Switch from Insteon Hub to UD Polisy


Recommended Posts

I have a home filled with Alexas and Insteon Devices and an Insteon Hub that keeps breaking.  I also have a UD Polisy and and Insteon USB Modem and would like to start controlling things with the Polisy.  I have no idea where to start and what to do.  Can anyone give me a quick list of what SW/HW I need and how to go about it or tell me where to go to find it?  THANKS - Bruce

Start here:

And use this for a programing guide once you are up and running:

Another suggestion is to consider your insteon network by function and/or room. Start with some simple function like a 3 way switch in a room...

  • Remove the devices from the insteon hub
  • Factory reset them
  • Add them to the polisy
  • Set up programs if necessary
  • Pick another room or function and move at a pace that you can support

Another way to say it is

  • Do not attempt an "big bang" conversion
  • Tempting as it is, do not use the admin console function to crawl and discover your existing insteon network.. it's better to proceed at a pace you can manage
