Product Details

The Insteon Portable USB Adapter is a home control interface that allows hardware-based automation systems to control Insteon-compatible lights, appliances, heating/air conditioning systems and alarm systems directly via the Insteon network. The interface requires 3rd party Insteon software in order to function. This includes Indigo, HCA or Homeseer. Check with third party software developer for support readiness.

The single-band interface sends and receives radio frequency (RF) Insteon signals. If you are trying to control power line only devices you must have at least one Access Point or dual-band Insteon product for communication. For best Insteon network performance, be sure you have properly installed at least two dual-band Insteon products.

Since this is a RF only device, for always on applications, we highly recommend the plug-in dual-band version for superior performance and reliability.

Important Notes:?This interface does not support program downloads and therefore the computer/software must remain on to execute timers and triggered events.

The USB 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.
