Essential Info

If you have a complete INSTEON network installed in your home to control lighting and appliances remotely, you're already enjoying the convenience of controlling multiple lights and appliances from a single location. With multiple control options, it can be difficult to decide between the beautiful elegance of an INSTEON KeypadLinc wall-mounted controller and the convenience of an INSTEON ControLinc Tabletop Controller. Get the full advantage of both with the INSTEON KeypadLinc with Tabletop Enclosure Kit. This set includes an INSTEON KeypadLinc Dimmer along with a Keypad Tabletop Enclosure, an attractive, portable enclosure that allows full use of a KeypadLinc 6- or 8-button keypad while allowing the freedom to place the plug-in controller in any room of your home.

    Easy Installation
    You don't need to be an electrician to install the INSTEON KeypadLinc in the Keypad Tabletop Enclosure. Installation takes under 10 minutes! Simply follow the included quick-start guide to connect each wire on your KeypadLinc to the corresponding wire on the included power cord. Wire nuts are included for ease of use. Plug the Keypad Tabletop Enclosure into any non-switched outlet. You'll be able to link the individual keypad buttons to lights or groups of lights in your home for remote control of lights and scenes at the press of a button. Once configured, this portable controller can be unplugged and moved anywhere in your home without losing its programming.

    Easily Upgrade to Custom-Etched Buttons
    You'll be able to personalize your KeypadLinc buttons at any time by purchasing a set of six or eight custom-etched buttons. If you already know you want to take advantage of this option, you can purchase the KeypadLinc with custom-etched buttons pre-installed in the Tabletop Enclosure (choose the six- or eight-button set).

    The Keypad Tabletop Enclosure is also available to be purchased separately. This set is also available in white; choose the color that best complements your décor.

    You can also easily change this 6-button KeypadLinc to an 8-button keypad using the Black 8 Button Change Kit for KeypadLinc.

    JAMES -- thomaston, CT   4/22/2013
    This is just a repackage of the wall multi-switch. I was sad to learn that SmartHome discontinued the larger tabletop Insteon remote...I liked that one much better.
    TIMOTHY -- fresno, CA   3/29/2013
    Easy install, easy programming with isy
    VIC -- colorado springs, CO   1/7/2013
    Black keys hard to see. Replaced some with white and used colored gels for easy id in the dark without needing reading glasses.
    VIC -- colorado springs, CO   12/6/2012
    Works as advertised.
    LYLE -- roswell, GA   11/27/2011
    Automated lamps, TV and ceiling fan control via KeypadLinc in guest bedroom. Guests are very impressed.
    GARY -- chandler, AZ   10/4/2010
    Nice for the bedside table top. OH, Of course you can not identify which button is which in the dark, so I used the premade WHITE buttons, all better now! Mostly Black, with white buttons looks ok.
    CHRIS -- santa rosa, CA   6/17/2009
    This small, stylish unit was easy to assemble and looks great on the nightstand. I wish the black keys let the light shine through the writing on the keys, but it wasn't a deal-breaker.
    STEVEN -- lucas, TX   1/18/2009
    Good quality. Nice looking.
    HOWARD -- san francisco, CA   10/4/2008
    The tabletop KeypadLinc is a brilliant solution. Compact, with more features than most dedicated controllers. A must have for an Insteon installation.
    JEFFREY -- brookfield, WI   9/20/2008
    One comment on black... the buttons won't be back lit because the black switchlinc face plates are opaque. Looks great with the lights on though. Clean, compact, and functional. Can't wait for the custom etched buttons.
    JEFFREY -- brookfield, WI   9/7/2008
    Clean and stylish. I like these table top enclosures much better than the ControLinc due to the illumination, compact package, and customizable engraved buttons. It would be nice to see a future generation of opaque custom etched buttons with illuminated text.
    TODD -- carrollton, TX   7/13/2008
    Great compact control. Be advised, the black KeypadLinc does not let any light from the leds through.
    Frank -- barrington, Rhode Island   6/28/2008
    We are very pleased with our keypadlinc + tabletop enclosure kit. We use it on our nightstand & have it programmed to turn on/off all the things we want once we get in bed. INSTEON has made our lives easier & saved us money too.
    HOWARD -- san francisco, CA   6/16/2008
    Awesome! Much better than the old ControlLinc products!
