The new device features a keypad with three user-customizable buttons to control room scenes or whole house lighting activities, as well as a built-in smart switch that can control general purpose lighting and loads up to 15A. Ideal for entryways, bedrooms and kitchens, homeowners can simply replace their existing standard light switch and gain three Internet of Things (IoT) scene control buttons, plus a fully capable smart switch for connected lights.
You can use the My Leviton app or the Apple Home app to set up the top three buttons with custom scenes and automation activities. For example, control multiple Decora Smart Wi‐Fi devices together using commands such as “All Off”, “Movie Time”, “Party Mode”, “Game Night”, and more. Homeowners can also personalize their scene buttons by ordering custom engraved buttons (available in the U.S. only) through the My Leviton app. Custom scene buttons are available in six color options, including black and gray.
“The Scene Controller Switch works with the My Leviton app and Decora Smart Wi-Fi devices to create a wireless home lighting control system with no complex programming required,” explained James Shurte, senior product manager, Leviton. “Flexible multi-button control options for room scenes or whole house lighting activities, plus the ability to optionally manage HomeKit Scenes and Accessories, makes the Scene Controller Switch an incredibly capable solution for one-touch control of a room or the entire home.”
The bottom button, labeled with a lightbulb icon, controls the home’s connected lighting loads just like a regular switch. It offers the same features and benefits as a Leviton D215S Smart Switch, including voice control with Amazon Alexa, Hey Google, and Apple Siri, as well as scheduling, inclusion in scenes/activities, and an optional auto-shutoff timer capability. Additionally, it can be used in single pole or multi-location applications when paired with the wire-free Leviton DAWSC Anywhere Switch Companion or the wired DD0SR Switch Companions. The Scene Controller Switch connects to Wi‐Fi and does not require a hub or bridge.
Works with HomeKit
Notably, the top three scene buttons can be configured for use with Apple HomeKit. Simply use with an Apple Home Hub to control third‐party HomeKit scenes and accessories like thermostats, locks, and more with the press of a button. As you leave the house, just push a button labeled “All Off” to turn off any HomeKit-compatible devices as well as Leviton Decora Smart Wi-Fi products.
