  1. Driver works as designed except for double inputs on the up and down. commands.
  2. I've finally gotten ahold of an ELEMENT TV REMOTE! Now to find some batteries. Driver inbound soon
  3. My Web services are fantastically fast. So I'm looking for near real-time event executions. What would be best? And by chance do you have any example syntax I can disect? I know that's asking slot. But I thought ide ask.
  4. I guess I'm curious if you just responded for the sake of responding... Sure great web hooks, does that imply that the controller is constantly polling the web hook with an interval timer? Or is there a more efficient and less taxing way? - - Sent from my potato.
  5. We have a cloud service that has web events. For the driver creators out there like Alan and blackwire. What is in your opinion the best way to send events into control4 from the web? I guess im asking a dumb qustion more so anybody know the best and most efficent way besides a poling loop of looking to the cloud via a timer interval.
  6. I found the remote to the TV! So when I get home Ill share the whole thing with ya.
  7. Don't stress it I come from the position of a person who writes drivers including the webview driver I see a lot of dealers in general get wildly confused with the capacity of webview apps It's probably because webview is a brand new entity that is limited to the touch screens of the T3 series only A good chunk of dealer is out there will download a driver expecting full control across all platforms because that's what they typically see or have seen over the years Don't misunderstand I'm not calling dealers fools I'm just saying they get confused a lot with this new Webdriver which hasn't been out for very long Just imagine if the navigator on the EA series could do full-screen webview with opengl capacity and JavaScript navigation Just imagine the awesome apps we could make
  8. I think a lot of you should read up on WEBVIEW Features the T3 Series introduced. As All these drivers coming out saying WEBVIEW are literally just predefined browser portals with ZERO integration into control4 Event systems. Read up on the release notes of 2.9.0.
  9. Thanks Ryan that was exactly what I was looking for!
  10. Hey guys, Im getting a much better understanding of the Control4 Driver Universe. I can write some nice drivers now. However I am having some mental blocks when reaching across the table to find elements like thermostats or lights in a project. Is there a good way or code example to bring a listed drop down of electable thermostats? I am attempting to read the temperature value of the thermostats in a project and bring them into my driver. I have not worked deep into the functions of this yet and was wondering if anybody had a good pointer for it?
  11. All valid ideas above. Ide suggest a wifi extender with watchdog and bridge features. That way the wifi handshake system is handled by the extender. If you static the controller too then the handshake in the ea1 will have a higher chance of holding the connection. Then no need for a power reboot at all.
  12. The relay de-rail is my bad. I was thinking way too far outside the box for you. however if it makes you feel any better I've had scenarios where I had no choice but to use a Linksys repeater for said situations. Wattbox makes a good unit that doesn't completely go off the rail when it comes to bandwidth. You also can get a wireless extender with the Watchdog built into it to maintain Wireless connectivity. Engenius access point actually have a bridge mode you can use if you want to go with one of those types of products and they're really good but again they come at a cost. It would be really cool for the EA to be able to do that and I promise you I've been asking the control4 team to do that for a long time now since the 250 series and they keep talking about how it could be potential but not in the cards at the time which is really just them saying is we don't know how yet I'm thinking it's because the controllers network card is on a Linux level and doesn't run inside the virtual environment directly and I know they hedge when it comes to modifying the Linux kernel to do said things even though it's very much possible
  13. It's actually quite sad but true the ea1 doesn't even have a relay me A3 has a relay that only goes up to 36 volts AC The old 300 series totally could handle the amperage but I totally understand why they avoid it it feels like a liability The 800 had an external power supply so it totally could But now that you've replied to your post I kind of see what you're really trying to go after and I don't believe that the ea1 will be able to do Network pass-through from the Wi-Fi I think you would have to get something like a Linksys extender or something of better equivalency
  14. You can do a EA3 and use the relay on NC. So it self sacrifices itself using the power cable to reboot. This is how I handle EA watchdogs. Using Alan's ping driver
  15. Not the apps fault apple changed policy. The update fixed the app so it would not crash due to the change.
