Overview: The Insteon Comfort Kit lets you wirelessly control your
thermostat and dim the lights from your smartphone, tablet, or computer via
Wi-Fi. The kit
includes the Insteon hub, a replacement thermostat, and two lamp
dimmer modules. You can expand the Comfort Kit by adding more Insteon devices.
Important Note: The Insteon Thermostat is not compatible with heat pumps or
line voltage systems.
Insteon Hub: The Insteon Hub is the interface between your smartphone,
tablet, or computer and the Insteon devices. You will need to download and
install the Insteon for Hub app from the Apple App Store or Google Play on your
mobile device, or HouseLinc for your PC. The hub lets you setup, control, and
manage the devices, including setting up timers and schedules, program the
devices, and receive alerts. The hub plugs into a wall outlet and your internet
router using the supplied power and Ethernet cables.
Insteon Thermostat: The Insteon Thermostat is a 7-day programmable
thermostat that replaces your HVAC system's thermostat. It includes a humidity
sensor and 2-stage heating and 2-stage cooling capabilities. You can expand the
system by creating extra temperature zones in your home by adding one or more
Wireless Thermostats to the system. On the outside, the thermostat has two
controls: Up/down buttons to adjust the temperature set point, and a Mode button
to select the operational mode of the HVAC system: Heat, Cool, Auto, Time of
Day, and Off. Behind the cover, you'll find another 7 controls: Set, Program,
Time/Sensor, Master, Fan, Hold, and Energy (Leaf).
Note: The thermostat is compatible with 24-volt based heating and cooling systems, including 1- and 2-stage heating, 1- and 2-stage cooling, and forced air fan.
Insteon Plug-in Dimmer Module: The Insteon Comfort Kit
contains two plug-in dimmer modules. These modules plug into a standard 2- or
3-pronged receptacle, and can be used to control a lamp or other plug-in device.
You can control a light remotely, or use the side-mounted controls to
dim/brighten the lamp, or turn on/off locally. The integrated dimmer has 32 dim
levels and 32 ramp rates. The setup state is stored in non-volatile memory, so
you won't have to reset them after a power outage. This dual-band dimmer module
transmits and receives Insteon commands over the power line or via RF signals,
and can also be used as an access point.
Note: The dimmer module controls all standard incandescent lamps
and other plug-in devices up to 300 watts.
It cannot be used with compact fluorescent bulbs.
