Insteon Announces Availability of Popular Connected Home Products in Microsoft Retail Stores

June 30, 2014

IRVINE, Calif. - Insteon, creators of the world’s best-selling home automation and control technology, today announced that its connected home devices are now available in Microsoft retail stores. Previously, Insteon announced its all-new apps for Windows Phone and Windows 8.1 and product availability on MicrosoftStore.com

In its continuing commitment to provide choice, value and service for its customers, Microsoft stores will offer three unique Insteon kits -- a Starter Kit, Home Kit and Business Kit -- and five standalone devices, including the Insteon Leak Sensor, Open/Close Sensor, LED Bulb, On/Off Module and Wireless Wi-Fi Camera. Prices will range from $29.99 to $79.99, with kits starting at $199. Microsoft employees will also be trained to help assist customers with questions regarding setup.

“Since launching Insteon on MicrosoftStore.com, we have seen a lot of interest from Microsoft customers in our connected products,” said Joe Dada, CEO, Insteon. “Now that we are making those same products available to Microsoft retail customers, we are confident that our products will be equally as popular in stores.”

The Insteon family of devices turns any home into a connected home. Insteon users are able to set up lighting scenes, schedule lights to automatically turn on and off, and monitor their homes via wireless cameras from any mobile device. Insteon kits and modules allow users to receive instant notification alerts when doors and windows are opened or closed, or when there is a water leak in the home. Insteon provides all of this and more via a free app with no monthly fees.

Insteon’s reliable dual-band technology uses both the existing wires (power line) in the home and radio-frequency (RF) communication instead of relying on spotty Wi-Fi connections and routers, which dictate where smart devices must be placed to work properly. By making every networked device talk to each other via RF and the power line, Insteon eliminates the need for custom wiring and ensures that every device is always connected. Adding remote control and automation to everything from home monitoring to lighting, Insteon’s dual-band network and devices allow users to manage the home or office in more variations than any other home automation technology.
