If I double tap a switch to activate the quick On/Off, does it send a different Insteon message than just a single tap?

Yes. A quick double-tap sends a Fast On that overrides the ramp rate and dim level in the scene, turning responders on 100% instantly.

I have to use the double tap to turn on a light. I have the controller remote 8 scene, I already programmed 2 plug in modules to the remote, both of them works great with the dim light thing.

But when I try to set a third plug in, to a letter c or d in my control, when I click the button to ON, nothing happens, I have to double tap to turn on and I donít like that!

How can I change that? I just want to click once to turn on and one to turn off. No double tap.

Help me!

If you are doing manual linking with the set buttons and not through a controller. Like a HUB or ISY994i.
Make sure when you link them. The module linked to the button. Is ON or at the dim level you want the button to do. As you can link a remote On button to turn Off a module. A double tap sends a Fast On Fast Off as pointed out. Bypassing the level it was linked with.

The Remote control doesn't know if a different device changed the state of the load. If the load was turned on using to remote and later turned on using a different device, the remote is still in the On mode. A single tap will set the button to off, a second tat is needed to turn the load back on.

To make the remote aware of what other devices do would require that the battery be energized 24/7, greatly decreasing the time between charges, nearly daily.
