From the bottom up …

InsStdMsg – Group Broadcast – 1st message from pressing KPL button 1
Parms3-5 from Insteon device address 05:16:88
Parms6-8 to Insteon device address – on a Group Broadcast parm 8 is Group number
Parm 9 – Flag byte – Cx – first 4 bits indicate Group Broadcast message
Parm 10 – cmd1 value – 11 – On command
Parm 11 – cmd2 value – 00 – no meaning – sometimes Group number – depends on KPL version

InsStdMsg – Group Cleanup Direct – 2nd message from pressing KPL button 1
Parms3-5 from Insteon device address 05:16:88
Parms6-8 to Insteon device address – 06:4C:94
Parm 9 – Flag byte – 4x – first 4 bits indicate Group Cleanup Direct message
Parm 10 – cmd1 value – 11 – On command
Parm 11 – cmd2 value – 01 – Group number

SndIns – Direct Off message I presume from Macro being triggered
Parms3-5 to Insteon device address 05:16:88
Parm 6 – Flag byte – 0x – first 4 bits indicates Direct message
Parm 7 – cmd1 value – 13 – Off command
Parm 8 – cmd2 value – 00 – no meaning on Off command

Last message is ACK of Direct message which has been interpreted in previous post.

For the benefit of others who read this, NOT ALL KPLs will respond to a Direct command the way this KPL is. The normal way to control a KPL button, even button 1, is with a Group command sequence.

EDIT: corrected description of parm 11 of 2nd inbound message (from bottom up). Parm 11 (01) is the Group number representing KPL button 1 in this case.
