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 product is a great alternative to the popular OutletLinc Relay - INSTEON Remote Control On/Off Outlet, which has been a popular seller since its launch in 2007.


The new product is a full -featured dimmer receptacle 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 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

The OutletLinc INSTEON Dual -Band Remote Dimmer Outlet, 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 at the end of July.

All INSTEON products can be purchased at www.smarthome.com/insteon
