Re: INSTEON MorningLinc

According to the Smarthome site, the new INSTEON 2862-222 LOCK CONTROLLER can control multiple locks with a single controller. How would that work with Indigo setup? How would you specify which door you want to lock or unlock?

Thanks,

Rob

I don't believe it can controls multiple locks independently. So to Indigo it would be just the single device and turning it ON or OFF controls all the locks associated with the controller.

Re: INSTEON MorningLinc

So, it appears that the Insteon Lock Controller can control multiple locks but only to put them all in the same state, e.g. lock them all or unlock them all at the same time. (At least that is what I have been able to glean from this thread and reading the SmartHome site. Can anyone confirm this? I need to control three locks -- front door, back door, garage -- and I might be able to live with making them all run off the same control object. If I want to run them separately then I would need multiple 2862-222's.

BTW, has anyone determined if there is any security on the link or are we just depending on security through obscurity? I live in a very low crime area and don't worry too much about locked doors but still I would like my system to be as secure as possible.

And could someone confirm that, as far as Indigo goes, the 2862-222 talking to an MiLocks lock is the way to go?

Thanks!

It's really the only choice until/if/when Indigo support ZWave locks.

Insteon / Z-Wave / Bryant Evolution Connex /Tesla / Roomba / Elk M1 / SiteSage / Enphase Enlighten / NOAA Alerts

Thanks. That was what I had been able to deduce from the postings but it can be hard to find everything due to the volume of information.

Re: INSTEON MorningLinc

The Vera Bridge DOES work for Z-wave locks and allows you to monitor and control them individually, both from Indigo and Mios, But I keep hoping somebody will be able to convince Kwikset to provide a linkage to their Kevo Plus gateway; the kevos are the clear winners in convenience in my book, but their remote UI is garbage.

I'm 99% sure that is correct – you need additional controllers for each lock you want to be able to independently control.

Re: INSTEON MorningLinc --- old style 2450 with key fob

I had a three layer system that worked pretty good for years. Recently the controllers died

Since all things I buy instead seem have about a 4 year life I figured that it was the 2450 and tried to switch key fobs between my working 2450

Since I couldn't synch an of the "bad" key fobs using the proven good 2450.. my assumption is its the key fob

seem kind of wierd. Any thoughts ?

Re: INSTEON MorningLinc

This double linking process must be re-executed when you replace the PLM. I got my 2862-222 door-lock controllers working again, thanks to this information.

I’m confused though about the recent addition of the “lock/unlock” commands. After executing the double relinking, none of my three insteon lock controllers (one old style, two new style) appear as an option in the Indigo Lock or Unlock commands. The list of lock controllers is <null>.

Are these commands for other types of lock controllers, but not insteon?

Re: INSTEON MorningLinc

Yeah, I'm pretty sure Matt hasn't changed that device type to be a lock. My guess is that since it doesn't report it's current state (it's really a command only device akin to a RemoteLinc) that making it an Indigo lock device, where state is quite important, would result in a less than optimal user experience.
