  1. Thanks @rea I didn't even consider IFTTT, I may use that as a temporary solution. And Thanks @alanchow, really looking forward to the driver. I'm sure you won't..., but let me know if want / need anyone to test it. Appreciate the feedback everyone.
  2. @zaphodYes the Govee lights are connected via wi-fi (this I'm certain of). I believe they can also connect via Bluetooth. And yes, Govee has and Android and IOS app, called Govee Home (basically to control all their products). @alanchowIf you have a Govee product, after you set it up in their app, you can submit a request for the API. I believe it's under the profile settings. They literally email you everything you need within an hour or so. Here is a link to their latest API Guide (also attached). I can also DM you the API key they provided me, if that will help you in anyway. Just let
  3. I have the following LED light strip on back of a TV: Govee Immersion. The company also provided me with an API key and API code reference guide upon request. I'm looking for the best / suggested methods to integrate this product into my C4 system. Honestly I would be completely satisfied with "On / OFF" and "Brightness" control. Ideally I would like the lights to follow / mimic the TV's power state, and some brightness control would be nice. The TV is already integrated into my C4 system (LG C1). Should I get a dealer / someone to make a custom driver? Or would I be better off wit
  4. @jsimon77@chopedogg88 I have a very similar issue. We (my dealer and myself) migrated my system to a new EA5 controller. After the migration we then reached out to Epic Systems, so we could reactivate the driver. After the reactivation and upon testing the system, none of the Triggers / Commands we were working. Also, we could not add new Triggers / devices and have them discovered by Alexa (via website or app). Nothing would work on the discovery side. At this time we we were using Epic Systems driver version 210. After a couple of emails with Epic Systems, they suggested updating the dr
  5. Major thanks to @jackstiffer, I can confirm the following for all (*** Specifically for those running C4 OS 3.0, very important ***) - Upgrading to the V2 Driver does work.... and yes you must completely remove the old driver, and upload the new one. - You do lose all programming and triggers as @chopedogg88 has stated, so save / backup all your info elsewhere before removing the old driver and uploading the new one (makes reprogramming easier also). At least for me it made things much easier, as I have over 100 triggers / verbal commands. - As a precaution I would also backup
  6. Can you further explain...., I have driver version 110. I also have multiple Echo Devices, 1st, 2nd, 3rd... Gen and so on. In C4 the driver is set to an original Gen 1 Echo dot. Could we / one not just change the IP in the driver settings to a newer Gen model? Would that work @chopedogg88? If not...do we have to change / update the IP of the Echo device to a non Gen 1 model....then reprogram and rediscover all triggers? Any advice is appreciated. Also @jackstiffer what was your original Echo model, and what model did you upgrade to? Thanks.
  7. @sonic30101 Thank you, much appreciated. The room commands work perfect. Makes perfect sense. @Cyknight Understood, I'll stay away from and won't use "While" statements. Appreciate the tip / suggestion.
  8. @sonic30101, yes your are correct, Max Volume Limits. I have the C4-16ZAMS-V3-B, how do I set the max volumes on the device itself? I may be overlooking something, but I'm not seeing that option when looking at the Properties under System Design.
  9. Looking to add some Volume Safety / Auto Shut off programming to my C4 build. I recently added some wireless keypads with "Up" and "Down" volume controls, for certain areas of the house. After installing and setting these up... I realized how nice they are to have, but I also realized one day my son and his friends will want to listen to things very loudly (when I'm not around). As you may suspect, I would prefer not to blow my speakers or wake up the neighbors at 2:00 a.m. So I was wondering, if anyone has done some sort of "Room Shut Off" / "Auto Shut off" based upon volume levels?
  10. @sonic30101, @dcovach, @chopedogg88, Had some work travel come up with the recent weather in TX. I"ll be out of town for a week for so.... Would someone be able to try the driver that Chopedogg88 shared, and let us know if you have any success with it? I intend to give it shot whenever I get back, and have time... just keeps getting delayed. Sorry about that Chopedogg88.
  11. Same results here. Full Voice Control for Receiver (probably true for many, but maybe not all receivers) = Conditional Logic, via "Volume" then "Set" then "#" commands to Receiver Zone Martix Amp & other Devices with true Discrete Volume Setting = Single Command line, via "Google Home->SET_VALUE_NUMBER" for all volume settings.
  12. @dcovach just want to make sure we are on the same page. The AVR and volume control, work perfectly via the C4 app, for any and all functions for the room. I can launch any source (Roku, Xbox, and so on...) and control the volume for any source via the C4 app, and remote control. The receiver responds appropriately this way. The very specific problem / issue I'm having, is when using the Epic Systems Google Home driver, to "Set" volume levels for the room via voice command....Hence for example: "Set Game Room->CURRENT_VOLUME to the value of Google Home->SET_VALUE_NUMBER"

  14. For those who may be facing this issue, via the Epic Systems Alexa or Google Home Driver, below is a reply form Ari / @chopedogg88: "yeah this is because the AV receiver's driver doesn't allow for discrete volume setting. best bet is to use some conditional logic to check for the main levels that you plan to use most often, and then set the volume accordingly. you can use the single-line programming method when using a c4 amp, works perfectly...but AVR's are a different animal." Hope this info, helps others. Once again, @chopedogg88 with the quick customer support, the guy is a
