Leviton and Schlage have announced the ability to pair the connected lighting functionality of the Leviton Decora Smart Wi-Fi lighting control line with the Schlage Encode Smart Wi-Fi Deadbolt. This integration, via the My Leviton app, enables customers to trigger lighting activity associated with lock activity for improved home safety, security, and convenience.
To take advantage of this integrated smart technology, homeowners and professionals install and connect the individual Leviton and Schlage products as instructed. The Decora Smart Wi-Fi devices connect to the My Leviton app, and the Schlage Encode Smart Wi-Fi Deadbolt connects to the Schlage Home app. Integrated functionality is achieved through simple steps within the My Leviton app where residents can align lock status with automatic adjustments to lighting, ceiling fans, small appliances, and electronics.
Once integrated, homeowners can enjoy the ability to select how their home lighting will appear when leaving or arriving home. For instance, when “Leaving Home,” residents may choose to have all lights automatically turn off, which will occur when the one-touch lock or a user lock code is used at the lock’s touchscreen. When “Arriving Home,” residents may choose to have selected lights automatically turn on, which will occur when an unlock code is used at the lock’s touchscreen.
Integrating lighting and locking functions gives residents the ability to avoid walking into a dark home and make sure that lights are not inadvertently left on when leaving the home, saving time and energy. Additionally, with the one-touch lock feature, the My Leviton app can change to “Away” mode to create a lived-in look by randomizing lighting schedules.
