Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty good... until the gremlins attack. I started with Insteon because I needed to be able to c... Pretty good... until the gremlins attack. I started with Insteon because I needed to be able to control the upper and lower outlet in the same box independently, and they offered the easiest solution I could find. That was promising, so I built out a few rooms and added motion detectors for the closet lights, since my family constantly leave those lights on. So far, so good: Closet lights shut off 30 seconds after the last motion is detected, kitchen & living room set up, porch lights automated to turn on at dusk & off at dawn, and one bedroom set up to control multiple lamps and the ceiling fan. Programming via the app was a bit clunky, and definitely slow, but I was satisfied with the end result. Until things started going wrong. The started small at first, but every few weeks, we'd notice another. * When we'd turn the kitchen light switch on, not only would the kitchen lights come on, so would the dining room lights. Turning the switch off would turn off the kitchen lights, but leave the dining room lights on. * The bedroom keypad started clicking with every keypress, even though the app settings had that box unchecked. * Turning on one of the lamps in the bedroom would start the ceiling fan. * Turning off the ceiling fan (via its dedicated switch) would dim one of the lamp keypad switches while the associated lamp's state remained unchanged. * Our outdoor light timer ended up on a completely different schedule than our days/nights, and resetting the hub clock didn't change anything. And so on. Every few weeks, we'd notice another odd behavior. So I called support, and they asked if I'd been removing devices from the system without removing them from scenes first. I definitely had, since the instructions don't warn against it and the app UI allows it. Unfortunately, the back end software isn't so robust, and those old settings were ghosts in the machine, orphaned and inaccessible from the app. Support's recommendation for solving this was to factory-reset the entire system and start over. They claim to be working on a software fix, but it's at least six months out. More and more gremlins kept creeping in, so I finally did the reset and re-programming, which took five (5) hours. TL;DR: Insteon is a neat system, and worked fine for small jobs, but the clunky, slow app isn't ready for prime time--especially when the gremlins creep in, support leaves you out in the cold, and you need to start over.

This is an unreliable product and know before you purchase one of these Hub’s that there is a very high failure rate. I’m on my 3rd HUB now and there are some things that you need to know before you buy one. Things that the promotional hype won’t mention. When it works, it’s fine, but when it fails, you’re screwed. My 1st Hub #2245-222 lasted almost a year before it failed. My 2nd Hub lasted just over 2 years. I came home to a dark house one evening and after some diagnosis, discovered that the Hub had failed. When the Hub is dead, you can’t control anything. When I got the replacement, that’s when the real fun began. Replacing a failed Hub with a new one is not a simple ‘plug & play’ swap. You will need to get the device codes from Intseon to get your system up and running again and you will have to manually type all of the code in. You will have to delete your account and set up a new account and you will need Insteon’s help to do this. All of this requires help from customer service over the telephone. Plan on being on the phone for well over an hour plus another hour (or two) setting everything back up. All of your scenes will be lost and you will have to spend time reconfiguring your APP to get them setup again. I’m amazed that this data cannot be saved and uploaded to the new Hub in a much easier fashion. You would think that Insteon would figure out which component within the Hub keeps failing and redesign a fix. This product is unreliable and cumbersome to change when there is a failure. There are many other systems out in the market now and I’m hoping to find something else to take its place.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from What I like about the hub is that I am able to control 5 Insteon switches with the Amazon Echo. ... What I like about the hub is that I am able to control 5 Insteon switches with the Amazon Echo. It's nice to be able to say "Alexa turn on the kitchen lights." and bingo on they come. The problem is that the hub that was delivered to me was apparently defective or out of date. It would not accept Arizona MST. The Android and MS Phone Apps did not seem to function correctly. I was unable to save the correct time, setup scenes or schedules with either of the apps. The IOS app however seemed to work ok. Insteon support was quite accessible and responsive but were not able to resolve my problems. After about an hour of telephone support and several e-mails Insteon recommended replacing my hub. As I am writing this that process is underway but Insteon support was closing for the day. If Insteon replaces my hub with one that operates correctly I will write another review with a better rating. The only reason I recommend this product is because Insteon is on of the Alexa skills. The 2 stars is because the hub will not accept the correct time, scenes and schedules.
