Leviton Delivers Wi-Fi Lighting Automation with Voice Control
Leviton has released a hubless home automation solution, Decora Smart with Wi-Fi Technology, offering remote access, app-based scheduling, and voice control.
The new product family simplifies home lighting control from anywhere by automating interior and exterior lights using the free My Leviton app. The devices can also be connected to Amazon Echo, Dot, Tap, or Alexa-embedded products, like the Nucleus touchscreen intercom, to provide voice control .
Leviton devices are connected to home Wi-Fi networks as well as to Amazon Alexa-enabled products via the My Leviton app. In the app, users can add a new home, device, room, activity, or schedule at any time from an iOS or Android device. Users can also create schedules and activities based on specific times or events.
"The Decora Smart with Wi-Fi Technology product line is a revolutionary innovation that brings affordable automation to the masses," said Richard Westfall, vice president and general manager of Leviton Energy Management, Controls, and Automation, in a statement. "With nothing more than a new Leviton device, your Wi-Fi network and a smartphone, homeowners can have a smart home with remote access, scheduling and voice control. Add multiway capability, advanced technology for low wattage bulbs, plus multiple color options and wallplates to the offering and this is the most complete and advanced IoT lighting control on the market."
