How Harmony integrates with Insteon

All Harmony hub‑based products

Harmony connects with the Insteon servers, allowing you to incorporate Insteon into your Harmony Activities. Please ensure your Insteon Hub is connected to the same Wi‑Fi network as your Harmony hub.

Harmony remotes without Harmony Hub

As Harmony and the Insteon communicate over your home Wi‑Fi network, Harmony products that do not come with a Wi‑Fi enabled Harmony Hub cannot integrate with Insteon.
