  • 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

    For Insteon control this device must be paried with an Insteon Dual-Band PLM Serial Interface. The PLM allows for direct communication with your existing Insteon network from the ISY994i 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 Mini Remote, Thermostat, Motion Sensor, Contact Sensor.

    Extends the capabilities of the ISY994i Series

    • An expansion slot which could be utilized to install and support other protocols such as a Zigbee or Z-Wave
    • 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)
    • Non IR models can be field upgraded to IR platform

    Please Note

    The ISY994i requires an Insteon Serial PowerLinc Modem PLM (sold separately) or available as a Kit.

    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 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.

    Amazing little device Review by David

    Greatest purchase I ever made. Turbo charges your Insteon system without needing to leave a full computer server running. (It's also FAST.) If you're technically-inclined, this is the device for you. Some basic programming knowledge (if/then/else) is helpful to setting this up.

    Works well, easy upgrade Review by Kevin

    I purchased this to replace an obsolete ISY99, the upgrade process was relatively easy, I was able to migrate all programs and modules to the new hardware.

    The unit is about as reliable as the original, I have had a couple of cases where the controller would "freeze" (stop running programs), the ISY994 power brick is plugged into a UPS, so it's not a power quality issue.

    Writing programs with the web interface is easier than it appears at first glance, and the ISY forums are a big help when you do get stuck.

    This is an excellent product! I was not wanting to keep a MacPro running 24/7 just to manage my Insteon network of about 25 devices. The set up Wiki is excellent, and after you add the first device and a schedule, all the others are extremely easy. It automatically added all my Insteon devices and links making installation easier.

    I am not sure why some reviewers think it is difficult. I am not a programmer!

    It took me about an hour to set up my entire Insteon system.

    Excellent product. Takes a little while to get used to the setup, but really simplifies your installation. I tried to homebrew with a RaspberryPi, but life is too short to be messing around with the link tables and Insteon protocol. The guys at Universal Devices have done all the heavy lifting, so all you need to do say what you want and it implements it. Web interface to smartphone and IPad are cool.

    As a DIY, even I managed to muddle through the installation with the assistance of Smarthome customer care.

    Love the interface and flexibility. And a good value for the dollar. However, there does not appear a way to update the devices supported. I purchased two 2473SWH's, that much to my surprise were not supported by the ISY994i, and there was not an apparent way to upgrade the ISY994i, or install the drivers for the two 2473SWH's.

    It's a bit funky to understand the state machine like programming but it is rock solid once you get your programs refined. I would not recommend it for anyone that does not appreciate/enjoy programming.
