Insteon 74551 Garage Door Control & Status Kit

Remotely Monitor and Operate Your Garage Door Via Your Insteon Network
  • Open and close your garage from your smartphone - requires Insteon Hub
  • Can be used with an Insteon Hub however the included IOLinc module communicates via powerline only, so you may need a Range Extender or other dual-band Insteon devices*
  • For control from an Insteon Mini Remote, you will need a Range Extender or other dual-band Insteon devices*
  • Includes sensors that provide status on whether the garage door is open or closed
  • Compatible with most traditional 2 wire garage door openers - if your garage control button features a display panel, this kit is not compatible
*The included Insteon IOLinc module communicates over powerline only, which may cause issues if you are trying to remotely operate your garage from Insteon devices on a different electrical phase (circuit) or from a Mini Remote. We recommended adding a Range Extender on the same phase to bridge the IOLinc module with Insteon RF-only or Dual-band devices.

    Features Expand

    Using Insteon automation

    You can link a button on a KeypadLinc as a status light to indicate whether or not your garage door is open and remotely open or close the garage door from other areas of your property using that button or another button on a KeypadLinc, SwitchLinc or Mini Remote.

    Features Camera

    Set up a WiFi Camera in your garage to provide you with 24/7 surveillance of your vehicles by viewing it via your smartphone or tablet and then close (or open) your garage door from the same screen.

    How It Works

    I/O Linc's output relay wires to your garage door motor just like your existing button, allowing you to remotely operate your garage.

    Good Product, But Needs Google Assistant Support Review by Wendell
    Good Product, But Needs Google Assistant Support

    Installed a couple of these on two of my garage doors.
    Installation was straightforward and easy.
    Works fine with the Insteon App for Android.
    However, it must have support for Google Assistant to get 5 stars.

    Works great, but be careful if you are in a "cool" area Review by Paul
    Works great, but be careful if you are in a "cool" area

    The 2450 is only rated to 32 degrees. This year, our outside temp got to 9 degrees outside (warmer in the garage, but still below 32), and I had two of these "fail." They quit responding. I brought them in, warmed them up, and they worked again.
    Until they got cold again. I could "ping" the devices at 100% response, and then, slowly, they started dropping packets, until I got to 100% packet loss. When it got warmer outside, they started working again. I may have to run extra long wires and move them into the house..

    Just be aware they are only rated to 32 degrees, and then they might quit responding without notice..

    Easy Install Review by Gary
    Easy Install

    The Install was easy. My garage is detached and about 30 yards from the house so using my multi keypad I can open the garage from the house instead of walking down to the garage. I can also check to see if I've left it open.

    No more heating the driveway! Review by Rusty
    No more heating the driveway!

    This product works flawlessly, if the proper setup is utilized. It takes a little time to physically install and some more tinkering in the program. However, now I can see when the garage is opened/closed and close remotely if left open. The garage heater is designed to heat the garage, not the driveway.

    Works perfectly! Review by Naz
    Works perfectly!

    Easy to install and add to my Insteon Hub. No additional extender or equipment needed. Now can check from anywhere if we left the garage door open. I also programmed a button on one of my Insteon KeyPad Contoller to turn on if garage door sensor is open. I can also press that same button to close the door. My garage door opener is a Chamberlain LiftMaster Elite Series.

    No support for Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa Review by Raymond
    No support for Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa

    It work fine with the App but no support for Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa!
    I hope Insteon will add support soon!
    Also, alert when the door is open on specific time (night) will be nice!

    Be carefull Review by Newbully
    Be carefull

    I use it with an ISY994i. The 2450 is in the garage which is 12F right now (Wisconsin). -8F outside. Still works. I will consider to mount the 2450 inside the house. Had this for 4 years now. Another reviewer wired it into a remote which is a good option. Once you start playing with this type of thing you should be technically savvy. If you are playing with your phone, you could open the door unintentionally, or if there is an issue with the ISY994, you could be out of town and see your garage door open after a week of business travel. The Garage door is the biggest gateway to your residence. Just saying.

    Garage Door Control & Status Kit Review by EC
    Garage Door Control & Status Kit

    Garage door kit installed easily. Status light in Insteon Hub app on iOS was not matching door open and close status. It even showed different status on 2 different iOS devices. Called support, who recommended I purchase a Range Extender ($40). I told him I saw no reason to purchase a range extender as the opener did open and close, it was the status indicator that was incorrect. I have used an X10 opener here for years but the relay finally gave up. Eventually we decided to reset the unit,which we did several times and still no luck. He told me he would escalate the issue and call me back the next day. In the meantime I performed 2 more factory resets, the last time waiting 10 minutes before re-installing it on the hub and iOS app. It now worked. I have never had a follow up from Smarthome / Insteon. I have been a customer for over 20 years. I have had X10 devices and controllers for over 30 years. Customer service really needs to be upped guys. Otherwise the gear is generally very good.

    Works, but could use some improvement... Review by waskomatic
    Works, but could use some improvement...

    Install was easy and works to open and close the door. In the app, I can see the status of door (open or closed), but automation is lacking.

    I would like to be able to get an alert if it's open for more than a specified time or after a specified hour. Currently, the only way I have been able to find to do this is to open the app and look.

    Hopefully an update is coming soon.
