Home Security Corliss Group Experts - If gadgets haven’t embedded themselves deeply enough in your life, then maybe you need a home automation system. The term has come to encompass a huge range of gear, as we discussed yesterday- everything from smart locks to garage door controls have jumped on the bandwagon. But today we’re looking at a separate ecosystem of products, one from a company that’s been working in the field for more than two decades. It might not include support for any
kitchen appliances but does feature thermostats and IP surveillance cameras, and is available in individual parts or as a complete set.
Out of the box, the Insteon Connected Kit (model 2582-242, ours labeled Revision 1.1) includes just about everything you could want. Let’s break it down: you’ll get the core hub, a fairly normal pan/tilt security camera, a thermostat, a pair of dimmer modules, as well as a set of sensors for motion, some that fit onto your doors or windows, and even one for leaks. Insteon offers a whole lot of other accessories, including power meters and smoke sensors, plus a whole lot of other things that will come in handy like a huge variety of switches and remotes and outlets. Of course, most people will simply want to use an app to control most things, but we did miss having physical controls and it was the most unusual absence of the package.
