What’s the coolest thing you made C4 do?

Recommended Posts

Whacky programming, something convenient, something so behind the scenes you never notice but matters? 

 

I can’t think of anything else my house can do for me. (Get a bigger house?)

 

Not that exciting but I have programming that limits run time on a dehumidifier because of noise between 12a and 5a  woo!

I have C4 keypads control the charging and climate for my Tesla Model S.  I can push a button in my bedroom to turn on the climate controls so that my car can be nice and warm when I get in on a cold winter day.  The LED colours also indicate charging status.  This is kind of a klugey setup as it requires an additional PC with a web browser to accept commands and send them to the Tesla API.

I think all the "Cool" stuff I end up programming tends to be just a load of fairly basic things just with a tonne of vars involved. Generally alarm sets + unsets based on time, day, user, weather etc. All triggering a/v, blinds, lights, doors (locks), HVAC.

motion sensor in the front yard for feral and bad neighbors relieving their animals in my front lawn. The sprinklers always seem to come on at the worst of times.

 

Whistle on the yard speakers if the dogs are barking too much will spook them and shut them up promptly.
