Samsung SmartThings and Leviton Manufacturing Co., Inc. Announce Strategic Partnership to Offer Affordable, Whole House Automation Through Distribution Channel

Leviton Manufacturing Co., Inc. announced a strategic partnership with Samsung SmartThings, offering a powerful yet affordable automation solution through distribution partners and the professional dealer marketplace. The pre-packaged bundle, part number STKIT-000, includes a Samsung SmartThings Hub, a Leviton VRMX1 Z-Wave Dimmer, and a Leviton VRS15 Z-Wave Switch at a reduced price. Additionally, stocking orders of common Leviton Z-Wave attachment devices, including plug-in modules, will be offered at a special price to distributors and builders. SmartThings offers an open ecosystem of devices and services in which wireless Leviton devices fit perfectly. Comprehensive integrations, Z-Wave and ZigBee chipsets, allow a wide variety of smart devices to be automated and connected devices including light switches to be voice controlled with Google Home and with Amazon Alexa-enabled products like Echo, Tap, and Dot. It also provides easy integration with wireless Leviton lighting controls, fan controls, 15A switches, plug-in load controls, heavy-duty loads controls for compressors as well as generators, sensors, and thermostats. The mesh networking technologies allow for installations in larger homes with dozens of integrated attachment devices for whole house automation. While the strategic partnership to offer a combined Hub, Dimmer, and Switch bundle is unique, Leviton offers high quality and reliable Z-Wave products in the expansive Vizia RF + product line as popular attachments to many popular DIY, professional installed automation and smart security system manufacturers. SmartThings and Leviton have previously partnered for sales promotions, support initiatives, and co-marketing efforts. The partnership is now enhanced with a bundled product solution that's perfect for professional builders, electricians, and integrators, allowing them to quickly make any home a smart home. Additional ongoing enhancements will include advanced certification of new products and features, additional support articles embedded into the SmartThings app, installation and setup videos for professionals on Leviton support websites, and in-person training at distributor locations.
