  1. If Savant had more dealer support, they’d be hard to beat. The product has a more premium feel and is much smoother than Control4. I’m not bashing C4, I’m obviously using it. But it’s simply because there is only one dealer in my area and I cannot get support. Control4 is clunky. And even with the OS3 upgrade, still looks cheap. The only two things that keep it in my home is awesome support from the dealer I use; and that it works with may more third party devices. Otherwise, there is no comparison.

  2. Harmony Elite and SmartThings ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Super frustrating. Happens a few times a week but I’ve learned that I’m better off going with as many locally controlled items as possible. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Mine was through the C4 dongle. No experience with Vera because I had a lot of trouble with it when I used it stand alone. I’m using the August connect now with Yale locks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Completely understand. I’m a nurse and we are still taking extra precautions. If you aren’t happy with him, there are remote oriole that would be happy to help. I use Ari. He is on this forum and is extremely helpful. I’m sure he can get you that card if that’s what the issue is. But it could be interference. Pull the card out of the lock and reinstall. If it’s not either of those things then I might think of swapping the card. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Control4 has a proprietary zigbee signal. Most of the time you can’t find them in the wild except through your dealer. I’m not sure I would go straight to replacing your card. How old is the lock? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. You would. Best bet with rose zigbee locks of to replace batteries first anyway. Could have gotten a bad batch. Next would be for the integrator to see what the zigbee signal is. They would have to look at it but could handle that remotely. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. There are different cards but if you don’t have the little gateway, it’s surely zigbee. I was asking because I just had the Yale locks with the WiFi gateway added a week ago and they both stopped responding in Control4. That would be your issue though if you have zigbee locks.

  9. Fours it require a little white box that plugs into an outlet near the lock? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I don’t remember being able to manage codes through the z-wave lock. Seems like it was missing a few things. As far as Vera vs. C4 dongle, there are far more device types you can use with the Vera. C4 dongle only supports a handful of items. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Is it the Yale lock with Control4 zigbee card or with the August connect? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I had one connected through C4 z-wave dongle. While it was super reliable through the previous Smartthings setup, not so much after I removed all of the other z-wave devices. The lock needs help getting signal of your a-wave dongle is far away. It’s a great lock but unless you’re going to add other devices, I’d stay away and use something else.

  13. Mine has disconnected three times this week. Hopefully they get it fixed soon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Interestingly enough, it will not disarm with a macro ties to a custom button. I then decided to try and use the scheduling agent. Scheduled it or disarm and arm at a certain time. I ran the action from the scheduler and got nothing. Then I walked away and forgot about it. Amazingly, the scheduler is running both arm and disarm perfectly. It’s really weird.

  15. Using the Roku driver. I feel like someone from the company that made the driver contacted me and was able to set it up for me. I’m positive I was seeing two way feedback. My wife liked the Roku remote on her iPhone because it offers the keypad when searching for things. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
