Spiderng With Keeping Your Links

If your new to the ISY and want to keep your existing network linking then spidering your network is what your looking for. It will bring in any existing links in your devices so you will have less to do manually. It is suggested you pick devices to start with that are part of large scenes (like an "all lights" scene), because the spidering depends on following the links around your network to get as many devices as possible.


  1. Use the "Logon to My Insteon ISY Now!" weblink, enter your user name and password when prompted to get logged in
  2. Open the linking utility from the pull-down menu go to "Link Management --> Start Linking"
  3. Select "Add devices found in links and keep existing links" which puts it into spider mode
  4. OK the popup window which warns of the lengthy time it might take
  5. Go to one of your devices with a big scene linked to it, and hold the button down until it goes into linking mode


The ISY will start spidering the network collecting all the links it can find. If it misses some of your devices you can go to one of the missed devices that has a large scene and do the same process. Keep working your way thru your network until all your devices are added to the ISY.
