As of this morning I have hit the 100 mark for installed Insteon devices. I guess it's about time to decide if this is the technology I'm going to standardize on... before I get too deeply committed.
I've had 2 bad relay switches. Both were slave units so no load attached. Both worked fine for a few hours and then just died.Mike said:Congratulations. Out of curiousity, how have you fared with bad units? Seems you have enough to provide a better percentage.
While some of the smaller installations were showing 20% failure rates on early units, I'm guessing you had better results than that since you have a real sample.

At this point I probably don't need any RF SignaLincs at all. I'll check that out some time when I get a chance.Guy Lavoie said:Thanks, that's interesting. So you only have about a dozen Icon devices, which will make any reliability comparison between Icons and Switchlincs a bit harder. Are you using the more expensive Switchlincs because of the load rating (if there is indeed a difference...) or is it just that you started this a while back when Icons weren't yet released? Its also interesting that you only appear to need two RF signalincs.
Needless to say, your installation is a nice case study for Insteon. Keep us posted on your experiences.
It has been manual up to now and I have been holding off on some non-critical stuff until a better method is available. I have ordered a USB PowerLinc and hope to test out PowerHome in the near future.jeffx said:How are you handling the linking/programming of all these switches? Are you doing it manually?
