  1. So, it has worked previously - sending test messages tho. I received a text message from control4 saying my sump alarm has activated. I can't seem to remember where I add my cell phone number to it tho anymore. thx for the help EDIT: Seem to have got it working, for my sump alarm. Another notification I'm trying to get working is: If system is in alarm state away, and then alarm is triggered (say door is opened and code not input(break and enter)) then send notification message. Os2 so programming is a bit tricky. Can anyone suggest some options here?
  2. I'm trying to configure a text message push notification when the Sump Pit alarm is activated /or the smoke detector is activated. I have set up a Push Notification in Agents - Category security, Severity alarms, Subject, etc. Under programming for example, I have a Sump Water Level object with events like When sump water level senses water - Send push notification "sump water alarm" I have it set under my customer portal to receive all alerts to my iphone. However nothing is getting pushed. Not sure what I'm missing here? Any clue?
  3. new clickable installable speakers... yippee 🙄
  4. Can you paste some screen caps of it in use? And does it come with a trial period? thx Mitch
  5. my wife yelled at me because every time she left and came back the lights came on... or she would toggle the switch off, it would sense motion and come back on LOL
  6. Hey everyone! Need your collective programming minds for this one! I have a c4 dimmer switch in my kitchen. also have a motion sensor in the kitchen. The kitchen is open to the living room, so sometimes motion in the living room can be detected in the kitchen. I'm trying to think of a clever way to have motion sensor activating my kitchen lights and either turning off after certain period of time, no motion, or staying on until I press the dimmer switch to override current state.... Or even something completely out of the norm. Looking for input on some possible solutions here to automate the lighting experience. I'd even purchase the lighting driver if needed. thx folks!! Steve
  7. Let me at it! I need this. Just got Composer HE installed and it's quite cumbersome to use so far. Need some basic guidance instead of reading through the C4 manuals...
  8. what version of composer is this? I don't have those programming functions on my version
  9. Thanks @msgreenf Is that just a programming control and selecting a STOP in c4 language?
  10. This programming change from last night didnt act as it should this morning. What happened when I opened the mudroom door after 6am - the kitchen lights turned on... No reason why they should... the program says only between 10pm and 6am. I think it's the if less than 50% if statement that is causing them to ignore the Time check... is there a better way to do an else statement? IF time between 10pm and 6am THEN ramp to 100 ELSE IF less than or equal to 50% during 10pm and 6am THEN ramp to 100. Sorry, I suck at programming...
  11. Oh god, you're right. Must dragged it incorrectly.
  12. Please have a look at my script. I'd rather have it say Ramp to level 100 on the living room Kitchen over 1000 milliseconds (or whatever appropriate time I need). the problem is the ramp rate doesnt seem to work, it goes straight to full power light. Any idea? I can press and hold the physical dimmer switch and it gradually ramps up or down as desired, so I know the bulbs at least are capable of dimming. Not sure what else I'm missing here.
  13. I haven't noticed a cold start value set. In my initial dealer install I can press and hold the dimmer switch on or off and it will ramp down nice and slow to either 0% or 100% or anything in between. I can't be certain the value is 80% (haven't looked in composer) but yes they are pretty bright immediately after the action happens. I'll grab some screen shots later this evening and add them to this topic.
  14. Hey everybody, I'm trying to play with some lighting scenes in the house with Composer HE and the ramp rate I am trying to configure is not working as desired. For example I have it when my front door opens -> my living room lights ramp up to 100 over a period of time. What ends up happening is the door opens, the lights immediately go to like 80% and then they seem to ramp up to 100 but slowly. Not the desired 0% ramping to 100% over 5 seconds type of thing. any idea? thx everybody. I can forward some screen caps of my settings when I get home tonight if needed.
  15. so essentially, the sensor is checking every 5 minutes regardless if someone is home or not, and every time someone creates motion the lights are going on?
