TriggerLinc Linking

ISY firmware 2.7.4 or higher will support the TriggerLinc. 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".
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.

IMPORTANT: The ISY will NOT receive status updates to the "-Closed" node unless the TriggerLinc is in "Multi-Scene" mode AND the "-Closed" node is added to a scene.


TriggerLinc FAQs

  • To access the TriggerLinc, one or more Access Points must be installed.
    • Tip: Plug an Access Point into the PLM for best 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.
