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.

MiCasa - Native iPhone App for Use with SmartLinc Now Available
Using SmartLinc Central Controller, MiCasa allows for remote control of all switches, outlets and dimmers on your INSTEON network. Control dimming and On/Off device operation using your iPhone or iPod touch (currently does not support advanced control with thermostats, I/O controllers, sprinkler controllers, scenes, or timers).
Note: MiCasa does not currently support the more advanced INSTEON devices such as Thermostats, I/O controllers, sprinkler controllers, scenes or timers. Future releases may add functionality for these devices.
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.
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. This amazing feature has been tested with several Panasonic IP Cameras, sold separately, and consider it to be a valuable tool that integrates your home automation and security into one.
iPhone and iPod touch Control
If you already have an iPhone or iPod touch and a Wi-Fi router, SmartLinc is all you need to start controlling all of your INSTEON devices. Smarthome engineers created an interface that has been optimized to take full advantage of the power within the iPhone and iPod touch. Quality graphics and quick response make these products ideal as an INSTEON remote control touch screen.
Don't Block your Outlets
SmartLinc - INSTEON Central Controller includes Smarthome's innovative pass-through AC outlet on the front of the unit. 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."
Non-Volatile Memory & Battery Backup
SmartLinc has internal intelligence to control your home without a computer running a full-time automation program. You'll be able to set up schedules directly on your PC, yet the settings are stored on the plug-in module, so you won't have to keep your PC running to activate timed functions. SmartLinc - INSTEON Central Controller has 32KB of downloadable EEPROM memory that won't be erased if the power fails. An on-board clock keeps accurate time, all the time, with integrated 10-year battery backup.
