  • Remotely monitor and control your garage door

    Know if you accidentally left the garage door open and remotely close it if necessary. When the Insteon Garage Control & Status Kit is used with the Insteon Hub, you will always know whether you forgot to close the door to the garage.

    Remote Control

    Whether for convenience or security, your smart phone and tablet allow you to control your garage door from anywhere you may be through the Insteon App.

    Instant Alert

    With Insteon Garage Door Control & Status Kit, you can receive instant alerts via email or notifications the moment the door is opened. Requires the Insteon Hub and a home internet connection.

    Using Insteon automation

    You can link a button on a KeypadLinc as a status light to indicate whether or not your garage door is open and remotely open or close the garage door from other areas of your property using that button or another button on a KeypadLinc, SwitchLinc or Mini Remote.

    Add a WiFi Camera to Your Network

    Set up a WiFi Camera in your garage to provide you with 24/7 surveillance of your vehicles by viewing it via your smartphone or tablet and then close (or open) your garage door from the same screen.

    How It Works

    I/O Linc's output relay wires to your garage door motor just like your existing button, allowing you to remotely operate your garage. The included garage door sensor mounts to the garage door and is wired directly to I/O Linc's sensor input. Receive instant alerts when using the Insteon Hub (sold separately).

    Needed to Mod to work on new openers. Review by wired2work
    Needed to Mod to work on new openers.

    We recently move into a new house that I had new openers installed. The new openers switches are now longer standard N/O switches and are digital. My solution, since I have three doors, was to get another opener car remote, and add three pig tail wires to the switches that in the remote. Then connect those wires to the insteon modules. It works great, yes at some point I will need to change the battery, but it works..

    I've ordered this product hoping to control my garage door. After going thru two sets, i have not been able to detected it the Insteon Hub. Calling support was no help. They told me it was a bug and several people have been calling in. Now i have to wait for them to update me if it even going to work.

    Smarthome response: Sorry for the inconvenience, Michael. Not sure which app you were running (OS) but a few releases have come out that should have addressed the issue.

    Excellent product. Reliable Review by Vin
    Excellent product. Reliable

    I installed it a year ago on my gate about a year ago. Works perfect and reliable. I control it from my iPhone. My gate is over 200 feet away.

    Not dependable Review by Joe
    Not dependable

    Not a great product. Tech support wants to blame Universal Devices with ISY when their device was clearly defective. Got an RMA to return defective. Living on the east coast I have to wait a week at least to get replacement. Original order was overnight but even after using Insteon at both properties at cost of thousands they couldn't upgrade replacement shipping to 2nd day or overnight. They can afford to send it out expedited after spending thousands upon thousands between the two properties but nah...why have good customer service. Stick with Z-Wave or Zigbee and not from Smarthome / Insteon. Better customer service.

    Not compatible with LiftyMaster 8500 Review by Slick
    Not compatible with LiftyMaster 8500

    I just bought an Liftmaster 8500, unfortunately it's not compatible with the I/O linc. I was really sad as I cannot open my door with my insteon home automation. :o((

    Review of 74551

    Installation was easy. I have used other magnetic proximity devices in the past, and I've never seen anything work as well as these do. Setup was quick. I'm very pleased with them.

    Review of 74551

    This is an update to my earlier review where some of the parts were missing from the unit I purchased, most importantly the magnet bar half of the door sensor.

    I contacted Smarthome to return the unit that was missing some parts and the person on the phone was very helpful and issued me an RMA with return postage. It's been several weeks since they received the returned unit they even sent me a confirmation but I still haven't seen the actual refund posted to my CC account; hopefully soon.

    In the meantime, I found that for most applications, you're better off purchasing just an I/O Linc by itself, along with Smarthome Item # 7040, a normally-OPEN not normally closed as in this kit magnetic contact switch by Seco-Larm, and whatever length of two-conductor wire you need for connecting the I/O Linc to the contact switch and to your door opener. You save a lot of money this way, and also avoid the problem that other folks have mentioned where the I/O Linc reports incorrect status when queried by home automation controllers like the ISY series.

    Review of 74551 Review by B
    Review of 74551

    I bought two of these. Installed the first one without any issues. The second one was installed exactly the same way as the first one, on the same brand same generation garage door opener. Only this time, once installed, the wall mounted push button door opener did not work. I contacted Tech support and he suggested sending a replacement unit and did so. When the replacement unit arrived and swapped out, I had the same issue. I called Tech support again and this time, the person suggested checking the settings on the newest unit and comparing it with the settings on the unit that was working. Sure enough one of the settings was different and that was the difference.. Once I changed the settings, the unit worked properly. Wish the Tech guy I spoke to first suggested that, it would have saved me time and effort and Smarthome the cost of shipping the replacement unit to me the other one back as it was undoubtably the same issue... all good now
