    switching the keypad button vs responder

    Do I have an issue in my setup or an issue in my thinking (ID 10 T error)
    Just trying the Insteon plugin for the first time. I have an 8 button keypad (2334-2xx series) that has the buttons linked to outlets that are used to turn on lights on my deck. When I press a button, it works correctly.
    When I tell HS to turn on a button on the keypad, the responder (outlet) doesn't respond. I can turn on the outlet correctly in HS.
    I was going to have HS turn on the button which would save having a cross link to turn on the light on the keypad when the outlet is selected on. Even wondering if that would work now.
    Does turning the button on in HS only select the Button's LED, not any of the controlling functions?

    As I found out to my great distress....that is correct. You're basically just turning on a light behind a button. Physically pressing the button is what sends an ON or OFF to the associated device.

      your scenario is not directly supported in the insteon protocol; unfortunately

      i have built a a workaround in the plugin.

      enable the 'sync linked responders' on the kpl within the plugin, and then the outlet will turn on when you turn on the kpl from hs.

          Solved - I was also not linking them properly at the bottom of the HS configuration page. This plugin is working GREAT. Thanks - just purchased.
