  • What's Included
  • The ISY994i/IR PRO 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/IR PRO is your controller.

    The ISY994i/IR PRO supports up to 1,024 devices and scenes and a maximum of 1,000 programs. The ISY994i/IR PRO 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. The IR model allows you to program your infrared universal remote to control all your Insteon/X10 devices and scenes. The PRO model extends the capabilities of the ISY for extremely large installations.

    Insteon Control
    This kit includes an Insteon Dual-Band PLM Serial Interface, allowing for direct communication with your existing Insteon network from the ISY-994i/IR 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:
    • IR Control - Control all your Insteon/X10 devices with any infrared universal remote (RC5-compatible)
    • 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

    • 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/IR PRO 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/IR PRO 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 ISY994i/IR PRO 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.

    Excellent Controller Review by John
    Excellent Controller

    Been using the ISY994i Pro for over a year. It was easy to set up and has performed exceptionally well. The program documentation is good, although it could be improved for the novice skill level. Of the three different controllers I have tried, this is by far the best and meets all my needs. Well done Universal Devices!

    Have a fairly extensive collection of Insteon devices. This controller allows complete control of everything in your system. It is very well supported by a community of users AND by the manufacturer.

    Review of 12236db

    Extremely impressed so far!!! Have worked with HouseLinc and moved to Indigo 6, since I wanted the software to run on Mac platform. Had several issues with devices not responding or slow responding or loss of communication completely with device. With the ISY, responses are super quick. Love it!!! Still need to get use to some of the programing, I see a few flaws, but it may be me. One issue is I previously had my exterior lights turn on every night except 31 Oct. Have not found how to block out that one day as of yet. Another feature I lost after shutting down HouseLinc is the ability to minimize to 2% the backlights of my keypads during the day and turn up to 10% at night. Love the product and ready to learn more....

    Review of 12236db

    I had an inoperable system after 5 days and suspected the ISY was my problem. I returned the device because I was reaching the end of my 30 No Hassle Return period. I may reorder after I return from a lengthy trip because I still hope that the Smarthome/Insteon solution is going to work.

    Review of 12236db

    First PLM would not communicate, replacement works as advertised. Interface is OK, but has some usability issues (i.e. setting clock to 24 hr does not change the programming interface. I have not done any complex programming, but works well so far for simple things.

    Review of 12236db

    Fantastic! There are few products that are so easy to install and use. The instructions for connecting the parts to the router were clear. The software ran and continues to run well. It was intuitive and easy to understand. Devices linked hassle free. Scenes were easy to setup. Writing programs is simple and virtually error proof.

    Within the first 2 hours I had the controller running, three wall dimmer switches installed, and two scenes and three programs up and running. That evening we enjoyed having the den lights come on 20 minutes prior to sunset, then dim at 7:30, then shut down at 10PM.

    Next day I installed several more dimer switches and placed a large order for switches and sensors. Have two thermostats to install all Insteon gear and directions read clear and simple. Can't wait to wake up to a warm house after saving money all night long!

    Couple of suggestions:

    1 Buy a UPB Phase coupler. I purchased the one that mounts right in the circuit breaker box rails. Installation was a snap but the documentation was not great. See my review at that product. Once installed, it put an end to the intermittent lose of contact between the controller, and switches at the other end of the house.

    2 Order one of those little hand held 4 button controllers if you want to run programs change groups of lights for a scene when you don't have your phone handy. I just ordered a few and wish I had known to order them with the controller. One for the bedroom and one for the living area, so anyone can pick it up and control a group of lights kids, in-laws.

    3 If you are wiring in switches for the first time, watch some YouTube videos on the subject first. Understanding how light switches are wired up will help you a bunch. Note that the white wire on the Insteon switches must be hooked up, but is not connected to regular wall switches Insteon switches need power to run the internal electronics; standard wall switches do not.

    4 Three way switches are much more complex to wire up and understand with Insteon than they are with standard switches. A good manual on just that subject would be nice hint hint Smarthome. Smarthome does not offer a three way that means two switches that control one fixture Insteon switch. You cannot use the standard Insteon switch or dimmer in place of a three way switch. It would be great if Smarthome introduced one and it would save a lot of hassle and time for those wishing to replace three way switches.

    5 As soon as you have the controller running, buy the App, Mobil Linc. It is easy to set up and once installed on your phone, gives you total control of the Insteon devices and programs you have installed. Very cool App.

    NICE PRODUCT Smarthome! This is one of the top 5 easiest, and most delivers on promised performance, of any product I have purchased!

    Nice product... takes a little getting use to programming... the forums are a great source of info. Would be nice to have a "wait" command based on a variable.
