Essential Info

This high-tech yet easy to use dimmer takes your home into the future by giving you the ability to set the speed at which the light fades On and Off, a preset on-level for always remembering your favorite brightness level and best of all, being able to remotely control the dimmer from a handheld remote, wall keypad, computer or mobile phone (controllers are sold separately). With high-end quality, at-a-glance LED status and remote controllability, you'll see how easy it is to create your own home of the future.

The SwitchLinc installs like a traditional wall switch with the exception of requiring connection to neutral. Most homes have a neutral wire available (see How to check if I have neutral wires?). If you do not have a neutral wire available, use the SwitchLinc 2-Wire Dimmer. Once installed setup is quick and easy using simple programming.

SwitchLinc now supports 100-277VAC and 50/60Hz electrical systems, enabling INSTEON users outside of the US the opportunity to utilize our most advanced in-wall dimmer switch.

Scene Lighting Scenes allow you to control multiple lights, rooms or even the whole home with a single command. Because the SwitchLinc Dimmer 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 elegant features are usually found only in systems costing tens of thousands of dollars and requiring extensive rewiring of your home. All member lights can ramp to your independently desired brightness levels at your chosen ramp rate(s). So one set of lights can dim slowly, while another set turns off instantly, all controlled with one command from one button. If you want to control multiple scenes from one controller, we recommend the INSTEON KeypadLinc Dimmer.
