I/O Linc - Insteon Low Voltage / Contact Closure Interface ( 1 In / 1 Out )

Insteon Remote Control Plug-in Low Voltage Controller

Expand your Insteon Network to 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).

    Worked well with the dusk/dawn sensor. I use it to sense dark days (very cloudy/stormy) to turn on my sunset program on my ISY.

    This is the third I/O Linc that I have installed in my home. They all work exactly as described in literature once I figured out how to program correctly.

    Easy to program with the hub or HL. Great device with lots of potential uses. Using a few of these to remotely control fireplace, garage door status & open/close, and to shut-off automatic sprinklers.

    Using this to power on my subwoofer from the DC trigger on my Power Amp. The I/O Linc replaces an x-10 interface module used to trigger an appliance module. This is fast and reliable where the x-10 was slow and worked only half the time. The RF link between modules overcomes PLC reliability issues due to the many power supplies in my media installation. Unlike the x-10 interface module, this unit only accepts a contact closure as a trigger. I had to add a reed relay between the power amp. DC output and the I/O Linc to allow for this requirement. This unit should be designed to allow low voltage DC input in addition to contact closure.

    I like this device. It is flexible, reliable and easily programmed. I have 4 of them handling contact closure applications and they all work well

    I substituted the I/O Link module for a combination of an X10 Powerflash & Universal Module. It seems to be holding up pretty well. It is a little more difficult to set up. But it is more versatile and thus more complicated. The I/O link appears to be working out well for us.
