Leviton integrates with Nest

Wireless smart home technology provider Leviton announced its integration with the Nest Learning Thermostat, Nest Cam and Nest Protect through the Works with Nest program.

Through this alignment, Leviton Decora Smart with Wi-Fi Technology and Nest devices can now be utilized together to automate lights and connected loads throughout the home.

For professional installers or homeowners or other end users, the free My Leviton app links their Nest account for unique automation occurrences within the home, including turning Leviton lights on if a Nest Cam detects motion, or it there is a smoke or carbon monoxide alarm detected by Nest Protect.

The combination will also adjust Leviton lights when needed, and provides other smart-home controls.

"As part of our commitment to offering the latest innovations in smart home technology, Leviton is excited to add a simple-to-enact connection for a variety of Nest devices via the Works with Nest program,” said Aaron Ard, senior director of engineering for Leviton Energy Management, Controls & Automation. “Utilizing the My Leviton app, Nest users can now connect the two clouds with the click of a button to immediately provide enhanced automation schemes, making their lives at home more convenient and comfortable.”

Decora Smart with Wi-Fi light switches, dimmers and plug-in modules provide time-based schedules, free remote control from anywhere and optional integrated voice control with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Winning nearly two-dozen awards in 2017, this customizable solution also provides home and away occupancy modes, auto-shutoff countdown timers, integration with IFTTT (if this, then that) service and multi-user support.
