How the RemoteLinc 2 Keypad, 8 Scene Works

Each key is divided into two scene controls (left hand side is one scene, right hand side is another). Tapping the scene controller toggles between ON and OFF. Pressing and holding the scene controller will send BRIGHT or DIM commands depending upon the previous command (e.g., Last command ON, press and hold DIM. Last command OFF, press and hold BRIGHT). The LED status indicator blinks green for ON commands and red for OFF commands. The LED indicator will also let you know if a device did not acknowledge the command.

Indigo Integration

Of course, Indigo supports the entire line of INSTEON Mini Remote devices which means the possibilities increase exponentially of what you can do with the INSTEON Mini Remote. Be sure and read the INSTEON Mini Remote Wiki from the Indigo site for guidance on how to interpret and use the INSTEON Mini Remote button pushes in your Indigo/INSTEON system.

Required Accessories

A Type A to Micro-B USB Charging Cable is required to charge the INSTEON Mini Remote devices. With the cable you can charge RemoteLinc 2 by plugging the cable into a computer USB port or into a USB power adapter. Remember, the INSTEON Mini Remote is an RF only device, so you will need at least one dual-band INSTEON device or an AccessPoint to convert the RF signals to power line signals. Of course, if you have your Indigo/INSTEON system already in place, then you most likely already meet this qualification.
