INSTEON 2413U Modem

The INSTEON 2413U Modem is a USB device which plugs into the Virtual Wiring System. It provides access to all the INSTEON devices in a INSTEON network. When creating an INSTEON network for a Virtual Wiring system, the 2413 Modem Device is the first INSTEON Device added.

2413U Modem Device Description

The 2413 Modem Device has no terminals - its only function is as an interface to an INSTEON network. A 2413U Modem is physically installed by plugging it into a USB port on the Virtual Wiring System.

Installing a 2413U Modem

After plugging in the 2413U, create a 2413 Modem Device by running the Modem2413 Script. The parameters for the Modem2413 Script are:

port_location :

  • the location of the USB port. In *nix systems, this is in the /dev directory with a name like /dev/ttyUSB0 or /dev/cu.usbserial-00001004. Type "ls -lrt /dev/*" for hints. On Windows systems, the location is COMx where "x" is a number (1,2,3, etc.).


To add a 2413 Modem Device with ID "modem" and port_location "/dev/ttyUSB0", run the Modem2413 Script with the following parameters:

id: "modem"
port_location: "/dev/ttyUSB0"
