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 a 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 and Almond or for additional color options purchase one of our paddle color change kits. 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.

    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.

    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.

    This item doesn't work. I already tried install and uninstall and install again. The led not light up and the dimmer doesn't work. I already got in touch with the store to exchange the device.
    PAUL -- fresno, CA   2/21/2014
    I now have a coupke of dozen of these dimmers. some are the high watt lime this one and others are the standard version. the bottom line is they do exactly what they advertise they will do. they are very easy to program as well as to install. in short, the only criticism I have is they are somewhat expensive when yiu live in a house where almost every room is wired for threeway or fourway switches.
    DEREK -- london, ON   2/10/2014
    Exceptional customer service! Great product too.
    WARD -- fullerton, CA   12/31/2013
    Synchronization of all the switches in 3-way and 4-way configuration continue to be a problem. Indicators do not stay in sync with each other giving false impression of lights being off, when they are actually been turned on from another location.
    JIM -- satellite beach, FL   12/30/2013
    nice looking, works well
    Rich -- minneapolis, MN   12/10/2013
    The switch works fine though it runs very hot. Please remember to de-rate the switch's capacity if you have to remove any tabs for a multigang box.
    BRIAN -- oak creek, WI   11/5/2013
    Good for high current control, but if you plan on using it anywhere near it's maximum current rating, make a budget to replace them every 4-5 years. They run VERY hot at 6.5 A (780 W), and after about 5 years, won't respond reliably. I have replaced all three of the ones I installed 5 years ago, which wouldn't turn off by remote any longer.
    SCOTT -- pleasanton, CA   10/7/2013
    Works Perfect!!!
    GERALD -- san diego, CA   10/4/2013
    This dimmer is pricey, but it will let you dim a FEIT BPCEA19/OMB00/LED 13.5 watt bulb down to very low levels. This allows for use as night lights in required areas while being able to provide correct illumination if desired.
    THOMAS -- portola valley, CA   7/7/2013
    I was told that these would interoperable with the now discontinued Lutron programmable switches, but they don't. Also, for a three way set-up, you need to buy two expensive switches. With Lutron, only one switch was needed along with an inexpensive remote. I stall action has also been a problem.
    MICHAEL -- plano, TX   6/2/2013
    Great looking and works great
    RICHARD -- tiburon, CA   5/9/2013
    Excellent quality and performance. The process of acquiring this device through Smarthome was most efficient and effective.
    GARY -- portland, OR   2/9/2013
    The new switch works perfectly. Thanks for your support.
    fatty -- Deep South   1/30/2013
    works, In my 3 gang box the other switches would not fit with this ones heat dissipation fins. The switch appears identical to the 600w version but the fins extend from the side effectively making the mounting plate wider. The instructions say that you can break off the tabs and each one reduces the capacity by 100 w. Removing all 4 makes it a 600 w switch which is just what it looks like. Anyway if you are installing in a single box go get 'em, in my experience a triple gang would not work. Hope this helps someone.
    EDWARD -- avon by the sea, NJ   12/14/2012
    They're much better then the old BSR units, however, manual operation of the switch is sometimes temperamental
    BRANNON -- glen burnie, MD   10/29/2012
    Great product very easy to sync and set favorite mode!! Too easy!
    RUSSELL -- tampa, FL   7/8/2012
    This switch replaced an earlier model which had been redesigned and has performed perfectly so far. It runs cooler to the touch and hasn't exhibited any of the problems of the earlier version. Smarthome replaced the switch with no strings attached and I am very pleased with the service and concern.
    JEFFREY -- potomac, MD   7/4/2012
    Long lasting, trouble free device can handle up to 1000 watts of load. Dual-band only makes it better.
    MATT G -- carthage, IL   3/11/2012
    So far I've had to break the tabs off every time I used this, so would have saved a lot of money getting the standard 600W version. MAYBE some internal components are rated higher and will still perform better, but losing all 4 tabs supposedly cuts it from 1000W to 600W.
    BRANDON -- thornton, CO   3/8/2012
    Works great. Wiring was no more complicated than a typical "dumb" dimmer. It took a bit of trial and error to get it working in a three-way circuit with another SwitchLinc, but after about 30 minutes everything was working flawlessly. The LED's are a nice, tasteful touch and add to the high-end visual appeal of this unit. This high-wattage version gets fairly warm - you can't put this in a densely populated box without losing some of the 1000W capacity. Review the documentation carefully with regard to that issue.
