Hi - I've been using Insteon + ISY for several years. Most of my switches and dimmers are 3+ years old, version 6.2.
Where is a list of revisions to current version - and what is current version?
I assume the FW is not updatable?
One reason I am asking is that I am updating a number of can light bulbs from incandescent to LED. The one LED I tested (Ecosmart from HomeDepot) is working, but I want a 3000K bulb and I am looking at a Sunco product on Amazon.
I have never seen a publicly released list of firmware or hardware revisions in modules.
You are correct the firmware is not a field upgrade. The modules do have a programming connector in them. Requires a compatible programmer for the micro controller being used and the firmware source file. That Smarthome has never released to end users.
Upgrading the firmware would probably not change the compatibility of a particular LED bulb. That would be more a hardware design of the module and LED Bulbs electronics. So would a later hardware version work better. Hard to say.
Many get a sample of the bulb they want to use and see if it worked with the module they wanted to use.
The latest users manual I have is for a hardware revision of 7+.
Right now the Smarthome sales page says for the 2477D. Product is Unavailable. Not sure if that is a bad sign.
In regards to releasing what fixes are in, they are simply switches..they turn on, off, and/or dim. Unless something drastically changed such as going from single band to dual band, nothing in their updates are worth swapping out for. They are probably out of stock on the 2477d. For some reason, they switched from saying out of stock to unavailable. To me that sends the wrong message as it leads to confusion.
