From this point onward, I will make the assumption that my readers are (1) homeowners skilled with electrical systems, (2) professional electricians, or (3) curious people who just want to read the article but who aren`t planning to self-administer shock therapy. My Insteon system is limited in scope ” I have only relay controls (primarily 2466SW units) and no dimmers because my system is almost entirely compact fluorescents.

Also, in a later section, I describe in detail what I regard as the heart of a sophisticated Insteon system ” a system controller with enough brain power to make the entire system modestly intelligent.
