View Full Version : Insteon G5 to G6 Migration

So I'm considering moving from G5 with Mike's Insteon Plugin to G6.
Currently I have a 2412S running the show, but would move to 2242-222 on G6 if I do this.
Is there any clear set of instructions on how to do such a migration?
My concern are things like bringing forward all the node naming and configurations and getting the 2242-222 configured with the nodes.

I have like 80x insteon nodes and really don't want to mess this up...my biggest concern is that if I don't like what I see, I'd fall back to G5.
Has anyone done a migration like this?

My other concern is "Who is maintaining G6 Insteon?"
Mike has always been very responsive and good at dealing with SH making weird updates to the protocol when they roll out a new device or firmware update...can I expect similar responsiveness under G6?

Thanks,
Jon

Well, Mike has a few years head start on that Girder 5 insteon plugin so expect it to be more comprehensive. Beyond that we do what we can it's a Promixis plugin.
