  1. If I’m driving macros (“open all” / close all), having one butting is challenging - if the garage doors get to a mixed state (one up, one down), what behavior would it have? With 2 (open/close) there is no state management as the operations are idempotent - just hit close and I know I’m good. I’m open to a better way. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. After playing with the experience buttons, I think I like the custom buttons better. The quick sub menu ("Open/Close") seems easier on a T3 or iDevice than having a separate button for "Open Garage Doors" and "Close Garage Doors".
  3. Ah, the "Selected" Event!! That does open up some possibilities. I had only played with the other events, as "Selected" looks odd.
  4. I do this via my iDevices regularly. I've got a dozen Sharebridge instances setup ("Whole House", "Master Bedroom", "Greatroom", etc), and that lets me drive music from my devices. I *think* you could also do with on the android side with DLNA, although I've not been down that route. Your dealer can set this up for you.
  5. Thanks Matt. I'm using the Aladdin buttons to control my doors - which gives me nice control over them. I've favorited them, but I've got multiple garage doors buttons (1st world problems, no doubt). I'm trying to just get down to a single button. The "Scenario - Experience Button" seems like exactly the thing.
  6. @alanchow I've got multiple garage doors, and having a macro that opens/closes all them has been easiest.
  7. To answer my own question: The "Scenario - Experience Button" is what I want. Per the docs, you rename the driver file, set the icon there, zip it back up, and install it. While this seems a bit clunky, it'll work and is what I'm doing to writing drivers anyway. I wonder if I could write a driver to do this, and expose the features to user-land? I've not yet poked at the "drivers installing other drivers" side of things, so I don't know if this is possible. The "UI Button" proxy seems nice, and I'll have to play with that. My garage doors are currently using the Aladdin buttons, and I'm looking for a "control all the doors at once" scene. I have found that easier to do in a macro ("All Doors up", "All Doors down"), than trying to cascade events across.
  8. Is it possible to set the icon on a custom button? For example I have a "Garage Doors" custom button that opens/closes all the garage doors. I would like this button to have a garage door icon. Nothing obvious seems to work. Seems a simple driver with an icon would do the trick, and I could trigger my macros from that...
  9. Using the Chowmein TCP driver, you could make a watch app that just triggered scenes pretty easily. URL X = Scene 1, URL Y = Scene 2, iWatch app has buttons to hit those URLs. ... but yet, integrated would be good.
  10. Can you elaborate a bit? What sensors do you use? Is this all motion sensors, or are you using the roomme type solution and tracking based on a watch/phone?
  11. I have a number of hue bulbs behind C4 switches. I have all the switches set to act as keypads, so that pressing on/off does not control load. Instead the “keypad” just triggers an advanced lighting scene (on / off / etc). I program a double-tap to control load, just in case I need to actually turn them on/off. This has worked out quite well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Last night I changed all the passwords on my QNap. I went with long complex auto-generated passwords, that look like: (Password Example): Lkp#WEPU6QzdO?8)PvX6YAy1QxZaa2 Turns out the Control4 Network File Storage driver (or something in the network path) doesn't work with a password like that. After resetting the password to one simpler, shorter, and not having what appears to be forbidden characters, things connect and work again. The error was "Unable to connect to the network share". I put this here in the hope that the next person won't have to spend an hour of network debugging trying to figure that out.
  13. Yea, more walled gardens. I’m Open to suggestions for a great solution. There’s gotta be something that works well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. This thread has details: UniFi Protect and Video/Legacy Camera Drivers https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink/topic?share_fid=76380&share_tid=34841&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ec4forums%2Ecom%2Findex%2Ephp%3F%2Ftopic%2F34841-UniFi-Protect-and-Video-Legacy-Camera-Drivers&share_type=t&link_source=app Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. There is a rich featured Unifi Protect driver someone has written for C4. I wonder if that would do the trick? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
