  1. I’d like to flip a variable in c4 when blue iris detects motion on a camera. Has anyone figured out a way to do that? I’m going to use it to turn on some lights at night. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Same here. 54 for me but dealer told me everything is up to date. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Not to say it isn’t bad hardware but you might want to double check your power. I’m sure you have a battery backup but the power feeding the rack might not be optimal. Battery backups kick on at a certain level but it’s possible your running right at that level and it’ll be hard on the equipment. Should be able to usb from the battery backup to a laptop and see what you’re getting. I’d also make sure you have sufficient airflow inside the rack. Just my two cents. Doesn’t help you today but seems like you might have a problem somewhere. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks, exactly what I want. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I’m looking for a higher end all around sensor. One that includes motion, humidity, and temp. I’m open to how it might interface with C4. I just can’t seem to find one that kinda does it all. Any suggestions? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks, power state change works for me so I'm good. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. That was my fear. Ha. Kids are only 6 and they'd only use the remote controls. Just looking for a little parenting help from my home. I'm looking to limit two out of the 5 tv's so only two rooms. These would be two TV's I may use so I don't want to permanently limit them during time periods. In theory, I'd like to block all sources for that TV. Ideally I'd hit one other button on the remote which would unlock that TV. I don't want to disable the remote because wife won't like that.

  8. I'm trying to limit my kids TV usage and trying to figure out best way to do it. In concept, I'd like to force someone to push one or two buttons (adults) before allowing them to hit watch. Can someone point me in the right direction. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. If I change my dealer on control4.com, does my current dealer know I dropped them? Just ask because I'm going to use a remote dealer for some work but I also don't want to burn the bridge with the local guy. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. Loving this Alexa driver but gave up on trying to get it to speak to C4 to play music. Wanted to tap into Alexa's ability to make music selections, etc. Obviously difficult without an output audio port. That lead me into popping the bottom off Alexa and tapping into the speakers which I hardwired (Bluetooth really) into my audio switch. So now when Alexa speaks it comes through my home speakers. That brings me to my programming question, I want Alexa to play music through my speakers but not speak through those speakers. I'd like to say if audio switch senses audio for a full 5 seconds, only at that point assume music is playing and link to speakers. How would I configure that pause in sensing audio?

  11. Has anyone upgraded or even used the new qmotion zigbee motors they are now selling? The RF technology is junk (my opinion in a larger real life home install) and just want to make sure the zigbee option is a true 100 percent working product. Hopefully someone has been that test dummy. Ha. Anyone with any positive or negative feedback? Thanks Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Yes, all on one channel. I understand what your saying and have built in delays when calling more than one channel. I would think C4 would keep track of the last command it sent but I don't think that's the case. I never manually move my shades. All done through C4 so it seems like C4 would always know where the shade is at regardless of the lack of two way communication. I'm pretty disappointed in the product integration so far. Quality is fine but intregration isn't as smooth as I expected. Issues with all channels and locations. Luckily I only bought $10,000 worth of shades. I think I have another $20,000 to go and thinking I'll just go with Lutron. I feel I paid a ton of money for C4 and the shades so I want the frickin button to work every time. Ha
  13. I'm having a problem toggling my qmotion shades. The built in device specific commands for say channel 5 of open, close, 25%, 50%, and 75% all work fine. I was told that the built in toggle function would work within composer but i'm getting mixed results. For example, 3 shades in one room. 2 of the shades will toggle and the other one doesn't respond and seems to freeze for a period of time from accepting any commands. I know a lot of people use Qmotion so I'm hoping someone can share the code of exactly how they are toggling the blinds. I'd like to setup a keypad button that simply toggles a channel. My second question is related but I'll ask it separately. In this scenario, I have a single shade with a toggle keypad button. The toggle button sometimes doesn't work the first time. If I do it again, it does work. My assumption is that C4 doesn't know what position the shade is in so it somehow guesses and sends either an open or closed command. Not sure how it makes that decision. Maybe there is a built in variable that it's referencing? Any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks
