    SmartLinc is an affordable and flexible web-based controller perfect for controlling light bulbs, wall switches, lamps or appliances, thermostat and many more INSTEON devices. SmartLinc integrates INSTEON technology with any web-enabled device, allowing you to setup and control INSTEON devices from inside your home, in the backyard, at work, in the car or on vacation halfway around the world!

    Ideal At-Home Control
    SmartLinc works in combination with your router and most mobile Wi-Fi or web-enabled devices to control INSTEON devices within your home. Setup only requires a few easy steps to identify your network IP address and then type it into your PC or mobile device. After setup has been completed, you can start linking INSTEON lights and appliances and creating scenes that will make home life more convenient and energy efficient.
    •  Wi-Fi enabled phone or PDA
    •  Wi-Fi router
    •  PC connected to router

    Note: The Linksys Router Model WRT610N Version 1 has been found to be incompatible with the Smartlinc. The more recent version WRT610N Version 2 is compatible with the SmartLinc.

    Away from Home Control
    In much the same way as the At-Home setup works, while you are away from home you can access your INSTEON network using SmartLinc in conjunction with any internet connection or Wi-Fi hotspot.

    I was hoping that all of the negative reviews was b/c of old hardware. But I purchased this SmartLinc less than a month ago and know it's version 2.0+. Problems posted in previous review still exist. SmartLinc can't turn on devices using scene but can turn them off. The only way I can get all my devices to turn on is to use Custom On Command.

    iPhone and Android apps are unstable. When the app crashes, it causes SmartLinc to take configuration from one room and duplicate it in a different room. Making both room have same labels.

    I really wish this device and app is more stable. It's a good idea but poorly implemented.

    PLM Version: 9B
    Firmware Version: 3.1 Build Sep 16 2010
    Version: iPhone 2.3 YF

    Very easy setup. Web interface is limited, but does what I need. I'm just dipping into the waters of home automation and this was a good first step.

    Software update could make this product the gold standard for home automation.

    Unfortunately as it stands now its not quite up to web 2.0 standards and the documentation leaves a bit to be desired. Need longer usernames, longer passwords, support for special characters in passwords. Need more options in the timer department, it would be great to be able to do advanced scheduling ie every other thursday or the first friday of the month or whatnot. This thing can calculate sunrise and sunset based on my latitude and longitude why do I have to tell it what time it is? This thing has an internet connection it ought to be able to call local time and update the clock itself.

    I expected this would be a little easier to set up. I think after I get over the initial learning curve I'll be very happy but man a whole weekend to plug and play was a bit much. And I'm a rocket scientist.

    My recommendation to the designer of this product would be to read The design of every day things update the manual and software and that ought to be enough to seize the entire home automation market.

    Had to return the item. My verizon router is not PnP. I called Smarthome for help however the agent on the phone was not eager to guide me through making this item work for me.

    VERY VERY incomplete instructions

    Many features are learned only by calling help line-----tech assistants do not provide uniform instructions

    A good product. A better "clock" and less susceptibility to "electrical spikes" would make it a 5 star item.
