Leviton Manufacturing Co. has expanded its award-winning Vizia RF+® line of radio frequency-based lighting and home controls with three new combination devices that offer lucrative opportunities for installers in the home controls market. Designed for “no new wires” installations in retrofit environments, these stylish devices replace a single switch or dimmer with a multi-button combination switch/controller that provides local load control plus the additional benefit of scene and/or zone (area) control.
The new Vizia RF+ offering includes: a 4-Button Scene Controller with Switch and Optional IR Remote Capability; a 4-Button Zone (Area) Controller with Switch and Optional IR Remote Capability; and a 2-Button Scene Controller with 2 Switches.
The 4-Button Scene Controller with Switch provides control of up to four unique lighting scenes as well as ON/OFF control of its connected load. The top four buttons on the device provide ON/OFF switching of four scenes, while one button provides ON/OFF control of a single-pole switch. The bottom button transmits DIM/BRIGHT commands to the most recently switched-ON scene. An optional IR Handheld Remote Controller can be used to activate a scene and to dim or brighten the lights. Button labels are available to identify the scene that each button is controlling.
The 4-Button Zone Controller with Switch affords remote control of up to four Vizia RF+ scene-capable devices in addition to ON/OFF control of its connected load. The top four buttons on the device provide ON/OFF control of specific assigned areas and one button provides local (single-pole switch) load control. The bottom button on the device transmits DIM/BRIGHT commands to the most recently switched-ON zone. An optional IR Handheld Remote Controller can also be used for zone control and to dim or brighten the lights. Button labels are available to identify the areas being controlled.
The 2-Button Scene Controller with Switches provides remote control of up to two different scenes in a Vizia RF+ home lighting network as well as ON/OFF switching of two lighting loads in a single wallbox.
The new line of innovative Vizia RF+ multi-button wall-mounted controllers makes it possible for installers to offer an innovative solution that enables homeowners to control local loads throughout their homes without having to install extra devices in the walls. These four and two-button controllers provide exceptional one-touch control convenience without the need for additional wires, labor and costs. From a single location, homeowners can set up timed events for energy saving and safety, as well as convenient control of lighting scenes and zones from either the controller units or from a handheld remote.
