IRVINE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
creators of the world's best-selling home automation and control
technology, today announced that its connected home devices are now
available in Microsoft retail stores. Previously, INSTEON announced its

In its continuing commitment to provide choice, value and service for
its customers, Microsoft (News - Alert) stores will offer three unique INSTEON kits --
a Starter Kit, Home Kit and Business Kit -- and five standalone devices,

"Since launching INSTEON on MicrosoftStore.com, we have seen a lot of
interest from Microsoft customers in our connected products," said Joe
Dada, CEO, INSTEON. "Now that we are making those same products
available to Microsoft retail customers, we are confident that our
products will be equally as popular in stores."
The INSTEON family of devices turns any home into a connected home.
INSTEO users are able to set up lighting scenes, schedule lights to
automatically turn on and off, and monitor their homes via wireless
cameras from any mobile device. INSTEON kits and modules allow users to
receive instant notification alerts when doors and windows are opened or
closed, or when there is a water leak in the home. INSTEON provides all
of this and more via a free app with no monthly fees.
INSTEON's reliable dual-band technology uses both the existing wires
(power line) in the home and radio-frequency (RF) communication instead
of relying on spotty Wi-Fi connections and routers, which dictate where
smart devices must be placed to work properly. By making every networked
device talk to each other via RF and the power line, INSTEON eliminates
the need for custom wiring and ensures that every device is always
connected. Adding remote control and automation to everything from home
monitoring to lighting, INSTEON's dual-band network and devices allow
users to manage the home or office in more variations than any other
home automation technology.
