Working on that right now...
I don't have an actual model number, but I'm implementing the IO8SA (insteon I/O board) which has all kinds of inputs/outputs..
including, Digital ins & Outs, Analog Ins, 1-wire bus, etc etc etc..

The only intuitive interface is the nipple.  After that it's all learned.
My other computer is your windows box.
I'm out of my mind.  Back in 5 minutes.
Q:  What's Red and smells like blue paint?

A:  Red Paint.

big problem with LMCE is not that it probably doesn't support many devices yet, but also support for showing those devices and controling them from Orbiter floorplans is currently very limited. I have my blinds supported in HW way, but I cannot get them to be properly shown and controlable on floorplan... :-( .....


Thanks in advance,
