    This item did not work with my existing software. I wish to return it for a refund. How do I proceed?

    This is being phased out. Good call. They work well for a couple of months and then begin to work intermittently. At the one year point, full daily resets become necessary. I replaced this with an ISY and never looked back.

    Review of 2414u

    The 2414U is being phased out. It has had its problems but was a good stop-gap for a number of years. This does have internal memory and can function as a standalone controller, unplugged from a computer if you have soft are like indigo that can upload the program information to it. I had a failure of one of these and that pushed me into the ISY which is far superior. This is a great entry-level controller but anyone thinking about it should look at the ISY and make that jump now that this is going away.

    Review of 2414u

    I just ordered my THIRD 2414U. The latest one died after 14 months. These do work and do what they are advertised to do but after a year, they have to be replaced. They just can't make it beyond that. Out of box and configured, one will work flawlessly for a couple of months, then fail. A total restore will get another solid month out of it, then failures are spotty. It can work for three weeks and have to be reset once a week. When it has to be reset multiple times per week, it's time to toss it and stick in a new one. I wish these were better quality!

    Review of 2414u

    As part of a converstion from X-1o to INSTEON, I had to change from a 1132CU to the 2414U. Now all my a/o works as it should. But, now my computer can not be allowed to sleep. The 2414U does not have any memory. Now the room where my computer is gets warmer. More AC.

    Would not send any signals properly. Insteon signals could go on for hours and X10 signals worked only once in a while (not often).

    Review of 2414u

    Works great to control X10 using Bob Pwwer's iLinks command line software with a bunch of modifications since it was geared more to Insteon than X10 or use http://www.linuxha.com/athome/common/iplcd/iplc_usb_pl.gz change port to hidraw0. In both cases made modifications to use /dev/hidraw0. Now using scripts to control X10 devices on Pogoplug with schedules and sensor activation. Actually works same or better than my PSC05/Arduino Uno combo although it is easier to send than receive commands actually after I figured it out, it was easy. Probably good to have developer's documentation.
