  • What's Included
  • The ISY994iZS/IR PRO is an easy-to-use central controller that is ideal for configuring and programing INSTEON, X10 and devices, while using its built-in SmartGrid technology to monitor your energy usage. It is a commercial grade standalone automation and energy management solution that has numerous features to satisfy the most advanced DIY'er or seasoned home control enthusiast. 3 phase and other electrical system incompatibilities with INSTEON are no longer an obstacle to a successful implementation. If you need unbridled control, the ISY994iZS/IR PRO is your controller.

    The ISY994iZS/IR PRO supports up to 1,024 devices and scenes and a maximum of 1,000 programs. The ISY994iZS/IR PRO 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. The IR model allows you to program your infrared universal remote to control all your INSTEON/X10 devices and scenes. The PRO model extends the capabilities of the ISY for extremely large installations

    Extends the capabilities of ISY994i Series:
    • Integrated High Powered Zigbee PRO radio and stack
    • Native support for Zigbee SEP (Smart Energy Profile) - SEP Functionality:
            • All clusters are supported and immediately available for custom and user defined programs:
            • Metering Cluster
            • Price Cluster
            • DRLC Cluster
            • Up to 10 events per cluster are stored, scheduled, and run at due time.
            • All events are also published to network clients (such as Mobile apps)
            • DRLC Opt in/out for scheduled and running events
            • Message confirmation
    • Native support for OpenADR out of the box
    • Integration with multiple 3rd party energy monitoring portals

    Smart Grid Enabled
    ISY994iZS/IR PRO takes energy conservation to the next level by enabling proactive management of all facets of energy consumption and production, utilizing firsthand information directly from the utility meter* to automatically command and control INSTEON devices, and thus promoting energy conservation and ultimately reducing costs. As security and privacy is of our utmost concern, none of the interactions between ISY, INSTEON devices, and the environment is sent back to the utility unless explicitly opted in.
    * To communicate with Smart Meters, ISY994iZS must be provisioned by your utility provider.

    INSTEON Control
    For INSTEON control this device must be paired with an INSTEON Dual-Band PLM Serial Interface. The PLM allows for direct communication with your existing INSTEON network from the ISY994iZS/IR PRO controller. The PLM features built-in dual-band technology that sends and receives INSTEON signals via power line 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 RF-only INSTEON-compatible devices like a remote, thermostat, motion sensor, or contact sensor.

    IR Control
    Control all your INSTEON/X10 devices with any infrared universal remote (RC5-compatible)
    Control other network-enabled devices using our 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 filed upgraded to IR platform

    Please Note:
    (1) The ISY994iZS/IR PRO requires an INSTEON Serial PowerLinc Modem PLM (sold separately):
            • 2412S - PowerLinc - INSTEON Modem, Serial (no longer available but it is compatible)
            • 2413S - PowerLinc Modem - INSTEON Serial Interface (Dual-Band)
    (2) The ISY994iZS/IR PRO does not require a power supply when used with a PLM which supplies power via the RJ-45 port (for example, PLM model #2412S). ISY994iZS/IR PRO 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 model #2413S).

    Using any Java-enabled web browser, the ISY994iZS/IR PRO 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.

    Review of 12239

    Nice product for the DIYer that wants to get into deeper logic control than HouseLinc. It's nice to not have a computer running and have events and other logic run but expensive and time consuming. Universal Devices could update the software to simplify the process of integration to make it consumer friendly.
