- What's Included
Ceiling Fan Speed and Light Control All in One
Designed to easily incorporate both fan speed and light control within your Insteon network. It is a dual-load responder simultaneously acting as a light fixture dimmer plus a 4 speed fan controller (Off, Low, Medium & High).
Control the fan speed or lighting of your ceiling fan wirelessly from any Insteon controller, be it a handheld remote, wall keypad, or smart phone and tablet.
Tie it in with a computer controller that can trigger all the fans in the house to turn on (at a predetermined speed) to help circulate the air, reducing costs associated with running your air conditioner.
How It Works
FanLinc is compatible with most ceiling fans and installs inside the fan cowling between the fan and incoming power. You'll want to make sure you have access to both the fan and (if your fan has a lighting kit attached) the light control wires.
Before finalizing your FanLinc installation you'll want to link it to your selected controllers. Because you don't want to be removing your ceiling fan every time you want to add or remove links, we recommend using software such as HouseLinc to manage all of this from your computer.
For a truly wireless solution use a handheld 8-scene Mini Remote to control the ceiling fan from the couch, bedside or mount it anywhere on the wall using a wall mount bracket. Links between Mini Remote and FanLinc can be made manually however, software configuration recommended.
For a more permanent solution, go with an in-wall 6-button KeypadLinc. KeypadLinc replaces any existing wall switch and provides wireless communications to the FanLinc. Links between KeypadLinc and FanLinc can be made manually however, software configuration recommended. pre-labeled FanLinc buttons or Custom-etched keys are sold separately.
Compatible with ceiling fans with an AC motor.
Ceiling fans with DC-motored and built-in remote
control motors are not compatible.

- Should be called RMAlinc Review by Dan
Should be called RMAlinc
I've had 3 failures since first buying these about 3 mo ago.
First one lasted almost 1mo and then high speed would only run at around the speed of low, luckily I had one that hadn't installed in another fan yet so I could swap the bad one out for RMA. Unfortunately I hadn't figured out the replace feature in ISY so it was a double huge pain to swap out.
The day that the replacement for the RMA was delivered I find that the exact same thing is wrong with fanlinc I had just put in so I swap it out again and this time I figured out the trick for the replace feature in ISY so it was only a huge pain to swap out.
Now first thing in the morning just 2 days after they've received the last RMA but have yet sent me a replacement I find that low speed doesn't work.
It's a shame there still isn't much choice for fan controllers, aside from the ones that aren't compatible with home-automation the fanlinc is the only one I'm aware of that has fan and light control in one unit so all it was lacking was a reverse function.
Since really like my Insteon 6 keypad I also have on my fan, I guess I'm going to have try and fit a GE z-wave wall switch and a micro dimmer into my fan canopy unless I can find a better solution.

- So far so good...kind of.... Review by Joseph
So far so good...kind of....
So I have two of these currently installed in my house, and a third one at my father's house. The first one was installed almost 3 years ago, it will be three years December 2016. That one is still working great, the second one which is coming up on two years in October is malfunctioning high and low speeds work fin but the medium setting doesn't work at all. And as for the one at my fathers house its coming up on a year and half installed and so far no problems there either.
So I guess two out of three isn't horrible but for the $60-80 (depending on sales) price tag for each one I expect this thing to work flawlessly for at least 5 years realistically more like at least 10 years since this is an integral part of my home's wiring not just an appliance, or a device this is more structural most people aren't changing light switches and stuff every 3-5 years, rarely do homeowners need to change or do change outlets and light switches because they just work and rarely break.
Secondly why isn't there a version for just fan control? And why not a light switch/keypad style fanlinc. I know that this all in one light and fan motor control is really awesome if you don't have the extra wire leading to the fan for independent control of fan and light. But in those situations when there is the extra wire the light control is just not needed and is really a safety hazard if its not properly capped off because the light (mainly dimming) responds so much better from the keypad when its directly controlled by the keypad. Secondly if you do use the fanlinc for the light control then the 6 button keypad doesn't hook up to anything and directly control anything since the light that was hooked up to that light switch is now hooked up to the fanlinc. And finally if there's was a fanlinc keypad option that would really be the best, the current 6 button keypad just needs a second wire on it for the fan then when the dam thing does finally break I don't have to get out a ladder and drop my fan to find out if it was the fanlinc and then replace it, the keypad is much easier to service. Especially like at my dad's where the fan is 15 feet in the air, (but there I was smart and but a box in the basement with the fanlinc inside of it and then wired that up to the fan in the ceiling).
So If I didn't have one fail in less than three years it would have been at least a 4 star maybe a 5 star, Its still really the best option for fan control for home automation / smarthome /whatever you want to call it... I still have not found another product out there that can so easily control the fan and the light which is a must in an older homes. I just wish there was a keypad version instead of in the fan, I'm already replacing the keypad so I have fancy fan off,low,med,high buttons and light dimmer so why not make it that same keypad., at the very least there should be a no light version just fan control.

- Failed 1 year out of warranty Review by John
Failed 1 year out of warranty
I have been using insteon since 2007 or 2008.
This item worked great, until the high speed setting started making a TRULY HORRIBLE SOUND in the motor last week, that woke me up, and sent the cat running for the closet. I stopped it, and it wasn't functional after that. Was installed Dec. 7, 2012. What if I hadn't been home to stop it? Would I have come home to a smoldering pile of ash?
The the previous (remote only, wireless controller from the fan manufacturer) had been in use since 2002 with no problems, and I will be re-installing it tomorrow, and it cost less, but I wanted an insteon integrated solution for the fan and the light in the ceiling fan.
Given I am seeing a nearly 80% fail rate on insteon dimmers, usually 1 or 2 years out of warranty 3-4 years of service), I am a having a hard time not feeling like I am being suckered. A 3-4 year service life is totally unacceptable for the costs of these products. I am having a very hard time shelling out another $79 for something that should either still be working, or under a warranty that really says they back their product for the long haul, like people who make things that are fixtures, designed for permanent installation in a house, usually do. Am I just supposed to replace $2500 worth of insteon dimmers, some of which are in-line and in hard to get to J-boxes every 3-4 years?
I have had a plug-in access point (#2443) catch fire, and drip it's melting plastic body onto brand new carpet. Out of warranty, so sorry. Why don't you spend $49 dollars on a new one so it can have a melt-down too?
That seems to be the solution Insteon wants. I am finding it very hard to spend more money on something that there is absolutely no indication is durable, and now I am questioning the safety of the products. One device going nuclear is a fluke, an 80% failure rate is more than a trend. I have only a few (I think 5) dimmers left that haven't self-destructed, just out of warranty of course. I not getting the warm fuzzies, I need from smarthome to consider dropping anymore cash on insteon, or through smarthome.
I am getting no relief from smarthome, they seem to support their product only as far as the warranty, when quite frankly their warranty sucks for something that becomes a part of your house, that is always powered on, and you expect it to last. I think I am done with Insteon, and need to start thinking about what I am going to replace the rest of it with.

- Works great Review by MilesBFree
Installed 2 of these including new fans in under an hour. Works exactly as expected.
Tempted to ding it a starfor lack of reverse in the app since the remotes that came with the fans and the old control modules that these replaced came with reverse, But I don't think I will ever actually reverse anyway.

- Bought 5 but won’t work inside Stainless Steel Hunter Ceiling Fan Review by Marc
Bought 5 but won’t work inside Stainless Steel Hunter Ceiling Fan
I bought these because I’ve wanted for some time to have my five ceiling fans integrated into my Indo home automation software. Up to this point, I’ve had mostly Z-Wave and hadn’t found any ceiling fan controllers until I saw these. So, I took the plunge.
The controller works very well as long as the enclosure is open. It synced very easily with Indigo and the light and fan operated flawlessly.
However, every time I closed up the ceiling fan mount, the controller stopped working (both Fan and Light did not function). I cycled the power and restarted Indigo and even deleted and added the ceiling fan device twice. However, every single time it worked flawlessly with the mount open but as soon as the mount was closed the controller couldn’t find the ceiling fan device (and yes the current was still live since the red off LED’s continued to be illuminated).
I’m on hold now with SmartHome (for over 25 minutes currently) to return them.
I did notice that the Hunter wireless controller did have an antenna but the INSTEON fan controller doesn’t. Maybe this has something to do with the inability to function inside the metal enclosure. The Hunter wireless controller works fine inside this same metal mount!

- Does not fit Review by Mark
Does not fit
I have 5 fans in my house, and this device did not fit in any of them! Why is the box so big??? This isn't the 1980's. We have cameras that can feed video to a remote device that are the size of a shirt button.
I can't see why this should be any bigger than a few credit cards stacked up. I had to break a few brackets in the ceiling fan to shove it in. The canopy can't touch the ceiling (small gap) because this thing is so big. Luckily its on a vaulted ceiling so it isn't that noticeable.
PLEASE make these 30% smaller!

- Small and easy to install Review by Mark
Small and easy to install
Fanlinc was easy to install into the cowling of the fan in my boys' room. After making all the connections, I tucked it into the top of the fan's ball-joint housing and put the covering back on. Works perfectly. I complimented it with a 6-button KeypadLinc for seamless integration.

Review of 2475F
It would be better if you could use mutliple click from one remote button to run through the speeds and then off. It looks to me like you have to use a different button for each speed.

Great way to remotely control a fan. The speeds though cannot be changed and sometimes the top end speed is not the same

Review of 2475F
Works well, only problem is that the dimmer unlike the other Insteon dimmers does not appear to be compatible with LED lamps.
