    Easy to Set Up
    IRLinc is compatible with IR codes found in most universal remotes, which nearly guarantees your remote will work with it. IRLinc's talk-back LED allows you to identify easily which IR codes are compatible. After programming a compatible IR code into your remote, IRLinc is easy to set up like other Smarthome-brand INSTEON products, using simple Plug-n-Tap setup.

    X10 Compatible
    IRLinc is fully INSTEON compatible and X10 ready. Homeowners with existing X10 networks can easily migrate to an INSTEON network without having to discard all their existing X10 devices. X10 ready means that IRLinc can control X10 devices, using X10 commands. Please note that IRLinc can control either X10 devices or INSTEON devices, but not both for any given IR command sent from your universal remote.

    Non-Volatile Memory
    All IRLinc settings are stored in non-volatile memory and are not lost during power failures.

    Certifications and Warranty
    All IRLinc products are safety approved. The factory for SmartLabs Design Products is ISO9001 certified. Because of this passion for quality, Smarthome stands behind IRLinc with a full 2-year warranty.

    Credit Card Remote
    The IRLinc now ships with the credit card remote. The credit card remote is small enough to be taken with you anywhere you go in your home. With the credit card remote you can control 12 scenes - 8 On / Off button pairs, 4 scene activation buttons and all on / off. You can easily set up scenes with add/remove buttons. The credit card remote does not support X10.

    RUSSELL L -- warren, OH   6/5/2014
    IRLinc receiver is easy to set up and to use it works perfect in my home theater for controlling lights, light combination and fan.
    RICHARD -- troy, MO   1/26/2014
    The converter works as advertised. However, it's necessary to ensure the indicator lights are reacting as the instructions state when programming. If not, start the programming over.
    MATT -- austin, TX   1/3/2014
    works excellently with my Harmony remote. Very discrete and easy to program.
    HAROLD -- el cajon, CA   10/26/2013
    After trying two units was unable to get unit to learn X10 commands and work with a Philips Pronto Univ remote. Problems may have been result of IR Code groups used with Pronto. Customer service was excellent and the both units returned without a hitch.
    MARK -- conroe, TX   10/11/2013
    I'm very disappointed. I purchased this product to use with my universal IR remote to command my X10 modules. Unfortunately, it would not program despite what its description says. I really need a product like this. I sure hope smarthome perfects, one that can work as this one is advertised.
    Ron -- Illinois   10/9/2013
    Kind of works, but isn't fully supported by Houselinc software. Programming specific buttons to control lights 1 to 1 is pretty consistent, but if try to program an entire scene to execute on a button press, it may or may not work. I have a lighting scene that works well turning on, but then when turning off it turns the lights off and the buttons on the keypad link for the same lights on. In houselinc the commands are straight forward... it says turn keypad linc button backlight off and when it's run it actually turns them on!!! After an hour with technical assistance, they told me that the houselinc software doesn't really support this device, and that they don't have any other software that will either.
    KELLY -- katy, TX   10/5/2013
    Very good device. Although not supported by the Hub app (1.5), it is supported by Houselinc, which makes it easier to configure. IR codes are compatible with Harmony remotes.
    Gregg -- Santa Cruz   9/4/2013
    This device is not supported in HouseLinc. I have a lot of devices and use HouseLinc to create my scenes. For a one-off, pressing buttons on the controller and responder is tolerable, but not when you're truly automating. It sort of works with my Logitech Harmony remote. sort of meaning it is unpredictable how many times I have to press the button on the Harmony If you really like gizmos, well, ok, go for it.
    R CHRISTOPHER -- springfield, VA   7/6/2013
    flaky... can't tell if its the receiver or the remote, but only reacts 1 out of 10 times.
    MARK -- delaware, OH   2/11/2013
    Great little box. Using it in the home server to have the Harmony remote control the lights.
    EDWARD -- walkersville, MD   2/9/2013
    I would love to sing the praises of this product but the system I am designing needs the Smart Hub controller and it will be on backorder, again. 6 weeks. But I can't wait. It's going to be nice, I hope. I'm assuming that. But it should. I'll give it three anticipation stars.
    LOUIS -- west bloomfield, MI   1/11/2013
    Works perfectly, when it works. The remote is intermittent and needs to be smacked every once in a while. This is the second one with the same problem.
    David -- orlando, FL   12/6/2012
    DO NOT RECOMMEND FOR LARGE SCALE INSTEON instalations. Configuring scense using Houselinc are netoriously slow 30 mins.
    JOHN -- timonium, MD   10/7/2012
    Fantastic device. I was able to program my AV remote to control scenes and a macro button to set up the DVD player, TV, A/V receiver and lighting scene for movie viewing. Installation was a bit tedious, but understandably necessary due to the complexity and versatility of the device. The end result is well worth the investment in both time and money.
    THOMAS -- sterling, VA   5/14/2012
    Was easy to set up and program the remote. Working great.
    cfelix -- Florida   4/9/2012
    Had this for more than a year and works flawlessly with my Logitech Harmony remote. I find it easier to program with the included remote.
    BILL -- seneca, SC   3/26/2012
    Works well with my Logitech 1100 remote.
    Wayne S -- Canada   3/25/2012
    Technician Technologist for 28 years: Instructions written by monkeys and tech support will cost you a day off of work. Says it supports x10 and can be used with universal remotes but cannot tell you how to make it work, so far a waste of time and money!
    CLAUDIO -- sao paulo, XX   3/23/2012
    Good design and easy to setting up.
    JOERG -- martinez, CA   3/4/2012
    Works as described. Gives great freedom of control.
