First off, Happy 4th of July! We have something extra special for you here at Smarthome today.
So, put your barbeques and pool parties on hold for a second because we are having a buy one get one free sale on some of our Insteon products! Plus, free shipping on purchases!
With all the amazing Insteon products on our site, it might be difficult to choose which products to buy, so we're here to help!
The first point we want to cover is, why should you invest in an Insteon ecosystem in the first place?
Whether you’re thinking of automating your home for the first time or you want to build out your smart ecosystem further, you should seriously consider going all-in with Insteon gear.
Why is that, though?
Well, unlike other smart home ecosystems, Insteon makes use of a dual-band network. This means signals can be sent wirelessly, but also over your home’s existing power lines. The combination of wireless and RF messaging gives this network redundancy that is not present in other ecosystems.
Devices in any automated home communicate with one another using a proprietary frequency. Wired Insteon devices also act as peers. This means that the more devices you add to the network, the stronger it becomes.
And what better way to build out that network than by stocking up on Insteon products during our 2-for-1 Fourth of July sale?
6 Ways with Insteon Sale: Buy One, Get One Free
Maybe you’re still not sure about Insteon and perhaps you’re even questioning why you should tie yourself into this ecosystem.
Maybe you’ve heard Insteon products are difficult to use. Nothing could be further from the truth. Regardless of your skill level with tech, all Insteon devices are straightforward to install and extremely user-friendly. Control options are diverse and the Insteon app is a breeze to use.
The other reason that might put you off investing in Insteon is the thought you’ll need to spend heavily to get going. Well, what better way to avoid that than by taking advantage of our Fourth of July sale?
If you’re looking for the best few pieces to get your home automation started, we have 6 suggestions for you right here.
You can check out the full range of Insteon devices right here for further inspiration but we’d urge you to start with a hub…
1) A Hub is The Heart of Your Home
If you want to build out a connected home in style, the Insteon Hub Central Controller is the perfect foundation. While this is not part of the sale, it is a necessity if you want a connected home.
With the hub in place, you can control your Insteon ecosystem using your smartphone, with voice commands or with a physical controller. Remote access is one of the primary benefits of adding the Hub Central Controller because it allows you to stay connected with your home, even when you're not home.
You’ll also be able to schedule devices to kick in at certain times. Creating scenes is a great way to group devices together and is simple in-app.
There are no security worries either since all communication is encrypted in both directions from the cloud. The wireless range has also been boosted by fully 50% in this newest iteration of the hub. The form factor is slimmer than ever, too.
Key Benefits of the Insteon Hub
- New and improved with enhanced range, slimline design, and set-up is less than 5 minutes
- Control your whole family of Insteon devices remotely
- Enabled for both Alexa and Google Assistant with a requisite smart speaker in place

2) Smarten Up Climate Control
There are many smart thermostats out there, so why should you place your trust in the Insteon Remote Control Wall Thermostat?
One of the leading advantages of this thermostat is that you’ll get everything you need and nothing you don’t. One of the core reasons for upgrading traditional thermostats is to increase the convenience factor. Unfortunately, many smart alternatives end up equally as tricky to use as those old and fiddly analogue dials. Insteon’s thermostat, by contrast, is extremely user-friendly and perfect for complete beginners.
With the home hub in place, you can control the climate in your smart home remotely. Add in an Echo device or Google Home smart speaker, and you can tweak the temperature using voice commands. If you don’t have a hub, you can control your thermostat on the device itself.
Also, this thermostat is designed to work with just about any heating or cooling system, so you shouldn’t struggle with compatibility issues.
You’ll also be able to trigger other devices in your Insteon ecosystem when the temperature reaches a predetermined level.
Make your life easier and save money at the same time with this highly affordable smart thermostat. Buy it during our Fourth of July sale will allow you to save big!
- Unbeatable price/performance ratio
- Works with a broad spread of HVAC systems including 2-stage systems
- Take charge with voice commands using your digital assistant of choice

3) Hit The Lights For Half The Price
You might be completely overwhelmed with the wealth of smart light options, so we’ve got a couple of ways for you to get started fuss-free.
The Insteon Remote Control Dimmer Switch is designed first and foremost to make your life easier. Rather than continually getting up and down to dim the lights, turn the lights off, or brighten the lights more, you can use your smartphone instead. If you have a smart speaker in the house, you can also use your digital assistant to turn the lighting up or down also.
You can customize the on/off brightness level, as well as the ramp rate so you can make your lights work for you.
Unlike a complete smart lighting set-up, this dimmer switch is quick and easy to install so you won’t be stiffed with an expensive bill from an electrician.
You will need a neutral wire in place and this switch is designed for incandescent loads to 600 watts, so make sure that it's appropriate for your needs. If so, you won’t find a sleeker and more intuitive dimmer switch on the market.
- Slash your electricity bill by running lights at lower levels of brightness
- Take advantage of the remote control or use voice commands
- Super-simple installation

If you don’t feel the need to fine-tune brightness levels but you still want to take charge of your lighting from a distance, the Insteon Remote Control On/Off Switch is the obvious choice. You don’t need to choose, though. With our Fourth of July deal, you can get both of them!
Whether you’re looking to control incandescent lighting or halogen bulbs, you can do so remotely and hands-free with this on/off switch. You’ll also be able to schedule devices to come on or off at preset times.
Functionality also extends to fans and other small appliances with a maximum load of 480 watts for incandescent loads. Power consumption is an energy efficient 0.67 watts.
While you won’t enjoy the same versatility the dimmer provides, this on/off switch makes a sound starting point if you’re just beginning your home automation journey.
- Control fluorescent lights and halogen lamps along with fans and other small appliances remotely
- Straightforward installation
- Toggle switch to match your existing design scheme finished in off-white

4) Trigger Insteon Devices When Motion Is Detected
If you want to activate other motion detection devices, such as lighting, within your Insteon ecosystem, the revamped Insteon Motion Sensor II lets you do that in style.
Easy to mount on a wall or to place on a unit, this sensor is extremely responsive at an impressive 30-foot range. Wireless, if you want to power this unit up by USB, there’s a power cord sold separately.
This sensor works particularly well in any area where lights tend to get left on by mistake. With occupancy sensing, you can smarten up your energy consumption and reduce those spiraling power bills.
While you’ll enjoy best performance if you have the hub set up, you can also connect these sensors to other Insteon devices hub-free.
If you feel the need to invest in several of these sensors, our Independence Day sale is the ideal way to do that. You can make significant savings on the sticker price then continue to save with lowered power bills. What’s not to love?
- The updated sensor comes with improved wireless capability and an even more compact form factor
- Capable of detecting motion through 90 degrees at a range of 30 feet
- Night mode stops lights being needlessly triggered during the day
