NOW: $59.95

Essential Info

FanLinc is designed to easily incorporate both fan speed and light control within your INSTEON network. It is a dual-load responder simultaneously acting as a light fixture dimmer plus a 4 speed fan controller (Off, Low, Medium & High). Control the fan speed or lighting kit wirelessly from any INSTEON controller, be it a handheld remote, wall keypad or even your smartphone. Tie it in with a computer controller that can trigger all the fans in the house to turn on (at a predetermined speed) to help circulate the air, reducing costs associated with running your air conditioner.

FanLinc is yet another great addition to the ever expanding family of INSTEON products. View all INSTEON products here.

fanlinc diagramHow FanLinc Works
FanLinc is compatible with most ceiling fans and installs inside the fan cowling between the fan and incoming power. You'll want to make sure you have access to both the fan and (if your fan has a lighting kit attached) the light control wires.

Before finalizing your FanLinc installation you'll want to link it to your selected controllers. Because you don't want to be removing your ceiling fan every time you want to add or remove links, we recommend using software such as HouseLinc to manage all of this from your computer.

Note: FanLinc is not compatible with fans that have remote control built into the motor.

Control Ideas
While there are a wide variety of INSTEON controllers to choose from, let us provide some suggestions...
  • For a truly wireless solution use a handheld 8-scene RemoteLinc to control the ceiling fan from the couch, bedside or mount it anywhere on the wall using a wall mount bracket. Links between RemoteLinc and FanLinc can be made manually however, software configuration recommended.

  • For a more permanent solution, go with an in-wall 6-button KeypadLinc. KeypadLinc replaces any existing wall switch and provides wireless communications to the FanLinc. Links between KeypadLinc and FanLinc can be made manually however, software configuration recommended. pre-labeled FanLinc buttons or Custom-etched keys are sold separately.
FanLinc Control Options

FanLinc is dual band so it has the ability to communicate using both the electrical wires in the home (powerline) as well as using radio frequency (RF). This increases reliability not only for FanLinc but for all devices on an INSTEON home control network (similar to the function of an Access Point).
