  1. What are your thoughts on the limited zwave products supported by C4?  With the new controller available my thoughts would be that it is marketed as a product that would be a mass market......however you would think with a mass market controller the product would support a stronger list of zwave devices.  As lower demographics in my area would invest in the lower price point of this controller .....  but still not be able to absorb the investment of the C4 lighting line over the lower investment of wave.

    Just curious about what you think...

      It could certainly use more. Problem is in part which one and what devices. Zwave lighting is plenty-full but ranges from perfectly fine to terrible quality.

       

      I do not in any way speak for C4, but I'd love to see more supported products myself. As for the reason why, your guess is as good as mine.

      Thanks ... what have you seen that causes you or your opinion that z wave is terrible quality?   All research leads one left with a “pick either” as they both have pros and cons.   I am sure you would agree that the marketplace is driven to a race to zero and with that race the research on the internet leads the typical user to a decision that there is no difference so why should I pay more?   You understand where I’m coming from?    Anyways you don’t have to reply I just am always open to the thoughts of others.   Thanks for your earlier reply.

    Plex

    Any suggestions on integrating plexus into C4? Should I use a roku or third party to integrate it? I am new to plex ... I am familiar with what it does but want to make it simple for my wife & two kids. My thoughts from what I read is 1st option use roku......and a video matrix to TV's (if tv is to be used) then I am able to use roku on the matrix 2nd option use roku on each tv>>>third option matrix the controller download a flex driver and use the navigator on the tvs? Any thoughts?
  3. I understand that... And I have a KA....I understand the yellow wire is not a traveler.....so again back to my scenario I was looking to have some advice not sarcasm...and I did read the diagrams .... Was using a SW120277 and 2 KA for a 4 way .... The wiring diagrams do not give this scenario or for that matter a 3 way scenario. I had an electrician with many years of experience (not automation) and when you have a KA at the middle location that has 2 travelers in and 2 out with only 1 hot on the KA and then the neutral it threw him and I am definitely not an electrician and don't claim to be...I was told to use the SW120277 and 2 KA for this design by C4....
  4. HOW DO YOU WIRE 1 NEXT GEN DIMMER TO TWO AUX KEYPADS .... OBVIOUSLY YOU HAVE A HOT & LOAD COMING IN AND GOING OUT HOWEVER ON THE AUXILARY KEYPADS THERE IS ONLY A HOT, NEUTRAL & GROUND......ACCORDING TO THE DOCUMENTATION YOU HAVE NO WAY TO CONNECT THE TRAVELER WIRES......IT TELLS YOU TO CONNECT A HOT WIRE AND THEN THE NEUTRAL AND THE GROUND. THAT LEAVES ME WITH ONE WIRE IN MY SWITCH BOX THAT HAS NO TERMINATION TO MY NEXT KEYPAD........OBVIOUSLY IN THE 4 WAY SCENARIIO I HAVE MY TWO INPUTS (TRAVELERS) AND TWO OUTPUT (TRAVELERS) AGAIN 1 HOT WIRE ON A KEYPAD AND ONE NEUTRAL. RATHER OR NOT I HAVE A 3 WAY OR A 4 WAY THERE IS NO WAY TO CONNECT THE TWO TRAVELERS AND OF COURSE TECH SUPPORT COULD NOT HELP ...
  5. What I'm trying to say is the DNS servers can not be changed they are "greyed out". If that makes sense

  6. So I have used the IP address username password and workgroup in all caps.   One of the C4 tech guys gave me a path and that is the one I was referring to in my earlier post.   I can log into the NAS via the IP address ..... But I am thinking the path is incorrect and am at a loss as to find the path within composer if that makes since.   Again if I leave the path blank that doesn't work and when I press browse it shows a network icon and I click that however does nothing . The path they gave me is\\WDMYCLOUD\PUBLIC

      If the network doesnt load (it can take 30 seconds) there may be some issue with the controller's ability to see the network.

  7. Anyone have a cinemate 130 driver
