8-Relay/7-Input INSTEON/X10 I/O Controller With PLM


EZIO8SA/PLM Combo – Model # 3011B

Ships with Powerline-Only PLM. For a totally wireless I/O controller (no PLM needed) see our new IoT8-Z

You can trigger small devices, alarms, and events using incoming signals from sensors by setting up a centralized EZIO8SA Combo.  It allows up to 7 incoming signals, which can trigger both the 8 wired outputs and a host of linked INSTEON devices through its PLM.  You can eliminate complicated wiring problems and create a responsive home control system.

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
  • Open/Close your garage door or other entry access equipped with automated openers


  • Four opto-isolated digital inputs (3-30VDC)
  • Two inputs configurable as digital (0-1VDC for ON, 2-3VDC for OFF) or analog (10 bit resolution, 0-1023 points)
  • Dallas Semiconductor 1-Wire bus with support for 1 DS18B20 temperature sensor
  • Eight general purpose, Form-C relays (rated at 3A, 120VAC/24VDC)
  • Includes required PLM (powerline only)
  • Device can act as an Insteon sender with each of the inputs able to trigger a unique group on/off command
  • Responds to Insteon (direct or group) and X10 commands to turn on or off each of the 8 outputs
  • Extensive command set for maximum programming flexibility
  • Acts as a repeater of Insteon signals
  • 1 year Smartenit warranty


EZIO8SA is a centralized input and output controller, managing incoming signals from up to 7 motion sensors, window/ door sensors and more while providing wired control over 8 small devices itself in addition to its ability to send out Insteon commands through the PLM.  This puts your input/ output control at the point of need, eliminating wiring nightmares.  You can now use simple sensors like magnetic door contacts to trigger multiple home automation devices at once or use your wireless keypads and remotes to control small electrical loads.

Triggering any of EZIO8SA’s inputs sends out an Insteon group command, capable of controlling a number of home elements at the same time.  These inputs can be wired to things like magnetic contacts, motion sensors etc. and can also be linked to Insteon controllers.  So you can broadcast the same Insteon group command via a connected contact closure or a remote Insteon signal.  EZIO8SA’s outputs can be wired to small 3A at 120VAC devices and loads.  These outputs may be linked to Insteon commands, allowing you to control non-Insteon devices via Insteon commands.  So EZIO8SA is extremely versatile, allowing you a number of choices for triggering and controlling various devices.

What’s Included:

  • EZIComm –  Insteon PLM (power line only!)
  • 12V Power Supply
  • 3 ft. CAT5 Patch Cable

Outputs EZIO2X4 IoT8-Z IoT4R
Controls Each output can be linked to an Insteon group to be controlled by an Insteon scene controller (Ex. Keypadlinc, Switchlinc, etc.)
Supported Protocols Insteon & X10 ZigBee & Insteon Insteon, X10 and WiFi
INSTEON ‘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.)
Timers Timers from 1 second to 255 minutes can be set up to turn off each output (Insteon mode only)
# of Outputs 2 8 4
Types Relays (normally open) Relays (both normally open and normally closed provided) Relays (both normally open and normally closed provided)
Ratings 30VDC/120VAC, 0.5A 24VDC/120VAC, 3A 30VDC/120VAC, 0.5A
Output Uses General purpose contact closures of small loads limited by relay voltage and current rating. General purpose contact closure of larger loads limited by relay voltage and current rating. General purpose contact closures of small loads limited by relay voltage and current rating.
Inputs EZIO2X4 IoT8-Z IoT4R
Controls For the digital (opto isolated) inputs, each input is ON when when current flows through the input or OFF when current is absent. Changes from OFF to ON and from ON to OFF can be used to control other ZigBee or Insteon devices. For analog inputs, voltage levels translate to points and On/Off transitions can be regulated by programmable trip points thresholds.
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.
# of Inputs 4 6 None
Inputs Type 2 Opto-isolated (3-30VDC), 2 digital or analog (0-5VDC) 4 Opto-isolated (3-30VDC), 2 digital or analog (0-2.4VDC) N/A
