"Easy to program. Intuitive setup of scene lighting. Built-in dimmer controls one light, which can also be part of a scene."
Joerg -- Martinez, CAINSTEON KeypadLinc Dimmer - Keypad & Dimmer All In One!
Replace an existing light switch with KeypadLinc to remotely control lights and appliances from a single wall switch location, all without running new wires. The KeypadLinc has a built-in 600-watt dimmer that is controlled by the large top and bottom buttons. The 4 small buttons can be linked wirelessly to control other lights or appliances in other parts of the house. All buttons feature backlit status LEDs so you can see at a glance which lights have been left on (or off). Imagine turning your master bedroom light switch into a control station where, as you are going to bed, you can see that the kids left their bathroom light on and turn it off, check the status of the garage door
, dim down the plug-in lamps on either side of your bed or create an "Goodnight" scene that turns off key lights throughout your home. Install one by your front door and if you forgot to turn off your bedroom light on your way out in the morning, you could simply press the corresponding keypad button to turn it off without having to run all the way back to the bedroom.
Need to control more lights from this location? You can easily change this 6-button KeypadLinc to an 8-button keypad using the White 8 Button Change Kit for KeypadLinc
. You can also change colors when you redecorate using these kits, also available in Ivory
, and Gray
Each KeypadLinc button can perform up to four different functions, such as on, off, brighten, and dim. For the ultimate in elegance, custom laser-etched 4 small, 2 large
keypad button sets are available. Software configurable
Using INSTEON software such as HouseLinc
, you can control, program and manage settings for this and other other INSTEON devices in your home. You can even schedule timed events, receive email alerts when devices are activated and more. Learn more about HouseLinc.
A non-dimming version of this keypad is also available. The KeypadLinc Relay
is rated at up to 20-Amps and 1800 Watts (incandescent) and can be wired in either 120V (residential) or 277V (commercial) applications. It also features dual-band technology which allows it 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. Learn more

Easy To Install
INSTEON 6 Button Keypad Controller with On/Off Switch is easy to install and set up and yet so affordable, you'll be able to replace many of your switches with KeypadLinc. Just remove the old switch, reattach the line, load, and ground wires with the addition of the neutral wire using the included wire nuts, and you're done.
Scenes allow you to control multiple lights with one button. You can save and control up to five different individual lights, multi-light scenes, or even your whole home. Because KeypadLinc 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 press of one of the keypad buttons. These are elegant features usually found only in systems costing tens of thousands of dollars and requiring extensive rewiring of your home. All remotely controlled lights can ramp to your independently desired brightness levels at your chosen ramp rates, so one set of lights can dim slowly while another set turns off instantly, all controlled with one command from one button.
Monitor Other Devices
The buttons on INSTEON 6 Button Keypad Controller with On/Off Switch illuminate when ON signals are sent and when signals are detected from other INSTEON devices linked to KeypadLinc. This allows the KeypadLinc to monitor lights in other rooms, which is incredibly useful if you want to control lights that aren't easily seen from the location, like those in bedrooms, bathrooms, basements, garages, attics, etc.
The KeypadLinc gives you tremendous flexibility with controlling your lighting system. Other wall-mounted keypads only provide on/off control of all devices, however; KeypadLinc button can perform up to four different functions. Press a button once for ON; press again for OFF. Press and hold to brighten, press and hold again to dim. If you prefer, turn off the toggle feature to send the same command every time. This is a helpful feature when programming an "all on" command button to press when you get home or "all off" command button to press when you leave for the day.
Make it Portable
Mount this keypad in a Tabletop Enclosure, and you'll be able to plug it into any indoor outlet for portable remote control of your home's lights and appliances.
Create Multi-Way Circuits
KeypadLinc allows you to customize your lighting setup no matter how your house is wired. It's simple to create a 3-, 4-, or 5-way circuit. First replace all of the existing switches you want to include in the circuit with either a KeypadLinc, INSTEON SwitchLinc Dimmer, or a INSTEON SwitchLinc Relay (Non-Dimmable). The main controller must be connected to the standard wires, load, line, neutral, and ground. The secondary switches only need to be connected to line, neutral, and ground. No traveler wires are needed, so it is easy to place one of the switches wherever you need it. Cross-linking all of the companion switches to the master switch is the last step in the process.
INSTEON 6 Button Keypad 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. The KeypadLinc 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.
Similar keypads are much deeper than KeypadLinc. Thanks to its slim design, it makes installation easy, even in small junction boxes.
All KeypadLinc settings are stored in non-volatile memory and are not lost during power failures. Additionally, in the event of a power loss, the KeypadLinc will return to its last on/off state when power is restored.
