Music Control would be nice as well (within the App). Scenes integrating lights and security would be nice as well.

How and why would Control 4 be a 'cost effective' system and why would you need Clare Connect to accomplish such? Control 4 has a nice App, so why Clare Connect? ... Thanks!
Clare connect and C4 seem to be redundant. I hadn't heard about Clare before. I assume they developed plugins for C4 for integration. But they are a automation system apparently. I didn't spend much time on their website to really figure out what they do. I don't see C4 being "cost effective". Maybe compared to Crestron, but significantly more expensive than the majority of automation systems.

I know of a system that does exactly what you are asking for....

Polished app? Simple to set up? But have a Vista panel and LTE cell dealer....

Goodbye to a great audio and video genius and writer... JOHN GANNON. I enjoyed your friendship, wit and a nice long run we took around Indianapolis at CEDIA years back... and for buying my Runco 980 Ultra years back... you saved my ass! Rest in peace.
