We are continuing to bring you reviews of smart home products as part of The Home Depot SmartHome Campaign. Today's post is all about smart light switches.
We got to try out two different switches by Leviton. You may not know the name Leviton, but you may have their products in your home and not know it! When we had electrical work done in the garage earlier this year, the electricians used all Leviton products. It's a company that's been around for a long time and they know their stuff! They have now entered the smart home market with a variety of products including these two switches.
Using smart home switches is a way to automate the function. These switches can be control via an app as well as remotely when you're away from home.
We will not be taking you step by step through the installation of the switches themselves. We are not electrical experts and don't feel comfortable walking you through the process.
We did hardwire theses two switches ourselves, but only did so for the following reasons:
If we had not felt comfortable with the installation process, we would not have hesitated to call in electricians. It's very important that you know your limitations and if electrical work is not in your skill set, don't chance it--call in a professional.
