Insteon Showcases Comprehensive Home Automation Capabilities at CES 2016 – Business Wire (press release)

LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Insteon®,
creators of the world’s premier home automation and control technology,
today announced an impressive year of significant industry growth
consisting of key CE partnerships, retail expansion and home automation
integration with some of the world’s leading technology companies.
Insteon will be highlighting its comprehensive home automation
capabilities at CES in booth 70723, located in the upper level of Tech
West, Sands Expo.

“Over the past year, Insteon has won recognition from some of the
biggest names in consumer electronics. Iconic brands including Apple
HomeKit, Amazon Echo, Google Nest, Logitech Harmony, among others, have
tapped into Insteon’s power to create an always-connected lifestyle
where all your things work together in perfect harmony,” said Joe Dada,
CEO of Insteon. “Insteon has captured the attention of the home
automation industry and has found a sweet spot among technophiles,
DIY-ers and business customers who want innovative products, complete
reliability, undeniable quality and ultimate flexibility – all at an
affordable price. With retail distribution at more than 3,000 locations,
Insteon is truly at the center of the connected home.”

Noteworthy CE Integrations

Insteon has streamlined home automation by integrating with a number of
consumer electronics leaders. Now, Sonos owners can control, schedule
and automate their speakers from the Insteon Hub. Through this
integration, you can play, pause or skip a song directly through the
Insteon for Hub app for iOS or from an Insteon wall keypad or wireless
remote. You can even schedule your tunes alongside your lights to create
rich transitions from day and night or set automated triggers that would
turn on your Sonos speaker whenever motion is sensed or doors are
opened/closed.

In June, the company launched the HomeKit-enabled Insteon
Hub Pro
, one of the first products certified to work with Apple
HomeKit. The Hub Pro allows iOS users to manage their homes through Siri
with the Insteon+ mobile app. Insteon also enables voice control through
the Amazon Echo, so Insteon
Hub
users can ask Alexa to turn on/off various connected devices
throughout their homes. The Insteon Hub also works with the Nest
Learning Thermostat, integrating with Google’s Rush Hour Rewards
program. Finally, through a partnership with Logitech Harmony, users can
control Insteon devices through any Harmony hub based remote.

These partnerships are further proof that Insteon will make consumer
choice the center of its platform by offering seamless compatibility and
integration with top product manufacturers, ensuring that a connected
home filled with Insteon will never be stuck in the dark ages of IoT.

Expansive Retail Distribution

Over the past year, Insteon’s retail availability has grown 20 percent
with products currently available in more than 3,000 locations at major
retailers such as Costco, Home Depot, Meijer, Menards and Micro Center.
Based on strong and sustained consumer demand, new retailers continue to
request Insteon products online and in-store. Insteon has also expanded
its availability globally, offering home automation products through
Philex/Screwfix in the UK and signing an exclusive distribution
partnership with Smartnex in Brazil.

Innovative Product Development

Insteon continues to be a leading product manufacturer with a product
line of more than 200 connected devices available at retailers around
the globe. Recently, Insteon announced the Insteon
2867-22 Alert Module
that allows Insteon sensors to sound an alarm
whenever triggered. Perfect for consumers who want instant notifications
if doors or cupboards are opened, motion is sensed or water leaks are
detected, the module features two distinct sound options and can be
remotely armed or disarmed with Insteon controllers. The device
currently retails for $39.99.

The company also announced a new member to their temperate sensing and
control solution, the Insteon
2732 Thermostat for Heat Pumps
. This new version allows control over
HVAC systems with a heat pump. Home owners can use this thermostat to
save on energy costs by remotely controlling and programming their heat
pump system. The device currently retails for $149.99.
