    Newbie question

    [FONT=Arial][COLOR=black]Newbie question (the Insteon system in my house was installed by previous owner, 10 years or more ago. There is no hub and no controller)[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=black]Hall light number 1: used to be controlled by a button in one of two 8-button keypads. The button in one of the keypads doesn’t turn the light on/off anymore. Other buttons in that keypad still work. Is there a way to link the button still on the other keypad to the non-working button (or to an unused button)?[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=black]Hall light number 2: used to be controlled by a button in an 8-button keypad and also by an (old, no LEDs on the side) Insteon wall switch. Just like the previous issue, the keypad button doesn’t turn the light on/off anymore. Other buttons in that keypad still work. After watching some youtube videos I tried to link the Insteon wall switch to a button in the keypad. Not only that I failed to link, but I disabled (reset?) the wall switch and now that light cannot be operated AT ALL (not by the keypad and not by the wall switch). Any advice?[/COLOR][/FONT]

    Can you find the model numbers of the Insteon Devices? Switches are usually on a sticker on the front side of the switch.
    Than you can find the full users manuals for the models you have.
    Are they a dimmer type or On Off relay type switch? The early 2457S wall switches had a different method to reset them. As they had no Air Gap switch to remove the power to the switch when fully pulled out.
