    Use Events or Group to contorl multiple devices?

    Do you guys use Events or Group in Insteon plug-in to control multiple devices?

    I created an event in HS3 to turn on multiple Insteon devices when a button is pressed.

    for example, I have a 6 button keypad at the main entry door, i want to use the "A" button to turn ON all the lights at downstairs, there are 4 devices.

    but only 2 of the 4 responded every time.

    I can't figure out why it's doing this. the other 2 that didn't respond are LOAD switches, default on level set to 100%, and "sync linked devices" checked.

    also because it's a 6 button, how do you program it so both ON and OFF buttons can control the same group of devices?

    use an insteon group (in the plugin) to control multiple devices with a single press from the controller device which you can define as part of the group

    then the controllers on/off btns will control the devices in the group
