I have a Vantage Q-Link system that I'm looking to start migrating to Infusion (pick up new MC & mounting block on eBay, rest is compatible). My Q-Link hardware was wired/installed by a local dealer who's long gone. However, I did all the system programming/automation work anyway, with their Q-link software he gave me (and I was able to keep updated until it was discontinued).
Anyway, long story short, I'm trying to get my hands on the newer Vantage Design Center software for the Infusion MC. So far I've failed. In older threads people contacted Vantage dealer support which I have twice now and either that's a black hole or they just don't want to respond. Searching the net has also resulted in nothing. I've done programming/system design for years, so I really don't need hand holding -- just the software.
Does anyone have any thoughts or a copy they could help me out with ?
Did the folks looking for vantage software buy homes with the system? Or was there a dealer / installer that hasn't been helpful?
Have you tried another dealer?
The software I am sure is dealer only and I am sure it's against Vantage policy and agreement to distribute their software to unapproved users.
I suspect that's not new info to the folks looking to find the software.
the other way around it is some automation controllers have bidirectional integration with vantage. So, the vantage system becomes a lighting system (its core strength) and the automation controller is what manages all. Some automation controllers cater to DIY where you get access to the configuration tools.
I just purchased a home that has the Vantage Infusion Controller II. If someone could help with a link to the software it would be greatly appreciated, I would really prefer to do the programming myself. Also, is the smarthome.io device still the best choice for Alexia/IOS integration?
Why do people that have systems in there homes go into forums and beg for software saying they can do it themselves? If you can do spend the $10,000 and become a dealer. The software is for licensed installers. Period. If you can afford the hardware you can afford someone to program it.
