The Universal Devices ISY994i: An Intelligent Home Automation Controller
The ISY (Intelligent System) isn’t just another command/control hub. The ISY994i is a fully independent, stand-alone home automation device. Its built-in event-based logic system, secure web server, and real-time clock keep the ISY and your configurations safe from internet outages. The Universal Devices experience comes with a large variety of tutorials, top-rated customer support, and a helpful, thriving online community to help you automate your home easily and quickly.
The ISY994i is designed for use with your INSTEON and X10 devices.
Automate with Amazon Alexa Devices
The ISY994i works with the Amazon Echo and Amazon Echo Dot. Through ISY’s connection with Amazon Alexa, you can turn your devices and applications on or off, as well as dim or brighten them. The same Alexa connection can also change your thermostat and start/stop your custom ISY programs.
What You Can Do With the ISY - Alexa Connection
- Turn room lights on or off
- Brighten or dim room lights
- Set, increase, or decrease your thermostat's temperature
- Ask if the front door is locked or unlocked
- Lock the door
- Adjust devices and settings by variables: i.e. "turn X to Y percent"
Create a Smart Home From Your Smartphone
With the MobiLinc apps (for iPhone users: MobiLinc Pro, MobiLinc HD, and more; for Android users: MobiLinc Pro), you can fully automate your home's ISY devices right from your smartphone, no matter where you are. The MobiLinc apps have simple, streamlined interfaces, making adjusting settings to your preferences easy.
Some of the many possible MobiLinc settings and capabilities: turn on the lights in your rooms, open your garage door, check the footage of your security cameras, and create notification settings based on if a sound breaks your chosen audio level or if connection between a camera is lost.
The iPhone MobiLinc apps are compatible with all iOS 11+ iPads and iPhones (including iPhone Plus models), and MobiLinc Pro supports all Androids 2.3 and above.
What’s Compatible with the ISY994i?
The ISY994i can be programmed to make your life more convenient in a spectrum of home automating ways utilizing INSTEON and X10 devices. Additionally, optional modules, such as ISY Portal, allows you to integrate with such services as Amazon Alexa, Amazon Echo, Google Home, and IFTTT (additional fees apply). Own a Google Home? You can use the Google Home for room lighting adjustments to tell you if a certain device is on or off. An IFTT Maker Channel connection can also be established, allowing you to send it events based on your desired conditions and have it act upon events like doorbells, cameras, and geo-fencing.
An All-Purpose System
The ISY944i has seemingly endless programming possibilities: you can do everything from adjusting your thermostat and opening your garage door to changing the settings of your pool pump/irrigation system based on tomorrow’s weather. You can manage and control your devices with it, too, since it has a built-in web server, an Administrative Console, and plenty of compatible third-party apps. Check the status of your devices, create schedule-based events, send out texts or emails, and create your own variables with the ISY944i.
ISY994i Support and Capacities
The ISY994i is INSTEON and X10 compatible. You will need to have the 2413S PLM for INSTEON and X10 usage, since it is not included with the ISY994i. It has a maximum capacity of 255 nodes (devices, buttons, scenes, or folders) and 300 programs. Through the optional (fee based) ISY Portal Module, ISY seamlessly integrates with Amazon Echo and Google Home.

I will say this is probably not a device for someone looking for a simple plug & play solution. You need to be somewhat tech savvy and comfortable with configuring network equipment. You DO need to READ THE DOCUMENTATION to make it go. But if you want a great control system with extensive programming capability... The ISY 994i will not disappoint you.
So, that being said, this device IS NOT for someone that wants to just plug in, hit some kind of LEARN button and be up and running. Go get one of the silly 'hub' devices for that. There is something for everyone on the market now.
I wanted something that I could install, connect to Z-wave and Insteon light switches, outlets, motion sensors and such, that was highly reliable. But I also wanted something that would grow with my needs and abilities. How many times do you install something and then wish it was capable of doing more a few months down the road? But too late, you are committed. You won't feel that way with this device, if you are like me. Now, I am no programmer. I am an electronics technician, by trade and I found it pretty easy, with a little patience, and reading the online instructions to hook up almost 60 devices in my house from water leak sensors, to wall outlets to light switches, to motion sensors, and gate and garage door opener controllers to name only a few. I am integrating it into my already wired security sensors now. Wireless sensors would be done by now, but I want to use the wired sensors in my house from my old ADT box.
This is not plug and play like some of the other hubs, but it is still pretty simple, following the step by step instructions. You should go online and watch a couple of the youtube videos about the programs you create and read some of the wiki pages for the Universal Devices controller to see what I mean. When I install a device, I simply tell the ISY controller to 'find it' in the house (radio waves) by using the administrator (control) panel on windows. So, you install the administrator control panel software (easy) and it will talk to your controller and you can do a million things from there. You hit a button, it finds your device, you give the device a name, save it, and then fill in some blanks in the program to tell it what to do and when. For example - I have some table lamps plugged into an Insteon dimmer outlet. I filled in the blank fields in the program to tell it IF it is sunset, (it knows by the time of day) THEN turn on the "Table Lamps" @ 45% and THEN turn them off 4 hours later. Done. I can do a lot with simple programs like that. And the instructions online and videos give you plenty of samples to work from and modify to your particular situation.
I recall a review I read here before I bought this where someone said "Why didn't I buy this one in the first place?" or something to that effect. I was so glad when I read that review. He had a 'hub' of some kind and was stuck not being able to do what he wanted. So, I bought the PRO ISY controller with the max devices capable, 1000. And with Z-Wave installed and IR. I never use IR, the box is in another room with the computers and router and such, so, I would not get that option again. But Z-wave definitely, of course. Read about Z-Wave, and you will understand.
Go online, do some research, don't buy impulsively, it took me weeks or more. But ultimately, this device will have the capability and the support you need. It is pricey, I was a little put off for that price for a microcontroller, and I MAKE microcontrollers. But you are paying for the programming and support. These guys did a great job on this device and they stand behind it....all day and night long. This is a very, very stable device. it boots right up, everytime. It has never locked up on me in the two years I have been using it. I would not hesitate to buy it again. Get the PRO version with the better security and the most devices, you will be glad you did. It is bullet proof. Then.....write your review. Don't wait 2 years like I did.
The product is still top-notch, but limited to 256 Devices/Scenes and only 300 Programs unless you pay the additional USD30 for the PRO upgrade.
First caveat, you will need to acquire an Insteon 2413S PowerLinc Modem for this to interface with.
Second caveat, it will require Java to be installed on your PC.
Third caveat, fewer and fewer internet browsers allow Java to be used as a plugin... Awkward!
Once you get rolling, it is quirky, but usable. The device has a built-in web server that allows you to use a (Java enabled) browser to interface with the device. In my case, the initialization application was unable to find the IP address of the device making it harder to start up. Once found, the application was uneven, sometimes working fine, other times not at all. This could well be Windows 10 issues, but I have no way of knowing that.
The web interface is not capable of initial home setup. You need to fire up a Java applet to get that job done. The web interface has a button to fire up that app. Again, the interface is uneven and quirky... however you eventually get used to it. Once you are at this state, the setup is reliable and relatively seamless as it interfaces with the devices. In my case I have 60+ devices plus six 8-key pads, one X10 motion detector, and four Insteon motion/dawn-dusk/battery sensors. Very, very complex interrelationships are supported; and are nicely and flawlessly handled once you understand their paradigm.
I may document a bit more in the future, but for now, the bottom line is that once you get things up and running, it is very easy to make complex changes with a drag-n-drop interface. I'm quite pleased with the results.
I dropped a star because of the quirky interface.
