Important notes

  • To communicate with Smart Meters, ISY994i ZS must be provisioned by your utility provider
  • ISY994i ZS requires an INSTEON serial PLM (not included). PLM model numbers 2412S or 2413S are compatible with ISY and are available directly from Smarthome
  • ISY994i ZS does not require a power supply when used with a PLM which supplies power via the RJ-45 port (for example, PLM model #2412S)
  • ISY994i ZS does provide a port for an optional AC adapter for instances where the PLM does not supply power, or the user prefers to supply power independent of the PLM (for example, PLM model #2413S). ISY power supplies can be purchased from all our distributors and resellers
ISY Model:
There are two decisions you need to make when choosing a model.  You must ask yourself if you would like to add IR communication capabilities to the ISY.  This would allow you have ISY respond to your audio / visual remote control.  The IR sensor is on the unit.  Consider if you will be locating the ISY-99i where it can "see" IR commands.  If you do not desire IR control or you will be locating the ISY outside of IR reception, then do not choose the IR model.  IR Insteon control can be added later by adding an Insteon IRLinc receiver at the desired IR reception location.  You must also ask yourself how large of an installation you anticipate having.  The pro model offers support for up to 1056 devices, scenes and programs while the standard model supports 256.  Please note that requirements vary significantly.  We recommend purchasing the PRO model if you plan on having over 30 Insteon devices installed.  This allows you plenty of programming capability per device.  If you will have less that 30 Insteon devices, then stick with the standard model.  Our Orchestrated MobiLinc application can create upwards of 5 - 10 programs per device when used to its full capabilities.
Add-On Modules:
The Climate module allows ISY to evaluate weather phenomena in your area and can be used to adjust irrigation systems or other automated systems that need to be aware of the ambient weather conditions.  This module can be a great resource saver and also provides the ability to quickly see the local weather via your internet connected device such as an iPhone.  The Brultech energy meter module is used to evaluate energy usage as reported by a Brultech energy meter which can be installed near your home's power meter.  Awareness of energy consumption and the rate that is being charged for that usage can create a great opportunity for savings.
The ISY Portal w/Network module adds the optional ability to synchronize your ISY in the cloud on the Universal-Devices server which greatly simplifies remote access as well as makes possible integration with web based applications such as the Amazon Echo's ISY skill for voice command of your devices and IFTTT (If this then that) web based triggers your favorite web based applications / Social Media applications plus much more.  The Network feature is now included as part of this module allowing users to use their ISY as a web server to serve up your own applications, pictures, and files. The module also inculdes Wake On Lan (turn your computers on using ISY progrmas) and Network Resources which enable you to call any network resource (TCP/UDP/HTTP/HTTPS).
