Insteon smart-home products enter Microsoft stores

Irvine, California-based Insteon says its home automation and control technology products are now available in Microsoft retail stores.

The company’s connected-home devices are also available through MicrosoftStore.com and at such stores as Best Buy, The Home Depot, Walmart, Sears and Menards, among others. 

Microsoft stores will offer three unique Insteaon kits -- a Starter Kit, Home Kit and Business Kit -- and five stand-alone devices, including the Insteon Leak Sensor, Open/Close Sensor, LED Bulb, On/Off Module and Wireless Wi-Fi Camera.

Prices will range from $29.99 to $79.99, with kits starting at $199. Microsoft employees will also be trained to help assist customers with questions regarding setup.

“Since launching INSTEON on MicrosoftStore.com, we have seen a lot of interest from Microsoft customers in our connected products,” said Joe Dada, CEO, Insteon. “Now that we are making those same products available to Microsoft retail customers, we are confident that our products will be equally as popular in stores.”
