Even if every room in your home is lit with recessed lights, chandeliers and wall sconces, chances are, you still have a table lamp or two. Insteon Plug-in Modules let you add remote control of all of these "less sophisticated" plug-in apparati.
While our plug-in modules do feature embedded on and off buttons, you don't really want to reach behind the couch to turn on a lamp. Thanks to Insteon, you can control your connected lamps and appliances from any wall switch, keypad, sensor - or even your smartphone when used with the Insteon Hub.
Plug-in In-Line Control
Setup of your Insteon Plug-in device couldn't be easier. All you have to do is connect your lamp's power cord to the outlet on the bottom of the Insteon module and then connect the Insteon module to a regular unswitched power outlet.
Buttons When You Need Them
If you need to turn your connected device on or off when your remote controls aren't handy, you can just tap the up or down arrows on the side. Chances are, you'll find your Insteon Wall Switch or Smartphone a better remote control, though.
With LoadSense technology, your Dimmer Module can detect when you turn on a connected lamp or appliance and automatically turn on other Insteon devices throughout your home; your table lamp just became an Insteon switch.
Bring Your Own Plug-In Lamp
Home control doesn't need to conflict with your décor; sophisticated or contemporary, elegant or wacky, Insteon Plug-In modules let you bring any plug-in lamp to the home automation party. It doesn't matter if you want to use Grandma's generations-old Tiffany lamp or a brand new, mass-produced objet d'art, if it has a power cord, Insteon Plug-in modules give you the power of remote control.
Not every room needs to be bright all the time. With Dimmer Module, a customizable On-Level lets you pick how bright your lamp is when you turn it on. Set the brightness to be anywhere from 1- to 100%.
Programmable Ramp Rate
The days of being startled by instantaneous bright light are gone. Ramp Rates with Dimmer Module let you specify how quickly or slowly a lamp turns on. Slowly brighten from off to on over the course of 0.1 seconds to 8 minutes.
Complete Scene Support
Control multiple lights or appliances from a single button with Scenes. With Dimmer Module, scenes let you gracefully fade lights in and out, combining the benefits of both preset On-Levels and Ramp Rates.
Smartphone Remote Control
Add the Insteon Hub to the mix and you can control your Plug-in devices from your smartphone or tablet. And then some.
Whatever you have connected to your Plug-in module, control it from your smartphone with the Insteon Hub. Home or away, it doesn't matter when your smartphone is always at your side.
Next time the in-laws visit, wow them with your automation skills by creating scenes for dining, entertaining - even a special "midnight snack" button that illuminates just the lights they will need to find the kitchen after dark.
One-up the Jones this year when you put out your holiday decorations. With Insteon, all of your outdoor lights will turn on at sunset in perfect unison - that means you can look professional while still going overboard.
You can always configure On-Level and Ramp Rate using the set button on your device, but it's so much better when you add a smartphone to help manage all of the hidden features your devices include.
Remote control from another Insteon device.
Let convenience be your mantra and use the power of Insteon to automate home. Whether it's as simple as using a Wireless Switch to turn on your space heater or as elaborate as sensor-triggered automatic activation, Insteon is your tool.

- So far so good. Review by Jim
So far so good.
I've been a long time user of Smarthome automation products. X10 worked but it was never consistent. The newer Insteon products have worked consistently and reliably for over two years. (Except for the sprinkler controller which I have replaced twice). I have 6 of these plug-in lamp dimmers and all are working perfectly.

- THESE DON'T WORK WITH LED CHRISTMAS LIGHTS Review by ROBERT CARLSON M.D.
THESE DON'T WORK WITH LED CHRISTMAS LIGHTS
ROBERT CARLSON M.D.
For some reason, the lamp dimmer modules do not work properly with some LEDs such as Christmas Tree lights. They turn the lights on OK, but do not turn them off all the way, leaving them dimly glowing.
I confirmed this with customer support. They said it had something to do with the lights not drawing enough power. They suggested buying yet another module which is only ON/OFF and not a dimmer. However, this module made the LEDs flicker.
I was finally able to get the lights to turn off and on properly using the Outdoor Switch (green) module, which has a real ON/OFF relay, rather than a electronic switch.
All in all, it was a lot more hassle than I expected, and they didn't make this limitation clear in their advertisements.
