Essential Info

Take Your SwitchLincs to the Next Level with Custom-Etched Paddles
Custom etching allows you to personalize your switches for whichever application you choose and makes it easy to identify quickly what each switch controls. It's perfect for guests in your home: now they can easily identify which switch controls which light(s) - no more guessing. It is also very useful for multi-gang switch locations: Custom-Etched SwitchLinc Paddles will match custom-etched KeypadLincs so the switches will complement each other when placed side by side.

This paddle works as a replacement to the following switches:
INSTEON SwitchLinc Dimmer
INSTEON SwitchLinc 1000W Dimmer (High Wattage)
INSTEON SwitchLinc Remote Control Dimmer (Dual-Band)
SwitchLinc Stand-Alone Dimmer (Non-Communicating)
INSTEON SwitchLinc Relay (Non-Dimming)
INSTEON SwitchLinc Relay Countdown Timer, White

Word of advice from Smarthome Forum (Topic 1658):
"The V2 paddles do fit on the ICON switches/dimmers, but remember you'll have the extra 8 holes on the paddle."

    Personalizing Laser-Etched SwitchLinc Paddles
    Please follow these instructions to order your custom SwitchLinc paddle:

    1. After submitting your order, follow the link at the top of the "thank you" page to go to the Customization Form.

    2. After completing this form, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with your customization order details for your records.

    3. Your custom paddle will be created and will arrive via United States Postal Service within 7 to 10 business days.

    4. Please note: Due to the nature of the customization of each product, all sales are final. Returns will only be accepted due to an error on the part of Smarthome.

    Customization Process Explained: Laser etching your custom labels onto the custom SwitchLinc paddle requires a careful, detailed process to ensure your satisfaction. The paddle is secured on a template and placed into our laser etcher. Your designated text is copied directly from the invoice and inputted manually into the computer, and the laser then etches your paddle with your selected text. The template is removed from the laser etcher, and the paddle is prepped, painted, and set to dry. The paddle is polished to a high shine after any excess paint is removed. All custom SwitchLinc paddles go through a careful quality-control process before the paddles are packaged and shipped to your home.

    When placing your order, please note:

  • Your custom names can be displayed in the following way:
    1. Etched on Top of Paddle
    2. Etched on Middle of Paddle
    3. Etched on Bottom of Paddle
    4. Etched on Top, Middle and Bottom of Paddle
    ...or any combination you choose

    Click on the image below to see examples of your etching options:

  • Etching space is limited to 12 characters per line, with a maximum of 2 lines per paddle section
  • Custom-etched Paddles are available in white, ivory, almond, light almond, gray, black, and brown
  • For best results, use all capital letters

    Each paddle is laser-etched with your detailed room description. Smarthome is unable to accept returns on special-order items. For more information, please see our return policy.

    BRADFORD -- everett, MA   10/29/2013
    So cool, very practical for the 3+ gang switch plates where I never remember what switch controls what.
    MITCHELL -- santa ana, CA   9/27/2012
    It's a great idea and worked out very well. An option for a larger font might be worthwhile. I could see where it would be useful.
    Jesse -- kc, KS   3/6/2012
    Only three things I would change on this: 1. Option for larger font 2. LED backlighting of the engraving. I use many of these switches in a pitch black environment and if there was a way to light up the letters with the switch's that would be awesome. 3. Price, kinda steep. These engravings do the job
    MARTIN -- del mar, CA   3/5/2012
    completed as ordered and on time.
    JOHN R. -- woolwich twp, NJ   11/10/2011
    The custom etched paddles look great and have finally eliminated the confusion of what switches control. Our guests especially like them. I've put custom etched keypads and paddles in every switch/dimmer location. The custom etching is pricey, but worth the cost in the long run.
    NEIL -- newton, MA   9/6/2011
    The quality of the paddles is excellent. The engraving is extremely legible. No installation instructions are included. It is not hard to figure out but you have to remember to transfer the LED light pipe from the old paddle and make sure that you keep track of the tiny screws. This is a job best done BEFORE you install the switches!
    RICHARD -- washington, DC   5/28/2011
    Exactly what I needed.
    ROBERT -- reno, NV   12/24/2010
    Fine, except that the LEDs show through all the holes for an ICON switch/
    MARK -- daly city, CA   10/29/2010
    Worked perfectly. I thionk that the font size could be a bit larger for the switch paddles
    RICHARD -- los altos hills, CA   6/27/2010
    Would be nice to have the option of a larger font for those willing to be concise.
    JAY -- saint charles, MO   1/4/2010
    Product was exactly as I expected. They look great.
    GREGORY L. -- scotts valley, CA   11/20/2009
    I wish you would offer etching on my non-x10/Insteon paddles so all switches in my house would be marked! If I send in the paddles for these, could you etch them? Thanks! -- Greg
    long time customer -- dallas, Texas   11/13/2009
    6.99 is the magic price point....they are well worth it at that price
    MARK -- baton rouge, LA   4/27/2009
    Costly, but very professional looking.
    JOHN -- los angeles, CA   4/25/2009
    Product was as expected (customised). Installation was easy after finding instructions. Do not like current shipping options and would like the old UPS ground option (not the Fedex/USPS option of today).
    CHARLES -- southport, NC   12/20/2008
    Great idea!
    JIM -- lowell, IN   2/11/2008
    Etching looks nice but font is smaller than expected.
    DONNA -- roswell, GA   12/13/2007
    Great idea, reasonable price. Those tiny screws are a pain to use and it the replacement paddles isn't lined up exactly, it can cause the paddle to malfunction.
    RYAN -- burlington, NJ   12/7/2007
    Makes life easy when you have multiple switches in one area
    NICK -- st. paul, MN   9/6/2007
    I'm assuming the paddle is laser engraved, which would account for the black lettering not being as dark as I would like it. Other than that, I'm very satisfied with the paddle and will be ordering several more in the near future.
