It doesn't do what it claims
I've been trying to make the Indigo and Insteon system work since 2006. Every one of my Insteon devides has failed at least once, and some are on their 4th failure. For each failure, you have to delete the failed device and all the links that are created in each and every other Insteon device, which can get amazingly tedious with more than a couple devices.
When you delete a device in Indigo, you get a popup message that this will delete all links associated with the device as well. Not true. All the links stay there and now become non-editable "unknown devices" that interfere with proper operation. Then, the only way to remove those links is to do a factory reset of each and every Insteon device that includes those links.
And just in case this isn't enough to discourage you from using this technology, I bought a new lamp dimmer to replace yet another failed one, and got the error message that I now have to pay to upgrade my version of Indigo. After doing so, I then got another error message that I had to upgrade my hardware as well, so it's still not working.
This software and hardware remains bug-ridden and sloppy and extremely time-consuming. Really tired of giving you people the benefit of the doubt, because you just don't live up to any of the claims you make for ease of use or functionality. Watch your back, because your competitors will quickly trample you in this day and age.
