    I wanted to bring this product idea back to the very top as current hardware revisions 2.1 continue to fail. There was development on a third party PLM from UDI several years ago and it was said this device was simply waiting for Smartlabs to offer the following.

    1. Sell the PLM chips to UDI.
    2. Allow them to flash the PLM chip if and when needed on site.

    Many years have since past and there has been no word from either Smartlabs or UDI regarding a International PLM which would allow others to enjoy the use of the ISY Series Controller.

    One has to beg to ask the question as to why?!?!

    From a business stand point offering a International and universal PLM which supports all regions of frequency / voltages would only help expand the reach and adoption of the Insteon hardware and platform. 2017 is fast approaching and I implore the powers that be to push forward and release a PLM that supports the above.

    If that isn't something that will be considered at least stop blocking UDI from offering the very same. I've watched Insteon being surpassed by so many other protocols of the likes of Z-Wave / ZigBee in terms of being adopted by every market segment. In my eyes Insteon continues to be the superior home automation protocol given its dual band attributes.

    But none of this matters because there isn't the same amount of hardware made available to all markets in the world. We all know certification takes time but there is no way it takes 3-4 years that's just impossible given the fact there are companies that do this very job to help companies obtain certification for those countries!

    Insteon offers so many great products to many of us in North America.

    Why would you limit your sales growth, potential, and adoption to such a small market segment?!?!

    Joe Dadda: Lets make 2017 the year Insteon leads the market in all aspects. Show everyone Insteon continues to innovate and offers the most value in terms of features, price, and options. Lastly, encourage Insteon product adoption by helping Universal Devices Inc (UDI) release their very own 2413S PLM in hopes of offering superior Home Automation control to world regions.

    Help those, who can help you . . .

    The ALL ON command has been deleted from currently shipping devices.

    Still no word on the formal release of the UDI's PLM as they are still waiting for Smartlabs to sell them the Insteon chips. They have also been waiting for Smartlabs to resolve the ALL ON / ALL OFF issue which a small population have been experiencing with the current hardware 2 PLM.

    Perhaps by 2015 years end??

    A International PLM is already being tested for our UK brothers in arms. Hang tight it should be released by years end or early 2015.

    I too would be in for a PLM pro but I also agree that is Insteon is going to stay (or go) mainstream the current PLM situation needs to be worked out. Over the years I have been willing to take various small firmware bugs in newer devices as par for the course. Still some do surprise me that they are out there. However this ALL ON business with the PLM in the last 2 years is way out of bounds.

    Tons of documentation here on mysetup if anyone needs it on the ALL ON problem with current PLMs
    Page 1 of 5 - Random All On Event - posted in Current Release, Betas, and Bug Reports: Today all of my insteon devices turned on simultaneously (including my garage door opening). I dont have any programs that include all of my devices so I am unsure what caused it. I would think it was something random but it happened a few weeks ago too. I have an ISY994 and am running 4.0.3. Has anyone else had this happen or have any thoughts?

    Yes, I just wanted to affirm that aspect though. There is absolutely no reason in 2014 that a device can not be field up gradable. This saves the company money and down time. Increases customer satisfaction because a unit does not have to be sent back or replaced just because there is a bug in the firmware.

    The famous ALL ON issue is a perfect example of this!

    I understand the company has gone back to old (existing) firmware where the ALL ON problem did not exist is being pushed back on to the market to solve this on going problem.

    You can turn off writes to battery powered devices, you cannot stop the PLM from receiving RF communications

    I thought it was possible to turn off RF with the ISY??

    Making the PLM send and receive signal levels adjustable would be fantastic.
