Away from Home Control
In much the same way as the At-Home setup works, while you are away from home you can access your INSTEON network using SmartLinc in conjunction with any internet connection or Wi-Fi hotspot. Simply identify your home's IP address and type it into your mobile device, then you can turn devices on or off at anytime, from anywhere, with the same reliability as you would have at home.

Whether you are at-home or away from home, scheduling timers for devices on your INSTEON network is a valuable way to not only make your life easier but to manage the amount of energy consumption that is taking place. Timers can be set up from your PC or mobile device for one On time and one Off time for every scene in SmartLinc.
Pre-Organized, User-Defined Rooms
SmartLinc - INSTEON Central Controller takes remote access of your INSTEON home automation network a step further. It gives you the ability to apply unique names and labels for devices and scenes and then further organize those into rooms. By assigning your own naming convention, you define the simplicity of navigating your own network.
View Power Consumption
Get instant access to power consumption (wattage) of a device from any smartphone or web-enabled computer using SmartLinc and an iMeter Solo. If you already own SmartLinc and would like to view the power consumption of the iMeter, simply update your .bin file. SmartLinc currently supports viewing the wattage of one iMeter.
NOTE: By default, SmartLinc allows you to populate up to 15 rooms. If using the SmartLinc .bin file with iMeter Solo support, SmartLinc will only support population of up to 14 rooms. If you are currently using room 15, please be sure to move those devices/scenes to another room before you update your .bin file.
IP Camera Support
SmartLinc - INSTEON Central Controller enables you access a network surveillance camera so that you can watch your home while you control it, all from a web-enabled device. Turn on your interior lights or your yard lights; and from the same screen watch it happen. We recommend the Smarthome Wireless IP Camera, sold separately, and consider it to be a valuable tool that integrates your home automation and security into one.

Don't Block Your Outlets

This outlet allows you to plug in additional AC devices without affecting the SmartLinc. While the outlet doesn't have any control features, it really helps against "power strip buildup." If you have large power adapters or other plug-in modules obstructing outlets, consider adding one of Smarthome's power strip liberators.
