Essential Info

The ISY994i/IR PRO is one of the most advanced INSTEON controllers on the market and has numerous features to satisfy the most advanced DIY'er or seasoned home control enthusiast. If you need unbridled control, the ISY994i/IR PRO is your controller.

The ISY994i/IR PRO supports up to 1,024 devices and scenes and a maximum of 1,000 programs. The ISY994i/IR PRO controller is able to configure and program INSTEON devices using INSTEON native protocols and specifications. This allows it to directly write to INSTEON devices internally instead of just in the controller, creating a more robust network. You can set up timer events and custom event triggers, as well as monitor and control all the INSTEON-compatible devices in your home from any web-browser anywhere in the world. Now you can check if the lights in your house were left on and remotely control them from your computer at the office. The IR model allows you to program your infrared universal remote to control all your INSTEON/X10 devices and scenes. The PRO model extends the capabilities of the ISY for extremely large installations.

This kit includes an INSTEON Dual-Band PLM Serial Interface, allowing for direct communication with your existing INSTEON network from the ISY-994i/IR controller. The PLM features built-in dual-band technology that sends and receives INSTEON signals via powerline and radio frequency (RF), so it doubles as an Access Point. This makes it ideal for new INSTEON installs if you have or plan to use an RF-only INSTEON-compatible devices like a remote, thermostat, motion sensor or contact sensor.

Additional Features:
  • IR Control - Control all your INSTEON/X10 devices with any infrared universal remote (RC5-compatible)
  • Control other network-enabled devices using an optional Network Module (RS-232 devices can be controlled using an ELK IP232 or Global Cache GC-100 and more)
  • Non IR models can be field upgraded to IR platform

  • Extends the capabilities of the ISY99i Series
  • An expansion slot which could be utilized to install and support other protocols such as a Zigbee
  • Increased code memory to support additional communications drivers
  • Native support for Open ADR out of the box

  • Please Note:
  • The ISY994i/IR PRO does not require a power supply when used with a PLM which supplies power via the RJ-45 port (for example, PLM model #2412S). ISY994i/IR PRO does provide a port for an optional AC adapter for instances where the PLM does not supply power, or the user prefers to supply power independent of the PLM (for example, PLM model #2413S).

    I had an inoperable system after 5 days and suspected the ISY was my problem. I returned the device because I was reaching the end of my 30 No Hassle Return period. I may reorder after I return from a lengthy trip because I still hope that the Smarthome/Insteon solution is going to work.
    NEIL -- romeoville, IL   1/1/2014
    Excellent piece of equipment!
    THOMAS -- mantorville, MN   12/6/2013
    I would have given the product 5 stars had it included comprehensive migration instructions from ISY99i.
    PAUL -- coral springs, FL   11/23/2013
    Nice product... takes a little getting use to programming... the forums are a great source of info. Would be nice to have a "wait" command based on a variable.
    MARIO -- naucalpan, XX   10/1/2013
    I've tested several controllers and this is by far the best. As always Smarthome service is excellent!!
    CHRISTOPHER -- clearwater, FL   9/5/2013
    Nice improvement over my isy99 product. Have not had enough time to further evaluate. Ordering, shipping were flawless, product was received in excellent condition.
    MARCELO FRANCK -- curitiba, Brazil   6/29/2013
    The item arrived safely and well packed. I did not have time to test it or install it properly but initial setup failed as the configuration menu is not showing up. I still have to study the system more before figuring out if it is working properly or not
    Steve S -- encino, CA   4/30/2013
    I have been an ISY99i/IR/PRO user for over 5 years now. My only complaint is about me for not writing a rave review A+ 5 star review long before now. The ISY is an excellent product and their technical support is the best. I have have what could be considered a complicated installation with about 100 Insteon devices and a large number of scenes and programs. The ISY makes the management of everything so easy and i never have to do anything except easily upgrading to a new firmware version when I add brand new devices that did not exist when the previous version was released. I wish that everything I owned worked as well and was supported as well as the ISY.
    fosin -- United States   4/23/2013
    Excellent device. The box works great though. I was surprised how quick I was able to switch over my insteon system to the ISY device. The interface is ugly, but easy to use. The interface uses Java...but it works way better than I expected a Java interface to work. It is a good value based on prices of other insteon products. I would have said an excellent value, but some features they make you pay extra for. Features I think should have been included...Like being able to add X10 devices to a scene. That seems like a basic function for a device like this. Luckily, I don't have many X10 devices. If you want to have a web server or send TCP commands to devices like an iTach, you have to buy another $50 network module. I will say that the modules are super easy to buy and they install automatically. Another small issue I had that may be a problem for some of doesn't work well with the RF bridges Access Points. This could cause you a problem if you are using a lot of appliance modules that don't have RF and have trouble with your power line signals. But, it works perfect with all of the other devices I've tried. RemoteLincs, ControlLincs, leak sensors, I/O linc, InlineLinc, OutletLinc, and the different light switches. I should give it 3 stars due to what I mentioned above bought the Pro version but still had to buy extra modules. But it works so well, compared to other X10 and insteon software I've used, I have to give it at least 4.
    BERTRAM -- san diego, CA   4/17/2013
    I am saddened to say that the out of the box experience with this is so much better than the Insteon Hub that I bought previously. I still have the hub, but am in the process of getting it completely removed and sold off as a loss. The ISY does in fact work very reliably albeit with a clunky software interface, but not as confusing as the bifurcated experience as the Insteon Hub; either smartphone app or Houselinc, but not both ... neither well. I can easily say the clunky ISY Java interface provides a more reliable and 'fuller' featured (not everything I want, but still fuller than the Insteon Hub) experience. Scenes can be programmed from the PC without issue, variable support, network time (what year is this that this isn't automatic, Insteon Hub?). I could really go on, but it's late. Not 5 stars obviously, because the software interface isn't perfect. I do like a lot of things about Houselinc, but that is clearly not a coherent strategy so no big loss cutting free of it.
    THOMAS J -- clark, NJ   2/9/2013
    Extremely satisfied...after struggling with the old EZServe I had just about given up on automating Insteon. EZServe promised a lot but delivered nothing but headaches. Since I didn't want to leave a PC on all the time just to run some Home Automation I had decided to go with local links only and forget about anything fancy. When Smarthome dropped its price I read up on ISY and discovered that most everyone was highly satisfied. I decided to give it a go. I had to wait a bit since it was sold out but the device was delivered when promised. After a read-through of the manual and a few hours learning the commands I plugged it it. It fired right up and in short order I had linked 35 devices and began programming. Of course I made a few mistakes and had to go to the Universal-Devices forum to learn some tricks but this is all part of the fun of learning something new. To those who have complained about the manual not being very good, RTFM again, only this time carefully carefully, and if that doesn't work perhaps you shouldn't be owning an ISY. ISY has been rock stable for three weeks and hasn't missed a beat. All I can say is WOW.
    Brian M. -- United States   12/30/2012
    I purchased an ISY-99i/IR several months ago and have been very pleased with it. I am a programmer and discovered an obscure SMTP protocol problem a while back. I submitted a support request to UDI and got an immediate response. Even though this probably would have affected only 1 out of 1000 installations, UDI provided me with a beta version of the firmware with the fix for the problem within 48 hours. I have 30+ years of experience in the computer software business, so I can speak with authority in saying that this level of customer support is virtually non-existent. They were absolutely 100% professional and courteous and gave the issue top priority. It is all too common these days to buy a specialized piece of hardware such as this only to find that support comes from China. I would strongly recommend the ISY product line and UDI without hesitation!
    T -- litchfield, NH   11/3/2012
    Once I got the latest firmware loaded, it worked great.
    Don_R -- yorktown, VA   10/7/2012
    Great product! Everything works as advertised so far. Had trouble controlling a couple old x-10 devices but used it as a good excuse to upgrade everything to Insteon! Email and text notifications come thru very quick. Thermostat linked perfect. Linking, writting programs is so easy. Haven't tried the IR yet. Plan to add power monitoring and will repost those results. Do Not download Conductor for android. Doesn't work. MoblileLink Pro works great with this controller on android phones, iphone4, and ipads. Camera plugin is only avalilable on the mobilelink for apple. On android I use IP CAM VIEVER and it works good.
    Ryan -- United States   8/3/2012
    The ISY994i/IR is exactly what I should have bought in the first place when I started working with INSTEON in my home. It allows you to quickly and intuitively create all of your scenes and then it pushed out the programming and linking to all of your devices automatically. The interface isn't the most pretty thing, but it's intuitive, stable, and it works! This also allows you the most control options if you are using an iOS or Android application to control your home. It's program ability with conditionals really will let you do whatever you need for setting up various tasks. I'd give it 5 stars, but the finish of the unit and the software could use a little polish.
    DENNIS -- waterford, WI   6/4/2012
    Mine was DOA. However, UDI responded to my problem by sending a replacement before I had returned the defective unit. Excellent customer service from a product manufacturer. Would have been five stars except for the DOA issue.
    DANE -- franklin, TN   5/31/2012
    love it so far- although I'm still getting to know this little wonder.
