  • Add remote control to virtually any switch or outlet
  • The smallest inline module ever! Fits into almost all boxes
  • Turn your antique, custom color or non-standard wall switches into home automation switches
  • Wire in behind your existing switches, outlets and above your light fixtures
  • Sense wires allow for control via a connected, hard-wired switch
  • Compatible with latching switches as well as single momentary and dual momentary switches

Essential Info

Adding remote control to wired lights usually means replacing switches, not any more. With INSTEON's new dual-band Micro On/Off Module, you can keep your antique, toggle or decorative wall switches while adding the same remote control functionality of SwitchLinc.

This compact module installs behind your existing switch, giving it full INSTEON automation while retaining local control at the switch by way of sense wires. Connect the sense wires to any style wall switch to match any type of designer theme (antique, push-button, metal, etc.) Micro On/Off is so tiny that it can be installed as an in-line module within a fixture box, providing remote control without having to run wires to a wall switch.

INSTEON also offers a Micro Dimmer Module and a Micro Open/Close Module.


What's Included

  • INSTEON Micro On/Off Module
  • Quick-Start Guide
  • More Info

    INSTEON Micro On/Off is compatible with latching, single momentary and dual momentary switches. By default, it comes programmed for latching switches such as paddles and toggles; it is easily configured for single and dual momentary switches with a simple reprogramming procedure during installation.

    Due to its hidden nature, we highly recommend using a home management controller (such as HouseLinc) or the free INSTEON app with INSTEON Hub to manage Micro Open/Close.

    Order received promptly, kept as spare.
    FENTON -- melbourne, FL   1/26/2014
    Easy installation. Fits in existing box, even with large switches and rheostats. Can use existing switches, don't have any problems matching colors.
    PIERRE -- carleton place, ON   1/18/2014
    Probably one of the coolest home automation devices I ever bought. The fact that it turns an everyday switch into an insteon device is fanominal. I installed mine on the light of my range hood over my stove. This is perfect for this type of application. The best part is that it turns the on off button into a toggle button. Very cool.
    STEVE -- san jose, CA   1/12/2014
    Should be $25, then would give it 5 stars. Nice, compact device. Great that it is dual band. Should be cheaper. Also, should have a way to tuck in unused yellow/purple wires.
    HENRY -- montgomery center, VT   1/9/2014
    Good design
    JAMES -- manheim, PA   1/4/2014
    Fits in an electrical box behind a switch OK. I like that it has screw terminals rather then pigtails. This saves room in the box and makes installation easier.
    MAXWELL -- la mesa, CA   12/6/2013
    Took a while to get the installation wrapped around my head. Diagram does a good job, but if you are confused just consult an electrician. Big plus in the dual band!!!! Without it this would not work for me. I am very pleased with the wireless capability.
    CHRIS -- armstrong creek, XX   11/18/2013
    Great thanks
    ALESSANDRO -- taguatinga, XX   10/11/2013
    This module is ideal for those who want to keep the existing switch and use your existing installation. Just take only one neutral and one phase conductor to power the module.
    HARRY -- palo alto, CA   10/4/2013
    Excellent product for an older home. I used this micro unit at the box for a LED light. I used the two wires to the switch for line and neutral. This allows me to still have power line control as well as RF to the device.
    TIM -- san ramon, CA   9/21/2013
    Small, yes, and that's good, but the radio only works until 5 feet away. As mentioned elsewhere, the screw terminals are iffy when cramming it in electrical box - I used the suggestion in another comment, attach short pigtails of stranded wire.
    CHRIS -- armstrong creek, XX   9/19/2013
    RALPH -- belhaven, NC   9/19/2013
    Can be a bit tough to fit into some smaller electrical boxes. Sense wire doesn't always work, but remote commands do.
    RALPH -- belhaven, NC   9/5/2013
    Easy to wire in, works nice, although can be somewhat difficult to fit into some small electrical boxes.
    Vanhalo -- Chattanooga   8/2/2013
    I like it. I replaced an outdoor ceiling fan with a Federal Vibratone Horn to serve as an outdoor panic alarm. Works well for this application.
    HEEBOK -- gongju, XX   7/6/2013
    It works very well and easy to use.
    HARVEY -- venice, CA   6/23/2013
    very dissatisfied - product does not work as advertised. Tech Support has done nothing to solve the problem. It has been three weeks since I submitted a tech support request, they confirmed having gotten my request and confirmed they could reproduce the problem.
    -- carmel, IN   6/17/2013
    Overall – great idea – however the execution needs help. The whole thing seems extremely fragile – the screws can be easily stripped if not careful. The sense wires feel like they are about 30 Gauge wire – ridiculously frail – I don’t get why insteon couldn’t spring for a little thicker wire, very difficult trying to join 30 Gauge hair-thin wire with a solid copper wire in a wire nut. Finally, it would be nice if you could configure the local relay to be able to disable it from enabling the load. In my use case using a series of outdoor motion detecting flood lights, I wanted the sense to broadcast a motion being detected – then have the software/controller determine response (based on daylight/other factors). I had to buy 2 modules for each of my outdoor motion sensing floodlights – one to sense motion and another to enable the load to the floodlights – total pain and added expense. Overall – I gave it 2 stars because it needs help – total first gen product..
    RANDALL -- rochester, MN   6/16/2013
    These units are a welcome addition to the Insteon warrior's toolkit and it's worked exactly as advertised. The wiring terminals are not super-strong, so I would strongly recommend using short pigtails of stranded wire (12 or 14 AWG as appropriate) to connect to them rather than running 12 or 14 AWG solid wire into them. The terminals will certainly accommodate solid wire, but any flexing of the solid wire against the terminal would seem to run the risk of "prying" on the terminal and damaging its connection to the internals of the module.
    BRIAN -- peachtree corners, GA   5/4/2013
    Solved a problem with no neutral at my legacy switch. I put this at the light and used the legacy switch to trigger the Micro On/Off module.
