* Dusk/Dawn requires a change to persist for 3.5 minutes before transmitting a command.
** Dusk (dark) is represented by On.
* When the On-Only Mode jumper is set the motion sensor will send an On when there is new activity '''only after''' there is no activity for the duration of the timeout period plus ~ 2-4 seconds.
** This is the same behavior as when the motion sensor sends an Off.

TriggerLinc Linking

The Insteon TriggerLinc cannot be linked using Auto Discover.

  • Menu - Link Management/New INSTEON device
  • Enter the address.
    • The TriggerLinc address is on a sticker on the back of the unit.
  • Select the TriggerLinc from the drop down list labeled "Device Type". It's the 2nd from last device, at the time of this writing.
Select TriggerLinc from the list
  • Click Ok.
  • Press and Hold the Set button for 5 seconds to put the TriggerLinc in linking mode as per the requester. The Set button is located near the battery.
Press and Hold the Set button for 5 seconds
  • Click OK.
  • Wait while the ISY initializes communications with the TriggerLinc.

TriggerLinc Modes

Once added to the ISY, you will see two nodes for the TriggerLinc - one with "-Opened" appended to the device name, and another with "-Closed" appended to the device name.

By default, the TriggerLinc will send an ON command to the "-Opened" node when the sensor is opened, and an OFF command to the "-Opened" node when the sensor is closed. In its default mode, the "-Closed" node can be ignored.

When the TriggerLinc is in "Multi-Scene" mode (see the TriggerLinc documentation), the TriggerLinc will send an ON command to the "-Opened" node when the sensor is opened, and an ON command to the "-Closed" node when the sensor is closed. It will never send an OFF command to either node.

When using the TriggerLinc in "Multi-Scene" mode within ISY programs, be sure to use CONTROL in conditions and not STATUS.

TriggerLinc FAQs

  • To access the TriggerLinc, one or more Access Points must be installed.
    • Tip: Plug an Access Point into the PLM for positive results.
  • The TriggerLinc must be “awake” to hear messages.
    • Tip: Put the TriggerLinc into linking mode to keep it awake for 4 minutes (hold set button for 5 seconds).
  • A command is only sent when there is a change in sensor state (open or closed).
    • Do not expect to see a status until there has been a change.
