Essential Info

If you've considered installing a Universal Powerline Bus (UPB) network in your home but have resisted because you aren't sure which style switches and dimmers you want in each room, the ideal solution has arrived. The SimplyBrilliant™ UPB Transceiver-Controller Base provides remote control of new and existing lighting fixtures, lamps, fans and other electrical devices using your existing wiring to control virtually any light in your home. Best of all, all faceplates are sold separately and are interchangeable in the field without ever having to untwist a wire nut, so once this base is installed, you'll easily be able to install or change out any faceplate in seconds with a double, triple, or quad rocker or even a four- or eight-button faceplate (sold separately). A Decora-style wall plate is sold separately.


What's Included

  • Transceiver
  • Mounting hardware
  • Instructions
  • More Info

    The UPB Transceiver-Controller Base controls a load of up to 900 watts and is capable of communicating with UPB plug-in modules, switches, and/or other UPB devices (sold separately) to control virtually anything that can be connected to existing wiring anywhere in the home. Regardless of your chosen faceplate, the UPB Transceiver-Controller Base offers 200 dimming steps as well as a resume dim feature for attractive lighting ambience as well as the flexibility you deserve. It is not recommended that this switch be used with non-dimmable lighting or with appliances.

    UPB technology delivers exceptional reliability and noise immunity at a much lower installed cost when compared to hardwired and RF solutions, and you'll experience no interference from adjacent homes. UPB technology is not X10 compatible.

    Add a companion base for inexpensive three-way control. This dedicated remote transceiver is sold separately. With the free, downloadable UpStart software and a UPB Interface Module (sold separately), you can use your computer to configure and/or control UPB devices.
