Essential Info

Tired of seeing lights left on in unoccupied rooms? Don't be! Start saving the planet and money on bills by putting your lights on countdown timers. KeypadLinc Countdown Timer automatically turns off its integrated dimmer as well as all other linked INSTEON devices after a preset amount of time. With up to 8 preset timer durations, you can turn your lights on for increments of 2 minutes, 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours, and 4 hours. Out of the box, KeypadLinc Countdown Timer has 7 timer buttons and an OFF button, so no matter who's using it, it's impossible to leave your lights on for longer than 2 hours! If you prefer more flexibility, the OFF button can easily be reconfigured as an ON/OFF or 4-hour timer button ("ON/OFF" and "4 hr" key caps included). KeypadLinc Countdown Timer is perfect for areas where lights normally only need to be left on for a short period of time, like the laundry room, garage, kitchen, mud room, bathrooms, closets, and anywhere else you can imagine.

Put Any INSTEON Device on a Countdown Timer
Stop deciding whether to leave the lights on all night or risk tripping over the bicycle on the way to car — again. Create an "away" scene that turns on your hallway, garage and driveway lights, then automatically turns them all off after you drive away. Unlike any other countdown timer on the market, KeypadLinc Countdown Timer can not only turn its connected lights off, but also any remote INSTEON device you want — automatically! By simply linking Countdown Timer to the lights or devices you want timed (which can be done in a couple of minutes), you can be sure they turn off after you leave. If you're leaving right away, use the 2 minute button; if you need some extra time to grab a few things and load the car, use the 10 minute button. No need to rush: KeypadLinc Countdown Timer adjusts to your schedule.

    MATT -- reston, VA   9/12/2013
    Works perfectly. Takes a bit to figure out exactly how, but can be programmed to trigger a timer when another insteon light is turned on, and the turn off multiple lights when the timer expires - great for our porch lights, which are on three different circuits but are great to have work as one set (with a timer).
    RICHARD -- citrus heights, CA   5/23/2013
    Installation was very easy. Synchronizing with the 3 switches was not too bad - thanks tech support! I like all of the different time variations which helps make this timer a great value.
    RALF -- tuscaloosa, AL   5/5/2013
    Working fine but even though I have expected more possibilties to control it from HouseLinc. The haptic is also a not that perfect. I click or something as a feedback would make it perferct
    DENNIS -- brookings, OR   12/31/2012
    Great product-very fast shipping
    MARTIN -- bedford, NH   12/29/2012
    Works as advertised. I wish Houselinc software could manage it.
    KERRY -- macon, GA   11/18/2012
    Since the Houselinc software program only allows lights to be turned on or off at specific times (i.e. sundown), but doesn't allow lights to be turned off after prescribed lengths of time, I was hoping the Keypadlinc Timer would allow me to make it so that various hall lights around the house after being turned on at their different locations would then automatically turn off after, say, 5 minutes, by linking them to the Keypadlinc Timer 5 minute button. That does not work, however. You really can only use this to have one select group of lights turn on when you push the Keypadlinc Timer button and then the light(s) turn off when the time is up. Still, I installed it in place of the garage light switch, so now I can hit the button for 2 minutes, get into the car in the well-lighted garage, and not worry about leaving the lights on while I'm away, so it's been good for that.
    JOERG -- martinez, CA   11/15/2012
    Good quality. Easy to install. Works both as a transmitter and as a responder.
    PATRICK -- portola valley, CA   7/18/2011
    Nice upgrade to fixed timer, with more useful features. Too bad it's not available in other colors.
    NED -- beaverton, OR   3/12/2011
    The package indicated the unused timers could be used by other switches. Maybe this is possible, but I haven't been able to use it they way I want. The price is at bit excessive for what it does.
    JOHN -- pittsburgh, PA   11/12/2010
    Great to auto shut off fans / lights and have Insteon control too!
    RON -- saint petersburg, FL   7/17/2010
    This item is working as advertised. Just make sure you have a neutral wire attached (in addition to the hot lead and ground wire).
    ANDY -- porter ranch, CA   5/6/2010
    Another awesome product.
    DALE -- chatsworth, CA   4/26/2010
    don't have to rely on someone remembering to turn off the hot water pump! This has made life easier, saving both electricity and water!
    MICHAEL -- sugar hill, GA   1/5/2010
    The backlight on the keypad is brighter than I like particularly in a bedroom. Practically lights up the whole room, so we turned the keypad lights off, which I'm not particularly happy about.
    NATHANIEL R. -- durham, CT   11/6/2009
    Great way to deal with a daugher who cannot seem to turn off the lights!
    EDUARDO -- chapel hill, NC   9/17/2009
    Works great. Installation was easy and fast. I never leave these lights on anymore. All aspect of the dimmer are configurable. It is much better than the old X10 switch it replaced.
    DAVID -- elkhart, KS   8/26/2009
    Nice! being used in a bathroom. possibilities are endless with able to set up a button to turn on lights in bath at night(dimmly) and then stay on as you exit as a night light.
    GEORGE -- midland, TX   8/22/2009
    Probably a neat gadget. Just be sure your switch has hot and neutral. My switch was only switching one leg, so there was no power for the timer. Had to send it back, or rewire.
    HAMID -- chicago, IL   8/10/2009
    This is a very handy timer but initially it didn't look like I can use since they advertised it as 3way but in actuality it was a 4way switch. Luckily I was installing it on a 4way gang box and had neutral coming which made this work. Other than that the installation was simple and the timer is really handy to use as a hallway switch. The backlit keyboard is very handy when it's dark and makes finding the light switch a breeze!
    MICHAEL -- new albany, IN   7/13/2009
    Another great insteon product. I use it for our bathroom fan. It turns it off automatically after set time period so no more wasted energy.
