  1. You would need to have RCA audio from the EA to each speaker as an Aux input. I've also found that the Spotify connect client built in disappears and needs a power cycle to recover. The native app is pretty bad and crashes a lot. Audio wise they are OK, but I think these are really only retro fit speakers. When compared to proper multi-room they just don't hold up.
  2. I have 16 Lutron Palladiom keypads for sale. Recently changed over all keypads to Control4 and customer wants me to sell his Lutron ones. These are mega expensive new so looking for £300 per keypad. Phoenix connectors included and all are in perfect condition. PM me if interested. These are also listed on ebay.
  3. Brilliant, thanks for you help. much appreciated!
  4. Yes it is a bit odd as the customer has already been told they are not compatible with the Conexis L1 by Yale. I just wanted to confirm this. Would you do me a huge favour and let me know the firmware version and age of your lock? The customers version is 1.0.0 (from Bluetooth app) I also wonder about ZigBee range as the doors are 6 to 10m from the EA Controller. Unfortunately this is a remote install so I'm relying on customer feedback, I've never visited the job. Thanks in advance for the information.
  5. Did you ever get any joy with this? Have had an enquiry about modules for this lock, but can't find compatibility information. Cheers
  6. Is this Control4 lighting or something else? It can be that the director is not getting the current state of each lighting circuit back from the lighting driver. If all the lights do not report the 0% then the off scene state will never be Active. Some drivers do not report the current light value until a specified polling time and some are just a bit unreliable. In these situations it is sometimes better to resort to programmed feedback rather than rely on the Advanced Lighting Agent.
  7. I read through this with interest ... I did a job recently for a friend of a friend and went down the route of pretty much giving him the equipment at trade on the assumption that he would install most of the kit and I would program it up. Nothing wrong with that, and I was happy to just do remote stuff. He gave me back a EA-1 he said he wouldn't need now ... tested to be knackered! dead as a dodo. Of course it 'was like that when I got it' .. hmmm Decided not to put speakers in a couple of rooms so returned a Traid amp ... a two year old one (which I found on sold listings on eBay)
  8. Have you tried going through the watch sequence without the shield attached by HDMI? Attach another device to the HDMI input you are using for Shield, if the same is occurring then it isn't the shield. You could then connect the shield directly to the projector and repeat until you find the source of the 'sleep signal'
  9. Unfortunately, without trying it myself I couldn't say if the control would be good or not. There is too much variation in the implementation of these products, if it has IFTTT then it is much more likely to work with C4, but this requires additional drivers which are licensed. But, if Control4 can tell the blinds to open / close then yes it will be able to do all the scheduling and sunset / sunrise control. You wouldn't need to touch the Tuya app.
  10. I did look at Heos a few years ago, but the stand alone app stank and the C4 integration was poor. Has it improved any? I will ask the question for suggestions in a separate post so as not to hijack Alan's post.
  11. I did mention to the manufacturers that, with a little push, they would have a Sonos killer on their hands. I'm not sure why there isn't any custom install competition to Sonos, all I want is a good value source/amp for £500 that talks nicely to C4 and compatible with major streamers ... but also a stand alone product. Many just too much to ask.
  12. Ah OK, I see the one you mean. The control part of it is Alexa and Google home compatible so Control4 will be able to control it no problem at all. I'm guessing that the Tuya part of it is just a relay based on ESP chip. I'd prefer not to use cloud services to control local things, but it may be possible to flash new firmware and have local MQTT control.
  13. Hi Alan, I've been playing around with a set of speakers for a day or two and they are pretty good. App needs loads of work, but for the price I like them. Are there plans to develop the driver to be able to start playlists, radio stations etc from programming? That would be amazing in a product of this price. Cheers Steve
  14. Hi, Almost all available motorised curtains are C4 compatible in some way. Something like Somfy or Silent Gliss are good options. I would recommend DC motors over AC as the AC motors are much louder than DC. It does need the RF gateway for each of those systems, but this does give you stand alone 'real button' remote controls too. I don't see the point of installing something that needs an app to control when a hard button does a better job (and quicker). After all, you are trying to automate things, not make it take more time. I take it that your are DIYing your C4 system, if s
  15. I think the cloud is only for driver updates and installation. I have had a MQTT broker running on a Pi for over a year now with Berto drivers with no issues at all even when the internet connection is down.
