This kit features Home Control Assistant (HCA) Plus V.12 software and 3 INSTEON devices including an INSTEON Dual-Band PowerLinc Modem. Home Control Assistant is a Windows based home automation program that works with a variety of automation interfaces to control lights, appliances, irrigation, HVAC and more. With HCA's Programming, Scheduling, Checkbox control and Power Track, you can easily save money, reduce electrical usage, conserve water and improve safety by automating your home.

      HCA can be installed in a home with existing automation hardware. HCA can "spider" through or Multi-Add all your installed INSTEON network and find all the devices and add them to your home design file. A new automation solution is easy to create using the built-in Wizards for creating a new file, adding devices, creating new schedules, and new programs. Once you have defined all the hardware, adding schedules and programs is simple using the Visual Tools provided.
