      About Z-Wave:
      Z-Wave is a wireless technology which uses Radio Frequency signals to communicate between transmitters and receivers. Each device in Z-Wave networks act as repeaters ensuring each signal reaches the intended location. This reliable, wireless ecosystem creates an integrated network unifying all of your home's electronics. Perfect for new construction or retrofit applications, Z-Wave is a wonderful, interoperable automation solution for both homes and businesses which can create wonderful savings and help save the planet through less energy consumption. Z-Wave allows users to control their entire home locally and remotely from a PC, smart-phones or web-enabled mobile device. Z-Wave is an open protocol technology. Z-Wave products are currently manufactured by the biggest names in the consumer electronics industry; Cooper Wiring Devices, Leviton's Vizia RF+, Intermatic, Aeotec by Aeon Labs, Honeywell, Schlage, Kwikset, Yale, Baldwin Hardware, General Electric, Elk, TrickleStar, FortrezZ, Evolve Guest Controls, and more!

      Important Note: To control Insteon devices you need a Power Link MODEM (not a controller). For example the 2414U won't work because it's an Insteon controller (not a modem) and uses a different protocol.

      Compatible Insteon Interfaces: PowerLinc Modem - Insteon USB Interface (Dual-Band) and Insteon PowerLinc Modem, USB.

      The Insteon PowerLinc Modem is a USB-based home automation interface that allows PC- and hardware-based automation controllers to control Insteon-compatible lights, appliances, heating/air conditioning systems and alarm systems directly via the Insteon network. The dual-band interface sends and receives both powerline and radio frequency (RF) Insteon signals, so it doubles as an Access Point. This makes it ideal for new Insteon installations if you have or plane to use an RF-only Insteon -compatible remote, thermostat, motion sensor and contact sensor. The RF signal can bypass electrical noise or attenuation near the PC and it pulls many of the "distant" Insteon devices one hop closer, which can expand the size of potential installations into even larger homes and commercial buildings.
