SimplyBrilliant US1-40 is a Standard UPB Dimmer-Controller Switch Base with timer feature. It requires a single rocker faceplate (ZS11 Series, sold separately) available in white, almond, light-almond, ivory, black or brown. The faceplates are easily changed in the home. The US1-40 provides ultra-reliable control and timed off control of new and existing lighting fixtures, lamps, fans and other electrical devices. Each unit has one switch that controls a load of 1 Watt minumum to 900 Watts maximum. It can be configured to dim (factory default) or dimming can be disabled for On/Off control. This enables the US1 to support incandescent, halogen, fluorescent, LED, low-voltage transformers, ballasts and pump/fan motors. It can also transmit and receive lighting scene commands and status with other Universal Powerline Bus (UPB) switches, plug-in modules, fixture modules as well as any PC / security / home / automation controller that provides a UPB serial driver option (see FAQ for a current listing) - to control virtually anything that connects to AC power anywhere in the home.

The timer automatically turns off the switch load after a pre-set period of 1, 5 or 30 seconds, 1, 2, 4, 10, 20, 30, 40, or 50 minutes, 1, 2, 3, or 4 hours. The timer can be disabled so the US1-40 functions as a standard single rocker switch (no timer function) or enabled to activate with a rocker push (e.g. single push turns on with timer, double push turns on without timer, or visa versa). A UPB switch, such as the model US2-40 Universal Dimmer Transceiver, can also command any of the timer functions of the US1-40, via a lighting scene-link commands, to enable any selection of timed off options (e.g. buttons for 1 minute, 4 minutes, 10 minutes, 1 hour).
