  • Control Insteon and HomeKit Devices

    The HomeKit-enabled Insteon Hub allows Insteon devices to work the Apple HomeKit technology for home management. With the new Insteon+, you can control both Insteon devices and third-party HomeKit-enabled devices - all in one easy-to-use app.

    Remote Control

    Control Insteon connected lights and appliances alongside HomeKit-compatible products from your iPhone or iPod touch.

    Siri® Control

    Control Insteon connected lights and appliances alongside HomeKit-compatible products from your iPhone or iPod touch.

    Build Scenes

    Quickly and easily create scenes that let you control multiple devices simultaneously. Customize advanced features like On Level, too.

    Automate with Schedules

    Configure a single device to turn on and off at a specific time or create customized groups of devices that turn on and off at various times throughout the day.

    The New Insteon+ App for HomeKit

    We wanted to add some fun to the daily chore of managing your home's lights and devices; so why not make Insteon+ more fun to use than your light switches? With brand new controls and a greatly simplified user interface, Insteon+ sets the new standard for home control apps.


    It doesn't matter if your home is a single bedroom apartment or a multi-winged compound, Insteon+ makes adding devices, rooms, zones and more simple and straightforward.

    Insteon or HomeKit?

    With Insteon+, you can choose the best automation device for the task; add and control Insteon and HomeKit devices side-by-side. You can even mix and match Insteon and HomeKit devices in scenes and schedules.

    Rooms and Zones

    Keep track of devices in your home by building out rooms and then quickly switch between them with just a swipe. For really efficient control of large areas of your home, group rooms into zones like downstairs or outside.

    Multiple Houses?

    For the lucky few with multiple houses or the caring child helping improve the lives of your aging parents, add as many homes as you'd like and move in and out of them with ease.


    With Insteon+, you can control a wide range of devices including lights, appliances, door locks, garage doors and more. And because Insteon+ uses HomeKit technology, any HomeKit-enabled device will be right at home.

    Dimmable Lights

    Quickly brighten and dim your lights with a custom, ergonomic slide or increment and decrement with convenient buttons.

    Multi-Colored Lights*

    With an homage to a classic wheel-themed-game-show, add some color to your life with our multi-colored light control.

    *HomeKit-enabled color changing lights not yet available but Insteon+ will be ready when they are.

    On/Off Lights and Appliances

    Even the basics like On/Off devices get a new control with discrete on and off buttons.

    Ceiling Fans

    Control both the speed of your ceiling fan and the brightness of it's lamp. And if you have a lampless fan, we're smart enough to only show you fan speed.

    Garage Doors*

    Monitor and control your garage door and, if supported by your garage door controller, even be alerted to unexpected obstacles in it's path.

    *HomeKit-enabled garage door controllers are not yet available but Insteon+ will be ready when they are.

    Door Locks*

    Ensure you don't accidentally unlock your front door with a familiar slide to unlock gesture.

    *HomeKit-enabled door locks not yet available but Insteon+ will be ready when they are.


    With Insteon+, we've included features that make your daily home control tasks effortless; everything from guest users to voice control of devices and scenes with Siri.

    Your Wish is Her Command

    Talk to your home and let your home talk back with Siri control of devices and scenes. Like an episode of the Waltons, you can finally say, "goodnight" to your house and have it react in kind.


    Your home is always at your fingertips with Dashboard; see at-a-glance which lights you've left on or if the doors are secure. Add in your favorite devices and scenes and you might never need to leave.

    Be Your Guest

    If your friends and family have an iPhone or iPod touch, they're just an Apple ID away from guest access to your home. Guests can control devices and scenes but can't make changes to your meticulously crafted home configuration.


    If you're just getting started, there's a wide array of Insteon devices that work with the new HomeKit-enabled Insteon Hub. And if your home is full of Insteon already, there's no need to replace all of your existing Insteon devices.

    Works, but is VERY limited Review by TimSails
    Works, but is VERY limited

    For this to be an Insteon product, it is extremely limited in functionality with Insteon devices. For example, on the 6 and 8-button wall switches, you can only control the device attached to the “load” wire. I also cannot control the LED brightness on the switch itself. I didn’t have the other hub, so I don’t know if it can do it either. I currently use the Universal Devices ISY-994 to control my Insteon devices however, it doesn’t offer HomeKit compatibility, so I tried this. On the ISY, it is possible to control every aspect of any of the Insteon devices. At night, I like to turn the LEDs off in the bedrooms. This doesn’t seem possible on the hub.

    Also, pairing new switches is NOT easy. You have to press the “set” button on the hub to pair each switch. This is a two person operation unless you have your jogging shoes on and are prepared to run all over the house between adding each switch.

    The HomeKit functionality I have made work so far, does work OK, but come on, Insteon, you can do better than this.

    Poor scene support Review by Mike
    Poor scene support

    A little fussy to set up but no worse to set up than most homekit devices. Pairing was miserable for me compared to the older hub (I had to physically pair devices to the hub, the software-driven pairing didn't work). It appears there is no ability to assign scenes to the devices so they respond to one another like I'm used to. Instead, all the 'scenes' are assigned through homekit. 3-way switches and scenes would need to be manually configured on the devices, which was a shocking feature omission compared to the older hub (a crucial feature for larger setups). I fought with it for a week before I gave up and switched to the older hub instead.

    Doesn't support all Insteon devices! Review by Erick
    Doesn't support all Insteon devices!

    After some setup hassles, I got the Hub Pro to work pretty well. There are two major problems. First, the Home app shows all devices have "no response" on the home screen. If you go into each room, the device does respond. The bigger problem is that the Hub Pro only supports one button on the 8 button keypad. This is unacceptable. It means that I can't keep things in sync when using the other buttons. Seems like a pretty glaring omission to me.

    Works good...but on my second Review by TPAFL
    Works good...but on my second

    The functionality of the hub is as expected. Commands can be a little slow, but overall a good product. Unfortunately I'm on my second. The first latest 13 months.

    my go to Review by Shereef
    my go to

    i hope this doesnt sound like advertisement .... but i run a home automation company and have tried many homekit light switches and bulbs... insteon hub for homekit was the best of them all... not flawless though -- one and only one minor glitch i find.... if a group of lights are off i cant tell it to set them to a certain %... i must first tell siri to turn on the group - then to set it to that % other than that one very minor problem i would say t is perfect...

    oh one more thing... i found after a certain number of devices it gives a no response on homekit initial load.... solution: split your devices along more hubs... i have 4 hubs on the same homekit home - working great

    Works Great with Siri, But! Review by Jeff B
    Works Great with Siri, But!

    The hub pro works very well with Siri, and I would give that 5 stars, however, the setup process leaves a lot to be desired. I had the older Insteon Hub and setup was very easy with the ability to just type in the insteon module’s code and you were set. With the Hub Pro you have to push the set button on the back of the Hub, THEN push the set button on the module, I have a total of 35 modules spread throughout the house Nd that Kent 35 set button pushes and 35 trips around the house to push the set buttons on my modules, one at a time! This process is a real step backward for Insteon. In addition, if you are using Apple HomeKit, you don’t use the Insteon+ app, however, no where in any of the manuals does it tell you this. It took 40 minutes of frustration followed bya call to Insteon technical support to find this out. Once you go directly into Apple HomeKit things came together.

    Good, but beware... Review by Omar
    Good, but beware...

    The hub is actually pretty good. My current one had been running without hiccup for going on 4 years. There are two caveats. One, the SW is atrocious--its not even close to being intuitive, especially the process of adding devices. But, if you survive the learning curve, the hub is stable and the iOS Home app is a much better interface for day-to-day---use it to set up your automation, control devices, etc. Caveat two is support. Many of the online docs are old/inaccurate/wrong and calling tech support is iffy. The ethernet port seems to have died on my hub and I cannot get a callback from level 2 support until tomorrow (maybe). If my current hub is dead, I'll likely get another one because there is nothing better out there.

    Bad wrap - actually a good product Review by Matt
    Bad wrap - actually a good product

    I have had this hub and one Fanlinc controller now for 2 months and it works flawlessly. I was scared to buy because of all the bad reviews. This is actually a very stable and solid product. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because the process to link devices to the hub is VERY poor and complex and the Insteon app (which the instruction manual leans on) is a high-school project at best.
    The hardware itself is fantastic and that's all that matters to me. I need hardware that works and does not fail. Is it cumbersome to initially link? Yes. But once you get it done, it's pretty great.

    Hub is hard to sync, but is let down by defective outlets Review by Bovlb
    Hub is hard to sync, but is let down by defective outlets

    This HomeKit-compatible hub is expensive, but I bought it because there is a shortage of HomeKit-compatible outlets, and I thought that going with Insteon would broaden my options. It turns out that only one of the two outlets can be controlled remotely, and the other can only be controlled by pressing the button on the outlet. At first I thought I must be doing something wrong, but Insteon confirmed that this is intended behaviour.

    Also, I expected to be able to add devices by typing in their ID numbers, but instead I have to press a tiny button on the hub and then run across the house to press a button on the device (and do the same in reverse if I want two-way control). While I appreciate the extra exercise, none of this screams "quality product" to me, so I am returning all of the Insteon products I have purchased as defective.

    Good Product Shame on Insteon Review by rweigum
    Good Product Shame on Insteon

    I have had the product for several months now and I absolutely love it. The only issue is Insteon itself. If you use only HomeKit as advised in several articles it works GREAT. I had previously owned the regular hub. It was slow to respond to commands, constantly looses configuration and not compatible with HomeKit. The Pro Hub is instantly responsive and has not lost configs. The Insteon software is the killer of an otherwise GREAT product that works this Siri. Its like Insteon is trying to kill HomeKit in favor of Alexa. I called tech and they wanted to sign some song and dance about Apples fault for wanting to have a secure product and it was to restricting for Insteon programers. Hey get over it and learn to code! I have several products from many companies that work GREAT with HomeKit like Schlage locks, GE lights and may others. They don't cry they just make good secure products. If you want me and the rest of the Insteon fans to continue to buy Insteon change NOW. Otherwise I will migrate to other HomeKit comparable products.
