Leviton has announced development of two new devices for homeowners to control their lamps, small appliances, and other electronics — the Decora Smart WiFi in-wall receptacle and the Decora Smart Z-Wave Plus in-wall receptacle. The Z-Wave Plus model integrates with compatible Z-Wave automation hubs, gateways, and bridges, and the Decora Smart WiFi receptacle will be the newest addition to the Decora Smart WiFi family of lighting controls.
The smart outlets feature a top outlet that can be controlled and a bottom outlet that is always on for 24/7 power applications — important for clocks, phone chargers, and other electrical devices which must remain on. Both Decora Smart Receptacles also include a manual button for local on/off control.
The Leviton Decora Smart Receptacles are perfect for new home builds or can replace an existing outlet in the home by exchanging any standard outlet for the new Decora Smart Receptacle. Each receptacle includes tamper resistant shutters to meet installation code and provide additional protection from electrical shock.
Multiple Decora Smart Receptacles can be installed within the same residence as part of a whole home lighting control system and can provide a variety of control possibilities. For instance, a homeowner can use an app to turn on a fan plugged into the smart outlet in an office while a smart receptacle in a bedroom could provide on/off schedules for a bedside lamp. For new construction, electricians can install a Decora Smart Receptacle in a kitchen to simplify control of a coffee pot or tea kettle, so homeowners have peace of mind that they can turn these appliances off even after they’ve left the house.
Homeowners can create schedules and scenes with the Decora Smart WiFi receptacle and other Leviton WiFi lighting.
