Insteon Scenes... ControlLinc
#1
So I'd like a control linc to talk with CQC to perform and trigger various events. I inserted the ID of the ControlLinc in the DEVICES.TXT file. I then linked the controllinc to the PLM directly. At this point, there was no scene file bound to my insteon driver instance. I set logging to high and checked the log after pressing button #1. It showed a response.

Then I setup a trigger to turn on system wide ventilation on the RCS zoning panel. Very neat. I then got to thinking about how to access the remaining 4 buttons on the Insteon ControlLinc. I had read somewhere that a scene was required.

Can someone shed some light on how this is accomplished?

Here is a snippet of the log displaying the control linc talking to the PLM after inserting a scene file. I'm not sure how to access the Insteon1.testlinc Group Instance? Any ideas? Thanks!!!

Does anyone use Insteon with CQC? Does anyone know how to address scenes? What about KeypadLinc buttons that are not hooked to a load?

I am using Insteon w/ CQC and working good for me. I had the same question about the keypad. Check out the link to find the answer.
