Leviton Decora Smart Voice Dimmer with Amazon Alexa
Homeowners can now benefit from the convenience of Amazon Alexa’s voice command capabilities directly from a light switch with the launch of the Decora Smart™ Voice Dimmer with Amazon Alexa Built-in. Leviton, a leading provider of smart Wi-Fi lighting control technology and electrical wiring devices, announced today that its first-of-its-kind voice-powered smart Wi-Fi dimmer is available to purchase. The Voice Dimmer doesn’t take up counter or desk space and provides the functionality of Alexa and smart lighting control discreetly built right into your wall.
The Decora Smart Voice Dimmer with Amazon Alexa Built-in, part number DWVAA, is the ideal replacement for standard light switches to add lighting control and intelligence to any area of your home. The device allows users to not only fully automate and control lighting via Amazon Alexa or the My Leviton app, but also take advantage of Alexa services and features without the need for an additional device or hub. Homeowners can use their voice to dim and brighten lights, listen to the news, get the weather, play music, control smart home devices, make announcements, and more – all through the Decora Smart Voice Dimmer. Homeowners can also access their lighting remotely from anywhere through the My Leviton app and create lighting schedules or custom scenes, such as having lights dim to 30% brightness for a “Movie Time” Scene.
“Consumers increasingly want to have access to the convenience and features of voice assistants in many areas of their homes,” said James Shurte, senior product manager for Leviton. “This provided an opportunity for Leviton to combine the innovative technology from our popular Decora Smart Wi-Fi lighting controls product line with the power of Amazon Alexa Built-in. Now, homeowners can embed smart lighting control with the intelligence and benefits of Amazon Alexa invisibly throughout their homes from a single device to help make their daily lives easier.
Expanding Smart Lighting & Home Automation Possibilities
For those looking to quickly add voice control and smart lighting to one room or area of the home, the Decora Smart Voice Dimmer is the smart choice. The device works seamlessly with other Leviton and the My Leviton app for an easy, intuitive Wi-Fi lighting solution for your home. The Decora Smart Voice Dimmer, other Decora Smart Wi-Fi devices and many additional types of smart products can be included in Alexa home automation routines via the Alexa app. These routines can easily be activated via the homeowner’s voice such as:
“Alexa, run my Morning Routine,” to slowly brighten lights in a bedroom and to get a weather update before streaming the morning news.
“Alexa, run my Leaving For Work Routine,” to turn lights off, set back the temperature in the house to conserve energy, and get a traffic update on your commute as you are headed out the door.
In addition to Alexa Built-in, the Decora Smart Voice Dimmer works with My Leviton partners such as IFTTT and Google Assistant.
