ELK FAQs

  • You need ELK M1 Gold + ELK M1 XEP.
  • Make sure you enable the non-secure port for your ELK (2101) and use it in ISY.
  • If you have more than 256 nodes/scenes, then you are going to run out of room in ELK.
  • Please make sure not to use any special characters in the name of your devices.
  • Please use the latest Elk firmware (5.1.14), as previous firmware versions have been known to cause issues.
  • Please check all the Opt flags for all your INSTEON imported devices. This is done in ELK RP|Lighting panel. If you do not have these flags set, you will experience lights intermittently turning on/off by themselves.
  • To make secondary switches and keypad buttons correspond to a device status:
    • Create a scene with all the responders. Do not include the load device.
    • Create a program that controls that scene in response to changes in the load device.
