"Cannot determine Insteon Engine"


Recommended Posts


when trying to add to isy an old original Remotelinc (old type but never been used) I get the error message "Cannot determine Insteon Engine" and it does not add.  any ideas?




Assuming you have good RF coupling from any dual band device. Take the Remote Linc as far away from the 2413s PLM and try again as this issue has been well documented.

I had to move my original RemoteLincs to the other end of the house near an Access Point. To program or change things.

So the 2413S PLM could not receive the Insteon RF signals from the Remotelinc and the Access Point had to reach the PLM by power line commands.

I removed my signalinc (per Michel in private email) and moved the old remotelinc far away from the PLM near a dual ban lamplinc and now all programed good.  Man who would have known!  Very weird.  Is everyone moving away from the old remotelincs?

Thanks for your help!
