The Hub works in combination with your router and smartphone or tablet to control Insteon devices in your home while you're there or when you're at work and on vacation. There’s no setup or configuration - it just works from the moment you plug it in.
Text message and email alerts from anywhere.
Create alerts by adding water leak sensors, motion sensors, door/window sensors and more. The Insteon Hub will send text and email alerts to you as well as anyone else you wish. And you can quickly check in on your home with your smartphone or tablet and ensure that every door and window is closed.
Your Eyes and Ears
Add WiFi Cameras for total home surveillance.
Wonder what triggered the motion sensor or just want to check in on the kids or your pets? Add a wireless camera and you'll see it all from your smartphone. The Insteon cameras feature pan/tilt control and night vision.
