- Works well enough Review by Gregg
Works well enough
I've had mine for about six years. I really tried to use the SmartHome Insteon controller but it is very limited. I now use a Universal Devices isy994i.
I have set up a scene that unlocks the door when the garage door opens. I can control all of my devices from anywhere using the ISY Portal
I also set up a control using IFTTT and the ISY Portal so that I can send a text message to un/lock the door. Unfortunately IFTTT doesn't get around to responding to the text for 1-3 hours (yes, one to three hours).
Mine came with a couple of key fobs. Recently I found one wasn't working. Poor manufacturing ... cold solder joint. Fortunately, I could fix it.
Good battery life!
Smarthome needs to get their act together. They have some great ideas and pretty good technology, but they have little follow through:eg. fixing bugs and writing robust software. It's like, "oooh! we came out with a cool product! OK, done with that and we're bored with it. Let's do something else." They have a habit of burning first adopters.

- only wireline - works often but not always Review by Wido
only wireline - works often but not always
This works - most of the time. At first it didn't, then when I called support, after they logged into the hub, it started to work. When I asked what they had done - nothing, apparently it just started working.
I was told that this device does not connect to the hub via RF, wireline only - so it's susceptible to noise etc, and probably also the reason why it does not always work.
Curious thing: I had to reset my hub to change the username, and when I reconfigured everything, again the lock controller did not work. I took 1-2 hours and it started working again - not sure what happened in that time.

- Works as Advertised Review by Rick
Works as Advertised
The controller does what it is supposed to do - locks and unlocks. Setup on the Insteon hub was as expected. One thing to note is that it cannot be part of a scene (at least not that I have been able to figure out).

- good thing it doesn't work with Echo Review by Michael
good thing it doesn't work with Echo
I haven't used this product, but wanted to responsd to Jelmore's review. I would be alarmed if any lock controller worked with Echo right now. Echo has little or no security built in and will respond to anyone. It's quite possible that if any stranger in the know could stand outside by a door or window and yell loudly enough, Echo would happily unlock the door for them.

- WARNING - Apple Smartphones Only Review by James
WARNING - Apple Smartphones Only
i purchased this controller one week ago and only after I'd paired it with the MiLock deadbolt did I understand that this will not connect to the Insteon Hub using the Android smartphone app.
Very disappointing and really, really hard to understand (the PHONE is the incompatibility?).
The product description made me feel so stupid, especially after spending an hour trying to add the controller and both devices just sit and blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink - blink.
Product description needs to be clear that this is useless to Android Smartphone users.

- This product is awesome! Review by Kenwin
This product is awesome!
Problem solve and it's resolved. I thought this might not work, but after 10 minutes (might take asking a brother or friend like me) who knows what to try and not (but I doubt you can break this-it plugs into the wall just make sure there's one not being used near your front door). Also, the hub should be near by.
Make it work! It's amazing I lock and unlock from around the city, country and world.

- Works great Review by alvino
This works very well with Indigo. My only complaint would be that it's yet another plugin. I would rather have a version that can be hardwired in a J-box and doesn't consume another outlet.
