    Nonexistent technical support Review by Engineer
    Nonexistent technical support

    This review encompasses the hub and the InsteOn support. The one star is for InsteOn support, although I wasn't able to make the my InsteOn setup work. Very little information is available in the manual and online.

    I purchased the hub, the garage door opener, and a range extender in hopes to establish communications between InsteOn hub and the InsteOn garage door opener. Supposedly, InsteOn hub uses an AC line for communications with the garage door opener and for whatever reason the hub did not see the garage door opener. I purchased the range extender, as was recommendation by the InsteOn support for this particular problem. As I mentioned, very little information is available about how exactly the communication works. Supposedly, the range extender would establish a wireless communication with the hub, and then AC line communication with the garage door opener. But for some reason, despite the wireless nature of communications, the link to the hub depended on which outlet I would plug the extender - in some outlets the range extender talked to the hub, and in others in didn't (all within the same distance range).

    I tried email support, and even drew a helpful diagram. The person simply responded asking to call them. Well, I called. And I waited. I hang up after half hour of waiting. Then I called again. And I waited for half hour again. Then I emailed the customer service and asked to call my cell when they could. And then I have not heard from InsteOn ever again. So, I spent $200 on the garage door opener, the hub, and the range extender, wasted about a day of my time with no avail.

    Smarthome response Sorry to hear about the issues you describe. The range extender usually solves communication issues. It's possible that your hub may have been plugged into a power strip which in some cases impedes signal strength (powerline signaling anyway). Obviously since the garage door controller is powerline-only the range extender should have significantly boosted the powerline signal. Sounds like we failed on the support side as well. Sorry to hear. Please do try contacting us again and we'll make sure your experience is much better.

    Unreliable, needs a lot of work Review by DIGITALUnderworld
    Unreliable, needs a lot of work

    While I like the idea of running my house off this device instead of a computer, it is so unreliable it presents more headaches than it is worth. The setup is awful and if you try (what most people do) reset the system you only get your self deeper into issues requiring a call to support to be put on hold. The system does not allow smart outlets, etc. to connect consistently. Reminds me of the early days of X10 and their terrible software/hardware. Unless your willing to spend an enormous amount of time figuring this out and maintaining it, I would wait till a real company like Google or Apple who put real development effort into their products comes out with a true home automation solution. Smarthome markets their products well, but fall short on delivering those promised features.

    Review of 2242-222r Review by Jim Reuter
    Review of 2242-222r

    Just got one of these. The product looked like new, original packaging and everything.

    Positives: trivial to install. Works great with my two newest dual band switches.

    Bonus: I didn't know ahead of time that this model also serves as a HouseLinc interface, so now I can use that too.

    Small Negative: Phone app configuration and HouseLinc configuration are independent - they have to be set up separately.

    Big Negative: It only detects the two newest dual band 2477D switches. I cannot detect any of my old 2476D switches v2.5 vintage, so most of my system and all the complex scenes are unusable by this, at least so far.

    Much better than former 2412?. No hub connection problems. All devices available from remote locations.

    Great product if you need to boost the
    RF signal as I did. Simply plug it in and go, setup time was shorter than opening the box.

    Review of 2242-222r

    All my Insteon purchases have been good. Easy to configure and the new iphone upgrade to support multiple locations is very good. Great customer service for a few minor questions.

    Review of 2242-222r

    For my purposes and as installed the unit is working well. I would have given 5 stars, but I do not like the default requirement for connecting through an external service. I was able to configure directly from the built-in web interface without utilizing the external service, but this is not something an uniformed user could perform.

    Don't be scared by refurbished products. This hub is in perfect working condition, was easy to setup, and is performing well with the iPhone app.

    Review of 2242-222r

    This was replacement hub for an outdated hub that I bought new. I would have expected to receive a new rather than refurbished hub. Also, the replacement hub does not communicate with older Insteon devices. Seems to me everything would be backwards compatible since this was replaced at the urging of Smarthome.

    Most of the times not able to connect to my insteon bulb. The app shows the yellow color in the status, that might be indicating "Unknown"
