Essential Info

Say goodbye to plug-in lamp modules and get a clean, professional look with the new OutletLinc Dimmer. This revolutionary receptacle is the first of its kind to offer a built-in dimmer that can be remotely controlled from anywhere using devices such as a remote control, wall keypad or even your smartphone.

The simple-to-use OutletLinc 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 load sense, so you can still use the lamp's built-in switch to turn the light on and off. It's made to be installed in place of any wall receptacle and controls incandescent loads up to 300 Watts. Also features a standard (always on) outlet rated up to 15 Amps.

Software configurable
Using INSTEON software such as HouseLinc, you can control, program and manage settings for OutletLinc Dimmer and any other INSTEON devices in your network. You can even schedule timed events, receive email alerts when devices are activated and more. Learn more about HouseLinc.

Unparalleled Safety Features
  • Tamper resistant outlets
    • Spring-loaded shutter mechanism allows plugs to enter but resists access to single-pronged items like keys, hairpins, or nails. Conforms to NEC Article 406.11.
  • Over-heating protection
    • If ever the internal temperature of the receptacle rises to unsafe levels, OutletLinc Dimmer will automatically shut off power.
  • Dimmer Key
    • In order for the top outlet dimmer to work, the lamp plug must have the Dimmer Key attached. This key is a small, razor-thin piece that goes over the lamp plug. This prevents others in your home from unplugging the lamp and plugging in non-dimmable appliances that could result in damaging of the appliance.

Reliability and Network Enhancements
This latest member of the INSTEON family of products features dual-band technology which allows OutletLinc Dimmer to send and receive commands using both radio frequency (RF) and power line. So not only can you control it from power line-only or RF-only devices, it will repeat both signal types for other devices in your network, making your entire INSTEON system faster.

A dual-band device can also act as a phase bridge when paired with another dual-band device in the home.

Available in white, light almond, almond, black, brown, gray and ivory.

Also available in a non-dimming, powerline-only version: OutletLinc Relay.


What's Included

  • OutletLinc Dimmer
  • Outlet Dimmer Key
  • 3 wire nuts
  • Quick Start Guide
  • Wall plate sold separately
  • More Info

    For added convenience, the OutletLinc Dimmer bottom outlet is always on. So, whether you need an outlet in the hallway for the vacuum, or an outlet behind the living room couch for an INSTEON tabletop controller, you'll never have to worry about the outlet being switched off. Also, if you ever need to switch the top outlet on manually, you can either use OutletLinc's built-in ON/OFF button (located between its two outlets) or turn your lamp or appliance on and off with its own ON/OFF switch (with load sensing enabled).

    X10 Compatible
    INSTEON OutletLinc Dimmer 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 the module can respond to X10 commands from an X10 controller. Please note that INSTEON devices repeat INSTEON signals but not X10.

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

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

    ROBERT -- fort washington, PA   4/20/2014
    Device too complicated to program with poorly written documentation - tech support guy was nearly useless - product appears to be for hobbyists only - my son and I could not figure it out and we both have advanced EE degrees with combined 50+ years work experience in the field
    JAMES -- phoenix, AZ   4/19/2014
    I was nudged toward the dimmer outlet because it was on sale and the more expensive "dimmable" feature was roughly the same price as the non dimmable outlet. I wish I was informed that the dimmable outlet requires a special "key" and cannot accept grounded devices and it seemed to be a bit finicky and ultimately stopped receiving commands, thankfully within the warrantee and you made it easy to return
    DALE -- sun city, AZ   3/8/2014
    Doesn't dimm with my dimmable cfl, but works great for just on and off.
    ROSS -- long beach, CA   2/26/2014
    I did not do my research good enough and have just put this in my parts box after purchasing a Micro On/Off module to use in a single gang box with a standard Decora receptacle with the hot buss cut. The external key is a warranty call back waiting to happen and I did not want an unhappy customer and non-paid time to keep my reputation good. I love the 2443-222 and I am glad that I found it for a previous customers job. I ordered 2 of these because I needed 1 for another job. My backup extra got installed today as a replacement for the 2472DWH that was a poor choice by me for my customer's need. This is good under some circumstances, but not for my application. It operated as it should and the setup is easy, but the external key is a liability.
    KENNETH -- sudbury, MA   2/9/2014
    Works as advertized, easy to install if you are comfortable with replacing an outlet in your home.
    RONALD -- woodbury, MN   2/8/2014
    Only problem I had was the linking of the Togglelinc to the OutletLinc Dimmer. Took a few attempts to make the link, but once done - it's worked fine.
    STEVE -- san jose, CA   1/12/2014
    Terrible. Won't link to hub when 20 other devices can. Spent weeks on email with support. Cannot pair. Will be asking credit card to reverse charge as last return they never refunded my money.
    ERNEST -- chatham, NJ   1/6/2014
    Easy to install and set up. Very happy with it. We decided to use the Insteon Outlet rather than the Insteon Module strictly for appearance.

    JAMES -- sammamish, WA   1/3/2014
    Replaced a plug-in next to mantle to control Holiday lighting. The dual band has improved reliability of other devices in that room too.
    RALF -- tuscaloosa, AL   12/31/2013
    Always space for improvement but overall I am very satisfied and pleased with the products, the service and the package
    JAMES -- sammamish, WA   12/31/2013
    I installed 2 of these for lighting control and to eliminate the need for Access Points. However, dual band did not work. I could not get my KPL to link across the circuits.
    Rich -- minneapolis, MN   12/10/2013
    A great device - particularly for bedroom table lamps - no need to get out of bed when using a remote control. I've got 4 of these and they are a great device.
    DAVID -- alameda, CA   12/2/2013
    Wiring and setup was easy, works great out of the box. Far superior to previous X-10 setup. Time will tell.
    RALPH -- belhaven, NC   9/19/2013
    Excellent product.
    MATT -- reston, VA   9/12/2013
    Works perfectly, very handy for plug-in lights in the living room. The security key is a major plus, to keep people from dimming my laptop if I plug it in there - not sure what that would do, but I can't imagine it would be good.
    JON -- houston, TX   5/24/2013
    Bought it to replace a failed Lamplinc though I don't think it has the same RF range. Works as advertised and easy to install.
    RALPH -- glen rock, NJ   4/19/2013
    Works great, not a huge fan of the little dimming key you need to use as I have a feeling I'll end up loosing it.
    JOHN -- sunnyvale, CA   4/15/2013
    Works great, however wish it was a three prong plug!
    Steve R -- henderson, Nevada   2/25/2013
    Difficult to use with the 2412N controller. I had to plug the 2412N directly into the Outletlinc for it to be recognized. This is advertised as a Dual-Band device, but I have my doubts if it is working correctly, of if perhaps the RF range is minimal. I have 2 additional Dual Band Switchlincs within 15 feet of this device and the 2412N would still not recognize it.
    MARK -- delaware, OH   2/11/2013
    Ordered the first 2 of these for lighting in the home theater. With the little key to prevent people from putting non-dimming loads into the outlet, these are a great idea. I will probably be using more as I finish the conversion to Insteon
