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).

    Review of 2450

    I bought this item after I had installed seven dimmers. I had the habbit of leaving my garage door open, even when I went on 5 day business trips. Nothing happened, but still. My neighbor would send me pictures of the open door and then hit the switch inside and run real fast. Now, with the use of the ISY99 my door closes two hours before sundown if it was open. Ith the use of Panasonic IP cams I can let know individuals in my house by controlling the door remotely on my Android phone without giving them any codes. I used another module to monitor my daughters room windows in the summer. Now they can be 50% open for air circulation. If someone opens the window further without my consent, very loud piezo buzzers and all outside lights will turn on and the IP cam will take follow the intruder, until I do. The video can be sent to the local police for evidence within minutes. So I am waiting for the day a boyfriend tries to sneak in.

    I bought 1 of these and both have stopped working after a couple months. Insteon seems to be riddled with quality issues. I will never buy Insteon again.

    I used this to extend the control of an existing switch for its switched wall outlets. To the existing switched outlet, I added an old 12VDC laptop power supply, connected to the coil of a reed relay from FRY's. The normally open contacts connected to the INSTEON 2450, which sends the on/off commands to X10 lamp modules across the room. This save hundreds of dollars to get the remote outlets wired to the wall switch.

    Love the product however I have quality concerns... this is my second purchase of the unit as my first one just died. This always seems to happen months after warranty expiration. I have gone through three SmartLinc's as well due to failure over time.

    Wired this up to my garage door after finding the Zwave wireless sensor I was using was unreliable due to all the metal in the garage. This installed in minutes and the momentary contact closure is a great feature vs. just on/off. Configured easily to Homeseer.

    Using it with a magnetic proximity switch on the garage door. Works great.

    Works great. I use it for my garage door in conjunction with a wireless camera.

    This thing is pretty cool. I coupled it with a pressure mat and now it turns on a night light for 5 minutes if you step on the pad in the middle of the night.
