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.
And therein lies the problem: These PLMs are VERY VERY FRAGILE. Even the most momentary power interruption, power spike, or brown-out (low voltage event) will kill a PLM stone, cold dead, and I know this because I am already on my 5th PLM in 8 years and about to go onto my 6th, since my generator guy switched my power over to my generator (a very high performance, 40kW model, not some cheap $500 one!) during a routine load-transfer test and bang, death comes to PLM #5 and I'm off to buy PLM #6 on Amazon. At $70 a pop, the expense of buying a new PLM once or twice a year is starting to add up!
It would therefore be really nice if Insteon could figure out some way of designing these PLMs such that they are actually self-protected against outages, spikes, and so on. The device *has* to talk to the power line, so you can't just hide it behind a big power filter, but it could almost certainly have better protection while still letting the signal pass through. Perhaps via an inductive loop or something, Insteon, if you are listening. :)
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.
