Query Insteon Engine

In the case of I2CS devices, ISY does indeed need to know the engine version to use different mode of communications with those devices. If your INSTEON devices do not respond to commands, it's quite possible that ISY was not able to query their engine version.
In those cases, simply right mouse click on your device and then choose Diagnostics | Query Insteon Engine (Figure 1).

Group Cleanup Retries from Device to PLM

The following options apply only to I2CS Devices and ISY firmware versions 4.0.2+

You can set the number of Group Cleanup Retries for a controller device sending a signal/command to the PLM. ISY defaults this value to zero. Please note that excessive group cleanup signals degrade performance and may cause interference and unwanted behavior. As such, extreme care should be taken when deciding to change this value.
To change the value, right mouse click on the device and then choose Advanced | PLM Communications (Figure 2). In the ensuing dialog, change the number of retries for each and every button/node for that device (Figure 3).

To change the value, click on a controller within an ISY scene and then in the ensuing dialog, change the number of retries for each responder (Figure 4).
