    Each Insteon LED Bulb is fully remote controllable; everything from on and off to brightness and scheduling can be had. You can even control these bulbs with your smartphone when used with the Insteon Hub.

    Energy Efficient LED

    When it comes to illumination, time to brightness, and efficiency, nothing beats modern solid-state LED lighting; that's why we've chosen LED for our Insteon Bulbs.


    Flicker-free dimmable LED glory awaits you with Insteon LED Bulbs. We've designed these bulbs to dim from 1% to 100% for a full range of lighting moods.

    Bulb Types

    We know that not every light fixture is well suited for traditional A19-style light bulbs. That's why we've made both traditional A19 and a larger PAR38 for recessed lights.

    Remote control bulb.

    Insteon LED Bulbs are award winning for a reason: packed into each bulb are both energy-efficient and power-saving LED illumination as well as advanced Insteon technology for complete remote control throughout your home. They're easy to control using Insteon Wall Switches, Keypads, wireless Mini Remotes and even your smartphone when used with the Insteon Hub.

    Smartphone or Tablet

    Take remote control to a new level when you add the Insteon Hub. Every iOS, Android or Windows Phone device in your home can remotely control and configure your Insteon LED Bulbs.

    Insteon Devices

    Upgrade your wall switches with Insteon Dimmer Switches and Keypads and remotely control your Insteon LED Bulbs as if they were directly connected. Or use a Mini Remote when you want a switch where one might be absent.

    Insteon Sensors

    Use the happenings of your home to automate your lighting. Open/Close Sensors let you turn lights on and off when doors or windows open. Motion Sensors turn your LED Bulbs into occupancy-sensing lights.

    Remote control from your smartphone.

    There is no more powerful remote control in your home than your smartphone. With Insteon LED Bulbs and the Insteon Hub, you can control every aspect of your Insteon LED Bulbs.

    Remote Control

    Your smartphone allows access to controllable features that you can't get at any other way - advanced multi-device scenes, configurable items like Ramp Rate and On Level. Remote control, in this case, is much more than being able to turn on (or off) your light from anywhere in the world.


    Enjoy the freedom that comes with lighting automation and set your Insteon LED Bulbs to turn on using schedules. Schedule a slow brighten to wake you up in the morning. Setup a few lights to bounce around the house when you're not home. Or just ensure the porch light turns on at sunset and off at sunrise.

    Ramp Rate & On Level

    With Ramp Rate, you decide how long it takes for your LED Bulb to turn on or off; pick a ramp from instant all the way to 8 minutes. Sometimes you just don't need the full brightness of a light bulb. With On Level, customize the preset brightness from 1% to 100%.


    With the tap of a single button, you can change the lighting in your entire home. Scenes let you link together all of your lights (and appliances) to create dramatic moods or efficient groupings.

    Energy efficient.

    Even with all of the advanced Insteon technology packed into each LED Bulb, Insteon LED Bulb manages to use a mere 9W of electricity and LED Bulb for Recessed Lights a paltry 12W. But that doesn't mean your LED Bulb will be dull - each bulb is as bright as a 60W incandescent light.

    Less Waste

    Insteon LED Bulbs can last a long time - so long that you would need over 50 traditional light bulbs to match the lifespan of just one Insteon LED Bulb. The energy efficient LEDs in each bulb are designed to last up to 52,000 hours. Compare that to just 1,000 hours with a tungsten light bulb.

    Dramatic Energy Savings

    It's hard to imagine, but 20% of the average home energy bill is due to lighting. With each Insteon LED Bulb using only 13% the electricity of a regular incandescent, you can see how the savings can add up. And because Insteon LED Bulbs put out less heat, you'll even save energy on cooling, too.


    When it comes to lighting control, on and off just doesn't cut it. But the move to energy efficient light bulbs like CFLs and LED bulbs has generaly meant that your lights can no longer dim. From the start, Insteon LED Bulbs were designed for dimming. In fact, you can fully brighten and dim Insteon LED Bulbs from any Insteon Wall Switch, Keypad, wireless Mini Remote or even your smartphone.

    Bought 3, 1 defective Review by Marlene
    Bought 3, 1 defective

    Bought 3 and 1 was defective. Returned the defective bulb 2 weeks ago and haven't received my replacement or notification they received it. Smarthome is in Irvine CA and I'm just 300 miles north, not sure why it is taking too long. Instructions were very poor and tech support trainee wasn't any better. Come to find out you can't put them on a schedule and turn them on with a sensor. Seems like straight forward hub logic needs severe improvement. Put one of the bulbs on a schedule and the other on the sensor. Couldn't get the bulb to work properly with the sensor. The status was always yellow. Come to find out they bulb neck is too short so I had to buy an extender at local hardware store. The extender worked like a charm. Too bad the manuals were no help.

    jury's still out Review by slhelper
    jury's still out

    I have two rooms, 1 using the 8-button switch, the other the 6-button switch. I've had problems with these bulbs in the last 3 years or so I've used these. My most recent issue was the 8-button switch died. Upon replacement, all but one bulb worked with it, even tho all 8 worked prior to the switch failure. For being an LED bulb able to last a LONG time, i've probably replaced bulbs 20 times considering I only have 14 bulbs to deal with. Fortunately most have been replaced via warranty.
    When they do work, they work as desired, and can go full bright, or an adjustable level of dimness. Using the switches, I only need to turn on the bulbs desired, vs the full room.

    Won't work w/ non-Insteon Dimmers Review by Mark
    Won't work w/ non-Insteon Dimmers

    The product description on the website is very deceptive. It never states that the product can not be used with a non-Insteon dimmer. When I opened up the container for the bulb it prominently displays a message that states the product can't be used with a non-Insteon dimmer.

    Unfortunately, not reliable Review by Alon M.
    Unfortunately, not reliable

    I am, in general, a very satisfied Smarthome customer and have ordered quite a bit of instead hardware.
    Of all the items ordered, this item has been the least reliable. I ordered 5 of these approximately 3 years ago since we had a complex 4-way switch put in by the previous owner. Unfortunately, I have not been happy with the reliability. One of them died about 6 months in and was replaced. Another one recently died and one is in the process of dying, i.e. showing only very dim LED light. I am aware that the warranty is two years and I am a bit disappointed as I spent $49 per bulb and would expect them to last longer.

    Just doesn't fit Review by Marc
    Just doesn't fit

    I live in a newer home (2014), and we have standard recessed lighting cans in our lanai covered area and under the front porch. These lights are too wide, and rub against the recessed light housing preventing them from making full contact with the receptacle. Seems like such a silly design flaw. Instead, I've used your product for years. This particular items is nothing more than a silly design/engineering miss. Having to return my 4...disappointed.

    Won't fit all recessed lighting Review by Lonnie
    Won't fit all recessed lighting

    Wouldn't fit my recessed lighting. These are larger than an interior spotlight.. more the size of the exterior spotlights. Will be returning them.

    Review of 2674-222 Review by Dissappointed
    Review of 2674-222

    Totally unusable. These lights emit a constant whine when not on full power. It's not loud but it is certainly audible. I thought about putting them in my hallway where people only pass through but it is just too loud, even there.

    On full power they have a great color but I paid a premium for dimming bulbs and they are unusable. Smarthome offered to refund immediately but honestly, I'm cautious about buying anything else now - I should have trusted the reviews.

    Review of 2674-222

    I realized (after the fact) that my recessed lighting needed to accomodate a PAR38 bulb for this to work. I ordered a new fitting and am now using the bulb. It networked easily to my ISY and is working well. We are setting it at 25% against a brick fireplace.

    This gets Stan's seal of approval. This should be enough for you to make the purchase.

    Review of 2674-222 Review by Tony
    Review of 2674-222

    The color is great. They're also brighter than the bulbs I replaced, so I went to set them to ramp up to only 70%. That's when I noticed every single one makes a quiet but audible whine when dimmed. The 2672-222 bulb has a note about a buzzing noise when dimmed, but not the recessed light, so I was hoping that was solved. Guess not.

    One of the four I purchased also has a slight flicker that is easily noticed when looking at a plain surface. I was going to replace all of the lights in my house with these, but now I'm not so sure.
