Overview

  • Sensor mounts on the interior or exterior of your home to monitor temperature
  • Adjustable high and low temperature set points between -30° F and 130° F
  • Once a threshold has been reached, the sensor contacts open sending a signal to the I/O Linc
  • Once signaled, I/O Linc will trigger INSTEON-controlled lights or appliances to turn on
  • High/Low temperature sensor is completely mechanical and requires no power supply
  • INSTEON compatibility for outstanding performance

Essential Info

Increase the versatility of your INSTEON home automation network using I/O Linc - INSTEON High and Low Temperature Threshold Kit. This kit was designed to monitor temperatures and alert you via your INSTEON network when an upper or lower temperature limit has been reached. The temperature sensor is user definable, allowing high and low temperature thresholds to be set between -30° F to 130° F. The sensor is also flexible enough to be used to monitor low temperature only, high temperature only, or low and high temperatures at the same time. Once a threshold has been reached an INSTEON command can be sent, turning INSTEON controlled lights and appliances on or off. With INSTEON you can create programs for controlling temperatures in remote areas that are susceptible to extreme temperatures, such as attics, garages, basements, and wine cellars. Ideally, you can link this kit with an I/O Linc - INSTEON Telephone Alert Kit so that you will receive a phone call if high or low temperature thresholds are reached, allowing you to take immediate action and possibly save your property and equipment from costly damage. Use the I/O Linc - INSTEON High and Low Temperature Threshold Kit to monitor temperatures, expanding and enhancing your versatile INSTEON network.

How it Works
The sensor monitors air temperature and can be set to recognize a customizable high and/or low temperature limit. When a limit has been detected, the sensor triggers the included I/O Linc - INSTEON Low Voltage / Contact Closure Interface (1 In / 1 Out). Simply link I/O Linc to a remote INSTEON device which can act as an alert for the limit being reached or can activate an INSTEON controlled heating or cooling device. For example, if outdoor temperatures reach a low limit of 35° F, I/O Linc can turn off sprinklers to prevent ice buildup; alternatively, if indoor temperatures reach 85° F, you can turn on ceiling fans to create air circulation and bring temperatures down.

Please Note: Avoid mounting the temperature sensor in areas that are subject to frost and excess moisture; do not mount in a cooler or freezer. An I/O Linc - INSTEON Freezer Failure Sensor Kit is available separately.

    I agree, that this this is NOT the best way to go. Much better to use wireless thermostat. For simple alarm, you don't need ISY, you can use the hub, or even just send an email alert when temp hits xx, just don't need to use it as an actual tstat. Just apply 24volts,and presto... or add a remote sensor, if you want to know when it hits near zero. Also, it is very manual with big arms, so it can and has for me bounce the outputs. This is the only Insteon well, not really, but sort of device so far that I have NOT been impressed with. I don't like using wrenches to set temperature... MUCH better and easier to have DIGITAL controls, AND much more accurate.

    It works, but a less costly and better way to do it, is to use an Insteon wireless thermostat. With an ISY you can then program using temperature and / or humidity. In order for the thermostat to work properly , you will need an external power source. An Iphone charger with a cable with the phone end cut off of the cable
    Joe G. -- New Jersey   5/3/2012
    Totally and completely USELESS. Set for High and Low Temp... The I/O sends an 'ON’ command while the sensor is touching the high point, and sends an ‘OFF’ when it stops touching the high point..... not when it reaches the cold set point!!! An attempt to get SmartHome Chat Tech Support was equally useless, where the operator asked if I had a controller I did, but the devise was designed to be used without one and wouldn't answer for 5-8 minutes, or not at all. The devise SHOULD send an instant 'On' command on high, and only send and 'OFF' command when it reaches the low contact.

    The temperature sensor is user definable, allowing high and low temperature thresholds to be set between -30° F to 130° F. However, be aware that it uses/requires a physical connection to another device with an operating temperature limited to the range of +32 to 104 degrees. http://www.smarthome.com/2450/IOLinc-INSTEON-Low-Voltage-Contact-Closure-Interface-1-In-1-Out-/p.aspx

    Unit did not trigger when it was supposed to.
    MARK -- arlington, VA   11/28/2011
    Effective and requires no power!
    Jim Speiser -- payson, AZ   10/10/2011
    The mechanical nature of this device, while pleasantly old-school sounding, is actually a detriment, at least in my application. I am using it to control a duct booster fan in my bedroom, and have it set to a narrow range 65-75 degrees. When the temp indicator is in the neighborhood of one of the limit arms, it tends to send on and off signals to the IOLinc in rapid succession, which I'm sure my duct booster fan does not love. I would really appreciate SmartHome developing a digital alternative, like the old X-10 version.
    GEORGE -- longmont, CO   10/24/2010
    old school, mechanical and perfect for my application
    Jim Fransen -- vicksburg, MS   9/25/2010
    Didn't work for me. Temp accuracy was quite a bit off +- 15 degrees? Will return and try something else. Smarthome has been good about returns.
    Mahdi -- New York   6/4/2009
    It worked for me in combination with the SwitchLinc 220V Switch Kit to control the AC in our server room. Only problem for me is the false calls when it teeters around the high/low temperature. It's not too bad... only happens once or twice before the AC goes on/off. Wish there was a better way/thermometer to do this. Simple device that does what it says.
