  1. You in Austin (noticed 512 In your name)? I went thru this whole deal a couple years ago and finally found a reputable alarm guy. PM me if you want his contact info.
  2. End user... I strongly disagree. How would my nanny change the temp in my house? She doesn’t have a smart phone, my t-stat is deep in an AV closet, and I abandoned dedicated crappy touch screens long ago. She doesn’t speak English and all I had to do was show her the red button on the sr260 and she could use everything immediately. Sure I can select my audio/video sources on my remotes but the “coolness” of control4 would be completely gone for me if I didn’t see it come up on my TV when I hit the red 4 button. Im not your ideal client. I’ve got self installed Lutron lighting, security, sonos everywhere and a ton used of gear off eBay. Control4 ties it all together and the TV GUI is my favorite part. My system isn’t designed or relies on any single brand.
  3. Will Concord4 with Superbus2000 serial connected alarm work in 3.0? What’s the deal with Alarm drivers? I missed that part...
  4. I’ve got an hc250 with just 1 relay (garage door) and 1 serial (alarm) connected, it’s stashed in a garage closet with decent climate control. As I understand it I have to remove the controller to do the upgrade. What would y’all recommend I do to get those two things into my project? Ive got an EA3 but running wires over to it would suck real, real bad. I guess I could buy an EA1 for my rack and stick the ea3 in the garage closet, but this seems like a huge waste. Any other ideas? Thanks for the help!
  5. Can I get the camera stream into c4? Anyone done this?
  6. The previous owner screwed you by taking all the gear. How was this not addressed as part of the sale? The previous owner will get pennies for his used gear that will cost you thousands to replace. I’d attempt to contact them and see if you can buy that gear. Then it will just be install/programming costs. Only catch is if the gear is really old (>10ish years). In that case better to start over anyways. Doesn’t sound like that’s the case since it’s involving video distribution/hdbaset.
  7. I got Rangers on Fox Sports SW on Sling TV. I’ve been streaming only for 3 years (with Google Fiber) and wouldn’t go back. No go with Rockies?
  8. http://www.creativeaccesssolutions.com/index.php?id_product=3&controller=product This is the product I used, along with a cheap hc250. It basically makes the myq work with a regular relay. I had to buy this when my Genie motor was swapped for a myq. Does the job of soldering a remote except you don’t have to diy or ever change the batteries in the remote. No idea if it would work with your security setup.
  9. You need a good dealer... Bunch of solid options on this site who can fix your setup remotely for a fraction of the cost of a local guy.
  10. My hodgepodge end user DIY setup... Google Fiber Gigabit internet Google Fiber router/access point - 1500sq ft house Cisco dumb switches 24/8/8/5/5 ports Powerline Ethernet adapter from house to pool - not feasible to run cat5 Ruckus r510 at the pool Just kinda pieced this all together as my system and network has expanded over the past few years. It all just plain works. I see no reason to change it. My system is incredibly stable including all networked devices (don’t make me count them), C4, internet, etc. I do have dedicated hubs for Sonos and Lutron to keep those devices off my WiFi. My WiFi speeds on iPhone X are 500/500 in my house and 20/20 at my pool.
  11. I’d like to be able to view the feed in the C4 interface. Will that work on tv’s and iPhone? Or just TV/TS? The main goal is to be able to buy something that will not just be useless in a year or so like a true baby monitor (RF signal) My friends seem to be happy with Nest. I just don’t want to have to buy a blue iris server to get the feed in Control4. That the only option?
  12. So my wife has given me the job of finding a baby monitor. I’m pretty sure I’m just doing a local audio only monitor with a WiFi camera. 1. What is the current best option for cheap WiFi cam that works with C4? 2. Does Nest cameras work? How about the doorbell also? 2. Logitech Circle 2?
