Insteon updates the Outdoor Plug-In On/Off Module to include Dual-Band

February 14, 2013

IRVINE, Calif. - Insteon®, manufacturer of the best-selling, most reliable home automation and control technology, today announced an update to the popular Insteon Outdoor Plug-In On/Off Module, now with the addition of dual-band Insteon technology. Featuring the same great design and reliability as the single-band Outdoor Plug-In On/Off Module, the new dual-band version increases Insteon signal propagation and enables placement in areas where a power line-only signal might not have previously reached.

“Once you’re hooked on Insteon, you start looking for every light and device you can control. Our new dual-band Outdoor On/Off Module is going to let homeowners control anything they can plug-in outside without worrying about electrical phases or signal bridges. Dual-band really makes Insteon the most reliable home networking technology.”

Joe Dada, CEO, Insteon

The dual-band Insteon Outdoor Plug-in On/Off Module can control any plug-in light or appliance including non-dimmable fluorescents up to 15A.  Weather rated for outdoor conditions, the module has been tested for reliable operation in temperatures from -4ºF to 122ºF (-20ºC to 50ºC) and its rugged NEMA 3R-rated enclosure provides protection against falling rain and ice formation.

The dual-band Insteon Outdoor Plug-In On/Off Module retails for $49.99.  For more information about Insteon or the dual-band INSTEON Outdoor Plug-In On/Off Module, visit www.insteon.com/outdoor

With its simple installation and setup process and trustworthy communication, Insteon has become the industry’s premier remote control networking technology. Plug-in modules and in-wall switches make it possible to add wireless control to any appliance in a home or business without having to hire a contractor. By making every networked device talk to each other via radio frequencies and existing electrical wiring, Insteon eliminates the need for custom wiring.

SmartLabs Introduces SwitchLinc - Insteon 220V Outdoor On / Off Switch Kit: Helps Consumers Decrease Energy Consumption and Save Money

July 17, 2008

IRVINE, Calif. - SmartLabs, Inc. announces the release of SwitchLinc - Insteon 220V Outdoor On / Off Switch Kit, a switch that will control high current appliances up to 30 Amps, as part of an Insteon home automation network. Controlling appliances such as such as an electric water heater, pool pump or range hood, you can significantly limit the amount of energy being consumed, saving resources and saving you money. For example, most pool pump timers have only a single on time and off time during the day; setting the pool pump on for more cycles and shorter durations will reduce energy consumption while maintaining cleanliness.

"We're excited about the introduction of another green energy saving product that will allow consumers to cut energy consumption of high current appliances. Controlling electric water heater usage will significantly decrease energy use and pool pump control can reduce energy consumption up to 50%" says Laurie Maroni, Vice President of Marketing at SmartLabs.

"Insteon products save energy, time & money and our customers love the reliability & ease of use of our products". This kit comes conveniently pre-assembled in a weatherproof housing built for outdoor applications. Simply connect the wires and mount the box. You can turn an appliance on or off locally, just as you would a SwitchLinc - Insteon Dimmer Switch. Alternatively, any Insteon-compatible device can be used for remote control. It will also work with existing X10 products, providing an upgrade path to an Insteon network. Insteon home automation technology provides customized control and communication of lighting and appliances throughout the interior and exterior of a home. Insteon products let you create a network of controlled devices and scenes that make life convenient, fun and energy efficient.
