Essential Info

Standard motion sensor floodlights just turn on their own lights when someone walks past. With this kit you can also have a light switch or lamp inside the house turn on, letting you know there's someone outside. If you're going on vacation, this also gives unwanted visitors the impression that someone is home. Combine multiple floodlight kits and you can have all of them turn on when one is triggered.

You can also remotely control the floodlight from a keypad, a handheld or tabletop remote. You can even control it from your iPhone or any web-enabled device.

Motion Sensor features adjustable time delay, night-only mode, and 110-degree detection zone. Bulbs sold separately.

  • More Info

    The kit includes an In-LineLinc which connects between the wires in the electrical box and the motion sensor floodlights. This is what enables the motion sensor and lights to be INSTEON-compatible. If you have existing floodlight motion sensors, you may wish to make them INSTEON-compatible by simply purchasing and installing an In-LineLinc Relay.

    Avoid Aiming the INSTEON Motion Sensor Floodlight at:
  • Objects that change temperature rapidly, such as heating vents and air conditioners. These heat sources could cause false triggering.
  • Areas where pets or traffic may trigger the control.
  • Nearby large, light-colored objects reflecting light may trigger the shut-off feature. Do not point other lights at the sensor.
  • For proper alignment, make sure the junction box has diagonal mounting.

    I managed to get this all to fit into a regular 4 round box; however, it was a very tight fit! I am able to turn on/off the light at anytime via Insteon; however, I was hoping I would be able to read the motion sensor via my Insteon network, but it turns out you cannot do that. The only way to know if motion has been detected is to check the state of the light, and motion detection will only turn the light on at night, so this is useless to trigger a doorbell or as a security motion sensor because it only works at night.

    Two problems. The relay is not pre-assembled into the light and did not fit my current junction boxes. As this is a bit of a DYI, I was 20 feet up trying to wire and place the wires into a junction box that I could not remove and could not hold the wiring and relay. As one has to attach to the lights, would have preferred to get a better motion detector and light set - there are others that get better reviews.

    This was a little more of a "DIY Kit" than a ready-to-install unit. After following instructions, it works as advertised
    Leo S -- Houston   9/17/2012
    Insteon controller works like a champ but the included motion detecting light fixture isn't up to par. The included motion sensor/fixture is the $13 sensor you can buy at the big box stores. It does save you some $ to buy it bundled but the sensitivity/covered area isn't enough for me. I was also surprised by the size of the control module itself. As others have stated a regular 4 round isn't quite enough. My solution was to purchase a box extension to provide enough space.
    M ALICIA -- quakertown, PA   4/1/2012
    works well, easy to install
    JERRY -- prairie village, KS   1/29/2012
    This is a gread product, however, Smarthome does not have enough info on line to understand where this fits, and if it fits. I installed this device in two places. The relay that sends the signal will not fit in a regular 4in box. Added a second 4in box w/cover and nippled to the light jct box (recommended for ease of setting triggering the signal, while the lights are mounted, and not hanging. More infomation is needed on the smarthome site regarding space and installation requirements.

    Looks lisk a direct replacement for the X-10 motion sensor, but the electronics for this unit are a separate sensor relay rather than being built in to the head. Uses a rectangular electrical box versus the round one of the X-10. Installation required the addition of another box to contain the sensor relay.

    replaced two x10 units with these insteon models great product
    BRYAN -- stillwater, MN   12/29/2011
    worked like a charm
    RICHARD -- west milford, NJ   12/28/2011
    the switch is great, the motion detector not as nice as the usual products. Senses motion fine, but no night only mode, and limited delay settings. Might of done this different if it was clear. The in-line linc is a gem. 5 stars for the inline-linc, only 3 for the motion detector.
    MARK -- granbury, TX   7/25/2011
    Works ok, sensor only has 110 degrees of detection. Limited but works.
    RICHARD -- metttawa, IL   3/31/2011
    the relay linc is a little larger than I thought it would be. It will be a tough fit outdoors.
    STANLEY -- dummerston, VT   10/9/2009
    Note the motion sensor is standard off the shelf sensor. The range does not seam to be as good as my X-10 motion sensor purchase from this site. Also the function is a little wierd, even though I turn it on via Insteon, it still times off just as if the motion detector had turned it on. I have also had a couple false triggers on the motion sensor. The in-line-link is the interface to Insteon control. You need to have plenty of room in the box for it. a standard 1 1/2 deep round weather proof box is not really deep enough. I like my X-10 unit better, (not sure if they are still available). If you already have a motion light- just buy the in line link separately and save some cash.

    Used to enhance my residential security... wireless connection to additional INSTEON products makes this more than just a motion light, but adds to my overall security system...
