Insteon

A family of X10-compatible lighting and home control products from SmartLabs Inc. (www.insteon.net) that use both RF and powerline to transmit signals. All Insteon devices are repeaters of Insteon signals, which means the more devices installed in the home, the stronger the wireless network. Insteon devices accept and receive signals from X10 devices, but do not repeat them. See home control network.
