This simple-to-use plug-in dimmer has advanced features like an adjustable ramp rate that slowly brings the lamp on, a 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.

What does Dual-Band Mean?

Most first generation INSTEON lamp and appliance devices 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, INSTEON TriggerLinc, etc.) but the device doubles as an AccessPoint - relaying RF and powerline signals to other INSTEON-compatible devices in the home. Think of the possibilities and flexibility you’ll now have for setting up your Indigo/INSTEON home automation system!

Easy To Install

The INSTEON LampLinc Dimmer (Dual-Band) 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 or just go to INDIGO and do the quick and easy Define/Synch process there. You'll then be able to turn the lamp on and off, brighten and dim from other INSTEON control devices and/or from schedules and “triggers” you have defined within Indigo .

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 LampLinc Dimmer itself via the Up/Down buttons. 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 Indigo, of course, you can control brightness levels in one percent increments for ultimate flexibility.

Adjustable Ramp Rate

Adjust the speed at which the LampLinc Dimmer light turns on or off, also known as the ramp rate. 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. 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.

Red/Green Status LED

The Status LED is used for setup programming. It is now located at the top of the module for easier viewing when programming or troubleshooting.

Non-Volatile Memory

All INSTEON LampLinc Dimmer (Dual-Band) 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.
