Leviton Partners With Alarm.com to Integrate Z-Wave Lighting Controls

Thanks to Z-Wave technology, a number of Leviton Decora Smart lighting controls can now integrate with Alarm.com panels and controllers.

 •

Leviton, a leading provider of wireless smart home technology and electrical wiring devices, has partnered with Alarm.com as an approved provider of certain Z-Wave lighting controls for Alarm.com installations.

Homeowners can automate lights and devices connected to Leviton Decora Smart Z-Wave dimmers, switches and plug-ins through any compatible Alarm.com panel or controller. In addition, the Alarm.com app provides single-point access to control the Leviton Z-Wave Plus connected lights or devices individually from any location.

The following Leviton Z-Wave Decora Smart dimmers, switches and plug-ins are now available as an upgrade to Alarm.com compatible security panels and controllers (all firmware versions).

Compatible Leviton Decora Smart Z-Wave products include:

  • 600W dimmer, part number DZ6HD
  • 15A switch, part number DZ15S
  • Plug-In dimmer, part number DZPD3
  • Plug-In outlet, part number DZPA1

In addition to automating lights and devices with an Alarm.com panel or controller, homeowners can pair Leviton Decora Smart Z-Wave devices with three-way or multiple location remote devices, such as the Leviton Decora Digital/Decora Smart Matching Switch Remote DD0SR or Matching Dimmer Remote DD00R.

“Now, homeowners with Alarm.com connected homes in North America can add Leviton dimmers, switches, and smart plugs to their installations for time-based schedules and remote access,” states Tom Morgan, director, product management for Leviton Energy Management, Controls & Automation.

Morgan continues, “Leviton’s Z-Wave partnership with Alarm.com is important as it allows us to combine efforts with a leading platform in millions of homes to continue providing the best lighting control system experience with our devices.”

The integration with Leviton creates additional lighting options for property owners as well as security, builder and multifamily partners, explains Shawn Barry, vice president of strategic sales at Alarm.com.

“Automatically turning Leviton Z-Wave Plus connected devices on and off as part of the security system actions or through a single-tap schedule in the Alarm.com app gives users greater control of their home and more peace of mind at home and away,” Barry says.

Security installers, consumer electronics integrators and electrical contractors can purchase Decora Smart products, including the upcoming smart receptacles, from their preferred distributor and authorized Leviton retailers.
