Leviton Embraces Sponsorship of 2021 This Old House Cottage Community with Focus on Smart Living

Meeting the growing demand for flexible housing and low-maintenance living, TOH’s 2021 Idea House project in Norwalk, CT offers spacious, adapt- able floor plans in a collection of duplexes with contemporary cottage style. Custom builder Jerry Effren set out to build the TOH Cottage Community using the highest-quality, lowest-maintenance building materi- als available, for easy care and ease of living. He selected Leviton for his electrical needs. From industry-lead- ing GFCI, AFCI and Dual Function AFCI/ GFCI safety devices to smart lighting control and load center activities, Leviton has the solution to add safety, convenience and smart functionality to align with the lifestyle of today’s homeowners.

As the hub of the home’s electrical system, the load center is vital to the safety and efficiency of all the electrical elements in the home. By selecting the revolutionary Leviton Load Center with its enhanced safety features, intuitive diagnostics, sleek, white enclosure, and optional smart circuit breakers, Mr. Effren brings the latest advances in power delivery to each cottage in the development. Because every circuit tells a story, Effren chose to install the Leviton Load Center with smart circuit breakers so residents can monitor the real-time energy consumption of anything plugged into their branch circuit. Residents can then use the free My Leviton app to evaluate energy consumption, remotely control any circuit breaker1, and view system status in real time to detect if any critical loads need to be addressed.

In keeping with Smart innovation, Effren installed Leviton Decora Smart® dimmers. These Wi-Fi®- enabled dimmers also connect to the My Leviton app for seamless smart integration. Through the app, users can manage lighting levels, create schedules and orchestrate scenes such as ‘Dinner Time,’ ‘Movie Night,’ or ‘Cocktail Party,’ to get perfectly dimmed mood lighting every time via smartphone, tablet, desktop or voice command.

By offering a whole home solution, Leviton brings over a century of electrical expertise to every job with safe, reliable and technically advanced products for every room in the home.
