I have a couple of questions on the MS II 2844-222 device:

1) What are the default device option settings for the device?
2) How can one manage the device options if one doesn't have a Insteon Hub?

So far as I can tell, the only features you can set manually are the 12 hour ignore motion feature, linking and unlinking. Everything else relies on software.

Hereís the full product manual: http://cache.insteon.com/documentation/2844-222-en.pdf

Thanks. Do you know what the device defaults are for:
- Motion countdown
- light sensitivity.
- on only mode.

Negative, I havenít installed one without an ISY or a Hub for setup.

Like Tfitzpatri8, I know only what is in the manual. While it is not for certain that these are the "default", I note that the values shown on the iPhone screenshots are 30sec, 25%, and "not set", respectively.

What oberkc posted are the correct default settings, which can be managed/changed, currently, only by an Insteon Hub.

Thanks guys. I guess my only option is to buy an Insteon Hub to manage the device options. I currently use an ISY and will continue to use it as my main controller, but will use the Hub to set device options but ISY would receive the on commands, etc to trigger events. Anything to watch for, be aware of with regards to having both a Hub and ISY controller on the same network?

Unless you are very familiar with the Insteon protocol and the way the ISY handles some things differently, it's not a good idea to use another Insteon manager, such as the Hub, concurrently with the ISY.

But, you can use the Hub to set parameters for any device that are not within the realm of the ISY and then add that device with the new parameters intact to the ISY.

You can then unplug the Hub and save it for a rainy day

I think the big thing is to understand that adding devices to the hub or to the ISY will create link records in the motion sensor. In your case, this will leave your system with link records that the ISY is not aware of and to a device that is no longer on your system (in both cases, the hub).

You should be fine if you use the hub first to set your parameters and, once set, add the motion sensor to the ISY (removing existing links). Unfortunately, making changes to the motion sensor after that would require re-adding to the hub, then likely restoring the device in the ISY.

Doable, yes. Just be aware of how the link records work.
