  1. And, if you happen to be there when the pros are doing their work, it is amazing to see the "storm" that is going on when they are working but when they are done and gone it is also just as amazing that there is no mess, everything is completed, and it all works as it should. That is the best part about it!
  2. I hear what you're saying. And, in some ways I do agree. However, I'm not sure...a team of 6 guys wired up my entire house and mounted everything (except build and program the cabinet and install all the light switches) in only three days. All the wires were pulled, speakers were installed, door stations were installed (3) and wall panels were installed. I guess it all comes down to what you want to spend your time doing.
  3. Working with a good installer is the only way to go if you have the budget. Wiring - A good installer has the right tools and the experience to get wires into places that will amaze you with minimal to no damage. I did an existing home with 3 levels and about 7000ft with 21 audio zones, multiple wired touchscreens, IP cameras, over 200 network devices, wireless access points (4), etc. that needed either wired in or considered as to where they should be placed (light switches and C4 controllers). My installer only ended up having to cut 1 hole in a ceiling of the entire house and they were
  4. AVPro Edge products are rock solid. Be sure and purchase the latest versions of their products especially if you're operating in a mixed environment.
  5. I use remotes to control my lights constantly. The number keypad is the best way to dim them. You can also select scenes as well from the remotes.
  6. The HVAC units are Daikin units. The contractor I am using prefers these because they can use commercial grade zone controls that are not specific to the HVAC units (Like Carrier and Rheem). It gives them more flexibility on zoning and, according to them, the only units they know of right now that can do this (at least from my understanding).
  7. So what I have found is that some furnaces do control the continually variable speed from the furnace board itself. What I am leaning towards is a zoning system that is driven with ecobee thermostats in each zone.
  8. I’ve found the exact same thing. What would be smart is for Control4 to be able to integrate with the manufacturer thermostats for simple temp and schedule. I want to keep the variable speed especially due to the zoning.
  9. I'm replacing the two furnaces/hvac units in my house. Between the two furnaces there are 9 zones. I'm primarily looking at Rheem's newer systems that are modulating variable speed and their systems have a deep integration with their zoning control which is EcoNet. The main drawback I am seeing is that from what I can find there is no EcoNet integration with Control4. That's not a deal breaker for me because the systems I'm replacing don't integrate currently with my Control4 setup. With that said here are my questions for everyone: 1. Has anyone hear of any potential integration wit
  10. It appears to be a bug with the app itself. I can confirm the same bug in the iOS app.
  11. If you’re talking about doorstation snapshots it’s already possible.
  12. Sorry...I figured you were a dealer or an installer. It makes sense that you wouldn't pay attention to these things. 18 months ago it was known to developers that the new driver was the one to begin using for Apple TVs including Gen3 apple tvs. I'm not a C4 dealer but I knew about the new driver and knew enough to ask my dealer about it because I had access to "resources." My dealer was also aware of the new driver at the time but had justifiable reasons (IMHO) to not use it at the time.
  13. Yes. Control4 has said this all along. You aren't uncovering anyone new. Awesome! Here I thought it was being said that the Gen4 driver wasn't released 18 months ago. Glad we're on the same page!
  14. Interesting...for posterity sake I figured I would cut the BS and lookup information on the driver at hand from C4 directly. According to C4 the Gen4 AppleTV Driver has a creation date of 4/20/2018...18 months ago. Bottom line...if you're having issues with your AppleTV running tvOS 13.x in your C4 setup you should probably change your driver if you're using the Gen1-3 driver like I did a few months ago.
  15. The gen4 driver was available at the time. Not sure if it was a full release or beta at the time. I knew about the driver...enough to ask my installer about it. I’m not a dealer but a software developer that has a high interest in automation, including home automation. I would hope that when you reference publicly announcing “dealer incompetence” you aren’t referencing me or anything I’ve said about my dealer. They’re pretty good and I’ve never said the word “incompetence” or anything close to it. What I don’t like seeing in this thread is how upset people are getting one d
