- What's Included
Voice control of your home works, and it has never been so easy - this kit is the perfect introduction for anyone! With the included Echo Dot, you’ll be able to use the Alexa app to import your Insteon devices through the included Insteon Hub via your home Wi-Fi connection. Within minutes your devices will be setup, and you’ll be able to use simple voice commands to start controlling the included Plug-in Dimmer Module and Plug-in On/Off Module. It’s as simple as saying:
“Alexa, dim the living room light”
“Alexa, turn on the living room fan”
Alexa takes your voice commands, sends them to the Insteon Hub, which triggers the Insteon devices and your desired action to take place – instantly. Once you get started, we know you’ll be back for more – add an Echo Dot to every room and fill your home with all kinds of home automation devices just waiting for your direction.
Use Echo Dot to switch on the lamp before getting out of bed, turn up the thermostat while reading in your favorite chair, or dim the lights from the couch to watch a movie—all without lifting a finger…or even raising your voice. Echo Dot works with smart home devices such as lights, switches, fans, thermostats, garage doors, sprinklers, and more. This kit includes an Insteon Hub, Insteon Pug-in Dimmer and Insteon Plug-in On/Off module - everything you need to get started with voice control of lights and appliances in your home. Echo Dot also works with products from WeMo, Philips Hue, LIFX, SmartThings, Insteon, Lutron, Nest, ecobee, Wink, Honeywell, Garageio, and more.
Insteon Hub is an Insteon central controller that connects you to your home from any smartphone, tablet or Apple Watch, anywhere in the world. It allows you to remotely control Insteon devices and receive instant email or push notification alerts from motion, door and window, water leak, and smoke sensors while you’re away. It also acts as an interface between the Echo Dot and your Insteon devices, allowing you to control Insteon light bulbs, wall switches, outlets, and thermostats with your voice.
If your home is lit with recessed lights, chandeliers and wall sconces, replace an existing in-wall switch with an Insteon In-Wall Dimmer Switch and you can add remote control of any of these lights. Not every room needs to be bright all the time. With an In-Wall Dimmer Switch, a customizable On-Level lets you pick how bright your lights are when you turn them on. Ramp Rates with the Dimmer Switch let you specify how quickly or slowly your lights turns on. You can control it all with your voice through Echo Dot.
With Echo Dot, you can control lights and small appliances that are controlled by an In-Wall Insteon On/Off Switch, using just your voice. By replacing an existing In-Wall Switch with the Insteon On/Off Switch, there's no more getting up, or reaching for a remote control, simply ask Alexa to turn things on and off at your convenience. Whether it is a light or fan directly connected to the Switch or a connected outlet that has a space heater, lava lamp, diffuser, wax lamp, neon light, or other plug-in gizmo - it can all be controlled with voice commands.

- Well worth it Review by Carlos
Well worth it
I've recently installed the Insteon Hub and Amazon Echo Dot in my home and couldn't be more pleased. The process was straight forward and the apps worked well to configure the system. I was able to integrate the Nest Thermostat as well as a couple of I-Home wall outlets to the Echo Dot and can now control a number of lighting circuits as well as the temperature with ease. As a side note, I didn't think that I would have much use for the Amazon Echo Dot as I would normally interface with the system via the apps, but have found that the Echo Dot makes the process even easier to use once set. I highly recommend it. If I can ever get the Starter Kit/Echo Dot package on sale again I'll order more for friends, they all comment on how well it works and that they love to have that in their homes as well.
