Great news for Insteon Hubitat users! A DTH from the other hub has now been ported by @cwwilson08 for direct HTTP control of Insteon dimmer modules, lightbulbs, switches and relays. No Node.js server is required!
This Hubitat driver takes advantage of the Insteon PLM built into their hubs, allowing direct control via HTTP GET. This driver supports the internal Ramp Rate of the device during ON/OFF and dimming operations. Lights will transition smoothly at their pre-defined ramp-rates in all cases, giving the nice appearance we've come to expect from Insteon.
Ramp Rate - The built-in Ramp Rates are supported for individual devices, but user definable Ramp Rates are not supported with the Insteon PLM. Therefore, the Fade box in the driver does not serve any purpose and may be left blank.
Fast ON/OFF- User selectable support for Insteon Fast ON/OFF to allow insteon dimmers to turn on or off in 0.1 second. This is useful for using dimmers, dimmer modules and dimmable outlets to turn on devices quickly, such as electronic that would otherwise be damaged by a slow ramp up and down or compact florescent lights that might be damaged by a slow ramp up or down of the dimmer circuit.
Refresh - The built in refresh function has been removed due to issues with trying to refresh more than one driver. Even if the refresh times are staggered among the drivers, the refresh became erratic and unreliable. If you must have refresh, use Rule Machine to creates a periodic triggered rule and do not refresh more than one device. Changes to the driver will update instantly, but changes at the devices outside of Hubitat, such as dimmer adjustment, Micro Module latching or momentary modes, or response to Insteon Load Sensing feature found in LampLinc plug-in modules and wall outlets will not be updated in Hubitat unless refresh is used.
If you require refresh for more than one Insteon device, the HTTP Insteon switch/dimmer driver for use with Express Server is recommended. The built-in refresh setting for that driver has also been removed due to issues, but unlike the direct driver, the HTTP driver for Express Server can use Rule Machine to refresh multiple devices at once without issue.
- Built-in refresh removed due to issues when trying to use multiple Insteon direct drivers with refresh enabled.
New code adds user definable refreshed rates within the driver settings page. NOTE: Driver may be set to "No Selection" for refresh rate and RM used instead for custom refresh rates.
Added Fast ON/OFF enable and disable option.
