  1. Has anyone worked with these 3rd party models and have them working as stable equivalents to DS2s? Wanting to upgrade from a SkyBell WiFi doorbell but would need to run a CAT cable, which will be difficult, if not impossible, as long as I don’t want to remove trim and sheetrock.
  2. It wasn’t obvious but I have the same remote as some other write-ups so it was simple. You can use a couple wires to test and find the right point by touching them together and they’ll open / close door once you get the correct two. And yes the opener still works fine. I haven’t plugged into the back of my io extender yet but it still works. Also cleaned it up a bit using a simple weatherproof outlet cover from Lowe’s: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Got it reset and now showing on my network. Appreciate it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Port lights certainly work when connected, but Fing or OVRC won’t pick it up at all. I have not connected anything to the contacts or relays yet but wouldn’t think that would keep it from being found on the network. Perhaps I just need to be patient and get it added to my system along with garage doors when dealer is available. Would be open to a remote dealer if available this evening. If anyone is interested in the work please DM me. Thx. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Was given a barely used io extender (not v2) and want to factory reset prior to having someone add to my system. I’ve read up on documentation but pressing the reset button on back for 5-7 seconds doesn’t seem to do the trick. Am I missing something? Also, just plugging into my araknis switch as is and network doesn’t even see the device. Thanks in advance for any thoughts and direction. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Got it all wired up tonight. Now just need to get the io extender added to my project along with the drivers and two doors. Used the following: Rail mount contact sensors x2 Extra garage door opener Cat5e ran to rack May put the opener and wiring in a box at some point but not too bad. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Well it’s that time of year where the doorbell and front door lock gets more work and C4 notifications than it does the rest of the year combined (yes I know I could turn notifications off). What are your favorite and creative automations for Halloween to make for some fun at the front of the house any maybe scare some kids? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Perfect and thank you. Hopefully my last question...since I’ll be having two rail sensors, one for each door, how would I connect both to the back of the EA3 since, from what I understand, there’s only one contact sensor there? Net, might be needing to get a Z2io to connect two door sensors? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Adding a few things and just noticed my EA3 doesn’t have the pluggable terminal block to connect to relay / contacts. Are these control4 specific or can I pick them up at a store? If specific would anyone happen to have a few they could part with? Thanks in advance. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I’m starting to rethink how I want to integrate since my main EA3 is accessible above garage so I can wire directly to it and don’t think I need any Z2io or Axxess modules. This is a new one for me so I’m looking for some wiring diagram help on how to do this. Setup: Two MyQ security 2.0 garage doors with Rail Contact Sensors on both. Question: Do I have to run separate wires back to rack or can attach these two sensors together and a single run back to the rack? Also, which relay port do they attach to on the EA3? Then at my rack I’ll hack our extra garage door opener and solder wires to connect directly to EA3. Question: Which port do these two wires attach to? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. How much do the Acxess Relays cost? And are the rail-mounted contact sensors better since they’re hard-wired versus Nyce tilt sensors or is it a wash really? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Curious what makes using the Z2io and contact sensors better than the Axcess Relay and contact sensors? Is it mainly because the Z2io is branded C4? Asking because I have two garage doors and thought one Axxess will work for two but I’d have to buy two Z2io and use one for each door. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. How fast are the notifications in C4 app? When MyQ was working it took forever so I’ve always used the chamberlain app anyway. And any reason why the access is installed in that box? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Appreciate it. Net, there isn’t an official integration for this? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. That’s almost helpful. I’m on houselogix myQ driver v1.5 rev20170130 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
