Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ShineTheLight This light switch it expensive, but you get what you pay for. It has a sleek design, look great, works great.
Light switch has multiple features, it is easy to find in the dark and is one of those things that you don't think you would need it or like it until you have it.

If you want a switch that is a dimmer and can be controlled remotely, this is the one

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chris Works great, including with LEDs
Unlike other reviews I have not had any problems with LEDs and the Insteon switches. I have about 20 of the 2477D in my house.
On some LED fixtures I get buzzing when dimmed, however this was the case with the previous analog dimmer I was using as well so I suspect the issue lies more with the quality of the bulbs I'm using (Cree). Interestingly some of the Cree bulbs don't have any problem at all.
Overall I'm extremely impressed with the solution as we were reviewing the MUCH more expensive Control4 solution prior to experimenting with and ultimately deciding to use Insteon.

It's easy to replace an existing switch with this one -- just don't forget to remove the fuse first. The replacement switch can be remotely controlled (and it can remotely control others of it's kind), i.e., you can join switch activities, use a remote to have another way to switch, etc. Remote control means that you don't have to add new cables.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jimr LED ok for me
I'm using these (and some older model single band Insteon switches) with the Cree LED bulbs sold at Home Depot and they work fine. The only problem is that the Cree builds don't dim smoothly all the way to 0%.

So far I can't get them to work properly.The customer support line was no help other than to tell me they don't usually have problems with these switches.
The house I'm installing them in is big and has an electrical panel on each end of it. I can understand why some switches fed from 1 panel aren't recognized by switches fed from the other panel since the only common connection they have is at the meter can, but 2 switches fed from the same panel can't "find" each other either. That shouldn't happen.
If I can make them work right I'll edit this review, but I don't have high hopes.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DrJinSoCal Slick solution to some tricky problems
Works well as an electronic dimmer, but it's too expensive for that alone. The value is in the ability to use it as a remote or remotely controlled device. I used a pair of them to control one light in an area that didn't allow the wiring needed by normal 3-way switches. Installation was simple and so was the programming, so full marks there. A neat feature is that the led lights on the switch are dimmable so your house doesn't wind up looking like Times Square at night. The only caveat is that the Insteon communication protocol is not totally flawless, although it is much better than alternatives such as X-10. The first time I used one of these to control a remote light, it didn't work until I installed a pair of repeaters in the system (extra cost). In the current installation, there is cross-talk between the sender and an already-installed unit elsewhere that will require some reprogramming. The end result is great, and these switches will let you do some things you couldn't do any other way, but it won't necessarily be perfect right out of the box.
