Smarthome™ Releases Insteon® Energy Monitoring Devices

January 7, 2011

IRVINE, Calif. - Smarthome announced today that two new Insteon products will aid users in controlling their energy consumption - iMeter Solo and SynchroLinc. Both products are currently available for pre-order, and are expected to be available for shipment within the coming weeks.

iMeter Solo is a revolutionary plug-in energy meter allowing Insteon users to access comprehensive energy consumption data of the appliance that is plugged into the unit. The data in the iMeter Solo can be retrieved using any compatible Insteon computer controller such as HouseLinc 2 or ISY-99i. Multiple iMeters can be used at the same time to gather energy data from several appliances simultaneously.

SynchroLinc is a plug-in Insteon device that gives the users the ability to convert their everyday electronics into automation triggers. With SynchroLinc, Insteon users have the ability to power up or shut down all of the electronics in a room by simply turning on or off one of them. Primary applications for SynchroLinc include entertainment system and computer peripheral control. 

"We continue to develop innovative and reliable products for the home automation enthusiast," commented Laurie Maroni, Vice President of Marketing at Smarthome. "Our customers have always used our Insteon products as a control for their energy usage. iMeter and SynchroLinc now provide them with more tools to target, monitor and control their energy consumption."

Both products have a retail price of $39.99. All Insteon products can be purchased at
