  • Invisible Control

    Say goodbye to bulky remote control modules - with the Dimmer Outlet, everything you need for remote control is built-in and completely invisible for a clean, elegant look.

    Individual Control

    The bottom outlet is always on. 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.

    Tamper Resistant

    Automation shouldn't place your family in jeopardy. That's why the Dimmer Outlet features tamper resistant receptacles, preventing your young ones from possible accidental electric shock.

    Limitless Control Options

    There's never been a more flexible outlet when it comes to remote control. Control directly at the outlet, use any Insteon device or even your smartphone with the Insteon Hub.

    The power of remote control.

    With the Insteon Dimmer Outlet, you can control the upper outlet independently - from a wireless remote in the same room - or from your smartphone on the other side of the world.

    From your Smartphone

    From any Insteon Device

    At the Outlet

    Control from your smartphone.

    With the Insteon Hub, you can remotely control either outlet from your smartphone or tablet. And not only that, you can create schedules, receive alerts and configure scenes, too. There's no need to buy a new, internet-connected crock pot.

    Remote Control

    It doesn't matter if you're controlling his and her nightstand lamps, you can turn on the Dimmer Outlet on and off from your smartphone or tablet.


    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.



    With the power of Insteon, Dimemr Outlet integrates perfectly with your Insteon scenes for one tap "All Off" or more engaging lighting moods for "Movie Time" and "Entertaining."

    Control from any Insteon device.

    The power of Insteon means remote control of either outlet from any Insteon device throughout your home.

    Wall Switch

    Looking for a switched-outlet without looking to hire an electrician? Make any Insteon switch control the Dimmer Outlet from anywhere in your home.

    Wall Keypad

    Insteon sensors automatically control you outlet using motion, doors, windows, water leaks or even detection of smoke.

    Control at the outlet.

    Remote control shouldn't be inconvenient. If you find yourself needing to turn on Dimmer Outlet with no remotes in sight, you can always switch the Dimmer Outlet on and off with just a tap.

    Local Control Button

    You're never too far from control with Dimmer Outlet. Just tap the button between the two outlets and you can turn it on and off.


    With LoadSense technology, your Dimmer Outlet can detect when you turn on a connected lamp and automatically turn on other Insteon devices throughout your home; your table lamp just became an Insteon switch.

    Feature rich.

    A remote control outlet is pretty cool, but we didn't stop there. Dimmer Outlet is packed with features that make it a fantastic addition to your home's automation repertoire.

    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.

    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.
