COMPARE CHART

INSTEON® Lamp & Appliance controllers / Wall Switches


Use this comparison chart to help you decide which lamp and appliance controller best fits your application. If the lamp you want to control is using incandescent or halogen bulbs you’ll want to take advantage of their ability to be dimmed thus saving energy and reducing your electric bill. If you use low power consuming bulbs such as CFL or LED light bulbs you’ll want one of the relay (on/off) controllers. For any appliance control (fan, space heater, etc) you’ll also want to select the relay versions.

1. Hear buzzing sounds coming from an incandescent light bulb when using a dimmer? Try using a rough service bulb typically found at your local home improvement store.
2. If you decide to use a dimmer with dimmable CFLs remember that some of them typically dim in larger increments (not a smooth transition between levels).
3. If you are using LED lights that are very low wattage, you may notice that the LEDs do not turn off completely when plugged into a relay plug-in controller. In this case, you’ll need to add to the load with more LEDs or higher wattage bulbs - generally higher than 5 watts
