  1. In the pic OP posted, you can see imperfections of the box cutout around the wall plate. I have a question for you though. I was under the impression that SA used UK standard wall boxes and wiring, which would be square style like OP has. Looking at your picture that clearly isn’t the case in your house. Is your house an exception, or is what you have the standard in your area? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. The thing about turning into a services company, is that they need you to see their services, which means landing on the home page. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I can’t take on any new projects until February of next year. That’s as of today. By the end of this month i will probably be booked up until April. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. My own opinion is that apple wants you to land on their home page and not go directly into an app. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Legrand is also part of this group. They'll be releasing some Zigbee devices in the US soon..... Supposedly US product line manager is sending me samples. Haven't talked to them in a couple of months but hopefully I'll see them show up soon.
  6. No, you want to go upstream with the forward phase dimmer. I don’t know of any 12v dimmer that you’ll be able to integrate into C4. 12v AC dimmers do exist, but it will be manual control. Just so we’re clear, a dimmer switch does not change the voltage. If you try to put a 120v dimmer on those LED’s and not use a transformer, you will still have 120v, and you will damage the lamps.

  7. Yes, I knew they would be AC. You cannot avoid the transformer. Forward phase dimming because you will have a magnetic transformer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. You can’t use the C4 plug in dimmer. You need forward-phase dimming (MLV); the plug in dimmer is reverse phase. You can use either the forward-phase or adaptive-phase dimmers from C4. Hardwire the transformer to a circuit extending from the wall dimmer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Because they’re not that level of quality . Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I realize this is a C4 forum and what I’m saying can easily be misinterpreted as “trash talking”. I hope to clarify here that isn’t the case. I understand the problems the OP is facing. Maybe a better explanation from me is that C4 keypads are Lexus or Infiniti in a world that is also occupied by Porsche, Ferrari, and Koenigsegg. Nothing wrong with any of them, just different products for different lifestyles. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. No, the Nuvo keypads are specifically for Nuvo audio systems; it’s a brand under the same parent company as vantage, so they use identical materials and colors. Nuvo integrates with C4 also. If you used vantage keypads you would want to use their dimming and relay modules (or wall dimmers) for lighting but can link button functions through a C4 driver. All of their lighting integrates into C4. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. The other option is using the Nuvo keypads for audio controls Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. You dedicate a key for vol up and vol down. The C4 volume keys are nice but that is a spot they feel especially flimsy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. The fit and finish of that keypad is superior to C4, especially so in the easytouch glass and adorne lines. Vantage also has LCD touch keypads. Also the vantage wall plates are far and above what C4 offers. I’m not a vantage dealer, so I’m not here to sell it, I’m just telling you after using both that the vantage keypads are nicer, but they also cost twice as much. This isn’t to say C4 keypads are “bad”, more so that the two are in a different category of quality. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
