The Happy Homebodies
We all love our homes, even if they're not very smart, but home ownership can be very challenging. With the addition and installation of even a few smart devices, residences can become more energy-efficient, more user-friendly, and more comfortable. Smart switches, bulbs, thermostats and appliances have revolutionized the way we operate and control our homes.

Anyone who can use a screwdriver and a smartphone has the ability to operate a variety of intelligent devices. Homeowners are now thankful for hands-free operation of any newly installed technology via smartphone app; or with the addition of the Google Home device, Amazon Echo or Dot. Voice control is now on the tip of your tongue.

The Family of TheHappyHomebodies.com, consisting of two parents and two toddlers, identified the most effective use of smart home products, by selecting three rooms in their home to install Decora Smart with Wi-Fi technology by Leviton. The nursery, den, and master bedroom were the choices for their first applications.


The nursery lighting is now a breeze with the addition of plug-in dimmer controls that operate two table lamps. One during bedtime stories for the children; another hidden behind the changing table for another lamp. The two are connected so they come on at the same time when the whole nursery requires lighting. Walking into a dark nursery at 6 A.M. with a squirmy toddler in your arms and simply saying, "Alexa, turn on the nursery lights," is an amazing luxury.

"The playroom was the perfect place to try the Decora Smart plugs with Wi Fi technology." - Jordan G.

The realization that this technology makes life profoundly easier is obvious. Buyers say: 'I never knew I needed this but now I really don't want to function without it.'

Like reversing cameras in our cars, this technology has boundless benefits and appreciation from consumers who wonder how they managed without it.

Mr and Mrs G can now enjoy solace in their den after longs days to watch movies and television. Creating the perfect home theater experience is easy with recessed and overhead lighting using smart Leviton dimmers to allow automatic dimming control - going from 'movie mode' to a fully lit room at the press of a button or command of the voice.


For parents of toddlers, a full nights sleep is rare, so giving their master bedroom some automation features was a huge benefit. In this room, they installed two Leviton Decora Smart switches – one with a dimmer and one without, to control four recessed lights and a ceiling fan. With the Amazon Echo voice control features, users are able to turn the lights and fan on and off while relaxing in bed. Alexa is already used as an alarm and can wake users with music, news and now lighting control.
