Babcock Ranch Innovation Way

Babcock Ranch Innovation Way
Babcock Ranch’s Innovation Way: Pulte Builds Homes of the Future in America’s First Solar Powered Town

Showcasing the latest new and emerging technology, the homes in the ambitious Innovation Way community located in Southwest Florida, spear-headed by developer Babcock Ranch, boast a wide range of Smart and Green features to provide residents a safer and more convenient, environmentally-friendly lifestyle. Leviton and builder partner, Pulte Homes, worked together to include the latest electrical devices in their Cobblestone floor plan, delivering on Pulte’s project mission, “to feature cutting edge, advanced eco-friendly building systems and smart home technology.”

The Load Center of the Future...Today!

At the core of each home sits the Leviton Load Center – the heart of the electrical system. Engineered using advanced technology, the Leviton Load Center offers enhanced safety features as well as optional smart functionality. Leviton GFCI circuit breakers are the only GFCI circuit breakers currently on the market that prevent reset if ground-fault pro- tection is lost. By choosing to install smart circuit breakers, the Leviton Load Center is elevated to an energy management tool, allowing users to connect to the My Leviton app and access their load center’s data via smartphone, tablet or desktop. Boasting a modern design and attractive white enclosure with optional observation window, the indoor Leviton Load Center is aesthetically appealing, making it the ideal choice for placement anywhere in the home.

Smart Lighting Enhancements

By selecting Leviton Decora Smart® lighting controls, Pulte gives its customers the ability to manage light- ing using the free My Leviton app or by voice command with leading voice assistants that work with Decora Smart devices. Control goes well beyond turning lights ON and OFF. Decora Smart Wi-Fi® Dimmers with seamless app control make it easy to dim or brighten lighting for ambiance, create scenes for any activity, and program lighting schedules for enhanced safety and security. Installing the Decora Smart Voice Dimmer with Amazon AlexaTM Built-in takes the technology up a notch. This modern device combines easy Wi-Fi lighting with the convenience of the Amazon Alexa voice assistant in a single, sleek unit that can be placed in any room of the home.

When multiple Smart devices are installed in a space, everything can be managed from one central location. The Decora Smart® Wi-Fi® 4-Button Controller makes that happen! The 4-Button Controller provides sophisticated in-wall control of multiple Decora Smart Wi-Fi devices, room lighting scenes, and whole house lighting activities with the touch of a button.

Josh Graeve, Division President for Pulte Homes, summed up the advantages of smart lighting, “Innovation Way at Babcock Ranch was an exciting project that brought together the leaders in the industry who are paving the way to make homeowners’ lives easier through technology and innovation. Leviton was the clear choice for our lighting and data network controls. Our homeowners find their products simple and easy to use.”

Smart living doesn’t end there. Smart door locks add yet another layer of desirable technology to the home. Door Lock industry-leader Schlage teamed up with Leviton to integrate app-enabled Wi-Fi locking and light- ing activities. This integration allows users to conveniently trigger lighting activity associated with lock activity for improved home safety and security – for instance, unlocking the door triggers lights ON; locking the door triggers lights OFF. Users can also take advantage of AWAY mode, which creates randomized lighting activity to help create a “lived-in” look while away from home.

With the scope of smart home products expanding daily, the future is bright for home builders to explore the latest options and give new homeowners all the safety, security and convenience the industry has to offer. Innova- tion Way serves as a template as to what is possible!
