I'm actually still using the X10 controller with the X10 to Insteon Translator which is working pretty well for me. Of course, an Insteon Controller with more buttons would be my first choice. While I haven't tried it yet, I think I read something about being able to control more than one device by tapping On or OFF two or three times. Download the expanded manual from their site for more info.
Mea Culpeper. I have erred again. But I'll bet a lot of Insteon users
*wish* that it folded out to reveal the same spread of buttons its X-10 twin sports. Only 5 buttons? What a useless piece of junk for a box as big as my answering machine! :-) No, that's not true. The Control-Linc is bigger by far!
looks as if all the buttons on the bottom lid are accessible via holes cut in the lid. I assume they have different functions when the lid is open and the cover switch state changes. The X-10 controller, on the other hand, reveals over 30 more hidden buttons when you flip the lid in addition to the ones accessible through the closed lid. That's what I was trying to say, albeit somewhat clumsily.
Yes, it's a shame. Plus, there are no wireless options at this time.
Actually, what I'm doing is using the regular X-10 RF wireless "Palm Pad" remotes. I use a W800 reciever to grab the signal and feed it directly into my computer where HomeSeer then sends out the Insteon command of my choice. The W800 works GREAT at receiving all X-10 commands, and this way no X-10 signals are sent through my powerlines to interfere with Insteon.
