upstatemike,upstatemike said:My problem comes when I install a SwitchLinc (with no load) to control a set of LampLincs and I want to change the ramp-rate. I have to go ahead and link the LampLincs to the switch so I have a way to dim them which is required for setting the ramp-rate. But once the link is established the ramp rate is locked to the default that was there when the link was created.
I ran into this problem too... was trying to setup a Switchlinc V2 dimmer with no actual load to control a Lamplinc V2 in the same room.
I fought with it for some time and then called Smarthome support (which I had never done before). The girl that assisted me was very knowledgeable and talked me through some steps that weren't documented in the manuals.
Within 10mins she had it working for me. I think that Smarthome has a message board with an Insteon forum that may have some tips about stuff like this too, but I've never spent any time there yet.
Maybe SmartLabsMike can post a link to a forum where this is discussed or otherwise advise?
