Does anyone know if there is such a thing as an Insteon double pole double throw switch? I would like to control my 2-speed whole house fan remotely. I currently am using one of the remote control Christmas light switches, but it doesn't allow me to change the fan speed. I either wire it to run the fan on high or change the wires to run it on low, and that is a real pain in the neck!
Any suggestions would be helpful and appreciated.

Sounds like you want to use a dual on/off outlet, model 2663.

Insteon does not have any line voltage double-throw devices nor any double-pole devices at all. But you could wire in a DPDT relay and use an Insteon device to control the relay.

Edit: a difficulty with the outlet is that it's possible to (inadvertently) energize one outlet while the other is still on.
