    Every Insteon Keypad is a powerful combination of wall switch and remote control. Replace your existing switch with the power to control devices throughout your home.

    On/Off or Dimming

    Depending on your lighting fixtures and electrical load needs, chose a Keypad that dims or doesn't and be sure that either can handle whatever you throw at them.

    6 or 8 Buttons

    Insteon Keypads come in both 6 button and 8 button configurations, letting you control 5 or 8 devices at minimum.


    Purpose-made to support easy activation of Insteon scenes throughout your home, our Wall Keypads excel at giving you one-button control over your entire home.

    Multiple devices in one.

    An Insteon Wall Keypad is a unique blend of wall switch and multi-button remote control. When you replace your existing wall switch with an Insteon Keypad, you keep control of your light fixture while simultaneously adding remote control of other Insteon devices.

    Explation Switch

    Wall Switch Replacement

    The On and Off buttons take the place of your original wall switch. Tapping them controls your lights just as you would expect. On the Dimmer Keypad, pressing and holding even brightens and dims your lights.

    Explation Scenes

    Multi-button Remote Control

    The four or seven scene 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.

    Remote control from your smartphone.

    With the Insteon Hub, your Wall Keypad takes on new life. It's never been easier to configure your keypad for a myriad of scenes. And best of all, you're presented with a virtual keypad for remote control - letting you control the keypad exactly as if you were standing in front of it.

    Sub Hero
    As you were

    As if You Were There

    Tap on a keypad from the Insteon app and you're presented with a virtual replica - preserving your custom button labels and all.



    Insteon Keypads beg to be used with scenes and the Insteon Hub makes the process painless. Tap a keypad button on your smartphone and watch the action happen. Use the Insteon Hub to create and configure your scenes, too.



    Add grace and elegance to your lighting by customizing your Dimmer Keypad's On Level and Ramp Rate. You can set a custom default brightness with On Level and specify a dimming duration with Ramp Rate.



    Does your Keypad control your outdoor lights? Why not put it on a schedule to turn on and off with the path of the sun. With the Insteon Hub, you can set daily schedules for your Insteon Keypads.

    Remote control from another Insteon device.

    There's no reason your Insteon Keypad can't be controlled by as many devices as it controls. Insteon Keypads function just like Insteon Wall Switches when it comes to remote control compatibility - sharing everything from multi-way switching to remote control.

    Remote Switches

    3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8+ Way Switching

    When it comes to multi-way switching, nothing is as flexible as Insteon. And when you add an Insteon Keypad into the mix, the possibilities explode exponentially. Without needing to install any extra wiring, your Keypad can participate in 3-, 4-, 5+ way switching with other Insteon Wall Switches and Keypads. You can mix and match keypads and switches to your heart's content.

    Remote Mini

    Anywhere Keypad

    While you can install an Insteon Keypad anywhere you have a light switch, sometimes the hard-wired locations in your home just aren't as convenient as your nightstand or coffee table. With Mini Remote, you can place a "wireless keypad" anywhere in your home and control your keypad from whatever comfortable or cozy location you best see fit.

    Remote Sensors

    Insteon Sensors

    Adding a motion sensor to turn your keypad into an occupancy switch is easy. But why not take it further and use the scene buttons for informational purposes? Link all of the door and window sensors in your home to a button and instantly see if a door or window is open before you head for bed. Same works for the garage door - and with the Garage Door Kit, you can close the garage door if you've accidentally left it open.

    Make it yours.

    Give your keypad meaning by replacing the generic buttons with custom labelled buttons. We offer pre-printed buttons or for those that have more unique requirements, a laser engraving option.

    Custom Buttons

    Custom Button Etching

    While you might be able to remember that "Scene B" turns on the living room lights and "Scene C" closes the garage door, your guests and your significant other will thank you for properly labeling your custom keypads. Large buttons can fit up to 28 letters of text, small buttons up to 14 letters of text.

    Custom Set

    Best of the Best

    You know the age-old adage, "there's nothing original under the sun?" We thought as much when we started seeing the same custom buttons ordered again and again. We've taken the 50 most popular custom-etched buttons and compiled them into a cost-effective kit.

    Custom Plates

    Wall Plates

    Frame your new Insteon Keypad in a color-matched screwless wall plate. Available in one- to four-gang sizes in White, Ivory, Light Almond and Almond.

    Solid device, easy to use Review by Scott
    Solid device, easy to use

    We have five keypads in our house right now. The wife loves the fact that she can just hit a button and groups of lights will turn on/off. I've configured each keypad with a "panic" button that will turn on every controlled light in the house, which my wife loves for when she's home alone. Our nieces and nephews just love pushing the buttons and watching lights go on and off all over the house.

    Results Review by Christopher

    I’ve had this controller for a few months. Yes, it works. Comments and questions:

    The buttons are not quite aligned. Think of Scrabble tiles. Left-right and up-down they are ok, I.e. the gaps. But they aren’t flat. They tilt. Not great.

    Technically, the four smaller buttons don’t change state when the controller changes the load. For example, the living room light is mapped to a smaller button. But that same light is also programmed to come on at a certain time. When it does, the button doesn’t light up. It lights up only when pressed.

    They were easy to map. It is a nice product. I just installed the laser etch buttons. They look nice.

    6-button relay switch Review by Garland
    6-button relay switch

    These dual-band switches are more robust and reliable than the older V2 switches that I replaced. They work well with the Hub and App as well as with my Alexa devices. They link to my older V2 gear and mini remotes with few or no glitches. In a 2-gang installation, downrating has NOT been an issue. I'm highly satisfied.

    SmartHome should be nicer to their customers ... Review by Marc
    SmartHome should be nicer to their customers ...

    Switches are great, shipping speed was fine.
    Having said that ... I ordered 2 of these using the mobile site becasue i noticed one of my oldest KPL's was dead on my way out the door so I thought I'd also replace its same aged partner at the same time. First the mobile site is tough to use and navigate, but I was committed because I had a dead switch. I finally got the order completed and checked status on my laptop a couple of days later only to find there was a 2 pack available that would have saved me about 10%.

    Maybe this was a mobile app thing, maybe I was just in a hurry, but wouldn't it be great for a company I have a 12+ year relationship with to just give me the quantity discount?

    dual band switch flickers Review by Stephen
    dual band switch flickers

    i installed insteon switches throughout my house a year or 2 ago. i have about 50 switches. maybe 8-10 of them are dual band. a few of the lights flickered or flashed on/off over the last few years & i wasn't sure the cause for quite a while. after buying this switch, i realize that the dual-band devices i have are incredibly susceptible to insteon traffic. the light flickers a ton when insteon traffic is on the system (even if it isn't intended for the load of this switch).

    given this shortcoming, i find this product fairly pathetic. i will be returning & hoping for a power-line only version.

    Review of 2487S

    Great for use as an entry-way station, or master bedroom station for multiple Insteon functions from a single location. Installation can be a bit difficult into multi-switch wall boxes because of the number of wires present, as the KeypadLinc has quite heavy wiring. Easily integrated into a whole-house set-up via UDI's ISY series controllers.
