Leviton Lighting Controls Now Integrate With Nest IoT Devices
Leviton is now partnering with Nest to make its Decora Smart technology compatible with Nest devices, including security cameras, thermostats, and smoke and carbon monoxide sensors.
MELVILLE, N.Y. — Leviton, a leading provider of wireless smart home technology, now integrates with Nest IoT devices through the “Works with Nest” program.
The integration allows Nest devices to be utilized together to automate lights and connected loads throughout the home. Professional installers and end users alike can employ the free My Leviton app to link their Nest account for unique automation occurrences within the home, including:
- Turning lights on if a Nest Cam detects motion
- Turning lights on if there is a smoke or carbon monoxide alarm detected by Nest Protect
- Adjusting lights based on when a Nest Learning Thermostat, the Nest app or other Nest sensor says you are home or away
- Setting devices to turn on, off or “blink” (repeated on/off) for a certain duration after an event occurs. These durations can be set between 30 seconds and 12 hours.
Decora Smart with Wi-Fi light switches, dimmers and plug-in modules provide time-based schedules, free remote control and optional integrated voice control with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. The customizable solution also provides home and away occupancy modes, auto-shutoff countdown timers, integration with IFTTT service and multiuser support.
“As part of our commitment to offering the latest innovations in smart home technology, Leviton is excited to add a simple-to-enact connection for a variety of Nest devices via the Works with Nest program,” says Aaron Ard, senior director of engineering, Leviton Energy Management, Controls & Automation. “Utilizing the My Leviton app, Nest users can now connect the two clouds with the click of a button to immediately provide enhanced automation schemes, making their lives at home more convenient and comfortable.”
My Leviton app functionality
Upon downloading the My Leviton app for Android and iOS, users can create schedules and activities based on specific times or on-demand events that can run manually at their discretion, such as TV Time or Game Night. Advanced settings are also available to adjust fade rates, brightness levels, bulb types, LED functionality, countdown timers and more.
