Leviton and Schlage integrate smart lighting and smart door locks
Leviton and Schlage, an Allegion brand, announced the ability to pair the connected lighting functionality of the Leviton Decora Smart Wi-Fi lighting control line with the Schlage Encode Smart WiFi Deadbolt. According to the companies, this integration enables customers to trigger lighting activity associated with lock activity for improved home safety, security and convenience.
Homeowners and professionals will need to install and connect the individual Leviton and Schlage products as instructed. The Decora Smart Wi-Fi devices connect to the My Leviton app, and the Schlage Encode Smart WiFi Deadbolt connects to the Schlage Home app. Integrated functionality is achieved through steps within the My Leviton app where residents can align lock status with automatic adjustments to lighting, ceiling fans, small appliances and electronics. Once integrated, homeowners will have the ability to select how their home lighting will appear when leaving or arriving home. For instance, when “Leaving Home,” residents may choose to have all lights automatically turn off, which will occur when the one-touch lock or a user lock code is used at the lock’s touchscreen. The My Leviton app can also change to “Away” mode to randomize lighting schedules.
“Aligning the smart technology of Leviton and Schlage, two best-in-class century-strong brands, offers homeowners a unique opportunity to enrich their smart home capabilities for easier home security,” said Tom Morgan, director of the Works with My Leviton Partner Program, in a statement.
“Working together with Leviton to bridge the capabilities of our respective smart technology to upgrade the safety and security of our customers’ homes offers a forward-thinking solution to make today’s smart homes easier than ever to manage and control,” added Mark Jenner, director of technology alliances at Allegion.
