  1. Ok I would like to thank everyone for their input. I am now going to start on this garage door project. I have read all of the suggestions and the helpful howto's. I have a good sense of what I need to do but still a few questions I was hoping to get your help with. A. Garage door status/sensors. So I plan to put contact sensors on the garage door and connect these to a Z2IO located in the garage. I know I have Zigbee range there because there are C4 light switches in the garage. Here are my questions. Note I have only one garage door. 1. contact sensors. @RyanE helpfully suggested getting two sensors so that I can have a closed and an open state. As I understand it what this means is that I will put the garage in a closed position and then mount sensors to be "in contact" when the garage in this position and those sensors will be indicating the closed position of the garage. Then I will do the same with the garage open and a second pair of sensors. Is this correct? 2. garage-specific sensors. Again @RyanEhelpfully suggested using "garage-specific sensors" because they mount better. Can you suggest a specific product to buy? 3. programming. Finally, once I have the hardware in place, this will need to be included in my C4 project obviously. I suppose at this point I ask my dealer to get involved? My dealer is generally very good so I trust he will be able to handle it. I just tell him that my garage door is no longer controlled by the defunct MyQ driver but now its state should be read from the state of these sensors? Note that I do quite a lot of programming myself in Composer HE. So all I really need is the garage door to appear in my project with the actions of "open" and "close" and with events like "garage door opening" etc. and I can take it from there. B. Controlling the garage door. I will solder a spare remote. I think I can figure out how to do that. And then from what I understood from your suggestions the wire will then be connected to another Z2IO either in the garage or connected directly to the controller via an "IO extender" in the rack. I would prefer to connect it directly to the controller because I know that my rack is within Garage-Remote-Range of the garage door. Questions: 1. I have an HC800. What input on the HC800 am I connecting to? This is one aspect of the installation that your suggestions were a little short of details on. How do I obtain the IO extender? 2. programming again. I suppose again this part will require the involvement of my dealer. Again I just need the actions to be available to me in Composer HE and I can take it from there. Thanks again for the super helpful people on this great forum and I look forward to your answers.
  2. do you (or anyone) have a howto you could share? i think its time my 16 yr-old learned how to solder.
  3. I have been using the DriverCentral MyQ driver for my Liftmaster garage door. Yes it has been working just fine. Until today. Talking with DriverCentral support they told me that existing accounts had been grandfathered (meaning that Liftmaster was allowing their driver to communicate but only on existing accounts, not any newly created accounts). But as of today my existing account (havent changed username or password) can no longer check in through the driver. I think I am not the only one that was still able to use this driver. Is there anyone out there that had been using it, is it still working for you? Thanks.
  4. hi everyone, i just upgraded from 2.x to 3.2 (finally) and its great! but i can no longer ssh to director and login as root using either the standard (t0tal...) password or the one i had previously changed it to. i do recall reading some thread here about how password changes were no longer possible in 3.x or something like that. should i be able to ssh into director and login as root? if i cannot how am i supposed to reboot the controller now? (i always did it by logging in as root and issuing reboot) thanks as always for your help.
  5. We use an SR-260 to turn on the TV (Watch-> Roku for example). We don't want our 13 year old turning on the TV after midnight. I would like to trap the button press (Selecting Roku for example) with programming that first checks the time and if its after midnight (and before 10am say) does nothing. What's the best way to do this? Thanks in advance.
  6. Hey everyone, here is a fun integration project: There are on the market "doggy doorbells" that you put by a door and train a dog to activate in order to alert you that he has to go outside to do his business. Has anyone come across a product like this that could act as a doorbell in C4 so that I can program an announcement to play throughout the house? Or maybe something like this could be kludged out of a standard doorbell. Any thoughts?
  7. The MyQ app lists the following as "works with MyQ": Amazon Key Tend Nest Alarm.com Wink Xfinity home Google Assistant IFTTT Honeywell So maybe another route is to integrate these systems and go through them. I think I used to use Wink but for some reason it stopped working. I can't remember exactly. Google Assistant? I do have Alarm.com, but not integrated with C4. Any thoughts on these alternatives?
  8. I vaguely recall hearing there was a cinegration driver as well? Or is that the same as driver central?
  9. I have been using the Houselogix Liftmaster MyQ driver for a few years without a problem. Yesterday it stopped communicating with my Garage Door opener. In Composer HE Properties for the driver I see that the License Status is still "Activated" but when I go the Actions tab and click "Get Account Devices" the Lua window shows Fetching... and nothing more. Does anybody know anything about this?
  10. hi everyone, i have a DS2 mini and in its web-based configuration utility there is an option for day/night mode. you can set it to Always Day, Always Night, or automatic. when i set it to automatic the DS2 never switches to Day mode. and that means that during the day its effectively a black-and-white camera. if instead i set it to always Day then i get color during the day but pitch black at night. so my qeustion is. first, is it possible to schedule the switch from day to night so as to over-ride the automatic? if not, what can i do to make the DS2 more sensitive to daylight so that it switches to Day mode when i have it on automatic?
  11. what is the latest DS2 firmware and what is the latest DS2 driver?
  12. Hi, I am having the same issue. A call from the DS2 pops up only a blank image on the T3. once the call is accepted the video appears but only then. intercome anywhere app works fine. what is the latest version of the DS2 driver and what is the latest firmware? I have: DS2 firmware: 2.19.5.28.12 C4 driver version 232 C4 OS: 2.10.5
  13. Hi, this sequence of errors is appearing in director.log every 5 minutes. Does anyone recognize it? I have not been looking at the logs recently but I believe this is new after having upgraded to 2.10.5 2019-01-21 10:14:02.224 -0600 home-controller-800-000FFF58EFF5 [4730] ERROR: Flash: Failed to retreive device info from 192.168.1.8 2019-01-21 10:14:04.325 -0600 home-controller-800-000FFF58EFF5 [4730] ERROR: Flash: Failed to retreive device info from 192.168.1.79 2019-01-21 10:14:06.427 -0600 home-controller-800-000FFF58EFF5 [4730] ERROR: Flash: Failed to retreive device info from 192.168.1.35 2019-01-21 10:14:08.729 -0600 home-controller-800-000FFF58EFF5 [4730] ERROR: Flash: Failed to retreive device info from 192.168.1.31 2019-01-21 10:14:10.902 -0600 home-controller-800-000FFF58EFF5 [4730] ERROR: Flash: Failed to retreive device info from 192.168.1.29 2019-01-21 10:14:11.003 -0600 home-controller-800-000FFF58EFF5 [4730] ERROR: handleSendTo(): Error writing to connection: Permission denied 2019-01-21 10:14:13.109 -0600 home-controller-800-000FFF58EFF5 [4730] ERROR: handleSendTo(): Error writing to connection: Permission denied 2019-01-21 10:14:15.222 -0600 home-controller-800-000FFF58EFF5 [4730] ERROR: handleSendTo(): Error writing to connection: Permission denied 2019-01-21 10:14:17.324 -0600 home-controller-800-000FFF58EFF5 [4730] ERROR: handleSendTo(): Error writing to connection: Permission denied 2019-01-21 10:14:19.425 -0600 home-controller-800-000FFF58EFF5 [4730] ERROR: handleSendTo(): Error writing to connection: Permission denied 2019-01-21 10:14:21.527 -0600 home-controller-800-000FFF58EFF5 [4730] ERROR: handleSendTo(): Error writing to connection: Permission denied
