    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 but 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.

    Control on Apple Watch

    Of course you can turn your Keypad on and off from the Insteon App on Apple Watch - but you can also activate the scenes configured with your Keypads' buttons: any scenes setup in your home show under the Scenes button.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Five million possible configurations.

    Insteon Wall Keypad is our most customizable product - you can change everything from the color of the buttons and LED backlights to the laser etched text on each button. The possibilities are almost endless.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Review of 2487S

    These switches have been improved over the past 5 years or so. I bought some when Insteon first came out pre dual band days and those had problems. Recently I have moved and bought about 10 of these keypads. I can say that the relays in these are much better than the old ones they seem to have well overrated contacts to avoid the contact fusing issues I had with the 5 year old switches. These also have a higher current rating overall as witnessed by the use of 12 gauge wire, I'm assuming that means 20 amp contacts on the relay? Of the 10 switches I bought in the past year only one has failed, and that was most likely due to a power surge on the day of a very bad wind/lightning storm. I would say these are very reliable now. But Smarthome needs to ship 12 GA wire nuts with these, the yellow nuts it comes with are 14 gauge and wont hold 2 12 gauge wires. The dual band really helps.
