    Version 1015

    This version of the Insteon Hub firmware fixes an issue where, for some users, the Hub goes offline momentarily (Hub beeps and its front LED turns red). In addition, this update improves the overall stability of the Hub.

    Please reach out to us if you have any questions:
    support@insteon.com or 866-243-8022.


    Version 1014

    This version of the Insteon Hub firmware includes general bug fixes and stability improvements. We've also updated the behavior of the front LED such that it will not show red while polling device status and the beeper will not double-beep on a failed status (both were introduced in version 1013). This update is being released on Feb 27, 2018 and automatically installed although it may take a few days to propagate. 

    For those using Amazon Alexa to voice control their Insteon devices, we've released an update to the backend services that fixes an issue where Alexa reported a problem with devices talking to the Insteon Hub. This update was released last week. Should you continue experiencing issues, please contact us at support@insteon.com or 866-243-8022.


    Version 1013

    This version of the Insteon Hub firmware adds support for improved 3rd party integrations. This update is being released on Dec 18, 2017 and automatically installed although it may take a few days to propagate. 

    Please note: With this update the LED on the front of your Insteon Hub will frequently alternate between red and green. This is normal behavior. 

    PLM Version A3

    This version of the Insteon Hub PLM firmware fixes an issue that may cause link corruption during smart retries. This update was released on Dec 14, 2017 and automatically installed. 


    Version 1012

    This version of the Insteon Hub firmware makes efficiency improvements outlined below. This update is being released on May 18, 2017 and automatically installed although it may take a few days to propagate. This is part two of a two-part release to improve the overall speed of the Insteon ecosystem.  

     

    Changes:

    • Added the Smarthops feature to all direct messages. (Smarthops is a method of determining how many Insteon hops are needed to reach a device and then using that number for future communications. This optimizes signaling which results in faster responses to and from the hub. Previously Smarthops were only being done for group messages (scenes). We expect to see an average of 50ms to 200ms reduction in response time.)

    • Hub 2 now only sends 1 message (rather than constantly repeating a message) if a device had previously failed. This is particularly helpful where a device has been unplugged but not deleted from the app for whatever reason (off-season holiday lighting, testing devices, retiring an older device, etc.). If you have such a device, we recommend reinstalling it temporarily to remove it from the app. For those with such a device, the hub goes from taking 5 seconds attempting to reach the unplugged device to 200m. Example: For devices that were added over a year ago, the Hub would send as many as 45 messages even if the device was unplugged. Now, the Hub will only try once if it has determined the device is unplugged.

    • Timing between the Hub and the Insteon network has been optimized so that the Hub no longer has to use timeout delays resulting in a time savings and speeding up of the network.

    This update has been a few months in the making and is part of a larger effort to improve all aspects of our hub ecosystem.

    PLM Version A2

    This version of the Insteon Hub PLM firmware makes efficiency improvements to the way the hub sends Insteon direct commands. The result is faster response times when using the Insteon app or third-party integrations. This update was released on May 3, 2017 and automatically installed. This is part one of a two-part release to improve the overall speed of the Insteon ecosystem. The second part will be released in the next week or two and will be Hub Version 1012.
