What is INSTEON?


INSTEON is a home automation control system you can use to manage everyday appliances or other components in your home. Whether you begin with just a Hub or a more comprehensive starter kit, the capabilities of the device largely depend on your connected electronics. The INSTEON Hub, which acts as a router, enables you to remotely control your connected electronics anywhere using an app. Depending on what you���d like the Hub to manage, you may need to integrate additional products for a fully connected home.

Notable Products Compatible with the INSTEON Hub

  • INSTEON Garage Door Control and Status Kit - This bundle gives your INSTEON device the power to monitor and open or close your garage door with your network, so you don���t have to worry if you forgot to shut the door when you���re not home.
  • INSTEON Wireless IP Security Camera with Night Vision - Set up a few cameras around the perimeter of your home and let INSTEON provide you with peace of mind. The motion-activated camera with night vision can tilt or pan to catch unwanted visitors in the act. You���ll receive an email with still shots if motion is detected around your property, so you can take action right away - even if you���re away from home.
  • INSTEON Wireless Motion Sensor - With an INSTEON motion sensor connected through a scene with your favorite electronics, you can have your lights turn on when you enter or exit a room or your thermostat adjust to your preferred temperature.
  • INSTEON Open/Close Sensor - Equip your home with additional sensors to allow INSTEON to control lights or appliances when the open/close magnetic sensor detects movement such as a door opening. You can also configure the device to alert you if a door or window around the sensor has been left ajar.
