The INSTEON LampLinc Dimmer (Dual-Band) is a full-featured plug-in lamp dimmer that can be remotely controlled by a Mini Remote, KeypadLinc, or any other INSTEON controller. This simple-to-use plug-in dimmer has advanced features like an adjustable ramp rate that slowly brings the lamp on, at preset dim level that stores your preferred choice of 32 brightness levels when turning the lamp on initially, as well as local control, so you can still use the lamp's built-in switch to turn the light on and off. This LampLinc is made to be plugged into any wall outlet. This dimmer can control incandescent loads up to 300 watts. Until now, lamp and appliance controllers only received INSTEON signals via the powerline. Now with the dual-band LampLinc you not only receive RF commands directly from any RF INSTEON component (Mini Remote, Thermostat adapter), but the device doubles as an Access Point - relaying RF and powerline signals to other INSTEON-compatible devices in the home. Never come home to a dark house again. Install an automation controller to schedule any LampLinc or any other INSTEON-compatible device to turn on or off at any specific time or even at sunrise and sunset.
Easy To Install The LampLinc is so easy to plug-in and set up that you'll want to add LampLinc dimmers to all of your lamps. Just unplug the lamp, plug the lamp into the bottom outlet of the dimmer, and plug in the dimmer where the lamp was plugged in. Link the dimmer to an INSTEON controller using the Plug & Tap programming method, and you'll be able to turn the lamp on and off, brighten and dim.
Brightness Levels You can adjust the brightness level of the controlled lamp by pressing and holding the on or off button of an INSTEON controller. The brightness level can also be adjusted on the module via the Up/Down buttons. Adjusting brightness levels is especially helpful when you want to create a theatrical experience when watching your favorite movie. Use a Mini Remote or pair your universal remote control with an IRLinc, and you won't even have to leave the comfort of your couch to dim the light. When you turn on the LampLinc dimmer, it automatically comes on to full brightness. Setting the preset on level will make the dimmer stop at your preferred choice of 32 brightness levels. With software you can control brightness levels in one percent increments for ultimate flexibility. This is a great feature for your bedroom to set the mood.
Adjustable Ramp Rate Adjust the speed at which the controlled light turns on or off, also known as the ramp rate. For example, you may want the lamp in the kids' room to turn on instantly so you can see where you're walking. Alternatively, you may want the lamp in the master bedroom to ramp up in a soft, gentle fashion so that you're not blinded when you wake up in the morning. The ramp rate is adjustable between 0.1 seconds and 9 seconds if programmed locally; this can be done by using the convenient Up/Down buttons located on the module. The ramp rate can extend up to 8 minutes (for a simulated sunrise or sunset) if programmed remotely. This is a great addition to your morning alarm, slowly turning the light on to help you wake up. If you have programmed a slow ramp rate and want to make the lamp come on instantly, simply double tap the controller's on button. To turn the light off quickly, double tap the controller's off button.
Scene Lighting Scenes allow you to set unique lighting levels across multiple lights and trigger them with a single command. Because the LampLinc 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 on any INSTEON controller. These are elegant features usually found only in systems costing tens of thousands of dollars and requiring extensive rewiring of your home. All scene member lights can ramp to your independently desired brightness levels at your chosen ramp rate(s), one set of lights can dim slowly while another set turns off instantly, all controlled with one command from one button.
Non-Volatile Memory All LampLinc Dimmer settings are stored in non-volatile memory and are not lost during power failures. Additionally, in the event of a power loss, the LampLinc Dimmer's lamp will return to its last brightness level when power is restored.
