  • What's Included
  • Say goodbye to plug-in lamp modules and get a clean, professional look with the new OutletLinc Dimmer. This revolutionary receptacle is the first of its kind to offer a built-in dimmer that can be remotely controlled from anywhere using devices such as a remote control, wall keypad or even your smartphone.

    The simple-to-use OutletLinc 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 load sense, so you can still use the lamp's built-in switch to turn the light on and off. It's made to be installed in place of any wall receptacle and controls incandescent loads up to 300 Watts. Also features a standard (always on) outlet rated up to 15 Amps.

    Software configurable
    Using INSTEON software such as HouseLinc, you can control, program and manage settings for OutletLinc Dimmer and any other INSTEON devices in your network. You can even schedule timed events, receive email alerts when devices are activated and more. Learn more about HouseLinc.

    Unparalleled Safety Features
    • Tamper resistant outlets
      • Spring-loaded shutter mechanism allows plugs to enter but resists access to single-pronged items like keys, hairpins, or nails. Conforms to NEC Article 406.11.
    • Over-heating protection
      • If ever the internal temperature of the receptacle rises to unsafe levels, OutletLinc Dimmer will automatically shut off power.
    • Dimmer Key
      • In order for the top outlet dimmer to work, the lamp plug must have the Dimmer Key attached. This key is a small, razor-thin piece that goes over the lamp plug. This prevents others in your home from unplugging the lamp and plugging in non-dimmable appliances that could result in damaging of the appliance.

    Reliability and Network Enhancements
    This latest member of the INSTEON family of products features dual-band technology which allows OutletLinc Dimmer to send and receive commands using both radio frequency (RF) and power line. So not only can you control it from power line-only or RF-only devices, it will repeat both signal types for other devices in your network, making your entire INSTEON system faster.

    A dual-band device can also act as a phase bridge when paired with another dual-band device in the home.

    OutletLinc dimmer is available in the following colors:


    Light Almond






    For added convenience, the OutletLinc Dimmer bottom outlet is always on. So, whether you need an outlet in the hallway for the vacuum, or an outlet behind the living room couch for an INSTEON tabletop controller, you'll never have to worry about the outlet being switched off. Also, if you ever need to switch the top outlet on manually, you can either use OutletLinc's built-in ON/OFF button (located between its two outlets) or turn your lamp or appliance on and off with its own ON/OFF switch (with load sensing enabled).

    Non-Volatile Memory
    All settings are stored in non-volatile memory and are not lost during power failures.

    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

    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.

    Only problem I had was the linking of the Togglelinc to the OutletLinc Dimmer. Took a few attempts to make the link, but once done - it's worked fine.

    Review of 2472DWH

    Terrible. Won't link to hub when 20 other devices can. Spent weeks on email with support. Cannot pair. Will be asking credit card to reverse charge as last return they never refunded my money.

    Review of 2472DWH

    Easy to install and set up. Very happy with it. We decided to use the Insteon Outlet rather than the Insteon Module strictly for appearance.

    Replaced a plug-in next to mantle to control Holiday lighting. The dual band has improved reliability of other devices in that room too.
