New Motion Sensor from Insteon Enhances Motion Activated Lighting

 

Irvine, California – January 18, 2017 – Insteon®, creators of the world’s premier home automation and control technology, today announced a new and improved wireless motion sensor, which makes activating lights based on movement easier than ever. With a completely redesigned body, the new Insteon motion sensor is half the size of its predecessor and features wall, corner, or tabletop placement options as well as external setup and motion override buttons – just a few of the new features that make this new motion sensor best in class.

The new Insteon motion sensor can be paired directly to switches, outlets, and plugs without an app or hub – reducing setup time to seconds. For a more customized setup and configuration experience, pair the sensor with the Insteon Hub using the free Insteon for Hub mobile app. In addition to configuring when and how the motion sensor will activate lighting, the Insteon Hub allows you to turn the motion sensor into an alert system, pushing messages to your phone when there’s motion in a particular area of the home.

“Great satisfaction and peace of mind comes with motion controlled lighting,” said Joe Dada, CEO of Insteon. "Not only does it reduce energy waste by automatically turning lights off when you leave a room, it relieves you of the hassle of reminding family members to turn lights off. And with this latest redesign, we’ve made our sensor smaller, better looking and easier than ever to place around the home.” 

In addition to features found in the previous model such as night-only mode and adjustable countdown timer, the new Insteon motion sensor adds these newer features:

  • Improved wireless performance
  • Smaller, more modular design provides easy tabletop, corner or wall mounting options
  • Motion rest button – provides a convenient way to temporarily pause motion activation
  • Sensor can be plugged into power with an optional USB cable and power adapter that also allows the sensor to act as a repeater – helping repeat Insteon signals throughout the home
  • Multi-colored setup LED and beeper aids in setup and configuration

Now accepting preorders exclusively through smarthome.com with units expected to ship the first part of February.

New Insteon Plug-In Siren

 

New Plug-In Siren Helps Make Insteon Self-Monitored Home Solutions More Robust

IRVINE, California – November 22, 2016 – Insteon®, creators of the world’s premier home automation and control technology, today announced a new plug-in siren. The Insteon Siren adds an additional layer of security and peace of mind to Insteon’s line of DIY home monitoring and control solutions.

 

 “Our customers enjoy being connected with their home when they’re away at work or on vacation,” said Joe Dada, CEO of Insteon. “While sensors can trigger lights to come on if activity is detected and notifications are sent to the customer’s phone, deterring unwanted visitors with a loud siren is a quick way to get the point across – not to mention alerting neighbors of a potential problem.”

 

This simple plug-in device works together with Insteon wireless sensors such as door/window sensors, water leak sensors, and motion sensors. Arming and disarming the audible alert is possible from Insteon wall keypads or from any other controller. Pairing it together with the Insteon Hub (2245-222) and all setup, arming/disarming, and activation can be done directly on any Android or iOS device. 

 

In addition to a loud 115 dB siren, the device also features a secondary chime tone. This provides a more subtle notification for when homeowners simply want to know that a door or gate is opened or if motion is detected.
