In this episode, I show you how I reset my entire INSTEON system back to factory settings so I can set it up again. Why would you want to do this? Perhaps you're having flaky issues with your system that you can't resolve. Perhaps you purchased a house with INSTEON and you can't figure out how it was set up. Perhaps you've learned a lot over the years and just want to start from a clean slate. For more information, go to -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- You need to see this: "Ultimate Desk Setup" -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

INSTEON Cross Linking Tutorial

When creating wireless links between INSTEON devices, create a cross-link if you want your devices to stay in sync. Here we show linking two keypad buttons to a switch and then linking the switch back to the keypad buttons so that locally controlling the switch updates status on both keypad buttons. While it's good to have some knowledge of how to manually create these links it is unnecessary if you run software such as HouseLinc. This software handles all the programming of your devices. INSTEON is a wireless home control technology that communicates over the home's electrical wiring as well as RF. For more information please visit


In this episode, I show how to set up and use the Insteon Hub which is the COOLEST Insteon device I've used so far!! All of my previous episodes focused on using the Keypad Dimmer to control other devices. The Insteon Hub is an intelligent controller that you can access individual devices or setup scenes. NOTE ABOUT "RESPONDER" VS. "BOTH" When setting up a scene, each device can be set as a "Responder" (the default), "Controller", or "Both". I incorrectly selected "Both" in this video because I had used that setting when playing with the Hub and my Keypad Dimmer. I'll go into detail in a future video, but here's why "Both" was wrong: When a lamp module is set in "Both" mode, that means the lamp module also acts as a controller - which means pressing the module's "on" button turns on the scene. There may be times when this behavior would be useful, but not for the scenes in this video. For more information: -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- You need to see this: "Ultimate Desk Setup" -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-
