What is INSTEON® ?
INSTEON® is an advanced, dual-mesh home automation system that uses both electrical wiring (power lines) and wireless radio-frequency (RF) to communicate.
How INSTEON® Works
With its simple installation and setup process and reliable communication, INSTEON is set to become the industry standard in efficient home and building automation.
There are a number of home automation technologies available in Australia and New Zealand, including X10, ZigBee and Z-Wave. So how does INSTEON® compare?
INSTEON will save money on utility bills and offers the flexibility and dependability to make life more convenient, safe and fun. What will you do with your INSTEON home?
Greatest Range & Reliability
With our unique and patented dual-mesh technology, Insteon signals travel further without interruption than any other technology. And thanks to Dual-Band, powerline and wireless obstructions rarely impede signals, resulting in 100x more reliability than single-band networks.
Greatest Scalability & Compatibility
In the world of wireless home control, your house is a battleground full of obstacles. Insteon solves this problem by simultaneously using a wireless radio and your home’s existing powerline wiring. The result is reliability that no other wireless technology can match.
Insteon is the only home control technology that uses both wireless and your home’s powerlines to create a robust network that can easily handle common household interference from microwaves and WiFi or signal blockades like concrete, masonry or steel studs.
With Insteon, every device can repeat messages across the network, eliminating the bottlenecks that occur when a single device fails in a routed network. And because Insteon is Dual-Band, the mesh network extends over both wireless and wired Insteon devices.
In an Insteon network, there are no routers or administrative devices. Each device can control (or be controlled) by each other device without any complicated hierarchy of device profiles.
Utilizing Simulcast, a broadcast-like system, Insteon can address hundreds+ of nodes simultaneously and without complicated and expensive signal routing.
Our pioneering Statelink technology ensures forwards and backwards compatibility with old, new and future automation devices by placing the onus of compatibility on the controlled device; devices don’t need to know anything about one another for successful control.
