The New Dual-Band Insteon Keypad Dimmer Has Arrived

June 26, 2013

IRVINE, Calif. - Insteon, manufacturers of the best-selling home automation and control technology, today announced an updated scene control keypad and integrated dimmer. This new keypad features dual-band technology which vastly improves communication and a new 100-270V 50/60Hz compatible power supply.

“With six or eight buttons and the ability to control an entire house of devices, our Insteon Keypads are among the most powerful products in the Insteon line. With the addition of dual-band communication, it’s easy to see how Insteon is hands-down, the most reliable home control technology on the market. This is a great addition to our dual-band product family.” Joe Dada, CEO, Insteon.

The dual-band Insteon Keypad Dimmer can control any hard-wired dimmable load including many dimmable LED fixtures. The addition of a red/green status LED makes programming the device much easier and an enhanced power supply makes it possible to use the Keypad in rough power environments from 100-270VAC at 50/60Hz. And of course, Keypad Dimmer maintains the fantastic feature set of its predecessor, offering customizable keypad buttons, color change kits for the button LED backlights and remote control through the Insteon Hub and mobile applications.

The dual-band Insteon Keypad Dimmer retails for $79.99. For more information, visit www.insteon.com.

With its simple installation and setup process and trustworthy communication, Insteon has become the industry’s premier home control networking technology. Plug-in modules and in-wall devices make it possible to add wireless control to any appliance in a home or business without having to hire a contractor.

With Insteon every networked device talks to each other via radio frequency and/or existing electrical wiring which eliminates the need for costly, custom wiring.

July 11, 2011

IRVINE, Calif. - Smarthome announces the release of the new KeypadLinc - Insteon 6-Button Scene Control with On/Off Switch (Dual-Band).

It can also control any load type including fluorescent lights, fans and motors. With the ability to handle up to 277V, KeypadLinc is the perfect energy saving, wireless controller for commercial building automation systems.

"The new KeypadLinc Switch continues our efforts to provide the best, most reliable home automation network to our customers," commented Laurie Maroni, Vice President of Marketing at Smarthome. "The dual-band technology increases the reliability of the user's entire Insteon network, while the added voltage if 277V expands the applications for the product." 

The KeypadLinc - Insteon 6-Button Scene Control Keypad with ON/Off Switch (Dual-Band), which passed stringent certification and beta tests, is currently available for pre-order for $79.99 at Smarthome.com, and is expected to begin shipping in August.

IRVINE, Calif. - Smarthome announces the release of the new OutletLinc Dimmer - Insteon Remote Control Dimmer Outlet (Dual-Band) - the world's first remote controllable dimmable receptacle.

The dual-band technology not only increases the reliability of the dimmer, but for the user's entire Insteon network.

The simple-to-use OutletLinc 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 load sense, so you can still use the lamp's built-in switch to turn the light on and off. It's made to be installed in place of any wall receptacle and controls incandescent loads up to 300 Watts. The OutletLinc Dimmer also features a standard (always on) outlet rated up to 15 Amps.

"The new OutletLinc Dual-Band Dimmer Outlet is the world's first remote controllable, dimmable outlet," commented Laurie Maroni, Vice President of Marketing at Smarthome. "Our patent pending design allows a user to replace any outlet in their home and instantly turn it into a dimmer. OutletLinc is controllable by any Insteon controller such as a wall keypad or even the user's smartphone." 

Safety features include:

  • Tamper resistant outlets
  • Over-heating protection
  • Dimmer Key
