Essential Info

The IRLinc - INSTEON Home Theater Lighting Control Kit has everything you need to create a wireless, automated lighting system in your home theater using your existing universal remote. The kit includes two SwitchLinc Dimmers to replace two existing light switches, a KeypadLinc Dimmer which also replaces an existing switch and has enough buttons to allow control of up to four other INSTEON devices or scenes, and two Dual-Band LampLinc Dimmers to control a pair of lamps; the LampLincs also double as a pair of Access Points - relaying RF and powerline signals to other INSTEON-compatible devices in the home. But the real beauty of this kit is the IRLinc Receiver, which is compatible with IR codes found in most universal remotes and is easy to program as other INSTEON devices, using simple Plug-n-Tap setup. Once your devices are installed and programmed, you can use your existing universal remote as you normally would to control home theater equipment such as your TV, stereo and cable/satellite TV. However, you can also use that same remote to turn your lights on or off, dim your lights up and down, or create specialized lighting scenes for watching TV or movies. If you're one of those people who want one remote for everything, IRLinc is a perfect fit. Keep the clutter off your coffee table by combining your home theater and lighting remotes into one.

    Easy Setup
    The kit can be set up in minutes to control lighting in your home theater. Following the included instructions, simply plug in the LampLincs Dimmers and plug in a lamp to each LampLinc, and replace your existing light switches with the new INSTEON KeypadLinc Dimmer and SwitchLinc Dimmer switches. The On and Off buttons on the KeypadLinc will control the light on the light switch you are replacing. Each of the other buttons can be set up to control the other lights which the SwitchLinc switches control, either individually or at the same time. Plug in the IRLinc and place the receiver where you would normally point your universal remote - IRLinc's talk-back LED allows you to identify easily which IR codes are compatible.

    How it Works
    KeypadLinc a sends signals over existing power lines to a LampLinc which then communicates that same signal via radio frequency (RF) to a second LampLinc (coupling your electrical phases). Both LampLincs distribute the original signal to each other, the SwitchLinc On/Off switches, the KeypadLinc and any other INSTEON device in your home. IRLinc receives signals from your universal remote, and they are distributed in exactly the same way.

    Expandability
    You can expand on this kit to control your entire home by adding INSTEON dimmers and switches, wire-in / outlet modules, plug-in modules, low-voltage input / output control, and HVAC control to automate lighting and appliances, control the garage door, adjust the temperature and much more. Install HouseLinc 2 - INSTEON Desktop Software on your computer to schedule INSTEON-compatible devices to turn on or off at any specific time or even at sunrise and sunset. Or try SmartLinc - INSTEON Central Controller, which can be linked to any web-enabled mobile device through Wi-Fi and cellular communication, allowing you to control or create timers for INSTEON devices or scenes from inside your home, in the backyard, at work, in the car or on vacation halfway around the world!

    Please Note: If you don't want to use your existing universal remote, you can use the included credit card sized wireless remote or try one of our home theater remotes.

    Can anyone post on how to dim lights once you pause a movie from a harmony 1100
    JAMES -- durham, NC   5/29/2011
    Works great, allows me to control lots of devices. I wish all the buttons worked with my Logitech Harmony, but most seem to work automatically. Happy with the purchase.
    JOHN -- webster, NY   1/13/2011
    This is an awsome package. Very little trouble setting it up. I did have a couple of questions, I called support and they fixed me up in minutes. I can control all my lights from my Harmony one remote and even press a custom button for pause that brings my lights up to 80% and Play that takes them back down to 30%. This is great technology.

    Using this with a Logitech Harmony 1100 remote and it works very well! All at a fraction of the cost of Lutron/Crestron systems I have setup before. Just setup your remote to control an NEC VCR, or learn the IR from the included credit card remote. Missing from the documentation is that you can set discrete on or off commands (instead of toggle) by pressing the set button once or twice during learning process. Once for discrete on, twice for discrete off. This is done right after pressing the universal remote button you are programming. ***SMARTHOME RESPONSE: Thanks for catching that oversight, Kent! We've updated the documentation to include this information***

    This is a nice set. I bought this set to use with my Logitech remote so I can't comment on the remote that came with the kit. Using my Logitech remote, I am able to pick various lighting scenes to control the lights in our TV Room. My wife loves the fact that she can control everything using one remote.
