SmartLabs Releases World's First Insteon-Compatible Outlet

Provides Built-in, Whole-House Custom Remote Control


January 08, 2008

IRVINE, Calif. - As part of its growing line of over 170 Insteon-compatible products, SmartLabs, Inc. announces the launch of its new OutletLinc, the world's first Insteon-compatible electrical outlet. This Decora-style receptacle replaces a standard outlet for easy, Insteon control of almost any plug-in light or appliance.

Controllable from any Insteon-compatible wired or wireless controller, the Insteon Remote-Control Outlet inserts easily into any X10 network. OutletLinc is a duplex receptacle with one always-on outlet and one controlled outlet, which can be added to lighting scenes in seconds. The controlled outlet's 15-amp relay is powerful enough to control most appliances. Available in white, ivory, almond, and black, OutletLinc blends in seamlessly with an Insteon network and any home decor.

"Plug-in modules like the LampLinc are great for remotely controlling devices that might need to be moved, but for an exposed outlet, most people prefer the clean lines of a standard outlet," said Laurie Maroni, SmartLabs VP, Marketing. "The OutletLinc wires in like a standard electrical receptacle, but since the top outlet is controlled by Insteon, people can control pretty much any plug-in device remotely, without connecting a bulky plug-in module."

The Insteon Remote-Control Outlet is available at starting at $45.99.
