  • Replace an existing light switch with Keypad Dimmer to remotely control lights and appliances from a single wall switch location, all without running new wires. The Keypad Dimmer has a built-in 600-watt dimmer that is controlled by the top left button. The 7 other buttons can be linked wirelessly to control other lights or appliances in other parts of the house. All buttons feature backlit status LEDs so you can see at a glance which lights have been left on (or off).

    Imagine turning your master bedroom light switch into a control station where, as you are going to bed, you can see that the kids left their bathroom light on and turn it off, check the status of the garage door, dim down the lamps on either side of your bed or create an "Goodnight" scene that turns off lights throughout your home.

    Install one by your front door and if you forgot to turn off your bedroom light on your way out in the morning, you could simply press the corresponding keypad button to turn it off without having to run all the way back to the bedroom.

    Some devices to control from the keypad include INSTEON LED Bulb, plug-in modules, wall switches, thermostats and even low-voltage control.

    The Keypad Dimmer installs like a traditional wall switch with the exception of requiring a connection to neutral which is available in most homes (If you are unsure if you have a neutral, see How to check if i have a neutral wire?).

    Keypad Dimmer is also available in Ivory, Almond, Light Almond, Black, Brown, and Gray.

    If you're looking for a simpler keypad, consider using INSTEON Keypad Dimmer Switch (Dual-Band), 6-Button.

    For an On/Off-only version of Keypad, try Keypad Switch - INSTEON 6-Button Scene Control Keypad with On/Off Switch.

    Easy To Install
    The Keypad Dimmer is easy to install and set up and yet so affordable, you'll be able to replace many of your switches with Keypad Dimmers. Just remove the old switch, reattach the line, load, and ground wires with the addition of the neutral wire using the included wire nuts, and you're done.

    Scene Lighting
    Scenes allow you to control multiple lights with one button. You can save and control up to eight different individual lights, multi-light scenes, or even your whole home. Because the Keypad Dimmer can be a member of more than 400 scenes (i.e. "Movie Time," "Party," "Romance," etc.), you'll be able to launch various lighting scenarios with a press of one of the keypad buttons. These are elegant features usually found only in systems costing tens of thousands of dollars and requiring extensive rewiring of your home. All member lights can ramp to your independently desired brightness levels at your chosen ramp rates, so one set of lights can dim slowly while another set turns off instantly, all controlled with one command from one button.

    Monitor Other Devices
    The buttons on the INSTEON Keypad Dimmer illuminate when on signals are sent and when signals are detected from other linked INSTEON devices. This allows monitoring of lights in other rooms, which is incredibly useful if you want to control lights that aren't easily seen from the location, like those in bedrooms, bathrooms, basements, garages, attics, etc.

    Flexible Setup
    The Keypad gives you tremendous flexibility with controlling your lighting system. Other wall-mounted keypads only provide on/off control, each KeypadLinc button can perform up to four different functions. Press a button once for ON; press again for OFF. Press and hold to brighten, press and hold again to dim. If you prefer, turn off the toggle feature to send the same command every time. This is a helpful feature when programming an "all on" command button to press when you get home or "all off" command button to press when you leave for the day.

    Brightness Levels
    Adjust the brightness level of the controlled light locally by pressing and holding the top or bottom button. This is especially helpful when you want to create a theatrical experience when watching your favorite movies. You can also adjust and control the brightness levels of linked devices by pressing any of the programmed buttons to send signals to brighten or dim an out-of-the-way light. You can link any of the Keypad Dimmer buttons to other keypads so when the light that is being controlled by both of the linked buttons, it will updated the on/off status that device and show on the Keypad button. That way, you won't even have to leave the comfort of your chaise lounge to see the status of the controlled light. When you turn on the INSTEON Keypad 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% increments for ultimate flexibility. Each button has an elegant white LED that indicates the current on/off status of the lights being controlled. To match your room's decor, a 4-Color KeypadLinc LED Kit is available with four colors: red, blue, amber, and green.

    Adjustable Ramp Rate
    You can also adjust the speed at which the controlled light turns on or off, known as the ramp rate. For example, you may want the light in the stairwell to turn on instantly so you can see where you're walking. Alternatively, you may want the light in the master bathroom to ramp up in a soft, gentle fashion so you're not blinded in the middle of the night. The ramp rate is adjustable between 0.1 seconds and 9 seconds if programmed locally. The ramp rate can extend up to 8 minutes (for a simulated sunrise or sunset) if programmed remotely. This is a great addition to your morning alarm, slowly turning the light on to help you wake up. If you have programmed a slow ramp rate and want to make the light come on instantly, simply double tap the top button. To turn the light off quickly, double tap the bottom button.

    Create Multi-Way Circuits
    The INSTEON KeypadLinc 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 circuit. First replace all of the existing switches you want to include in the circuit with either a Keypad Dimmer, INSTEON SwitchLinc Dimmer, or a INSTEON SwitchLinc On/Off (Non-Dimmable). The main dimmer must be connected to the standard wires, load, line, neutral, and ground. The secondary switches only need to be connected to line, neutral, and ground. No traveler wires are needed, so it is easy to place one of the switches wherever you need it. Cross-linking all of the companion dimmers to the master dimmer is the last step in the process. Note: Any time the Keypad Dimmer is placed directly adjacent to one another or any other electronic dimming switch, you must subtract 200 watts of capacity from each dimmer. If three dimmers are adjacent to one another, then 400 watts must be subtracted from the capacity of the center dimmer.

    Reliability Review by tonan

    This switch only lasted 3 years. Have a big investment in X10/Insteon so no real choice but to purchase another. I've also had Its predecessors 12064 (x10 only) and those were equally unreliable. These are just too darn expensive to have to be replaced with such regularity.

    Anthony Review by Anthony

    I have mine for about a year now and so far so good. My wife loves them you can program buttons to control what ever you have hooked up to insteon hub very easy to install. I can shut all my kids bedroom lights off from down stairs. Saves a lot of going up and down stairs I think it's made us a little lazy. I didn't give it 5 stars because I want to see how long it lasts for

    Durability Review by Steve

    My 2 year old switch has failed and I am ordering a replacement. I notice others with similar issues. It functions well, and I have several devices, so I feel obligated to maintain my system, BUT its a hassle and expensive to not get decent life. I notice they are making improvements on many fronts, so I'm hoping as they make improvements, they address the durability issue as well.

    Review of 2334-222

    Works OK, but I actually liked the old Smarthome devices better. They had a few more features that I found useful, like choosing which button controls the integrated responder. Also, the X10 side of the Insteon devices I've installed so far is less good at X10 than the old Smarthome devices are.

    Works well in a tabletop enclosure as a kind of master control for common scenes and programs.

    Review of 2334-222

    Isn't very durable. I've gone thru 2 of them: one was under warranty and the other lasted about 3 years. Kind of expensive to replace on a regular basis

    Review of 2334-222

    WARNING: These items appears to have a design flaw at least some lots. I purchased 4 of these and in less than 5 years of use, they are all broken, eventually creating a periodic buzz sound. It seems like the power circuit inside is the problem it powers up and powers down continuously. Same for all 4 of these I purchased, thus I lean towards this being a design flaw due to derating considerations, perhaps some capacitor worn out too quickly.

    Other than this unfortunate problem, it is a nice switch I would have given it 5 if it was durable. Lifetime is way too short for a product like this that becomes part of your house!!!
