  • Elk ESM1 Signal Meter & Insteon

    Does the ESM1 only work for X-10 devices, or can it also analyze Insteon signal strengths? I'm putting a bunch of unused X-10 stuff on eBay, and am slowly swapping all my remaining X-10 over to Insteon or other protocols. If the ESM1 can be used for Insteon I'll hang on to it, otherwise off it goes....

    this article indicates you can use the ESM1 to measure insteon signals: https://www.laser.com/dhouston/insteon.html

    the meter seems to have a +/-10% range so from 120kHz it should be able to see insteon signals at 131.65kHz

      Thanks Mark, I'll hang on to it for now.

        Now that I've got the plugin squared away I was able to check this out, measures both signals just fine. Going to use it to check all my room outlets before deploying my new Insteon gear.

          I keep one on top of my ISY 994 to confirm traffic when a command is executed. Works fine for Insteon signals,
