IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Insteon®, creators of the world’s premier home automation and control technology, today announced the ability to control and monitor Insteon devices from the Apple Watch. Insteon users are now able to control lights, appliances, thermostats and scenes from the Apple Watch. In addition, they can view Insteon cameras and monitor a variety of sensors—including motion, door/window, smoke/CO, and water leak—as well as receive instant alerts as soon as they are triggered.
“We are proud to be among the first in the connected home space to release support for Apple Watch especially given our wide variety of connected home devices,” said Joe Dada, CEO at Insteon. “We believe our new solution for the Apple Watch further establishes Insteon as a leader in home automation and underscores our commitment to making Insteon accessible for anyone, from anywhere.”
The Insteon Hub and Apple Watch make remotely controlling your connected home devices easier than ever. With just a few taps on your Apple Watch, you have access to everything you need, without the hassle of having to reach for your smartphone. Just raise your wrist, go to the app, and select the desired Insteon device. Seconds count when it comes to monitoring your home activity. Apple Watch puts alerts where you can get them fast. What’s more, with Insteon cameras on your Apple Watch, you can actually see what’s happening in real time.
“Insteon understands that, in our busy world, it’s a challenge to stay connected to what matters,” said Dada at Insteon. “If a phone is buried in your pocket or purse, you might miss an alert warning you that someone has just opened your garage. Or that your sink has just sprung a leak. With Apple Watch and Insteon, you’ll be closer than ever to what matters most.”
Apple Watch users can now control and get alerts from Insteon’s most popular products, including:
- Wall switches, dimmers and outlets
- Plug-in modules for lamps and appliances
- Ceiling fan controllers
- Garage door controller/sensor
- Sensors: leak, smoke/CO, door/window, motion
