  • What's Included
  • The ISY994iZw 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 ISY994iZw is your controller.

    This controller now features Z-Wave technology to automate home control products and provide easy remote operation of all your Z-Wave enabled devices. The Z-Wave product family includes a variety of devices ranging from lighting to home security systems to conveniently manage your home. This controller is one component of a Z-Wave control and is designed to work with all other Z-Wave enabled devices in a home automation network. It will also act as a wireless repeater to insure that commands intended for another device in the network are received, thereby extending the range of the wireless controller.

    This module provides ISY support for Z-Wave in a way that integrates with other protocols running on the same ISY.

    The ISY994iZw supports up to 256 devices and scenes and a maximum of 300 programs. The ISY994iZw 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 paired with an Insteon Dual-Band PLM Serial Interface (included). The PLM allows for direct communication with your existing Insteon network from the ISY994iZwR 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 RF-only Insteon-compatible devices like a Mini Remote, Thermostat, Motion Sensor, or Contact Sensor.

    Additional Features

    • IR Control - Control all your Insteon/X10 devices with any infrared universal remote (RC5-compatible)
    • 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

    Extends the capabilities of the ISY994i Series

    • An expansion slot which could be utilized to install and support other protocols such as a Zigbee
    • Increased code memory to support additional communications drivers
    • Native support for Open ADR out of the box

    Please Note

    The ISY994iZw does not require a power supply when used with a PLM (included) which supplies power via the RJ-45 port. ISY994iZw 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 ISY994iZw 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.

    Agave Home Automation for Insteon, Z-Wave and X10 control via ISY

    Agave - ISY app for mobile home automation of Insteon and Z-Wave devices. Agave Home Automation allows for seamless, secure and customizable remote access to your Universal Devices ISY Controller from your Android® smartphone and tablet

    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, control of, and bypass of all of your Elk zones.

    Agave works with your favorite Insteon devices (requires an Insteon-compatible ISY). Whether you want to control an Insteon Thermostat, LED Bulb, On/Off Switch Relay, Dimmer Switch, I/O Linc Sensor/Relay, Triggerlinc Open/Close Sensor, Motion Sensor (2420 verified), Smoke Sensor, or an EZFlora/Lawn Sprinkler, Agave works for you. 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)
    • UDI Portal (Requires subscription through UDI)

    See www.agaveha.com for more information.
