Smarthome INSTEON RemoteLinc for control geeks


As a kid, the catchy, familiar "Clap On, Clap Off" jingle and technology amazed me. To be able to have total control over the lights with a simple hand motion basically equated to my concept of modern technology . . . awesome. I always urged my thrifty mother to take the dive and give it a try; I mean, it was the solution to so many problems! She never did, and I therefore have continued my quest in search of a more modern, less foolish, similar device.

Since its market debut two years ago, INSTEON has been a control geek's best friend. Its clever, award-winning technology enables users to control lights and appliances remotely via a plug-in controller. Now your non-geek friends and family can enjoy INSTEON too, thanks to the introduction of new accompanying technology called "RemoteLinc."

RemoteLinc is an easy-to-program handheld controller and starter kit that helps you take control of two lamps wirelessly (dimming, on/off). The fun doesn't start and end with lights, as additional modules giving you even more control over other appliances are just $35.

The only thing missing is a catchy jingle!

Price: $119.99 for RemoteLinc Starter Kit.
