  1. We use the Cinegration driver to control our Somfy shades. We also have in-wall Somfy remotes installed. Thus, the open/closed status tracked by the Cinegration driver frequently gets out of sync. This is not a problem for us, since we don't rely on the driver's status in any way. However, it becomes a practical problem when issuing commands. For example, every bedroom has a C4 keypad button called "bedtime." Among other things, the "bedtime" button lowers all the blackout shades in the room. However, if the driver thinks the shades are already closed, it just won't issue the "close"
  2. Other than changing our passwords, are there any other precautionary steps that would be helpful to take?
  3. Me too. Also, I engrave the C4 light switches with the exact names that I use with Alexa. That helps everyone in the family remember the voice commands.
  4. I was wondering the same thing. Seems like the fingerprint scanners show up on their global website, but not their US website. Just speculating, but maybe it is not available in the US? Would be great to hear I am wrong!
  5. I currently have a LiftMaster garage door opener integrated into C4 with a CardAccess wireless controller. It has been very reliable and works great with C4. However, we will soon have to replace our motor, because we are remodeling and insulating our garage, requiring a heavier duty motor. I'd like to integrate the new motor using native C4 equipment and without going through the cloud -- kind of like my existing CardAccess setup. Am I correct that the Smart Garage Door Bundle is the only way to achieve that goal, or are there other approaches? What garage door brands work best wit
  6. Sure. In that case, only restart the timer if the door opens between 7p and 8am, and you should be set.
  7. When anyone fails to close the garage door, I send an announcement over the speakers, "The garage door has been left open for 15 minutes." Just restart a 15-minute timer every time the garage door opens, and stop the timer if the garage door closes. If the timer expires, trigger the announcement. In your case, you can also condition the announcement on the time of day. (You might also want to schedule a "garage door check" event to occur at 7pm, to handle the case where someone leaves the door open during the day and fails to close it. The scheduled event would fire off an announcement if
  8. I think 2 days without network access would cause a bloody revolution in our household. 😀 And, wow, I hadn't ever seen that Unifi LTE Failover device. It looks cool! Unfortunately, the only other option we have for a failover service in our area is DSL, which hardly seems worth the trouble. I might give that Unifi device a try instead. Thanks for the tip!
  9. While my experience with Unifi has been fine, this thread prompted me to order backup units of my Unifi USG, Cloud Key, Unifi POE switch, and even my Netgear cable modem! 😮 I will say it feels pretty good to have those brand new, unopened boxes sitting in my office closet.....
  10. Same here. The touch screen wake-up alarm triggers a macro that plays a Sonos favorite -- we use a Pandora station -- and gradually increases the volume every 30 seconds. After 5 minutes have passed, the black-out shades go up and the lights come on. It works great, and it saves me from having to harass the kids every morning!
  11. Yes. Use the "Snapshot" driver. It should let you do exactly what you need.
  12. Yes, with some caveats. You will be able to select and play music using Roon from the C4 app, but the Roon C4 interface is a lot more basic than the Roon app on Mac, iOS, and elsewhere. And, the Roon C4 driver is still a bit buggy, so you might experience some navigator crashes from time to time.
