Hi there,

Did you have a power outage or any similar event before the remotes stopped working?

Did you reboot all wireless routers, extenders, etc?

I rebooted everything

Did you have a power outage or any similar event before the remotes stopped working?

If so, then something may have blown or shorted and that will help troubleshooting.

If not, then your Control4 installer will need to investigate further.
