Connected Electrical Outlets Feature Built-in Wi-Fi Ability

With the launch of Decora Smart Wi-Fi Tamper-Resistant Outlet from Leviton, owners can now have more connected electrical outlets throughout their buildings. Leviton has announced that its latest addition to the Decora Smart Wi-Fi product family, the smart Wi-Fi 15 Amp Tamper-Resistant Outlet, part number DW15R, is available to purchase.

The connected electrical outlets allows building owners to turn lamps or other small appliances that are plugged into the top receptacle on and off through the My Leviton app.

This device, which is designed to match other existing outlets throughout a building, allows owners to turn lamps or other small appliances that are plugged into the top receptacle on and off through the My Leviton app. The device is compatible with Google Assistant devices and all products that support Amazon Alexa, including the Leviton Decora Smart Voice Dimmer, providing voice control such as, “Alexa, turn entryway outlet off.” Both receptacles in the Wi-Fi outlet are tamper-resistant, featuring built-in shutters to prevent the insertion of unintended foreign objects and potential electrical shock.


Customize Control with the My Leviton App

In addition to turning devices plugged into the top receptacle on and off, owners can use the My Leviton App for more customizable control options, including:

  • Schedule Wi-Fi outlets to turn on and off at certain times of the day, including at sunrise or sunset
  • Create scenes with other Decora Smart Wi-Fi devices to control multiple appliances, electronics, lights or fans at once through the app or through voice control
  • Use the auto-shutoff feature in the My Leviton app to turn off appliances or other electronics plugged into the top outlet of the DW15R receptacle after a preset amount of time.

The outlet’s vanishing feedback LED can be adjusted to an individual’s preferred settings through the My Leviton app. This can include showing the load status, having the LED lit to help locate the Wi-Fi outlet in the dark or keeping the LED off if the device is installed in a light-sensitive area. 

As part of the Decora Smart Wi-Fi product family, the Wi-Fi Tamper-Resistant Outlet does not require a hub, and the intelligence is built into itself. A Wi-Fi connection is all users need for set-up and they can rest assured knowing that their schedules will continue to run even during temporary internet outages. By combining the Wi-Fi outlet with other Decora Smart Wi-Fi products, building owners can build a complete smart experience that includes control of dimmers, switches, plug-ins, fan speeds and more.

The Wi-Fi Tamper-Resistant Outlet’s aesthetic is consistent with Leviton Decora products to create a unified look throughout a building. The DW15R ships in white but has color change kits available to match popular interior décor including Light Almond, Ivory, Black, Brown and Gray.
