Relay Ratings 30VDC/120VAC, 0.5A 30VDC/120VAC, 0.5A 24VDC/120VAC, 3A
Output Uses General purpose contact closures (on/off control) of electrical loads limited by relay voltage and current ratings.
Output Timers Timers from 1 second to 255 minutes can be set up to automatically turn off an output upon receipt of an “On” command
Controls On and Off remote commands
INSTEON Control Each output can be linked to an Insteon group to be controlled by an Insteon scene controller (Ex. Keypadlinc, Switchlinc, etc.)

“All-Link”: A snapshot of the outputs can be recalled with a single group command (i.e. respond to a switch or a button on a Keypadlinc, ControlLinc, etc.)

Inputs 4 None 7 6
Input Type 2 Opto-isolated (3-30VDC), 2 digital or analog (0-5VDC) N/A 4 Opto-isolated (3-30VDC), 2 digital or analog (0-3VDC)
Input Uses Contact closures, Digital and Analog DC Voltage sources. Isolated outputs. N/A Contact closures, Digital and Analog DC Voltage sources. Isolated outputs.
Input Detection OFF to ON and ON to OFF transitions can be detected on digital inputs given the presence or absence of input voltage, or on analog inputs when a given voltage level is detected. For analog inputs, the voltage levels can also be read.
Input Timers Delayed OFF commands (from 1 to 255 minutes) programmable on each input. This timer resets (starts over) if a new ON command is received.

    IoT8-Z - Model # 3012A Multi-protocol Input Output Controller

    Controls electrical loads (lighting, irrigation valves, garage door openers, HVAC dampers, alarms, etc.) through 8 separate 3-Amp Form-C relays, and connects to all types of wired sensors through 4 digital and 2 analog inputs. Enables many applications such as:
    • Irrigation and outdoor landscape lighting for the perfect smart yard
    • Automated pool water circulation pumps and lighting
    • Automated water system in a rural residence (well pump, reservoir tank, booster pump)
    • Control of "non-smart" devices through home automation apps, voice assistants, keypads or switches
    • Remote management and monitoring of a 2-car garage.
  • Smartenit EZIO8SA I/O Controller

    EZIO8SA - Model # 3011A Requires Insteon Serial Interface PLM

    For wireless multi-protocol and enhanced operation see our IoT8-Z Controls (switches on/off) up to 8 electrical loads (lighting, irrigation, garage door openers, HVAC dampers, alarms, etc.) through 3-Amp Form-C relays. Includes 4 digital and 2 analog inputs to monitor external signals from switch closures, analog sensors, digital sensors, motion detectors, liquid sensors, etc. This variety of inputs and outputs enable many applications such as:
    • Trigger lamps and overhead lights in response to detected motion
    • Use INSTEON keypads or switches to control multiple non-INSTEON devices
    • Remotely manage and monitor a 2-car garage
  • EZIO2X4 - Model # 5010D

    Monitor and control small devices, alarms, and events using incoming signals from sensors by setting up a centralized EZIO2x4.  It can be wired to 4 incoming signals and can trigger its 2 wired outputs and a host of linked Insteon devices.  You can eliminate complicated wiring problems and create a responsive home control system that is accessible from your phone, tablet, and web browser.

    Smart Possibilities

    • Trigger lamps and overhead lights in response to detected motion
    • Use Insteon keypads or switches to control multiple non-Insteon devices
    • Sound an alert or chime when your garage door is opened
    Product appearance may be different than what is shown.
  • IoT4R - Model # 5010V
