EA-1 Capabilities

Recommended Posts

Am automating my summer house, will an EA-1 be able to handle one room with some lighting and one AC?

We have one project with an EA-1 running 32 zigbee lights, 4 SR-260s, 7 Sonos devices, 5 IP controlled TVs, 2 IP controlled AVRs, 2 IP controlled Blu-rays, an NVR with 6 IP cams, a DS2, DSC IT-100, Hunter Douglas PowerView Hub with 6 shades, and a MatterLink (IP to RF hub) with control of 5 motorized screens.

You’ll be fine lol.

there is no hard limit on the EA controllers. What you will see is a difference in audio, project, and zigbee performance. If anything begins to suffer simply add a more powerful controller.

IMHO the biggest shortcoming with an EA-1 is the lack of proper audio output(s).

Preach.

I just added an EA-1 to a room with an AVR just for audio (TV may come later).  EA-1 connected and turns on and off the AVR but I don't get any audio out of the HDMI.

I tested the HDMI from another output and I get sound through the AVR.  What am I missing?  Do I need to somehow strip the sound out of the HDMI?

thanks

I got excited there for a second.  Disable HDMI is not checked.  I did notice it says"C4-EA1(PRE-RELEASE)"  in the product info.  That can't be good but not sure that's part of the problem.

So you bought used pre release non production hardware...

Well, even unused the built in audio function on the EA1 will use a little bit of processing, but that's getting technical ;)

 

True. The EA-3 has that same audio function as well though.
