IRVINE, Calif., September 1, 2011 -- Smarthome announces the release of three new members to the RemoteLinc line of INSTEON wireless controllers - RemoteLinc 2 Switch; RemoteLinc 2 Keypad 4 Scene; and RemoteLinc 2 Keypad 8 Scene. All three products, and their accessories, are currently available for pre-order, and are expected to begin shipping at the end of September.
The RemoteLinc 2 - INSTEON Wireless Switch is an easy-to-use wireless remote that allows users to control INSTEON dimmers, switches and plug-in or receptacle dimmers. Like a traditional switch, tapping the top paddle turns the lights on and tapping the bottom paddle turns the lights off. The product can also be used as a dimmer by pressing and holding the switch. Additional programming options allow the RemoteLinc 2 - INSTEON Wireless Switch to function as a 2-scene controller.
Much like the switch, both the RemoteLinc 2 - INSTEON Wireless Keypad, 4-Scene and 8-scene versions allow users to control INSTEON dimmers and switches, however in a multi-button keypad. The 4-scene model can control four separate lights (or scenes) with ON/OFF capabilities. The 8-scene model can control eight separate lights (or scenes) with ON/OFF capabilities.
All three RemoteLinc 2 products can be used as a handheld remote control, a tabletop control (when used with the tabletop stand), from the car (when used with the visor clip) or as an additional wall switch, anywhere it is needed in the home, without having to rewire (when mounted in the wall mount bracket).
Each new RemoteLinc 2 is just 2.6 inches high by 1.3 inches wide and communicates to other INSTEON products via RF (radio frequency) signals. The products are powered by a rechargeable lithium battery. Based on average usage, the expected battery life between charges is > 6 months, but can easily be recharged using a standard USB Micro-B cable.
