  • Plug-in Control

    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.

    Remote Control

    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.

    Sensor Control

    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.

    Load Sense

    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.

    Custom On-Level

    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.

    Remote Control

    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.

    Very Reliable Review by Jason
    Very Reliable

    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
    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 Review by Dodger
    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.
