Smarthome Introduces New I/O Linc Morning Industry Lock Control Kit

October 13, 2009

IRVINE, Calif. - Smarthome announced the release of the new I/O Linc - Insteon Morning Industry Lock Control Kit today. The kit, which includes two I/O Lincs and a Morning Industry RF Remote Control Key Fob, allows users to activate the locking mechanism of Morning Industry RF deadbolts and/or doorlocks (sold separately) via radio frequency (RF) to lock or unlock their door from any Insteon controller.

"Morning Industry's products have always been highly rated by our customers," noted Laurie Maroni, Vice President of Marketing at SmartLabs Inc., the parent company of Smarthome. "Adding the ability to control their RF deadbolts and doorlocks with Insteon further signifies our commitment of integrating Insteon into all aspects of home control."

The kit acts as a bridge between Insteon devices and Morning Industry's RF deadbolts and doorlocks. When I/O Linc receives a signal from any linked Insteon device, it sends that signal to the remote, which translates the Insteon signal into a radio frequency (RF) command to lock or unlock Morning Industry RF deadbolts and/or doorlocks. One kit can control as many locks as are in range of the remote. This kit also gives the consumer the control to regulate access to their property from anywhere in the world using the SmartLinc Insteon Central Controller.

"We're excited that Smarthome has developed a simple, cost effective way of using Insteon to remotely activate our RF deadbolts and door locks at the touch of a button," stated Matt Jordan, VP of Sales at Morning Industry. "This brings a whole new feature set to our product line."

This kit and all Morning Industry deadbolts, doorlocks and accessories can be purchased at www.smarthome.com/morningindustry. All Insteon products can be purchased atwww.smarthome.com/insteon.

SmartLabs the Leader in Home Automation Products, Announces the Release of I/O LINC - Insteon Keypad Control Kit and I/O Linc - Insteon Rain Sensor Kit

June 11, 2009

IRVINE, Calif. - SmartLabs, Inc. is pleased to announce the latest releases in their line of I/O Linc Insteon Low Voltage / Contact Closure Interface Kits: I/O Linc - Insteon Keypad Control Kit and I/O Linc - Insteon Rain Sensor Kit.


About I/O Linc Insteon Low Voltage / Contact Closure Interface
I/O Linc is a universal Insteon interface with contact closure sensor input and a low voltage / contact closure relay output, monitors and controls any low voltage device. Thanks to several different output relay modes, I/O Linc can easily adapt to different types of devices. "Contact closure and low voltage are used to automate a wide array of home systems and devices," says Laurie Maroni Vice President of Marketing at SmartLabs,"I/O Linc is flexible enough to support each type of home system and affordable enough for several to be placed around the home." For the same price as a single low voltage interface with many inputs and outputs, several I/O Linc modules can be placed around the house in the locations where they are needed.

I/O Linc - Insteon Keypad Control Kit
The I/O Linc - Insteon Keypad Control Kit enhances your Insteon network by giving you the ability to operate Insteon-controlled devices via a numeric code. By entering a numeric code into the keypad, an Insteon signal can be sent to unlock doors for access control (door lock sold separately) and/or initiate lighting scenes using Insteon devices such as Dimmers and SwitchesWire-in/Outlet Modules and/or Plug-in Modules. The keypad can be programmed with 56 individual access codes, each assigned to an authorized individual user or to a group of users. 

I/O Linc - Insteon Rain Sensor Kit
Combining the features of I/O Linc and a rain sensor, this kit will allow users to be alerted in the event of excess liquid (rain and/or water) build-up. The rain sensor can be placed anywhere where you would like to detect the accumulation of water. As soon as water starts to collect, the rain sensor will trigger I/O Linc to turn any Insteon controlled lights or appliances on or off, notifying you of the condition. When used in conjunction with other I/O Linc kits, it can be used to trigger sprinklers to automatically shut-off when it rains, saving water and money, or it can be placed near the foundation of your home to help detect detrimental standing water and flooding.
