    Great start Review by Terry
    Great start

    I have used different products for home automation since 1990 and finally decided to change to voice activated product via Echo. I like that I can add HVAC control, cameras, and use my phone to monitor everything.

    First step to Home Automation Review by Brandon
    First step to Home Automation

    Read many reviews on different home automation products and after several days decided to go with Insteon. It's user friendly and there are many different insteon devices to go along with it.

    I also have Nest and like that I'm able to control my thermostat all from one location. My reason for taking 1 star off doesn't have much to do with the product, but instead this package. I find the appearance of the dimmer modules to be clunky. Not an issue if it's hidden behind furniture but not something I'd personally want visible.

    Insteon Hub and System Review by Bill
    Insteon Hub and System

    I love it. I had been using an X10 system which was becoming increasingly unreliable so I decided to upgrade to the Insteon system entirely and started with the hub and a couple of plug-ins, since expanded to 27 responders of various types. I couldn't be happier. The app is extremely user-friendly and easy to use. However, I do have a few suggestions for possible changes for the app. First, the app requires each scene to have a unique on or off time meaning we can't have more than one scene come on at the same time, e.g., sunset. (A fix for this is supposed to be coming out early 2017.) Second, it would be nice to be able to apply an "offset" when one chooses "sunset" as the on time. I find it is too dark at actual sunset and I would like my scenes to turn on about 30 minutes before sunset for my area. Allowing us to use an offset would be nice although I have found a suitable work-around for this problem: I changed my settings so that the app thinks my home is in a city about 6 hours to the east! Third, I'd like to have the option to assign a RANDOM offset (say, plus or minus 10 minutes as an example) to the On and Off times so the lights come on and go off at random times not the same time every night to give the house a more "lived-in" look when on vacation.
    Still, it's a great product/system that I highly recommend.

    Problem with a static IP address Review by Krystyna
    Problem with a static IP address

    As soon as I try to change the dynamic IP address to the static, the red light is on. If I change it reset it using the network reset button, the green light comes back. Somwhere is the problem with the reconfiguration. I tried to follow the instruction provided in Insteon for Hub app and it seems not working with the static IP address.
    I do not know how to configure it with a static IP??????

    Has a lot of potential Review by Manny123
    Has a lot of potential

    I only use one of the lamp modules as a wake up light. I set it to turn the light on dimly 8 minutes before my alarm goes off at 5:30 AM and to slowly get brighter. Half the time I wake up gently before the alarm goes off. I really like it. I am looking forward to buying more Insteon products.

    Better way to turn on the lights Review by TheDiplomat06
    Better way to turn on the lights

    The days of getting up to turn on the light are long over. I love this product. Along with the fact you dont have a monthly prescription it is easy to set up and an ease to use.

    Simple, easy, cool

    This product was easy to install and is easy to use. I've had no problems so far and I'm looking forward to expanding it! Definitely worth the price.

    Snappy setup and expandable Review by LagunaGuy
    Snappy setup and expandable

    Got this kit for controlling a few lamps but quickly caught the fever for adding more control to my house. Got a few of their switches which I opted to install myself and turns out it's fairly easy to do. At first the wife was shaking her head at my new found toy but she quickly converted when I loaded the app on her phone and new Apple watch. Now she's dimming lights left and right and loves setting mood lighting at night - where previously she'd spend 10min walking around the house after sunset, she hits a scene button and its done in an instant.

    If you do need some assistance, support is very helpful.

    Anyway, this kit is a good starting point for anyone wanting to get into this futuristic home stuff.
