You can adjust the brightness level of the controlled lamp by pressing and holding the on or off button of your INSTEON controller. This is especially helpful when you want to create a theatrical experience when watching your favorite movie. You can also adjust the brightness remotely by sending signals from the controller to brighten or dim the light. You won't even have to leave the comfort of your chaise lounge to dim the light: Your tabletop ControLinc can be placed within arm's reach and plugged into any outlet. When you turn on the ICON Lamp Dimmer, it automatically comes on to full brightness. Setting the preset on level will make the dimmer stop at your preferred choice of 32 brightness levels. With software you can control brightness levels in 1 percent increments for ultimate flexibility. This is a great feature for your bedroom to set the mood.
Create Multi-Way Circuits
The ICON Lamp Dimmer allows you to customize your lighting setup no matter how your house is wired. It's simple to create a 3-, 4-, or 5-way controlled lamp. First plug the lamp you want to include in the circuit into the dimmer, then plug in the ICON Lamp Dimmer into an open outlet. Link the dimmer to all the INSTEON-compatible wall switches and ControLinc Tabletop Controllers that you want to control the dimmer for a flexible, fully functional multi-way controlled lamp.
Scenes allow you to control multiple lights, rooms or even the whole home with a single command. Because the ICON Lamp Dimmer can be a member of 30 scenes (i.e. "Movie Time," "Party," "Romance," etc.), you'll be able to launch various lighting scenarios with a single button press on your INSTEON controller, so one set of lamps turn on to a 73 percent brightness level, while another set turns on to a 27 percent brightness level, all controlled with one command from one controller. If you want to control multiple scenes from one controller, try the KeypadLinc Dimmer.

The ICON Lamp Dimmer is fully INSTEON compatible and X10 ready. Homeowners with existing X10 networks can easily migrate to an INSTEON network without having to discard all their existing X10 devices. X10 ready means that it can respond to X10 commands from an X10 controller. Please note that INSTEON devices repeat INSTEON signals but not X10. The ICON Lamp Dimmer is not X10 scene compatible.
All ICON Lamp Dimmer settings are stored in non-volatile memory and are not lost during power failures. Additionally, in the event of a power loss, the ICON Lamp Dimmer will return to its last brightness level when power is restored.
