Overview

  • Allows you to remotely control lights or appliances where a neutral wire is not present in the switch box
  • Controls any load type, such as fluorescent lights, fans, and motors!
  • Convenient: Once installed, companion switch and fixture module operate as one device from the switch
  • Uses existing wires to provide a neutral to your companion switch
  • Award-winning INSTEON technology provides superior performance and reliability

Essential Info

Can't use INSTEON because you don't have neutral wires in your switch boxes? You can now, with our new INSTEON 2-wire On/Off Switch Kit. Remotely control your lights or appliances, even if you don't have those once-needed neutral wires in your switch boxes. Now you can enjoy the speed and reliability of INSTEON where never-before possible.

Don't have a neutral somewhere you'd like dimming control? An INSTEON 2-wire Dimmer Kit is also available.

Do I have neutrals?

How it Works
The INSTEON 2-wire On/Off Switch Kit comes with two main pieces: a companion switch that installs in the switch box and a fixture module that installs in your light (or appliance) fixture. With these two devices you'll now be able to convert one of your two wires in your switch box to a neutral, enabling reliable control of your light or appliance. The companion switch and fixture module are "paired" at the factory so both devices will act as one. This means that once they're installed, you won't have to go back into the fixture, either for control OR for linking to other INSTEON-compatible devices. Simply put, the companion switch's SET button acts as a remote SET button for the fixture module, giving you added convenience and flexibility.

    Scene Lighting
    Scenes allow you to control multiple lights, rooms or even the whole home with a single command. Because the 2-wire kit 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. These are elegant features usually found only in systems costing tens of thousands of dollars and requiring extensive rewiring of your home.

    X10 Compatible
    The INSTEON 2-wire Kit 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 it can respond to X10 commands from an X10 controller and it can send X10 commands to X10 devices. Please note that INSTEON devices repeat INSTEON signals but not X10.

    Non-Volatile Memory
    All 2-wire kit settings are stored in non-volatile memory and are not lost during power failures. Additionally, in the event of a power loss, the 2-wire On/Off Kit will return to its last on/off state when power is restored.

    Certifications and Warranty
    All SmartLabs Design 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.

    JERRY -- kalamazoo, MI   4/16/2012
    Works as advertised. An excellent solution for a "no neutral" issue. I rated 4 out of 5 because I would like to see a dimming product made available. I'm sure that will be coming down the road as the technology evolves.
    JONATHAN -- springville, UT   3/11/2012
    This was a very helpful device and helped solve a problem where I had three way switches with only two wires. My only complaint is that it comes with the ICON switch where all my other switches are the standard SwitchLinc Relay or Dimmer, but since it's in an out of the way location it's not too noticible. The linking scenario seems to be a bit different. I had to push the set button for most linking rather than the main paddle, but it does work and I very pleased.
    NED -- towanda, KS   1/2/2012
    Actually, I did not get this to work. the problem was unwanted turn ons. I solved my problem very successfully with other insteon equipment. I give it an ok rating because in fairness, I did not contact tech support.
    STEVEN -- wesley hills, NY   12/29/2011
    as advertised, works like a charm.
    SEAN -- derwood, MD   12/9/2011
    Pros: Simple solution to automating the florescent lights in our laundry area when combined with a motion sensor, making it ‘hands free’ and saving energy. The single LED (as opposed to the light bar on most Insteon switches) is a much cleaner installation for areas with simple on/off conditions (and you can see if the light’s on in the first place… Cons: the ICON light and the Insteon Switch Kit switch are different colors, looking somewhat odd in a double-gang installation.
    CRAIG -- elk grove, CA   12/9/2010
    worked as expected for the most part. One of them locked up in the on mode about 4 days after installation. I had to power cycle the receiver. (what a pain). So far it has been working since.
    DAVID -- porter ranch, CA   10/3/2010
    Very good. 5 stars. It worked as advertised.
    DEREK -- billerica, MA   9/2/2010
    This is a life saver! I had a ceiling light setup in my garage that I was trying to convert to an Insteon controlled location, but the switch was wired as a switch leg and not with a neutral in the box. Using the 2474S I was able to convert this setup to insteon without any rewiring. The factory paired unit works great with my ISY99, just like it was a regular insteon switch.
    JOHN -- birmingham, AL   8/30/2010
    Let's hope that this one (areplacement) works better than the first one.
    SCOTT -- columbia heights, MN   11/15/2009
    Worked great, although not as intended. I had only two wires at my fixture, which is not how this product is intended to work. However, I was able to wire up the fixture module inline at the fixture, and use the switch on another nearby circuit which controls the fixture over Insteon.
    DEREK C.Y. -- taipei county, XX   5/23/2009
    It works good. Very fit to my need.
    MACONDRAY -- forestville, CA   2/25/2009
    Excellent, used on kitchen light to control OutletLinc in garage, to trigger Watts hot water recirculation pump.
    GLENN -- napa, CA   3/21/2008
    Simple to install. Great for a remote location where running a switch leg would be a problem.
    ROBERT -- west lafayette, IN   12/20/2007
    Two different companion switches quit working. Fixture module works as expected.
