  • What's Included
  • The Mini Remote is an easy-to-use wireless remote that allows you to control Insteon bulbs, dimmers, switches and plug-in or receptacle dimmers. Now you can raise and lower light levels for multiple lights from anywhere in your house. Mini Remote is wireless, making it incredibly versatile. Use it as a lightweight handheld remote; make it a tabletop control for your nightstand, counter or coffee table by attaching it to a tabletop stand (sold separately); turn on your house lights from the car by attaching it to a visor clip (sold separately); or mount it to the wall to create a wireless keypad in the perfect location - without having to rewire (wall mount bracket and wallplate sold separately). The Mini Remote is ultra-easy to install and operate, giving you the most flexibility for a truly smart home with Insteon.

    Mini Remote is powered by a rechargeable lithium battery. Based on average usage, expected battery life between a charge is 9-12 months. Recharge using any standard USB Type A to Micro-B cable (sold separately).

    Mini Remote can directly control RF Insteon devices such as:
    Insteon LED Bulb (Dual-Band)
    SwitchLinc 2-Wire (RF)
    SwitchLinc (Dual-Band)
    LampLinc (Dual-Band)
    OutletLinc Dimmer (Dual-Band)
    KeypadLinc (Dual-Band)
    Insteon Thermostat
    220V / 240V 30 Amp Load Controllers (Dual-Band)

    To control devices that are not RF-compatible, you'll need at least one dual-band device to convert the RF signal from the remote into power line signals.

    Also available in an 8-scene version for more control. Don't need that many buttons? Try the Mini Remote Switch.

    Required Accessories
    • USB Charging Cable is required to charge Mini Remote. With the cable you can charge by plugging the cable into a computer USB port or into a USB power adapter.
    • If the Insteon device you intend to control does not receive RF signals (i.e., power line only), you will need at least one dual-band Insteon device to convert the RF signals to power line signals.

    How it Works
    Tapping the right hand (ON) key turns your light (or scene) on and tapping the left hand (OFF) key turns your light (or scene) off; press and hold the ON button to brighten every light in the scene or press and hold the OFF button to dim every light in the scene. The LED status indicator blinks green for ON commands and red for OFF commands. The LED indicator will also let you know if a device did not acknowledge the command.

    Additional programming options allow Mini Remote to function as an 8-scene controller, making the right hand key control one scene and the left hand key control another. This can be set to alternate between ON and OFF for each press (toggle) or only send ON (non-toggle).

    More Benefits
    • Power switch for disabling buttons ("vacation" or "pocket" mode)

    • Stuck Button Mode - saves battery life by going to sleep if button stuck down

    • Beeper for setup ease

    • Compatible with most decorator wallplates (Wall Mount Bracket required)

    • Built-in battery charge LED indicator

    Too much for too little Review by tdhia
    Too much for too little

    My unit worked ok, but stopped taking a charge after about two years. The battery is not replaceable. They cost too much to be disposed of after two years.

    Unreliable Review by Newbully

    I bought two of these and use them with the ISY994i. Initially they worked for a few days and then lights failed to respond. Charging the remote did not help, I re-programmed them and then they work for a day or do and have to do it all over again. They are in a drawer right now and feel it was wasted money. The rest of my system works well with out any intervention.

    Review of 2342-232

    Works better than some reviews imply, though is temperamental to configure w/ my ISY994i (sometimes complains it doesn't respond despite it linking and working properly).

    Review of 2342-232

    Works well but it does not control a ceiling fan at the medium setting (but the iPhone ISY app does). We are using four of these and plan on getting another.

    Review of 2342-232

    This remote works as advertised. I'm using it in my home theater, to dim new track lighting. It could be improved by making it just a bit larger, with more easy-to-read keys perhaps with some use-by-feel depressions or other tacticle features, and a backlight. For my use, it would also be an improvement if the TAP feature could be disabled. To make fine adjustments to the light level, the PRESS AND HOLD has to be timed just right. If too short, it is interpreted as a TAP and the lights will go to full brightness, or off, depending on which way I'm adjusting. Sure be nice if a programmable feature was available to defeat that TAP setup. I was told by tech support that the only way to make fine adjustments is with the use of a smart phone or tablet and an app connected via an Insteon gateway. Seems a lot of hassle just for that.
