- Does Not Work Properly with ISY Review by Joel
Does Not Work Properly with ISY
The device instructions in the box are completely wrong.
There are some better instructions here on the web. Followed these exactly and the unit links as described for manual linking but no matter what I do it cannot be seen by the ISY.
Called tech support twice and they really do not have any idea how any of this works with ISY. The first technician was completely clueless but the second call I spoke to someone that basically told me they do not know how or if it works with the ISY.
I tried the forums and some people responded with ideas but they did not help either.
Smarthome Insteon products are pretty good but their technical support is terrible so you are basically on your own.

- Worked great for about 2 weeks Review by roriol
Worked great for about 2 weeks
I bought two of these. One works fine, the other worked fine for two weeks then died. I tried 3 different batteries, all new, none worked. Can't put in into link mode. It's just dead dead dead.

- Heartbeat Included - Excellent upgrade Review by Patrick
Heartbeat Included - Excellent upgrade
I received four of these new units and wanted to share my thoughts about them. I was very fortunate to find these units did not in fact lose the jumper to allow dual mode as mentioned by others.
This can be explained by the fact these units were older stock units with hardware Rev 1.9, produced on 3514. The ISY indicates the firmware which includes the heartbeat function as v.40
This new addition of the heartbeat node is most welcomed and excellent to see. Having the heartbeat node allows the person to know if the placement of the unit is within RF range and if the battery is still operational.
The inclusion of the the external set / program button is most excellent. This is another great Insteon update to an existing product line.
I have written the above review for the benefit of others as Smarthome / Smartlabs has been absolutely terrible in their communications to the customer base about changes to the product line.
In 2015 your company needs to do a lot better in terms of updating the users manual and listing the change logs of features or deprecation of features from a product.
Having a customer purchase a item only to find out a specific feature has been removed / omitted is NOT being customer focused!
Lastly, your engineers need to relay this same information to the Tech Support people because they are getting bombed each day by customers telling them things they should already know!
But don't because none of you talk to each other.

- Disappears in ISY Review by Mark
Disappears in ISY
Every time I reboot the ISY, I lose the connection to my open/close sensors. I have to remove them from ISY and re-add them.
Otherwise, their function works like advertised.

- Missing Features Review by Charles
The jumper is no longer part of this unit and the manuals are completely irrelevant. This item can no longer operate two separate functions and will ONLY turn on a scene when the door is opened and off when it closes. If you want it to activate a scene when you open the door and not immediately turn off when the door closes, you are out of luck. Bad update and incorrect unstructions, not sure what they're thinking...
Smarthome response: We're sorry that the latest version no longer supports two separate functions via the jumper. The Insteon engineers did indicate that the functionality is still there but software selectable only. The latest manual will get posted shortly. Sorry for the inconvenience.

- Instructions WRONG Review by Steve T
Instructions are completely wrong. Everything from pairing to default behavior. No jumper included. Called Tech Support...closed today. Finally got it paired, but don't like the way it's working; I need the jumper.

Great Door sensor, but try the hidden door sensor first. No low battery for this unit.

Review of 2843-222
Easily installed, just think through the location beforehand. Orientation of the magnet isn't as critical as might be expected: I have two where the window/door type dictated rotating the magnet by 90 degrees on the long axis to make installation possible. Just test fit until you're sure the mounting positions will function reliably before attaching permanently. Functions properly and is supported via UDI's ISY series controllers. I gave four stars only because I don't know battery life, yet.

Review of 2843-222
generally working fine, but I cannot get one of them to stop sending alerts. I cleared out the phone number but I still get a text alert. Also the range seems to be an issue and I have a hub and extender.
