Leviton Launches Decora Smart™ Wi-Fi 4-Button Controller
In-wall lighting control station can adjust individual devices, room scenes or whole home activities
MELVILLE, N.Y., March 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- A new professionally-installed smart lighting control offering is now available with the launch of the Decora Smart™ Wi-Fi 4-Button Controller. The multi-button wall station allows users to adjust light fixtures and overhead ceiling fans connected to Decora Smart Wi-Fi devices in a single room or throughout the whole home with the push of a button. Leviton, a leading provider of smart Wi-Fi lighting control technology and electrical wiring devices, announced today that its latest expansion to the Decora Smart Wi-Fi product family, part number DW4BC, is available. The station features four individual buttons whose functions can be easily programmed for each specific customer's needs via the My Leviton app and are compatible with Leviton's Decora Smart line of dimmers, switches and plug-in outlets for easy integration and control.
The Decora Smart Wi-Fi 4-Button Controller provides professionals with a sophisticated, in-wall solution for their customers to control multiple Decora Smart Wi-Fi devices, room lighting and/or fan speed control scenes and whole house activities from a single device, reducing visual clutter and simplifying control. The 4-Button controller does not connect directly to a light fixture but rather sends commands to Decora Smart Wi-Fi lighting products including dimmers, switches and smart plugs throughout the entire home. It requires a neutral ground wire for installation. Up to eight DW4BC's may be utilized in a single My Leviton residence.
"The smart home industry has never seen a multi-button controller that is so easy to set up and use," said Tom Morgan, director, product management for Leviton. "With the My Leviton app, we have been able to simplify the process of integrating smart devices around the home to three simple steps, no longer needing complex programming and software. The new Decora Smart Wi-Fi 4-Button Controller offers high-end lighting control that anyone can set up and use."
Customized Control with the Push of a Button
Commands for each individual button can easily be set up for customers through the My Leviton app. These commands can control a single Decora Smart Wi-Fi device, such as having the top button turn on the overhead lights and an overhead fan in a bedroom and having the bottom button turn them off. The commands for the buttons can also be used to create room scenes like "Movie Time," as well as whole-home activities such as "Go to Bed."
Each of the four buttons feature a vanishing feedback LED to provide a clear visual indication when a button is pressed. A unique LED mode causes the LED to glow allowing homeowners to see the buttons even when the room is dark. If the controller is in a bedroom or other light-sensitive area, the LEDs can be turned off.
Seamlessly Match with Existing Devices
The 4-Button Controller matches the popular Decora form factor and styling for a seamless and consistent aesthetic with other devices in a room or throughout the home. The 4-Button Controller ships in white but has color change kits available to match popular interior décor including Light Almond, Ivory, Black, Brown and Gray.
