Leviton Manufacturing Company

has entered into a technology alliance with Crestron Electronics and joined its family of I2P Coalition of Industry Partners. The partnership will focus on joint marketing of the companies’ complementary audio/video and lighting control solutions, beginning with the development of a system interface that enables Crestron’s line of home automation systems to interoperate with Leviton’s Dimensions D3200 series architectural lighting control system.

"We’re excited to join the growing list of Crestron’s I2P Coalition Partners," says Tom Leonard, director of marketing for Leviton’s lighting control division. "As leaders in our respective industries, Leviton and Crestron can offer sophisticated, easy-to-use control systems that integrate audio, video, computer, Internet, and lighting control solutions for homes and businesses."

Leviton’s Dimension D3200 lighting control system is a self-contained multipoint dimming and scene control system for home theatre and commercial lighting control applications. It features a self-contained dimmer unit with an IR receiver. It offers eight convenient scene buttons for a total of 32 scenes per configuration and 248 zones. It features a unique one-touch control for scene changes and menu-driven wizards that guide users through set-up and programming of the device.

"We’re pleased to add the Leviton brand to our I2P Program," says Chris Wildfoerster, market development manager for Crestron. "Lighting solutions are critical in today’s homes and businesses. Our I2P control modules enable plug-and-play integration of Leviton’s advanced lighting control system into our total home automation solutions."
