Essential Info

Want to add wireless remote control to your automated window shutters, blinds and projector screens? INSTEON makes it easy. Micro Open/Close Module is the first INSTEON device designed specifically for up/down and open/close motor-controlled appliances. By including the Micro Open/Close module as a part of your INSTEON home automation network, you will enjoy remote control of your shutters, blinds, screens and more. This compact module installs behind your existing switch, giving it full INSTEON automation while retaining local control at the switch by way of sense wires. The patented INSTEON dual-band communication reliably sends signals over existing electrical wires (powerline) in your home and via radio frequency (RF). Micro Open/Close Module is so tiny that it can even be installed as an in-line module within a fixture box (like an In-LineLinc), providing remote control without running legs for a wall switch. INSTEON also offers a Micro Dimmer Module and a Micro On/Off Module.

More Info

INSTEON Micro Open/Close is compatible with latching, single momentary and dual momentary switches. By default, it comes programmed for latching switches such as paddles and toggles; it is easily configured for single and dual momentary switches with a simple reprogramming procedure during installation. Due to its hidden nature, we highly recommend using a home management controller HomeRunner RBI or the free INSTEON app with INSTEON Hub to manage Micro Open/Close.
