EZIO2X4 is a dual function module that allows monitoring/sensing of external signals and direct control (switching) of devices. Four inputs (2 opto-isolated and 2 programmable as analog levels) can be used to interface items such as door closures, light sensors, temperature sensors, etc.

These inputs can send Insteon group commands upon changes in their levels or at preset alarms points in the case of the analog inputs. As an Insteon/X10 responder, EZIO2X4 functions as a dual relay switch rated .5A at 30VDC/120VAC. Control and monitor anything in your Insteon/X10 home automation network with EZIO2X4!

  • Simple and rapid installation
  • Four general purpose inputs (2 opto-isolated and 2 digital or analog level (0-5VDC, 10-bit resolution)
  • Acts as an Insteon sender with each of the 4 inputs able to trigger a group on/off command or broadcast message
  • A timer from 1 second to 255 minutes can be set on each input to delay the command sent in the ON to OFF transition
  • Configurable to send Insteon commands or broadcast messages at programmable thresholds (alarm points) on the analog inputs
  • Two general purpose relays (contacts rated .5A at 30VDC or 120VAC - resistive loads)
  • A timer from 1 second to 255 minutes can be set on each relay to allow momentary pulsing or unattended turn off
  • Responds to Insteon and X10 commands to turn on or off each or any combination of the 2 relays
  • Extensive command set for maximum programming flexibility
  • Supported by third-party software and a free set up utility from SimpleHomeNet
  • Acts as a repeater of powerline INSTEON signals
  • 2-way communications for high reliability
  • Pass-through outlet may be used for other appliances
  • 1-year warranty by SimpleHomeNet

Outputs EZIO2X4 EZIO8T EZIO8SA EZIO4O EZIO6I
Controls Each output can be linked to an Insteon group (i.e. respond to a switch or a button on a Keypadlinc, Controllinc, etc.)
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.)
X10 Compatibility Outputs respond to X10 On/Off commands
Timers Timers from 1 second to 255 minutes can be set up to turn off each output

Output Uses General purpose contact closures of small loads limited by relay voltage and current rating. Small AC loads such as sprinkler valves, HVAC relays, pool valves, door chimes, alarm horns, etc. General purpose contact closure of larger loads limited by relay voltage and current rating.

Inputs EZIO2X4 EZIO8T EZIO8SA EZIO4O EZIO6I
Controls Each input is ON when a contact closes or when current flows (on opto-isolated type) or OFF in the opposite condition. Changes from OFF to ON and from ON to OFF trigger Insteon Lights ON or lights OFF commands by default. On units with sensor inputs (Analog or 1-Wire), the programmable alarm points become the ON and OFF transitions.
Timers Delayed OFF commands (from 1 to 255 minutes) programmable on each input. This timer resets (starts over) if a new ON transition is detected.

Overview   
Applications
Your EZIO2X4 Interface unit puts control and monitoring at the point of need, thus avoiding wiring complications.  EZIO2X4 is really two devices in one.  Its four inputs can be used to monitor the state of items such as contact closures, alarm outputs, temperature sensors, light detectors, etc. to cause Insteon commands to be sent to linked responders such as lights, chimes, telephone dialers, etc., in your home automation network.  As an Insteon or X10 responder, the unit can be used to control (switch) loads such as large relays, furnace heaters, blowers, chimes, momentary pushbuttons, etc. via its two independent relays.

INSTEON and X10 compatibility means virtually unlimited connectivity, including wireless networks and the Internet.

EZIO2X4 is easy to install and operate, and has a built-in powerline interface.

Please refer to the quick-guide that comes with your EZIO2X4 for detailed installation instructions. This quick-guide is also available from the free downloads section.

Your EZIO2X4 may be used in conjunction with several third-party home automation programs such as mControl from Embedded Automation , HomeSeer from HomeSeer Technology or Indigo from Perceptive Automation. Support from additional manufacturers is underway.

Should one desire to run EZIO2X4 without a home automation package, a configuration and set-up utility can be downloaded from the free downloads area and used to put EZIO2X4 to work. This program runs under MS-Windows XP and allows you to use your EZSrve/EZBridge or Smarthome PLC to communicate with EZIO2X4 affording the following:

  • Verification of INSTEON EZIO2X4 communications
  • Quick EZIO2X4 diagnostics for confirmation of operation
  • Modification of the behavior of the inputs relative to the Insteon commands that are sent, the group number, the order of the commands, etc.
  • Set up of timers on the relays so they can turn off at a preset time after an On command is received
  • Set up of timers on the inputs so that the "On to Off" command is sent automatically after a preset time
  • Set up of timers, resident in the EZSrve/EZBridge or for actuating relays at specific times of the week. Once programmed, the EZSrve/EZBridge or PLC can run unattended without a PC
  • Set up of monitored events such as X10 or Insteon command received to trigger another Insteon device command (EZSrve/EZBridge only.)
