I'd like a wall switch that only has three settings: 0%, 10%, and 100%. It would be used for a bathroom. Of course any dimming switch could be used, but it would be more convenient to just have the settings needed.
This would be easy with an Insteon dimmer switch. Pressing the top of the switch once lights the bulb at dim level, pressing the top again makes it full bright and pressing the bottom turns it off. You may be able to use the new Icon switch.
With the Insteon and Icon SwitchLincs, you can program a preset dim on-level (no computer required). Tap the top of the switch, and it goes to that level. Tap the top again, and it goes to full on. This would seem to meet your requirements, and you can do it with a $20 Icon (and Real Soon Now, you can buy the Icon at your local Home Depot).
Mark, It WILL work on ICON switches. Whoever you spoke to at Smarthome fed you some bad info. I installed an ICON dimmer yesterday and it has both local and remote preset dim and tapping the top half will bring it to full bright. See details on pages 18 & 24 of this ICON manual:
You can also program a different preset dim from each controller that it's linked to.

Are you sure you're not mistaken? The documentation only states that pressing the top of the paddle sets the light to the local ON level. It says to "press and hold" the paddle top to brighten from there.
Here's a test you can perform:
Set the Local ON level to 10% or so via the instructions on page 18 (heed the 4-minute wait).
