Insteon/X10
« on: May 19, 2015, 10:48:50 am »
Hello,
I have a ton of old X10 devices from before I switched to Zwave. Can I use these lamp modules/appliance switches with my Vera Edge? I understand I need an Insteon modem? Do I need to install a plugin? Any help or references to possible setup scenarios would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,Derek

The Smarthome 2413U PowerLinc Modem INSTEON Dual-Band USB Interface will work with Vera natively.  Just plug it in to the USB port.

However, it has very limited functionality.  It is 'send only' with no X10 line monitoring (receive) so no knowledge of device status other than commands it initiates.  Also, no X10 RF support for remotes or sensors.  X10 powerline send only.  But it works.
