  • What's Included
  • This keypad is an elegant in-wall scene controller plus heavy-duty 20-amp switch all in one. Simply install the keypad in place of a standard wall switch and the on and off buttons control whatever the previous switch controlled (light/appliance), while the four scene buttons can be programmed to control any number of INSTEON devices such as dimmers, receptacles, A/V gear and more. Furthermore, KeypadLinc can itself be a member of countless scenes. This gives you remote control of both the connected light or appliance as well as any of the the scene button LEDs. This newest member of the KeypadLinc family supports voltages from 120 to 277V, making it the perfect energy saving, wireless controller for residential and commercial building automation systems.

    Need to control more lights from this location? You can easily change this 6-button KeypadLinc to an 8-button keypad using the White 8 Button Change Kit for KeypadLinc. You can also change colors to match your decor using these kits which are available in Ivory, Almond, Light Almond, Black, Brown, and Gray.

    Software configurable
    Using INSTEON software such as HouseLinc, you can control, program and manage settings for this and other other INSTEON devices in your home. You can even schedule timed events, receive email alerts when devices are activated and more. Learn more about HouseLinc.

    Easy To Install
    INSTEON 6 Button Keypad Controller with On/Off Switch is easy to install and set up and yet so affordable, you'll be able to replace many of your switches with KeypadLinc. Just remove the old switch, reattach the line, load, and ground wires with the addition of the neutral wire using the included wire nuts, and you're done.

    Scene Lighting
    Scenes allow you to control multiple lights with one button. You can save and control up to five different individual lights, multi-light scenes, or even your whole home. Because KeypadLinc can be a member of more than 400 scenes (i.e. "Movie Time," "Party," "Romance," etc.), you'll be able to launch various lighting scenarios with a press of one of the keypad buttons. These are elegant features usually found only in systems costing tens of thousands of dollars and requiring extensive rewiring of your home. All remotely controlled lights can ramp to your independently desired brightness levels at your chosen ramp rates, so one set of lights can dim slowly while another set turns off instantly, all controlled with one command from one button.

    Monitor Other Devices
    The buttons on INSTEON 6 Button Keypad Controller with On/Off Switch illuminate when ON signals are sent and when signals are detected from other INSTEON devices linked to KeypadLinc. This allows the KeypadLinc to monitor lights in other rooms, which is incredibly useful if you want to control lights that aren't easily seen from the location, like those in bedrooms, bathrooms, basements, garages, attics, etc.

    Flexible Setup
    The KeypadLinc gives you tremendous flexibility with controlling your lighting system. Other wall-mounted keypads only provide on/off control of all devices, however; KeypadLinc button can perform up to four different functions. Press a button once for ON; press again for OFF. Press and hold to brighten, press and hold again to dim. If you prefer, turn off the toggle feature to send the same command every time. This is a helpful feature when programming an "all on" command button to press when you get home or "all off" command button to press when you leave for the day.

    Create Multi-Way Circuits
    KeypadLinc allows you to customize your lighting setup no matter how your house is wired. It's simple to create a 3-, 4-, or 5-way circuit. First replace all of the existing switches you want to include in the circuit with either a KeypadLinc, INSTEON SwitchLinc Dimmer, or a INSTEON SwitchLinc Relay (Non-Dimmable). The main controller must be connected to the standard wires, load, line, neutral, and ground. The secondary switches only need to be connected to line, neutral, and ground. No traveler wires are needed, so it is easy to place one of the switches wherever you need it. Cross-linking all of the companion switches to the master switch is the last step in the process.

    Commercial Applications for INSTEON
    The KeypadLinc features dual-voltage support which allows it to be used in residential (120V) or commercial (277V) applications. Now you can bring the power of lighting control and automation into your business.

    The keypad is dual band so it has the ability to communicate using both the electrical wires in the home (powerline) as well as using radio frequency (RF). This increases reliability not only for the keypad but for all devices on an INSTEON home control network (similar to the function of an Access Point).

    Depth Comparison
    The new KeypadLinc dual-band requires about a quarter-inch more depth than previous versions of KeypadLinc. Also, with the extra depth, the dual-band KeypadLinc will not fit inside the tabletop enclosure.

    Non-Volatile Memory
    All KeypadLinc settings are stored in non-volatile memory and are not lost during power failures. Additionally, in the event of a power loss, the KeypadLinc will return to its last on/off state when power is restored.

    dual band switch flickers Review by Stephen
    dual band switch flickers

    i installed insteon switches throughout my house a year or 2 ago. i have about 50 switches. maybe 8-10 of them are dual band. a few of the lights flickered or flashed on/off over the last few years & i wasn't sure the cause for quite a while. after buying this switch, i realize that the dual-band devices i have are incredibly susceptible to insteon traffic. the light flickers a ton when insteon traffic is on the system (even if it isn't intended for the load of this switch).

    given this shortcoming, i find this product fairly pathetic. i will be returning & hoping for a power-line only version.

    Review of 2487S

    Great for use as an entry-way station, or master bedroom station for multiple Insteon functions from a single location. Installation can be a bit difficult into multi-switch wall boxes because of the number of wires present, as the KeypadLinc has quite heavy wiring. Easily integrated into a whole-house set-up via UDI's ISY series controllers.

    Review of 2487S

    These switches have been improved over the past 5 years or so. I bought some when Insteon first came out pre dual band days and those had problems. Recently I have moved and bought about 10 of these keypads. I can say that the relays in these are much better than the old ones they seem to have well overrated contacts to avoid the contact fusing issues I had with the 5 year old switches. These also have a higher current rating overall as witnessed by the use of 12 gauge wire, I'm assuming that means 20 amp contacts on the relay? Of the 10 switches I bought in the past year only one has failed, and that was most likely due to a power surge on the day of a very bad wind/lightning storm. I would say these are very reliable now. But Smarthome needs to ship 12 GA wire nuts with these, the yellow nuts it comes with are 14 gauge and wont hold 2 12 gauge wires. The dual band really helps.
