MELVILLE, N. Y., March 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Leviton Decora Digital Dimmer with Bluetooth technology has been named one of Green Builder's "Hot 50 Products" for 2016. The "Hot 50 Products" are selected from manufacturers who optimize efficiency, comfort and performance by integrating connected technology into their products.  Exemplifying this, the Decora Digital Dimmer provides the ability to dim and time lighting without the need of a hub, gateway or internet connection.

The Decora Digital Dimmer is a powerful device combining the best of Leviton dimmer and timer functions with today's technology. Users simply pair the device with the Leviton Decora Digital Dimmer & Timer App and use on-screen menu options to control lights to set the maximum light level for energy savings with Apple or Android smartphones or tablets within a 30-foot range.  The dimmer is compatible with dimmable LED, dimmable CFL, Incandescent, Halogen or Mark 10® Powerline loads, and a matching remote is available for 3-way/multi-control applications.

Designed for contemporary style, the Decora Digital Dimmer also offers homeowners the flexibility to program timed events at set or random times for daily activities or for a "lived-in" look while away. An astronomical clock, automatically set through the connection with a smart device, adjusts for local sunrise/sunset times as well as daylight saving time. Additionally, the device features a countdown sleep timer which can be set for up to 12 hours for added convenience.
