Leviton's Vizia Collection Named Among Electronic House Magazine's Top Products of the Year

Press release date: Aug 04, 2006

Little Neck, NY, August 4, 2006 - Leviton's new Vizia Collection was named by Electronic House magazine as one of its top products for 2006. The Vizia Collection is a technologically-sophisticated family of lighting and fan speed controls that integrates digital engineering, intuitive operation, and a stylish form factor compatible with Leviton DecoraŽ devices and Screwless Snap-on Wallplates.

According to Selin Glickman, Director of Marketing Management, Lighting Controls, "We're delighted that our Vizia products are so highly ranked by the staff at EH Publishing. With so many exciting products to choose from, we're pleased that Vizia's combination of features and outstanding performance attributes caught the attention of the judges at Electronic House."

Vizia products combine elegance with precise control in a wide range of residential and light commercial environments. Vizia dimmers feature easily adjustable lighting levels, making them ideal for creating a mood, setting off artwork, or reducing glare on a television or computer screens. In addition to its push pad switch design, the Vizia dimmer features a seven-segment LED brightness indicator, a Dim/Bright rocker, and a green locator LED to help users locate the device in a darkened room. Vizia's digital circuitry enables it to be installed in applications requiring single-pole, 3-way, or higher-level control schemes. Its exclusive, return-to-neutral design provides tactile and visual appeal, allowing devices to remain aligned whether dimmers are ON or OFF. This design also eliminates unsightly line breaks and shadow patterns that detract from a pleasing, symmetrical appearance in multi-ganged installations.

Later this year, Leviton will expand the Vizia Collection to include Vizia RF(TM), a dependable, scalable, affordable wireless lighting control system for residential applications utilizing Z-Wave technology from Zensys.
