Learn more about Insteon on Wikipedia . Insteon is a product and protocol comparable to X10 but developed with several features that make its protocol more reliable such as adding feedback for Insteon commands and signal redundancy cross both RF wireless and powerline.

INSTEON products on the power line can be manufactured to be X10-compatible. Homeowners with existing X10 networks can migrate to an INSTEON network without having to discard all their existing X10 devices. INSTEON devices repeat INSTEON signals, but not X10 signals.
Although both can be sent over the same power line, INSTEON commands are not similar to or compatible with X10, and X10 commands are not INSTEON. Rather, INSTEON driver chip sets simply include the capability of transmitting, receiving, and responding to X10 power line messages in addition to INSTEON messages. X10 compatibility is implemented in the INSTEON-compatible chip sets made by SmartLabs.
Insteon RF Device Compatibility
INSTEON products either communicate over the home's electrical wiring or through radio frequency or both. This transceiver kit transmits over the home's electrical wiring, not RF. To use it with a RF-based device such as a Insteon Thermostat requires either a Dual Band Appliance Module or a Access Point which received the signal through the home wiring or RF and retransmitted out over both technologies.
