Currently I have Indigo on my Mac with a 2413U modem. I want to replace the Mac with a hub and Alexa to control my stuff.

The question is about my 8 button dimmers. Will I still be able to have different scenes controlled by different buttons on the dimmers?

Yes with the Hub 2 (2245-222). No with the Hub Pro (2243-222). But the Hub 2 app runs only on iOS, Android or Windows.

No problem, you can now control both Insteon devices and scenes with the 2245 and Alexa. Those Insteon scenes can include secondary keypad buttons as both controllers and responders.

Be aware the 2245 does not offer any kind of conditional functionality like you enjoy currently with Indigo.
