Finally Insteon is coming to Europe!


Almost four years ago it was announced plans to bring Insteon devices to Europe. But only now those plans become a reality. Joe Dada, SmartLabs / Smarthome owner, confirmed the European spec Insteon units are already in use on trials and they will ship in 2012! Both types will be available – powerline and RF. Very good news for all X10 owners because Insteon is compatible with that old home automation technology and can be used together with X10 devices.

Currently the most interesting question is about the price of European Insteon devices. Will it bit Z-Wave we see very soon I hope.

INSTEON for Europe


According to SmartLabs, Inc., founder and CEO Joe Dada INSTEON devices will be available in the UK and European market:

We will be entering the UK/Euro market with INSTEON either directly, or with one or more partners. Any input that we could get from your readers as to customer preferences (e.g. which products are most desireable) would be greatly helpful.

It’s very good news. Especially after Dan developed his GSD LinuxMCE interface for EZBridge and PLM.
