  • What's Included
  • The USB Insteon PowerLinc Modem is a USB-based home automation interface that allows PC- and hardware-based automation controllers to control Insteon-compatible lights, appliances, heating/air conditioning systems and alarm systems directly via the Insteon network. The dual-band interface sends and receives both powerline and radio frequency (RF) Insteon signals, so it doubles as an Access Point. This makes it ideal for new Insteon installations if you have or plane to use an RF-only Insteon-compatible remote, thermostat, motion sensor and contact sensor. The RF signal can bypass electrical noise or attenuation near the PC and it pulls many of the "distant" Insteon devices one hop closer, which can expand the size of potential installations into even larger homes and commercial buildings.

    New features:

    • Built-in Dual-Band with RF function, acts like an Access Point for phase bridging and RF to/from power line
    • 1023 links (compared to around 800 links previously)
    • Added a beep sounder
    • Red/Green LED light
    • Supports faster reading and writing of the PLM's database by another controller
    • Much lighter weight
    • No pass-through outlet

    Please Note: The controller connected to the USB Insteon PowerLinc Modem must remain powered on and running the controller program connected to the controller or host at all times of usage. Additionally, the dual-band interface does not supply power to external devices.

    This works fine, but wish it did not need to extra serial driver for Mac OS X. My old 2414 did not need it. Just one more piece of software to keep updated.

    I almost forgot. My current software doesn't support the new PowerLink Modem so there's another 80 bucks for an upgrade.

    This company is NOT supporting its existing customers. Its all about The Money

    This is a rip-off.
    I've spent hunderds of dollars on X-10 and Insteon products and if I buy a new interface it no longer works with my current PowerLinc Controller?!
    ANd the new controller has fewer features????

    Haven't you heard about firmware updates?
    Or backward compatibilty?

    If my company were to put out products that were 100% NOT compatible with older products we'd be out of business.

    And now I'm hoping for the same thing for Insteon.

    Used this modem to replace a Lynx X10 modem and change over to Insteon. Handles my older X10 and now Insteon signals nicely. Setup was a breeze with mSanders Insteon to Homeseer plugin.

    This modem seems to work fine. I was disappointed that it doesn't feature a "pass through" electrical outlet. I didn't notice this before I ordered it.
