Leviton's New HomeKit-Enabled Light Switch and Dimmers Now Available

by

LevitonLeviton's new line of HomeKit-compatible light switches and dimmers, first announced at CES in January, are now available for purchase from the Leviton website.

The Decora Smart 1000W DH1KD Dimmer is available for $65.99, the Decora Smart 600W DH6HD Dimmer is available for $59.99, and the Decora Smart DH15S 15A Switch is available for $53.99.

Both the dimmers and the switch are HomeKit-enabled and hub free, allowing users to control connected lights and other products using the Decora Smart Home app.

Leviton's Decora app offers customizable settings based on bulb type, allowing users to adjust fade rate, minimum and maximum illumination levels, and more.

Like all HomeKit products, Leviton's line of switches and dimmers can be controlled using Siri voice commands and HomeKit Scenes for automation purposes based on time of day, who's home, and other parameters.

Each of the dimmers includes rocker paddles and an embedded LED to display illumination level, and White and Light Almond color faces are included for all products.

Leviton's new Decora products are available immediately directly from Leviton and should also be available in retail stores soon.

I have been waiting for these to compare with Lutron (which has been solid but looks different than all my other switches). Now I'm waiting for them to be available in the market. Amazon has then listed as 1-2 months out but the prices are better. The prices listed here are full retail early adopter.

Speaking of which, I thought I recall hearing from Leviton that all of the switches would be sub $50.

The plugin modules are $48 and Leviton is offering ten percent off, if that helps any.

Somebody needs to create a grid comparison of all the HomeKit enabled switching. The options are becoming bewildering.

Just ordered some of the switches from their website. I had done a chat session and it saved me what looks like 10% using the discount code CHATSAVE. We will see how it works out. I am going to start by putting these in for my outdoor lighting which are all controlled by timers how, and then have home kit do the timing for me, and it also will reduce the wall warts and make the switches look "normal".

$50 for a quality dimmer is the going price if there's networking involved.

These dimmers have a LONG way to go before they compete with Lutron. I've got a couple of Caseta dimmers and you can't beat the combo of a dimmer and pico switch.

Rather than trumping up the "hub free" canard we actually need to know if these dimmers require a neutral switch or not. That will determine how easy they are to install. I don't think they require but i'll have to check.

If someone is looking at Leviton vs Lutron...just get the Caseta you'll be happier in the long run.

Ho

how does HomeKit and lutron handle virtual 3-way switches ? Are there any issues with synchronizing switch states.

No issues at all. With the Lutron, it's actually cheaper since you just cap off the wires in the wall for 2/3/4-way switches etc, and use remotes for those switches. The remotes screw into the wall like a regular switch, but they use a small button-style battery that lasts years and can be replaced. You then "program" the remote in the Lutron app to control whatever light you want. So you could put one of the remotes in where you have a 2/3/4-way, and have it control a completely different light if you want. So for a 4-way light, you'd have one regularly wired Caseta light switch, and the other three switches would be remotes, programmed to control that same light.

i.e.

https://www.amazon.com/Lutron-PJ2-3BRL-WH-L01R-Control-Favorite-Setting/dp/B00KLAXFQ0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1491346548&sr=8-2&keywords=lutron+remote+caseta

+

You can also use the remote as a bedside remote etc, too, or just use voice control of course.
