    sounds like a good plan

    if you enable the 'process ACKs" feature on the advanced tab of the plugin, hs should see the transaction

    not really; other than being able to place the hub anywhere in your house that has a network drop and outlet. With the PLM, you must be able to run a line from the PLM to the hs server. Some users like to be able to use the insteon app in case homeseer is down. But if you want to use the insteon app, you must maintain that separately from homeseer. The plugin does not interact with anything the insteon app does to the Hub.

    Also, the plm is more responsive to changes on the insteon network than the hub

    Hub vs PLM

    Is there an advantage to using an Insteon Hub over a PLM?
