  1. I have this issue too. What sensor would indicate "door open"? AFAICT, the lock itself has no idea whether door is open or closed.
  2. following up on my own issue - the 2N site says that an "Advanced Video" license is needed to set up an external camera. The DS2 web configuration page the doorstation serves up has a spot for entering a license key, but it's unclear how to get one. The 2N support person says "contact your distributor" but has no answers when i point out it's Control4. Anyone managed to talk to a 2N distributor before? -will
  3. As anyone who has one will tell you, the DS2 camera is pretty crap, especially in low light and mixed light/shade. I've got another (higher quality) external camera set up as the "alternate camera" for the doorstation intercom, and that works on the T3s in the house when the doorbell rings, but the Intercom App doesn't seem to respect the setting and will only show the atrocious DS2 camera. Would very much like to be able to use an alternate camera in the app - the built in camera looks nothing like the image they show in the app marketing materials The setup page for the DS2 you can access by browsing to the IP address of the DS2 in your system also has a way to specify an "external camera", but it's greyed out; i wonder if it's only for the 2N devices. Does anyone have any idea on how to get the app to display an alternate camera? thanks, Will
  4. You'll want to have a remote around because there is some one-time programming you do with it (setting upper and lower limits for the blind, for instance). Mine are just sitting in a drawer somewhere in case they're needed again.
  5. Your choice. the multi-shade remote is not needed, but after setup with Vera/C4 you can continue to use the little remotes if you set them up with Vera too (they are just zwave devices). I got the singles, they are useful to have around. I could think of some use cases where you might want the multishade remote.
  6. I got the Vera Plus, it's been very stable. https://www.amazon.com/Vera-Control-VeraPlus-US-Smart-Controller/dp/B01BX9P89Y/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1537879857&sr=8-3&keywords=vera+plus One hub controls all the blinds. What your C4 dealer will do is set up one instance of the Vera blinds driver in control4 for each blind. Each instance of the driver appears in C4 as a different blind you can control. When you move the slider for a blind in C4, it sends a command to the one Vera controller, which actually controls the blind, and reports back blind status to C4.
  7. Bummer. Home builds are frustrating enough, sorry you're dealing with all that.
  8. In that scenario, there is little/no purpose. One advantage of C4 is centralized control and management. The downsides are that the hardware has to be picked carefully to ensure compatibility, and that means picking from a smaller range of hardware (e.g., not Doorbird, not Schlage but Baldwin, Yale, or Kwikset and only specific models) and that the hardware can be more expensive. It's up to your builder and his C4 guy to make the right decisions. Sounds like they didn't. TL:DR - your builder screwed up/you.
  9. Happened to me. Haven't changed anything in the system, but the app will no longer receive calls from DS2 door station or any of the touch screens. Oddly, I can use the app to call in, and connect, but I'm no longer being notified when the DS2 is rung, and the touch screens cannot call the app. Anyone else experience this? Will
  10. The loudness thing cracks me up. In my house, they are up or down maybe three times a day, tops. OH GOD THE NOISE! I guess we're all different.
  11. For the person who noted the expense: Look for the discussion of Bali blinds in different threads. I averaged below 300 per blind, they have integrated Zwave radio. Get a cheap vera hub, get the free C4drivers installed and you're in business.
  12. Agreed! If someone could share pics from their DS2 in high brightness and low light, I'd like to see if mine is defective. Thanks.
  13. I have been disappointed only by the image quality. Se these day and night views. Is anyone else having results as bad as this? My Luma cameras are much much better.
