  • Control this dimmer remotely from anywhere
  • Programmable on-level and fade on/off speed

  • Doubles as an Access Point

Essential Info

This high-tech yet easy to use dimmer takes your home into the future by giving you the ability to set the speed at which the light fades On and Off, a preset on-level for always remembering your favorite brightness level and best of all being able to remotely control the dimmer from a handheld remote, wall keypad, computer or mobile phone (controllers are sold separately). With high-end quality, at-a-glance LED status and remote controllability, you'll see how easy it is to create your own home of the future.

The SwitchLinc installs like a traditional wall switch with the exception of requiring connection to neutral. Most homes have a neutral wire available (see How to check if I have neutral wires?). If you do not have a neutral wire available, use the SwitchLinc 2-Wire Dimmer. Once installed setup is quick and easy using simple programming.

SwitchLinc now supports 100-277VAC and 50/60Hz electrical systems, enabling INSTEON users outside of the US the opportunity to utilize our most advanced in-wall dimmer switch.

    Slim Design
    Similar dimmers are up to 50 percent deeper than the SwitchLinc Dimmer. Thanks to its slim design, it makes installation easy even in small junction boxes.

    Beautiful, High-Quality Construction
    Unlike other switches, the SwitchLinc Dimmer offers the natural feel of high-end dimmers. You'll love the crisp, tactile response with each touch instead of the mushy feeling of other brands. The SwitchLinc Dimmer is designed and manufactured to high-end specifications and goes through over 10 quality control tests before arriving at your doorstep. This modern Decora-style switch will blend with any room's design. Additional colors are available and sold separately. Choose the color that best suits your room's decor: Ivory, Light Almond, Almond, Black, Brown, or Gray. Don't forget to order a matching wallplates.

    Scene Lighting
    Scenes allow you to control multiple lights, rooms or even the whole home with a single command. Because the SwitchLinc Dimmer 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. All 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. If you want to control multiple scenes from one controller, we recommend the INSTEON KeypadLinc Dimmer.

    Compatibility
    The SwitchLinc 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 it can respond to an X10 power line command from an X10 controller. Please note that INSTEON devices repeat INSTEON signals but not X10.

    Dual-Band
    This member of the SwitchLinc family is dual band so it has the ability to communicate using both the electrical wires in the home (powerline) as well as using radio frequency (RF). This increases reliability not only for the SwitchLinc but for all devices on an INSTEON home control network (similar to the function of an Access Point).

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

    Note: As with all wall dimmers, the SwitchLinc may feel warm during operation. Rigorously tested and approved to UL-standards, the amount of heat generated falls well within approved limits and poses no threat to your home or the lifespan of the device.

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

    Works great so far.
    SCOTT -- menifee, CA   7/3/2014
    Functional, nice looking dimmer, easily installed. Integrates nicely into a whole-house set-up via UDI's ISY series controllers.
    PAUL -- mc cool junction, NE   6/30/2014

    TIMOTHY J -- oak park, IL   6/13/2014
    Great Product
    RUSSELL L -- warren, OH   6/5/2014
    The dimmers work great once I exchanged my old CFL bulbs for new dimmable CFLs. I bought a few different types tested them out until I got just the right range of lighting. Great affect...
    Dave -- tampa, FL   5/31/2014
    This so-called sale price is the regular price at Home Depot!
    MARCELO -- port, XX   5/29/2014
    Great product with great quality.
    TODD -- carrollton, TX   5/29/2014
    Terrific switch.
    PAUL -- manchester, MD   5/18/2014
    Working well so far. This isn't the first of these switches I've bought, and all of them have worked as advertised and are still working. I wish instead of wires they had screw terminals like normal switches. That costs them one star.
    CHRISTOPHER -- thornwood, NY   5/17/2014
    Use them inside and outside(to replace x10 by pool equipment. This past winter was a real test and had no problems.
    KENNETH -- delray beach, FL   5/11/2014
    Great
    Frustrated -- san diego, CA   5/10/2014
    These dimmers are unreliable. At first they work great. I've purchased over 100 switches, and for about the length of the warranty period they worked fine. About 6 months later... Different story. I've now lost about 10 of them after about 4 years. The keypads are significantly worse. I contacted Smarthome, and they WOULD NOT REPLACE FAILED SWITCHES in the first batch of about 10 that failed. I asked to speak with managers and everything. Now I've got a second batch, and I'm frustrated as hell that I need to buy new ones, strip them out of the wall and replace them and then re-program again. This isn't how good companies operate, and while we all make mistakes, not correcting them gets you a 1 star rating.
    LEON -- skokie, IL   5/9/2014
    Dimming function not compatible with some LED bulbs. Otherwise an excellent product.
    FLORANTE F -- kent, WA   5/7/2014
    They are perfect, easy to setup, I used them for replacement of my 3 way and 4 way switches.
    BILL -- philadelphia, PA   5/5/2014
    There great. Our clients love them Our electricians love them. Going to order 20 more.
    KANU -- burnaby, BC   4/26/2014
    I RMA'ed 1 of 4 switches installed 10 months ago. It was one of 3 components that died while we were on vacation last fall. A motion sensor, switch and LED bulb all mysteriously died around the same time at the front door, I'm assuming there was some sort of electrical surge but its still a stretch to explain why the sensor also died. But now a second of the 4 switches has just gone wonky on me. It has stopped accepting control commands, I can read its status and it can be switched on and off manually but it no longer accepts control commands. I have tried reset but no improvement. There is another of the same switch beside it in the same box and that switch is working fine. Seems like another RMA coming up.
    CARTER -- sandpoint, ID   4/26/2014
    Its slow ramp-up capability is fantastic. It works especially well with the room sensor
