  • What's Included
  • The ISY994i is one of the most advanced Insteon controllers on the market and has numerous features to satisfy the most advanced DIY'er or seasoned home control enthusiast. If you need unbridled control, the ISY994i is your controller.

    The ISY994i supports up to 256 devices and scenes and a maximum of 300 programs. The ISY994i controller is able to configure and program Insteon devices using Insteon native protocols and specifications. This allows it to directly write to Insteon devices internally instead of just in the controller, creating a more robust network. You can set up timer events and custom event triggers, as well as monitor and control all the Insteon-compatible devices in your home from any web-browser anywhere in the world. Now you can check if the lights in your house were left on and remotely control them from your computer at the office.

    Insteon Control

    For Insteon control this device must be paried with an Insteon Dual-Band PLM Serial Interface. The PLM allows for direct communication with your existing Insteon network from the ISY994i controller. The PLM features built-in dual-band technology that sends and receives Insteon signals via powerline and radio frequency (RF), so it doubles as an Access Point. This makes it ideal for new Insteon installs if you have or plan to use an RF-only Insteon-compatible devices like a Mini Remote, Thermostat, Motion Sensor, Open/Close Sensor.

    Extends the capabilities of the ISY994i Series

    • An expansion slot which could be utilized to install and support other protocols such as a Zigbee or Z-Wave
    • Control other network-enabled devices using an optional Network Module (RS-232 devices can be controlled using an ELK IP232 or Global Cache GC-100 and more)
    • Non IR models can be field upgraded to IR platform

    Please Note

    The ISY994i requires an Insteon Serial PowerLinc Modem PLM (sold separately) or available as a Kit.

    ISY994i does provide a port for an optional AC adapter for instances where the PLM does not supply power, or the user prefers to supply power independent of the PLM (for example, PLM 2413S).

    Using any Java-enabled web browser, the ISY-994i gives you the ability to control, monitor and configure all Insteon-compatible devices from any web-browser anywhere in the world. Best of all, no software is needed to gain access to your Insteon network. Simply bring up a browser and type in the URL of your Home Automation Controller.

    Many Insteon and Z-Wave devices can be controlled through ISY using Agave. If you find one that isn’t supported, contact the developer (we’ll need a node dump of the device from an ISY).

    Agave can control your ELK M1 Home Security system through your ISY. Arm and disarm in all Elk modes including status of and control of bypass of all of your Elk zones.

As new Insteon devices are released, we work to add them quickly to Agave.

    Agave works with several Z-Wave devices (requires a Z-Wave compatible ISY). Schlage Door locks, thermostats, on/off and dimmable switches, MIMOLite sensors, and Aeon Multisensors can be controlled through Agave. If you have a Z-Wave device that isn’t already added to Agave, we’ll work with you to get it added quickly (please contact the developer!).

    Agave can connect to your ISY using any combination of the following methods in the order

    • Direct Connection via private home network (local) connection (usually the “primary” connection)
    • Direct Connection via external network/cellular data connection (may require port forwarding on router) (often the “secondary” connection)

    Setup was fairly easy and it seems to work well. A few quirks, but, what product does not have them? Based on the current market, it seems a bit pricey, but, it's not that bad.

    took a little time to set up, but the guys from universal-devices were great and it works fine. I now able to control lights by sunset and not have to reset on times every month.

    Works exactly as advertised. Excellent product and gives you a lot of flexibility. No Limits to things you can do. If someone wants more control over programming - I would highly recommend this product.

    This controller is surprisingly small and has eliminated a computer from my system. It has worked flawlessly right out of the box. Great Product

    The setup was relatively simple (the downloaded ISY99 guide helped) but the signal strength from the PLM was low. However, after installing Insteon filters on two PC/UPS installations in the house and adding two more access points on different phases it is now 100% reliable. I'm also using the MobiLinc app on my Android. For a test I found I was able to turn on my house lights in Philadelphia from Brooklyn, NY. A neat app.

    Mine has been online only 1 day and is part of a simplistic Insteon installation, but I am ecstatic. Installation went exactly as described in the manual. Documentation is excellent. Linking devices is very easy. An advantage of this product is the information available to the user through the web interface and the built-in troubleshooting tools. I haven't seen any comments about this, but it is extremely important or will become so sooner or later!. These kinds of tools just aren't available with some of the other products like this that I have used. Also, in looking through the Universal Devices Web site, I just don't see any significant problems or reliability issues mentioned. That was a major factor in my decision to buy one of these.

    To date I have not been able to get the system to work. I have tried 2 PLM's and one controller. Controller and one PLM sent back for exchange. Tech support is very slow from controller people.

    So far, has been a massive improvement over smartlinc I was using before. Response time and consistency of response to lighting commands has been great. Building simple scences and programs are easy.

    With all that said, its not perfect. UD touts its Open ADR functionality for energy usage/monitoring, however I've not yet found much information detailing how to use it. I'm not an installer/integrator so this is not what I do everyday. I think if they are going to advertise this feature they need to do more to make it accessible to the retail customer. Also, I was surprised to learn how much additional modules cost.

    All in all very satisfied with purchase, but didn't give 5 stars because I feel some of the advertised functionality is only there if you dig deep to figure it out or pay more for it.

    ISY99 works perfect. The trick is learning how to program, because there is 2 to 3 ways to perform the same task. Had to make one call to their support line, and they called back within 24 hours. Highly recommend this product, and Mobilink works great with product.

    If having problems with Kaspersky, such as repeated requests to logon or screens that do not update after making a change, try using the https: url instead of the http: url, as the https url seems to work even with Kaspersky running.
