My HE hub is on the way, came from ST, Really like the idea of run automation locally. Anyway, I have quite a few insteon devices ( those device has high WSF (wife satisfaction factor:) ) and like to integrate with HE locally. I integrated insteon hub with ST locally before, but find the (local) API of insteon hub is slow, unreliable. I am thinking about the following approach, is this right approach to HE?
- CMD: HE->(insteon bridge)->PLM(USB/serial, not hub2245)
- Status: PLM->(insteon bridge)->HE(port 39501)
- The insteon bridge is a daemon (light http server receiving command from HE, http client post status to HE, and a device driver for PLM) running on either RPi or my wireless router (running openwrt) (any other recommendation?)
Any suggestion or feedback is highly appreciated!
