Hello Everyone,
I have an Insteon PLM and light dimmer successfully installed and functioning. Decided to get a Skylink Insteon Motion Sensor (2420M) in the mix. Followed the manual to ensure it is software controllable and linked to the PLM.

Was hoping it would get automatically detected. Since it was not detected, i added a "Motion Sensor" template manually and gave the Insteon address (14.BC.30) in the "Port/Channel Number" field. In the PLM logs i can see the address of sensor show up. On tripping the sensor there are a bunch of logs that scroll by.

On the core's on screen orbiter, under Pending Tasks i can see its downloading "General Info Plugin". After router reload the devices seems deleted from the core.

Any thoughts on this behavior? I did see a post from 2009 but there was no resolution mentioned other than contacting someone. I am attaching the PLM logs. Sensor address is 14.BC.30. Unfortunately I am not conversant with the reading the logs, hopefully will pick it up soon.

I'm curious if you figured this out. I'm still trying to make sense of Insteon, but I had a light switch that deleted itself. It only worked after I cross linked the devices (switch to PLM, then PLM to switch).

Hello twodogs,
I did try it on my 10.04 system which I haven't updated in a while. It had the same behavior. Waiting for the final release and will reinstall the system and test it out.

Regards,
Shiv
