Now With Dual-Band
Excellent device signaling.
Numerous hardware improvements to the INSTEON Hub have enabled fantastic features like full dual-band support so that every INSTEON command reaches the furthest corners of your home. The need for a range extender to communicate with sensors and other RF-only devices is also a thing of the past as dual-band communication really makes the INSTEON Hub+ the center of your INSTEON network.
Control at Home or Away
You'll never be too far from home.
The Hub works in combination with your router and smartphone or tablet to control INSTEON devices in your home while you're there or when you're at work and on vacation. Instructions on how to setup remote access are included in the app or you can call and have INSTEON support set it up for you.
Instant Notification
Text message and email alerts from anywhere.
Create alerts by adding water leak sensors, 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 app anytime.
Your Eyes and Ears
Wireless IP Cameras for total surveillance
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.
To the Cloud!
Cloud-based storage of your entire home.
The INSTEON Hub stores your homes configuration in the cloud which allows access from any number of smartphones and tablets you may own. Want to add another smartphone or tablet? Simply download the app, sign in and all your settings (devices, scenes, icons, timers, etc.) are there to enjoy.
No Monthly Fees
Even more affordable.
That's right. No monthly fees to view, control and monitor your home. Other systems on the market charge hundreds of dollars a year for services that you can get for free with the INSTEON Hub.
