The Insteon camp is growing. SmartLabs just announced the IRLinc, a plug-in interface that enables control of Insteon-compatible lighting and other appliances using almost any universal remote.

That’s a nice perk. As much as we all love new toys, some are very addicted to their existing remotes. It’s comparable to the groove in the couch—it takes time to achieve that kind of magic!

Hide the sensor in your A/V gear and use your remote to zap Insteon signals via your home’s existing electrical wires. The IRLinc can control over 400 different compatible devices.

SmartLabs currently manufacturers over 170 Insteon-compatible products. The IRLinc is available for pre-order from Smarthome for $99.99.
