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


Irvine, CA - July 17, 2008 - 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.
