This set includes an INSTEON KeypadLinc Dimmer along with a Keypad Tabletop Enclosure, an attractive, portable enclosure that allows full use of a KeypadLinc while allowing the freedom to place the plug-in controller in any room of your home.

    Personalizing Laser-Etched Keypad Buttons
    Please follow these instructions to order your Custom Keypad Buttons:

    1. After submitting your order, follow the link at the top of the "thank you" page to go to the Customization Form.

    2. After completing this form, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with your customization order details for your records.

    3. Your custom buttons will be created and will arrive along with your KeypadLinc Dimmer via United States Postal Service within 10 to 14 business days.

    4. Please note: Due to the nature of the customization of each product, all sales are final. Returns will only be accepted due to an error on the part of Smarthome.

    Customization Process Explained: Laser etching your custom labels onto the Custom Keypad Buttons requires a careful, detailed process to ensure your satisfaction. Buttons are secured on a template and placed into our laser etcher. Your designated text is copied directly from the invoice and inputted manually into the computer, and the laser then etches your buttons with your selected text. The template is removed from the laser etcher, and the buttons are prepped, painted, and set to dry. The buttons are polished to a high shine after any excess paint is removed. All Custom Keypad Buttons go through a careful quality-control process before the buttons are packaged and shipped to your home.

    When placing your order, please note:

  • Etching space on small buttons is limited to 7 characters per line, with a maximum of 2 lines per button
  • Etching space on large buttons is limited to 14 characters per line, with a maximum of 2 lines per button
  • You will select black or white buttons on the order form; please note that the tabletop enclosure will match the button color* you select

    This set is also available in an 8-button version.

    * Please note that at this time Black buttons completely block the light from the LED indicators. It is recommended that you use this color only in locations where the lights/appliances you are controlling are visible from the controlling keypad.

    Each button is laser-etched with your detailed room description. Smarthome is unable to accept returns on special-order items. For more information, please see our return policy.

    Easy Setup
    The INSTEON KeypadLinc with Custom-Etched Buttons will arrive fully installed in the Tabletop Enclosure. Plug the 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.

    The Keypad Tabletop Enclosure is also available to be purchased separately.
