The Insteon & Zwave Ping Utility. A relatively painless way to assess your Home Automation Network.

What is the Survey Plugin?

The Survey plugin is primarily used for helping diagnose or identifying issues with the Indigo device network. The plugin will send a “ping” out to each device on the network and track how long it takes the device to respond. These metrics can help identify devices that are slow to respond, or responding erratically.


1.  Open the "Add to Plugin Directory", and Double click on the Survey2.indigoPlugin
    file.  Indigo will prompt you to install the plugin or upgrade any existing plugin.
    If Indigo does not prompt you, please upgrade to the latest version, or Open the
    "Add to Plugin Directory" folder, and take the survey2.indigoPlugin file and place
    it into /Library/Application Support/Perceptive Automation/Indigo 7/Plugins
2.  Restart the Indigo 7 Server

Basic Usage:

⁃   From the Plugin Menu, choose the Survey Plugin, and choose How many Passes to run.
⁃   Each Pass is a complete examination of all Insteon devices.  So the more passes
    (and more devices you have) the longer it will take to process the report.
⁃   While the report is running Indigo maybe slower to respond to other Home Automation
    requests.  While I have written the software to allow Indigo to process other
    requests, it is a good idea to run the survey’s when the system is reasonably idle.
⁃   Survey’s will be stored in ~/Documents/Surveys, and can be deleted, or preserved
    as required.
⁃   This plugin currently supports all Insteon devices that support the Insteon
    StatusRequest command.  Generally that means that any battery powered Insteon
    device will not be tested with this plugin.

Once the report is done, Indigo will open a web browser that contains the results of the survey.

The Plugin does not have a Web Interface.
