Irvine, CA - July 8th, 2009 - SmartLabs, Inc. is pleased to publicize the latest releases in the growing collection of I/O Linc INSTEON Low Voltage / Contact Closure Interface Kits: I/O Linc - INSTEON Audio / Video Detector Probe Kit, I/O Linc - INSTEON LED and Light Detector Probe Kit and I/O Linc - INSTEON Low Voltage Detector Probe Kit




About I/O Linc INSTEON Low Voltage / Contact Closure Interface

I/O Linc is a universal INSTEON interface with contact closure sensor input and a low voltage / contact closure relay output, monitors and controls any low voltage device. Thanks to several different output relay modes, I/O Linc can easily adapt to different types of devices. "Contact closure and low voltage are used to automate a wide array of home systems and devices," says Laurie Maroni Vice President of Marketing at SmartLabs, "I/O Linc is flexible enough to support each type of home system and affordable enough for several to be placed around the home." For the same price as a single low voltage interface with many inputs and outputs, several I/O Linc modules can be placed around the house in the locations where they are needed.

I/O Linc - INSTEON Audio / Video Detector Probe Kit

This kit will activate a scene in your home theater that will turn on (or off) INSTEON controlled lights and/or appliances when you power up a audio/video (A/V) component. The Audio / Video Detector Probe senses when an A/V component has been turned on to trigger INSTEON controlled devices. Now when you turn on a piece of your home theater equipment, an INSTEON signal will be sent to set the ambiance in the room by lowering lighting levels, turning on a ceiling fan, activating your HVAC system or even to monitor the TV usage of your children.



I/O Linc - INSTEON LED and Light Detector Probe Kit

By using a Light Detector Probe in conjunction with I/O Linc, this will sense when an LED, incandescent or fluorescent light is turned on and activate a scene in your home theater that will turn on (or off) INSTEON controlled lights and/or appliances. The probe can be placed over an LED power indicator on an A/V component or it can be placed near an incandescent or fluorescent light source. When the light source is detected, an INSTEON signal will be sent to set the ambiance in the room by lowering lighting levels, turning on a ceiling fan, activating your HVAC system or even to monitor whenever your children are using their TV, A/V components, or when they turn their lights on.



I/O Linc - INSTEON Low Voltage Detector Probe Kit

Combining the features of I/O Linc and a Low Voltage Detector Probe, this kit will allow users to create an automated scene that will turn on (or off) INSTEON controlled lights and/or appliances whenever a device with low voltage power is turned on. When power (from 3V to 24V AC or DC) has been turned on a signal is sent to I/O Linc which in turn will trigger INSTEON controlled devices. It is ideal for use with relay type devices, such as keypad access control systems. When power is applied to the switched relay (i.e. a code is entered on keypad), low voltage is sensed and INSTEON scenes will be triggered. Have an audible signal activated, alerting you that a visitor has arrived - or simply create a lighting scene that will provide safety as you enter your home at night.
