IRLinc Transmitter Owner’s Manual
WHAT IS INSTEON?
Since its inception in 2005, INSTEON has become a best-selling home-control networking technology,
offering more reliability and flexibility than any other home management system on the market. INSTEON
systems are simple, reliable, and affordable. Simple, because each device takes mere minutes to install.
Reliable, because every INSTEON device works as a network repeater, ensuring your commands will not
be lost. Affordable, because INSTEON can be integrated into any number of devices easily and at a very
low cost. An INSTEON home grows in value with each added INSTEON device, making life more
convenient, safe, and fun.
How Does INSTEON Work?
What makes INSTEON the most reliable home automation network is its dual-mesh network. INSTEON
devices use both radio frequency (RF) signals and the home’s existing wiring to talk to each other. In an
INSTEON network, every INSTEON device also acts as a repeater, receiving and sending every
message to all other devices in the network. So by integrating more INSTEON devices you will strengthen
the network and ensure no commands will be lost.
No central controller or networking setup is required with an INSTEON network. Simply install your
devices and then use a series of button presses or taps to Link your devices together. Throughout this
Owner’s Manual, you may see the terms “Controller” or “Responder”. These generic INSTEON terms
refer to the components of an INSTEON scene, and are used on a scene-by-scene basis.
•
Controller – sends INSTEON commands to other devices
•
Responder – reacts to commands sent out by another INSTEON device
An INSTEON device may act as a Controller, Responder, or sometimes both.
INSTEON networks are also extremely secure. Each INSTEON device is assigned a unique INSTEON
ID, so unless neighbors or would-be hackers have access to your particular device’s INSTEON ID, they
won’t be able to control your home, even if they are using similar products.

INSTALLATION
Preparing to Install IRLinc Transmitter
CAUTION
Read and understand these instructions before installing and retain them for future reference.
IRLinc is intended for installation in accordance with the National Electric Code and local regulations in the
United States or the Canadian Electrical Code and local regulations in Canada. Use indoors only. IRLinc is not
designed nor approved for use on power lines other than 120V 60Hz, single phase. Attempting to use IRLinc
on non-approved power lines may have hazardous consequences.
Prior to installing IRLinc, please review the entire installation procedure and take the following precautions:
•
Use indoors or in a properly insulated and weatherproof electrical box only
•
Don’t plug IRLinc into an outlet controlled by a switch because if the switch is inadvertently turned off,
IRLinc won’t have power
•
Don’t plug IRLinc into a filtered power strip or AC filter
•
Be sure that the device you want to control is working and that the device’s built-in switch is in the on
position
•
Don’t stack INSTEON home automation devices together by plugging them into each other. Stacked
devices may overheat and stop functioning. Also avoid using the pass-through outlets on INSTEON
devices for other heat-generating power supplies.
•
Don’t use IRLinc to control devices that preserve, maintain, or contribute to human or animal safety or
life support
•
Be careful where emitters are plugged in if you plan on using the included IR emitters on a device
other than IRLinc. Some similar jacks may have higher voltages than the emitter can handle. If an
emitter is plugged into the probe jack, it will be destroyed instantly.
•
The IRLinc IR emitter jack is designed for use with single/dual IR emitters or blasters and is not
compatible with IR repeating systems through a direct connection. For use with these systems, it is
recommended to install a sensor compatible with the desired IR repeating system in range/sight of an
emitter or blaster connected to the IRLinc IR emitter jack.
•
For control of more than two IR devices, it is recommended to use an IR blaster located in sight of all
your equipment
Tips for using the included IR emitters:
•
Some plasma TVs and compact fluorescent lights may produce IR noise that could interfere with the
equipment’s IR sensor. Covering the outside of the emitter with black electrical tape may help.
•
If the emitter falls off the equipment, clean the sensor area with an alcohol-based cleaner and reapply
the sensor
•
If the foam adhesive doesn’t stick well, apply a very small drop of glue and reapply
•
IR emitters need to be in direct contact with the equipment’s IR sensor window for best results.
Operation may be intermittent if the emitter is just a few inches away from the window.
•
An extension cable (up to 300 feet) may be used between the emitter and the equipment. A two or
three conductor cable with male and female 1/8 inch (3.5 mm) plugs is ideal.

IRLinc Transmitter Owner’s Manual
Installing IRLinc Transmitter
1) Plug the IR emitter plug into the IRLinc emitter jack
2) Plug IRLinc into a convenient, unswitched wall outlet near your IR equipment
HINT: You will need access to the bottom of IRLinc during Linking so you may want to temporarily
use an extension cord until setup is complete.
The IRLinc Status LED will turn on solid blue
3) Locate the IR sensor for the IR-controlled device you would like to control
NOTE: When using the stick-on emitters, it is important to find the IR sensor on the equipment and
place the emitter directly over the sensor. Use a flashlight to look into the display or bezel of the
equipment to find the sensor. If the sensor is too difficult to find, you can partially cover the front of the
equipment with an object or thick cloth. If the remote works, then continue to isolate areas of the
uncovered section to narrow down the location of the sensor.
4) Once you have located the device’s IR sensor, hold the emitter where you intend to mount it and then
learn and test the IR code
a) Double-tap the Set button on IRLinc
IRLinc will double-beep and its Status LED will begin blinking
b) Point your IR remote control at the bottom of IRLinc, holding it within a couple inches of the
IR sensor. Then, tap the IR button to be learned.
IRLinc will double-beep and its Status LED will turn on solid
If IRLinc beeps eight times, remount the IR emitter and start over from step a
c) Test that the IR code has been learned by tapping the Set button on IRLinc
IRLinc will beep
5) Remove the peel-off backing from the first IR emitter and mount it over the IR sensor
6) Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the second IR emitter
NOTE: Due to heat build-up and the potential for causing damage to this device, it is strongly
recommended that you avoid using the front pass-through outlet for stacking INSTEON devices. Also
avoid using this pass-through for other heat-generating power supplies.
See a tutorial video at: www.smarthome.com/videos/2411T.wmv
USING IRLINC TRANSMITTER
INSTEON
IRLinc responds only to INSTEON ON or OFF commands. ALL ON/OFF or BRIGHT/DIM commands are
ignored.
NOTE: For any given INSTEON Controller button, the IR commands associated with the ON command
are independent of the IR commands associated with the OFF command, for added flexibility.
X10
IRLinc responds to the X10 addresses which are programmed and not the commands. For example, if
you program A1, IRLinc will respond to any command which starts with A1, such as A1 ON, A1 OFF, etc.

CONTROLLING IRLINC TRANSMITTER FROM AN INSTEON
CONTROLLER
Linking an INSTEON Controller to IRLinc Transmitter
To control your IR devices from an INSTEON Controller, follow these steps to Link IRLinc and the
Controller together. Refer to your Controller’s Owner’s Manual for detailed instructions on how to properly
install and Link it to IRLinc Transmitter.
The following will work for the most common INSTEON devices:
1) Set the Controller to Linking Mode. (For most Controllers, press & hold an On or Scene button for 10
seconds or the Set button for 3 seconds.)
You will have 4 minutes to complete the next step before Linking Mode automatically times out.
2) Press & hold the Set button on IRLinc until it double-beeps (3 seconds)
After a few seconds, IRLinc will double-beep again. DO NOT PROCEED UNTIL YOU HEAR
TWO SETS OF DOUBLE-BEEPS.
3) OPTIONAL: If you want to send the IR code to respond to an OFF command instead of an ON
command, send an OFF command from the Controller within 30 seconds of performing step 2
NOTE: Sending an OFF command in this step will not affect any other Link.
If an OFF command is sent, IRLinc will double-beep
4) Confirm that Linking was successful by tapping the button you just Linked to on the Controller
IRLinc will respond appropriately
Unlinking IRLinc from an INSTEON Controller
If you are going to discontinue using IRLinc, it is very important that you Unlink it from any Linked
Controllers. Otherwise, the Controller will retry any commands repetitively, thus slowing down the system.
The following will work for the most common INSTEON devices:
1) Set the Controller to Unlinking Mode. (For most Controllers, press & hold an On or Scene button for
10 seconds twice or the Set button for 3 seconds twice.)
You will have 4 minutes to complete the next step before Unlinking Mode automatically times out.
2) Press & hold the Set button on IRLinc until it double-beeps (3 seconds)
After a few seconds, IRLinc will double-beep again
3) Confirm that Unlinking was successful by tapping the buttons you just Linked from on the Controller
IRLinc will no longer respond
CREATING AN INSTEON SCENE
INSTEON scenes let you activate dramatic lighting moods with the press of just one button. For example,
you can set all the lights in a scene to dim to 50% or turn certain lights on while turning others off, all with
the tap of a button on a Controller.
INSTEON scenes are very easy to set up – just Link more than one Responder to the same On/Off or
Scene button on a Controller. Then, when you press any of the Linked buttons on the Controller, all of the
INSTEON devices Linked in the scene will respond as a group.

IRLinc Transmitter Owner’s Manual
ADVANCED FEATURES
Restoring Power to IRLinc Transmitter
IRLinc stores all of its settings, such as Links to other INSTEON devices, with non-volatile memory.
Because settings are saved in this non-volatile memory, they will not be lost in the event of a power
failure.
Resetting IRLinc Transmitter to its Factory Default Settings
The factory reset procedure will clear IRLinc of all INSTEON Links and any programmed X10 addresses.
1) If you are using a Controller to control IRLinc, be sure to Unlink it from the Controller. See Unlinking
IRLinc from an INSTEON Controller.
2) Unplug IRLinc from the outlet for 10 seconds
3) While holding down the Set button on IRLinc, plug it back in, making sure not to let go of the Set
button
4) Continue to hold down the Set button for 3 seconds and then release
A few seconds after you release the Set button, IRLinc will beep and the Status LED will turn on
solid
X10 PROGRAMMING OPTIONS
IRLinc is X10 ready, meaning that it can respond to X10 commands from X10 controllers. However, to
operate IRLinc in X10 mode, you must first set up an X10 address. As it ships from the factory or after a
factory reset procedure, IRLinc will not have an X10 address set up.
Setting the X10 Address
You must complete the following before IRLinc will send out X10 commands. You can use any of the 256
possible X10 addresses for the X10 address.
1) Press & hold the Set button on IRLinc until it beeps (3 seconds)
The IRLinc Status LED will begin blinking
2) Using an X10 controller, send the desired X10 address, followed by the ON command three times
For example, to assign the address A1, you would send “A1 ON A1 ON A1 ON”.
IRLinc will double-beep and its Status LED will stop blinking
Removing the X10 Address
If you are no longer going to control IRLinc with an X10 address, it is very important that you Unlink it,
because otherwise IRLinc will respond to the X10 command and may cause IR devices to turn on by
themselves.
1) Press & hold the Set button on IRLinc until it beeps (3 seconds)
The IRLinc Status LED will begin blinking
2) Using an X10 controller, send the X10 address you would like to remove followed by the OFF
command three times
For example, to remove X10 address A1, send “A1 OFF A1 OFF A1 OFF”.
IRLinc will double-beep and its Status LED will stop blinking and turn on solid

ABOUT INSTEON
Using Dual-Band INSTEON Devices to Upgrade Your Network
What are phases?
The majority of single-family homes in North America have two phases (or “legs”) of 110 Volts coming into their
electricity panels. From the panel, they are distributed throughout the home, providing power to outlets and wall
switches. These phases come together in some parts of the home to provide 220 Volts of power to large appliances,
such as an electric oven or pool pump.
Why do I need to bridge these phases?
Single-band power line devices send commands via the home’s electricity, but only on a single phase. If the
command is intended for a device on the opposite phase, there is a good chance the command will go unnoticed.
Installing dual-band INSTEON devices, such as Access Points (#2443), on each phase will allow for devices to
communicate between the two phases via RF.
Dual-band INSTEON devices embody the full potential of a true INSTEON mesh network. Taking the power line band
signal and working in conjunction with the RF band signal, its dual-band function plays out in two ways:
•
Phase bridger – a receiver of commands, reacting to and translating signals sent from one power phase to
the opposite via RF
•
Signal repeater – a participant in an INSTEON network, repeating commands intended for other devices
whether those commands are generated from RF or power line-only devices. To ensure reliability, every
INSTEON device confirms that it has received a command. If a Controller does not receive this confirmation,
it will automatically retransmit the command up to five times.
While using at least one dual-band device is required when using an RF-only device, at least two dual-band devices
are recommended to ensure reliable communication across two-phase home wiring systems. For larger applications,
it is recommended to install at least one dual-band device for every 750 – 1,000 square feet.

Important Note about INSTEON Networks; Split Single-Phase vs. 3-Phase
Installation
For the best INSTEON network performance, be sure you have properly installed at least two dual-band INSTEON
devices. INSTEON has only been officially tested in a split single-phase residential environment but has been known
to work in many 3-phase systems, where three dual-band devices are used (one on each phase). However, due to
the potential complexity of its troubleshooting, the INSTEON Gold Support Line is unable to support INSTEON in 3phase environments.
Further Enhancing Reliability
As signals travel via the power line or RF throughout the home, they naturally become weaker the farther they travel.
The best way to overcome weakened signals is to increase the coverage of the mesh network by introducing more
INSTEON devices.
It is possible that some audio-video devices, computers, power strips, or other electrical equipment may attenuate
INSTEON signals on the power line. You can temporarily unplug suspected devices to test whether the INSTEON
signal improves. If it does, then you can plug in filters that will permanently fix the problem.

Parity bits have been found to cause commands after the first to not work.
Sony VisionTouch
Check for either:
•
“VisionTouch” printed on the faceplate
•
Model number ending with “G”
•
Came with “Air-Egg” remote
Almost no learning remote can work with a VisionTouch receiver. The VisionTouch system uses a 45 KHz carrier
frequency which uses a unique (non-standard) protocol that is unlearnable by almost every universal remote to date,
including the Philips Pronto and Sony’s own models. The problem extends in that you can’t use “normal” Sony
remotes or IR codes to control the receiver – even the Sony RM-AV3000 will not work. Affected models include:
STR-DA90ESG
STR-DE805G
STR-DE815G
STR-DE905G
STR-DE1015G
STR-D760Z
STR-G1ES
STR-G3
STR-GA9ESG
TA-VE800G
TA-VE810G
Sony’s newer receivers advertised with “2-way communications” are fully compatible with regular learning remotes.
Sony has since dropped the entire VisionTouch system from their lineup.
High Frequency IR Systems
Several brands of equipment feature IR systems that operate at frequencies much higher than normal. Though the
majority of IR remotes operate in the 30-40 KHz range, several brands such as a Bang & Olufsen, particular
Kenwood equipment, and some lighting control systems use a 455 KHz frequency. More unusual and difficult to work
are Pioneer and Pioneer Elite components built around 1997 that use a 1.125MHz carrier frequency.
Pace Cable Boxes
Pace designed a remote for their 1000 and 2000 series digital cable boxes using a protocol not actually intended for
remote control use. The IRDA variant was intended for high-speed data transfer over short distances (i.e., from laptop
to printer), rather than the slow-speed/long distance requirement of remote controls. The IRDA standard specifically
includes a format for remote controls. However, the Pace remotes do not use it. The issue is that trying to learn such
codes is much like asking an AM radio to receive FM signals – it simply isn’t possible. At this time, the only remote
controls that can offer even partial functionality are certain models from One For All. Even then you’ll most likely have
to send the remote to the factory in order for these codes to be added. More recent – and older – Pace models are
not affected by this problematic protocol.
Parity Bits
A somewhat common problem is when a device (such as a cable box) will accept a learned code once but not twice
in a row. For instance, you can enter the channel “1 – 2”, but not “3 – 3”. This is not a fault with your new remote, but
rather a very hard-to-work-with design employed by your equipment.
What happens is your original remote tacks on a “party bit” (sometimes called a “toggle bit”) to the end of each code.
So, the first time it sends the code it follows up with a “0”. The next time it ends with “1”. The problem is that a
learning remote can only learn or send the signal one way – the way you learned it. Your equipment, unfortunately,
will not accept the code again unless it ends with a new parity bit or you send a different code to clear the memory
buffer.
The most common example of equipment that uses this system is anything that employs the Philips RC5 or RC6
code format - such as Philips or Marantz products, or even Microsoft Media Center Edition remote controls. As the
RC5 and RC6 implementation guidelines make parity bit checking optional, not all RC5/RC6 devices will respond the
same way to non-alternating learned codes. Some may require parity bits at all times, some may only require it for
certain commands (such as “power”), some may use the parity bit only for closely repeated commands (meaning you
could send “3-3-3” quickly with the original remote but only slower using a learned code), while some ignore parity
bits completely and show no noticeable operational difference with or without.

IRLinc Transmitter Owner’s Manual
RF Satellites
For anyone attempting to consolidate all of their remotes into a single unit, satellite systems can pose a potentially
major problem: RF through-the-wall controls. As satellite receivers are the only mainstream A/V devices
manufactured today using this technology, IR universal remotes do not include RF support.
Satellite receivers come with either an RF-only remote or an RF and IR remote. In the former case, you should
contact your manufacturer to determine if your model still has IR compatibility (most today do), in which case you can
purchase a new remote or capture the codes from another pre-programmed model. For the latter, you may have to
make a choice between RF or IR – most receivers cannot operate with both activated at the same time. This
adjustment will be found in the receiver’s setup screens and will probably have to be toggled before the remote will
transmit IR signals.
Here is a trick for the Sony SAT-A2, A3, and A4 receivers that will allow use of both RF and IR at the same time:
•
Ensure you are already in RF mode
•
Press MENU, 9 (SETUP), 1 (REMOTE)
•
Select “REMOTE CODES” which will bring up a list of various devices
•
Now select “TV CODES” to bring up the list of TV codes
•
Press EXIT
Your DSS receiver should now be in a mode where it will respond to both IR and RF codes at the same time.
However, there are two problems which you may encounter. First, if you use the RF remote in the same room as the
receiver it may respond to both RF and IR signals at the same time, as if you pressed the button twice. This does not
appear to occur very often. Secondly, if you have another similar DSS receiver you can’t use this trick on it as it
always appears to default to the same RF security code (001), meaning that both RF remotes end up controlling both
receivers.
If your receiver does not include infrared support you will need to continue controlling it via the original remote.
Other RF Equipment
All other RF equipment, such as most older Bose systems, cannot be controlled by any universal remote currently
available. Don’t be confused by remotes advertising RF capability – this is not for the control of RF devices, but rather
for controlling IR components from other rooms. The remote sends an RF signal to a base station in the same room
as your equipment, which then rebroadcasts it as IR. There is no way to consolidate control of an RF-only device into
a third party remote, learning or otherwise.
X10 Automation
If you are currently using a wireless remote to control X10, odds are you are transmitting via RF signals to a
transceiver base. The transceiver base plugs into the wall and translates the RF signals to X10 commands over your
home’s wiring. If that is the case, universal remote controls or IR controllers will not be able to duplicate those RF
signals.
However, if you are using an X10 IR543 (or IR543AH), a universal remote or IR controller will not work with what you
have.
