  • The INSTEON LampLinc Dimmer (Dual-Band) is a full-featured plug-in lamp dimmer that can be remotely controlled by a Mini Remote, KeypadLinc, or any other INSTEON controller. This simple-to-use plug-in dimmer has advanced features like an adjustable ramp rate that slowly brings the lamp on, a preset dim level that stores your preferred choice of 32 brightness levels when turning the lamp on initially, as well as local control, so you can still use the lamp's built-in switch to turn the light on and off. This LampLinc is made to be plugged into any wall outlet. This dimmer can control incandescent loads up to 300 watts.

    Until now, lamp and appliance controllers only received INSTEON signals via the powerline. Now with the dual-band LampLinc you not only receive RF commands directly from any RF INSTEON component (Mini Remote, Thermostat adapter) but the device doubles as an Access Point - relaying RF and powerline signals to other INSTEON-compatible devices in the home.

    Never come home to a dark house again: Install HouseLinc - INSTEON Desktop Software on your computer to schedule any LampLinc or any other INSTEON-compatible device to turn on or off at any specific time or even at sunrise and sunset.

    Easy To Install
    The LampLinc is easy to plug-in and set up that you'll want to add LampLinc dimmers to all of your lamps. Just unplug the lamp, plug the lamp into the bottom outlet of the dimmer, and plug in the dimmer where the lamp was plugged in. Link the dimmer to an INSTEON controller using the Plug & Tap programming method, and you'll be able to turn the lamp on and off, brighten and dim.

    Brightness Levels
    You can adjust the brightness level of the controlled lamp by pressing and holding the on or off button of an INSTEON controller. The brightness level can also be adjusted on the module via the Up/Down buttons. Adjusting brightness levels is especially helpful when you want to create a theatrical experience when watching your favorite movie. Use a Mini Remote or pair your universal remote control with an IRLinc, and you won't even have to leave the comfort of your couch to dim the light. When you turn on the LampLinc dimmer, it automatically comes on to full brightness. Setting the preset on level will make the dimmer stop at your preferred choice of 32 brightness levels. With software you can control brightness levels in one percent increments for ultimate flexibility. This is a great feature for your bedroom to set the mood.

    Adjustable Ramp Rate
    Adjust the speed at which the controlled light turns on or off, also known as the ramp rate. For example, you may want the lamp in the kids' room to turn on instantly so you can see where you're walking. Alternatively, you may want the lamp in the master bedroom to ramp up in a soft, gentle fashion so that you're not blinded when you wake up in the morning. The ramp rate is adjustable between 0.1 seconds and 9 seconds if programmed locally; this can be done by using the convenient Up/Down buttons located on the module. The ramp rate can extend up to 8 minutes (for a simulated sunrise or sunset) if programmed remotely. This is a great addition to your morning alarm, slowly turning the light on to help you wake up. If you have programmed a slow ramp rate and want to make the lamp come on instantly, simply double tap the controller's on button. To turn the light off quickly, double tap the controller's off button.

    Red/Green Status LED
    The Status LED is used for setup programming. It is now located at the top of the module for easier viewing when programming or troubleshooting.

    Create Multi-Way Circuits
    Want to be able to synchronize a wall switch with your lamp so that when your recessed lights are controlled at the switch, your floor lamp follows along? You can do it with INSTEON. Simply link your LampLinc with an INSTEON-compatible wall switch and in seconds you're done.

    Scene Lighting
    Scenes allow you to set unique lighting levels across multiple lights and trigger them with a single command. Because the LampLinc 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 single button press on any INSTEON controller. These are elegant features usually found only in systems costing tens of thousands of dollars and requiring extensive rewiring of your home. All scene member lights can ramp to your independently desired brightness levels at your chosen ramp rate(s), so one set of lights can dim slowly while another set turns off instantly, all controlled with one command from one button.

    Non-Volatile Memory
    All LampLinc Dimmer settings are stored in non-volatile memory and are not lost during power failures. Additionally, in the event of a power loss, the LampLinc Dimmer's lamp will return to its last brightness level when power is restored.

    they work Review by fatty
    they work

    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.

    Get some!!!!!!

    Extremely Terrible Customer Service - Buyer beware Review by KC
    Extremely Terrible Customer Service - Buyer beware

    Purchased "Insteon LampLinc Plug-In Lamp Dimmer Module (4 Pack)" on Sale before Christmas. Tried to track after 2 weeks without receiving the items. For whatever reason the package labelled "undeliverable" and returned to sender warehouse. I then checked the order and found out the 2nd address line (suite & apt#) was truncated. I then checked my account address and they are there. I immediately called customer service and explained the situation and asked the agent to correct the address and re-send back to me because I want the items. The agent told me no problem and everything will be taken care of. A few days ago, I received an email from Smarthome stating my refund was processed so I replied to them along with the explanation and asked the item to be re-shipped. Today email stated there is no way to do that and I have to re-order with regular price. I then called customer service and was told that I entered the wrong address when I ordered online. They are not responsible. So lessons learned. Buyer beware to triple check everything before completing the order. For me, I am changing my entire control away from Insteon and will not buy anything from Smarthouse ever again.

    Where's the X-10 support? Review by Lewis
    Where's the X-10 support?

    Previous versions of this device supported X10 control of the 2457D2, and this is important to me because I am gradually replacing a houseful of X10 gadgets with Insteon, starting with the switches/devices while using my existing X10 controllers. It looks like Smarthome has quietly removed X10 support from the 2457D2,and deleted pages 22-24 from the Owners Manual. WTF, Smarthome????

    Does what it says, but awful design Review by Joe
    Does what it says, but awful design

    The lamp dimmer works. That said, the design is awful. It makes my LED bulbs hum audibly - this is terrible for a nightstand lamp near your bed.

    Second, it seems that the Insteon folks put no thought at all into how this would be used. How many people really want to bend over and control a lamp at the outlet for local control?? Anyone?? This should have a plug on a wire built in so that the dimmer switch can be placed on a stand next to the lamp, or attached under the shade. I use an extension cord in order to do this, but it does not look as sleek as a slim wire.

    Also, the reviews state that older versions had a load sensor so that you could still use the original lamp switch locally. That sounds great, and possibly would compensate for having the control attached to the outlet. Why oh why would Insteon eliminate such a feature? I just don't get it.

    Much as I love the automation that Insteon enables, I really do look forward to the day when such things are more ubiquitous and Insteon is forced to make better products.

    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.
