? One my my locks battery died with in like 2 weeks so that's odd.
  8. Hello, I have 4 Schlage Connect Z-Wave + locks that are connected to my C4 system at my vacation property. I'm using the USB Z Wave dongle to control them. They were all working great for a while but recently I'm noticing that one stopped locking and unlocking, others seem to not always show the correct status. Example the door is unlocked but it will show that is still locked from a week ago. Anybody else seeing this? I know this would work better with a C4 version lock but I was not able to find a Schlage version that matched the look of the hardware so hoping I can get t
  9. Is there a way in advanced lighting to make changes to ALL loads with in the scene with out having to go one by on? Example...I'm making a scene that's "All Lights On." When I add the loads they are all off. I want to set them all to 100% and change all the rates to 2 seconds. Is there a way to to all of this at once vs. one by one? Thanks!
  10. I don't have the system up and running yet as I just had the fixtures and dimmers installed. I'm guessing around 50% but the noise starts as soon dimming starts. Do you think maybe I need and Adaptive Phase C4 dimmer? I'm so sorry but I'm not sure what "trim them" means. Can you give me more information? I'm using the essential dimmer on 2 other chandeliers using LED bulbs and it works fine? This make sense to me but I can't seem to find LED bulbs that have a higher watt ratting. I can look into the link you provided below. THANKS ALL FOR THE HELP.
  11. My main house has a C4 system and now I'm putting one in my 2nd vacation home. I'm using the new Essential Dimmers - They are working great for my recessed LED lights - They are working great in my dining room chandelier using 6 small LED bulbs In my bathrooms we have vanity lights and using these bulbs (2) - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08357GL8D/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 At full 100% they work great and don't make a noise. As I dim they start buzzing and flickering. This is happening in all bathrooms with the same bulbs. An
  12. Thanks all. I just had the Napoleon installed at my vacation place so I don’t have the remote in hand yet. But heading up this week and I’ll check it out.
  13. Anybody know if the BOND system will control this napoleon fireplace? https://www.napoleon.com/en/us/fireplaces/products/fireplace-products/gas-fireplaces/ascent-multi-view-series/ascent-multi-view-bhd4pgn Thanks!
  14. I’ve had my ELK alarm system hooked up to my C4 for 6+ years and it has worked great. Recently I’ve been getting a strange screen showing up when arming. Here is process Security System -> Arm Away -> Enter Code Then I get screen that says “Unable to Arm. All sensors are secure.” I can “Continue or Cancel”. If I hit Continue the system will arm as normal I think. (Image attached) Just not sure what’s causing this screen. Anybody else seen this? I feel like at some point after a power outage when everything recycled this went away for a while but then came back.
