Leviton Decora Smart Dimmer review

 

The Leviton Decora DH6HD Dimmer Switch, Leviton's newest, looks and works just like a regular light switch, but it also works with Apple HomeKit , letting you control it remotely from Apple 's Home app on your iPhone or by using a Siri command. At $50...

The switch is really easy to use and the simple design makes it hard to get confused with the controls. It also flows well with the Leviton Decora app and HomeKit, which give you greater control over brightness settings and, for $50 (roughly converted...

The physical controls are stiff and awkward and it can only work with HomeKit. Sorry, Android, Google Home and Alexa users. The design is also plain.

The switch works well and it's easy to get running, but the clunky physical controls, lack of compatibility outside Apple and plain design prevent it from being a really great product.

Leviton's smart switch comes up just a little short

 

Check out this switch by Leviton that connects with Apple's HomeKit.

Leviton Decora Smart Wi-Fi review: Recent upgrades pile on the control options

 

Added support for Nest and IFTTT brings Leviton's Wi-Fi-based smart products closer to a buy rating.

Smart home hub not required ; Good control options (Alexa, Google Assistant, IFTTT, and Nest) ; Simple-to-use app ; Integrated onboard power button ; Grounded outlet supports appliances with small motors ; Simple installation

Relatively complex hardware installation ; Half-baked geofencing feature ; Wall plate not included ; Just a bit large ; No dimmer control

Leviton’s hubless, Wi-Fi-connected line has undertaken some smart upgrades in the last year, but rewiring in-wall switches hasn’t become any easier. That said, new connections to Nest and IFTTT may ease the sting of the electrical work a bit, while...

Leviton Decora Smart Voice Dimmer with Amazon Alexa review: Two smart home devices in one

 

This highly capable smart dimmer is also 98 percent of an Amazon Echo smart speaker.

Alexa with no footprint, exposed power cord, or wall wart ; No smart home hub required ; Lots of options for lighting control and integration with other smart home devices

Wi-Fi dependent, so range could be an issue; and it operates only on 2.4GHz networks ; Doesn’t support Alexa’s whisper mode ; Tinny speaker, and it can’t be paired with a Bluetooth speaker ; No HomeKit support

In addition to having Alexa onboard, Leviton’s Voice Dimmer works with Google Assistant and IFTTT, which opens lots of avenues for integration with other smart home devices. Even if you have nothing more than Amazon’s Alexa app, you’ll find lots of...

Leviton Decora Smart Wi-Fi 4-Speed Fan Controller review: No hub required

 

The logical (if not best) choice of fan control if you've settled on the Decora Smart Wi-Fi platform for smart home control.

Enables ceiling-fan control via voice, app, or buttons on the wall ; Doesn’t require a Wi-Fi bridge or smart home hub ; Supports dual-band Wi-Fi ; Very easy to install and set up

Button for adjusting fan speed is tactilely unpleasant ; Wi-Fi dependent, so range could be an issue ; No HomeKit support

If you never interact with the physical controls on Leviton’s Decora Smart Wi-Fi 4-Button Fan Controller and only use Leviton’s app or a digital assistant to control it, it’s every bit as good as Lutron’s Caséta Smart Fan Speed Control. The design of...

Leviton Decora Smart Wi-Fi 4-Button Controller review: This device fits its niche almost perfectly

 

This Wi-Fi smart home device can control Leviton light switches, dimmers, outlets, and ceiling fans all over your home. But it's not designed to control a local load.

Each of its buttons can control multiple smart lighting and ceiling fan controls ; Instant response time ; Very easy to program using the My Leviton app

Not designed to control a local load ; No visual feedback loop to inform you the state of a controlled device ; One button needed to activate a lighting scene, and a second button to turn it off

The fact that Leviton’s Smart Wi-Fi 4-Button Controller isn’t designed to control a local load makes it a highly specialized device. If you’re not replacing something similar, as I did, installing it in existing construction will be a lot of work. If...
