[dropcap]L[/dropcap]eviton recently announced a partnership with Pulte Homes as the exclusive provider of smart lighting controls in the new, customizable Pulte Smart Home. As a nationally recognized and trusted smart technology brand, Leviton supports Pulte’s vision to accommodate current and future trends in smart home technology.
Leviton’s award-winning Decora Smart with Wi-Fi Technology product line of dimmers, switches, and plug-ins are now available as an upgrade to Pulte homeowners in their smart technology-enabled homes. The Decora Smart solution is particularly ideal for Pulte, as it does not require a dedicated space in the home for a hub in order to connect with other smart devices. For homeowners, a hubless solution like Leviton’s allows for seamless integration of smart lighting controls now or in the future, with fewer devices. All Pulte smart homes will be built with seamless Wi-Fi reliability and increased bandwidth to support this hubless connection.
“At Leviton, we seek ways to continuously innovate the solutions of the future for builders and homeowners alike,” says Rick Gavenda, Director of Leviton’s builder and developer program. “Leviton’s partnership with Pulte Homes aligns with our company’s vision to make every home a smart home and is an outstanding example of how Leviton is working with smart homebuilders to build for the future.”
The Pulte Smart Home was developed to ensure homeowners have access to solutions suited to support future trends while providing the flexibility to add technology that best fits their individual needs. Whether they wish to add smart devices as the home is built, or months after they move in, homeowners can do so without the cost or interruption to day-to-day life that comes with retrofitting existing homes. Pulte is committed to working with partner providers, like Leviton, that have solutions to support this model.
“Leviton’s Decora Smart with Wi-Fi Technology lighting controls offer the flexible, future-proof technologies Pulte Homes is looking for,” says Diahann Young, Director of Digital Platforms & Innovation at PulteGroup. “The reliable Wi-Fi connectivity is designed to support the future of connected home technology, such as Leviton’s hubless solution. The compatibility with both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant gives homeowners the freedom to choose the technology that works best for them.”
Leviton’s USB charger receptacles, structured media enclosures, and Evr-Green® electric vehicle chargers are also part of the al la carte-style choices for new Pulte homeowners, depending on their specific needs. Additional smart home technology options also include thermostats, door locks, and garage doors.
