Remote Control Question
#1
I'm currently tinkering with a GC-100-06 and hope to replace my Harmony Hubs that I currently have in use. If I am understanding this correctly, I can use practically any remote I want with the GC-100-06 (using RS232 into my TV) in conjunction with CQC to control what I am doing with the Harmony Hub?

For example, I have the following

Watch TV
  1. Turn on TV
  2. Switch input to TV
  3. Starting Channel is Channel 2
Watch Apple TV
  1. Turn on TV
  2. Switch input to HDMI1
Watch Security Camera
  1. Turn on TV
  2. Switch input to HDMI2
My assumption is that I can store the IR commands from my TV and from my Apple TV in CQC and then have the programming in CQC. While the Harmony Hub does the job, it is very flaky and is cloud based. Also, the programming interface is really terrible.

Another assumption is that I can use a standard universal remote to execute the program stored in CQC? This one, for example.

One thing I would like to do that is similar to what a buddy with Control4 has set up:
  • Door bell ring or NVR polygon detection at front door.┬áIf TV is on,┬áswitch to picture in picture with┬ásecurity camera HDMI in PIP, then send IR code to NVR to display only front door camera. Or just switch to the HDMI input that shows all cameras. Could come up with a variety of these scenarios with alarm sensors as well (eg, fence gate, driveway sensor, etc.). Could also just have it display this for like 10 - 30 seconds, then go back to whatever was showing (e.g., live tv).
