  1. I couldn’t find any details on the Control4 Chime and whether it was RTSP / ONVIF capable? I like it as currently constituted. But I would love it if I can get it working with Blue Iris and My Video Storm Matrix. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I use the axxess occupancy sensor with the Humidity option which would allow you to add some additional logic to occupancy based on the humidity rising. So essentially, if they leave the bathroom and turn off the bathroom fan, and the humidity is above a predetermined number, you can have the fan come back on. And... once it drops to an acceptable number and occupancy is false, you can have the fan go off. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I have one micro setup. But... I don’t use Amazon so I can’t compare. However, in my opinion, it’s as tight of an “on-net” integration you can have between a voice assistant and C4. To me it’s only real drawback is it’s price, and compared to Google, it’s Natural Language Processing (albeit always improving), seems a little less to be desired. But to be able to trigger any C4 programming, not just lights, is a huge plus. For example... I can Tell Josh to “call / Broadcast / Intercom, etc” one of the kids rooms and it triggers programming that Initiates the living room T3 to intercom the their
  4. I use the hikvision ds-hd1. It’s RSTP and ONVIF compatible. This combined with Video Storms Netplay Tv on nvidia shield, allows me to get PIP and full screen feeds from all of my cameras. It also plays well with the T3’s. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I was working through this one as well. I also have ecobee, and thought that I would use a combination of a count down timer and a variable. The count down timer would be used to avoid shutting the HVAC down just because someone opened a window for two minutes. The variable would be used to determine if more then one window is opened, then shutdown the HVAC. If that cumulative variable drops down to an acceptable number which would represent the amount of Windows, then turn the unit back on. I had planned to also add an alert to send a window open toast pop up to the living room and bedroom TV
  6. Perfect... these are all acceptable options. Ultimately, in addition to a single view pane, I will be adding programming that will alert you if multiple windows are open, and if the Air conditioning is on or being turned on, it will keep the system off and alert as to what window is open so it can be closed before conditioning the outside world. You’ve got to love kids. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I wanted to see if there was a way of creating a dashboard of some sort for my T3s. Essentially what I wanted to do was create a quick view of all of the window / door contact sensors to determine what is currently open. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I love this idea as well. Unfortunately I haven’t done anything great other than just tightening up some logic in existing programming. But... I think this thread will get the creative juices going again. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I’m looking to purchase (3) NCZ-3011 Door / Window Contact Sensors. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I wasn’t sure if I was missing something in programming but I wanted to know if the current chowmain IRUSB driver offered any feedback. Essentially I wanted to be able to determine which mini app was invoked or active for a room. The issue is that some mini apps on the nvidia shield pauses when I execute a Picture in picture via my Video Storm matrix. Netflix, HDHomeRun, Amazon Video, and Hulu all allow the Picture in picture to occur without pausing the video. Whereas, Kodi and Disneyplus both pause when the Picture in picture is invoked. In an ideal world I would like all of the Mini apps no
  11. I have five Nvidia Shields (one 2019 Shield pro) all with IRUSBs, and I’ve had no issues. Lucky I guess. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. No problem. I’m sure it will be my turn soon enough. [emoji4] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I’ve done this for our bedroom T3. I have a scheduler running every night, and at 10pm I set the bedroom T3’s screen saver to “blank”. And then I have a schedule for 8:30am setting it back to date and time. It works well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I was looking to do this and I was thinking of pulling the trigger on the hikvision ds-hd1 doorbell. From what I understand the DS-HD1 supports ONVIF, 2.4 & 5GHz WiFi, 1080p, and has two-way audio. So not only will you be able to send the video to any ONVIF compliant NVR, but depending on your customers project, you’d be able to send triggered events (leveraging Ryan’s Web driver & Blue Iris) to T3s, with object detection / zone crossing. Outside of the DS-HD1I haven’t seen any other wireless doorbell camera with comparable flexibility. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I wasn’t sure if anyone else has experienced this issue but if I happen to be watching either Kodi or Disney Plus, and I send PIP to my Nvidia Shield (NetplayTV), it pauses the app. I don’t see this happening with Netflix, Amazon Video, YouTube, or Live Channels (HDHomeRun). Currently each Shield is using a Video Storm IRUSB (Version 2.1 ) with Chowmains driver. The reason I’d like the “pausing” to stop is because I have programming that sends PIP whenever BlueIris triggers an alert when someone has crossed a detection zone. It works well... just a pain in the butt if you’re watching Disney
