Re: INSTEON Switches (SwitchLinc and ToggleLinc)

You'll need to isolate when the problem occurs: when Indigo controls the switch or when one of the switches control the light. Once you've done that, does the problem always occur in that case (Indigo control or other switch control)? If so, then the problem is probably a missing Insteon link. But if the problem is sporadic, then the issue is likely noise/interference or congestion that is causing the command to not make it to Indigo (or to the switch). In that case the solution is to try to improve the reliability of the Insteon network with some signal troubleshooting.

Are there any solutions for 0-10v dimming that is getting more common on led panels nowadays? I do know they once had a 0-10v dimmer however it was discontinued a few years back.

Re: INSTEON Switches (SwitchLinc and ToggleLinc)

I have been having my single band switchlinc dimmers (2476d) go bad en mass. I replaced 12 of them in the last 6 months or so with the newer dual band 2477d. Now it looks like I may need to replace another 12 or so. Bad units have 38 i2 firmware or 27 i1 firmware (per Indigo).

Question: Should I continue to replace 2476d with new 2477d units or switch? Is there a cheaper option of internet instead of insteon dimmer that makes sense and works well. I am reluctant to go to Z-wave as my equipment is all Insteon right now. I looked at the Shelly dimmers but I want the switches themselves to dim, not to rely on software dimming. And experience with this?

Re: INSTEON Switches (SwitchLinc and ToggleLinc)

I started to switch to z-wave because I had problems with Insteon. I'm about half way done, andI couldn't be happier. Fro switches, I'm using Homeseer HS-WD200+ and HS-WS200+ and am very happy with them. I'm also switching most wireless Insteon devices to z-wave.

How deep is the Homeseer dimmer? How does it compare to instean? The Leviton has screw terminals, insteon has wires. What about this one?

Re: INSTEON Switches (SwitchLinc and ToggleLinc)

The homeseer is about 1 1/2" deep and it has screw terminals instead of wires (mush prefer this). Insteon has several sizes depending on version and type, so hard to say how it compares, but it is a bit on the larger size. It helps though that it has screw terminals, so a lot less things have to go in to the box.
