  • Setup
    The ControLinc uses a simple "Plug-N-Tap" process to link to other INSTEON devices. Put the ControLinc in setup mode by pressing any of the five ON buttons for 10 seconds, and then press the button on the module you would like to control. That's all it takes to link the ControLinc to any INSTEON module!

    Scene Capable
    Each of the five ON/OFF buttons on the ControLinc can be set up to control one INSTEON module or multiple modules in a scene.

    Works with Legacy X10 Products
    Each of the five ON/OFF buttons on the ControLinc can be assigned an X10 address. This enables the ControLinc to bridge your INSTEON network with your legacy X10 network. The ControLinc ON/OFF buttons can be assigned any X10 address and do not have to be assigned sequentially. This makes the ControLinc an excellent replacement for your existing X10 mini-controller.

    Works as advertised but is much bigger than I expected. Only 5 button pairs so RemoteLinc is a better choice with 6. Saving grace is that it sends X10 signals.

    Works with my X-10 devices just fine. Like the size and layout of the controller. A great deal.

    No stars
    Don't know if they worked or not as I could not get any of the products to work together. I am returning everything. Neither the chat line or your support line was any help. Finally John admitted that the leds on the switches were supposed to be on from initial hook-up. They were not. The led on the Controlinc never reponded by going solid and never linked.
    Your sales people had me buy Access Points to make the system work but they never had any effect.

    Very disappointed. Product didn't do what I was led to believe it would do ie program several lights at a time for on and off function @ a predetermined time.

    This works really well. I have it on my nightstand next to my bed. It is not dual band it's power line only so your mileage may vary. You may have to use a different outlet if you have not bridged the phases in your house.

    The LED light flashes with activity which might be a problem for some people at night. I believe you can turn the LED off, but it doesn't bother me.

    Controller is easy to setup and works reliably. It supports both INSTEON and X-10 commands. It would be nice if it had status indicators for each button instead of a single LED. When used on a nightstand, the LED is too bright at night. It can be turned off, which makes it hard to locate the device at night, but it cannot be dimmed. It would be better if the buttons themselves were illuminated. - The device feels somewhat bulky and takes up a lot of space on the nightstand. It may more suitable for a living room. - The arrangement of the buttons (bright on left and dim on right) is somewhat counter-intuitive. This is also true for the fact that the scene buttons are arranged vertically, but the dim buttons that repeat the last selected scene commands are arranged horizontally. - The PC template for printing a new, curved button label is not very precise, and the label is hard to read due to a small font and dark glass. - Overall, the device works well, but the design and visual feedback to the user could be improved significantly.
