Essential Info

The MD-318 Remote Controllable Wire-In On/Off/Dimming Control Module was designed to operate a 300 watt load at 120 volts of alternating current (120VAC) for either incandescent or CFL bulbs. This receiver module features an On/Off or relay function as well as a dimming function which will only work with dimmable bulbs. To use the MD-318 simply wire the device in-line with the lighting fixture you wish to control. Once properly installed you will be able to wirelessly turn on and off, or dim and brighten lights powered by the switch from a variety of SkylinkHome transmitters. To achieve remote control over the MD-318 from a wireless transmitter, you must first program the switch to be a responder of that transmitter. The programming is a very simple process done with the set buttons located on the switch and on the transmitter. A maximum of 8 transmitters can be paired to one MD-318 remote controllable wire-in module. This allows you to add more wireless hand-held remote controls or motion sensors to your system for flexibility, security, and comfort.

    put the control module into a device box in the corner of a dropped ceiling to control recessed can lights. I will suggest this to other customers
    MICHAEL -- moose jaw, SK   3/21/2013
    Excellent product - easy to install and program.
    WAYNE -- white cloud, MI   1/3/2013
    installation went well but probably should be done by qualified personnel
    JIM -- st michael, MN   5/3/2012
    Works great, easy to program.
    ANDREW -- portland, OR   3/12/2012
    Works great, easy to install and gave me the option to control the pull string fiture in the dining room in my 1898 home with a wall switch and it made it possible to dim the lights. Paired with TB-318. The 300 Watt limit is lower than I'd like but with my current fixture wattage (5x60W) it works out okay. As long as you don't need more wattage than 300 it's great.
    CHRISTOPHER -- dennis, MA   1/27/2012
    Shipped fast Works great
    KENNETH -- bohemia, NY   12/29/2011
    Wired in four sets of lights at our church with plans to expand in the near future.
    SIDNEY -- west paris, ME   7/22/2011
    This and the TB-318 allowed us to control a ceiling fixture that was on a pull cord on/off without having to have a wall mounted switch hardwired.
