MELVILLE, N.Y. — Leviton announces five new Z-Wave Plus certified lighting control devices to its Decora Smart line.
The additions include 600W and 1000W in-wall dimmers, 15 Amp switches, plug-in outlets and plug-in dimmers.
The Decora Smart with Z-Wave technology devices universally support LED, CFL and incandescent bulbs, are certified to work with both Samsung SmartThings and Wink hubs, and are backwards compatible to Leviton Vizia RF + systems, according to the company.
“Leviton has been a pioneer and believer in Z-Wave technology for well over a decade, beginning with the existing Vizia RF + product family,” says Tom Morgan, director of product management, controls and automation, Leviton Energy Management. “Therefore, it’s only natural to bring our wide-ranging product line into the future with a new look and enhanced Z-Wave Plus technology.”
The 600W and 1000W dimmer hardware features an all-new dim/bright bar placed vertically alongside the on/off rocker paddle. Vanishing LEDs on the left side of the paddle show current and target light levels with real-time feedback.
Additional Decora Smart with Z-Wave Technology Features:
- Z-Wave Plus commands, such as network wide inclusion and beaming, faster installation and strong communication
- Increased energy efficiency
- Compatibility with extremely sensitive low-wattage LED bulbs – no glowing
- Local on/off push button for plug-in modules for real-time communication to compatible hubs, such as Samsung SmartThings and Wink
