I am currently working on greatly improving the support for the ISY994 Insteon controller in Home Assistant. In 0.60, my improvements to leak and door sensors (aka, they work!) went out, and now I am working on a fairly large refactor of the ISY994 component to aid in further development.
The biggest problem with working with the ISY994 is that it supports an enormous number of devices, many of them discontinued. Even more when we start considering the Z-Wave support, which I don’t use. And then there are an infinite number of potential devices available with the new Node Server support in the 5.0 firmware.
So I would like to use this thread to hear from other ISY994 users. There are two things I would love:
- Tell me about how the ISY994 integration works for you, good or bad. What’s missing? What’s working well? What do you like or dislike about it?
- It would really help me if you would be willing to dump your
nodesendpoint for me, so I can see what systems with other devices look like. To get this, open
http://isy/rest/nodesand save it out to a file and attach it here (depending on your network you may need to change
isyto your isy’s IP address, but that URL works by default.) You should double-check that it doesn’t contain any sensitive information. If you don’t want to post it publicly and are willing to email it, you can send it to [email protected]
At the end of all this, I want the ISY994 component to be one of the best possible choices for new people to use if they are setting up whole-house lighting control that is never required to phone home to a cloud service.
