Rated 2 out of5 by fromSurprise! App doesn't work with new Win10 MobilI was surprised when I found that the mobile software needed to control the device from your phone has not been updated to work with Win10. Really? And Microsoft is selling their product on their store? #confused

Rated 2 out of5 by fromdifficult set upThe app for the windows phone is not working yet. I am planning to wait for the windows 10 release before I give up. I can use the use this correctly, you have to open a port in the firewall for the hub. This is a difficult thing to do and still not working right for me. I had to call support to get the camera working and they did a lot of special kinds of things to get it set up.I really like the idea of a security system that does not require a monthy contract, so I am continuing to try to get this to work. I am wainting for a replacement motion sensor since mine did not work. I have small hope that the sensor is the problem. The company, SmartHome is not working very hard on the windows apps. They report that they know of the kinds of errors I am seeing and have no schedule for when they will be resolved. But they say they are working on it and I am holding out hope.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromGreat PotentialThis is a product with great potential. The integration with other Insteon products is seamless and very customizable. I have bought a similar kit along with some Switchlincs and KeypadLincs. They work very well together. The only downfall is the integration with the windows phone app. The app is much more developed on other OS's. There are more options with other apps (assign devices as receiver or controller, etc.) and the interface looks much better. However, voice commands with Cortana is much better in Windows phone 8.1 than any Siri or any other OS assistant.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromDoesn't work with Windows PhoneI purchased this item because it has the "Compatible With Windows Phone" logo on the box. I downloaded the phone app but couldn't get the wireless camera to work with the app, although I could get it to work on my PC in a web browser. When I called for tech support, I was informed that the camera does not work with the Windows Phone app despite what the box states. Very disappointed so I returned this to the Microsoft Store where I bought it.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromGreat Product!!I purchased the starter kit and loved it so much I went on Amazon and purchased several of their other devices. I love the fanlinc and the wall switches. You can really build out an amazing Home Automation System. There are quite a few devices to chose from. I can't wait for new features with the apps, like Cortana support.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromEasy, Flexible, and Powerful!Looked for a replacement for my Logitech Alert cameras (which didn't have a Windows/Windows Phone app...and now those cameras are discontinued), and saw these come available. What a great deal! Not only are the cameras cheaper, but more features are available through their web interface (you can have it email you six photos for each 'alert' of motion, etc.). The "hub" connects all your Insteon devices together so you can use their very well made Modern Windows and Windows Phone apps. Even though a "live tile" is sadly a missing feature (and for the Modern Windows app, there is no snap mode), the app it's only version 1.0 and does everything I need especially when away from home. Tilting your phone to the side makes camera images full screen, and you can also see when motion sensors are triggered. Overall, Insteon is a great value and plenty of "add ons" to create your dream home automation and monitoring system. I bought this 'starter kit' from the Microsoft Store and had everything I needed to get started. Got an extra camera to build out my system. Even though getting an Insteon "hub" makes things very easy to set up, if you want to do anything more advanced it can be more complex than it should be. Thankfully, Insteon provides free tech support to help you out.
