  • What's Included
  • The latest INSTEON plug-in module, I/O Linc, lets you monitor and control any low voltage devices such as alarm sensors, electric door strikes, and contact closures as part of your INSTEON home automation network. With one dry-contact sensor input you can control many INSTEON devices throughout the house. Plus, use the built-in single-pole double-throw (SPDT) switch, connect any low voltage-powered device for continuous or momentary operation. Create your own remote-control door lock using an electric door strike and power supply or use a security sensor turn INSTEON controlled lights on or off. I/O Linc is also backward-compatible with X10.

    Required Accessories
    Sensor wire: 16 - 28 gauge wire fits, but 20 - 22 gauge recommended

    I/O Linc Kits Available:
    I/O Linc's flexible output relay can control many different types of low voltage devices, from pool valves to electric door strikes to garage doors due to its different relay modes. When controlling devices like pool valves, you will want the ability to leave it on for an extended period of time, giving it plenty of time to fill the pool. As it approaches the desired water level, then you can remotely turn it off. For devices like electric door strikes, set I/O Linc's output relay to momentary, allowing you open the front gate using a RemoteLinc or any other INSTEON controller. A third version of I/O Linc's momentary mode allows you to remotely press your garage door button with an INSTEON On command, but only if your garage is currently closed. This allows you to open your garage with On command and close it with an Off command. Because I/O Linc uses a garage door sensor to know whether the door is open or closed, it only controls the garage when it needs to.

    Controlling Two Separate Loads
    With the addition of a DPDT Relay Board, the I/O Linc is capable of switching two separate loads on and off together. In this configuration, the I/O Linc could control two different loads of varying voltages (i.e. one high voltage and one low voltage load) or two higher current loads (up to 7A @30VDC each).

    Certifications and Warranty
    All I/O Linc products are safety approved. The factory for SmartLabs Design Products is ISO9001 certified. Because of this passion for quality, Smarthome stands behind the entire I/O Linc line of products with a full 2-year warranty.

    This little device works great. I would buy more but they are pricey.

    Avoid Smarthome products like the plague. Smarthome/Insteon warranty WILL NOT BE honored unless purchase directly from them or apparently their own super-secret list of retailers. You'll only find out about this list if you request warranty service for a malfunctioning product when they refuse to honor the warranty. Their warranty is meaningless. This is certainly an extremely poor way to do business. DON'T WALK, RUN AWAY!!

    Order not complete after five weeks and after multiple calls and emails, Smarthome will not inform me as to why order cannot be completed, nor any information as to when I might see the remainder of the order (missing item required to use other items in the order).

    Works as advertised. However this is the second unit that I had to replace because of failure after the 2-year warrantly expires!

    Review of 2450

    I did have one go bad on me, but this is a great device that I use to open/close the garage door and make sure it's closed when I'm away. Also convenient when someone else needs in my house and I'm not around.

    Review of 2450

    There is a reverse trigger option but when you query the device you still get the native answer which is confusing to controllers and users. Fix that and it would get 5 stars.

    This is the third I/O Linc that I have installed in my home. They all work exactly as described in literature once I figured out how to program correctly.

    Easy to program with the hub or HL. Great device with lots of potential uses. Using a few of these to remotely control fireplace, garage door status & open/close, and to shut-off automatic sprinklers.
