Create alerts by adding water leak sensors, motion sensors, door/window sensors and more. The INSTEON Hub will send text and email alerts to you as well as anyone else you wish. The Hub also stores the status of these sensors, so you can easily check on your sensors from within the app anytime.

    WILLIAM -- brecksville, OH   7/3/2014
    For my purposes and as installed the unit is working well. I would have given 5 stars, but I do not like the default requirement for connecting through an external service. I was able to configure directly from the built-in web interface without utilizing the external service, but this is not something an uniformed user could perform.
    STEPHEN -- atlanta, GA   6/28/2014
    Don't be scared by refurbished products. This hub is in perfect working condition, was easy to setup, and is performing well with the iPhone app.
    STEVEN -- apopka, FL   6/18/2014
    This was replacement hub for an outdated hub that I bought new. I would have expected to receive a new rather than refurbished hub. Also, the replacement hub does not communicate with older Insteon devices. Seems to me everything would be backwards compatible since this was replaced at the urging of Smarthome.
    DHARMIN -- foster city, CA   6/15/2014
    Most of the times not able to connect to my insteon bulb. The app shows the yellow color in the status, that might be indicating "Unknown"
    JIM -- tavernier, FL   6/12/2014
    The hardware arrived on time and was in "like new" condition, but without new packaging - no problem to me! The hub was easy to install and works great on my local network, but have not been able to get it to work remotely. The website, doesn't do much - my cameras will not display and the activeX control won't load in IE. The refurb was a good buy.
    TOM -- brighton, MI   5/19/2014
    Installation instructions are terrible, very sketchy and incomplete. If they improved the instructions and the interface applications this could be a great system.
    STEVE -- manteno, IL   4/28/2014
    Love it! However, it took a little work getting the app to work. I made a mistake signing in with a new account, but the tech team help correct it! The Insteon Hub works with the X10 devices, but you are not able to create a scene with X10 (disappointing). However, great device. I guess I need to purchase some Insteon devices!
    DAVID -- trussville, AL   4/27/2014
    CHRISTOPHER B. -- merrimack, NH   4/27/2014
    Works as advertized... all my devices including the X10 units work perfectly. If only scenes can include the X10 devices.
    MARLON -- pleasant grove, UT   4/26/2014
    The remote set up required a call to customer service, but their help was quick and professional. This is beyond cool!
    omarti321 -- Massachusetts   4/16/2014
    Ordered refurbished HUB. Everything packaged nicely and basically appeared to be like new. The HUB had the plastic peel away stuff to protect it's finish, nice touch. Linked right up to my network along with the Water Leak Sensor and the device quickly set itself up for remote access as well when I selected that option. The whole setup was pretty easy, and now I have peace of mind during heavy rainstorms or when the water in our area gets high.
    DAVID -- monteagle, TN   4/10/2014
    product performed as specified. Works great. would be better if more instructions were included, rather than depending on "on line" resources.
    DAVID -- san leon, TX   4/8/2014
    Seems to go off line at will. I have a very high bandwidth connection that should not cause this problem. I had to stop monitoring it with email as it constantly went off line
    TIM -- houston, TX   4/6/2014
    Easy install. Works well for basic on/off, screens and dusk/dawn functions
