    Suggested settings when poor Insteon communication between the hub and devices?

    Are there any suggested settings to use when having poor Insteon communication between the hub and devices?

    Is there a suggested setting for retries?

    How about response timeout?

    Or Failed Poll Threshold or Failed Tx Threshold?

    I'm assuming Debounce Time (ms) is for physical switches.

    I can't provide great insight into those specific questions, but I can say from experience you would likely benefit greatly from determining the cause of the poor communication and rectifying that.

    My current settings are:

    Max Hops: 4
    Retries: 5
    Timeout: 3

      can you define poor performance?

      what do your stats look like? post a pic from the plugin Devices page

      do you see any errors in the hs log?

                the logged errors only occur when you try to install a plugin update and hs4 needs to be rebooted first. no worries there.

                the comm stats look okay

                you can run it on several devices at once and compare the results of other devices physically located near the one in question

                  According to the numbers the communication looks good, but I am having issues where I have to run an event multiple times to get all of the lights to respond.
                  My understanding is that unless I put the switches into the pairing mode and pair them to the hub they are only working singleband through the wiring. They're not doing the RF communication.

                  Most of the devices are spaced pretty far apart so I'm not sure how much RF communication would help if enabled, but I would imagine it could only help.

                  Is that correct?

                    This is not true. you just need to add the device via the plugin. insteon takes care of powerline and RF comm internally. you have no control over that.

                    post a pic of your event with the devices you are trying to control

                      Thank you! When the event runs the devices status indicator changes state but the device does not change state.

                      Does this tell you anything?

                        create a plugin Group to control all those devices at once. it more efficient on the network.

                          Thanks. Any reason why the device does not respond but its icon changes? It shows that it responded but it didn’t.

                          Would you suggest having the setting about “group command clean up” on or off?

                            Thank you sir! I went ahead and deleted all of my events that had multiple individual devices, and made new events that use a group.

                            At first I was having problems controlling devices but then I removed everybody from the group and added them all back and now it’s working perfectly.

                              group cleanup should be on by default. a device may not respond for several reasons: bad links, noise/comm issues, etc

                              please see the troubleshooting page (start at step 3). i need a detailed log of what is happening. there are instructions for posting the hs log
