Insteon Remote Control Plug-in Low Voltage Controller

Monitor and Control Low Voltage and Contact Closure Devices
  • Monitor and control pool valves, electric door strikes, garage doors and more using your Insteon network
  • 4 output relay modes allow you to control many different types of devices
  • Control Insteon lights and appliances using standard sensors
  • Contains 1 sensor input and 1 output relay (NO/NC)
  • For control from an Insteon Mini Remote, you will need a Range Extender or other dual-band Insteon devices*
  • Can be used with an Insteon Hub however the included IOLinc module communicates via powerline only, so you may need a Range Extender or other dual-band Insteon devices*
  • Award-winning Insteon technology provides superior performance and reliability

*The included Insteon IO Linc module communicates over powerline only, which may cause issues if you are trying to remotely operate Insteon devices on a different electrical phase ( circuit) or from a Mini Remote. We recommended adding a Range Extender on the same phase to bridge the IO Linc module with Insteon RF-only or Dual-band devices.

  • What's Included
  • The latest Insteon plug-in module, I/O Linc, lets you monitor and control any low voltage devices such as alarm sensors, electric door strikes, and contact closures as part of your Insteon home automation network. With one dry-contact sensor input you can control many Insteon devices throughout the house. Plus, use the built-in single-pole double-throw (SPDT) switch, connect any low voltage-powered device for continuous or momentary operation. Create your own remote-control door lock using an electric door strike and power supply or use a security sensor turn Insteon controlled lights on or off.

    Required Accessories

    Sensor wire: 16 - 28 gauge wire fits, but 20 - 22 gauge recommended

    I/O Linc's flexible output relay can control many different types of low voltage devices, from pool valves to electric door strikes to garage doors due to its different relay modes. When controlling devices like pool valves, you will want the ability to leave it on for an extended period of time, giving it plenty of time to fill the pool. As it approaches the desired water level, then you can remotely turn it off. For devices like electric door strikes, set I/O Linc's output relay to momentary, allowing you open the front gate using a RemoteLinc or any other Insteon controller. A third version of I/O Linc's momentary mode allows you to remotely press your garage door button with an Insteon On command, but only if your garage is currently closed. This allows you to open your garage with On command and close it with an Off command. Because I/O Linc uses a garage door sensor to know whether the door is open or closed, it only controls the garage when it needs to.

    Controlling Two Separate Loads

    With the addition of a DPDT Relay Board, the I/O Linc is capable of switching two separate loads on and off together. In this configuration, the I/O Linc could control two different loads of varying voltages (i.e. one high voltage and one low voltage load) or two higher current loads (up to 7A @30VDC each).

    The I/O linc works great for garage door control but I didn't like that I had to use a lamp or appliance module in conjunction with it to be able to monitor the door status on the keypad linc. With three garage doors, that makes it a bit more expensive. I would think that feature would be built into it just like any other module.

    Review of 2450

    The response time for the I/O Linc is too slow. This unit only reacted to my relay that was providing the dry closure about 50% of the time. An X10 powerflash had to be re-installed and continues to work well. Also the bus on the 2450 is too small and required pigtailing to 22ga wire.

    I cannot figure out how to monitor the input sensor from my software.

    good product. i have three in use in my house for various purposes - acting as relay, detector, or both.

    some things that i would improve: first, in order to configure linking you need to push and hold the set button until you see an LED blink, but the button is positioned such that when you are pushing and holding it, your finger covers the LED (bad design shared with other insteon plug-in modules also). second, i would say reliability is "iffy" - i've had one of my three die on me. my oldest one is the one that died, so let's hope any reliability problems were linked to "first generation" product, as has been the case with some other insteon products.

    I use this to control my garage door opener. Works well.

    I wish they made one with dual contacts instead of having to buy two.
