I mentioned that the Input sends a Scene/Group message. The internal reference material will refer to the messages as Group messages. Scene is a term Smarthome uses in its external end user material. Scene and Group refer to the same thing with Group being used in all the SmartLabs reference material.

A Group protocol sequence is made of a

Group Broadcast message that is received by all linked responders. This message allows all responders to react simultaneously. This is a Group Broadcast message

1 : 11 0250 1F243F 00000A CB1100

0250 inbound message to PLM
1F243F Insteon address of device sending message
00000A is the Group number of the Input. ISY assigns Group numbers to Inputs starting with 09. The 0A indicates Input2 is sending the message
CB flags and hop counts – Cx is flag bits that indicate a Group Broadcast.
11 On command in cmd1
00 cmd2 NA

The Group Broadcast is not sent to any specific device so there is no ACK associated with it.

The next message in a Group protocol sequence is a Group Cleanup Direct. One of these is sent to each linked responder.

1 : 11 0250 1F243F 1F24D7 41010D

0250 inbound message to PLM
1F243F Insteon address of device sending message
1F24D7 is PLM address
41 flags and hop counts – 4x flag bits that indicate a Group Cleanup Direct
11 On command
0D Group number of Input – with an ISY this would be Input 5

Assign a snapshot is a feature that allows a combination (snapshot) of EZIO8SA relays to be turned On/Off with a single On command. The ISY does not support this feature
