To All Insight Customers:
As of February 2013 we have received multiple requests from our customers to verify the compatibility of Insight Phones 2.0 with their alarm systems. We have been working successfully with Insight Phones 2.0 since 2007. Because of many recent inquiries we have spoken with Insight Technical Support. We have been informed that they have made no changes, nor do they plan to make any changes.  In the future Insight will be margining with Time Warner. At that point we are unaware of what will happen with this process, and cannot guarantee what will happen with phone and alarm compatibility in the future.
