I need an All-in-one solution for a universal remote system to control my A/V system, some lighting, irrigation system, and security cameras. I have a small 1500 sq ft home with decent wifi network coverage.
I've used several versions of Logitechs harmony remotes, with the most recent being the Harmony touch and 1100. So far I've been less than impressed except for the fact that I was able to get down to one remote. I have some Lutron light switches with IR receivers. I have the NEST thermostat controller. I am looking for a networkable irrigation timer to replace my current system.
I like the Control4 system that was demo'd at Best Buy's Magnolia Home showroom but I wanted to see what other options I have. Any suggestions?
Based on your description of your needs, you may also want to look at Roomie Remote and iRule. Depending on your components they may be able to meet your needs and are far cheaper than Control4 or RTI. Roomie is DIY and iRule is either DIY or pro installed.
I just became a Control4 dealer and I have to say I'm pretty impressed by it especially with the price points. I was comparing a friend's URC MX-980 today and cost wise a Control4 HC250 and SR250 remote is cheaper comparing with URC + the MRX basestation. It's really a great starter to grow your system around.
