  • 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.

    I purchased this device to "talk with my EZFlora that was acting up". It was not very hard to get going once I had all the pieces.

    I recently replaced my 2414U with the 2413U. I had read good things about the 2413U and my hopes were realized. This is a very reliable module that works very well with the Indigo control software.

    The main reason for my switch was that I was getting spurious power fail errors with the 2414U. They would occur a sporadic times, usually when I was doing something intensive with the iMac that it was connected to. With the 2413U I have seen NO power fail errors at all!

    Painless install. Works well with Indigo software on the Mac. You're not really supposed to put an extension on the USB cable for the best signal but I've got a 6 oot extension and I've not had any problems at all. There is a slight "chirp" sound when linking to other units but it only happens during set-up and is inconsequential.
