Essential Info


The INSTEON LampLinc Dimmer (Dual-Band) is a full-featured plug-in lamp dimmer that can be remotely controlled by a Mini Remote, KeypadLinc, or any other INSTEON controller. This simple-to-use plug-in dimmer has advanced features like an adjustable ramp rate that slowly brings the lamp on, a preset dim level that stores your preferred choice of 32 brightness levels when turning the lamp on initially, as well as local control, so you can still use the lamp's built-in switch to turn the light on and off. This LampLinc is made to be plugged into any wall outlet. This dimmer can control incandescent loads up to 300 watts.

Until now, lamp and appliance controllers only received INSTEON signals via the powerline. Now with the dual-band LampLinc you not only receive RF commands directly from any RF INSTEON component (Mini Remote, Thermostat adapter) but the device doubles as an Access Point - relaying RF and powerline signals to other INSTEON-compatible devices in the home.



Never come home to a dark house again: Install HouseLinc - INSTEON Desktop Software on your computer to schedule any LampLinc or any other INSTEON-compatible device to turn on or off at any specific time or even at sunrise and sunset.

    Easy To Install
    The LampLinc is easy to plug-in and set up that you'll want to add LampLinc dimmers to all of your lamps. Just unplug the lamp, plug the lamp into the bottom outlet of the dimmer, and plug in the dimmer where the lamp was plugged in. Link the dimmer to an INSTEON controller using the Plug & Tap programming method, and you'll be able to turn the lamp on and off, brighten and dim.

    Brightness Levels
    You can adjust the brightness level of the controlled lamp by pressing and holding the on or off button of an INSTEON controller. The brightness level can also be adjusted on the module via the Up/Down buttons. Adjusting brightness levels is especially helpful when you want to create a theatrical experience when watching your favorite movie. Use a Mini Remote or pair your universal remote control with an IRLinc, and you won't even have to leave the comfort of your couch to dim the light. When you turn on the LampLinc dimmer, it automatically comes on to full brightness. Setting the preset on level will make the dimmer stop at your preferred choice of 32 brightness levels. With software you can control brightness levels in one percent increments for ultimate flexibility. This is a great feature for your bedroom to set the mood.

    Adjustable Ramp Rate
    Adjust the speed at which the controlled light turns on or off, also known as the ramp rate. For example, you may want the lamp in the kids' room to turn on instantly so you can see where you're walking. Alternatively, you may want the lamp in the master bedroom to ramp up in a soft, gentle fashion so that you're not blinded when you wake up in the morning. The ramp rate is adjustable between 0.1 seconds and 9 seconds if programmed locally; this can be done by using the convenient Up/Down buttons located on the module. The ramp rate can extend up to 8 minutes (for a simulated sunrise or sunset) if programmed remotely. This is a great addition to your morning alarm, slowly turning the light on to help you wake up. If you have programmed a slow ramp rate and want to make the lamp come on instantly, simply double tap the controller's on button. To turn the light off quickly, double tap the controller's off button.

    Red/Green Status LED
    The Status LED is used for setup programming. It is now located at the top of the module for easier viewing when programming or troubleshooting.

    Create Multi-Way Circuits
    Want to be able to synchronize a wall switch with your lamp so that when your recessed lights are controlled at the switch, your floor lamp follows along? You can do it with INSTEON. Simply link your LampLinc with an INSTEON-compatible wall switch and in seconds you're done.

    Scene Lighting
    Scenes allow you to set unique lighting levels across multiple lights and trigger them with a single command. Because the LampLinc can be a member of more than 400 scenes (i.e. "Movie Time," "Party," "Romance," etc.), you'll be able to launch various lighting scenarios with a single button press on any INSTEON controller. These are elegant features usually found only in systems costing tens of thousands of dollars and requiring extensive rewiring of your home. All scene member lights can ramp to your independently desired brightness levels at your chosen ramp rate(s), so one set of lights can dim slowly while another set turns off instantly, all controlled with one command from one button.

    Non-Volatile Memory
    All LampLinc Dimmer settings are stored in non-volatile memory and are not lost during power failures. Additionally, in the event of a power loss, the LampLinc Dimmer's lamp will return to its last brightness level when power is restored.

    Warranty
    Smarthome stands behind the entire INSTEON LampLinc line of products with a full 2-year warranty.

    I'm an X10 user from way back, switched to Insteon last year, products are darned near perfect...
    CHRIS -- jupiter, FL   6/13/2014
    Great! Worked 1st time in five minutes flat.
    TIMOTHY J -- oak park, IL   5/29/2014
    Great for lights. Ordered 13 and only had to return one. VERY EASY to setup
    DENNIS -- champaign, IL   4/30/2014
    No problem with set up, works just fine.
    MICHAEL -- college station, TX   4/21/2014
    Works great.
    RC -- woodbury, MN   3/3/2014
    dual band, on-off switch and viewable status LED all good
    Mike V -- pa,   2/23/2014
    Wow, opened box and was installed in 10 minutes. I was concerned but wow it was that simple. I am ok at being handy and this was simple.
    CHRISTOPHER -- frederick, MD   2/16/2014
    Worked as advertised. Plugged my lamp into it and now it is a part of a larger scene.
    ROBERT -- flemington, NJ   2/15/2014
    Smaller than previous models. But I wish this had a 3-pronged outlet and an uncontrolled outlet on the front like the old models. No idea why they would have changed these good features.
    GARY -- portland, OR   2/7/2014
    Works as advertised.
    Lenny -- New York   1/28/2014
    Plug it in, initiate adding it to the network through the app, press and hold the link button, plug in your lamp and your done. So simple to install add and use, and it works every time. I have 2 and being dual band they also bridge the phases for my power-line only modules. Couldn't ask for more.
    DANIEL -- cottage grove, MN   1/19/2014
    Works as described, easy to istall and get running. Seems robust.
    ALON -- great neck, NY   1/16/2014
    Very easy to set up and program. Also functions as an access point to increase the coverage range.
    SPENCER -- vidor, TX   1/16/2014
    I bought two of these and they work great. These turn on lights in a garland and a spray of lights built into cottonwood branches as accent lighting. They were easy to add to the network and have always performed flawlessly.
    WILLIAM -- washington, DC   1/10/2014
    Is as promised. The unit came packed similar to an apple product. No wonder I am liking these products more and more.
    TODD -- london, ON   1/7/2014
    I used to be an X10 user, but after trying Insteon automation products, I had no idea what I was missing! The LampLinc is a great device; having buttons on it that act as on/off as well as dimming functions is a testament to the great design and quality of Insteon products. I did have one LampLinc unit fail, however. I contacted Smarthome customer support (they were excellent) and was able to arrange a no-hassle exchange. I'm a huge fan of Insteon products, but I may need a second job to pay for the habit ;)
    JAY B -- las cruces, NM   1/3/2014
    I am using the ISY 994i controller. The ISY does not dim X10 devices correctly, so to get a precise dim, you need and Insteon device. These work great. I wish they were less expensive and I would buy more of them.
    JIM -- huntington beach, CA   1/3/2014
    Bought these before, I know they work great. This is just an addition to my automation.
    PETER -- arlington, WV   1/3/2014
    Unit works OK but scheduling dimming function in iPad app is confusing and non-intuitive.
