The IQ Dimmer controls lamps or light. It plugs into any existing electrical outlet and pairs with the IQ Panel, providing the ability to control remotely any light up to 2.5 amps on, off or dimmed across 99 different levels. The IQ Dimmer can turn off automatically when one leaves their home, saving energy. Additional rules like, “Turn on lamp when doorbell rings,”or, “Turn off light when security system is armed,” are customizable through the user’s Alarm.com portal.

Meanwhile, the IQ Outlet can turn an appliance up to 15 amps on or off, giving the user the ability to automate fans, space heaters, coffee makers and more. Like the IQ Dimmer, it pairs easily with the IQ Panel and, according to the company, improves the Z-Wave mesh network functioning as a repeater.
