Insteon Home Automation Starter Kit

So far the kit has worked well. I had some trouble setting it up for remote use, but attribute that to my wireless internet system (I'm in a remote area with Hot Spot remote internet access--not the best--and harder to check functionality). I took the system to a home in town and it works well. I'm using both Insteon and X10 devices, as well as an Airsight camera--no problems. This is with the HUB-1, not to be confused with the new HUB-2.

Great product

Like the schedules. Easy installation. Out of the home network connection was a little bit trick it but I did not follow the instructions correctly. Really nice to walk with cell phone and turn on and out lights.

works great for my family

I have this kit plus the garage door openers, range extenders, LED bulbs. I have all linked with the hub as well as 2 range extenders as my home is large. I have 3 cameras. I can monitor my son at night. I can check to make sure I closed the garage door with a camera in the garage. I have lights, outdoor lights and Christmas lights all programmed and scheduled. Insteon's technical support is great. Have a call back feature so you don't have to wait on the phone. It's so easy to use and Insteon keeps adding more and more devices. Best thing for me is there is no subscription fees or services.

Great unit and features

I read the reviews and would like to post my own on this unit. I am not sure why it is getting negative comments. I have had this unit for a week now and love it. It is very easy to setup and maintain. I have already added so much more to this basic starter kit. It does require an iPhone or android to set it up which is no big issue. I had mine setup and on my network in less than ten minutes. I can monitor everything away from home. I do understand about using the unit away from home, but you do not need a wifi connection to view it. You need anything higher then 3G. I control mine on a 4G or 4G LTE and have no issues. So if you are looking to make your home automated I would start with this unit. They have so many additional add-ons and they are unlimited. I am doing the garage controller next. I hope this helps someone else who is looking to do this to their house.
