I’m sure some have done it as it is real easy. You need to know the thermostat command set (available from code.insteon.net) and from our website. Then use the xml function to send direct commands to the thermostat as follows:
– To set the mode, issue cmd1=0x6B cmd2=yy (where yy is the mode you want)
– To read the temperarture, issue cmd1=0x6a cmd2=0 – the returned message will have the temperature X 2 in cmd2
– To set the cooling setpoint, issue cmd1=0x6c and cmd2=xx (where xx is the desired temperature X2)
– To set the heating setpoint, issue cmd1=0x6d and cmd2=yy (where xx is the desired temperature X2)
