    Control your thermostat from anywhere - in your home from an Insteon Keypad or on the road from your Smartphone with the Insteon Hub.

    System Support

    Our range of thermostat offerings ensures that even the most custom HVAC installation can be controlled.


    Insteon Thermostats fully integrate with your Insteon automation system. Automatically control duct dampers, ceiling fans and more.

    Smartphone Remote.

    Because carrying the thermostat around is just silly.

    When you install an Insteon Thermostat in your home and link it to the Insteon Hub, every smartphone and tablet you own becomes a remote control. It doesn't matter if you're hiding under the covers on a cold winter morning or running late out of the office on a sweltering summer evening, you can adjust the temperature from anywhere and ensure that your home is comfortable all the time.

    Winter Weather Watch

    Keep the blizzard outside and ensure your home is toasty warm by turning up the heat remotely.

    Summer Sun

    Cool down the house when you're on your way home on a blistering summer afternoon.

    Bon Voyage

    Turn off the AC even after you've left. Especially helpful for impromptu expeditions.

    Control on Apple Watch

    With the Insteon App on Apple Watch, you don't even need to reach for your iPhone to adjust the Thermostat. Change your Thermostat mode right on your wrist. (Disclaimer "Mode control only. Set point and fan currently unavailable from Apple Watch. Feature will be added in a future software update.”)

    Supported Systems

    A wide range of heating and cooling devices.

    Insteon Thermostat works with most heating and cooling systems found in homes and many businesses. With the exception of heat pumps and sophisticated triple-stage systems, your home's heating and cooling system is most likely compatible with Insteon Thermostat. In addition, Insteon Wireless Thermostat gives you control over line-voltage and millivolt heaters.

    Insteon Features

    When is a thermostat more than just a thermostat? When it's an Insteon Thermostat.

    Duct Dampers

    Add duct dampers to control the flow of conditioned air on a room-by-room basis with IO Module



    Use sensors on doors and windows to prevent the AC from cooling the entire neighborhood when a door or window is left open


    Line Voltage & Millivolt

    Integrated with line voltage systems using Micro Modules and vintage millivolt heaters with IO Module


    Ceiling Fans

    Automatically circulate conditioned air when you run the AC or heater by spinning up ceiling fans



    Multi-zone ready.

    You don't need to have a mansion to benefit from a multi-zone thermostat system. With the Insteon Thermostat, you can connected up to two additional Insteon Wireless Thermostats for remote temperature monitoring in your home. Place one in the hottest room in the house and use it as a basis for cooling your home. Add one to your guest bedroom and let the in-laws have a say in household temperature. Or simply move the temperature sensing from a dark and deserted hallway to the center of your home.

    YouTube instruction video Review by Emedemed
    YouTube instruction video

    I just purchased and received the heat pump version after having purchased the wrong one. The return was no problem and now I'm ready to install the right one. I also purchased the venstar add a wire and watched the official venstar install video. Their video along with the tectube video and within about an hour I had it wired and working. This, even tho my system had no circuit board but their explanations made it easy enough for me to understand what everything did. I love this thermostat and the voice control that Alexa provides!

    Terrible, 3 of 4 failed Review by Keith
    Terrible, 3 of 4 failed

    First, let me say that Smarthome is a great company and has excellent customer service! I love their Insteon system and have a very large system. I have a been using Insteon products since 2007 utilizing the ISY-994IR as the centerpiece of the system. I just moved to a home almost 4,000 sqft taking most of my system with me except the thermostats. I previously had Venstar thermostats however elected to give Insteon branded thermostats a try. I ordered two (heat pump versions), one for the main part of the house and one for the guest rooms. Within one day of installation, the first one on the main system stopped working (flashed blue screen the dark alternating). Attempted a factory reset which lasted 2 hours and right back to flashing again. I called Smarthome and they arranged to send a replacement. The other on the guest room system continued for 2 weeks. The replacement arrived and was installed only to have the other one fail. Then the replacement failed, all flashing blue then dark. I called Smarthome who was quick to offer replacements HOWEVER I chose not to replace them but to return to the Venstar thermostats and I ordered them from Smarthome. It is possible that the entire batch of Insteon thermostats Smarthome received was defective but I wasn't taking anymore chances. SMARTHOME CUSTOMER SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT THE ENTIRE TIME as they have been over the years. It was no hassle to replace them or to ship back and order the Venstars. They ALWAYS stand by their products and if I was rating their customer service I give 5 stars but I'm rating a product.

    Works as Advertised Review by John
    Works as Advertised

    I just installed the heat pump thermostat, 2732-242. Installation was straight forward with no surprises. I have tested it in all modes and it seems to function well. I had no problem linking it to the Insteon Hub.
    The "emergency heat" mode functioned ok, but is awkward to initiate. The Honeywell I replaced had a simple "Emergency Heat" mode just like cool, heat , auto, and off.
    I can not find in the Owner's Manual the circumstances that bring on the Aux. heat. For example, the old thermostat turned on the Aux. heat if the set point was 2 degrees or more above the actual temperature. I also can not find anywhere on the thermostat that indicates if the Aux. heat is on. These are important issues since operation of the Aux. electric heat strips is very expensive. I want to know exactly what circumstances turn on electric heat strips and when it is operating. If I am missing something obvious, I would like to know what it is.
    I have only tested this thermostat for a short time, but it seems to function well and does everything promised.
