The Hub works in combination with your router and smartphone or tablet to control INSTEON devices in your home while you're there or when you're at work - or even on vacation.

    Works great

    Had some difficulty setting this up, had to get SmartHome to troubleshoot over phone, but in the end we worked it out. Works great now.

    Simple - in a good and bad way
    Review by Granton 6/09/2015
    I own both the INSTEON Hub and Vera 3 (Z-Wave), so I'm in a good position to compare both systems. Overall the INSTEON Hub is way easier to use and I have to say more reliable than the Vera. That's the good side. On the negative side, don't expect to do much in the way of advanced home automation. Granted it will do the basic stuff, and do it well, but it is missing some of the fancier stuff you can do with Vera.

    Easy to setup
    Review by Wayneon 16/08/2015
    Easy to setup and add devices. It's a good idea to start with a starter pack if you can.

    Could not get port forwarding to work
    Review by Jason Dibattistaon 8/04/2015
    Looks like a great product - if it worked with my router! Could not get port forwarding to work on my Asus router. SmartHome support were great, however we could not resolve the issue. In the end I got a refund.

    Android and iOS App is awesome
    Review by Wattoon 5/10/2014
    I am able to use the Hub from my iPad, Nexus 5 or Surface 2, with all of my settings shared which is really handy. The Windows app needs some work to catch up to the Android and iOS apps though (-1 star for performance until Windows app is updated). The actual Hub i consider to be good value and quality (5 stars).

    5 stars all-round
    Review by C. Drummondon 1/10/2014
    Haven't put my phone down since receiving the Hub and my INSTEON gear. Lot's of fun (I have managed to find some very practical uses too!). Solid product and the app is great.

    Thermostat control from my phone
    Review by Suzanneon 27/09/2014
    I purchased the Insteon hub and the insteon thermostat on the advice of a friend, as I was always leaving the heater on when I left for work. The thermostat was a bit difficult for me to install on my own (my friend had to help), the instructions could be easier! But it's been a lifesaver - I've had to turn the heater off with my phone on more than one occasion! The app is great. Looking to expand with some sort of lighting control soon too.

    Works really well
    Review by DylanHon 14/09/2014
    The app for the hub works really well on my iphone and galaxy tab. Easy to setup and use, once you get use to it. There are some slight differences between the apple and android apps (I prefer the apple app) - overall I highly recommend this product.
