Leviton today announced that the Decora Smart™ with Wi-Fi Technology 1000W Universal LED/Incandescent Dimmer received a 2017 Lighting for Tomorrow award in the category of Connected Lighting.
Sponsored by the American Lighting Association, the Consortium for Energy Efficiency and UL, Lighting for Tomorrow is a competition that challenges manufacturers to develop residential lighting products that can successfully incorporate advances in both design and energy efficiency. The Leviton submission, along with 130 other product entries, was judged by a panel of industry professionals at the UL University facility in North Carolina from June 6-8. The panel reviewed solutions ranging from LED indoor fixtures to ceiling fan lights – many of which were recognized as outstanding products that demonstrate developments in form factor and construction, while taking advantage of solid state lighting technology.
The Decora Smart™ Dimmer with Wi-Fi Technology is an innovative smart lighting solution offering homeowners remote access, app-based scheduling and voice control of lighting inside and outside of their homes. The device simplifies home lighting control by automating interior and exterior lights using the free My Leviton app. Users can create scenes and customized experiences with adjustable fade rates, maximum/minimum illumination levels and more. The Decora Smart with Wi-Fi Technology devices can also be connected to Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa-embedded products to provide voice control through commands such as “Alexa, turn living room lamp to 33%.”
Lighting for Tomorrow judges described the Decora Smart solution as a “simple yet smart lighting control that is a great alternative to a complex system; it’s intuitive and easy to understand, a great introductory option for customers that still provides energy saving action.”
“The Lighting for Tomorrow competition recognizes products that bring efficiency to the home, but also bring real innovative and useful functions as well,” said Richard Westfall, general manager and vice president for Leviton Energy Management, Controls & Automation. “This distinguished smart lighting solution brings affordable automation to the masses.”
Recognized at the American Lighting Association Annual Conference on September 12 in Vancouver, British Columbia, the award-winning Decora Smart with Wi-Fi Technology is now being showcased through the 2017 Lighting for Tomorrow brochure as well as www.lightingfortomorrow.com.
