Frequently asked question

Do these work locally on wifi without internet, or is it completely dependent on an outside server?

I've tested these and they won't work without an internet connection at all. The app won't work without the cloud. Even when the switch is configured and controlled by home assistant it won't work when you unplug from the cloud. They are completely dependent on an outside server. I didn't realize this until my purchase… see more I've tested these and they won't work without an internet connection at all. The app won't work without the cloud.

I didn't realize this until my purchase. I'm returning these and am going to try the TP-LINK Kasa switches.

is auto shutoff easy to use?

I do not have the outlet. I have smart switches. But I am very familiar with the leviton app for iOS and Android. Super easy to use and very user friendly. I have my exterior lights set to auto on and auto off. Just set it to your liking and you don't even have to think about it. Hope this helps

Can you tell with the iphone app weather the power to appliance or lamp is on?

I have their Decora light switch and you can see the state of the light and I would think it would be the same for the wall plug...

Could I use this top turn roof heat cable on/off....and it will be in a dry box?

Sure, as long as the ampacity was within specs. I use these to control my outside landscape lights.

    Simple Setup, Works as Expected, No Hub Needed

    I’ve been interested in automating my home for some time and wanted to try out the new Wi-Fi devices from Leviton. I’ve had good luck with Leviton products in the past, and it looks they have a complete line of Wi-Fi devices. The devices also come with a 5-year warranty. I decided to start simply with an immediate need I had. I was tired of reaching for the outlet behind my Christmas tree to turn the lights on the tree on and off. I decided to buy a DW15A plug-in outlet to switch the lights on and off automatically.
    The device is attractive and seems solidly built. It came with detailed installation instructions and a getting started guide in English, French, and Spanish. I followed the getting started guide and installed the ‘My Leviton’ app from the iOS app store. There were a number of Leviton apps when I searched for ‘My Leviton’. I installed the first one listed, which was the desired ‘My Leviton’ app.
    The app installed without issue and gave me the option to sign up for an account. I entered the requested information (including the required overly complex ‘strong’ password) and was sent an email to verify my email address. I clicked on the verification link in the email and pressed continue in the app. The app then asked me to set up my residence and offered a default name for my residence. I decided to enter a new name for my residence. It then asked for my location. The app could determine my location or I could enter my address. I decided to enter my address. This completed setting up my residence, and then the app prompted me to add a device.
    I plugged in my device and verified that the LED was blinking green. I followed the instructions in the app which required me to find my device in the Wi-Fi settings of my phone. I selected the device in the list of Wi-Fi networks and returned to the app as instructed. The app connected to the device and asked me to select my home Wi-Fi network to add the device to the network. I selected my network and entered the password for the network, and the device connected to the network. There was an option to ‘Identify Device’. I clicked on this and the LED blinked different colors for a few seconds to show that I had enrolled the correct device. In my case I only had one device, so there shouldn’t have been any issue. I could see where this would be helpful, though, if you had several devices to enroll. I named my device ‘Christmas Tree’ and setup was complete.
    I then used the app to manually turn the lights on and off a few times. It worked flawlessly and was quick! As soon as I tapped the button in the app I heard the relay in the device click and the lights turned on/off.
    I then clicked the arrow next to the device name. This displayed details on the device and had an option for settings. The only setting I could change was called ‘Status LED Behavior’. The choices were ‘LED Off’, ‘Status Mode’, and ‘Locator Mode’. The default ‘Locator Mode’ turns the LED on when the load is off, and off when the load is on. ‘Status Mode’ does just the opposite. ‘LED Off’ turns the LED off all the time. I tried each of these settings, but decided to leave it in the default ‘Locator Mode’.
    I went back to the device details and saw options to ‘Identify Device’, ‘Reconfigure Wireless’, ‘Update Firmware (1.3.3)’, and ‘Remove this Device’. ‘Identify Device’ blinked the LED as before. ‘Reconfigure Wireless’ is used if you want to change the Wi-Fi network used by the device. ‘Update Firmware’ is used to update the firmware in the device. I assume ‘Remove this Device’ would remove it from my residence, but I didn’t see any documentation of this.
    It wasn’t clear that I needed to update the firmware in the device. The ‘Update Firmware (1.3.3)’ looked just like everything else in the details list. I saw at the bottom of the page the serial number of my device and the version number was listed as ‘1.0.9, CP 1.5’. Assuming this ‘version number’ was the firmware version, it looked like there was newer firmware available for my device. I decided to try updating the firmware in the device before proceeding further.
    I clicked on ‘Update Firmware (1.3.3)’ and the firmware update process started. The update process took a couple of minutes before I received a message that the update succeeded. ‘Update Firmware (1.3.3)’ no longer appeared in the details list, but the version number at the bottom of the page still showed ‘1.0.9, CP 1.5’. I went back to the device page and back into details, and now the version number displayed ‘1.3.3, CP 1.5’, so I guess it was just an app display issue.
    I verified that the device still worked properly then decided to try entering a schedule. I clicked on ‘Schedules’ at the bottom of the page and then selected ‘Add a Schedule Now’. I decided to use the built-in scheduling wizard. It first prompted me to name the schedule. I tried accepting the default ‘My Schedule’, but I got an error that the name needed to be at least two characters long. So I guess it really wasn’t the default name (maybe it’s an app problem). I named the schedule ‘Schedule’ and then was presented with a list of available devices. ‘Christmas Tree’ was the only device I had. I selected it and was asked to choose whether the device should turn on or off when the schedule runs. I selected ‘on’ and was asked to set the start time. Since I wanted to do a quick test, I selected ‘select a time’ and specified a time about five minutes later. There was an option to select an end time, so I selected it and specified a time two minutes after the start time. I was then given the option to select what days the schedule should run. I left every day selected, and I was done. I waited a few minutes and the schedule worked exactly as specified.
    I then edited the schedule to turn on at sunset and off at 11:00 p.m. The lights on the Christmas tree turned on and off as expected every day.
    All in all I’ve been extremely pleased with the Leviton DW15A.
    I plan to get some of Leviton’s Wi-Fi wall switches to automate more of my home. I’ve read some reviews where people have had difficulty with the in-wall devices, but most of these seem to be because the Leviton devices require a neutral wire to be connected. I think this is probably true of most Wi-Fi switches since they need to be powered to communicate. This shouldn’t be a problem for me since I have neutral wires in most of my junction boxes. I know that there are other automation technologies that don’t require a neutral wire, but all of these require some kind of hub to enable Internet connectivity. I like that I don’t need a hub with these Leviton devices.

    Thoughtful Hardware and App Design Make these Devices Winners!

    I’m thinking of more possibilities throughout my home after installing and using my first WiFi enabled dimmer switch. I installed this nicely designed Leviton dimmer switch with WiFi built in after trying their easy to install WiFi Plug-in Outlet and loving the convenience it instantly provided to my living room lighting.
    I replaced my finished basement light switch with the DW6HD model WiFi wall switch dimmer. The only lighting switch for this finished basement is located at the top of the basement stairwell since the house was built in 1949 which we have grown accustomed to. If we want to dim the lights to better enjoy the entertainment center located there, someone would have to walk up the stairs and adjust the dimmer while someone in the room shouts “that’s good” when the best lighting level is reached. Well now with this new connected technology installed we can be in the room and use the intuitive My Leviton app to adjust the lighting from our seat. It sounds trivial but it’s really transformative. And if you consider the option of wiring for an additional switch in that room I’d be saving hundreds of dollars. Ha!
    The My Leviton app that pairs with the switch, like mentioned for the plug-in, is easy to setup and use. Paired with voice control from either Amazon Alexa or Google Home options makes it even better.
    Packaging was minimal with a quick start guide and an illustrated multilingual instruction sheet. The DIY installation of the switch will vary for each installer and existing wiring situation you have. Leviton instructions are straightforward and clear but like in my case what I found the wire colors in my wall electric box was not exactly what Leviton depicts in their illustrations so there were some trial and error steps that added to my installation as each trial requires shutting off the circuit switch in the main electric box of the home for safety. Subsequent future switch installs will be quicker with my learning, and I will no doubt being adding more of these smart dimmer switches soon.
