SmartLabs, the Leader in Home Automation Products, Announces the Release of Four New INSTEON Devices

SmartLabs, Inc. releases SeriaLinc, In-LineLinc Relay, INSTEON Motion Sensor Floodlight and INSTEON PowerLinc Modem, USB.

Irvine, CA - SmartLabs, Inc. announces the release of SeriaLinc - INSTEON to 2 -Way RS232 Serial Converter, In -LineLinc Relay - INSTEON On / Off Module (Non -dimming) w/ Sense, INSTEON Motion Sensor Floodlight and INSTEON PowerLinc Modem, USB.

From whole -home audio to security systems and automation controllers, SeriaLinc allows any Serial or RS -232 -compatible devices to operate devices on your INSTEON network. This solution will let user's keep the equipment they already own and take advantage of a reliable INSTEON network. SeriaLinc is 2 -way serial, so it can be used to control RS -232 devices or to control INSTEON devices via RS -232 commands.

In -LineLinc Relay w/Sense
The latest INSTEON In -LineLinc module is a remote control in -line On/Off switch that is able to switch dry -contact and low -voltage devices and has an external "sense" wire that triggers when a 120 VAC is detected. In comparison to previous In -LineLinc models, this is rated for 15 amps (up from 13 amps), has a smaller size that allows the unit to be placed inside more types of electrical boxes, and an added beep sounder to aid in linking.

INSTEON Motion Sensor Floodlight
The new INSTEON Floodlight will not only turn on the built -in floodlights when motion is detected but can also turn on additional lights and/or notify you that someone is outside your home. The Motion Sensor Floodlight communicates like any other device on an INSTEON network, so the floodlights can remotely controlled from anywhere. The INSTEON Motion Sensor Floodlight features adjustable time delay, night -only mode, and 110 -degree detection zone. Bulbs sold separately.

INSTEON PowerLinc Modem, USB
The INSTEON PowerLinc Modem, USB is a plug -in home automation interface that uses a USB connection and allows PC -based automation controllers to control INSTEON -compatible lights, appliances, heating/air conditioning systems and alarm systems directly via the INSTEON network.

"These new products signify our continued commitment of integrating INSTEON into complex systems as well as enhancing basic home automation functionality," says Laurie Maroni, Vice President of Marketing at SmartLabs.

INSTEON home automation technology provides customized control and communication of lighting and appliances throughout the interior and exterior of a home. INSTEON products let you create a network of controlled devices and scenes that make life convenient, fun and energy efficient.
