Check out what some real customers had to say about the SwitchLinc 3 Way Dimmer:

PAUL — MORENO VALLEY, CA Date: 2/27/2010
Review: Nice that they came pre-programmed to work as a pair. Not too difficult to install but bit harder than a normal switch. Pay attention to the instructions as they wire without the traveler wire between them used.

VERLIN — SOUTH BELOIT, IL Date: 1/4/2010
Review: I’m converting my house from X-10 to Insteon. The SwitchLinc 3Way Dimmer was one of the last items I had to install. Wiring was easy and linking to my SmartLinc worked fine. Being a 3Way it was a little more complicated, but went well by following your directions. Worked the first time it was turned on.

STEVEN — MIDDLETOWN, MD Date: 12/19/2009
Review: Very good product, wiring diagram not as detailed as it should be (the single red wire labeled LOAD goes to the LOAD, and the red wire labeled LOAD running with the HOT wire goes to LINE).

MARK — MINNETONKA, MN Date: 12/17/2009
Review: Works just perfectly. I’m no electrician, but I was able to follow the directions and set this up.

Receivers Provide an Easy way to Add Self-powered Wireless Control to Lighting Control and Security Systems

AD HOC Electronics E3R-R04FP-8 8-Channel Low Voltage Relay Receiver

The AD HOC Electronics 8-Channel Low Voltage Relay Receiver accepts wireless signals from other AD HOC EnOcean-enabled wireless light switches and sensors. It can be used to connect wireless light switches or door/window sensors to existing security, lighting, media, HVAC and other control systems. The low voltage relay receiver provides 8 channels of relay output which mirror the status of battery-free, EnOcean-compatible wireless transmitters. The relays provide wireless links to magnetic proximity window/door sensors or wireless light switches. The receiver receives information from EnOcean transmitters using a simple “ID learn-sequence” that stores transmitter IDs (addresses) in its EEPROM memory. This allows the receiver to store an association between each switch and each relay output. When used with compatible switches, the relays can be configured to toggle with each button press or provide momentary relay closure while the button is held and released. Also available as an 4-Channel Low Voltage Relay Receiver.

  • Compatible with AD HOC EnOcean enabled RF modules (868 MHz)
  • Easily add window/door sensors or self-powered wireless lighting to existing systems
  • Each unit can support up to 30 associations
  • Wirelessly communicates with other devices via EnOcean radio frequency (RF) protocol
  • 100 foot average range
  • Price: $189.95

    August 14, 2010 Leave a comment

    Product Title (In box)

    The United Security Products AVD-2010 combines technologically advanced features, ease of programming and reliable operation in a compact, unobtrusive dialer that is compatible with virtually any security alarm system. The AVD-2010 features a Power Monitoring System (PMS) that constantly operates in the background. The PMS automatically calls up to 8 phone numbers with a pre-recorded message when any of the three conditions have been detected: AC POWER OFF, BATTERY LOW, or AC POWER RESTORED. Installation and hookup are quick and easy, whether installed in conjunction with normally open, normally closed dry contact or voltage activation sensors. The unit can also function as a stand-alone device, by simple connection to an ordinary telephone jack.

    The AVD-2010 features a ‘smart’ Power Monitoring System (PMS) that constantly operates in the background without interfering with any of the dialer functions under normal power conditions. In the event of a blackout, or when battery voltage falls below a safe level, or when power is restored, the PMS automatically dials out and notifies by means of pre-recorded voice messages which of the three conditions have been detected: AC POWER OFF, BATTERY LOW, or AC POWER RESTORED.

    The AVD-2010 is extensively programmable, offering personalized customization to fulfill virtually any residential or business requirement. Plain-English prompts walk the user through the process in a timely manner. Programming options abound, allowing the user to:
    Store up to 8 telephone/pager numbers
    Choose 1-9 calling efforts for the numbers dialed
    Select 1-3 message repeats
    Record a variable combination (maximum: 7) of instructional outgoing messages (total elapsed time: 60 seconds)

    Program up to 4 separate input channels with individually enable/disable, entry/exit delay and activation options (Normally
    Open (N.O.), Normally Closed (N.C.) – (dry contact or voltage activation) including momentary and continuous activation for each).

    Further individualize each channel by selecting the delay times, telephone/pager numbers to be dialed and the specific
    outgoing messages to be played.

  • Sends Power Condition voice message in any language
  • Automatic power loss notification – instant or 15-minutes delayed
  • Up to 4 separate outgoing messages
  • Automatically calls up to 8 telephones or cell phones
  • EEPROM memory retains program despite power loss
  • Price: $269.99
