Wirelessly control the lighting in your home with the INSTEON Home Automation Starter Kit. The included INSTEON Hub features Ethernet connectivity for interfacing with your home network. Once connected, you can download the free INSTEON control app for setting up and controlling your connected devices from a smartphone, tablet, or computer. The app can be found in the Google Play, Apple, Amazon, and Windows app stores. Mac OS X and Linux users can enjoy browser-based system control. In addition to the included Dimmer Modules, the INSTEON Hub supports a variety of INSTEON home automation devices including sensors, thermostats, and LED bulbs.

Each included Dimmer Module has a 2-prong interface for connecting a lamp for remote lighting control. Using the INSTEON user interface, you can control light output by selecting a specific percentage. Brightness and dimming buttons are also located directly on the module. In addition to basic on and off control, you can even set lighting schedules and scenes. Once your system is configured, there are no monthly service fees or contract agreements required for operation.


Create Schedules
With just a few taps, you can schedule your INSTEON devices to turn on and off at sunrise, sunset, or any time during the day.
Dual Band
Full dual-band support helps to ensure that your INSTEON commands are widely transmitted throughout your home.
Control at Home or Away
The Hub works in combination with your router and smartphone or tablet to control INSTEON devices in your home while you're there, or from a remote location. Instructions on how to set up remote access are included in the app, or you can call and have INSTEON support set it up for you.
Instant Notification with Optional Sensors
Create alerts by adding optional devices like water leak sensors, motion sensors, door/window sensors, and more. The INSTEON Hub will send text and email alerts to you as well as anyone else you wish. The Hub also stores the status of these sensors, so you can easily check on your sensors from within the app anytime.
Cloud Storage
The INSTEON Hub stores your home's configuration in the cloud, which allows you to access this information wherever Internet access is available. If you want to add another smartphone or tablet, you can download the app, sign in, and all your settings (devices, scenes, icons, timers, etc.) are there to enjoy.
Wireless IP Camera Compatible
Add an optional wireless camera and you can see what the camera sees from your smartphone, tablet, or computer. The INSTEON cameras feature pan/tilt control and night vision.
Thermostat Compatible
You can control the optional Nest Learning Thermostat alongside your INSTEON devices. You can turn up the heat in the winter and lower the temperature during the summer. Once you set up temperature zones for each scenario, you can toggle back and forth between zones without leaving the INSTEON app.
Legacy Compatibility
INSTEON devices take advantage of powerline signaling to remain compatible with legacy X10 devices and controllers. While the INSTEON Hub supports X10, it supports the basic control and scheduling of your X10 devices.
Ready for International Use
The INSTEON Hub and a wide-range of INSTEON modules are available for many parts of continental Europe, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.

Dimmer Modules

Bring Your Own Plug-In Lamp
The INSTEON Dimmer Module lets you connect any plug-in lamp. If the lamp has a two-prong plug, the Dimmer Module will give you the power to control its lighting remotely.
Custom On-Level
A customizable On-Level lets you pick how bright your lamp is when you turn it on. Set the brightness to be anywhere from 1 to 100%.
Programmable Ramp Rate
Ramp Rates let you specify how quickly or slowly a lamp turns on, slowly brightening from off to on over the course of 0.1 seconds to 8 minutes.
Complete Scene Support
Control multiple lights from a single button with Scenes. Using the INSTEON Hub, you can set lighting conditions for specific events such as watching movies. Scenes let you fade lights in and out with preset On-Levels and Ramp Rates.
Mini Remote Compatible
Featuring a compact design, the optional Mini Remote allows you to control your Dimmer Module from anywhere in your home without using the INSTEON app on your smartphone or tablet.
