Customizing Alerts with Insteon Hub

With the Insteon Hub, you are able to customize the alerts that you receive from your devices. This can include adding extra email recipients to customizing the subject and body of the message that you receive. This is a good way to tell the difference between a front door and back door using multiple open/close sensors. This process would need to be performed on each alert that you want to change. To do this, follow these steps:

  • Log into your Insteon for Hub application on your phone or mobile device

  • Navigate to "Settings"

  • Tap on "Devices"

  • Tap the device you wish to customize

  • Tap on "Alerts"

  • Tap on "Message and Recipients"  (you will need to customize the "ON" alert and the "Off" alert separately)

  • Configure the email address,  subject and body of your message. You can also enable or disable push notifications.
