- What's Included
Voice Control Your Home
With Amazon Echo and Insteon, home control is easy and fun. Without lifting a finger, tell Alexa (the Amazon Echo voice interface) to control any of your Insteon devices, or even have Alexa set the mood with some music - and it happens - this is voice control that works! Whether your looking for convenience, or you just want to impress your family and friends - controlling your home with your voice is an experience, and sure to be a conversation piece for all.
The Insteon devices in this kit simply plug-in and are wirelessly controlled via the Insteon Hub. Plug in the Amazon Echo, sync it up with your Insteon Hub using the Amazon Echo App nd your voice is now your remote control. Using the included lamp modules just say, "Alexa, dim off the living room lamps" or using the included on/off module just say "Alexa turn on the fan" - a quick pulse of her light ring will glow, your lights are dimmed and your fan is on. The Echo does so much more - it plays music, reads the news, checks sports scores or the weather - instantly - and it is all controlled by your voice for hands-free convenience.
Controlling your house has never been so easy
Insteon Hub is an Insteon central controller for the rest of us; a simple and straightforward device that connects you to your home from any smartphone, or Apple Watch, anywhere in the world. Control Insteon light bulbs, wall switches, outlets, and thermostats at home or remotely and receive instant email or push notification alerts from motion, door and window, water leak, and smoke sensors while you’re away. Just start with the Hub, select the Insteon devices for your home and enjoy.
Even if every room in your home is lit with recessed lights, chandeliers and wall sconces, chances are, you still have a table lamp or two. And that's nothing to say for all of the plug-in appliances throughout your home. Insteon Plug-in Modules let you add remote control of all of these "less sophisticated" plug-in apparati.
While our plug-in modules do feature embedded on and off buttons, you don't really want to reach behind the couch to turn on a lamp. Thanks to Insteon, you can control your connected lamps and appliances from any wall switch, keypad, sensor - or even your smartphone when used with the Insteon Hub.
You might not have thought about it, but a good deal of your plug-in appliances become quite handy when automated. Automatically control table lamps with a motion sensor, turn on a box fan when a room gets too hot, even sound a siren when a leak is detected.
No matter what you want to control, there is an Insteon Plug-in Module for your needs. Dimming, On/Off and Outdoor On/Off modules are available to control everything from lava lamps in your parlor to holiday decorations in freezing rain.
Plug-in In-Line Control
Setup of your Insteon Plug-in device couldn't be easier. All you have to do is connect your lamp or appliance's power cord to the outlet on the bottom of the Insteon module and then connect the Insteon module to a regular unswitched power outlet.
Buttons When You Need Them
If you need to turn your connected device on or off when your remote controls aren't handy, you can just tap the up or down arrows on the side. Chances are, you'll find your Insteon Wall Switch or Smartphone a better remote control, though.
Indoor On/Off Module is equipped with a special integrated relay and grounded NEMA 5-15 outlet that lets you remotely control up to 15A appliances or 1800W of incandescent lighting.
Lamp Dimmer Module
This is no ordinary wall switch. Insteon Wall Switches can be remotely controlled from almost any device in your home: Sensors monitoring doors, windows, leaks and more, remotes, keypads and other wall switches throughout your home, even your smartphone when used with the Insteon Hub.
On/Off or Dimming
Whether you need the raw switching power of our 1,800W-relay-based On/Off Switch or the gentle dimming grace of our traditional Dimmer Switch, there's an Insteon Wall Switch to fit your switching needs.
One of the most powerful features of Insteon switches, Scenes let you control multiple devices simultaneously with a single tap. Brighten all of the lights in an entire room with a tap-and-hold or create infinite virtual multi-way switches.
No wall switch is more customizable. Change the paddle color to suit your décor needs. Swap out the LED light pipe for personalized colors. You can even custom-etch text onto the switch paddles for ease-of-use in multi-gang switch boxes.
Each Insteon LED Bulb is fully remote controllable; everything from on and off to brightness and scheduling can be had. You can even control these bulbs with your smartphone when used with the Insteon Hub.
Energy Efficient LED
When it comes to illumination, time to brightness, and efficiency, nothing beats modern solid-state LED lighting; that's why we've chosen LED for our Insteon Bulbs.
Flicker-free dimmable LED glory awaits you with Insteon LED Bulbs. We've designed these bulbs to dim from 1% to 100% for a full range of lighting moods.
We know that not every light fixture is well suited for traditional A19-style light bulbs. That's why we've made both traditional A19 and a larger PAR38 for recessed lights.
Amazon Echo works Alexa in conjunction with Insteon Hub to control a wide range of Insteon devices including Wall Switches, Plug-in Modules and LED Bulbs
- One Major Flaw Review by Heather
One Major Flaw
This entire kit was very easy to setup and use, but the app and/or hub have one major flaw that prevents me from putting my entire automation system on the hub.
When programming scheduled events into the app/hub there is no offset when using sunrise or sunset. In other words, you can't program an event for sunrise + 30 minutes, or sunset + 60 minutes.
Every other system I'm using allows that and this is a serious flaw that makes me subtract 1 star from the rating.
