I have a lot of Insteon and since they stopped supporting/enhancing houselinc I have been hurting.
It is still early but I think I found a potential platform.
Using Insteon Hub 2014 and Stringify for logic.
I now just use OH 1.8.3 without logging or persistence (because these activities were frying my uSD cards on rpi).
I no longer use OH logic - it’s all either direct links or Stringify for conditional stuff.
I no longer use OH persistence and instead I log everything to “the cloud” (I have access to free, excellent cloud history and reporting through my employer).
I no longer use OH for user interface - I just use the Insteon app or Alexa.
So what do I use OH 1.8.3 for?
Mapping everything between binding platforms, including Insteon, MyQ Garage Door, Ecobee Thermostat, & MQTT (that’s how I historize to “the cloud”).
It really is just sitting int he background unifying all my disparate platforms.
I was loosing too much time learning OH scripting, losing uSD cards to rpi, bouncing back and forth between OH1.8 & OH2.
I went back to OH 1.8.3 because it seemed like the stable path.
Now I just have an items file - nothing in rules, scripts, persistance, etc.
I still use Insteon Terminal for testing.
You other insteon guys might want to look at stringify and/or Amazon Echo if you haven’t yet.
I’ve only had it a couple weeks and just moved back to OH1.8.3 in this limited fashion since last weekend but my OH administration might be just adding new stuff I buy to my.items.
Time will tell but I’m feeling like I’m going to have a lot less hassle.
