All They Want for the Holidays is…A Smart Home

Smart Home for the Holidays

Homeowners are looking for contractors who can provide one-stop smart home shopping and services for the holidays. With a little help from Leviton®, you can deliver the gift of home automation installations during the holiday season.

The smart home product market is expected to grow to $35.5 billion by 2020, so the time is ripe for you to grab your market share.

First, decide what products you plan to install. Leviton® has an extensive range of home automation products that includes smart dimmers, switches and plug-in outlets. These will provide safety, comfort and convenience to your customers by allowing them to easily control and schedule lights and appliances from their smartphones or tablets. Select models will even provide them with optional voice control.

Want to make their holidays merry and bright? Install smart dimmers just like a regular light switch (requires a neutral wire) to give homeowners the ability to set any light fixture from 0-100 percent brightness. This will allow them to properly set the mood for holiday dinners. These dimmers are also ideal for bedrooms, kitchens and foyers, as well as for designing impressive lighting scenes for their holiday parties.

Replace their traditional switches with smart switches (neutral connection required). Customers will love that even with the time change they will never come home to a dark home again. They can schedule the porch light to turn on at sunset by using the Leviton app. The switches coordinate with the full line of Decora Smart™ products which include:

  • Decora Smart™ with Bluetooth Technology—Provides local control of lights within a 30-foot range with your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth. Your customer will never have to come home to a dark house ever again. With the touch of a button, they can program their lights and ceiling fans to turn on or off at any given time. Decora Smart with Bluetooth also adds the convenience of raising or lowering the light level all from the comfort of one’s couch.
  • Decora Smart™ with Wi-Fi—Control lights and light levels from anywhere with Android or iOS devices. Create schedules for your customers that adjust devices at preset times, or create scenes for infrequent events like Party Time or Movie Night. Control with voice via Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.  Switch plates are available in multiple colors including black and gray to match any home décor.
  • Decora Smart™ with HomeKit™ Technology—Manage home automation through an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. Use voice controls via Siri to dim a specific light or turn off every light. The free Leviton Decora Smart Home app enables users to turn lights on, off, dim, fade, set motion sensors and control minimum and maximum brightness levels. Use the Apple Home app to inter-operate           with third-party devices like thermostats and door locks. Add an optional Apple TV to create schedules or control remotely.

Your customers who live in apartments can also have automated homes. Provide them with smart plug-in dimmers, which are quick to install and provide the full benefits of a smart home, including scheduling, remote access and voice control. Plug-in dimmers can turn any floor or table lamp into a dimmable light fixture to set the perfect holiday eve by adjusting lamps from 0-100 percent brightness. They can also be used to control small appliances to meet any hectic holiday schedule.

Home automation product benefits also include reduced energy consumption and seamless entertainment options. Let your customers know there are scalable options that fit every income level and lifestyle.

You can help your customers make their homes smarter and safer than ever. That’s something they can be thankful for this holiday season.
