On March 26, Leviton launched new connection capabilities with a wide range of Nest devices through the Works with Nest program. This allows Nest Learning Thermostats, Nest Cam and Nest Protect to work together with Leviton Decora Smart with WiFi technology to automate homeowners’ lights.
The free My Leviton app does not require technical knowledge to synch up to a user’s Nest account. Once the two systems are synched up, users can have their Leviton lights turn on anytime a Nest Cam detects motion or whenever the Nest Protect detects carbon monoxide or smoke in the home.
Aaron Ard, senior director of engineering for Leviton Energy Management, Controls & Automation, said: “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. 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.”
