  1. I must say... these look impressive!
  2. Have a look in the History Agent and see what it says there. Turn off info and only look at the other 2 event types. I have found the following (again, my case is slightly different to yours): - mine shows up at seemingly random times. - mine shows up in the History Agent (in Composer) as Security/unused/3150/Arm failed or something like that. - today, I realized that the 3150 (which is sometimes 3148 or 3149) is the device ID of partition 4 (or 2 or 3) in my security driver (even though I actually only have 1 active partition). For some reason, the 7 unused partitions are (occasionally doing their own thing). - if I look on my T3 (any of them) these all appear as “arm failed” in history. - if I look on the C4 app on my iPad, these don’t appear... clearly the iPad is more clever and only looks at messages pertaining to a genuine partition. For genuine partition history items, the “Unused” in the History Agent (within Composer) changes to “1 Skynet Place” where “1 Skynet Place” is my address (not really) and the name of my Partition in the Driver. Very weird!
  3. A bit weird. Not dissimilar to my alarm issues (but not fully the same). I have a DSC, so if the issues are related, they are not a driver issue. My problems started when my whole system started to struggle. I am hoping the CA10 will fix everything but am a bit worried that I will install it and all other issues will be fixed but the alarm problems will remain. Certainly hope not! Lots of red herrings - me thinks!
  4. @Gary Leeds UK - as a matter of interest, what make of alarm and what driver?
  5. Reading the specs posted above for the CA10, I see that it can handle 1000’s of devices. On the C4 website, I think that I read that the EA5 can do hundreds of drivers and devices. We did a quick count of drivers on my system today and it was somewhere between 650 and 700. My dealer deleted 20 or 30 driver instances that I don’t use today in the hope that I can limp along for 2 weeks until my CA10 arrives...
  6. There is a new driver (I am 99% sure) in my project... It is called “Remote Hub” and has appeared (I think) in the first room of my project as part of the OS3.1 update. Anyone know what this is?
  7. Thanks... I’ve heard a lot about Kodi and Plex but don’t really know what they do. I need to look into this.
  8. Is there a better way to link Movies into C4 from a NAS?
  9. Yip... Collection Management driver for MyMovies is also no longer working for me (with a Dune).
  10. Interesting! I unplugged the RS232 connection for my alarm and still had the same issues so am (99%) sure that the alarm system, is not the issue.
  11. I have had various issues: 1. Latency issues (as you describe) but only in the last few weeks. 2. Unable to log in using the iOS app. 3. The navigator on the T3s gets all messed up (wall paper disappears, wake and sleep Agent loses the number in the middle, some thermostats lose the number, cursor becomes a circle of death for minutes - not seconds etc.). 4. My security driver started firing off code that happens when a panic is triggered despite the panic not being triggered (at first we thought this driver was the root cause, but it does not seem to be). Etc. .
  12. Yeah... I’ve learned... I have too many controllers in my project and somehow we missed checking this one and, for whatever reason, it must be first in the queue... I don’t really get that part. My poor dealer was convinced ha had checked this remotely... but clearly not!
  13. I am very interested to. I would probably have bought the CA10 anyway just to see what it did but given the problems I’ve had for the last 2 or 3 weeks, I now “have to”. I have convinced myself (and, I think, my dealer) that this I have some sort of resource issue. We played around a lot today. If I take any 4 non-essential items out of my project, I can reboot and get things up and running and stable. If I take any 2 items out, I can coax the system up and it seems to work... if I leave my project as is (i.e. remove nothing), it is a disaster and things fall apart within half an hour. I have settled on unplugging one T3 and one DS2 and am going to try and nurse things along like that for 2 weeks until the CA10 arrives!
  14. Apparently it will take 2 weeks to get a CA10 to me... I must say, I am keen to play... but wow what a price tag 😓 It had better last me 10 years plus!
  15. Was a stupid error... volume had muted on one of my controllers 🙈 when the update happened. Dealer is feeling silly as he remoted in and missed this... probably because I am having so many other issues this week, we both over-complicated this one
  16. My dealer is out again today checking on this...
  17. To be honest, I can’t recall everything but I know they are fairly full. Main items that I can think of: 1. Irrigation 2. Underfloor heating 3. Power sensing 4. Gate control and sensing for a gate that is not linked to the security system. 5. I think my pool links through an IO extender but I may be wrong. Can’t recall if an IO extender has RS232. 6. Control of DVR and various other items that I want to be able to reboot by dropping power at the push of a button from within C4 7. Aircons 8. Heat pumps and circulating pumps
  18. Thanks for the interest. What is strange in my situation is that no new drivers have been added in the last month or two although we have added 30 or 40 instances of existing drivers / sensor types etc. From memory, my system covers approximately the following: 26 virtual (C4) rooms 130 lighting circuits (all with keypad dimmers or switches and an additional 10 standard alone keypads) 12 audio zones 3 video zones (over and above the audio zones) Around 10 video inputs (via a matrix) and 2 AVRs Pentair swimming pool, chiller and spa integration (including 7 pumps, 2 heat pumps, 1 chiller pump, 20 or so auxiliary and lighting circuits). 10 “zones” of underfloor heating (thermostats and underfloor hearing itself) 2 heat pumps for underfloor heating and a further 2 circulation pumps. 10 “zones” of air conditioning (each controlled separately - I.e. no central Aircon controller). DSC security system with 64 zones (around 50 used). 12 cameras coming in from 2 different systems 2 DS2 door stations 10 zones of irrigation (using native C4 drivers only). 5 IO extenders 5 EA1s 2 HC800s 1 EA5 (Director) a further 30 thermostats used to display variables 100 Driver instances from Driver Central (mainly Chowmain) 2 Annex4 drivers 3 Blackwire drivers (TTS, renamer and emojis - around 20 instances of the latter). 3 garage doors 2 gates Basic energy monitoring Around 100 native sensors (some linked to security, others linked to other contacts and relays) Around 40 native C4 experience buttons (controlling items like jacuzzi covers) Lots of programming (couple of hundred macros, couple of hundred variables, 100+ timers, 30 or so emails set up and 30 or so push notifications - these have not been set up efficiently) 200 or so movies, 500 or so CDs in MyMovies and MyMusic 6 Tidal drivers 8 Shairbridge drivers 3 blinds 4 T3s 250 Alexa voice scenes, devices and lights / lighting scenes The Wakeup goodnight Driver in a few rooms. A few other drivers from individual developers. I am sure that I am missing some items...
  19. Yes. I cannot get any digital source (MyMuisc, Tidal etc.) to play on 3.1
  20. Updating the driver in situ will be a big plus... do you have an ETA?
