Leviton and Schlage Integrate Smart Lighting, Smart Door Locks
The integration, via the My Leviton app, enables users to trigger lighting activity associated with lock activity for improved home safety.
MELVILLE, N.Y. — Electrical device manufacturer Leviton and Schlage, a brand of Allegion, announce the ability to pair the connected lighting functionality of the Leviton Decora Smart Wi-Fi lighting control line with the Schlage Encode Smart WiFi Deadbolt.
The integration, via the My Leviton app, is said to enable customers to conveniently trigger lighting activity associated with lock activity for improved home safety, security and convenience.
To take advantage of the integrated smart technology, homeowners and professionals install and connect the individual Leviton and Schlage products as instructed. The Decora Smart Wi-Fi devices connect to the My Leviton app, and the Schlage Encode Smart WiFi Deadbolt connects to the Schlage Home app.
Integrated functionality is achieved through simple steps within the My Leviton app where residents can align lock status with automatic adjustments to lighting, ceiling fans, small appliances and electronics.
Once integrated, homeowners can select how their home lighting will appear when leaving or arriving home. For instance, when “Leaving Home,” residents may choose to have all lights automatically turn off, which will occur when the one-touch lock or a user lock code is used at the lock’s touchscreen.
When “Arriving Home,” residents may choose to have selected lights automatically turn on, which will occur when an unlock code is used at the lock’s touchscreen.
Integrating lighting and locking functions allows residents to avoid entering a dark home, saving time and energy, according to the announcement. Additionally, with the one-touch lock feature, the My Leviton app can change to “Away” mode to create a lived-in look by randomizing lighting schedules.
“Working together with Leviton to bridge the capabilities of our respective smart technology to upgrade the safety and security of our customers’ homes offers a forward-thinking solution to make today’s smart homes easier than ever to manage and control,” says Mark Jenner, director of technology alliances at Allegion, maker of Schlage locks. “This collaboration delivers clear benefits to the homeowner and provides homebuilders a unique offering for their customers.”
