August 21, 2014 – Leviton has acquired all the shares of ClickOn Technology—a South African manufacturer of automation technology for residential and commercial applications.

“As home automation continues as a growth opportunity for Leviton, we are excited to add ClickOn’s DIN rail lighting control solutions to our extensive product offering,” said Bruno Filio, Leviton’s vice-president of sales and international business development.

Leviton explains it has a “successful history” with ClickOn, having used a number of the company’s automation solutions to enhance its Security & Automation product offering.

As part of the acquisition, Leviton will bring ClickOn’s entire product line into its family of solutions, including ClickOn’s remote control system that promises “convenient, secure and reliable control” of any electrical system and appliance from a single remote.
