  1. When I view the cameras on the C4 app they show as SD by default. How do I change them to default HD? This was the same on the Hikvision app but their was a toggle to change from SD to HD. Thanks
  2. Hi everyone, I'm brand new so please excuse my ignorance. I've been searching through this forum and a lot of resources online. Apologies if my newbie questions have already been answered somewhere else - perhaps direct me there. About to start on a brand new construction of a home in Australia. Was ready to include the Schneider Electric CBUS system and Wiser control as the home automation solution specification. But then I started doing some of my of own research and it appeared that the Schneider CBUS with Wiser control system and user software generally hasn't received a lot of love from Schneider and Control4 might better suit the outcomes I am trying to achieve. From my online research it also appeared that Control4 has a lot of user focussed online resources and information compared to CBUS. From an outcome perspective here is what I'm trying to achieve with a system: - Automated lighting control and scenes. There are a lot of lights inside and also outside and couldn't possibly control each individually - Electronic lock control for the external entry doors and a video intercom at the main entry - Basic media integration. I use an appletv to stream most media. If possible also the ability to make use of an enormous library of MP3s which are stored locally. Simple multi-room audio. Don't require multi-room video - Blind/shade control - Specifying a Mitsubishi VRF HVAC system. Mitsubishi has a pretty good wifi control app. A bonus but not essential would be integration of the HVAC with the main automation control system - Integration with the security system. Ness M1 with Hikvision IP cameras is what was recommended but can look at alternatives if better integration - Integration with keypad and RFID access control on the external doors - Away/Home features - Remote viewing of camera and security event alerts - User adjustable settings. Not the whole thing but little tweaks to lighting scenes for example or which physical buttons control what - Price is a secondary consideration. Reliability and user friendliness rank first - Home will otherwise be wired with Unify switches and access points Next step I will speak with a Control4 dealer and get a specific proposal. But I thought it might be good to check with this community first for their biased (or hopefully somewhat unbiased) views on the good/bad/ugly of C4 and in particular why they chose it over CBUS. Or perhaps why someone chose CBUS over C4 if they are on this forum. Of course not wanting to start any arguments. Just a newbie looking for some advice. Thanks in advance. And again sorry if this has already been answered a 1000 times before. Point me toward those answers and I'll leave everyone alone.

  4. Currently have 12 cameras (all coax). Unable to pull Cat6 to half of the locations but would like to replace current DVR system and cameras. What would you recommend that integrates with my C4 system? Also don’t want to spend $10k.
  5. We are releasing a new solution for RGB LED Control with Control4. There is not so many good and affordable solutions of this kind right now, this driver may fill a gap many people wanted since a while. If you have tried other RGB LED Control solution for Control4 that are on the market right now, you may have find they may produce disappointing results, or other solutions may be better but for a price. The driver we are presenting if focussed mainly to work with RGB LED and use DMX as the standard lightning control protocol. It teams with a powerful interface that is the RS-232 DMX Engine from Engineering Solutions Inc. This little box have enough power to allow a complete management of RGB LED, Color effects, smooth fades, and more. Best of all, it does cost less than the other popular DMX solution for Control4. The driver fully support Advanced Lightning Agent scenes with perfectly synchronous activation with no external tool required to build a scene, it also feature a highly user friendly color effect management and native Control4 dimmer control to keep the experience similar the same as with Control4 own lightning system. Quick features list: - Native Control4 Dimmer Control - Full Advanced Lightning Agent support - Perfectly smooth scene activation with no popcorn effect - Smooth fades and color transition - Built-in Color Loop and Chase Effect - Effects are fully customizable - No CPU overhead - Support parallel tasking - Ultra fast response time - Exclusive Effect Switch for easy color effect creation - White override for RGBW Lightning The total cost of the driver and the interface is lower than the actual most popular DMX solution for Control4 and will produce better results, guarantee. Many people are already using it and they liked it. Check out this demo video of a basement with RGBW lightning, all controlled with Control4 and this driver: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQsbtevZwSg The whole DMX Lightning control solution is sold on the Houselogix Marketplace: https://www.houselogix.com/shop/lighting Driver documentation: http://www.domaudeo.com/Control4/Drivers/DMX/Instructions.pdf Driver package download: http://www.domaudeo.com/Control4/Drivers/DMX/DMX_for_Control4_v1.2.zip For pricing information, go to Houselogix https://www.houselogix.com/shop/domaudeo or contact info@domaudeo.com Feel free to ask question on this forum, we will gladly try our best to answer.
  6. Currently have a Crestron lighting system and would like to look at options to replace. What do you recommend?
  7. Hello Everyone, I've had my first Control4 system installed in 2017and it was love at first sight. I installed it in a show room for DEMO purposes (i construct and sell houses and apartments). I am really satisfied but unfortunately the time to sell the house has come and the new owner doesn't want to use it. That being said I was wondering if I can sell the equipment online. The dealer in my country is not very helpful in terms of buying and selling Control4 equipment from another source, except from his company so I turned online. The system comprises of: -Control4 C4 EA5 Controller -SR 260 Remote Control -SR 250 Remote Control -4 Zone Amplifier Control4 C4 AMP104 -Touch screen White 7" In Wall Control4 C4 WALL7 (with its plastic housing) -HD Anywhere MHUB 4K HDMI Matrix (4x4) MHUB 4K431 I have the invoices of payment for all the aforementioned equipment. Please feel free to contact me if interested. Cheers

  10. I have a Control 4 Based Home Automation System running in a 4 Bed room Villa. The Set up has 5 Alexa units in each of the respective areas 1. Living Room 2. Home Theater 3. Master bed Room 4. Sons room 5. Daughters room. Each room has lights that are connected to Clipsal dimmer and Air conditioner connected via Infra red to the Control 4 Controller. Also Apple TV and Tata Sky controlled via IR to the Control 4 Controller Each room can be controlled independantly via Control4 Touch Panel installed in the each respective room. All good. Now the customer asked us to install Alexa into every room so that it can control device via Voice Commands. 5 Alexa Units were installed and programmed for Control 4 device control. Now we have programmed each area to the controlled with the following voice command Alexa , Room/Location Name , Device , State ie. For Master Bed Room Area to Turn on the Lights we have to say --> Alexa Masterbed room , Lights on ie. For Master Bed Room Area to Turn on the Tata Sky we have to say ie. --> Alexa Masterbed room , Tatasky on AND ie. For Home Theater Area to Turn on the Lights we have to say --> Alexa Home Theater room , Lights on ie. For Home Theater Area to Turn on the Tata Sky we have to say ie. --> Alexa Home Theater , Tatasky on We have programmed this way and it works fine. Now my customer comes and says he does not want to mention the Location Name every time. If he is in the Bed Room, he wants to say "Alexa, Turn on lights " and the lights of the Bed room alone must turn on. And if he is in Home theater and if he says the same voice command "Alexa, Turn on lights " ---> Only the Home Theater Lights must turn on. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I have checked creating a Smart Devices Group and tried various ways to do this. But Alexa allows only one Unique Group name or voice command as all 5 of my alexa are connected. Is there a way in which i can make the Alexa in a Room or location to control only the devices in that room or location alone and that too by giving a simple command like Alexa ,Device , State i.e Alexa, Lights on or Alexa Tatasky on Can anyone help me do this in Alexa. Each room i must be able to use the command Alexa Device and State to control the devices in that location only. I tried the Smart Home Group but it does not help me create a unique group name only for one area. I tried this option. Kindly help.
  11. Hi, Can someone recommend a RGB lighting engine for pools where the lights are waterproof and compatible with Control4 (should have control4 drivers)?
  12. Chowmain - Generic Fan Controller Driver Infra red fans are widely available around the world. Chowmain's Generic Fan Controller Driver allows you to easily integrate multi speed IR fan's into Control4 for increased comfort in your home. Our driver introduces a low cost multi speed fan solution since no expensive hardware is required (infra red hardware comes standard with on all Control4 systems). Once integrated you can use your android tablet, iPad, Control4 touchscreen or system remote control to control you fan. You can also schedule your fan to turn on, control your fan remotely or even adjust the fan speed based upon temperature variables in your home. Infra-red fan's and fan controllers can be obtained from manufacturers such as Clipsal and Lutron. Note this driver will work with any infra-red fan with discrete infra red codes. Features Multiple ModesOffLowMediumMedium HighHighDefinable Hex IR codes in propertiesEasy to manageCan have multiple copies of the same driver with different IR codesDefinable IR repeat counts.Optional On code can be sent before any speed change to ensure the fan is on (not required by most IR fans)IR BindingYou can bind it to any infra red output in your Control4 system.Definable Preset LevelCan be configured to Low, Medium, Medium High or High. This is used for when a toggle or on command is issued (usually by the Control4 SR-250).Frequently Asked Questions Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? Multi speed fans have always been hard to integrate into Control4. In the past people would try to use dimmers (a big no no) or add in multiple relays which is extremely costly and the user interface is clunky. This solution is an inexpensive and elegant solution which works with infra-red controlled fans that are available all around the world. Best thing is that you don't need any additional hardware. Are there any other cool things we can do with this driver? This utilises the new Control4 fan proxy which is only utilised in the Control4 Fan Speed Control (C4-4SF120). As it is a 120 volt product only, alot of countries will not have access to this product. As such many of you won't be familar with this proxy. This new proxy gives you the ability to control multi speed fans on a singular user interface (under the lighting page). The speeds shown are off, low, medium, medium-high and high. What hardware will this work on? Pretty much any Control4 system on OS 2.5.3 (HC200,250,300,500,800,1000) How do I find out more information about the driver? Please see the links below for more information about the driver. Download Installation Guide How do I buy the driver?

  13. Hi there. Hopefully this will be something someone has tried and can tell me if it works. I have a client who has 12 zones of audio all via Sonos Connect Amps. Trouble is he really just wants to use Airplay for all his musical needs. I would like to know how clever C4 is when it comes to streaming through Sonos.. I believe it recently got a bit cleverer in that we now have some control over the line-in so I'm hoping that will extend to what I need to do. If I were to put in an EA3 / EA5 / however many streams via however many processors, then connect the audio outs of those to some random line ins from the many Connect Amps, would the system be clever enough to route audio into a line in and through the Sonos system to the relevant endpoint. I would like to create a Shairbridge instance for each room which would 'auto power' that room. Each room will of course contain a Sonos Connect Amp driver. In theory it seems like all the parts are there, but I just don't know if the logic exists in the drivers. eg EA3 line out 1 -> Sonos Living Room line in EA3 line out 2 -> Sonos Kitchen line in Shairbridge driver in Master Bedroom, auto power on Master Bedroom, Sonos Connect Amp exists in Master Bedroom Customer airplays to "Master Bedroom" shairbridge driver: will the EA3 start a stream, pipe it into the Sonos Living Room line in, then tell the Sonos Master Bedroom to play from the "Sonos Living Room line in"? Massive thanks to anyone who can offer advice on that

  15. Chowmain - Plex Full Plex is a centralized home media playback system with a powerful central server (Plex Media Server) that streams its media to many Plex player Apps which can reside on a number of devices from Roku, Amazon Fire TV, HTPC’s, mobile devices and even Smart TV’s. The Server is available on many platforms like Windows, OS X, and many flavors of Linux, as well as many NAS devices. The Chowmain Plex Full driver is one of the only Control4 drivers to have full library integration including Movies, TV Shows, Music and photo browsing/searching/playback and can be used to control Plex on various platforms including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Sony Android TV’s (FY15 up), Dedicated HTPC’s running Plex Home Theater or Plex Media Player. This complete solution provides the consumer will seamless playback of content from any Control4 interface including SR-250/SR-260, Onscreen Navigator, Touchscreens, IPhone/Android based Navigators and more. This driver will only work on Control4 OS 2.7 and above. Features Ability to browse/search/playback Movies, TV Episodes, Music & Photos from any Plex client/server with cover art including local or remote servers. Ability to browse content by recently added, recently aired, recently viewed and more. Ability to resume movies or tv episodes from where you have left off. Ability to program any event in Control4 to trigger playback. Eg keypad on the wall, security system disarm, motion sensor trigger. Ability to automatically turn the room on upon playback. This is good for dedicated Plex systems where you might want to send playback of content from your mobile device or tablet to your TV. Two way feedback for client state (Play, Pause, Stop, Playing Video, Playing Music, Playing Photo, In Navigation) Can be setup for any Plex Client including Plex Home Theater, Plex Media Player, Plex for Roku, Plex for Amazon Fire TV and Plex for /Android TV's. Ability to launch Plex on Roku and Amazon Fire TV devices. Upon media playback the driver will launch Plex on the device, wait for it to startup and then start playback. Support for Sky Now TV and Telstra TV boxes (Roku rebadged boxes). Ability to return to the Roku, Amazon Fire TV or Sony TV drivers upon exiting Plex. Makes the experience seamless. Ability to return to onscreen navigator on playback ended. This is great if you want to hide Plex’s interface and use Control4 only. Ability to switch users. This allows for content restriction based upon username/passcode. Limit children to G rated content only. This also allows multiple family members to resume playback from different spots. Frequently Asked Questions I'm confused which Plex driver should i be using? A while ago we created the Plex Home Theater driver and Plex Media Player driver. These drivers utilised the older Control4 media player interface which could only handle movie integration. Back in August 2015 we released Kodi Full. This driver utilised a new method to display content on Control4’s devices. We decided that we would improve on our Plex driver’s by doing something similar and have named it to match our Kodi Full driver. Plex Home Theater is still an excellent driver and may do everything that you want. Plex Full however is superior to Plex Home Theater and the development time period reflects that. Do i need to the Plex Media Server driver as well? No additional drivers are required to operate Plex Full. Please read the installation PDF to get an understanding on how the driver works and how to set it up. Can you give us some examples of how we could use this driver? Browse/search/playback movies, tv shows, music, photos from Plex.on any Control4 user interface including touchscreens, onscreens, smart phones, tablets and remote controls. Resume content that you have started watching from where you left off from a different Plex client. Complete your media playing solution by pairing our driver with a Roku or an Amazon Fire TV. Both devices can utilise streaming services such as Netflix or Hulu. With our driver installed the customer will now be able to browse/search/playback any of his own personal content on the system. Create the perfect cinema experience by dimming the lights down when a movie starts, ramp it back up when the movie ends or if the user pauses or stops the movie. This driver provides two way feedback on what media you're consuming and what the state of the media player is. It will tell you when the movie is playing, paused, stopped or if it is a video, photo, song or if it is in navigation. This information is useful for customising your lighting and environment to suit your customer's requirements. Start a movie on your tablet and then cast it to your theater to have your theater automatically turn on. Fall asleep at the TV? The driver will automatically turn the room off once the movie has finished after a period of time. Setup a button on your onwall keypad to start playback of you or your family’s favourite movie. One touch playback. Great for kids. Limit the content your children can watch to G or PG-13 rated content by using User/Pin codes. What hardware will this work on? This driver has been tested on Roku (including Telstra TV and Sky Now TV variants), Amazon Fire TV, Sony FY15 Android TV’s, Plex Home Theater (OSX/Windows), Plex Media Player (OSX/Windows). If you choose to use it on any other platform you do so at your own risk. It should work however you will find the problem is launching into the application on the platform of choice. It is recommended that prior to purchasing this driver you utilise the free 48 hour trial period for testing. NOTE: Amazon Fire TV OS 5 and above currently has a bug which do not allow multiple ADB connections simulataneously. If you chose to utilize the the Fire TV with OS 5.0 and above then you cannot add in the official Control4 Amazon Fire TV driver. This is due to a single connection limitation for ADB. You can however utilize the Houselogix Amazon Fire TV driver as it will launch Plex for us. Why do you only support OS 2.7 and above? We utilise methods exposed only to the Control4 OS 2.7 Driverworks software development kit. It will not work with any lower versions of OS. I want to try this driver out before buying it?

  16. I have a NX-8E security panel that I am trying to integrate into Control4 (OS3) and am not well versed enough in the home security realm to understand how this is accomplished. I have read other threads and looked at manuals but I am still not entirely sure what Im looking for. Could someone please shed some light on the following in lay mans terms? 1. How is the panel physically connected to the control4 EA3 ? I have an unused Cat5e wire running between the security panel and the EA3 controller. I have an NX587E provided by the security company that I have no idea how to install on the security panel or my EA3 module. There is also a 10-pin RS232 (J11 ?) connector on the main board of the NX8E.. is this used at all? 2. What driver do I use? I see the GE NetworX NX587e driver is now OBSOLETE in OS3... is there an alternative? Ive downloaded a NX584 driver and it says in the documentation that it can connect with a NX8E panel as well, Im not sure how tho. 3. Having no experience programming a security system do I need to involve someone from the security company for this install? The security system is current working 100% properly independent of Control4. Any help is appreciated and the more specific you can be, the better. Thanks
