Thanks again PeteK, Check your PM..
Well, an update re: EZBridge by Simplehomenet...
I have all the docs for said unit, been testing pretty heavily.. heres the sticker..
It seems as their docs are not keeping up with their firmware updates... most of the commands in the docs aren't quite correct.. either the command structure is wrong, or the response structure is wrong, or the command simply doesn't work!
That said, The device is workable. For the most part, they succeeded with the Insteon to IP/X10 Bridge.. <if you know what I mean>
Some commands I have learned to stay away from... others, I have learned workarounds... so I should be ok.
The PLM on the other hand, seems VERY well documented from Smarthome.. Nevertheless, I still don't have all the documentation I need, or would like...
Last night I put my second order in for another batch of Insteon products.. Top on my list are the developers package (that comes with a USB PLC), the developer's hardware package (isolated), and a whackload of more keypadlinc's, switchlinc's, Lamplinc's, Appliancelinc's, etc.. (you get the idea lol)
so, by the time I get my fiire equipment, there shouldn't be a light in the house that's not controlled via insteon...
BTW, did I tell you how much I LOVE this technology?? 1000% better than the old X10... I was going to "migrate" away from my old 1-way X10 stuff.. then I saw how well the insteon worked... That plan was dropped.
So, by Friday, I should have that order, and I will also have a PLC to play with.
My other computer is your windows box.
