This latest INSTEON gadget released by Smarthome comes with up to seven inputs which allow you to detect and monitor external events including garage door contact closure or temperature sensors. The eight dry-contact relay outputs allow you to send out preprogrammed INSTEON group commands to any device connected to your INSTEON network including lights, speed controls for fans, alarm systems, motorized blinds, etc… The device is also downward-compatible with X10 in case you haven’t upgraded to a next generation home automation network.
The uses for this device in your home automation setup range from security to environment control to hearing impaired assistance.
The INSTEON-enabled EZIO8SA Input/Output Controller can be used to monitor and control low voltage devices such as contact closures, outdoor lights, appliance relays and alarm systems. The Controller allows virtually any device connected to its inputs to send INSTEON signals. Connect a garage door contact closure to the device and never enter a dark house again. The Controller will activate an INSTEON lighting scene to welcome you home whenever the garage door opens. In addition to lighting control, there are a myriad of conveniences the Controller can provide in your INSTEON network. Have a doorbell ring flash all the lights in your house so you won’t miss any important visitors or package deliveries or have a motion detector notify your security system of intruders. The possibilities are endless.
