Insteon with X10 appliance mod?

I purchased a Insteon 2245-222 hub to work with my existing X10 appliance module. I have activated the hub, opened an account, installed the Insteon for hub app on my smart phone.
I have set up 1 of the appliance modules in the hub via the smart phone app. I can turn the mod on and off with the app. But when I try to set up a schedule with an on time and off time, update the hub but the times come and go and nothing happens.

Any clue what I am doing wrong?

Re: Insteon with X10 appliance mod?

I know this response isn't on point and sometimes I hate that. But having been there done that with X10 and Insteon I have to recommend switching to TP-Link Kasa wifi driven technology. It is much more reliable and has a good app for setting timers, themes, etc. I don't know if they offer plug in appliance modules but they have smart receptacles that will do appliances. Then if you really want to go to the darkside you can link this to Alexa for easy voice control of everything.
Live long and prosper.
