    Portable 4-Scene Button Keypad

    The four buttons give you convenient control of other Insteon devices, either individual devices like an LED Bulb or Wall Switch, or full groups of devices like every lighting fixture in your living room.

    One Scene Button Explanation

    Portable Wall Switch

    Use the top or bottom of the paddle just like you would a traditional wall switch. Tapping controls your lights just as you would expect. If you’re controlling dimmable lights, pressing and holding even brightens and dims.

    Mini Remotes add to home automation Review by KELLY
    Mini Remotes add to home automation

    I have many mini remotes in use. They work great with scenes to do many functions with a touch of a button. I would recommend to use a hub over linking directly because you can always look at the scene on the app to see all that a button controls and also add other modules into the scene easily. I also tape a tiny menu to the back of the remote to help remember all that it controls . These tiny menus can be saved on your computer and altered at will when you change a button's function. I use the 8 button, 4 button and 1 button remotes all around the house. I even use the one button remote to create a light switch in a more convenient location. Some remotes are mounted on the wall incorporated into an array of light switches with accessories available at Smarthome and others are set on the desk or counter top. They recharge very quickly and last for many months with out a need to recharge, depending on how often it's used. I'd say a charge lasts 2 to 6 months and fully charges in less than 1 hour. I even have one 8 scene remote to control all the Christmas lights with one button for each christmas tree and garland display in the house , including the outside Christmas displays all with one remote. In 5 years of using various remotes, I have only had one failure and it failed straight out of the box upon charging for the first time. Smarthome promptly replace it at no charge. I love these remotes and Smarthome!

    Nice way to add switches Review by Andrew
    Nice way to add switches

    Easy to install. Hard to remember what all the buttons go to.

    Disappoitment Review by Autonow

    I got one of these I only lasted a few months long enough to be out of warranty.
    Initially it worked fine had to press the button a few time to get it to accept the input.
    The main problem was after I let it sit a few months in off with no use it would not take a charge and would not work. Since you can not change the battery it became a waste of money. I would find a way to use the powered keyads or just use mobilinc.

    Great idea. Implementation needs refinement. Review by James
    Great idea. Implementation needs refinement.

    Size is fantastic. Buttons are butterfly-angled which feels good in the hand - but means you can't really put labels on them and no custom etching is available. Not that you'd spend that much extra money on these - the batteries aren't replaceable and won't last as long as you'd hope. But at least they're rechargeable by USB while they last.

    The visor clips and table stands are oddly absent and sold separately for a shocking amount of money for what's a few pennies worth of injection molded plastic.

    A $45 disposable Review by Curmudgeon1
    A $45 disposable

    When the battery stops taking a charge, it's done. Throw it away. Too pricey not to be repairable.

    Bad quality battery Review by Ellison
    Bad quality battery

    Had it charged 3 times, then it stopped working. Green light turns on when connected to power, but it doesn't seem to keep charges anymore. Synced devices won't respond to its commands anymore. I have other models of Insteon mini remotes that are still working though.

    They sure are pushing these remotes, why are they better supported ? Review by CptKwirk
    They sure are pushing these remotes, why are they better supported ?

    They really seam to be pushing these remotes in sales all the time, but why aren't they supported in the Android App? I have quite a controllers that are hidden behind wall switches and in fixtures, so the "tap to program" method really isn't practical. Why can't these be programmed and added to scenes like all other devices? I understand its a battery device, but couldn't they set into a programming mode and then look like the wire in switches?

    No instructions, illogical app, totally useless Review by PHB
    No instructions, illogical app, totally useless

    I know what I want this to do. What I can't work out is how to make it do what I want. I literally have a degree in nuclear physics and I have been using computers over 40 years. The windows 10 app doesn't seem to be able to program these at all.

    Logically, you would select the device and assign functions to the buttons. Nope, doesn't work that way, select the remote and it asks if you want to turn it off.

    There are no instructions anywhere on how to program these devices and without that they are useless.

    The hub itself isn't capable of being programmed for interesting functions like 'open the garage doors and turn on the light if it is dark.'

    Battery Life? Review by rsable
    Battery Life?

    Can someone please comment on the battery life. I can't imagine mounting this on the wall without a charger like they show in some pictures. Don't own one yet so don't think it is fair to give it bad rating.

    Smarthome response: Battery Charge Hold Duration: 5~6 months based on average 5 button presses/day(will decrease over time).
