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.

    The lamp itself is really cheap - it's all plastic. That said, the Insteon Relay is excellent.
    GARY -- los altos hills, CA   1/13/2013
    Nothing to report. It's still in the box. I'll eventually get around to it, but since you are insistent that you want a review ... This is it.
    DAVID -- bayside, NY   12/29/2012
    All plastic. Not as well made as I would have liked for an outdoor device. Insteon module is a separate unit. The unit is included but you have to hook it up in the box so you need to make sure there is room.
    RODNEY -- new orleans, LA   12/27/2012
    In-LineLinc Relay does not respond to software commands, only linked push-button control unit. Tech Support was not much help to troubleshoot problem.
    FRANK B -- santee, CA   12/17/2012
    Cheaply made...not well integrated with HL software
    Raymond Oral -- orland park, Il   11/21/2012
    Like others noted below, had I known that this was two components I would not have purchased. For existing construction, it is difficult enough to wire without having to add an additional box for the inline linc box.
    WILEY -- kailua kona, HI   10/20/2012
    Not used. While security is important and exterior lighting helps, my HOA's dark skies policy (no unshielded lights) had priority.
    MARK -- ellicott city, MD   5/31/2012
    Deceptively described: Not clearly stated that this is TWO components, requiring separate boxes, rather than a full replacement for existing lamp.

    BRADLEY -- glenmoore, PA   3/24/2012
    Overall good device. Would be nice of it were all incorporated into the lighting fixture, instead of requiring an inline linc device. If you were doing a clean install, I suppose you could get everything into one LARGE mounting box as the instructions indicate. But in an existing install, you will likely have to add an additional box and the wires aren't long enough (without you extending them) to easily do so.
    MICHAEL -- frisco, TX   12/28/2011
    Didn't realize this was not an all in one kit. Materials seem cheap compared to other Smarthome products.
    JAMES -- clermont, FL   6/27/2011
    For the price this item is very cheaply made. The entire unit is made of cheap plastic. I did not install this item because of how cheap it looks and the fact that it did not cover the entire electrical box.
    RIC -- northridge, CA   5/9/2011
    Good unit, loved the INSTEON integration. Sensor needs to be a bit more sensitive, but other than that a good solid product that is working well for me.
    NATHAN -- fresno, CA   9/9/2010
    The In-LineLinc Relay with Sense works great. Connection and instructions are relatively easy (as in-line wiring goes). The floodlight, though functional, is constructed entirely of plastic and is of low quality. It lacks rubber gaskets for each light socket to help seal it against weathering. I don't expect the fixture to last more than a few years with moderately harsh weather conditions and I'd recommend getting the In-LineLinc with Sense by itself and a higher quality motion floodlight instead.

    ERIK -- ben lomond, CA   1/4/2010
    Average quality motions sensor, basically only has on/off with timer.
    MICHAEL -- los gatos, CA   12/9/2009
    I've been waiting for this type of product from Insteon since I did the initial installation 3 years ago. I wanted a motion sensor to monitor my driveway. It needed to be wired because I don't like depending on batteries. I also did not want to have to use an X10 type of product because my house uses Insteon. My plan was to have this device turn on all my other outdoor spot lights which are controlled my Insteon. Only 2 problems: 1) The inline linc relay with this product is not compatible with Houselink 1 software. So I will have to upgrade at a cost of $150. I'm not too happy about that since this system is < 3 years old. 2) I swapped out the screw-in bulb sockets for halogen lamps. They are metal and the metal threads are rough on the plastic housing. So I wish the housing was metal. It would be more durable.
    WILLIAM S -- guilford, VT   11/5/2009
    Floodlight kit is about the cheapest construction I have seen yet. Very hard to adjust the position of the detector as installed floodlamps block the sensors view. The stalks for the sensor and lamps should be longer. The kit does work as advertised. Next time I will buy the sensor/floodlight kit from a local homecenter and just buy an InlineLinc W/sense from Smarthome. You will need a DEEP round weatherproof box for installation as it it near impossible to fit the InlineLinc Relay in a standard weatherproof box along with all of the wiring.
