Remote Control Your Lights

Plug-in Easy Banner

Plug-in Easy

Remote control lights can be simple. Representing the lowest barrier to entry, plug-in devices connect your lamp and the wall outlet, functioning as a remote control for the attached light. New technology even allows you to connect to your smartphone, Google Home, and Alexa. You leave to work, you leave the switch on your lamp permanently in the On position - the plug-in module will deal with turning the lamp on and off. In just a few moments, control a few lamps in your living room, bedroom or any location where your light fixtures plug into a power outlet. You can control it from anywhere in the world.

Remote control lights do not mean you are pressing a remote control to turn your lights off and on, although you can. It's far more than that. Remote control lights is like having the ability to control and access your home from anywhere in the world using a smartphone, laptop, Apple Watch, Siri, and other voice assistants. Remote control lights can be simple. Even if you are home and not at a "remote location" you can access your smart home products with a simple integration process.

Dimmer Module

Plug-in Dimmer

Dimmable Lights

If your lamps use dimmable bulbs, a plug-in dimmer module lets you not only control if the light is on or off, but the brightness, too. Do check your bulbs, though, as many CFL and LED bulbs are not compatible with dimmers.

Non-dimming Lights

Most bulbs purchased today are not inherently compatible with dimmers. Chances are, if you use CFL or LED bulbs, an On/Off Module would be a better choice. You won’t get nifty dimming features but you also won’t have to
replace all of your bulbs.

Add Some Control

Plug-in devices on their own don’t go very far; you still need a way to actually control your newly-controllable lamps. Depending on your needs, you can use something as simple as a wireless remote or something as advanced as your computer.

Control With Alexa or Google Home

Voice activation in smart home products is an emerging trend. In the Alexa and Google Home app, there is a Smart Home section for users to set up their devices. Amazon and many other companies are making it easier to integrate smart products. While you can use the Insteon Remote Control, you can also use a voice assistant. "Alexa, "Let there be light" then the lights turn on. If you plan on using Insteon devices set a scene inside of the Insteon App and it will automatically sync into the Alexa app. Show it off to your friend or use it during your favorite Saturday Morning Television. Use remote light control with your favorite home assistant

Wire-in Benefits

Taking it up a notch, wire-in devices give you control of hardwired lighting throughout your home. Most wire-in devices take the form of light switches but others are available including multi-button keypads and wall outlets. Just like with plug-in modules, multiple types are available based on the type of lighting you intend to control - primarily dimmable and non-dimmable. While a plug-in module can be installed in seconds without any experience, wire-in devices require a bit more effort. Most home owners can install a replacement connected light switch in less than 20 minutes but your mileage may vary depending on your home’s wiring, your familiarity with household electrical and the sophistication of your automation desires.

Advanced Wire-in

When you’re ready to jump off into the deep end of wire-in control, there are all manner of devices that give you control of less-than-standard lighting. These devices are usually for the automation enthusiast who is already controlling their home with a smartphone or computer but that doesn’t preclude their use in more humble setups. Like wall switches and outlets, these devices require familiarity with household wiring and may take more effort to install than simply replacing a light switch. If you’re imagination is open to the possibilities, these devices offer a completely different level of custom home automation. But let's say you're not the handy person in your family or you don't know anyone. You can use our resources, or Youtube, but we also offer professional installation services that might be a little bit cheaper than hiring someone.
