  • What's Included
  • 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.

    Review of 2443-222

    I installed bathroom fans in each of our upstairs bathrooms. I installed junctions boxes in the attic using power that was already in the attic. For one fan I used the old style InLinelinc I had purchased previously for a lamp post future project and this micro on/off for the other fan. Linked each to their respective Switchlincs and they both work perfectly. No more moist bathrooms. The fans and modules can easily be serviced in the attic if need be.

    Review of 2443-222

    I purchased two of the micro on/off modules to replace the OutletLinc relays, controlling under cabinet lighting, since they were not dual band; I was having issues getting the devices to respond after purchasing new appliances. One junction box is plastic and the other is metal; blocking the wireless signal to control the module. I had to modify the module's antenna (small wire taped to the outside) and extend it about 6 inches. The extended antenna was then taped to the underside of the face plate for the outlet. Works perfectly every time! I hope this helps someone else! Be sure, if you have to modify, re-tape the module's antenna back down to prevent damage and insulate any exposed wires!

    Review of 2443-222

    Awesome little device - I put up a security/flood light and still wanted a wall switch so this was the perfect choice considering I didn't want to run wire from the light all the way to the outlet location.

    There is a slight delay in hitting the switch and when the light actually comes on but we are only talking seconds maybe 2/3 at the most.

    The sensing wires could be more robust

    Review of 2443-222

    bought as the offical recommend replacment for the 2475S2 In-LineLinc Relay with sense.

    After installing I discovered it was not compatible given it fails to support disabling the sense function via fast on & fast off like the 2475S2.

    Currently smarthome offers no work around or solution other then installing a 2nd device in tandem on each circuit not a real solution or setting up a script to manually send off commands when the unit is activated even less a solution

    Other problems :

    the sense wires are too fragile, break easily & are not replaceable. should be a screw terminal like all other connections

    For a non-electrician these were easy to install and a great addition to our home lighting system. Wish I had found Insteon sooner!

    Easy installation. Fits in existing box, even with large switches and rheostats. Can use existing switches, don't have any problems matching colors.

    Review of 2443-222

    Probably one of the coolest home automation devices I ever bought. The fact that it turns an everyday switch into an insteon device is fanominal. I installed mine on the light of my range hood over my stove. This is perfect for this type of application. The best part is that it turns the on off button into a toggle button. Very cool.
