SmartLabs Introduces SmartLinc, previously known as Netlinc - Insteon Central Controller: Turns iPhone into a Home Automation Touch Screen

July 15, 2008

IRVINE, Calif. - SmartLabs, Inc. announces the release of SmartLinc, a plug-in web server that puts the power of controlling an Insteon home automation network in the palm of your hand. This revolutionary new product allows communication from an iPhone, iPod touch, the internet or any mobile Wi-Fi / web-enabled PDA or cell phone to remotely control and set timers for Insteon devices. 

There is almost no limit to what you can control with Insteon. SmartLinc takes that a step further, offering the power of Insteon control from anywhere inside or outside your home. You can control or set timers for any device or scene on your Insteon network while relaxing on the couch, entertaining in the backyard, at work, or on vacation. "SmartLinc is the most affordable Internet-enabled web server for home automation to hit the market" says Laurie Maroni, Vice President of Marketing at SmartLabs. 

"It can be used with virtually any web browser, but when you pair it up with an iPhone or iPod Touch you end up with an unbelievably beautiful touch screen experience at a fraction of the price of other proprietary solutions." Smarthome is featuring SmartLinc as part of four different whole-house Insteon kits, all at a discounted price. Kits will feature Best Sellers, Energy Savers, New Products, and even a customized Build Your Own Kit. For limited time only, a free iPod Touch will also be included with the purchase of a kit. Insteon home automation technology provides customized control and communication of lighting and appliances throughout the interior and exterior of a home. Insteon products let you create a network of controlled devices and scenes that make life convenient, fun and energy efficient.
