Open-source Insteon home automation module running on Python 3.

Project description

This is a Python package to interface with an Insteon Modem. It has been tested to work with most USB or RS-232 serial based devices such as the 2413U, 2412S, 2448A7 and Hub models 2242 and 2245. Other models have not been tested but the underlying protocol has not changed much over time so it would not be surprising if it worked with a number of other models. If you find success with something, please let us know.

This pyinsteon package was created primarily to support an INSTEON platform for the Home Assistant automation platform but it is structured to be general-purpose and should be usable for other applications as well.


  • Python 3.8, 3.9, 3.10 or 3.11

  • Posix or Windows based system

  • Some form of Insteon PLM or Hub

  • At least one Insteon device


You can, of course, just install the most recent release of this package using pip. This will download the more recent version from PyPI and install it to your host.

pip install pyinsteon

If you want to grab the the development code, you can also clone this git repository and install from local sources:
