Re: When will the Insteon Siren 2868-222 be better supported

I'd also like to ask for a better implementation. At this point, even the initial linking isn't really working as it needs to be done manually. Even then, it is not obvious how to trigger each action.

Thanks for the feedback. Adding some customer commands for the siren is definitely on our request list.

Actually, just started moving to z-wave after my latest all on insteon glitch so might not want to install it anyway. I hope to get better stability and response from the switches, and there seems to be way way more choices for modules.

Re: When will the Insteon Siren 2868-222 be better supported

I tried to use the new commands for setting the Insteon Siren between the siren and chime sounds, but I get the following error:

INSTEON Commands Error plugin does not define method setCurrentAlarmType

Anyone experience this or have ideas about it?

Wanted to report the same as above. Would appreciate if you all could push out a quick fix so we can use these things.... 7.3.0001 would be just fine!

Have you tried 7.3.1? I think it might have made it into that release.

Afraid that one was discovered right after we released 7.3.1. It'll be fixed in 7.3.2 for sure.

Indigo 7.4 is now available and fixes the bug above.

Re: When will the Insteon Siren 2868-222 be better supported

Unless there is some other plugin update or something else I need to do, it appears to still be broken in 7.4..... I resync'd the device and used the new menu setting to try to set to chime. It does not work via Indigo command. However I can turn it on and off manually from the devices menu.


Code: Select all
   Trigger                         Doorbell Rings Siren 3
   INSTEON Commands Error          plugin does not define method setCurrentAlarmType  <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< trying to get it to set chime vs siren on the fly
   Schedule                        Doorbell Rings Siren 3 (delayed action)
   Updated                         "SmokeBridge 3 Main Attic" on
   Schedule                        Doorbell Rings Siren 3 (delayed action)
   Updated                         "SmokeBridge 3 Main Attic" off


Tried define and sync again per instructions, and ran the unit turning on and off only via Indigo actions. Still no joy.....

Re: When will the Insteon Siren 2868-222 be better supported

I'm not sure how it happened, but you don't have the version of the Insteon Commands plugin that was included in 7.4.0. Your version is older. Try stopping the Indigo Server and re-running the 7.4.0 installer.
