  1. Thanks Gary, I've managed to get the PIRs to trigger the lights which is really useful. Are there any remote dealers you can recommend at all?
  2. Hi all, My dealer no longer supports C4 which is very disappointing... Are there any other dealers in the North East of England at all? I'm in Sunderland. Or just a remote installer for now for an OS3 update? Thanks, Lee
  3. Hi all, I've had a Texecom Premier Elite 48 panel alarm system installed for a couple of years now and its fully integrated into my C4 system but i'm not using the system at all because no programming has been set up in composer. My C4 dealer/installer ceased all C4 support and i'm pretty stuck to be honest as there inst any other C4 dealers in my area which is a separate issue.... Anyway I have Composer HE and was wondering if there are any guides or advice out there so i can get my alarm system up and running with C4. I have integrated Yale Locks that push out notifications and also trigger audio announcements but it would be great if i could disarm the system on entry, and also set something up that arms the system as part of my 'Goodnight' command. Thanks!
  4. I have the Premier Elite and Com IP system but on the firmware before they released their own app. Our alarm company installed the alarm and our C4 dealer installed the driver and was supposed to get it all up and running and integrated. It connects to C4 but C4 asks for a 4 digit alarm code but my alarm code is a 6 digit code. This was about a year ago and i'm still not sorted! My dealer stopped all C4 support so i'm now dealerless and my alarm company wont upgrade my Premier Elite firmware because that would involve them coming out on site. Anyone live close to Sunderland and fancy becoming my new dealer?? I could really use the support. Cheers
  5. That sounds like it could work but i dont think the snapshot driver is installed. Can it be installed via HE or would a dealer need to install it?
  6. I've set up a few announcements in Composer HE and programmed them to play when someone enters the front door i.e. when a user enters their code into the yale door lock the announcement will play through selected room speaker zones i.e. ' X has entered the front door'. It works as expected, however, if someone is watching the virgin media tivo, weather that be Neflix via virgin media or a recorded program for some reason the announcement forces the tivo back to live TV. Any advice would be much appreciated.

It works as expected, however, if someone is watching the virgin media tivo for some reason it defaults to the main menu id the user is watching a recorded program or if watching netflix via Tivo the announcement seems to close netflix and go back to the main menu. The screen shot is the announcement set up. Any advice would be much appreciated.
  8. Hi all, i've got it working! Basically the turntable goes through the technics amp then the amp out to the cat 6 converter then through to the Matrix. I'm sure i tried this first ­čśé I'm now happy as larry and cn play vinyl throughout the house! Result! Thanks for your help. Cheers
  9. Thanks! That's really useful. From what i understand after reading the info on that link is that a Phono pre-amp converts the phono signal to 'line-level' which is basically AUX and that some turntables have a built in phono amp. Looking at the back of mine it seems to have what looks like an AUX output but isn't labelled. I'm going to try an AUX to phono --> Phonno to Cat6 --> then at the rack end... Cat6 to phono then straight into the Matrix. I'll let you know! Cheers
  10. Hi all, I've recently had a 24 zone Matrix and 8 zone amp installed. I was planning on linking my Technics stack hifi system as an input source, which still sounds absolutely brilliant on its own by the way! The idea is to be able to play vinyl through my system and select what room to listen to it in. My rack is in the basement and my Technics hifi is in the front reception room which has cat6 ports in the walls. I've patched in via phono over cat6 adaptors direct to the rack then converted back from cat6 to phono and plugged straight into an input in the rack using these Lindy adaptors - https://smile.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01BF6KFOS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I can choose listen to 'Hifi' in the c4 app and in theory this should play via my speakers in the selected room. It works and I can hear music through the system but the problem i'm having is that its very quiet. At max volume i can hear the music but its very quiet. I've also tried bypassing the Technics amp and also the lindy adaptors altogether and literally carried the record player down to the basement and plugged it direct into the matrix and i have the same problem with the volume. If anyone has any experience with playing vinyl via c4 any advice would be much appreciated. It would be amazing if i could get this to work properly! Thanks in advance!
  11. Hi did you manage to solve these issues at all? My dealer installed the Heatmiser Neo driver in 2015 and I scrapped the whole C4 integration side as it kept erasing my profiles. Have there been a new driver since then? Thanks
  12. I disabled the C4 skill in alexa, then cleared the cache in the alexa app and uninstalled it, then un-selected everything in the customer portal and saved (I couldn't figure out a way of actually deleting the devices from the alexa section). Then re installed, enabled the skill, re selected the devices the in portal and discovered new device's in the alexa app. As previously the devices are all listed under the devices section in alexa but don't show up in the routines-devices section. It's starting to do my bonse in to be honest ­čĄö
  13. Thanks for the epic driver signpost but is there a reason why the devices aren't showing in the C4 driver?
