  1. Were you able to resolve this by taking stream 2 from the chime?
  2. I am currently testing a chime and noticed there are three different streams all of which can be set with different resolutions. Is there a possibility to have the on screen display pickup a stream set to a lower resolution and then the phone/tablet/touch panels pick up a higher resolution?
  3. Fixed the issue. Communication agent wasn't installed before the chime. All sorted now.
  4. Thanks and that's what I thought. I just can't seem to get it to ring the touchpad. I can start a call to the chime from the touchpad but not the other way around.
  5. Random question, do you need to have 4sight for the chime to ring touchscreens? I presume the answer is a definite yes to call mobile devices.
  6. I have finally got my Flic V2 and connected to the Pi using the IOT device driver. Silly question but how do I now surface the button in Composer?
  7. Thanks for the info. I have ordered a Flic V2 to test and see how it goes.
  8. I am already using a Pi with the Berto drivers. Does anyone know if you still need the Flic hub? Also, do the buttons then show as a device in Composer which you can then run programming on?
  9. Yup I’ve had it working for a while now however I’ve just had to take it out. The reality is Control4 state they don’t support the L1 therefore information surrounding the ID of these locks is non existent. In order to ID the lock you press the button THREE times not the usual four. This should ID straight in. So, the reason I have just removed it. For a while I have been struggling with odd behaviour on my lights. When I would use the C4 app the feedback for the lights wouldn’t work correctly and if turning the lights on they would turn on, off and then on again. The opposite would happen when turning off. After many weeks of trying various things, my dealer stumbled across the lock causing the issue. We have just tried the lock being connected to its own controller and zigbee but unfortunately that hasn’t solved the problem. As it stands I will not be integrating the lock with C4. I am also not aware of any other multipoint locks which work with C4. Hope this helps.
  10. Not sure where you are based but I would think twice about a MOIP system. Having installed a J+P 3G system recently for distributed 4k video I have unfortunately had to take it back out and send it back. I am in the UK and despite J+P claiming they can deal with 4k60 it’s actually not the case. The receivers can only receive a maximum of 4k30. In the UK things like sky boxes do not allow you to reduce the frame rate below 50hz which is the PAL standard. The same goes for other sources too. This results in a terrible image on things like football/soccer which is the majority of what I watch. Standard 1080p output worked fine but the moment I tried to watch something in 4k the ball would ghost across the screen. I expect this is because the source was outputting at 50hz but the J+P was only using 24hz which resulted in 50% the frames disappearing. For me, the J+P concept is far better than a traditional matrix but for now it’s just not suitable for 4k. I will say, if you don’t watch 4k sport, you may never see an issue but for me it just wasn’t working. The solution for me was the HDA MHUB Pro 2.0. So far the system has been great and worked flawlessly. For others saying they don’t see the point in these systems, I am a little confused. Maybe the UK market is different but I have numerous 4k tv’s but satellite providers such as sky only allow one 4k compatible box which means an av distribution system is the only way to get 4k content to all tv’s.
  11. It was very easy in the end. Install the module, load the Yale driver and then three button presses (not 4) on the lock to discover it. That was it done.
  12. I have a working L1 in C4. Took me ages as both Yale and C4 claim they are not supported and do not work. That is not the case and will integrate.
  13. Yes Yale and Control4 told me the lock wasn’t supported and I had given up with getting it ID’d. It was only the fact I happened to speak to someone who had actually done it so I gave it a try. 3 button presses and then ID’d in. My firmware version is 1.1.0 and I think I installed it late 2019. As for zigbee range I’m not sure as I have a keypad next to the door so it’s never been an issue for me. Hope that helps.
  14. I did. It was an easy fix in the end. All you need to do is press the identify button 3 times instead of the normal 4 with C4. The only think I would say, there isn’t much you can do. Because of the way multipoint locks work you can’t lock the door but you can unlock. The only useful element for me is to get the status of the lock so I know of it’s been locked or not. This lock does not track user entry or anything as far as I have seen. Hope that helps.
  15. Thanks, yes I'm working with my dealer to get this resolved. Thought I would try on here to see if there was any suggestions. I have my dealer also helping out with a video matrix but that is another story following a disappointing installation with Just Add Power.
