Change the mood of your home's lighting with a single button press Replace a switch and get control of other scenes and devices BoosterLinc Technology is built in
Nearly everything you see or feel is affected by lighting. So when it comes to the lighting in your home, you shouldn't have to make compromises. With the KeypadLinc 6-X10 Keypad/Dimmer, you won't. This in-wall controller will control individual lights and triggers whole-house mood lighting "scenes" with the touch of a button. Plus, it gives you all the control and flexibility found in our standard KeypadLinc 6.This X10 keypad/dimmer communicates with all X10-compatible receivers over the wiring that's already in your home, so there's no need to retrofit the wiring.

You can combine the flexibility and powerful features of the KeypadLinc 6 X10 keypad/dimmer with the the performance-enhancing features of the BoosterLinc Plug-In PLC Signal Booster 4827/BoosterLinc-Plug-In-Signal-Booster-X10-X-10-Amplifier/p.aspx>, a Smarthome favorite. With a single-gang footprint and 100% compatibility with standard decora-style plates, the KeypadLinc 6 with BoosterLinc Technology integrates style and performance into a single unit. Scene Lighting - Change the Lighting to Match Your MoodScenes allow you to control multiple lights, rooms or even the whole home with a single X10 command. All member lights will ramp to your independently desired levels at your chosen ramp rate(s). Because the KeypadLinc 6 can be a member of up to 64 scenes (i.e. "Movie Time," "Party," "Romance," etc.), you'll be able to launch various mood lighting scenarios with a single button press. These are elegant features usually found only in systems costing thousands of dollars and requiring extensive rewiring of your home. To create the equivalent of scenes with other X10 switches, you'll need a separate automation controller, which adjusts each light one-at-a-time, taking longer, increasing the likelihood of errors due to signal collisions and creating a chaotic series of lighting adjustments.Adjustable On Level / Resume DimEach KeypadLinc with Dimmer can easily be programmed to come "on" to any brightness level from 3% to 100%. A closet light might be best at 100% brightness while you may choose to have your living room lights come on at 50% saving money. Of course, you can easily brighten either circuit to full on. Another "on level" option is to have the light come on to its last on level, this is known as Resume Dim. Programming can be done at the keypad or with an X10 transmitter.Adjustable Fade RateYou can adjust the rate at which the light turns on or off, also 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. Conversely, 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 seconds and 9 minutes (for a simulated sunrise or sunset).DimmableYou can adjust the brightness level locally by pressing and holding the top or bottom of SwitchLinc. You can also adjust the brightness remotely by sending it standard, X10 dims and brights or by sending it a Preset Dim command. If you need to control a fluorescent light fixture, consider the SwitchLinc 2-Way Switch 23883W/X10-X-10-Switch/p.aspx>.X10 Preset Dim CompatibleWhen desired, you can send a single X10 "preset-dim" command (used by many intelligent controllers) to KeypadLinc with Dimmer and it will adjust itself directly and smoothly to your desired level.Control - Options, Options, Options.....These professional-quality controllers communicate with all X10-compatible receivers - SwitchLincs, LampLincs, PowerLincs - you name it. And, they do it over wiring that's already installed in your home. No retrofit wiring is required! Once the components are in place, simply press one KeypadLinc button, and all the lights programmed to respond will create a lighting scene that you design. Give each scene a name (i.e. "Movietime," "Dinnertime," "Party," etc.) and you can recall that scene in an instant! You can also use KeypadLincs to send commands to your audio and video components when teamed up with our IRLinc - X10 to IR controller 1623/X10-to-IR-Linc-X10-X-10-Signals-Control-Infrared-IR-Equipment/p.aspx>. These features are a must for anyone that entertains guests.Flexible SetupKeypadLincs give you tremendous flexibility in setup. First, the buttons don't need to occupy sequential addresses, like many other keypads. Other wall-mounted keypads only provide on/off control, each KeypadLinc button can perform up to four different functions thanks to a programmable "toggle" ability. Press once for ON, press again for OFF. Press and hold to brighten, press and hold again to dim. If you prefer, turn off the toggle feature to send the same command every time. In key press mode you can even decide whether you wish it to send an address, a command or both (e.g. A6, AON or A6AON) Best of all, all the settings are electronically set (no code wheels!) and held in non-volatile EEPROM memory.Monitor Other DevicesThe buttons illuminate when ON signals are sent and when signals are detected from other sources on the powerline. KeypadLinc also allows you to monitor lights in other rooms, this feature is incredibly useful if you want to control lights that aren't easily seen from the location, like those in basements, garages, attics, etc.Fully X10 CompatibleKeypadLincs can be controlled from any X10 transmitter. KeypadLinc also responds to all the standard X10 commands. Pre-printed Labels & Custom LabelsEver been to a home with a very expensive lighting system and still couldn't figure out how to control the lights? At Smarthome we believe every keypad needs to be labeled. Several pages of pre-printed labels are included with every unit - both graphical and text. You can personalize your labels by downloading a word document template and create your own custom labels (e.g. Scott's Lamp). You simply pop the button cap off, replace the label and pop it back on.Night / Status LightA small, subtle green LED at the top of KeypadLinc makes it easy to find in a dark room. The LED blinks in response to X10 signals making installation and troubleshooting simple.Easy to Install and Set UpKeypadLinc wires in like a standard wall switch, with an additional connection to a neutral wire. To set the X10 address, press and hold the set-button for 5 seconds then send it the X10 address from any X10 compatible transmitter. To set the primary on level, adjust it to the desired brightness level and single tap the set button. To set the ramp rate, brighten the light to a level corresponding to the desired ramp rate and double tap the set button. All features/options can be set up remotely using an X10 transmitter (except the base address).Status ConfirmationYou can poll the status of KeypadLinc for an instant status report, including brightness level. This feature is essential when you need to know if the device being controlled is on or off, especially when you are controlling it via the web or telephone.3- & 4-Way ReadySimply add a SwitchLinc Multi-way Companion 2382.html> to build a 3-way circuit, add two of them to build a 4-way circuit, add three for 5-way, etc. The multi-way companions simply connect to the yellow wire on KeypadLinc.Create Virtual 3-Way Circuits through X10 TransmissionDo you wish you had a 3- or 4-way circuit, but your switches are not wired that way? Use KeypadLinc with Dimmer to turn other lights on (simply program both KeypadLincs/SwitchLincs to the same base address) Then, assuming you would still like to control the two circuits independently, program independent scene addresses into each KeypadLinc/SwitchLinc.Low Voltage/Ceiling Fan ControlKeypadLinc can control low voltage halogen (e.g. track) or other low voltage lights. (Note: works with most magnetic and dimmable electronic transformers.) Also, KeypadLinc can control your ceiling fan. (Note: some motors may produce a subtle humming sound.)
Common products that may interfere with your INSTEON or X10 system:
Televisions, stereo components, satellite and cable receivers
Computers, monitors, and accessories
Computer UPS's (Uninterruptable Power Supplies)
Power supplies for laptops and cell phones
Fluorescent and HID lighting
Motorized devices like refrigerators, pumps, air conditioners
Low-voltage lighting that use light-weight solid-state transformers
Here is how to test if an electrical device is causing problems:
1. Unplug the device (don't just turn it off)
2. Re-try controlling the receiver module that is experiencing poor communications to determine if it is now working better.
a. If the controlled product begins working after the electrical device is unplugged, then install a FilterLinc on that electrical device.
