  • What's Included
  • Want to add wireless remote control to your automated window shutters, blinds and projector screens? INSTEON makes it easy. Micro Open/Close Module is the first INSTEON device designed specifically for up/down and open/close motor-controlled appliances. By including the Micro Open/Close module as a part of your INSTEON home automation network, you will enjoy remote control of your shutters, blinds, screens and more.

    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. The patented INSTEON dual-band communication reliably sends signals over existing electrical wires (powerline) in your home and via radio frequency (RF). Micro Open/Close Module is so tiny that it can even be installed as an in-line module within a fixture box (like an In-LineLinc), providing remote control without running legs for a wall switch.

    INSTEON also offers a Micro Dimmer Module and a Micro On/Off Module.

    INSTEON Micro Open/Close 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.

    Not for Whole House Fan Review by Jim
    Not for Whole House Fan

    Tried to use this to control a 2-speed whole house fan. While the module works fine, I couldn't make it work for this purpose. I was hoping there was a way to set it to switch one load on continuously or the other. Clement indicated you could do this with Brighten and Dim but I couldn't find a way to send that command. ISY-994i couldn't access continuous to L1 or L2 either. Now I just need to find some blinds this works with. Any suggestions?

    I installed four of these on hurricane shutters for my cabana. So far, they work perfectly! Easy to install and follow along to set up. Highly recommend!

    very dissatisfied - product does not work as advertised. Tech Support has done nothing to solve the problem. It has been three weeks since I submitted a tech support request, they confirmed having gotten my request and confirmed they could reproduce the problem.

    Really awesome. Drastically simplified the INSTEON management of my projector screen.

    Also works quite well with window fans, now I can control the on/off status as well as the direction of the Window Fan by sending a brigthen or dim command instead of on/off which is momentary.

    Review of 2444-222

    Works as advertised, I can now program my shutters to go up and down as needed. Only drawback is that the micro switch is not fully supported by my HouseLink so it's a little glitchy sometimes. Have been told later releases of HouseLink will fully support.

    Review of 2444-222

    I've been looking for a programmable control for my storm/security shutters for a couple of years now so I thought I'd order this micro switch and give it a try. It works great! I can program my shutters to close and open with the sunset or sunrise and it works great with my HouseLink! This is an excellent product, my original switches still work as well.
