For the big one, yeah, the unit will only recognize a change in status if it commands it. This is a bug in Smarthome’s PLM. All units that use a PLM can only monitor traffic that it directly sends (or is sent to it). We are working extremely hard with Smarthome to resolve this issue. It is supposed to be able to monitor all Insteon network traffic.
The unit should be responding however to X10 macros, and Insteon macros that it commands (say, a timer for instance), so I will be looking into this.
Sorry about the password change, that is annoying of us – it will stay EZServe and Simplehomenet for the default from this point forward – including commercial.
