Reviews around plug (4.45 of 5)

  • The bulb and smart plug have to both have dimmer built in
  • I have a plug I can not use because I refuse to change my password on my wifi to a less secure password.
  • The only disadvantage with a Leviton system is that the rest of the smart plugs are more expensive than the generic ones from Amazon ($30+ vs $15), so I use the cheap plugs instead.
  • But both those criticisms apply to almost all WiFi smart plugs
  • I now have 2 Smart WiFi plugs and 3 Smart WiFi Light Switches.

Reviews around app (4.06 of 5)

  • Setup is easy, the app is good, and integration with Alexa works perfectly as well
  • The dimming is nice, but if you change it to whatever magic number the app decides it doesnt like, then expect your lamp to shut down - unplugging it will fix it
  • On top of that, the associated app was slow and you had to log in every time just to use it
  • , the switch is reasonably nice for local control, the app can configure a few things (like min/max dimming levels, bulb type, locator light on/off) which is good
  • The switch works OK manually but the app to control it is such garbage that I can't even create an account to set it up

Reviews around tech support (4.02 of 5)

  • and the electrician had to call in to tech support to find this out
  • I downloaded the wrong one but tech support corrected that in a few seconds!
  • n’t need dimming, but if you do want dimming capabilities this does a great job
  • Just found out from tech support that you can only install one switch per breaker
  • A great (possibly overlooked) feature in the app is the ability to tell the dimmer what type of bulb(s) it is controlling (incandescent, CFL or LED) providing a more linear relationship between slider position in the app and brightness

Reviews around device (3.94 of 5)

  • The other smart devices in the home continue to function, so this makes no sense to me.
  • I can wait to add more Leviton Smart devices in my home
  • It turns out that the issue was the device that I was using.
  • It is one of very few smart home devices that I could find that doesn't require a central hub

Reviews around setup (3.80 of 5)

  • Foolproof setup steps through the app, easy tap on/off switching, and it works flawlessly
  • I thought setup was a little tricky, so choose your room names wisely
  • Setup was easy and it was nice not to have to have a hub.
  • I ran the setup 5 times in a row and all attempts failed.
  • I have the SSID of my IoT network hidden for security reasons, but the setup app for these switches does not support manually entering the WiFi information for the switch to connect to; you are REQUIRED to pick from a list of visible networks.

Reviews around install (3.72 of 5)

  • So you cannot turn the switch on or off from the app as well as not being able to do it with Alexa.
  • Then you can just say "Hey Google, dim pendant to 50 percent" as you head to the dining room and the lighting will almost be done dimming as you enter the room.
  • Tricky install with a 3-pole, requiring Leviton DW15S for "hot" line connection and Leviton Remote switch for secondary "load" connection
  • We were installing three dimmers, the installation hit a glitch with the first one, after powered up it was not showing up in the list of wi-fi networks for me to configure it, while I was debugging what could be the causes since I was seeing the device was in pairing mode, the Tech went about installing the second one (in the same box) which refused to get into pairing mode

Reviews around dim (3.68 of 5)

  • I have now purchased 7 switches and one is bad [ dimmer doesn't work properly and will not connect to the internet ] after calling tech support and being told it was wired improperly
  • In reality, its just a smart switch, not a smart dimmer
  • Bottom line, if you live in an older house or use halogen lights, this dimmer might not work for you
  • It appears that this particular dimmer has a defect but there is a work around.
  • In my search, this is the only smart dimmer out there you can use without a hub

  • The switch works great and is easy to control with the Leviton app
  • Stealing data much?It works with Alexa, but the app is not available for kindle Fires
  • The switch works well for the price and it has an easy install
  • The switch works well with Google Home and is easy to set up.

Reviews around automation (3.18 of 5)

  • i did pre-loaded the app and linked it to the Alexa app before they got here so that saved me time and worked perfectly it was a bit tricky to get the right model number devices the first 4 i
  • I have the ability to control them individually or as a group through the leviton app as well as through alexa.
  • Then you can just say "Hey Google, dim pendant to 50 percent" as you head to the dining room and the lighting will almost be done dimming as you enter the room.
  • To the best of my knowledge Leviton does not have such an offering.- Because of the lack of integration, automation is extremely limited
  • That unfortunately limits the automation you can do with the Leviton switches.

Reviews around connection (2.08 of 5)

  • I find the switches to be solid with good wiring connections.
  • They will configure and work for less than a minute then they lose connection.
  • The electrical connections were straight forward and the connection to my home network went well after I switched the installation procedure from an iPhone to an Androde device
  • Once installed, connection to the app (which is great by the way) is super easy
  • review.10/24 - It’s been over a week and the switch has not lost its connection with Amazon Alexa

Reviews around sound (1.00 of 5)

  • The only issue I have is that when it switches it makes a louder clicking sound than it's dimmer switch counter part
  • Cool concept but has an odd feel to clicking them and a click sound when the get flipped remotely
  • Buzzing sound while incandescent lights are dimmed is annoying
  • My one complaint is that when the switch turns on and off via the app or a schedule it makes a fairly noisy "click" sound.
  • Dimmer controls 10 Leds (About 5w each) have very noisy buzzing sound when i stand next to it

Reviews around feel (1.00 of 5)

  • I really wanted to like these, but after installing my first one tonite, and experiencing the cheap feeling of the build quality of the switch, experiencing multiple failures with the iOS app and noticing that the app doesn't always track the switch state, I am going to remove the one switch that I installed and replace it with a Lutron dimmer, and replace seven other non-remote Luton dimmers with the Luton dimmers that I ordered tonite after deciding to abandon the Leviton dimmers
  • One was mechanically broken (super loose feeling) and the is perfectly wired, linked up, and it simply refuses to work a light
  • Cool concept but has an odd feel to clicking them and a click sound when the get flipped remotely

Reviews around fix (1.00 of 5)

  • Previous App complaints must have been fixed because it NEVER makes me log in once It was installed!
  • i did pre-loaded the app and linked it to the Alexa app before they got here so that saved me time and worked perfectly it was a bit tricky to get the right model number devices the first 4 i
  • Not a difficult fix, but it can be frustrating if it's not working and you don't know why.
  • Been on the phone with Leviton throughout the day and have not had a fix for it yet, very frustrating.
  • If this ‘offline bug’ is fixed for good I will bring this review back up to 5 stars
