Can’t find a wall-mounted switch that meets your exact needs?

No problem! Simply create your own with an X10 controller!
X10 6319-1W XPT1-W Wall Mounted X10 On/Off Controller for 1 Address - White

It’s easy with these customizable wall-mounted controllers. They work just like the tabletop X10 controllers but are permanently mounted in a standard wall switch box and fit standard Decora® wall trim plates. This white Wall-Mounted Controller for One Address features On/Off control. A Decora-Style Wall Plate is required and sold separately.

Setup is a snap: simply connect two wires (Hot and Neutral) from inside the wall box to the two leads coming off the controller. To set the button address, just pop off the keypad, and set the house that the transmitter will controlling. You can even combine units in a multiple wall switchbox to build control panels with custom features.

Since these wall-mounted controllers are primarily transmitters of X10 signals, they do not have the ability to directly control a load. If you are replacing an existing switch (mechanical or X10) with a wall-mounted controller, you will need a X10 receiver to do the switching of the load formerly controlled by the switch. We suggest using Fixture Relay Modules or Plug-In Modules (for locations where the switch controlled an outlet). Read more

    Item# 2477DLAL

    Price: $64.99

    This high-tech yet easy to use dimmer takes your home into the future by giving you the ability to set the speed at which the light fades On and Off, a preset on-level for always remembering your favorite brightness level and best of all being able to remotely control the dimmer from a handheld remote, wall keypad, computer or mobile phone (controllers are sold separately). With high-end quality, at-a-glance LED status and remote controllability, you’ll see how easy it is to create your own home of the future.

    Similar to the best selling SwitchLinc Dimmer, this newest member of the SwitchLinc family has the ability to communicate using both the electrical wires in the home as well as using radio frequency (RF). This increases reliability not only for the dimmer but for all devices on an INSTEON home control network (similar to the function of an Access Point).

    The SwitchLinc installs like a traditional wall switch with the exception of requiring connection to neutral. Most homes have a neutral wire available (see How to check if I have neutral wires?). Once installed setup is quick and easy using a simple Plug-n-Tap programming.

  • Control this dimmer remotely from anywhere
  • Programmable on-level and fade on/off speed
  • Featuring dual-band INSTEON technology for the fastest and most reliable performance
  • Doubles as an Access Point

    INSTEON SwitchLinc Dimmer — The Best-Selling Remote-Controllable Dimmer
    Fill your entire home with personalized mood lighting for any occasion. From pressing the paddle directly to dim the lights to having all of your lights turn off with the press of a single button, this dimmer can do it all. The INSTEON SwitchLinc Dimmer has 32 brightness levels, which makes setting your lights to the perfect intensity very easy. This dimmer switch can control incandescent loads; if you need to control a fluorescent light fixture, or a non-dimmable appliance, try the INSTEON SwitchLinc Relay (Non-Dimmable).

    How many times have you jumped into bed and forgotten to turn the lights off? With the SwitchLinc Dimmer’s remote control ability, you can have the convenience of adding a bedside controller to turn off your lights after you get into bed. The SwitchLinc Dimmer can control up to a 600-watt load. If a larger load is required, the INSTEON SwitchLinc Dimmer (High-Wattage) is available.

    Note: As with all wall dimmers, the SwitchLinc may feel warm during operation. Rigorously tested and approved to UL-standards, the amount of heat generated falls well within approved limits and poses no threat to your home or the lifespan of the device.

  • Create elegant whole-house lighting scenes in minutes
  • Easy-to-install dimmer
  • Award-winning INSTEON technology provides superior performance and reliability
