Design 8.7

The design is sleek and intuitive. The Insteon Hub acts and looks like a router from the future for all Insteon compatible applications, as well as the new collection of HomeKit compatible products. The Hub can connect to WiFi and your mobile phone to control everything from scenes to individual lights in your tech-abode.
