The cloud-enabled solution was designed for small commercial operations such as retail, office, restaurant and storefront spaces. It features logic scheduling, up to 40 connected wireless two-way sensors and load control, free email or SMS text notifications based on the event, free apps for remote access and free software for setup.
“Leviton Cloud Service and the launch of the Lumina RF family offer a new platform for Leviton’s continued growth in the small commercial building management and automation market,” said Thomas Morgan, director of product management for Leviton security and automation. “Not only is it a powerful and comprehensive wireless solution for retrofits, but franchisees and multiple business owners can remotely control their properties for free via the app, while receiving free email notifications about their property.”
The company noted the Lumina RF family also creates energy savings in new construction and retrofit applications, utilizing wireless sensors and devices to control temperatures, lamps, fans, pumps and third-party window coverings, with access to IP cameras for video surveillance.
The Gateway functions as an energy management coordinator allowing automation of loads and control of multiple properties from smartphone apps, Leviton added.
Customers can choose from a variety of devices, including a 120/277V 10A light switch as well as 5A, 15A and 30A load control modules to turn nearly any light commercial load on and off.
