Leviton recently announced expanded features including IFTTT (if this, then that) integration for Decora Smart™ with Wi-Fi Technology lighting controls. Decora Smart with Wi-Fi light switches, dimmers, and plug-in modules provide time-based schedules, free remote control from anywhere, and optional integrated voice control with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. The customizable solution now includes new enhancements easily accessible via firmware and app updates:
Integrate with IFTTT service: Trigger automation activity based on events in the home using third-party devices and Leviton Decora Smart with Wi-Fi. Integrate other smart solutions using IFTTT.com including thermostats, surveillance cameras, door locks, and other smart products. For instance, if motion is detected, then turn on Porch Light.
Multi-user support lets users to invite family and friends to control Leviton devices in their home. Simply enter the individual’s email address and press the invite button, and revoke access at any time.
Home and away occupancy modes: Engage home vs. away to enact changes upon arrival and departure. For instance: when I come home, run the Leviton activity named “Home”, which would trigger certain lights to turn on. When I go away, randomize my lights when it becomes dark outside, providing a lived-in appearance perfect for full-time residences and vacation homes.
The new auto-shutoff feature is ideal for closets, hallways, bathrooms, and even children’s bedrooms, where lights are often accidentally left “on”. Instead, the auto-shutoff acts as a customizable countdown timer, turning the lights off automatically after a preset period, selectable from one minute to one-hour timeframes.
In using 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, lamp types, LED functionality, and more, to specifically personalize every aspect of a homeowner’s lighting for each fixture, room, and residence.
