INSTEON Hub — Home Regulate for the Rest of Us
INSTEON Hub is an INSTEON central controller for the rest of us — a simple and straightforward device that connects you to your home from any smartphone or tablet, anywhere on the planet. Regulate INSTEON light bulbs, wall switches, outlets, and thermostats at home or remotely and receive instant email or push notifications from motion, door and window, water leak, and smoke sensors whilst you’re away. Just start with the Hub, select the INSTEON devices for your home, and enjoy.
The INSTEON Hub works in combination with your router and smartphone or tablet to Regulate INSTEON devices in your house whilst you’re there or when you are at work and on vacation. With the INSTEON Hub, it’s easy to schedule your porch light to turn on at sunset and off at sunrise. And because the Hub keeps an eye on any INSTEON sensors installed all over your home, you’ll be able to receive an instant push notifications or email alert if ever a door or window is opened, motion detected or worse, a water leak or smoke is found. Because the INSTEON Hub knows about your INSTEON WiFi Cameras, you’ll be able to Regulate and manage them all from the same app — no wish to use two apps to Regulate your home. To verify your home is all the time connected, the INSTEON Hub talks with the INSTEON Connect cloud-based home management service. Your devices, scenes, settings, schedules, and more are stored for you, making it easy to access your home from a couple of locations or even a couple of devices. But best of all, these features don’t come with a nagging monthly fee. Unlike other systems available on the market that charge hundreds of dollars a year for similar products and services, the INSTEON Hub has no monthly fees.

The Hub supports two protocols: INSTEON and X10. INSTEON transmits both over radio and powerline. X10 transmits solely on powerline and subsequently inherently less reliable. The Hub supports X10 so as to help existing X10 users in migrating to a better technology (INSTEON). X10 signaling is highly dependent upon the “cleanliness” of the individuals electrical environment. X10 is susceptible to power line noise (other electronics pushing noise interference onto the house power). Additionally it is susceptible to attenuation (signal sucking). The user should perform some basic troubleshooting to resolve what electronic devices could be causing interference (on a regular basis this can be a sequence of unplugging appliances separately whilst sending test signals after each removal). We offer noise filters to reduce the affect of electronics on the power line.
