Leviton announced the introduction of Matter support to its Decora Smart Wi-Fi 2nd Gen portfolio of devices.
Integrators with clients that use existing Decora Smart Wi-Fi devices that are part of the rollout will be provided a firmware update via the My Leviton app upon availability in early 2023. With the integration of Matter, customers will now be able to connect their Leviton Decora Smart devices locally to any Matter-enabled smart home platform of their choice. This is in addition to the product line’s current compatibility with the most popular smart platforms, including Amazon Alexa, Hey Google and Apple HomeKit.
Local control, easy enrollment, and interoperability available through Matter support will provide future and existing Decora Smart users with a simplified experience to confidently connect to their systems of choice. Additionally, homeowners can continue to use the My Leviton app to access a wide range of features that spans from tuning the lighting control performance of bulbs and fixtures with fade rates, preset light levels and setting minimum/maximum dim/bright adjustments, to night settings, away mode, custom dashboards, and more.
The first available 2nd Gen products to feature Matter compatibility are the Decora Smart Wi-Fi 600W Dimmer and 15A Switch. Additional Wi-Fi 2nd Gen devices are planned for future updates.
“With decades of smart home experience, Leviton believes in the benefits that Matter brings to our smart home customers,” explains James Shurte, senior product manager of smart home for Leviton.
“We’re thrilled to provide Decora Smart Wi-Fi 2nd Gen customers with an easy upgrade path via upcoming firmware updates.”
