How many INSTEON devices can be defined for an INSTEON HUB 2245-222? The specs say it supports 992 links. Is that 992 different INSTEON devices? Thanks.

They recommend no more than about 100 devices using the Insteon Hub. More than that and you really ought to use an ISY.

I doubt it. Most modules will have more than one link.
I have eleven Insteon Modules and the PLM for my ISY994i has sixty six links in it. Link for each scene and program they are in.

As mentioned earlier, 100 devices (give or take) would be your max. They go by link count since different devices and scenes can cause links to add up.

For example, keypads will use more links automatically than a switchlinc due to the nature of the device. The number of scenes play a part in it as well.

There must not be hard limits because I had never heard of a device limit and have accumulated 165 devices running on a hub 2 without any issues including keypads and light switches throughout the house along with just about every other module available with 68 scenes. I imagine the many leak sensors, window and Door sensors don't use a lot of computing power…

There is no hard limit simply due to the differences between devices. That's why they claim a link limit and not devices itself. Any combination of devices and scenes can either allow a great number of devices or a small number of devices.
