Leviton has announced that its latest addition to the Decora Smart Wi-Fi product family, the smart Wi-Fi 15 Amp Tamper-Resistant Outlet, part number DW15R, is available to purchase.
This new device, which is designed to match other existing outlets throughout a home, allows homeowners to turn lamps or other small appliances that are plugged into the top receptacle on and off through the My Leviton app. The device is compatible with Google Assistant devices and all products that support Amazon Alexa, including the new Leviton Decora Smart Voice Dimmer, providing voice control such as, “Alexa, turn entryway outlet off.” Both receptacles in the Wi-Fi outlet are tamper-resistant, featuring built-in shutters to prevent the insertion of unintended foreign objects and potential electrical shock.
In addition to turning devices plugged into the top receptacle on and off while at home or away, homeowners can use the My Leviton App for more customizable control options, including:
- Schedule Wi-Fi outlets to turn on and off at certain times of the day, including at sunrise or sunset.
- Create scenes with other Decora Smart Wi-Fi devices to control multiple appliances, electronics, lights, or fans at once through the app or through voice control.
- Use the auto-shutoff feature in the My Leviton app to turn off appliances or other electronics plugged into the top outlet of the DW15R receptacle after a preset amount of time.
The outlet’s vanishing feedback LED can be adjusted to an individual’s preferred settings through the My Leviton app. This can include showing the load status, having the LED lit to help locate the Wi-Fi outlet in the dark, or keeping the LED off if the device is installed in a bedroom or other light-sensitive area of the home.
The Wi-Fi Tamper-Resistant Outlet does not require a hub, and the intelligence is built into itself.
