Smarthome™ Introduces New SwitchLinc™ Insteon® Dual-Band Remote Control Dimmer

August 13, 2010

IRVINE, Calif. - Smarthome announces the release of the new SwitchLinc Insteon Dual-Band Remote Control Dimmer. The new product is a full-featured dimmer than 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.

Similar to the best selling SwitchLinc Dimmer, the newest member of the SwitchLinc family has the ability to communicate using both the home's existing electrical wiring and radio frequency (RF). The dual-band technology not only increases the reliability of the dimmer, but for the user's entire Insteon network.

"The new SwitchLinc Dual-Band Dimmer continues our focus to be the best and most reliable home automation network on the market," commented Laurie Maroni, Vice President of Marketing at Smarthome. "We've made a commitment to our customers to provide them with the best automation and lighting controls on the market, and in this case we've taken our best-selling dimmer and made it even better." 

The device offers the ability to set the speed at which the light fades On and Off, preset on-level for always remembering the user's favorite brightness level, and the ability to be remotely controlled from a handheld remote, wall keypad, computer or mobile phone.

The SwitchLinc Insteon Dual-Band Remote Dimmer, which passed stringent certification and beta tests, is currently available for pre-order, starting at $59.99 at Smarthome.com, and is expected to begin shipping in October.
