The INSTEON Portable USB Adapter is a home control interface that allows hardware-based automation systems to control INSTEON-compatible lights, appliances, heating/air conditioning systems and alarm systems directly via the INSTEON network. The interface requires 3rd party INSTEON software in order to function. This includes Indigo
. Check with third party software developer for support readiness.
The single-band interface sends and receives radio frequency (RF) INSTEON signals. If you are trying to control power line only devices you must have at least one Access Point
or dual-band INSTEON product
for communication. For best INSTEON network performance, be sure you have properly installed at least two dual-band INSTEON products.
Since this is a RF only device, for always on applications, we highly recommend the plug-in dual-band version
for superior performance and reliability.Important Notes:This interface does not support program downloads and therefore the computer/software must remain on to execute timers and triggered events
