  1. Caseta is the best DIY system available. Best part is that you wont be tied to a control4 ecosystem if you ever decide to move away. Dimmers and switches can be usually found for $40-45 on ebay.
  2. My cameras are no longer working after today’s update. I have 6 cameras connected to a hik NVR and 2 cameras connected straight to the network switch. None of them are loading (wifi or LTE). They work fine via OSD though...
  3. I was looking for a driver for a BG-UHD-88M18G and couldn't find anything. Then I noticed that Monoprice and Zuum sell similar hardware and seem to use similar codes. Luckily Zuum provides an IP/Serial/IR driver for their Matrix which could help at least with the HDMI switching part. Not sure if it will work, but it doesn't hurt to try: https://www.zuummedia.com/v/vspfiles/Software/zuum_hdmi_8x8.c4z.zip The codes are very similar to: BG-UHD-88M18G Monoprice 39670 Monoprice 39669
  4. I found a few companies selling the following matrix but could not find any reviews yet. Good features and also includes audio de-embedding/matrix. The only downside is there are no Control4 drivers made, but shouldnt be too hard to build a serial drive for it: https://amp.hdtvsupply.com/8x8-hdmi-matrix.html https://bzbgear.com/product/bg-uhd-88m18g-bzbgear-8x8-hdmi-2-0-matrix-with-audio-matrix-downscaling-aoc-supported/
  5. Yep! Or... If can wait a little bit longer for a new router and doesn't need the extra features from the UDM Pro, I would wait for this: https://community.ui.com/questions/Introducing-the-UniFi-Next-Gen-Gateway-Product-Line-Starting-with-UXG-Pro-/732dd4dd-10bf-463c-8622-382d77702872 https://store.ui.com/collections/early-access/products/unifi-next-generation-gateway-professional-beta
  6. Yep. I was referring to the Amcrest piece suggested.
  7. I would strongly advise against a 2.4ghz doorbell from any brand. They are generally a little slow to connect. Its not going to be a good user experience. If you really like the Ubiquiti gear, contact this guy and check if they plan to support the doorbell: UniFi NVR/Video: https://drivercentral.io/platforms/control4-drivers/utility/unifi-video/ UniFi Protect: https://drivercentral.io/platforms/control4-drivers/utility/unifi-protect-camera/
  8. For the Roku TV driver, If you know how to program, you can start here: https://developer.roku.com/docs/developer-program/debugging/external-control-api.md These commands work beautifully with my TCL S4 model. Just sent them via terminal: curl -d '' http://TV_IP:8060/keypress/powerOn curl -d '' http://TV_IP:8060/keypress/powerOff curl -d '' http://TV_IP:8060/keypress/Home and etc..

  9. The following bulbs work great with C4 APD and Caseta dimmers: A19: Cree and Feit (A19OM800LED) PAR20/38: Hyperikon MLV: Soraa are good but expensive. I personally prefer GEs Halogen.
  10. https://www.amazon.com/Mutifunctional-Digital-Converter-Tiancai-Adapters/dp/B081PJXMM5/ref=sr_1_78?dchild=1&keywords=optical%2Bto%2Banalog%2Bdigital&qid=1591715078&sr=8-78&th=1
  11. Is that for data or video (hdmi-over-cat)? Either way use CAT6. When I bought my house 4 years ago I ran 2x Cat5 for IR and Data and 2x Cat6 for video behind every TV location. A bit overkill but I rather have extras than none. If I ever move to a new house in the near future, I think I would do: 2x Cat6 for Data and IR and 2x Cat6A or Cat7 for video.
  12. I use these. No issues at all. Sewell SW-29863-12 Deadbolt Banana Plugs 12-Pairs by, Gold Plated Speaker Plugs, Quick Connect https://www.amazon.com/dp/B006U3O566/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_IGqPEb0DRE6GA
  13. I toggled the “Apple tv control” menu and rebooted my main controller. That seems to have fixed the issue.
  14. I am also having issues with the apple tv 4k ip driver for the first time. The funny thing is that all of my iOS devices, regardless of iOS the version, stopped controlling both of my apple TVs via Control4 app, while everything still works via apple’s Remote app, SR and Neeo.
  15. Not sure what happened but its working now. Lol Thanks again for the driver!
