Insteon®, creators of the world's premier home automation and control technology, today announced a new Insteon App supporting Apple HomeKit technology for home management.

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Consumer Electronics Show - Insteon®, creators of the world's premier home automation and control technology, today announced a new Insteon App supporting Apple HomeKit technology for home management. With the HomeKit-enabled Insteon App, users can control any HomeKit-enabled device, regardless of brand or product type. Insteon is also offering a new HomeKit-enabled Insteon Hub, which brings Insteon switches, outlets, thermostats, and light bulbs into the HomeKit ecosystem. The Insteon Hub featuring HomeKit technology is available for pre-order at $149.99.


HomeKit delivers a common protocol, secure pairing and the ability to easily control individual or groups of products throughout the house including integration with Siri®, Apple's personal voice assistant. With HomeKit, you can create scenarios to direct Siri, such as "Bedtime, Siri," that would dim the lights, lock the doors, close the garage door and set the thermostat.

The new Insteon App will work with all HomeKit-enabled products from various manufacturers and protocols, providing a simple, singular method for consumers to control connected devices.

"We're thrilled to launch our HomeKit-enabled Insteon App and Insteon Hub. This brings together more products from more manufacturers under a single platform than we've ever seen," said Joe Dada, CEO, Insteon. "Support for HomeKit technology for home management will allow us to provide a simple and easy experience for our customers, with the ability to securely pair and control devices throughout the house including integration with Siri."
