  • What's Included
  • The ISY994i is one of the most advanced INSTEON controllers on the market and has numerous features to satisfy the most advanced DIY'er or seasoned home control enthusiast. If you need unbridled control, the ISY994i is your controller.

    The ISY994i supports up to 256 devices and scenes, and a maximum of 300 programs. The ISY994i controller is able to configure and program INSTEON devices using INSTEON native protocols and specifications. This allows it to directly write to INSTEON devices internally instead of just in the controller, creating a more robust network. You can set up timer events and custom event triggers, as well as monitor and control all the INSTEON-compatible devices in your home from any web-browser anywhere in the world. Now you can check if the lights in your house were left on and remotely control them from your computer at the office.

    INSTEON Control
    This kit includes an INSTEON Dual-Band PLM Serial Interface, allowing for direct communication with your existing INSTEON network from the ISY-99i controller. The PLM features built-in dual-band technology that sends and receives INSTEON signals via powerline and radio frequency (RF), so it doubles as an Access Point. This makes it ideal for new INSTEON installs if you have or plan to use an RF-only INSTEON-compatible devices like a remote, thermostat, motion sensor or contact sensor.

    Additional Features:
    • Control other network-enabled devices using an optional Network Module (RS-232 devices can be controlled using an ELK IP232 or Global Cache GC-100 and more)
    • Can be field upgraded to IR platform

    • Extends the capabilities of the ISY99i Series
    • An expansion slot which could be utilized to install and support other protocols such as a Zigbee
    • Increased code memory to support additional communications drivers
    • Native support for Open ADR out of the box

    • Please Note:
    • The ISY994i does not require a power supply when used with a PLM which supplies power via the RJ-45 port (for example, PLM model #2412S). ISY994i does provide a port for an optional AC adapter for instances where the PLM does not supply power, or the user prefers to supply power independent of the PLM (for example, PLM model #2413S).

    Using any Java-enabled web browser, the ISY-994i gives you the ability to control, monitor, and configure all INSTEON-compatible devices from any web-browser anywhere in the world. Best of all, no software is needed to gain access to your INSTEON network. Simply bring up a browser and type in the URL of your Home Automation Controller.

    Review of 12237db

    I purchased one of these units as a replacement for a dedicated PC running Smarthome's HouseLinc software. When migrating the Insteon setup in my home from HouseLinc over to the ISY unit, I discovered what I consider to be a serious shortcoming in the ISY vs. HouseLinc.

    Within the Insteon specification, a device may participate in a scene in one of three ways: As a controller only, as a responder only, and both as a controller and responder. When defining a scene in HouseLinc, two check-boxes are provided for each device within the scene -- one for the device to act as a controller within the scene and one for the device to act as a responder. If the device is to act as BOTH a controller and responder, you check both boxes. This last mode is often used for multi-way control of a load from buttons on multiple KeypadLinc or wall-paddle units.

    However, the ISY unit supports only two of those three modes -- as a responder, and as both a controller and responder. There is no support for having a device participate as a controller only. Every device must participate as at least a responder, with the option of also participating as a controller. This is problematic if, for example, you want to define a scene where a button on multiple KeypadLinc units controls an IOLinc connected to a garage door opener. In that case, you don't want the light on the second keypad's button to be controlled by the first keypad's button or vice-versa -- you want the lights to be controlled by the status of the IOLinc's sensor only.

    I corresponded with ISY tech support on this issue and they said the way to get around it would be to define two separate scenes, one that contains KeypadLinc A button and the garage door IOLinc, and another that contains KeypadLinc B button and the garage door IOLinc. While this might be manageable for two KeypadLincs, it quickly becomes unmanageable if you have, say, five or six KeypadLincs throughout the house that you want to control the garage door from you would need to define and maintain five or six separate scenes, one for each KeypadLinc.

    Kudos to Smarthome's HouseLinc software developers for correctly implementing the Insteon specification within their software. I was surprised and disappointed that the developers at ISY apparently do not understand this aspect of the specification, particularly for a product that costs several hundred dollars vs. the FREE ! HouseLinc software.

    Excelent product. It works as described, In my case I need to spend some time reading the user manual before installation and programming. Its been approximately a month since installed and so far never failed. I gave 4 stars since would be great to have a wireless connection to the home LAN (only ethernet port is available).

    Definitely a learning curve to this one. I'd like to see both the programming "language" become more robust and the web based GUI be HTML5 based rather than java. BUT, it will do exactly what it says it will! Definitely a great addition to your home automation.

    I purchased this controller to interface with my Elk Security System. If you want to program your lighting based on trigger events from the Elk Security System then you MUST purchase an additional "Elk Software Module" from Universal Devices. The price for this Module is $99. The setup is easy and straight forward using the instructions from Smarthome. The unit is work perfectly.
