    Smart Item Dimmer Review by kelvin
    Smart Item Dimmer

    Works great for all dimming functions in the house where you need an outlet that controls dimming. I used this in my apartment to dimm a switch controlled lamp. Another great insteon item.

    Smarthome Dimmer Outlet

    Performance of this Outlet Dimmer is consistent with the product description. This is a one of a kind smart item as I use it to control the brightness/dimness of my night lights throughout the house. No more looking for bulbs that are too bright or dim as I now control that option. Great item and smart buy!

    Fast shipping. Another great invention for mankind. A dimmable outlet for a lamp, and you also get a regular 110 outlet. Another great addition to the family.

    You can't beat this item. Now I can place this in areas where a regular
    nite light wouldn't be able to turn off/on due to lack of light. Now I just create a scene and control the timer, and the brightness/dim level of the nite light. Great addition to the family.

    DIMMER OUTLET Review by kelvin

    Great item. Works well but should have included an extra magnetic Outlet Dimmer Key. This is my 6 one and they all work well especially the exact dimming at night. I have them tied to Amazon Alexa and so I simply tell Alexa to dime it to 20%, 10% etc. Works great. Insteon is a leader in the DIY smarthome conversion.

    Will Not Completely Dim LEDs Review by Glenn
    Will Not Completely Dim LEDs

    I added this outlet to a string of 21, 6W LED lights. It will not dim them all the way off. I tried it with a 14W led lamp bulb and it too will not dim to off. I tried both the string lights and light bulb with a 2477D dimmer and it works fine. This outlet needs additional engineering and re-design. It is not ready to be sold to customers

    I am sorry for any inconvenience. If the wattage of the LED bulbs you are using are too low then yes, you may see that the lights will not fully turn off. As this is a dimmer as opposed to a true relay, there will still be a minimum pass through. This can lead to a soft glow still emitting from the strip of low wattage bulb.

    Insteon outlet responder Review by Richard
    Insteon outlet responder

    Rather than telling users that you can only connect a lamp to the outlet, tell them the maximum number of watts that can be connected.

    Thank you for your feedback. The capacity is 300Watts. I will check to make sure it is added specifications page as well as the product details.

    Versatile Outlet Review by Steven
    Versatile Outlet

    I currently have four of these outlets in operation between 3-4 years. One outlet stopped functioning after it it was out of warranty and had to be replaced after first contacting tech support to see if a reset could be tried. It's replacement is fine after 3 years. Two outlets were purchased for turning on night table lamps using a mini remote as there was no ceiling light installed to control by a wall switch. Using a mini remote was a good solution to dim or operate the lamps to avoid entering/ exiting a dark room. Ramp speed of dimming or brightening can be controlled through the app for slow to instant on/off.

    The second pair of outlets were also used for night table lamps somthey could be dimmed using mini remotes. Each remote was programmed to control both outlets. Using the Hub, a scenes were created to automatically turn on the light at dusk and go off in the evening if not over-ridden using the remote.

    Top outlet is dimmable and controlled by the remote while bottom outlet is always switch on. Good arrangement for appliances like an alarm clock or phone that you always want to receive power.

    Installation instructions were easy to follow. Programming instructions for linking controllers (mini remote) to responders (outlet) could be improved as reading them thoroughly before the first attempt still was slightly confusing. Through a short trial and error period and repitition, linking to the remotes, assigning scenes to buttons on the remote became easier. Tech support staff was fairly easy to reach and the tech rep was helpful in guiding me through making a complex scene of multiple outlets and dimmer switches. Like the ability to have lights come on automatically or control remotely from anywhere via SmartPhone app via a Hub. Satisfied with function, performance, and appearance of these outlets.

    Not quite as advertised Review by JW San Diego
    Not quite as advertised

    One of my biggest pet peeves is a bedroom with no ceiling light but an outlet switched via a wall switch. As long as no one turns off the light manually, the wall switch will turn on the lights when you enter the room. If you turn off the lamp manually and then get up in the morning and leave it off (which you will if it is light out), the wall switch will then no longer turn on the lamp. This can make it dark when entering a room with no ceiling light.

    I thought when reading about this outlet it would solve that problem. It really doesn't solve it at all. Once you link a wall light switch to the top outlet, yes the lamp can turn the top outlet on and off. But if the lamp is turned off (and the outlet turned off as expected), the wall switch can only then later turn on the outlet, not the lamp. You need to leave the lamp on and never turn it off manually.

    My solution is that when turning off the light when in bed, you turn off the outlet instead using an Insteon remote located at the base of the lamp. The result is that whether you turn on the lamp from the wall switch or the remote, the light will always turn on or off as expected. It double the cost of course since the remote switches are about $50.

    LED and Insteon 2472 Outlet Review by Bob
    LED and Insteon 2472 Outlet

    I have a 2472 outlet and recently tried to plug in a LED lighted curio cabinet. The Insteon outlet started oscillating on/off very quickly. Ended up solving the problem by adding a 22ohm resistor that I had used with old X-10 modules and compact fluorescents for flickering. Essentially this just added a load to the module along with the almost non-existent load from the LED and it took care of the problem. Also, solving the short prongs when using the magnetic adapter, I used a 2 prong with ground adapter that added longer prongs and then added the cabinet light plug to the adapter. Works great.
