Vera's insteon support is limited and only one way. So when performing an action on the keypad will not inform Vera right away. Vera would have to poll the device to get the status. Have a look here at the following link. A user of this forum has done work to make insteon work better with vera.

This is something only MCV can answer. But since the heart of vera is zwave, I have a feeling that zwave will have a higher priority than insteon. The link I have provided you, it looks like fba has done some great work. If you are seeking better support for insteon, I would give his insteon plugin a shot.
