Leviton Augments
Decora Smart Line
with New Devices
Leviton's Decora Smart No-Neutral
devices plus new Wi-Fi 2nd Gen
Motion Sensing Dimmer and Tamper
Resistant Outlet broaden lighting control
functionalities for new and older homes.
By Arlen Schweiger
LEVITON HAS announced
several new additions to
its Decora Smart lineup to
help integrators facilitate
smart home capabilities for
a broader range of households
including retrofits. The
company is launching its
Decora Smart No-Neutral
Switch, No-Neutral Dimmer
and Wi-Fi Bridge; Decora
Smart Wi-Fi 2nd Gen Motion
Sensing Dimmer; and Decora
Smart Wi-Fi 2nd Gen Tamper
Resistant Outlet.
The Decora Smart
No-Neutral Switch and
Dimmer products in tandem
with the Wi-Fi Bridge enable
dealers to seamlessly integrate
smart lighting controls
into older homes whose
wallboxes do not contain
neutral wiring.
The No-Neutral line from
Leviton supports schedules,
custom lighting scenes, rooms
and grouping, vacation mode,
auto shutoff and works with
the company's Decora Smart
Anywhere Companions for

wireless 3-way/multilocation
applications.
Leviton wanted to increase
the smart lighting options
for potential customers
without neutral wiring who
otherwise might be reliant on
using smart bulbs, protocols
like ZigBee, Z-Wave or other
proprietary protocols that
require third-party hubs or
connectivity, can be more
costly, challenging or frustrating,
senior product manager
James Shurte tells CE Pro.
" For these customers the
market hasn't really been
that wide for solutions, "
Shurte says. " We wanted to
make a connected switch
within our Decora Smart
Home platform that only
needed line, load and ground
- so if you don't have a
neutral it's not a problem.
" You swap out your old
switch, put this new switch
in and then what we do is
we have a very tiny plug-in,
it's our Wi-Fi Bridge, " Shurte
notes. " It's actually smaller
Leviton says the No-Neutral line supports schedules,
scenes, rooms and grouping, vacation modes and more for
smart lighting. New sensor and outlet add to functionalities.
than our mini plug-in switch.
It doesn't control any loads,
you plug it in out of the way
- it's about the size of an
iPhone charger. There's no
Ethernet cable, it's not going
in a rack; you plug it in, add
it to your Wi-Fi network and
it's literally just a bridge to
the No-Neutral Dimmers
and Switches. "
Shurte adds that the Wi-Fi
Bridge communicates with
the devices over a low-power
RF and takes that signal and
communicates to Wi-Fi, to
the My Leviton app or to Alexa,
HomeKit, Google, IFTTT,
SmartThings or other services
Leviton supports.
One Wi-Fi Bridge can
support up to 25 No-Neutral
Dimmers and Switches in a
home and will cover " conservatively "
2,500 square feet.
For larger homes, installers
can simply add another Wi-Fi
Bridge where needed for wider
coverage, and the lighting
devices will automatically
search for the nearest Bridge,
there's no hopping or jumping
like in the past when you add
a device.
The No-Neutral Dimmer
offers full-range dimming
performance with custom
settings in the My Leviton
app for preset lighting levels,
fade rates, bulb types and
more. An " Off Means Off "
feature ensures low-wattage
LED bulbs always turn
completely off, according to
the company.
Leviton's Decora Smart
Wi-Fi Motion Sensing
Dimmer combines those two
important functions in one
device to enable hands-free
lighting control in numerous
areas of a house and
assist customers with energy
savings. It offers simple setup
via the My Leviton app and
the dimmer provides new
features like Room Occupancy
Response, Night Settings,
Motion Snooze and more.
" Occupancy sensing and
dimming in one is good, but
because it's intelligent the
