Leviton now offers Matter support for several products in its Decora Smart Wi-Fi 2nd Gen family, including the Decora Smart Wi-Fi 2nd Gen 600W Dimmer, 15A Switch, Mini Plug-in Dimmer and Mini Plug-In Switch.
This adds to the growing number of smart home product manufacturers that are adding support for Matter, the new open-source connectivity standard for smart home and IoT devices designed to improve compatibility.
The Melville, N.Y.-based manufacturer says customers can enroll directly into the company’s Matter Early Access Program via the My Leviton app. Once enrolled, Matter certified firmware can be downloaded to their devices.
According to the company, existing and new users of the My Leviton app can connect their Decora Smart Wi-Fi 2nd Gen Dimmer, 2nd Gen Switch, 2nd Gen Mini Plug-In Dimmer or 2nd Gen Mini Plug-In Switch locally to any Matter-enabled smart home platform of their choice including Amazon Alexa™, Google Home®, Apple Home®, Samsung SmartThings and more.
Those products are the first to receive Matter certification in the Decora Smart Wi-Fi 2nd Gen portfolio, and additional devices are planned for future Matter updates for free in the My Leviton app.
“Our team is proud to be able to bring Matter support to our core Decora Smart Wi-Fi 2nd Gen products to help lead the way with Matter smart lighting and load control,” says James Shurte, senior product manager of smart home for Leviton, in a statement. “Giving Decora Smart customers the ability to connect their devices to any Matter certified platform adds additional value to our award-winning product line.”
According to Leviton, the easy enrollment and interoperability available through Matter will provide a simplified experience for device owners to connect to their smart home systems of choice.
Additionally, all customers can continue using the My Leviton app, which offers a wide range of features and customization, including functions from tuning the lighting control performance of bulbs and fixtures with fade rates, preset light levels and minimum/maximum dim/bright adjustments, to night settings, away mode, custom dashboards and more.
The My Leviton app also facilitates setup and control of Leviton Smart Circuit Breakers and EV Series car chargers, creating an energy management platform and unified experience.
