  • Control Insteon and HomeKit Devices

    The HomeKit-enabled Insteon Hub allows Insteon devices to work the Apple HomeKit technology for home management. With the new Insteon+, you can control both Insteon devices and third-party HomeKit-enabled devices - all in one easy-to-use app.
    Remote Control

    Control Insteon connected lights and appliances alongside HomeKit-compatible products from your iPhone or iPod touch.

    Siri® Control

    Control Insteon connected lights and appliances alongside HomeKit-compatible products from your iPhone or iPod touch.

    Build Scenes

    Quickly and easily create scenes that let you control multiple devices simultaneously. Customize advanced features like On Level, too.

    Automate with Schedules

    Configure a single device to turn on and off at a specific time or create customized groups of devices that turn on and off at various times throughout the day.

    The New Insteon+ App for HomeKit

    We wanted to add some fun to the daily chore of managing your home's lights and devices; so why not make Insteon+ more fun to use than your light switches? With brand new controls and a greatly simplified user interface, Insteon+ sets the new standard for home control apps.

    Add

    It doesn't matter if your home is a single bedroom apartment or a multi-winged compound, Insteon+ makes adding devices, rooms, zones and more simple and straightforward.

    Insteon or HomeKit?

    With Insteon+, you can choose the best automation device for the task; add and control Insteon and HomeKit devices side-by-side. You can even mix and match Insteon and HomeKit devices in scenes and schedules.

    Rooms and Zones

    Keep track of devices in your home by building out rooms and then quickly switch between them with just a swipe. For really efficient control of large areas of your home, group rooms into zones like downstairs or outside.

    Multiple Houses?

    For the lucky few with multiple houses or the caring child helping improve the lives of your aging parents, add as many homes as you'd like and move in and out of them with ease.

    Control

    With Insteon+, you can control a wide range of devices including lights, appliances, door locks, garage doors and more. And because Insteon+ uses HomeKit technology, any HomeKit-enabled device will be right at home.

    Dimmable Lights

    Quickly brighten and dim your lights with a custom, ergonomic slide or increment and decrement with convenient buttons.

    Multi-Colored Lights*

    With an homage to a classic wheel-themed-game-show, add some color to your life with our multi-colored light control.

    *HomeKit-enabled color changing lights not yet available but Insteon+ will be ready when they are.

    On/Off Lights and Appliances

    Even the basics like On/Off devices get a new control with discrete on and off buttons.

    Ceiling Fans

    Control both the speed of your ceiling fan and the brightness of it's lamp. And if you have a lampless fan, we're smart enough to only show you fan speed.

    Garage Doors*

    Monitor and control your garage door and, if supported by your garage door controller, even be alerted to unexpected obstacles in it's path.

    *HomeKit-enabled garage door controllers are not yet available but Insteon+ will be ready when they are.

    Door Locks*

    Ensure you don't accidentally unlock your front door with a familiar slide to unlock gesture.


    *HomeKit-enabled door locks not yet available but Insteon+ will be ready when they are.

    Enjoy

    With Insteon+, we've included features that make your daily home control tasks effortless; everything from guest users to voice control of devices and scenes with Siri.

    Your Wish is Her Command

    Talk to your home and let your home talk back with Siri control of devices and scenes. Like an episode of the Waltons, you can finally say, "goodnight" to your house and have it react in kind.

    Dashboard

    Your home is always at your fingertips with Dashboard; see at-a-glance which lights you've left on or if the doors are secure. Add in your favorite devices and scenes and you might never need to leave.

    Be Your Guest

    If your friends and family have an iPhone or iPod touch, they're just an Apple ID away from guest access to your home. Guests can control devices and scenes but can't make changes to your meticulously crafted home configuration.

    Compatability

    If you're just getting started, there's a wide array of Insteon devices that work with the new HomeKit-enabled Insteon Hub. And if your home is full of Insteon already, there's no need to replace all of your existing Insteon devices.

    Requires Insteon+ or other HomeKit-compatible application. Insteon Hub enables Insteon devices to work with HomeKit technology. HomeKit requires an iPhone or iPod touch with iOS 8.1 or later.

    Try with the IOS Home App Review by Steve
    Try with the IOS Home App
    Rating

    I have had the Insteon Hub for HomeKit for what seems like a very long time, now. It was called the Hub Pro when I bought it, and its compatibility with various Apple devices pushed me in that direction vs. the less expensive Insteon Hub. As many reviews have pointed out, it is less than a fully implemented product in many ways. On the other hand when you can use Siri on your watch or iPhone, it is magic, and that works much if not most of the time. It is a good way to impress dinner guests!

    Much of the understandable frustration with the Hub for HomeKit relates to the very buggy Insteon+ app. During a recent call to Insteon tech support, who in general are great and try hard to support a buggy product, one chap suggested abandoning the Insteon+ app and using the standard IOS Home app instead. I tried it and haven’t gone back. It is much easier to set up rooms, favorite scenes, etc. and integrates with the Home app on the Apple Watch and the iPhone Control Center (the thing you get when you swipe up from the bottom). Still a bit of a pain adding new devices, and it does not directly support wireless controllers like the 4-scene Mini remote, but that can be programmed manually if needed.

    Even with the IOS Home app, the Hub for HomeKit is still not perfect, but I am a lot more comfortable now that I can now show my wife how to control the lights in the house from her phone and watch and not regret it.

    Great Potential lost by a non-responsive, careless company Review by James
    Great Potential lost by a non-responsive, careless company
    Rating

    I've had this hub since Sept 2016. I had high hopes. With all of the HomeKit products on the market, Instead has a lot of potential with its communication protocols and variety of products. After all of this time, they haven't increased the number of supported devices for the Hub Pro. Also, there are TONS of bugs and no software updates, even after several emails and support request. Often, support doesn't even respond to my emails. Find a more reliable product. DO NOT buy Insteon. It regularly gets state wrong, reporting devices are on when they are actually off. (Which makes remote control completely useless) Also, I turn devices on and they often default to 0%. Why would I turn a light on and choose 0% brightness??

    Awesome homekit hub! Review by SB
    Awesome homekit hub!
    Rating

    I have used, recommended and installed a few of these and they are all operating great. I'm disabled and rely on voice commands for automation. This works great so far and the home kit will work even if the internet is out as long as my router is still powered on. I have used it with lamp modules, fanlinc, wall dimmers, wall on/off, thermostat, and plug in modules. Besides the occasional Siri misunderstanding, it has not failed once in almost 2 years. The setup could be streamlined but i think that it has to do with Insteon being an early home kit platform.

    Insteon Review by P

    Rating

    Product installed with paddle dimmers, in-line dimmers and outlets. Works perfect for the use intended in the two rooms I most needed the system due to how the house was originally wired. I'll likely hold off wiring other rooms for purpose of whole house automation until I understand the products' life cycle, given all of the reviews I've read.

    I found the documentation is not always the best or consistent between the various products but was able to figure it out. In general pleased with the products. Please stay tuned, I will follow up with periodic review(s). P

    Older Home, Works Great Review by Randy
    Older Home, Works Great
    Rating

    I had no other option but to go with Insteon. I have an older home thus in my wiring, I do not have a "common" wire. I looked at the reviews and very sceptical of this purchase and thought I would give it a shot. I am glad I did. Insteon seams to be the only company that supports 2-wire installation with wall mount dimmer rocker switch. Since buying this hub I have replace every switch with the Insteon 2-wire dimmers but not without a few problems.

    The instructions for pairing is a little wack. In order to pair I have to push the switch till it flashes green. Then go to the hub and do the same. They both beep but fail to sync. Then I have to hold the sync button on the hub till it turns green. Of course I have to go back to the switch, hold it till it turns green and beeps. Not a real big deal, it's just I have to do this 2 or more times to get it to sync.

    I was also a little put off by the manuel does not include that it will work with led lights. I took a gamble and bought led dimmable lights and they work great!

    I did try the wall plugins but they failed to sync so I had to return them.

    Overall I am thrilled with my purchase. If Insteon comes out with more connective devices that will sync with the HomeKit hub, I will definitely purchase as needed.

    Rating

    Insteon seems to have abandoned this hub pro as there are issues since IOS 10 Home app came out in 2016. "no response" issues with the home app and insteon+ app for IOS has issues. Still as of April 2017 not a peep from Insteon on getting this fixed to be usable with IOS 10 and HomeKit Home App. I have a huge investment in 25+ wall switches and dimmers that don't work properly and have already replace my plug in switches with home kit designed plugs that work as intended.

    Unloved Product == Unloved Customers Review by Lou
    Unloved Product == Unloved Customers
    Rating

    Here are the problems with the Hub for HomeKit:

    1. The documentation (quick start guide) in the box is flat out wrong and misleading. It instructs users to download the Insteon+ app from the App Store and pair it with the Hub. Doesn't pair. The app is so stale as to be pathetic, but even worse is that it is **not to be used with this product**, according to Tech Support. Instead, the Apple Home app should be used to directly add the Hub to your Home (which works). Hours wasted.

    2. Upgrading from basic Hub: Insteon maintains info about your controlled devices in the cloud, but the insanely stupid software design does not allow you to log in if your old Hub is offline (mine just smoked itself), so you have to ask Tech Support to delete your account to "forget" the device pairings with the now defunct Hub. Then you have to FACTORY RESET all your Insteon devices so they will forget their pairing with the old, fried Hub. Then, pair all your devices using manual pairing with the new Hub. Then you can add them to the Apple Home app.

    The fact that the website info for this product is WRONG, the documentation in the box is WRONG, and nobody at SmartHome gives a d*mn is just pathetic. So sorry I invested in a lot of Insteon hardware. If they are not going to support the product enthusiastically, they should just pull it from the market.

    The actual Hub for HomeKit works okay, but does not support all Insteon devices and features. They should be actively working with Apple to ensure full compatibility with HomeKit. But wait, that would require someone at SmartHome to care.

    Instead Hub for Homekit- Very Disappointing Review by Kenneth
    Instead Hub for Homekit- Very Disappointing
    Rating

    Having been a huge fan of Insteon and Smarthome products for over a decade, and having the products throughout my home, I recently was interested in adding HomeKit integration and replacing a light switch that had failed. The experience was very disappointing. Repeated attempts to get the hub working, including factory resetting 3x failed. Calling support on a Saturday during published working hours got a voicemail saying they are closed for Independence Day (that was 8 months ago). I tried again during the week. The technician found that my new hub had very down-level firmware. We jumped through several hoops to get that updated, and still it could not see my devices. The next option was to manually pull my switches and input the codes manually into the hub- very 1990s- not up to the competition. I returned the hub and instead installed Lutron switches and iDevice lamp modules- which are all working beautifully and with no manual setup required. I can't recommend the hub at all- the quality of the physical product, support issues, downlevel firmware, and fallback to manual entry just aren't worthy of any money or competitive with the marketplace.

    Works Well Review by FTI76

    Rating

    Insteon\Smarthome really should update their documentation if they want to sell this product and not get trashed on their reviews.

    The Hubs works perfectly, but you cannot use the Insteon App with iOS10. You need to add the hub via the iOS10 Home app. Then you need to manually pair the switches to the hub by pressing the pairing button on the hub, and then the pairing button on the insteon+ device. All configurations need to be done via the iOS10 Home app. It could be a hassle to do this pairing process for many devices but in theory it is a one time setup.

    Insteon Hub for Homekit lack of legacy supported appliances Review by Al
    Insteon Hub for Homekit lack of legacy supported appliances
    Rating

    This was a disappointing purchase, while I am keeping the hub it has less functionality than expected or implied.

    Insteon Hub Homekit DOES NOT support the Leak Sensor or Smoke Bridge but the original Insteon does. I bought this hoping to have one hub for both Insteon Devices and Homekit but that appears not to be possible. Maybe one day??? I cannot believe it will stay this way.

    I am keeping both hubs since they work and I need all my appliances. However the SmartHome store was not clear about loss of functionality.

    SmartHome says ..."Control and Manage Insteon and HomeKit Devices from your Smartphone"

    SmartHome should say "Control and Manage Some of Insteon and all of HomeKit Devices from your Smartphone"

    So 2-stars for lack or clarity in advertising but 4 stars on technology
