The new INSTEON Hub connects you to your home from any smartphone or tablet. With the INSTEON Hub, you can control and monitor the status of your entire INSTEON network of devices including plug-in dimmers and on/off modules, motion and door/window sensors, built-in lights and even thermostats. An entire family of modules exists to provide control almost anywhere you need it.
You can get started with simple plug-in modules and control a tea pot or all of the lamps in your home. When you're ready, you can wire in Micro Modules behind your existing wall switches to turn any switch into an INSTEON-compatible smart switch. If your home features home-run wiring, DIN Rail modules can be ganged together to provide control for almost any hard-wired fixture. Peace of mind is easy to add, too, with the motion and door/window sensor options.
With the Hub, it's easy to program all the lights in a room to turn on when a door opens. You can use the motion sensor to control lights and even send email alerts to your smartphone or tablet in the event of an unexpected occupant.
You're not limited to controlling everything from your smartphone, either. Add a Wireless Mini Remote to your nightstand or coffee table and program it to control a single light or your entire house with a single button. Even your air conditioning is controllable from an INSTEON Thermostat. If your home has a system with 24VAC wiring, the INSTEON Thermostat can keep things cool or heat them up when needed. If your home has line-voltage heating or cooling, a wireless INSTEON Thermostat and Micro On/Off module can provide almost the same level of control and comfort.
Whatever your need and no matter the scope, INSTEON provides a reliable and expandable solution to your home control and automation needs. Just start with the Hub, select your devices and enjoy.

Review of 2242-422
Easy to install and works fine. A bit unusual one has to subscribe to connect.insteon.com in order to get the HUB set up even more as this service still runs in beta mode.
