Leviton Decora Smart Voice Dimmer w/Alexa Built-In

Many Smart Home devices are already compatible with simple voice commands, and as such, allow just you and the power of your voice to make your home come alive. One of those devices is none other than the Leviton Decora Smart Voice Dimmer.

This is a smart voice dimmer that features a full range dimming performance, scheduling, and even Alexa Built-in. However, the best part about it is that in order to use it, absolutely no Smart Hub is required.

The Leviton Decora Smart Voice Dimmer is not only fully compatible with Amazon Alexa, but also with the My Leviton App, and both allow you to control your home’s lights in many different ways.

Not only that, but thanks to its Amazon Alexa Voice Assistant Support/Compatibility, you can use your voice to not only dim and brighten your home’s lights, but also to get Alexa to provide you with an easy way to listen to the news, get weather forecasts, play your favorite music, get answers to any questions you need to ask, and more; much, much more.

Let’s take a look at this smart voice dimmer and all of its cool features.
