Leviton announced the introduction of its new LED Downlight with Motion Sensor, which features a modern aesthetic, superior performance, and offers a wide range of customizable light settings. Applicable to indoor and covered outdoor areas where there is no wall switch or pull-chain overhead lighting, the device creates hands-free convenience and added safety for those entering or leaving a space.
The Energy Star-certified Leviton LED Downlight with Motion Sensor automatically switches its built-in LED light on when it senses motion and automatically switches the light off in the user’s selected choice of either 30 seconds or three minutes after no motion is detected. For added energy-savings, the device’s ambient light override in “nighttime mode” prevents the sensor from switching lights on when there is ample natural sunlight in the space.
“Leviton is proud to offer this comprehensive lighting solution as part of our vast selection of residential products designed to simplify everyday living,” said Maria Velazco, associate product manager, residential. “Our new LED Downlight with Motion Sensor is a simple way for homeowners to add switch-free convenience and enhance the overall safety of their family’s home.”
The device provides users with three selectable color temperature options ranging from a soft white glow (3000K), a daylight glow (4000K), or a crystal white glow at (5000K). Color temperature can be easily customized based upon personal preference by adjusting the integrated color temperature slider switch. The device is equipped with RF immunity for enhanced sensor performance and features a slim profile for easy installation. In addition, no J-box is needed for installation.
The LED Downlight with Motion Sensor is perfect for indoor use in closets, laundry rooms, storage areas, staircases, basements, hallways, attics, and more. It is an ideal solution for retrofit application in areas where there is no switch to control pull-chain overhead lighting. The device can also be used in outdoor applications including covered porches, balcony areas, attached or detached garages, and other covered outdoor areas with no direct exposure to moisture.
