  • Use INSTEON-controlled devices to lock and/or unlock a Morning Industry RF Deadbolts and Doorlocks
  • Provides access control from an INSTEON network
  • Allow entry or exit by locking or unlocking doors at the press of a button
  • INSTEON compatibility for outstanding performance

Essential Info

Add access control to your INSTEON network by using the MorningLinc - INSTEON Morning Industry RF Doorknob/Deadbolt Controller to provide secure entry to or exit from your premises. Replace your standard deadbolts and/or doorlocks with Morning Industry RF deadbolts and/or doorlocks (sold separately) and the MorningLinc will allow you to activate the locking mechanism via radio frequency (RF) to lock or unlock your door from any INSTEON controller. Using INSTEON automation, you can remotely unlock doors from other areas of your property using a switch, keypad or remote control (each sold separately). Combine this with the INSTEON Hub and you can lock and unlock a Morning Industry's deadbolt or doorlock via a web browser from anywhere in the world.

The MorningLinc can be programmed to control more than one door lock simultaneously, so if you have two or more door locks within 30 ft. range, you can activate the lock on a front door and garage door (as an example) at the same time.

Required Accessories

Important Note Regarding Lock Status: The MorningLinc converts INSTEON commands to Morning Industry's RF commands. Since this RF is one-way, an INSTEON system cannot confirm whether the lock has received the RF command or not. Please exercise your best judgment when remotely controlling or automating door locks.

    I use a isy-99i system. It has yet to connect. Nothing but frustration. Their website is useless for any help. Connected to the lock with no problems.
    D. DALE -- lafayette, LA   6/12/2014
    Inconsistent. Sometimes it receives the signal, sometimes not.
    TIMOTHY J -- oak park, IL   5/29/2014
    Works great
    MARK -- fleming, CO   2/18/2014
    This lock works like a dream. It replaced my existing door hardware without any alteration, drilling or cutting. Installed in minutes, and I can remotely control the door to let trades people and guests in. Having the IP camera and motion sensor installed also enables me to ensure that people have vacated so I can lock up after them. I never have to give keys or codes to anyone! It's fabulous!
    Judy -- atlanta, GA   10/17/2013
    Never could get it to work with smart phone. My MorningLinc deadbolt quit working about 6 months Fter purchase. I sent it back to the company who said it was from an incapatabilty with SmartLinc.
    Joe -- edmonton, Alberta   5/14/2013
    I have had 3 of these in service for 2 years now, and they work excellent. Still can't believe the price is that low.
    ARNOLD -- campbell, CA   4/25/2013
    Excellent product and fast shipping!
    Ron Morasse -- westbury, NY   3/20/2013
    I am well experienced in home control and found setup difficult/not reliable. Finally got it set up and lock failed after a few months. Currently trying tocontact Morning Industries to see what can be done short of buying new lock. If i have to replace I think i will change vendors. RonM

    Setup-Very confusing and very difficult, however if you can go through the trial and error, eventually you can get it to respond to the command to unlock and the command to lock your door. This in conjunction with the Smartlinc/Smartphone app controller does open up a world of possibilities and conveniences. I can open up my front door from my car even before I fill my hands up with all my stuff. I chose the MorningStar lock that this operates because my homeowners association is very particular about the hardware used. I had a keypad lock on my door and they made me take it off. The Morningstart lock looked virtually identical to my original deadbolt so they will not have any reason to notice it. One thing that you should know, and I totally understand why it is not possible, this unit does not know if the lock actually activated. That is to say, if you send a lock command, then there is not way to know if the deadbolt actually moved into position and secured the door. If you are looking to close that open loop and have the capability to know that the door is indeed locked and secure then you would need to add to this system, perhaps a camera to look at the position of the deadbolt? I would have given it 5 stars but it was truly confusing as to how to set the thing up and took multiple tries.
    DONALD -- edmonds, WA   11/10/2012
    Works as advertised
    JOHN -- ponte vedra, FL   6/30/2012
    Works fine - simple to use. Linking to SmartLinc software was a major problem (reason for 3 not 5 stars). Directions are actually wrong for ON and OFF command setting. Step 2 should be "Go to SmartLinc scene and click ADD". Set button method will NOT work.
    TIM -- dawson creek, BC   4/15/2012
    Awesome !
    Unsatisfied -- Northern VA   3/28/2012
    This is not easily integrated with an ISY-99i. Expect pain and suffering if you want to add it to a scene.
    jaygee -- glendale, CA   12/6/2011
    Works very well. A few things to consider: 1 The range is 30 feet, so if you want to control two or more locks, you may need more than one of these. 2 There is no real feedback on whether your lock is locked or not like on Insteon switches. Not a big issue for me. 3 When programming, use an extension cord so you can get this controller as close to the morning industry lock as possible. I was 4 feet away and I couldn't program it until I was within a foot. Once programmed, it can then be up to 30 feet away and will work fine.
    BRIAN -- las vegas, NV   9/26/2011
    With this module the Morning Industy deadbolt is fully integrated. I use the Powerlinc controller/timer to lock the door every hour, just in case I forget to.
    MAGNO -- adolfo lopez mateos, XX   8/17/2011
    the manual is not that clear
    DUSTIN -- essex junction, VT   6/9/2011
    Functions correctly and was able to setup a relationship manually with a KeypadLinc. I could not however get the device to work in misterhouse. This is not the fault of the product just misterhouse.
    JONATHAN -- orange city, IA   5/25/2011
    Works well.
    DAVID -- delta, OH   5/13/2011
    ROBERT -- miami, FL   1/8/2011
    Works on both of my exterior doors. Range is sufficient to control 2 doors from one unit. Easy to link up. cons: I didn't understand that even though the unit will work on several doors, it can't distinguish between them. Either it locks them all at once or it unlocks them all at once. You can see the problem with this when you only want your front door to open but the back door unlocks also automatically. I needed separate control of the two doors to do what I expected to do.
