Plug and Play


The Mini Remote is an easy-to-use remote that allows you to control INSTEON dimmers, switches and plug-in or receptacle dimmers. Now you can raise and lower light levels and program scenes for multiple lights and appliances from anywhere. Mount it to the wall to create a traditional switch in the perfect location - without having to rewire (wall mount bracket and wallplate sold separately). You can also make it a tabletop control for your nightstand, counter or coffee table by attaching it to a tabletop stand (sold separately); turn on your house lights from the car by attaching it to a visor clip (sold separately); or even use it as a lightweight handheld remote. The Mini Remote is ultra-easy to install and operate, giving you the most flexibility for a truly smart home with INSTEON.

How it works

Like a traditional wall switch, tapping the top paddle turns your lights (or scenes) on and tapping the bottom paddle turns your lights (or scenes) off; press and hold the top paddle to brighten every light in the scene or press and hold the bottom paddle to dim every light in the scene. The LED status indicator blinks green for ON commands and red for OFF commands. The LED indicator will also let you know if a device did not acknowledge the command.

Additional programming options allow Mini Remote to function as a 2-scene controller, making the top paddle control one scene and the bottom paddle control another. This can be set to alternate between ON and OFF for each press (toggle) or only send ON (non-toggle). Other handy features include:

  • Power switch for disabling buttons ("vacation" or "pocket" mode)
  • Stuck Button Mode - saves battery life by going to sleep if button stuck down
  • Built-in battery charge LED indicator
  • Rechargeable

The INSTEON Mini Remote is powered by an internal rechargeable lithium battery. Based on average usage, expected battery life between charges is 9-12 months. Recharge using any standard USB Type A to Micro-B cable.
