Insteon 2245 Hub Reviewed

I've been a fan of Universal Devices' ISY line of home automation controllers for quite a while. They are incredibly powerful, highly extensible, and very reasonably priced. The current model is the ISY-994i, and it supports multiple protocols (Insteon, X10, and optionally Z-Wave), can manage over a thousand devices, and run a thousand custom programs. That's the good news. The bad news is that the ISYs still suffer from a horrid user interface, a Java client that looks like an applet stuck in a 90's time warp.

I use an ISY-994i as my primary home automation controller, but recently needed to make changes to another family member's configuration, one that I need to support remotely, and so I used the opportunity to take a look an updated contender, Smarthome's Insteon 2245 Hub.
