  • 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/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
    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/IR PRO 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

    • PleaseNote:
      (1) The ISY994i/IR PRO requires an INSTEON Serial PowerLinc Modem PLM (sold separately):
            • 2412S - PowerLinc - INSTEON Modem, Serial (no longer available but it is compatible)
            • 2413S - PowerLinc Modem - INSTEON Serial Interface (Dual-Band)

    • (2) 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.

    Took advantage of a great sales price before Christmas to upgrade an ISY-99i that had reached the end of its technological life (its firmware could no longer be upgraded although it worked without problem). The changeover was flawless and easy.

    Severely over rate device. I ordered one from Smarthome, plugged it in, and found out that you have to pay an additional $50 for each of the protocols. The web interface is very clunky and doesn't flow well. I spent a solid 2 weeks trying to get it to work without success. There are better products on the market for the money spent on this.

    Review of 12236

    This is the BEST product available for managing your Insteon network - nothing else comes close! I had the prior version, the 99i, and purchased this when I moved to a new home. I have over 50 Insteon devices and this makes programming them a breeze and do things that would be virtually impossible without such a great controller. The Universal Devices Forum has wonderful moderators who are incredibly helpful and the customer service from UDI is among the best I've ever received. The interface and programming may be challenging for some people. I'd say it is more geared toward home automation enthusiasts. It's not that it is difficult to learn and use, it's just that Grandma probably couldn't use it without a lot of help. If in doubt - BUY IT! You will not be disappointed.

    Review of 12236

    Over rated. The software is so buggy! Then again it is less buggy when compared to houselinc. I don't know why I'm having such a hard time. After adding a scene, the user interface didn't update...but somehow it did if you reconnect/login. Then there is the lockup and have to reset the device.

    Had a few "bumps" at the beginning, but the Customer Service provided by SMARTHOME and their affiliate Universal Devices. was OUTSTANDING. I'm using the Controller now and I'm Very pleased with it's performance. Considerably better than X10, especially the support. I will be adding some more Home Automation devices in the future. My sincere Thanks to SMARTHOME.

    Review of 12236

    I have been an ISY99i/IR/PRO user for over 5 years now. My only complaint is about me for not writing a rave review A+ 5 star review long before now. The ISY is an excellent product and their technical support is the best. I have have what could be considered a complicated installation with about 100 Insteon devices and a large number of scenes and programs. The ISY makes the management of everything so easy and i never have to do anything except easily upgrading to a new firmware version when I add brand new devices that did not exist when the previous version was released. I wish that everything I owned worked as well and was supported as well as the ISY.

    Review of 12236

    Love the ISY. Had used the OEM version with UPB until I realized that the UPB powerline interface was unreliable. Fortunately, it was when I was in testing mode and before I decided to replace all my old X-10 switches.

    I liked the device enough to explore Insteon and the ISY drove me to this set of automation devices. The only issue I would give this box is that it requires Java and doesn't have a Native app on either the Mac or PC. However, it does mean I can run the interface anywhere.

    I have MobiLinc Pro for control of the ISY on my Android and I'm happier than a pig in - well, you get the idea - I'm really happy with the results. Currently fleshing out the rest of my X10 switches with Insteon and will be adding more capabilities in the near future temp, camera, etc.

    Review of 12236

    I love the way this box 'just works' when it is set up. I have about 50 Insteon devices, and this box does useful things like turn on all my outside lights at sunset, turn some off at bed-time, and the rest at dawn. It handles some programming so that with one light switch I can do different things with on and off presses. It also handles IR commands so my TV remote can control the living room lighting. My wife is delighted!
    However, the thing it does best for me is make configuring your Insteon switch programming so much simpler than running round the house linking them, and forgetting what is controlled by what.
    I'll ding it for requiring Java, with its security risks, to run the control program. I'll also ding it for being very slow to program Insteon scenes, although I suspect that may just be the speed of the Insteon commands over the network.
