Smarthome™ Introduces New KeypadLinc™ - Insteon® 6-Button Scene Control Keypad with On/Off Switch (Dual-Band)

July 11, 2011

IRVINE, Calif. - Smarthome announces the release of the new KeypadLinc - Insteon 6-Button Scene Control with On/Off Switch (Dual-Band). The product, which supports voltages from 120 to 277V, is a dual-band alternative to the popular KeypadLinc Relay - Insteon 6-Button Scene Control Keypad with On/Off Switch, which has been a popular seller since its launch in 2008.

The new product is a full-featured keypad that can be remotely controlled by powerline and radio frequency (RF) Insteon controllers, and also doubles as an Access Point, relaying RF and powerline signals to other Insteon-compatible devices. The dual-band technology not only increases the reliability of the controller, but for the user's entire Insteon network.

The simple-to-use KeypadLinc is like having three products in one: an in-wall controller, a 20-amp on/off switch and an Insteon Access Point. 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.
