- This is really upsetting -C'mon Insteon! Review by JackLando
This is really upsetting -C'mon Insteon!
This is really upsetting. I was disappointed that I had to buy a new 'HomeKit enabled' hub when I'm sure a software update to my existing hub would suffice (most other brands don't even need a hub). I've been stocking up my Insteon collection for years anticipating that Insteon would be the first to add additional connectivity and upgrades yet they appear to be the last -dead last! If Insteon can't get they're ducks in order, I'm afraid all of the years they spent being the only affordable DIY smart home system has been a waste. You guys should be owning this segment right now! What's up with your marketing dept?!? Seriously!! Love Jack

- Baffled Review by simdude
I'm lost as to how Smarthome can continue to sell this product. I'm even more amazed Apple won't force them to remove the Homekit label. I have started moving to Lutron at this point and the system is fast and reliable with great Siri support. Smarthome was one of the first out the door with this product to support Homekit and I think they simply rushed a product out to try and be the first. Unfortunately, this strategy is backfiring. I'm phasing out my Insteon and Zwave stuff now and will probably not be purchasing too much stuff from Smarthome in the future.

- Worst Hub, Terrible Customer Service Review by Alex
Worst Hub, Terrible Customer Service
After purchasing this hub and several Insteon products to control, I could not get any of them to work, ended up contacting Customer Service who initially didn't want to refund my money. After arguing, I was able to get it returned and refunded, but I continue to see them promoting this whizbang device as "high demand". I sincerely hope this is not the case, don't waste your time with it. There are tons of other options out there, and with the HOME app coming this fall, there will be no need for Insteon's fancy app.

- Long Wait for Nothing Review by Jarelgw
Long Wait for Nothing
I ordered the hub pro as soon as I heard that it was announced at CES 2015. Waited and waited. When it finally came I was very disappointed with it and ultimately returned it for a refund. I have too many Insteon devices at this point to jump ship to another platform at this time, so I guess I just won't benefit from Home Kit anytime soon. The standard Insteon Hubs work really well in comparison

- Bricked Review by Mike
I bought this last year, and it was working somewhat. About half the time, when turning the lights on or off via Siri, it would confirm that they were on/off when nothing actually happened. I think that was usually for the switches I have in a two-way switch setup, so I'd have to try calling the other switch in the set. Sometimes that would work. Sometimes I would still have to go into the app to turn it on, then off, then on again to get them to turn on. So it was buggy at best...
...then the it lost all of my devices on three separate occasions. I had manually put them back in twice, but I wasn't going to do it a third time. I tried a factory reset, but now the app doesn't even find the hub. I've tried different power outlets and connected it directly into my router. No luck. This is obviously a very buggy hub as evidenced by it being the only product referenced when you go to a basic URL of http://insteon.com/return. I'm a big fan of Insteon, and I'm invested with twenty or so light switches, 6 leak sensors, and a wireless camera. However, this "Pro" version of the hub doesn't support all of the devices and it doesn't even work very well for the ones it supports... and now it just seems to be bricked. I'm trying to contact support to see if there is any way to return it, but they haven't written back in about a week... so things aren't looking good.

- Insteon hub pro Review by Peter
Insteon hub pro
I have used both the hub 2 and the hub pro. I have found that the hub pro is useless working 25% of the time. I returned it for the Hub 2, which for my purposes operates all my switches, lights and cameras . It also integrates flawlessly with Amazon's Alexa. Do not know why they consider the Hub pro and upgrade...it does not run half the insteon devices the Hub 2 controls. The reliability of Alexa executing the commands is far more reliable than Siri under the Hub pro. Do not waste your money on the Hub Pro when half that amount will get you the Hub 2 and greater reliability with the Insteon App and Alexa

- Garbage Review by BD
This is a horrible product. Shifted over to WINK (which works) instead and sold all my Insteon products. ZWAVE and ZIGBEE from here on out with Lutron and WINK!

- Poor Product Review by Yankdp
This is the worst electronic product I have ever bought. At least once a week one of the schedules doesn't work. I only have three outside lights and a lamp in my living room in a small home. I want the lights for security. My wife and I came home Friday night and there were no lights on. My wife didn't say anything but I know she wasn't happy, I was pissed. It lost connection completely and I had to reboot the hub and set up the scenes and schedules again. I would say I'm disappointed but I'm embarrassed that I fell for this, I'm an electrical engineer!

- Don't Buy Review by Joe
Downloaded and installed the IOS app ok. Phone can't find hub. After a 1 hour 20 minute wait on hold, Tech support says the hub MUST be connected directly to my router. I have many ethernet devices connected via a switch, all working flawlessly. Rearranged to ensure the Insteon hub was directly connected to my router. The app still couldn't find the hub. Tech support said, "I'll be honest, we have a LOT of problems with this hub" So that's it, no other ideas just doesn't work. Waste of my time, hub pro and all the other stuff I bought goes back Monday.

- not ready Review by skywatcher
I really wanted to like this product. I have a house full of INSTEON switches and sensors, and the old hub has worked very well. However, this new hub just isn't reliable. I haven't had more than a few days operation without it having to be restarted, or, worse, a full reset and all the devices reconfigured. I've spent far more time futzing with it than it will ever save. When it works -- which happens from time to time -- it's great. Siri control of lights is really nice. But many devices are not supported. I'm hoping that firmware upgrades will improve its operation. The one upgrade that I did was problematic -- it wouldn't complete. I couldn't get a meaningful response from support, and in the end I tried it outside my firewall and then it upgraded fine. There are many, many wrinkles to be ironed out. I'm going to stick with my old hub.
