Essential Info

The Serial INSTEON PowerLinc Modem is a serial-based home automation interface that allows PC- and hardware-based automation controllers to control INSTEON-compatible lights, appliances, heating/air conditioning systems and alarm systems directly via the INSTEON network. This home automation interface uses simple RS-232 commands, allowing any device with a programmable serial port to send INSTEON commands easily, making controllers such as SimpleHomeNet's and Universal Devices' IP bridges instantly INSTEON compatible. The dual-band interface sends and receives both powerline and radio frequency (RF) INSTEON signals, so it doubles as an Access Point. This makes it ideal for new INSTEON installs and if have or plan to use an RF-only INSTEON-compatible remote, thermostat, motion sensor and contact sensor.

Please Note: The controller connected to the Serial INSTEON PowerLinc Modem must remain powered on and running the controller program connected to the controller or host at all times of usage.

Please Note: 12V 300mA power source is not provided on this unit as it is on the older Insteon 2412S. This power source is often used to power the host controller such as the ISY-99i/994i. This power transformer is now included in box with the purchase of the ISY-994i controller.
