  1. Since upgrading I've lost the ability to use "Monitor Mode" on my T3s. Now if I enable Monitor Mode on 1 T3, the DS2 when pressed doesn't screen-pop to any T3. Anyone else?
  2. There definitely seem to be some workarounds, but after owning for a month or more now, I find I don't use it at all - literally just sits on a shelf. In my opinion it's clunky operationally and only half-baked in concept. I've said before I think the price is spot-on...for a remote that works, but after 5 weeks of use I wouldn't spend $1 on it. A shame that C4 couldn't have taken the year since they acquired Neeo to actually customize and polish the product before pumping it out to market. sure it can be hacked and DIY'ed with icons that sort of maybe get the job done, but I'm just looking for something that works and makes life easier - this remote is not that. at least not yet. Great potential, but a flop in its current form. One gets reminded of it's inferiority with a quick look at the remotes from the competition that have been in the market now for several years (yes, I know they cost more, but I'd rather spend $900 on something I'll use vs $600 on a paper weight). Just my .02 after 5 weeks of Neeo use.
  3. Would replacing the cut-off switch with a Control4 low voltage wireless 0-10v work as well? Then i'm just swapping out the switches. The 0-10v might need it's own power supply? In which case I'd still have to wire it through my grill station to line power, so I suppose it's the same as plugging in a z210 then to line power, and connecting relays to bistro wires.
  4. Does this mean I need pull the lv bistro set off the existing low voltage line running underground? The bistro string is tied into a circuit of 25 other lv landscape lights. The bistro set however has a cut-off switch in the line so I can separately turn off the bistros when I'm not outside since i don't want them on with the rest of the lights on their sundown- sunrise schedule. I'm hoping there's a way to tie into the cut-off switch with a z2io or replace the cut off toggle switch with a c4 lv switch. Any idea if either scenario will work?
  5. The bistro set is LED, but it's not on it's own transformer. How would I connect a Z2io to the bistro set "kill switch" so they operate independently of the rest of the low voltage circuit? The switch is connected to a grill enclosure that also has line voltage outlets, so I can house a z2io inside there, the question is how to connect the z2io to the bistro set...

    I've tried that but can't seem to tie the buttons to a macro or an advanced lighting scene...I'm not sure what I'm missing. Figured it out. Thanks!

    Yes, when I meant Pro or non-HE. in HE I've been able to make the custom buttons but haven't been able to associate the buttons to programming - where is that done?
  8. I recently added a set of bistro hanging lights to my outdoor low voltage lighting. The lights are tied to two separate transformers and connected to their own timers for front or backyard. The bistro set is connected essentially to a cut off switch/kill switch so that when the timer turns the circuit on the bistros can be on/off as needed. I'd like to connect the bistro set to to C4 - is this a z2io or low voltage switch or something else that would allow me to do this? the bistros are wired to a single gang electrical box that houses the kill switch and then splices into the low voltage line running through the yard. The electrical box is affixed to my grill station where i do have line voltage power outlets available. Please suggest away!
  9. There has been some mention of Bond Bridge not working with gas fireplaces only electric - is that correct?

    Is it also available for programming in HE or just standard?
  11. it's the most sophisticated furnace and AC on the consumer market - all of the premium features are driven by their tstat head unit. Unfortunately with a C4 tstat it will operate no better or differently than HVAC that costs 1/2 the price. The only solution is using the Carrier tstat and convincing Liron Machlouf of The Drivers Lab / Homeation to update his driver OR find someone willing to write a new one. Carrier offers an open API for the infinity system. It shouldn't be rocket science but there may just not be enough demand for anyone to take this seriously.
  12. Worth noting that $600 is MSRP, any end-user with an ongoing dealer relationship will get a discount. I have it, and it seems properly priced between a 260 and a higher end Crestron (and the same as Savant). Control4 is upmarket, no two-ways about it. Having spent $150,000 on my automation systems this remote seems totally right-priced.
  13. Right, but then you lose all the functionality and only reason for paying the infinity premium by dumbing down to the C4 tstat. the C4 Aprilaire stats while solid, can't command multi and variable stage systems like the infinity or regulate the dehumidifcation process like the carrier stat. I swapped out 2 of my 4 systems for infinity and since Homation driver that i bought doesn't work I just use the two separate apps for temp control.
  14. I did find the C4 button equivalent by pressing the "on screen" icon, but for consistency sake why not make it look like the original red c4 button that people are used to? Also none of the screen icons that populate when you push "on screen" actually do anything...not sure what the programming intent was, but guide/pageup/pagedown/and c4 favorites menu are non-functional on my remote - as are the numeric icons when you scroll to the second screen.
  15. Remote looks and feels great, Metal housing feels solid but I'm actually a little nervous to let my kids near it for fear of cracking a screen. I might let them continue to bang up the 260, they crack those every 6 months. When i unboxed three of the buttons weren't fully snapped in place into the remote, but a little pressure applied and they reattached fully to the remote. It seems like there hasn't been much development to take advantage of the screen yet. I sort of expected more unique soft key controls and 1-button shortcuts for Roku channels, appleTV shortcuts, cable channel directory. The "on screen"soft key more or less replaces the c4 key, but that's not clear if that's the purpose. A dedicated c4 would have been nice with how much we've trained everyone to use it around my house. with the "on screen" menu the screen soft keys are redundant and don't actually do anything. Feels a little rushed to market, but hopefully some quick software updates will allow for real utilization of the screen. As it's been mentioned elsewhere, visual volume display would be huge here. The real missed opportunity with this hardware is not putting in a camera, mic, speaker so they can act as intercoms on the system. That would open up tons of new uses for these around the house in rooms where i don't want to run another wall -mount touchpanel but would benefit from audio and lighting controls.
