Regular price Sale price $54.95

The i3 Paddle is everything you need in one package: It can either be configured as an on/off switch or a dimmer switch with an all new clean design. 

  • Family-friendly design works like a standard switch; the top turns the light on, and the bottom turns it off – When in dimming mode, press and hold top to brighten, press and hold bottom to dim
  • Can be set for either on/off or dimming control for various fixture compatibility
  • On/Off mode supports switching up to 9A, 1/3 HP – Great for non-dimmable lighting or ceiling fans and exhaust fans
  • Dimming mode supports up to 150 Watts of dimmable LED bulbs or up to 400 Watts of incandescent or halogen bulbs
  • Control one fixture or an entire room from one switch; pairs with other Insteon products for multi-switch circuits—with or without a Hub

Ultimate control

Insteon products work together with or without a Hub. Add the Insteon Hub 2 and Director app to simplify setup, run your lighting schedules and control your lights from anywhere with an app or with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.

Requires a subscription to Insteon Hub Account Access.

Simple and intuitive

The i3 Paddle is designed for everyone in your household, taking the guesswork out of setting the scene or creating the perfect mood.

Intelligently reliable

With patented dual-mesh technology, even if your Wi-Fi is down, your switches still work.

Understated elegance

The i3 Paddle is sleek and understated to blend into any decor.


i3 devices use the same unique dual-mesh Insteon technology that other Insteon products use. This means that out of the box, you can manually link i3 devices to virtually any Insteon device. Also, many of the local settings are similarly configurable. Read more about how to manually configure this and other Insteon devices

i3 devices are supported using Insteon Hub 2 and the Director app. If you use 3rd party hardware/software (eisy, Indigo, Homeseer, etc), features may be limited as we work with those developer partners to support these new devices.

Work in progress

I’ve been very happy with your product as I’m moving forward. Still have more to be done yet. I do believe at the end of the project it will come together. I won’t be available over the next month. However I’m looking forward to seeing this through to complete replacement.
Sincerely Douglas B Jones

Updated Icons yo i3 paddles

The i3 have a nice updated look and are more convenient in that they can go both ways dimmer/switch. it would be nice if they came in Almond also, but my biggest complaint is in replacing switches using the eisy (since my hub died for the third time),. The eisy does not allow a straight forward replacement which means i have to rewrite all the scenes and programs for each switch replaced.

The Paddle version of the i3 works perfectly! The ability to switch between dimmer and switch makes it even better. The dimming is smooth, unlike the dial version.

Need matching wall plate

I like my i3 paddles, but I can't find a screwless wall plate that matches the color and texture. When will you have them again? They have been out of stock for over a year!!! Or, can you recommend another manufacturer's product that will match?

Thanks for reaching out. Unfortunately, the 1-gang and 2-gang screwless wall plates have been out of stock for a while, so we've been actively looking into alternative solutions with other suppliers / manufacturers. In the meantime, you can certainly try searching online or visiting your local big box retailers. We've been told that the following Leviton decora plate works well with the i3 product line (even though it is not screwless):

Without special plates...that do not yet exist, this device is useless.

This device looks really good & I would love to continue buying & installing these at my customers' homes. But unfortunately, I am required to modify the opening/s on every single wall plate I install otherwise the device interferes with the wall plate. You need to either offer a special wall plate or modify the device manufacturing process to adjust the paddle size.

The reply below is unacceptable...Do you really expect someone who doesn't like, want or already has other plates in their house to pay for replacing all of their wall plates because they are having only a few switches replaced with i3 Paddles? You can't be serious.

The i3 Paddle does not have the traditional frame separating it from the wall plate. This means that while the design looks clean and more refined, it requires things fit well, both in the junction box and in the wall plate. We would recommend using a screwless wall plate as the inner frame helps with alignment, reducing the chance of the paddle binding with the wall plate frame.
