Overview

  • Bridges RF-only INSTEON devices with power line-only INSTEON devices
  • Uses 915MHz band for fast, reliable communication

Essential Info

INSTEON is a powerful, home-control networking technology that will enhance the comfort, safety, convenience and value of your home. The INSTEON Access Point (& Wireless Phase Coupler) is dual-band (RF + power line) device which is the most important part of the INSTEON network. When used in pairs, Access Points will couple the electrical phases across common two-phase wiring systems, allowing INSTEON commands to freely travel to all locations in your home.

Dual-band INSTEON products allow RF-only INSTEON devices to send (and receive) commands to (and from) power line-only INSTEON devices as well as repeat the commands to other RF-only devices. While at least one (1) dual-band INSTEON product is required when using an RF-only INSTEON device, at least two (2) dual-band INSTEON products are recommended to ensure reliable communication across common two-phase home wiring systems. For larger applications, it is recommended to install at least one dual-band INSTEON product for each 750 - 1,000 square feet.

The Access Point functionality is built into all dual-band INSTEON products.

What's Included

  • INSTEON Access Point (& Wireless Phase Coupler)
  • More Info


    The INSTEON Access Point (& Wireless Phase Coupler) creates your dual-mesh INSTEON network by simultaneously transmitting and receiving INSTEON commands across both radio frequency and your home's existing wiring. When used as a pair, the Access Points also couple the two different electrical phases of your home. Each Access Point also repeats INSTEON commands, adding to the network's robust reliability. Please Note: Access Points repeat INSTEON signals and not X10.

    Control All of Your Lights From Your Couch
    Using a INSTEON RemoteLinc Wireless Remote Control (sold separately), the first wireless remote to send INSTEON commands to your lighting and appliances to control them remotely, you'll be able to turn all INSTEON-compatible devices in your home on and off at the press of a button. The Access Point bridges the RemoteLinc's RF signals to your home's power line, delivering power and scene commands to INSTEON-compatible devices throughout the house.

    White status LED
    The LED is used initially to help set up your network. After the initial setup, the white LED will flicker as it sends or receives INSTEON signals, making it easy to see when there is traffic traveling through your INSTEON network.

    Technical Note for use in Commercial or Large Residential Building
    INSTEON has only officially been tested in a 2-phase residential environment, but has been known to work in many 3-phase systems, where 3 Access Points are used (one on each phase). However, due to the potential complexity of its troubleshooting, Smarthome Technical Support is unable to support INSTEON in 3-phase environments.

    You dont likely need more than one of these in a 4000 sq ft house.
    PETER -- drexel hill, PA   2/23/2014
    As usual with adding something to the system it took one or two tries but it worked great and now the over 6000sq foot property is all linked and everything works great.
    MICHAEL -- north haven, CT   2/22/2014
    The Access Points worked as advertised and are a low-cost solution to Phase Coupling.
    DONALD -- shawnee, KS   2/10/2014
    Easy to set up and works perfectly. A must-have for larger houses or ones with 2-3 power leg service.
    JULIUS -- rolesville, NC   1/13/2014
    it works
    GENE -- los angeles, CA   1/6/2014
    works great for extending my door sensors.
    JOAN -- lexington, MA   11/8/2013
    The addition of a pair of these seemed to stabilize the sometimes patchy connection with all of our devices. Works as advertised.
    MIKE -- semora, NC   11/3/2013
    I can not tell if it is working... Trying to use this to solve connectivity problem with the mini remote which works line of sight at 30' but not when mini remote is in location where 3 interior walls block line of sight... I wish the LED on the Access Point would blink so I would know if it is doing anything... this is my second unit... I am sure it is on the same "phase" as the wall SwitchLinc because they are both on the same circuit breaker... Really want this to work since we want to use it to allow mini remote to turn on exterior floodlights when noises heard outside. /mike
    TimMcD1 -- atlanta, GA   10/18/2013
    Although this device functions as described, Insteon users should note that, per SMARTHOME'S documentation, it doesn't do anything any Dual-Band Insteon product won't do. Given the general cost of devices, you might as well add another dual-band dimmer or switch to your system and at least gain the additional functionality of that controlled item for relatively little additional cost.
    PETER -- riverview, FL   10/6/2013
    Works fine so far, no issues. AA++
    TRACY -- waller, TX   10/4/2013
    Had issues with a few buttons that wouldn't always respond. Added an access point and it now works great.
    DALE -- chatsworth, CA   10/4/2013
    didn't work until placed close to umit
    RALPH -- belhaven, NC   9/19/2013
    Nice product.
    SAMUEL -- hoffman estates, IL   9/19/2013
    A Must have at least 2 per home! Then everything should work as expected.
    RALPH -- belhaven, NC   9/5/2013
    Provides excellent coverage expansion. Easy to set up.
    MICHAEL -- lafayette, LA   7/22/2013
    Unit didn't accomplish what I needed.
    JASON -- daytona beach, FL   7/12/2013
    EASY to install. Buy two to couple the phases in your home. Makes whole system work much better.
    CHARLES -- watchung, NJ   6/30/2013
    I bought two of these because my houselinc2 was having troubles consistently finding all the insteon devices in my house, even with a signal bridge that I installed at the circuit breaker. I plugged these in to opposite phases near the problem area and the success rate with houselinc2 has gone from about 50% to 90% or better.
    JOHN -- seneca, SC   6/3/2013
    Greatly improved reliability of Insteon "network".
    KEN -- bellevue, WA   5/25/2013
    Plug 'em in and forget about them. They seem to work well.
