HAI 1000W Dimmer Switch


1000W Dimmer Switch

Control 1000W Lighting Loads
The HAI UPB™ 1000W Dimmer Switch is capable of storing up to 16 preset light levels to create powerful lighting scenes. It is capable of being set to a Non-Dimming mode (see Configuration Software below) in order to control loads, such as fluorescent lights, that do not belong on a dimming switch.

1000W Dimmer Switch

Switch Operation
The 1000W switch has a Decora-style rocker switch.

The 1000W Dimmer may be used to control the lighting load as follows:

Rocker Event Top Rocker Bottom Rocker
Single-Tap Brightens the light towards fully on Fades the light to fully off
Double-Tap Snaps the light to fully on Snaps the light to fully off
Hold Starts brightening the light towards fully on Starts dimming the light towards fully off
Release Stops brightening the light Stops dimming the light


Switch LED
The 1000W switches come equipped with a multi-color LED indicator that may be set to off, blue, red, or magenta. The default settings are as follows:

  • Switch is off - LED is blue
  • Switch is on - LED is off

You may change these default colors by using the HAI UPB™ UPStart configuration software (see below).


The paddle portion of the switch is not removable for the 1000W switch; accordingly, you must order the switch in your desired color. It is available in White, Almond, Black, Ivory, and Brown colors.

Important Color Note: The 1000W switch is color matched to Lutron colors and the rest of the HLC product line is color matched to Leviton colors. While the White and Ivory colors match exactly in these two styles, the rest of the colors, especially the Almond color, have a slight color variation.

HAI 1000W Color Swatches

No Wallplate is included when you purchase a 1000W switch. With the exception of the 1500W and 2400W models, HAI Lighting Control (HLC) switches accommodate standard Decora-style Wallplates. Mix and match to easily add a personalized touch to any room.

About HAI Lighting Control (HLC)
HLC Products work as stand-alone or with a Home Control System. An HAI home control system has the ability to change your light settings by the time of day, a set schedule, by the triggering of events (including motion), via a telephone call, Touchscreen, Smartphone, or by a computer connected to the Internet. To discover more about lighting control with an HAI home control system click here.

All HLC products are UL Listed and use Generation III Universal Powerline Bus (UPB™) – a digital communications standard for lighting and home control that ensures superior reliability. UPB™ has been extensively tested and researched in residential environments and found to be 99.9 percent reliable. UPB™ works over existing wires in a home and does not require new wiring.

Configuration Software
When used with an Omni family or Lumina family home control system HLC products automatically configure themselves, and outside software is not required.

HAI offers HAI UPB™ UPStart Configuration software for professionals who desire to make advanced changes to HAI's default setup. This software also allows you to change the colors on the switch's LED and the rate that it brightens to fully on or dims to fully off.


Requirements / Recommendations

  • 1000W Switches require a neutral (white) connection wire.
  • If you are using an HAI home control system with HLC switches, you must install a UPB™ PIM.
  • HAI recommends that every HAI Lighting Control (HLC) installation include a Phase Coupler.
  • To use the HAI Upstart Configuration software you must install a UPB™ PIM and use a UPB™ PIM to computer cable to connect it to a computer.


The 1000W switch requires its own gang box. When it is mounted in a normal depth wall box it must be de-rated from 1000W down to 900W.

For a proper fit in a multiple gang installation, it may be necessary to remove one or both of the break-off tabs on the sides of the 1000W switch. When tabs are removed, the overall rating of the device must be reduced in accordance with the following chart:

Description Load
Device Maximum Load 1000W
No Fins Removed Deep Box 1000W
No Fins Removed Normal Depth Box 900W
One Fin Removed Next to One Dimmer 800W
Both Fins Removed Next to Two Dimmers 600W
