2015CES - Insteon Opens API to Developers

Developers Can Now Access the Largest Family of Home Automation and Control Products with New and Innovative Apps

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Insteon®, creators of the world's premier home automation and control technology, today announced a new RESTful API for developers to quickly and easily build compelling apps for consumers to create a range of scenes and atmospheres for their Insteon-enabled homes. The API works via the Insteon Hub, the central controller for all the smart devices in a connected home.


"In addition to the widest range of products, Insteon is committed to delivering the highest degree of flexibility in home automation and control," said Joe Dada, CEO of Insteon. "Insteon's thousands of developers play a central role in creating apps that help our consumer and business customers discover new and exciting ways to harness the power of their Insteon products. Insteon aims to unleash creativity in the ecosystem and remove obstacles in creating the Internet of Things-enabled interiors of our dreams."

Developers interested in building Insteon apps need only sign up for developer access and buy an Insteon Hub, available for $39.99 at Insteon.com. The API then allows them to build apps capable of sending a command to any Insteon Hub in the world, all under full OAuth 2.0 compliance.
