I have a dead hub; no power, no lights,I've confirmed the outlet is good. Tried a factory reset. It's dead. I have a new one and want to set it up and re-install my devices, but there is no customer service available to help today. Any one know how I can delete the old Hub and install the new one without going through customer service, or setting up a different account?

Late... but this has to be done through Insteon if the Hub unit is dead.

What’s suspicious? Did you find it in the library, bludgeoned to death, next to a candleholder, in the hands of Colonel Mustard?

Ask Insteon customer service about hub repair, no need for new account or reprogramming. Plugged in the repaired hub and everything worked!

Insteon should allow a new HUB to clone the old Insteon ID and download all the code from the cloud. In the mean time the ISY is a great solution which allows the replacement of the ISY or the PLM. I have had PLM failures but never an ISY failure.

And once you get your new hub, all your devices will still hold a link to the old hub address. A net cleanup option would be a wonderful capability. dead links, orphan links, etc, etc. Does ISY have that?
