INSTEON® Wall Switches / Lamp & Appliance controllers
Use this comparison chart to help you decide which switch best fits your requirements. If you will be replacing existing switches be sure to determine if the device they are controlling is dimmable (incandescent, halogen, etc.) or can only be controlled On/Off (compact fluorescent, motor load, etc.). Because these INSTEON switches, dimmers and keypads require power to transmit and receive commands, they must be connected to a neutral wire (with the exception of the SwitchLinc 2-wire dimmer). These are typically 2 or more white wires that are connected together with a wire-nut and tucked away in the back of the switch box.
