  1. When people tie C4 wall stations or apps into realtime camera feeds, is C4 integrating with cameras directly or the NVR? If it’s the NVR, does that mean that blue Iris needs a C4 integration? Also how did you build your blue Iris host? Did you just use a PC? Or do you have some kind of rack mountable server with a disk array? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. cool. I can't much googling for Helios. The mobile app you use: is it just showing 2n video or is it hooking into NVR and showing doorstation plus other IP cameras? If not, do you have another app you use to view other IP cameras (via NVR I'd imagine) remotely? Thanks
  3. Yes. I read the document. It seems to make the point that this is a workaround. So I'll flip it back to you: Did you even read my question? I asked, "And how much does (enhanced licence) enhance functionality vs. the workarounds?: Obviously, the enhanced license does SOMETHING else why offer it for a fee? So, what's it doing and how much does it cost? Seems like these are reasonable questions
  4. Would love to feed 2N directly into NVR. there are hacks it seems OR one can use "enhanced license". https://2nwiki.2n.cz/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=76089694. Does anyone know what this "enhanced license" is all about? Who is getting paid? (2N? C4? ONVIF consortium)? How much is it roughly? Is it a recurring fee? And how much does it enhance functionality vs. the workarounds? Thanks!
  5. What’s the app? It ties into your NVR? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. If you have a touch screen or iPad in guided access/kiosk mode, you might want full control of cameras (quickly rewind backwards to see what happened a minute ago or pan a camera). One could say about almost all services with C4 integrations: why not just use native app? Ideally, C4 handles it so you don’t need lots of apps. That said, I understand the power of the native app and why a lot of people like it. Perhaps in my ideal world I have the option to do either. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Interesting. Do you have a link to it? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Is there anyway to access the video via an IP stream? Like H.265/ H.264 and web or mobile app? Using your approach, you need a lot of heavy and $$ matrix switching or expensive SDVoE equipment, baluns etc. And it wouldn’t work over mobile. Savant does something like this (I think) with its Apple TV app and their integration with ICRealtime. Users can view and interact with video all over IP (not just NVR control) as opposed to your approach. Your comment is very helpful and I suspect you’re solution is the only one. Just thought I’d ask Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Can the Luma be controlled (e.g. PTZ or live rewind/pause etc) from C4 interface ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. unifi protect doesn’t have ONVIF support so my understanding was integration with C4 with full functionality is limited. Interested in what others have to say Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Can you explain in more detail how that would work? Do you have to initiate via Amazon device like an echo? Or could you initiate through a control4 device without actually seeing any Amazon device. Perhaps using Alexa backend only? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. How does the 12v work ? What hardware is involved ? RS-232 trigger device ? How would state be better known with 12v than IR? ThAnn’s for explaining (I realize this is a naive question but I’m new to some of this) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. any idea why there is still no support for iPad Pros designed in last 2-3 years with FaceID? (see https://www.iportproducts.com/ipadcompatibility I prefer the look of the Pros with (slim bezel and no button). Is iPort no longer actively developing product? Also, how fast does C4 iOS app become usable (any lag?) when used on iPad in conjunction with Kiosk Mode (i.e. guided access)? Basically, weighing tradeoffs with T3 screens. The one limitation I know of is no intercom anywhere on Ipad which sucks (hopefully C4 fixes?)
  14. Isn’t there a Chowmain driver for Nexus21? Is that what you’re referring to ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
