  1. I have the charger model on all of our remotes but previously had Crestron remotes, and quite a few. They burned through batteries every 6 months like clockwork. Eventually ended up buying a bunch of Panasonic Eneloop(sp?) batteries, two chargers and a few plastic battery cases and never looked back. We don’t have a closed cabinet so charging is easy for us with the SR260s now but if you can’t go the charger route, think about the other option above. It’s more expensive than regular batteries initially but definitely pays off in the long run.
  2. Thank you - I did do this for a few of our fans but the one that we use most was getting ‘confused’ between states of the lights so we kept the bond bridge on a few fans and changed to the bond receiver/remote setup mentioned above and replaced the receiver in the one fan. Unfortunately, that fan doesn’t have any mechanical way to reverse direction and this Home Depot/Bond setup doesn’t have a reverse function. . .at least not natively. Wondering if anyone has figured out a work around. Some pattern of key presses somehow sent a command that reversed the direction on two occasions, I just can’t figure out what they were or if there is an easier way.
  3. One FYI on the bone mentioned bond setup from Home Depot - if your fan does not have a mechanical way to reverse the fan direction, this setup does not allow for that. We have a fan that has no pull string or switch to change direction, it was all done via the remote. when we switched out the original remote receiver above the fan with this one, we lost the ability to reverse direction. Not a huge deal in this room but something to be aware of. Oddly, if we do a certain key press sequence (haven’t figured it out on purpose but have had it happen by accident twice) the fan did reverse. So I believe there is a way to do a workaround but out of the box there is no reverse function built in. Something to consider if you don’t have the mechanical switch or pull string. Otherwise, it works great and saves the state unlike the bond bridge itself (we have this for a few other fans and works fine if you don’t override with the original fan remote). If anyone has an idea about how to use this setup that enables reverse direction with the remote/C4 I’d love to know!
  4. Just to confuse things even more, here’s what the 4Sight renewal email says about Apple Watch - yes, it’s confusing and yes it says ‘alerts’ but it also says ‘control your home’. Not super honest with this. I know it’s not available from monitoring these boards but most users won’t know that. Again, just confusing . . .
  5. I use my iPhone for anything like closing apps, moving them, etc. haven’t found a good driver that does everything for the ATV 4K consistently. Some have some of these functions but the play/pause is not consistent so in a few apps it works as it should and in others it only works as a select button. if you have an iPhone/iPad do some of these less needed items with that - or use the original remote. Not optimal but it works. Cheers!
  6. I recently picked up a car and paid for an updated audio system and really felt like Apple Music’s compression left the sound super flat. Been pretty happy with the Amazon HD service. The CarPlay integration leaves a little to be desired and I’m trying to get the hang of the C4 integration but the sound quality and music selection is pretty good so far. I think I pay 12.99/mo since I already pay for prime. just another option to consider.
  7. Yep, the Atlona matrices seem to work well when programmed correctly but are a bit finicky in terms of their settings. Sounds like it’s working for you based on Muj’s suggestion. I’m the ‘fellow member’ he was referring to. I can tell you that Atlona tech support was pretty awesome and they spent a good amount of time on a three way screen share with Muj and myself to get my matrix reprogrammed from a non-working mess of an install to up and running pretty darn well. If you are still having issues, I highly recommend contacting Muj to help you out. He rocks!
  8. I have an Atlona Opus and decided on that for the reasons Ari stated above. It was not set up correctly initially and we had a good number of issues (like all things in C4, if installed and programmed correctly things work well, if not you’ll have issues). Spent a lot of time with their support - who were great - and a remote installer I met on these forums and the experience has improved dramatically. Picture quality is great, reasonable switching times and just a few problems here and there when the resolution gets a little off but I think that is due to my TV box more than the matrix. I would definitely recommend considering it if you can’t find other options that hit all of your requirements.
  9. Yeah, having this same issue. The problem is compounded by the fact that there is no consistency between apps. Some let you use the select button to play/pause and select and others only allow it to be used as a select button, it may work in Disney+ and not Hulu or HBO Max and then work in Netflix. I just got a few Neeos and having this exact issue.
  10. I’m using the Araknis 810’s and they seem to be working pretty well for me for what that’s worth. Also, OvrC like @Cyknightmentioned above - and he knows WAY more than I ever will 😀
  11. I have an Araknis 310 and have a Poe scheduled for just this reason. In areas where I have no Poe and just regular plug in iPads I’m using the Kasa outlets on the same schedule. Both are working fine.
  12. Did your dealer update the firmware on your WAP? If so, maybe one of the settings above got changed and caused the issue. Odd that it would just stop working out of nowhere.
  13. @msgreenfhas one listed in the for sale section of the forum:
  14. Interesting. Great ideas so far - thanks for sharing!
  15. Came across a Nyce key fob and was curious what folks might be using these for? It is the 4 button version. I’ve done some searches but didn’t find much. Thanks!
