Here’s your ApplianceLinc a la INSTEON. It has all the same great features as its older X10 cousin, the ApplianceLinc 2-Way. It’s what you want for non-dimmable devices up to 15 amps. And like all Insteon devices it acts as a repeater for all powerline INSTEON signals. Remember, all INSTEON messages are confirmed and repeated by INSTEON devices in your home network, contributing to the outstanding reliability and performance of INSTEON products. The more INSTEON enabled products that are installed, the more robust the network becomes. Setup is easy also – the ApplianceLinc V2 installs in minutes.
”Have Your Cake and Eat It”
The ApplianceLinc V2 is fully INSTEON and X10 compatible. Homeowners with existing X10 networks can easily migrate to an INSTEON network without having to discard all their existing X10 devices. However, please note that INSTEON devices repeat INSTEON signals and not X10, but they certainly can be programmed to accept X10 commands - - - your choice how you want to communicate: INSTEON or X10.
In addition to the INSTEON-controlled outlet on the bottom, the ApplianceLinc V2 offers a 15-amp non INSTEON-controlled outlet on the face of the module. Now you won't have to unplug your appliance modules just to find a place to plug-in the vacuum cleaner.
Like the line of INSTEON SwitchLinc V2 Dimmer, SwitchLinc V2 Relay and LampLinc V2 Dimmer, ApplianceLinc V2 Module is fully compatible with whole-house lighting scenes activated by a single INSTEON signal. For example, if you activate a "Movietime" scene that dims all the lights in the house, you can have the ApplianceLinc V2 turn on a room fan for that complete movie theater effect. Or if you activate a "Relaxation" scene that fills your home with ambient lighting, you can have the ApplianceLinc V2 turn on a cascading fountain.
Durable Construction and Quiet Also!
The ApplianceLinc V2's INSTEON address is burned in during programming and is inerasable and unchangeable. Don't worry about losing the address when the power is lost. All settings are stored in non-volatile memory, which means everything will be retained during a power outage. In fact, ApplianceLinc V2 is so smart it will automatically return the load to the same status it was at when the power was lost. So, if the ApplianceLinc V2 was controlling a table fan when the power went off, it will come back on when the power is restored. Because the ApplianceLinc V2 is built with a much quieter relay than most remote control ON/OFF modules, it has a click that's more than 80% quieter than traditional relay switches.
Status LED and Local Control
Get a visual indication when ApplianceLinc V2 is sending or receiving INSTEON or X10 signals. The Status LED is also used for set up programming. The ApplianceLinc V2 modules offer a local control function, or the ability to turn on or off lamps or appliances directly at the appliance, without the need for a transmitter.
Like all INSTEON devices, the ApplianceLinc V2 will provide intelligent controllers, like Indigo with status feedback, which is great for web and other "truly" remote control applications.
