Insteon’s home automation app for Windows 8 is here now
The INSTEON Hub works in combination with your router and smartphone or tablet to control INSTEON devices in your home while you’re there, when you’re at work, or out of town. The INSTEON for Hub app works in concert with the Hub to automatically configure your Hub and router for remote access – so simple, anyone can do it. Want to turn on your bedside lamp automatically to help wake you up in the morning? How about program the porch light to turn on and off automatically with the rise and fall of the sun? No problem. Create alerts by adding 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 at anytime. Wonder what triggered the motion sensor or just want to check in on the kids or your pets? Add a wireless camera and you’ll see it all from your smartphone. The INSTEON cameras feature pan/tilt control and night vision. Setting up this camera within the INSTEON for Hub app is the easiest setup that you have ever seen! The INSTEON Hub stores your homes configuration in the cloud which allows access from any number of smartphones and tablets you may own. Add another smartphone by simply downloading the app, sign in and enjoy.
