Lamps and Outlet Controllers

With outlet controllers for your lamps and appliances, you can make sure you never leave something on – or set schedules for your lamps to turn on while you’re away from home. You can manage multiple lamp modules in your home security and automation system. Each module is assigned a name and is designated as dimmable or not.

New: You can now order light bulbs, outlet controls and SD memory cards from Midco and have them shipped directly to your door. Pair these items to your Midco SmartHOME system without needing a visit from a Midco technician. Just follow the easy instructions included with the shipment, or visit our Tech Tips page.

Midco offers outlet controllers to modify lights, but not light switches that are compatible with Midco SmartHOME.
