- What's Included
Wall mount your Mini Remote switch or keypad on any wall. Simply mount the wall bracket with included screws and cover with a decorator wallplate (sold separately), then snap-in your Mini Remote. Works with any decorator wall plate although we recommend the Insteon Screwless Wall Plates.
Multiple brackets can be mounted side-by-side, allowing you to have 2, 3 or more Mini Remotes in a single location.
Want to mount Mini Remote next to an existing switch? No problem! Just purchase a multi-gang wallplate and mount the bracket to the back of it, screw the wallplate in place and snap Mini Remote into the opening.
Note: the Mini Remote is not rated for placement directly over open junction boxes.

- Mounting the bracket upside down works better! Review by JP
Mounting the bracket upside down works better!
Mounting the remote on the wall is a great idea, especially if it can be ganged together with an existing in-wall switch. But like many other reviewers, even installing it as per the instructions, the remote is VERY loose - felt like it was floating in the bracket. Yes, the back of the wall is supposed to help stabilize the unit, but it was still loose.
(Note - only mount this flush on a wall, NOT in an switch box. It is only intended to work for surface mount applications.)
After experimenting with the orientation of the bracket, I found a simple solution - MOUNT IT UPSIDE DOWN! I mounted it with the "top" printing pointing down (and with the printing facing into the room, not against the wall) and, for whatever reason, this worked much better. The switch is more secure this way, and since there are no electrical connections, there's no danger of doing it "wrong".
Still, Smarthome needs to redesign this bracket to assure a tight fit the way it was supposed to be. In its present form, it is a good idea that is poorly executed.

- Good enough Review by Andrew
I've read so many reviews giving this accessory bracket low stars because the remote "falls through the back into the junction box". Well DUH, it's not supposed to be used over an open junction box. C'mon people, read the description and think a second... this is supposed to be used adjacent to the existing box, against the drywall.
That said, the remote does wiggle a bit in the bracket, but it's never fallen out. Overall it does what it is advertised to do and doesn't deserve the low rating it's received.

- Very loose fit and no back - but hackable to make good enough Review by Jason
Very loose fit and no back - but hackable to make good enough
The remote fits very loose in this bracket and will fall through the back into a wall box - but it is hackable to make good enough.
I bought a piece of Lexan and had the home improvement store cut it to fit just over the electrical box, then I made screw holes through the Lexan using a Dremel tool. I then used foil tape to gradually decrease space between the Lexan and the bracket until the fit was better. I installed the bracket, then used small pieces of foil tape on the inside top and bottom edges of the bracket until the remote fit well without jiggle.
Smarthome note on product page: the Mini Remote is not rated for placement directly over open junction boxes.

- Bracket fits too loose to the mini remote. Review by John
Bracket fits too loose to the mini remote.
This unit is worthless. The remote fits so loosely in the bracket that it giggles around in the bracket, and any button push will easily push the remote out of the bracket. Come on SmartHome, you need to redesign this bracket. It's a needed product, but not in it's current form.
Agree with all other reviews that complain about the loose fit of the bracket.

- Am I missing something? Review by Tristan
Am I missing something?
Like many of these other reviews, my remote is very, very loose in this bracket. If you try to press a button on the remote, it just pops out the back of the bracket and into the gang box. Can't imagine that anyone at Insteon actually tried this in a real world application. Totally worthless!

- Too Loose Review by Mark
I agree with all of the other reviews. This bracket is far too loose to securely hold the remote. It's very floppy inside the bracket. I mounted the bracket to the back of a double gang Decora style wall plate, which I then mounted over a single gang box with another SwitchLinc. With the remote in place, it looks like a double switch. The remote does have sheetrock behind it. To correct the floppy issue, I cut a thin strip of gaffer's tape and put it on one side of the remote, covering the back half of the edge of the remote (where the grooves are that engage the small dots on the bracket). When I returned the remote to the bracket, I found that this little strip of tape was just enough to cause the remote to snap into the bracket. Now, it's very secure, but still easily removable, and you can't see the tape.

- Doesn't fit snugly Review by oktane
Doesn't fit snugly
Too loose, falls out easily, must be glued, which makes charging a disaster. How hard could this be to design properly?

- 2444B4 Review by Bob
Product works well until you push a button. Great idea, but terrible design. Remote presses into the wall box if you push the button with anything more than a very light touch.
I hope interesting on comes up with an upgrade.

- Does NOT Work - Be Warned Review by Jason
Does NOT Work - Be Warned
I should have read the reviews before I purchased this, but you would think something as simple as a bracket would just fit what it is designed for. Unfortunately, I did does NOT fit. Like almost all reviews, it falls through the hole for me when touched. I was mounting it in a low voltage box with no backing. I guess I will have to try and rig some type of backing to hold it in place. Wasn't that suppose to be the purpose of this bracket in the first place?
