HOW TO SET UP ON-LEVELS AND RAMP RATES

Setting the On-Level (Optional)

The On-Level is the brightness that the lamp you are controlling will go to when you turn it on using an

INSTEON Controller. The On-Level is adjustable from OFF to 100% brightness. The default is 100%.

Skip this section if you will be setting the Ramp Rate.

1. Using the ON/OFF Button Pair that you already linked LampLinc Dimmer to, set the INSTEON

Controller to Linking Mode by pressing and holding the ON Button of the pair for 10 seconds.

2. Using the BRIGHT or DIM Buttons on the INSTEON Controller, adjust the brightness of the lamp you are controlling to the desired On-Level and tap the SET Button on LampLinc Dimmer ONCE.

3. Press and hold the black SET Button on LampLinc Dimmer for 3 seconds. Both the lamp you are controlling and LampLinc Dimmer’s Status LED will blink to confirm the On-Level setting.

Setting the Ramp Rate and the On-Level (Optional)

The Ramp Rate sets the time it will take for the lamp you are controlling to go from OFF to the On-Level brightness, or from the On-Level brightness to OFF. This time is adjustable from 0.1 to 9 seconds to ramp between full-ON and full-OFF. The default is 0.5 second.

1. Using the ON/OFF Button Pair that you already linked LampLinc Dimmer to, set the INSTEON

Controller to Linking Mode by pressing and holding the ON Button of the pair for 10 seconds.

2. Use the BRIGHT or DIM Buttons on the INSTEON Controller to adjust the Ramp Rate of the lamp

NOTE

If the lamp is ramping to less than full brightness, then the time it will take will be proportionately less. For instance, if the lamp is going to half brightness, the time it will take for a given Ramp

Rate will be halved. you are controlling. Adjust the Ramp Rate to be faster by pressing the BRIGHT Button, or adjust it to be slower by pressing the DIM Button. The table below gives the approximate relationship between brightness and Ramp Rate.

Dimmer’s Status LED will blink to confirm the Ramp Rate setting.

5. Press and hold the black SET Button on LampLinc Dimmer for 3 Seconds. Both the lamp you are controlling and LampLinc Dimmer’s Status LED will blink to confirm the On-Level setting.

INSTEON LampLinc V2 Dimmer User’s Guide

Creating an INSTEON Scene

INSTEON Scenes let you activate dramatic lighting moods with the press of just one button. INSTEON

Scenes are very easy to set up – just link more than one INSTEON module to an ON/OFF Button Pair on an INSTEON Controller. Then, when you press either the ON or the OFF Button on the INSTEON

Controller, all of the INSTEON modules linked in the scene will respond as a group. You can link multiple

LampLinc Dimmers or other INSTEON modules to multiple INSTEON Controllers.

To add an additional LampLinc Dimmer to a scene controlled by an ON/OFF Button Pair on an INSTEON

Controller, simply follow the same procedure that you used for linking the first LampLinc Dimmer. See

Linking LampLinc Dimmer to an INSTEON Controller, above. To adjust the On-Level by itself, see

Setting the On-Level (Optional), or to adjust both the Ramp Rate and the On-Level, see Setting the Ramp

Rate and the On-Level (Optional). To remove a LampLinc dimmer from a scene, see Unlinking LampLinc

Dimmer from an INSTEON Controller.

TIP

With some INSTEON Controllers, you can avoid having to hold a button down for 10 seconds for each setup step by placing the Controller in Scene Setup Mode, also called Multilink Mode. Refer to your

INSTEON Controller’s User’s Guide for detailed instructions on how to set it to Scene Setup Mode.

The following will work for a Smarthome ControLinc

™ V2 Tabletop Controller.

1. Set the ControLinc V2 to Scene Setup Mode for the ON/OFF Button Pair you want to use for controlling the scene by pressing and holding the ON Button of the pair for 10 seconds, then

tapping the same ON Button again. ControLinc V2’s Status LED will blink slowly.

2. Press and hold the black SET Button on LampLinc Dimmer for 3 seconds. The lamp you are controlling will blink to confirm linking. ControLinc V2 will beep to confirm linking, and its Status

LED will continue to blink slowly.

3. If you want to adjust the Ramp Rate or the On-Level, you can do so by following the steps above in the sections Setting the On-Level (Optional), or Setting the Ramp Rate and the On-Level

(Optional), but without pressing ControLinc V2’s ON Button for 10 seconds.

4. Continue Steps 2 and 3 for any additional INSTEON modules you want to link to the scene.

5. When you are finished linking INSTEON modules to the desired ON/OFF Button, complete Scene

Setup by pressing the ON Button. ControLinc V2’s Status LED will stop blinking and remain steadily on. You have about 4 minutes of inactivity before Scene Setup Mode times out automatically.
