How many times have you jumped into bed and forgotten to turn the lights off? With the Insteon ToggleLinc Relay's remote control ability, you can have the convenience of adding a Insteon remote controller to turn off your lights after you get into bed. Never come home to a dark house again: add Insteon Hub and schedule any ToggleLinc Relay or any other Insteon-compatible device to turn on or off at any specific time or even at sunrise and sunset. The ToggleLinc Relay can control a 480-watt incandescent load or 15A resistive load.
Easy To Install
The Insteon ToggleLinc Relay is so easy to install and set up and yet so affordable, you'll want to replace all your switches with ToggleLincs. Just remove the old switch, reattach the existing line, load, ground, and neutral wires using the included wire nuts, and you're done.
Beautiful, High-Quality Construction
Unlike other switches, the Insteon ToggleLinc Relay offers the natural feel of high-end dimmers. The ToggleLinc is designed and manufactured to high-end specifications and goes through over 10 quality-control tests before arriving at your doorstep. The white status LED indicates the current status of the device being controlled. When the ToggleLinc Relay is turned off, the white LED illuminates to help with finding the switch in the dark. Don't forget to order a matching wall plate.
Built with a Quieter Relay
Because the ToggleLinc Relay is built with a much quieter relay than most remote-control ON/OFF switches, it has a click that's more than 80 percent quieter than traditional relay switches. This allows you to control lights and other non-dimmable devices remotely without waking up the baby, annoying other family members, or sending your cat fleeing across the room. The click of the ToggleLinc's internal relay is barely audible.
Generates Less Heat
Unlike triac-based dimmers, Insteon ToggleLinc Relay uses a hard-contact relay to control the load. Other switches may use a semiconductor that absorbs about two volts of power and dissipates the heat through the front of the switch. By using a relay, the switch runs cooler and full voltage gets to the load.
Create Multi-Way Circuits
The ToggleLinc Relay allows you to customize your lighting setup no matter how your house is wired, even if the original switches were never wired for multi-way control. It's simple to create a 3-, 4-, or 5-way circuit. First replace all of the existing switches you want to include in the circuit with ToggleLinc Relays. The main relay must be connected to the standard wires: load, line, neutral, and ground. The secondary relays only need to be connected to line, neutral, and ground. No traveler wires are needed, so it is easy to place one of the relays wherever you need it. Cross-linking all of the companion relays to the master relay is the last step in the process. The end result is a flexible, fully functional multi-way circuit.
Scenes allow you to control multiple lights, rooms or even the whole home with a single command. Because the ToggleLinc can be a member of more than 400 scenes (i.e. "Movie Time," "Party," "Romance," etc.), you'll be able to launch various lighting scenarios with a single button press. These are elegant features usually found only in systems costing tens of thousands of dollars and requiring extensive rewiring of your home. The relays can blend seamlessly in a scene with ToggleLinc Dimmers. So one set of lights connected to an Insteon ToggleLinc Dimmer can slowly dim, while another set connected to the ToggleLinc Relay turns off instantly, all controlled with one command from one button.
All ToggleLinc settings are stored in non-volatile memory and are not lost during power failures.
To ensure network reliability, dual-band Insteon products (such as Access Points) allow RF-only Insteon devices to send (and receive) commands to (and from) power line-only Insteon devices as well as repeat the commands to other RF-only devices. While at least one (1) Dual-band Insteon product is required when using an RF-only Insteon device, at least two (2) Dual-band Insteon products are recommended to ensure reliable communication across common two-phase home wiring systems. For larger applications, it is recommended to install at least one dual-band Insteon product for each 750 - 1,000 Square Feet.
