    Schedule the Dimmer Outlet with an adjustable ramp rate that slowly brings the lamp on off at any time of the day on any day of the week.

    LED and Insteon 2472 Outlet Review by Bob
    LED and Insteon 2472 Outlet

    I have a 2472 outlet and recently tried to plug in a LED lighted curio cabinet. The Insteon outlet started oscillating on/off very quickly. Ended up solving the problem by adding a 22ohm resistor that I had used with old X-10 modules and compact fluorescents for flickering. Essentially this just added a load to the module along with the almost non-existent load from the LED and it took care of the problem. Also, solving the short prongs when using the magnetic adapter, I used a 2 prong with ground adapter that added longer prongs and then added the cabinet light plug to the adapter. Works great.

    Key causes plug to pop out Review by Thomas
    Key causes plug to pop out

    The OutletLinc LED is
    blinking red even though I
    haven’t put it into unlinking
    The Outlet Dimmer Key may not be
    properly installed.
    Be sure the protruding magnet of the Outlet Dimmer
    Key faces away from OutletLinc and towards the
    plug of the load. See Installing OutletLinc Dimmer.
    Be sure the Outlet Dimmer Key lies completely flush
    against OutletLinc.
    If you have tried these solutions, reviewed this Owner’s Manual, and still cannot resolve .................... so I'm writing this review. I have 4 of these receptacles. Three work but the plug with key attached will pop out of receptacle.

    2 years and running Review by TimMcD1
    2 years and running

    I've had 4 of these installed and operating for at least 2 years each with no problems. I really prefer these for their discreet appearance. My only suggestion would be that without the key the unit would act as a relay (on/off) device rather than simply not working. I'm sure this would eliminate many complaints regarding lost keys and just makes more sense.

    Works well Review by Newbully
    Works well

    After many years of using X10 Modules I started with two Insteon Modules and an ISY99 controller. I bought five of the outlet dimmers which turn on lights and now all my Christmas lights throughout the hose. They keys were a surprise but as it turns out to be no issueI have had the modules for a year now and they work as expected. They are surely a more elegant solution then modules sticking out the wall.

    Review of 2472DWH

    Device too complicated to program with poorly written documentation - tech support guy was nearly useless - product appears to be for hobbyists only - my son and I could not figure it out and we both have advanced EE degrees with combined 50+ years work experience in the field

    Review of 2472DWH

    I was nudged toward the dimmer outlet because it was on sale and the more expensive "dimmable" feature was roughly the same price as the non dimmable outlet. I wish I was informed that the dimmable outlet requires a special "key" and cannot accept grounded devices and it seemed to be a bit finicky and ultimately stopped receiving commands, thankfully within the warrantee and you made it easy to return

    Review of 2472DWH Review by ROSS
    Review of 2472DWH

    I did not do my research good enough and have just put this in my parts box after purchasing a Micro On/Off module to use in a single gang box with a standard Decora receptacle with the hot buss cut. The external key is a warranty call back waiting to happen and I did not want an unhappy customer and non-paid time to keep my reputation good. I love the 2443-222 and I am glad that I found it for a previous customers job. I ordered 2 of these because I needed 1 for another job. My backup extra got installed today as a replacement for the 2472DWH that was a poor choice by me for my customer's need. This is good under some circumstances, but not for my application. It operated as it should and the setup is easy, but the external key is a liability.

    Works as advertized, easy to install if you are comfortable with replacing an outlet in your home.
