  • Turn Any Wall Switch Into an Insteon Remote Controllable Dimmer

    Micro Dimmer Module keeps your existing antique, toggle or decorative wall switches while adding the customizable, dimmable remote control functionality of a Dimmer Wall Switch.




    Remote Control

    Sometimes the couch is just too comfy and that wall switch is just too far away. Grab your smartphone and brighten and dim your switch to your heart's content.

    Schedules

    Automatically turn your porch lights on at dusk. Wake up to a gentle pseudo-sunrise at 7AM. You can schedule individual wall switches or full groups of switches for particular hours and days of the week.

    Ramp Rate & On Level

    With a custom Ramp Rate, you get to set how quickly (or slowly) your lights brighten and dim - anywhere from instantly to 8 minutes. With On Level, you also get to specify how bright your lights are when you tap the paddle, from 1% to 100%.

    Scenes

    With the Insteon Hub, scenes really take on a new level. Program one switch to turn off all of the downstairs lights. Configure another to turn on Movie Mode. And because you can schedule scenes, you can give your home that "lived in" look even when you're away.






    Remote control with Insteon sensors.

    Your Insteon Micro Modules can do so much more when given access to the family of Insteon sensors. With a few taps of the set button or a moment's time with your smartphone, you can configure sensors throughout your home to automatically turn on (or off) the lights based on a variety of different actions.

     

    Doors

    There are some rooms in your home that, no matter what time of day, you always end up turning on the lights: Pantries, closets, hallways, etc. With an Insteon Micro Module and an Open/Close Sensor (or Hidden Door Sensor), you will never need to turn the light on again. And better yet, you'll never need to remember to turn it off.

    Motion & Occupancy

    Do you play whack-a-mole all day, turning off the lights in rooms that your significant other - or children - have habitually left on? Turn every Insteon Micro Module into an occupancy-sensing switch with an Insteon Motion Sensor. And with Insteon, your Motion Sensor can control multiple Micro Modules simultaneously for large rooms or long hallways.

    Smoke

    No one wants to think about the potential for a disaster, but if one were to happen, make your escape as safe as possible by automatically turning on lights to an escape path when Smoke Bridge detects smoke, fire or carbon monoxide from a linked First Alert OneLink detector.

    Learn More

    Garage Door

    It's no only cool, it's handy too. Whenever you open your garage door, turn on the overhead lights for easier entry and exit from your vehicle. And while you're at it, turn the outside sconces and walkway lights on, too for that extra bit of illuminated peace-of-mind when you come home late at night.

    Beware of the four pack Review by Kolbysaurus
    Beware of the four pack
    Rating

    I added a 4 pack of these to my cart for $100 after I had paid for the order I noticed that the price had changed to $199.

    One failed instantly. The others work perfectly, no flickering even on very low dimmer setting.

    Smarthome response: Sorry for the confusion in the cart. This may have been that the item was added to the cart one day but then checking out happened after the sale had ended. Either way, next time let us know and we'll honor (or fix) the issue.

    Thought I had a use for it, but turned out i can't install it in a box behind a switch. I'll have to wait to see if i can get it in a junction box.

    So far it works well. It was a bit difficult to put in the box as I put it behind an outlet. I had to go and get a larger 1 gang box to make it all fit. Overall I am impressed.

    These are the perfect choice if you want to control an outside light that is remote from your switch. This item fits nicely inside the box. The sense wires made me nervous when working with them. This item makes a standard switch a three way switch. Meaning if the light switch is and a signal is sent to turn on the light the light comes on. To turn off locally you flip the switch to the up position, and the light goes off.

    I'm using 2 of these paired with a 6 button KPL dimmer to control lighting in my media room. This lets me control the lights in three groups to create different fade/dim scenes, or control has one entire group. Works awesome!

    Overall a great product. I'm using with a double toggle Decora switch in a single-gang box to control one of two loads. It was a pretty tight fit as the switch itself was larger than most. It did, however, make this installation possible since I was unable to install a two-gang box yet needed Insteon control of one of the two devices.

    Works great. I used a couple of these for devices that I didn't need an actual dimmer switch. The devices are small, but are still a bit of a squeeze when installing in place of a switch in a box with other wiring in it.
