Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The USB INSTEON PowerLinc Modem is a USB-based home automation interface that allows PC- and hardware-based automation controllers to control INSTEON-compatible lights, appliances, heating/air conditioning systems and alarm systems directly via the INSTEON network. The dual-band interface sends and receives both powerline and radio frequency (RF) INSTEON signals, so it doubles as an Access Point. This makes it ideal for new INSTEON installs and if have or plan to use an RF-only INSTEON-compatible remote, thermostat, motion sensor and contact sensor. The RF signal can bypass electrical noise or attenuation near the PC and it pulls many of the "distant" INSTEON devices one hop closer, which can expand the size of potential installations into even larger homes and commercial buildings. New features: Built-in Dual-Band with RF function, acts like an Access Point for phase bridging and RF to/from power line; 1023 links (compared to around 800 links previously); Added a beep sounder ; Red/Green LED light; Supports faster reading and writing of the PLM's database by another controller; Much lighter weight ; No pass-through outlet. Please Note: The controller connected to the USB INSTEON PowerLinc Modem must remain powered on and running the controller program connected to the controller or host at all times of usage. Additionally, the dual-band interface does not supply power to external devices.

Works very well from Linux.

I'm not ready to say if it's something I'm doing, the serial to com port USB driver or the actual modem that causing my problem.

I started out using X10 a couple of years ago. Then decided to switch to Zwave. I really love the ZWave, but I didn't want to have to replace all of my X10 stuff right away so I ordered this.

I have to say it works really good with my VeraLite. The only complaint I have is that the X10 devices respond very slow. I don't know where the fault is, but it works and that's the main thing.

If you already have X10 devices, this is the way to go... I'll end up keeping some of the devices, but I would like All ZWave.

Works well. I use it as an X-10 controller for X-10 on/off modules (no dimming). My old X-10 controller stopped working, and can no longer be purchased. It was the type you could download the schedule to and then turn off your computer. This controller is not that way. Your computer has to be running all the time (which is not an issue for me). The computer does the schedule. Software is free by download off the web. The software is OK. The one feature I miss over my original software is a "month" selection for the schedule. You do have day of week, time of day, sunset/sunrise as a possible selections. I do like you can enable/disable a schedule (which works for me instead of the month scheduling), and there is a "test" selection, so you can test a schedule easily, or execute whenever you want. The software is really for the INSTEON type modules, so the software has more features for those, but it does work sufficiently for X-10. I use X-10 to turn on/off accent lights on my property (yard lights, window candles), yard fountains, and to control Christmas lights. X-10 modules are a lot cheaper then INSTEON, and I don't need the higher reliability (supposedly) that INSTEON provides. The controller I think puts out a stronger signal then my old controller, since I have fewer times where a light will not go on/off as scheduled. Note that the controller will turn on/off dimmer type X-10 modules, but only on/off, no dimming.

Works very well from Linux. It's just a basic serial device that is connected via USB (USB-to-serial adapter is used internally), so if you know how to control a serial device, you can control this one. If you aren't quite sure how to go about it, you might find Matt Randolph's plmtools to be very helpful, especially if you just want a command line method to control it without having to program anything. If you do want to do some programming (which was my intention) you'd find some useful info on the linuxha website at linuxha.com/athome/common/iplcd

I bought this along with a 2477D dimmer for my dining room and it worked perfectly without any configuration. Right away after I installed the dimmer, I sent it a dim command and it dimmed. No configuration at all.

Perfect.

By the way, because this does wireline and RF, it'll help you bridge unconnected circuits if you have another dual-band device on a different circuit. I certainly recommend having at least two dual-band devices, one for each phase.

I have used X10 modules for 25 years. I had been looking for a system to replace my aging X10 system. I tested the Insteon Controller, Modules and Access Points. Some lights turned on, others did not. The lights that turned on inexplicably did not turn off. I had used the access points to ensure adequate coverage of the controller signals throughout the house. I ultimately returned the Insteon devices. Very disappointing.

I bought this to replace another unit of the same type. The old unit has always had an annoying tendency to "hang" when a power failure occurs. It finally died (after another power failure). When we had a momentary power failure it would get itself into a state that could only be remedied by unplugging it, disconnecting it from my computer and then starting all over (I'm using Indigo 4 on a Mac). Theoretically, this thing should recover gracefully from a power failure. What good is a system that controls things in your house if, while you're away for a week, it suffers a power failure and stops functioning.

I don't know yet whether this unit will have the same flaw, its difficult to recreate. Only time will tell.

I was informed that my old reliable 2414U would not link with two new devices I bought; version 2 of the protocol was needed to be compatable. I tried to look into what was new or improved with the new protocol, but could only find something called, "extended messaging" that's not yet implemented. So this is just a money grab.

I'm okay with the "new" rip-off controller having many fewer features than the 2414U, mostly the lack of on-board execution, since I long ago added a lower power Mac Mini to be the Indigo server.

The reviews of the 2413U tended towards the unit being less reliable than the previous controllers. I'm here to say this has defiantly been the case in my installation. I would have 1 or 2 missed commands per month with the 2414U. With the 2413U I see 15 to 20 missed commands per month: same plug, same everything; even after adding four additional devices to the mesh/network.

Z-Wave is gaining ground and Insteon is playing games with their users; unnecessarily charging for repurchases and producing inferior products. It's like they're falling back on the failed X10 stratagy: cheaper and junker products feed into less profit which results in more cutbacks in quality and an even more dishonest business practices.
