The multi award-winning, industry-leading INSTEON® home automation system is now available in Australia and New Zealand.

INSTEON® is an advanced, dual-mesh home automation system that uses both electrical wiring (power lines) and wireless radio-frequency (RF) to communicate. Dual-mesh technology overcomes the shortfalls affecting many other automation technologies, providing a reliable, responsive, simple (yet powerful) home automation system.

From basic lighting and appliance control through to complete integrated systems, INSTEON® lets you manage your home the way you want - offering the flexibility and dependability to make your life more efficient, convenient, safe and fun.

INSTEON uses a unique, dual-band approach to provide reliability not attainable by single band technologies. Using both the existing wires (power line) in the home and radio-frequency communication, INSTEON adds remote control and automation to lighting, appliance and home control applications of all types. From lighting control to integrated security systems, INSTEON allows you to manage your home the way you want. Easy to install and set up, INSTEON offers the flexibility and dependability to make life more convenient, safe and fun. It's never been more exciting to turn the lights off.

Over 200 INSTEON products mean that virtually any control or sensing solution in a home or business can be accomplished. Millions of units in the field and the INSTEON’s team’s passion for perfection have led to the highest quality and most reliable product line available.

Quick Comparison

INSTEON is the most reliable and cost effective home automation technology available anywhere in the world. It is the only home automation standard that features dual mesh technology; this gives it a big advantage over its competitors. In fact, INSTEON is the simplest, yet most powerful home automation system available.


INSTEON is the most reliable and best-selling wireless home-control networking technology. INSTEON offers more scalability and flexibility than any other home management system on the market. INSTEON is the only technology that simultaneously utilizes both wireless RF and the powerlines (electrical wires) in a building. This produces unsurpassed reliability.


Dual-band – INSTEON signals travel through the air and over electrical wires at the same time. Since issues with each physical medium seldom co-exist at any particular location, each helps to work around issues on the other. Data indicates that error rates are approximately 100 times less likely given this dual-band advantage. INSTEON is the only technology that has this dual-band advantage.


There is no practical limit to the size of an INSTEON network (the theoretical limit is currently 16.7 million). Installations over 400 nodes are fairly common. One installation is approaching 2,000 nodes. Another installation automates the building systems in a 600,000 SF industrial building. Most other networking technologies cannot scale beyond 256 nodes.


Utilizing a unique Statelink technology, a single INSTEON signal can simultaneously activate hundreds or even thousands of devices simultaneously. Other technologies need to send much more data. None can compare with the actual throughput of INSTEON.


INSTEON is the most price competitive technology on the market.

Guaranteed Forwards and Backwards Compatibility

INSTEON’s Statelink technology guarantees both forward and backwards compatibility amongst products. No other networking technology enjoys this advantage.
