Insteon has announced the Insteon App, a comprehensive iOS app that lets you control a wide variety of HomeKit-compatible home automation gear.

Via Apple’s HomeKit, the app controls gear using the Insteon standard as well as competing standards such as ZigBee and Z-Wave. The app is one of the first complete HomeKit apps to be shown to the public.

The app can control lights, door locks, color-changing bulbs, garage door openers, thermostats, and much more. Insteon also unveiled the Insteon Hub, a small $150 box that connects Insteon home automation gear to Apple’s HomeKit system. The Hub supports advanced features such rooms, zones, scenes, and schedules. Insteon’s proprietary home connectivity standard uses both wireless and power-line communication for improved reliability.

Insteon makes its own line of home automation gear, and several other manufacturers support Insteon technology as well. Details on the availability and pricing of the Insteon App are not yet available.
