Description

One of the best options for applying smart functionality to an in-wall switch is to replace the existing module with with a Leviton 15 Amp Decora Smart Switch. The device connects across a local WIFI network so that it can be used with Apple HomeKit and the Leviton Decora Smart Home App.

Compatibility with Apple HomeKit makes it much easier to control the devices set up with your in-wall switch. HomeKit devices can be controlled remotely from virtually anywhere, as long as you have access to your iOS device. HomeKit also provides the ability to control the device through voice commands that are sent through Siri. However, all programming set up for the smart switch will be done through the Leviton Decora Smart Home App.

Any hardwired lights, ceiling fans, and other switch-operated devices can be used with the Decora Smart Switch. No external hub is needed for using the device. Simply connect it to the wiring, and set it up using the Leviton App. You can also use the app for over-the-air (OTA) firmware updates when needed. The device is single pole or three-way compatible. The hot, neutral, load and ground wires are required for installation. The traveler wire is optional, but required for multi-switch applications. An On/Off LED light displays the current status.

Reviews
Good In-Wall Switch for HomeKit
Submitted on 09/22/2020 Alarm Grid

The Leviton DH15S-1BZ is an in-wall smart light switch designed for use with the Apple HomeKit platform. The switch connects with a local WIFI network to integrate with HomeKit. This allows iOS users to control the device remotely using their iPhones. The smart switch can also be operated using voice commands that are sent through the Apple Siri voice assistant. Overall, the Leviton DH15S-1BZ is a great light switch option for HomeKit users. However, non-HomeKit users won't really be able to get much out of it. But Alarm Grid gives the Leviton DH15S-1BZ a 5-Star score due to its HomeKit capabilities.

The main thing to like about the Leviton DH15S-1BZ is its ability to interface with HomeKit. As we mentioned before, the HomeKit integration allows the user to control the switch remotely through an iPhone and by making voice commands through Siri. We also appreciate the fact that the Leviton DH15S-1BZ can be set up and controlled through the Leviton Decora Smart Home App. This provides greater control over the accessory so that you can configure it exactly how you like. One other major positive is how the Leviton DH15S-1BZ works with most types of lights and ceiling fans. It can even be used with many other switch-operated devices.

The biggest downside for the Leviton DH15S-1BZ is how it doesn't really serve much use for users without Apple HomeKit. While you can control it through the Leviton Decora Smart Home App, that platform does not offer many integration possibilities. We also do not like how the Leviton DH15S-1BZ requires a neutral wire. There are other in-wall smart switches that do not require a neutral wire, so that has to be seen as downfall. Additionally, a traveler wire is needed if you plan to use the Leviton DH15S-1BZ in a 3-way or multi-pole configuration. Again, various other in-wall switches have eliminated this requirement, even in multi-pole wiring configurations. After considering everything, we still give the Leviton DH15S-1BZ a 5-Star rating.

Good: HomeKit, Leviton App, Works w/ Nearly All Lights & Fans

Bad: Limited for Non-HomeKit Users, Requires Neutral Wire, Traveler Wire Needed for Multi-Pole Setup

Bottom Line: 5 Stars
