    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?
  2. 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....
  3. 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 ...

    Pandora

    I have a client that cannot get speeds any faster than 4 down and on a good .5 up,over uverse. I have a modem router combo and you cannot and they will not put it into bridged mode. THey will not provide a modem only. I have HC800 running director ... C4 audio 8x8 audio matrix .... HC250 in the theater and the amp is a Yamaha A2050 ... Everything running hard wired to the network. There is the apple extreme running in bridged mode only for wireless as well as a apple express hard wired as a wireless extender. The Pandora can stream all day long from the HC800 with no problems then all of the sudden it starts to experience network issues and will not play Pandora. If you try to remote connect to the system it will be vary sporadic and tech support can not establish a stable connection. I have spent countless hours using DOS to do a continual ping for drop outs....I have even taken devices off one att a time to try to pinpoint the issue. It is all new wring with certified cat5e connections. So last night my customer had a party and all day they played Pandora with no issues then once they had guests over and the Pandora stopped. They called ATT&T and of course they said it is a wiring issue. I really would like to resolve this issue as I am now working for free to resolve this... any suggestions >>
  6. Customer has a NAS drive ... Western Digital. ... I was able to uncover the name, password but the path does not work and it does t work without a path. With the path it acts like it is connecting with a progress bar but stops and stares it cannot find. This client moved here from another state and the C4 dealer had it on his system. I am trying to put this on a EA 3. None of the KB articles are solving the issue. Any help would be appreciated.
  7. I have a C4 dealer that has used the house logic one and he says it is identical and does the same thing ... You can wire 4 wire smokes but the Brinks smokes are proprietary. We tried to use system sensor on Brinks panels and the brings smokes we purchased from them on Vista panels and they wouldn't work.
  8. Anyone have a cinemate 130 driver
  9. I used to be a Brinks dealer ... if it has a brinks keypad you wont be able to control it. You would be able to convert it to a Vista panel however the smokes wont be compatible becasue they are 4 wire smokes. You would have to upgrade to a 32 or 128b panel to accomodate 4 wire smokes. If you stick with honeywell use the 4232 BCM module ... it works off the keypad bus and then RS 232 into your contoller .... i have done quite a few of these and have it in my showroom .... I will tell you the 2 way feed back doesnt work consistently for some reason and nobody understands why. I have a customer that I had to delete the devices from programming (i.e. front door ) becasue they showed open when they were closed however arming and disarming worked well. I am a security company as well as C4 dealer and I am thinking about switching panels to the Concord Express or the Networx series as they seem to work better with C4. Take a look at Qmotion shades. Im a draper dealer but migrating to Qmotion....
