Insteon is nice for a lot of reasons. I like the speed and reliability of commands, that every device I add improves my Insteon PLC network, that plug-in Signalincs offer signal redundancy and bridge electrical phases, and that all the devices so far look nice and feel solid, the way quality electronics should. The wall switches don't buzz when you press them.pavlov70 said:I've been extremely happy with Insteon in general and the KeypadLincs in particular. IMO the biggest weakness in the KL's is that there is no software to program them yet. You have to program each button manually. Doesn't sound bad until you have 4-5 devices controlling the same light. Other then that, they're great. They look and feel very high quality.
Yep, the software is in the works and is supposed to be out by the end of the year.Rupp said:
Hah! I've done that too. I converted my KPL's to 8-button mode and installed them alongside a regular switchlinc. It was the excuse I needed to rip out the 1-gang J-boxes and replace them with retrofit doubles. It works really well. Just don't forget to cap the load wire if it isn't driving a load.fitzpatri8 said:The trouble is, unlike the Switchlincs, they don't look at all like people expect a traditional lightswitch to look. That has proven a little intimidating to one guest already, who preferred to navigate in the dark rather than accidentally push the wrong button. I might have to put a Switchlinc and a Kepadlinc side-by-side to keep the whole system compatible with old-fashioned guests!
