- Connect the INSTEON Hub into an available port on your router with the included network cable.
- With your iPhone, connect to INSTEON Hub following the instructions in the manual.
- Now using your iPhone create a "front door" room within INSTEON Hub and link your porch light.
- Install and setup your IP camera following the camera instructions.
- Once you have confirmed your camera is viewable online, go to the front door room in INSTEON Hub and
- Now you can view and control the camera and light from a single page on your iPhone or web-enabled device.
Before installing INSTEON wall switches and keypads be sure to check that you have neutral wires available behind your existing switches. These are commonly a group of white wires that are capped off in the back of the junction box.
