Essential Info

Take remote appliance control to new levels with ApplianceLinc, a revolutionary new appliance module that introduces entirely new features to the world of appliance automation. The ApplianceLinc not only does everything traditional X10 appliance modules do — including remote on/off control of any appliance or lamp that you don't want dimmed — it adds powerful new features, such as a pass-through outlet, a status LED that indicates powerline activity, and more!


What's Included

  • ApplianceLinc PLC appliance module (3-pin)
  • ApplianceLinc owner's manual
  • More Info

    All the same features as the ApplianceLinc 2-Way without scene capability and status confirmation.

    Pass-Through Outlet
    In addition to the X10-controlled outlet, ApplianceLinc offers a non X10-controlled outlet on the face. Now you won't have to unplug your appliance modules just to find a place to plug-in the vacuum cleaner.

    Durable Construction
    The ApplianceLinc address is set electronically, rather than using old-fashioned address wheels, which are less sturdy and can be too small to easily adjust. Don't worry about losing the address when the power is lost. All settings are stored in non-volatile memory, which means everything will be retained during a power outage. In fact, ApplianceLinc is so smart it will automatically return the load to the same status it was at when the power was lost. So, if the ApplianceLinc was controlling a table fan when the power went off, it will come back on when the power is restored.

    Status LED

    Quieter Than Standard Appliance Modules
    One of the problems with standard appliance modules is the loud click that's associated with them. But the ApplianceLinc has been measured to be more than 80% quieter than standard models.

    Selectable Local Control
    ApplianceLinc modules offer a local control function, or the ability to turn lamps or appliances directly at the appliance, without the need for an X10 transmitter.

    Local control features can be successfully used with most loads, including heaters, incandescent lamps and many others. Note: Fluorescent lights, devices with motors and other devices may result in false triggering when an OFF command is sent to the module and it turns back on a few seconds later. For these loads, it's recommended that the load detect feature be turned off.

    Two- or Three-Pin Versions to Choose From
    All ApplianceLinc appliance modules are available in standard two-prong versions and three-prong versions with a ground pin. Choose the one that matches the outlet you plan on plugging it into (Note: two-prong appliances can also be plugged into three-prong ApplianceLincs).

    2-Year Warranty
    Smarthome stands behind the entire ApplianceLinc line of products with a full 2-year warranty. Increase your warranty from 2 years to 7 for a nominal fee. Check the box above.

    Safety Tested and Factory Certification

    All ApplianceLinc appliance modules are safety approved. The assembly line for Smarthome Design Products is ISO9002 certified. In order to meet the ISO 9002 standards, the entire factory underwent rigorous inspections of procedures and policies before being thoroughly audited. The certification received was based on its dedication to high quality management systems and strict adherence of quality systems and guidelines.

    PAUL -- henderson, NV   10/16/2008
    provides a bit more dependability than the x-10 compeonent it replaced
    LARY -- helena, MT   10/5/2008
    Works well
    JOE -- framingham, MA   7/28/2008
    Works with CFL's as stated.
    STANLEY -- rochester, NY   7/25/2008
    Unit functioned as advertised, but occasionally did not receive X10 commands reliably.
    TIMOTHY J -- lewis center, OH   6/6/2008
    Unfortunately these modules and other smarthome modules seem to be real sensitive to minor power fluctuations. I had hoped they had fixed this issue that I had seen with some of the older x-10 only based modules. Minor power fluctuations that you may get during storms or other events can make them lose settings and/or lock up. Other than that, they work pretty well.
    TIMOTHY -- the woodlands, TX   5/23/2008
    I didn't understand from the description that it was not Insteon--only X10. My bad?
    JOSH -- san francisco, CA   5/16/2008
    Works exactly as advertised. First one I ordered died after about a week of use. Smarthome sent me another one right away, and I haven't had any other problems with it.
    DON -- corpus christi, TX   5/3/2008
    Huge improvement over the original X10 version! Very little "click" noise from the relay, easy to program, and the built-in LED is a plus, too.
    CLIFFORD -- sunland, CA   4/6/2008
    Pass through outlet and function light are great additions to this problem-free unit
    LAURA -- winter park, FL   3/28/2008
    I was sold the wrong thing by your customer service person. I had to return it and lost m shipping cost.
    STANLEY -- rochester, NY   3/14/2008
    Works very well. Elimination of the House and Unit Code wheels is a "plus". Had difficulty setting the address until I realized that it must be sent within 30 seconds after plugging in the unit. Please continue to support X-10 devices.
    JOE -- fremont, CA   1/17/2008
    Outstanding, works perfectly. Much quieter than previous versions.
    STEVE -- thousand oaks, CA   12/28/2007
    Nice super quiet relay.
    DON -- issaquah, WA   12/27/2007
    sensitivity was such that works in location X-10 didn't
    JEFFREY -- kennett square, PA   12/13/2007
    Works great, and operates very quietly!
    MATTHEW DEL -- riverview, FL   12/13/2007
    Thank you for very good service. I will shop your store again realy soon.
    SCOTT -- san jose, CA   11/19/2007
    They work well .... they just don't work well for a long time.
    AUBREY -- peoria, AZ   11/1/2007
    Does exactly what I expected.
    MIKE -- new york, NY   9/17/2007
    very satisfied with this unit
    GARY -- pflugerville, TX   9/5/2007
    This needs to be advertised as an X-10 based device. I wouldn't have bought it if I had known this.
