  • Adding remote control to wired lights usually means replacing switches, not any more. With INSTEON's new dual-band Micro On/Off Module, you can keep your antique, toggle or decorative wall switches while adding the same remote control functionality of SwitchLinc.

    This compact module installs behind your existing switch, giving it full INSTEON automation while retaining local control at the switch by way of sense wires. Connect the sense wires to any style wall switch to match any type of designer theme (antique, push-button, metal, etc.) Micro On/Off is so tiny that it can be installed as an in-line module within a fixture box, providing remote control without having to run wires to a wall switch.

    INSTEON also offers a Micro Dimmer Module and a Micro Open/Close Module.

    INSTEON Micro On/Off is compatible with latching, single momentary and dual momentary switches. By default, it comes programmed for latching switches such as paddles and toggles; it is easily configured for single and dual momentary switches with a simple reprogramming procedure during installation.

    Due to its hidden nature, we highly recommend using a home management controller (such as HouseLinc) or the free INSTEON app with INSTEON Hub to manage Micro Open/Close.

    Working as expected as in an HVAC system Review by Luke
    Working as expected as in an HVAC system

    I am using this to control an HVAC booster fan along with a wireless thermostat. The system works well.

    - Small
    - LED makes troubleshooting easy

    Other thoughts:
    - Be careful when using this with the HouseLinc since HouseLinc tends to revert some of the settings (like switching the device back into three-way mode)

    No bueno Review by spatrick
    No bueno

    Unfortunately the 'Add remote control to virtually any switch or outlet' didn't hold true to 2 wire installations. Finding out it will not work in my case and no option to get the same deal on a 4 pack for the switch that would work (even though same unit price). Returning...

    Awesome Review by Joe

    Our rear porch light was separate from our Front porch light and lights next to garage doors. Front lights on a 3 way with a switch inside garage. I always thought why didn't they use a four way switch to control all lights. We built a detached garage and I had those light on a timer. After reading reviews I decided to take the plunge. I wanted to keep the toggle switches so I used the Micro Modules. The first switch I hooked up was rear door to garage. They would not link. I called tech support and was told the sub panel and brick wall must be blocking both signals. Luckily I had a extra conduit buried that still had the wires I used to get temporary power to garage while building it. I ran that to a junction box inside detached garage. I eliminated the switch inside detached garage door and used the Micro module as the switch. Never used a switch before anyway. I can always add a remote later. Wow it worked. I must have turned lights on and off a dozen times and giggled every time.
    Ok, now onto the three way at front porch and inside garage doors. I opened the cover at front door. Wow what's the extra red wire. I checked box inside garage and it had the white wire with black tape on it along with red. That made sense, but the extra red inside at front door had me confused. I decided to call an electrician. He never called back. So after a night of restless sleep I looked deeper into box and saw a black capped wire?? Ahh, the red must be hot going to outlet on porch. I made white wire common and eliminated a traveler to the other switch just as in video. Hooked both Micro modules and linked all to be transponder and receivers. This is AWESOME. I can now control all my outdoor lights from one switch.
    BTW I tested another Micro module in in the garage and now that one is working it links even with the sub panel.

    Great multi purpose device Review by Patrick
    Great multi purpose device

    I just installed this great little device in my over head range. This is being used as part of my HVAC solution which is being controlled by my ISY-994.

    When the temperature gets too hot the controller activates the Micro On/Off module to come on for a specified duration. It has been working great for several months and I look forward to integrating more of these in the future.

    PRO'S: Small & compact, versatile, dual band, sense wire.

    CON'S: Sense wires are too thin and needs to be upgraded. Device needs mounting tabs / ears. Price, this device should really be in the $25.XX range.

    Review of 2443-222

    Work as expected. Fit behind two outlets nicely for my backyard motion lighting project. I have 4 RAB Stealth motion lights connected in series. The On/Off module is always on allowing the motions to work as intended. Where the On/Off comes into play is when I want to keep the lights on manually by turning on my patio Switchlinc switch. That runs a program to turn the On/Off module off/on/off/on within two seconds to trigger manual mode on the lights. When I tuen the patio Switchlinc off, the On/Off module goes off for 10 seconds then back to putting the motions back into "auto". Couldn't be happier.

    Review of 2443-222

    I installed the 2442-222 Micro On/Off relay into my over head range to control the fan. This will be used as part of my HVAC solution to control and maintain the homes ambient temperature and humidity.

    The device will be controlled using the ISY-994iZ HA controller from UDI. The system works perfectly and the 2442-222 is a stellar product.

    The device is small and has a great form factor but should have mounting holes so it can be screwed in or wired tied for various installs. For my install I used double sided 3M tape to affix the unit. I will be buying many more of these devices as they are a great solution to deploy Insteon control in the home.

    I have been using this about a month and it has worked great. I now use it in a scene setting using the INSTEON HUB and it was easy to setup..
