It's not that big of a deal right now, but I noticed that HouseLinc can not maintain the status of a device. For example, I turn my desk lamp on and it correctly sets the status to "On", but as soon as I move away from that device and come back to it the status has changed to "Unknown". Is this normal behavior?

That's normal behavior, and by design. HL gets and displays a particular device's status when you click the button to retrieve it.

Only the ISY attempts to track the current status of devices by monitoring the actions of all linked controllers, and even that status can be inaccurate if you activate a module using load sensing.
