Essential Info

Control any light in your home from two different switches. By installing the UPB Slave Base, you can turn a UPB Transceiver-Controller Base (sold separately) into a true three-way unit to control it remotely from another room in your home. This SimplyBrilliant™ auxiliary switch can control and dim a lighting load up to 1000 watts using Universal Powerline Bus technology. UPB technology uses your existing wiring, so you don't need to run wires in order to take advantage of its properties. Best of all, all faceplates are sold separately and 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; the UPB Slave Base works exclusively with single or dual-tall faceplates (sold separately). A Decora-style wall plate is sold separately.

  • More Info

    The UPB Slave Base 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. The UPB Slave 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.

    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. If you're just getting started with automating your lights and appliances.
