Hey guys just about to pull the trigger on home automation but I'm just wondering.. do I need to purchase the Insteon hub as well as CastleOS to have this control my house?

Or does the Castle PC do it all?

Can't wait to start converting my house!!

You need some sort of INSTEON interface, of which the Insteon hub is one. But we recommend the INSTEON USB PLM (2413U) which is purpose built to interface other hubs to the INSTEON network. It will convert the commands to INSTEON RF and power line signals.
