Leviton expands Decora controls with Bluetooth dimmers and fan control
By Renée Francoeur
March 30, 2017 – Leviton has added three new devices: an electronic low-voltage dimmer, a 0-10V LED/Mark 7 fluorescent dimmer and a quiet fan speed control, to its existing line of Decora Digital Controls with Bluetooth technology.
These devices provide the ability to dim and time lighting or manage a fan’s speed without the need of a hub, gateway or internet connection, according to Leviton. Users simply pair the device with the Leviton Decora Digital Dimmer & Timer App and use on-screen menu options to control lights or fan speed with Apple or Android smartphones or tablets within a 30-ft range.
Digital circuitry provides programmable soft fade on and fade off as well as the ability to set the maximum light level for energy savings. The electronic low-voltage dimmer is compatible with electronic low-voltage, dimmable LED, dimmable CFL, incandescent, or halogen loads. The 0-10V LED/ Mark 7 fluorescent dimmer is designed for use with LED and fluorescent ballasts and fixtures using 1-10V power supplies. It is dual voltage 120V/277V and requires no power pack for switching. A matching remote for both dimmers is available for 3-way/multi-control applications.
The quiet fan speed control with Bluetooth technology offers 1.5A of power and features a Decora rocker On/Off switch and slide bar for low, medium, high or maximum quiet fan speed control.
