Samsung SmartThings, Leviton Partner to Offer Lighting Control Bundle
The preassembled bundle includes a Samsung SmartThings Hub, Leviton VRMX1 Z-Wave Dimmer and Leviton VRS15 Z-Wave Switch.
A prepackaged lighting control bundle will be the initial offering between the two companies.
Additional ongoing enhancements will include advanced certification of new products and features, additional support articles embedded into the SmartThings app, installation and setup videos for professionals on Leviton support websites, and in-person training at distributor locations.
“For many Leviton professional customers, the SmartThings relationship represents an approachable automation solution that they can easily understand and quickly implement. They’ve been installing Leviton Z-Wave devices, often stand-alone or with professional grade control systems, for years,” says Richard Westfall, vice president and general manager of Leviton Energy Management, Controls & Automation.
“For the more advanced custom integrators, this is a value offering for customers that desire a low-cost, simple to use system complete with popular integrations including Amazon Alexa and Google Home voice control, locks, cameras, thermostats, doorbell systems, sensors and more with the Works with SmartThings program," adds Westfall.
SmartThings and Leviton have previously partnered for sales promotions, support initiatives and co-marketing efforts.
