Control at home or away

The Hub connects to your modem or router and in-turn allows you to use your smartphone or tablet to control Insteon devices - from home or away. Working in conjunction with the "Insteon for Hub" iOS or Android app, the Hub allows you to create timers and scenes which unlock the true power of home automation. Remote access to the Hub is simple to set up, as the Hub can self-configure itself with most modems.

Easy Insteon device scheduling

Want to turn on your bedside lamp automatically to help wake you up in the morning? How about turn the porch light on and off automatically with the rise and fall of the sun? No problem.

Alerts via test message and/or email

Create alerts by adding motion sensors, door/window sensors and more. The Insteon Hub will send text and email alerts to you as well as anyone else you wish. The Hub also stores the status of these sensors, so you can easily check on your sensors from within the free app anytime.

Stay connected to what matters most

Wonder what triggered the motion sensor or just want to check in on the kids or your pets? Add a wireless camera and you'll see it all from your smartphone. The Insteon cameras feature pan/tilt control and night vision. Setting up this camera within the Insteon for Hub app is the easiest setup routine that you have ever seen and anyone can do it.

Insteon lives in the cloud

The Insteon Hub stores your homes configuration in the cloud which allows access from any number of smartphones and tablets you or your family may own. Want to add another smartphone? Simply download the app, sign in and all your settings (devices, scenes, icons, timers, etc.) are there to enjoy.

Easy installation

Reduce the amount of time spent reading manuals. The Insteon for Hub app features video installation wizards that walk you through setup of many Insteon ON devices.
