MELVILLE, N.Y., Dec. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Leviton today announced Apple Watch® support for the Snap-Link Mobile for iOS application (app). This new app provides the perfect solution for monitoring and controlling Leviton automation systems either remotely or locally and is offered without monthly fees or device licenses. Users can download the app via the Apple App Store® to their compatible iOS devices including iPad®, iPod Touch® and iPhone®, and now extend the app to their Apple Watch.
The Apple Watch extension utilizes watchOS 2 and explicitly allows for control over the most commonly accessed connected devices: lighting loads, the Leviton Omni security system, temperatures and controls that enact a chain of events to enable simultaneous system adjustments throughout the home or business. Existing users of Snap-Link Mobile for iOS may update their app now for free to add-on control to the Apple Watch.
"With the ever-growing popularity of the Apple Watch and the eruption of home automation, it is electrifying to attach Leviton device control to your smart wristwatch," said Aaron Ard, mobile app innovation leader for the Leviton Energy Management, Controls and Automation business unit. "With iOS device compatibility using watchOS2, Leviton controlled home and business owners now have comprehensive and affordable property management in seconds."
Specifically on the Apple Watch, users can enjoy quick access to lighting loads, thermostats, security, and activities. Activities can include "movie time" programming functions whereby with one button press, the lights dim, the doors lock, the window coverings close and the audiovisual equipment activates.
For over three decades, Leviton Omni security & automation systems have provided comprehensive control over residences and commercial properties spanning security, access control, video surveillance, distributed audio, temperature control and lighting or load control using wired and wireless devices, making the addition of the Snap-Link Mobile app the perfect integrated solution with no extra fees or monthly contracts. The Snap-Link Mobile app also allows for control over multiple Leviton managed properties from a tablet or phone, an ideal solution for vacation homes or multi-location business owners.
