Essential Info

Whether you're a seasoned DIY'r or new to home automation, SmartLinc - INSTEON Plug-In Starter Kit has everything you need to experience remote control of lights and appliances from inside your home, on your way home from the office, or halfway around the world on vacation. The SmartLinc Central Controller connects to an existing router (required) allowing for direct communication via the Internet or Wi-Fi from an iPhone, iPod touch or any other Web-enabled PC, Phone or PDA. With SmartLinc, you can check to see if you've left the lights on and even turn them off while you're at the office or you can simply dim the lights while relaxing on your couch. Included are two lamp modules which will each control a plug-in dimmable lamp and an On/Off module which will control a plug-in non-dimmable fluorescent light or appliance. From your web-enabled device, you can control the modules individually or as "scenes."

Expandability
Expand this SmartLinc kit to include control of other INSTEON dimmers and switches, wire-in / outlet modules, plug-in modules, low-voltage input / output control, control your thermostat, display power consumption of an appliance, control the garage door and much more.

Easy To Install
The SmartLinc - INSTEON Plug-In Starter Kit is so easy to install and set up and yet so affordable, you'll want to automate your entire home with INSTEON-compatible products. Each of the modules included with this kit simply plug-in to an existing outlet, with the SmartLinc also requiring a connection to your router. Following the included instructions, start linking the included devices to your web-enabled phone or PDA (designed for optimal use with an iPhone or iPod touch) to control your INSTEON network from almost anywhere. Adjust brightness levels and ramp rates that create awesome lighting scenes or simply create timers based on when you are home or by sunrise and sunset.

    Please Note: This kit is designed for SmartLinc to receive signals from your router via your iPhone, iPod touch, web-enabled phone or PDA. It will in turn send out an INSTEON signal that will communicate with the other included INSTEON modules. If you plan to install the included modules on different electrical phases in your home, or plan to expand your INSTEON network to control other lights or appliance on separate phases, we recommend purchasing a pair of Access Points to ensure reliable communication.

    VINCENT -- west hempstead, NY   2/22/2012
    Product is fine. Unit is working well however I called to see if I could exchange plug in module for wired modules and pay difference plus shipping costs and was told no. Really not happy with customer service.
    GARY -- canonsburg, PA   12/26/2011
    Starter kit is easy to setup and get ready. Definitely use static IP for the device so you can get to it anytime.
    STEVEN -- lake in the hills, IL   11/2/2011
    Installed w/ ease but can't figure out how to access remotely. I will try downloading full instructions next.
    KIM -- dallas, TX   7/24/2011
    Works very well, but the included ICON lamp dimmers don't seem as reliable as the LampLinc dimmers, which I bought separately although it could be specific to my setup. When I expand, I will be getting more LampLinc dimmers. In general, the product naming and functionality is a little confusing to a new "Smarthome" buyer like me ... Linc, INSTEON, X10, ICON, Dual Band, ...
    MARY L -- cedarville, MI   6/18/2011
    I don't know about this start up kit. I am considering the iSY-911i but it works with the usb model. It just seems that every time i go to fix this problem I run into another wall. I do have every intention of developing my lighting system and I made the investment in insteon. I did so because I like you product I am just irritated by the performance.
    JEREMY -- point roberts, WA   4/22/2011
    Good starter kit.
    KEVIN -- loveland, CO   3/23/2011
    Smartlinc software is rather primitive, but good enough to do what I need. I hope they invest in better software. Instruction manuals could be a lot better.
    RAYMOND -- san jose, CA   3/3/2011
    Installed within minutes and works very well.
    ERIC -- chicago, IL   2/11/2011
    Works as advertised. I was somewhat disappointed by the lack of flexibility; however, I think the feature set is appropriate for the price.
    JONATHAN -- beverly, MA   1/23/2011
    I could not get the clock to set properly and could not get the system to install without assistance. I will have to call to set this up
    CHAD -- provo, UT   1/15/2011
    First unit was a dud, but was quickly replaced. The interface on this isn't the greatest, hence the 4 stars. Once you get used to the quirks though it works nice. I used the mobilinc iPhone app works nice. Just took a little getting used to.
    DENIS -- rochester, MI   12/20/2010
    Pretty cool. The kit components work fine, i am struggling with adding additional components. For example, I purchasedthe thermostat and Insteon radio for the thermostAt and I am being told I need yet another component to make it work with my central controller...yet to resolve this. Also purchased a wired dimmer, switch works perfect from the wall, works intermitantly by remote control...won't buy any additional priducts until these are resolved to satisfaction.
    JON -- chicago, IL   9/22/2010
    Very well thought out, easy to set up, and it works with clients on any platform due to its browser based nature.
    DEAN -- chandler, AZ   9/15/2010
    good idea have to have phase coupler
    MICHAEL -- cincinnati, OH   9/14/2010
    Pro - able to gain access on personal network and remotely with ease (after reading about port forwarding), very quick on PCs and Apple devices, slow on Palm. Con - not all scenes work properly (ie dimming feature does not work correctly in room 3 slot 3), only one thermostat is programmable and the "program" feature does not even carry over into the smartlinc interface, only "Off, Auto, Cool, Heat" show up. Had to locate Smartlinc controller at circuitbox to get all parts of house to work.
    BRUCE -- mammoth lakes, CA   8/26/2010
    Works fine but there needs to be more information online for programing the controller and more information about what it will do and will not do. I am looking to get a more sophisticated controller in the future.
    CHETAN -- new york, NY   8/20/2010
    Work well. Docking a point because the controller's webpages load very slowly on my android browser.
    DANIEL -- san jose, CA   8/16/2010
    Does what it says — lets you control your lights from your iPhone, or any other device with a decent web browser.
    YOLANDA -- san diego, CA   6/4/2010
    Very Simple to administrate
    ADAM -- dartmouth, NS   5/18/2010
    5/5. This product works as described, and setup is a breeze.
