Features

Overview: This LampLinc dimmer switch lets you remotely control the power and brightness of an incandescent lamp with a two or three prong plug. It should not be used with halogen or fluorescent lights, or with incandescent lights less than 10 watts.

INSTEON System: This line of lighting and appliance control utilizes INSTEON technology, using existing power wires as well as wireless radio frequency (RF) to send home automation control signals to INSTEON devices throughout the house. You must have at least two INSTEON Access point couplers/signal repeaters (item number 7262443P) installed to control the system in a typical residence (2-phase wiring).

Operation: This dimmer module has no built-in method of control; it must be controlled by another INSTEON device. There are 32 brightness levels and the light's On-level, brightness when first turned on, is programmable.

Ramp Rate: You can program the speed at which the light turns on or off; known as the ramp rate. For example, you may want the light in the stairwell to turn on instantly so you can see where you're walking. Alternatively, you may want the light in the master bathroom to ramp up in a soft, gentle fashion so you're not blinded in the middle of the night. The ramp rate is adjustable between 0.1 second and 9 seconds and is programmed using an INSTEON controller, which is also used to control this dimmer module.

Maximum Load: The 2456D3 dimmer switch can handle a maximum load of 300 watts.

X10 Ready: You can program a primary X10 address into the 2456D3 and control it with an existing X10 system.

Pass-Through Outlet: In addition to the INSTEON-controlled outlet, the LampLinc has a non-controlled outlet on the front face.

A nice little helper.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This little device is so nice as I can now dim my lamp to a nice low setting for a romantic mood or just a little brighter to see but not all the way on or off. It is such a neat product for the price I am going to get more of these to put on more lamps.
