- What's Included
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.
You might not have thought about it, but a good deal of your plug-in appliances become quite handy when automated. Automatically control table lamps with a motion sensor. Use open/close sensors to automatically turn on & off lamps when a door is opened & closed.
On/Off or Dimming
No matter what you want to control, there is an Insteon Plug-in Module for your needs. Dimming, On/Off and Outdoor On/Off modules are available to control everything from lava lamps in your parlor to holiday decorations in freezing rain.
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.
Control on Apple Watch
Control lamps and appliances from your wrist with the Insteon App on Apple Watch. With just a tap, set the brightness of a Dimmer Module to any one of four presets.
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.

- no good for me Review by hhh222
no good for me
This newer model will not pair with the older original 2440 remote which is all I am willing to use at this time for a controller. The mini remotes are way too mini and do not have near the flexibility as the 2440. I am also not willing to use my phone to control lighting. I believe there are a lot of people who would appreciate an updated 2440. Hopefully our current dimmers will last several more years

- Broken after two months Review by An ominously
Broken after two months
I purchased a starter kit from ebay seller midwest closeout, and really had a great time for first two months. However one of the dimmer stopped working and was told by insteon support that ebay purchase is not covered.

- The fundamentals Review by James
Every HA project needs a handful of these for your various plugin lamps. I'm switching from Z-Wave so that nearly everything can be controlled by Keypadlincs (sans computer) for our next homeowners. Pleasantly surprised with these - slightly more affordable than the units they replace and about the same size as the latest generation z-wave plugin modules (and quite a bit smaller and better looking than the old gen ones).
Only point of improvement I can see at this time would be a swivel plug to fit more outlet configurations.

- Excellent product! Review by John
I bought two of these with the hub. I was so impressed I bought another set for my mother's apartment! She isn't that tech savvy, so I will set it up for her. Once I set it up (probably it will take less than 10 minutes after the box is open), I'll have her controlling the lights on her smart phone.
So glad I discovered SmartHome and Insteon.

- Where is the X10? Review by Elmo
Where is the X10?
I like insteon and liked the fact that I could use my X10 controllers to turn lights on and off. The latest versions seem to have that nice feature missing. My hope of upgrading to Insteon over time has just taken a U-turn.
Smarthome response: When Insteon products were launched years ago, the intention to include X10 support was to help make it easier for those with older X10 systems to transition to Insteon. Now 11 years later X-10 support is being phased out across the Insteon line. We apologize for the inconvenience.

- Very Reliable Review by Jason
If you have been an X-10 user for years like I am you will appreciate the amazing speed of response and the ultra-reliable nature of the Lamplinc. I have converted almost every room's table lamps over to these modules. The ability to have these respond to scenes has been great. The only downside is that even when these are putting into load sensing mode they don't work quite as seamlessly as the old X-10 modules at turning the load on via the lamps built in switch, but it's other enhancements far outweigh this.

- they work Review by fatty
got the 4 pack before Christmas. Christmas trees, mantle light window candle came on with a gentle ramp up and went off with a sweet ramp down at the prescribed time. what could be better. I love wasting money on useless gadgets. My back loves not crawling around trying to turn things off and on. My wallet loves my wife not having lights on when we aren't home.

Review of 2457d2
Small, looks nice. Functions as advertised, but... these do NOT support load-sensing as did previous models. With load-sensing, if the unit is 'off', you can locally switch on the lamp by turning the lamp off, then on -- no need to find a controller. just turn the light on! I really don't understand how companies can remove product features with replacement items.... product marketing genius.
