Garrett,

I presently have some plug-in dimmers, which I am hoping will be recognized given your system's existing support for dimmers, and the IOLinc garage door sensor/switch. I also hope to be able to run some of the Insteon PIR sensors and maybe a few water sensors.

If any of these are of interest to you, I would kick in a donation.

SmartHome.com has 20% off everything. Ends today (Cyber Monday).
It is on their main page, with a couple exceptions.
Code is: EBF20

I am working on support for IOLincs.

Just a heads up to Garrett (and all),

I have updated to the latest 4.1.1 (although, I guess it isn't officially released yet!)

I have the Z-Wave module for my ISY.  I have started updating the code for Z-Wave items.  Currently, everything looks like a binary switch or lock (no dimming of lights).  I have binary lights working, and dimmers (as binary on/off).  No locks yet.

It is a little odd, since so far, all device are Category 4, with different subcats (relays=16, dimmers=17, locks=64).  This sort of goes against the Insteon categories, but for now, I am going with it.

I will wait to post any updates until more is worked out tonight/tomorrow (regarding the beta/untested status).

I plan on updating my ISY in the next day or two. I was going to update it yesterday, but ended up getting distracted with other projects around the house.

I would like to add more support for devices, but my insteon gear is not very diverse. Hopefully supporting more devices with my current code is not too difficult. I tried my best to make things simple.

Garrett,

The limitations are not due to your code.  In fact, it was easy to get the Z-Wave items detected.

It seems to be a limitation of the current ISY firmware/UI?at least for my Leviton dimmers.  I do not have any GE dimmers installed any more, so I can't test if those are working any better.

Also, the REST API for locks hasn't been published, so I haven't worked on those at all.

Maybe we should get a project page going in code.mios.com to use for committing changes via git?

I haven't used code.mios.com, but I can try.  I'll try not to goof up like I did with Altsteon in the beginning.

I just got locks working, sort of.  The status is reflected in Vera, but commands still don't work (until they publish the REST API call for locks).

I would post over on the UD forum to ask what the api calls are for the z-wave locks. Better yet, email UD support. They are very fast at responding and very helpful.

PurdueGuy,

Here is the project for the ISY plugin over at code.mios.com: Universal Devices ISY Plugin

In order to write to the git repository you'll need to create an account over on code.mios.com. You'll need to contect mcv.andrei to have him create an account for you there. Once an account is created, let me know via pm your username and I'll add you to the project. The git repo path is located here:

Public   
http://code.mios.com/git_public/mios/universal_devices_isy_plugin.git
Public 2   
git://code.mios.com/mios/universal_devices_isy_plugin.git

I have the ISY controller plugin working. One Lamplinc setup for testing seems to be responding correctly. Hopefully, I can try some more devices tomorrow.

Jacob, I will be glad to test the IOLinc functionality whenever ready. Do I need to collect the files from the code.mios.com repository?

I don't have access to the repository yet, and I won't be home until later this evening.
If I have access then, I can upload, otherwise I can post them here.

I have an IOLinc, I just don't have a sensor hooked up to it. I can test that prior to release.

No rush. Either method is fine.
