Leviton introduced its new Decora Humidity Sensor and Fan Control devices, designed to work with ventilation fans to create a more comfortable environment in areas of the home prone to dampness and humidity.
Leviton Decora Humidity Sensor and Fan Controls are available in two models — a Single-Pole Humidity Sensor and Fan Control and a Combination Humidity Sensor and Fan Control with Light Switch. Both models automatically detect excess humidity in a room and activate the ventilation fan to lessen condensation, which helps reduce mold and mildew. The fan will then automatically switch off after the set time-out period. The built-in sensor uses a microprocessor combined with state-of-the-art digital sensing technology to continuously monitor a room or space’s humidity level and manage the ventilation fan accordingly. The devices feature user-friendly controls to adjust sensitivity and time-out settings, as well as operating modes for bath exhaust fan, air cycle, and humidistat. Both devices offer users the option of manually turning the ventilation fan on to address immediate needs.
For ease of installation, the devices feature a slim profile and do not require a neutral wire to install. Flexible installation options include wiring with a neutral wire if available, or by using an earth ground connection.
Leviton Decora Humidity Sensor and Fan Controls comply with the requirements of 2019 and 2022 California Title 22, Part 6, Indoor Air Quality and Mechanical Ventilation as well as CALGREEN, Part II, Indoor Air Quality and Exhaust.
The devices are compatible with Decora and Decora Plus wallplates and are designed for use in bathrooms, basements, laundry rooms, and home spas. They are backed by a 5-Year Limited Warranty.
