Leviton, a manufacturer of electrical devices and Schlage, a brand of Allegion and a provider of home security products, 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 WiFi Deadbolt.
This integration, via the My Leviton app, enables customers to conveniently trigger lighting activity associated with lock activity for improved home safety, security and convenience.
“Aligning the smart technology of Leviton and Schlage, two best-in-class century-strong brands, offers homeowners a unique opportunity to enrich their smart home capabilities for easier home security,” says Tom Morgan, director of the Works with My Leviton Partner Program at Leviton.
“This innovative partnership is just another great example of how Leviton continues to offer thoughtful solutions to homeowners and professionals that are safe, smart and efficient.”
To take advantage of this integrated smart technology, homeowners and professionals simply 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 WiFi 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 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 no longer walk 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.
Leviton Decora Smart offers a choice of lighting control solutions using technologies that include Wi-Fi, Z-Wave Plus and Zigbee 3.0. Leviton Decora Smart Wi-Fi dimmers, switches, fan speed controllers, receptacles and 4-button controllers feature removable faceplates to easily change colors without the need to rewire. Color options include Black, Gray, White, Light Almond, Ivory and Brown. Devices can be paired with color-matched Decora or Decora Plus screwless wallplates or customized by mixing and matching colors. Decora Smart products are backed by a two-year limited warranty. See warranty for additional details.
The Schlage Encode Smart Wi-Fi Deadbolt enables secure, remote access from anywhere, without the need for a hub. Featuring built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, the Schlage Encode lock can be managed with the Schlage Home app, to provide homeowners with a simple, easy-to-use solution for access control management. The smart deadbolt is available in a variety of styles and finishes. The Schlage Encode lock is compatible with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Ring video doorbells and cameras.
“Working together with Leviton to bridge the capabilities of our respective smart technology to upgrade the safety and security of our customers’ homes offers a forward-thinking solution to make today’s smart homes easier than ever to manage and control,” adds Mark Jenner, director of technology alliances at Allegion, maker of Schlage locks.
“This collaboration delivers clear benefits to the homeowner and provides homebuilders a unique offering for their customers.”
