So what can it do? It really is a grab-bag (or, as I prefer, a Smorgasbord ) of functionality:
- A device that lets you easily create sensor zones that switch a relay device on and (timed) off, with enough brains to deal with real-life situations such as "turn the light off and keep it off while you leave." Operation can be suppressed by an Indigo variable. Comes with an action to tie in programmed sensor triggers. And stuff.
- Devices that link an INSTEON KeypadLinc button to any Indigo device or variable in both directions. You just create one link device, and presto! the button light tracks the device state and the button changes it. If you have KeypadLincs, this is huge. If you don't, it's useless.
- A classic garage door control device that takes a door sensor and a dry contact wired to your garage door button and turns them into a standard Indigo relay device smart enough to get the 99% case right. Lets you say "close the garage door" and have it do the right thing. And it's smart enough to recognize when it's confused.
- A device that automatically watches all your INSTEON leak sensors and makes it easy to trigger alarms when things go wrong. And get quiet notifications when they don't report in regularly. It's all inside one device.
- A device that automatically watches all devices with battery state and tells you which ones are low (and how low).
- A few more odds and ends.
As always, documentation can be found inside the plugin or separately on the web at http://www.cynic.org/indigo/plugins/online/behaviors.html.
