    Mini Remote

    Add a Mini Remote and you can control your Dimmer Outlet without wires, anywhere in your home. Great for night stands, end tables and more.


    Insteon sensors automatically control you outlet using motion, doors, windows, water leaks or even detection of smoke.

    Review of 2472DLAL

    Great product, responds consistently. Longevity-so far so good at 6 mos. for the oldest. One wish would be that rather than simply cutting out without the "key," the unit should simply revert to non-dimming, relay operation.

    Review of 2472DLAL

    I've got 6 of these going and I'm quite happy with them. I do think an improvement would be for them to default to on/off behavior rather than dimmer in the absence of key, rather than just not working.

    This is a great advance over the plug in devices hanging on the walls all over the house.
