Leviton has launched a series of new videos, diagrams and equipment lists to help contractors and customers integrate iPhone and Android smartphones and other media-streaming devices into a home network.
The new materials provide detailed information on connecting devices using a set-top box like Roku or Apple TV, or through a Wi-Fi connection using an Apple AirPort Express or AirPlay-enabled receiver.
The new wiring scenarios are designed to provide smartphone convenience and connected home performance. Each scenario features a Leviton Structured Media enclosure to serve as the nerve center of the home network – the hub for Internet, video, voice and multi-room audio distribution. From there, Leviton connectivity equipment such as network routers, audio modules and speakers help homeowners integrate and easily share music, videos and photos throughout their entire home network.
“Starting with a Leviton Structured Media enclosure makes the initial installation quicker and easier,” said Yuna Shin, connected home product manager for Leviton Network Solutions. “It also provides homeowners with a unique opportunity to easily make moves, additions or changes as their home network evolves.”
