Wire-Free Controls for Inspectors

What are Levven Controls?

Levven controls use a hard-wired on/off or dimming controller in an electrical box and a battery-powered (10 year) switch transmitter which can be mounted on any surface.

  • Move or add switches to accommodate changing lives and spaces.
  • Change what a switch controls at any time.
  • Set one switch to control multiple rooms or the whole home.

Why Use Levven Controls?

  • People have controls when and where they want them.
  • Controls look and operate like traditional switches.
  • Mount on building surfaces where people expect switches.
  • Controls can be portable for convenient control when people move about.
  • Line voltage removed from the vicinity of the switch for improved safety.
  • Secure hard wireless connection.
  • Conservation of steel, plastic and copper building materials.

How do Levven Controls Work?

Levven switches and controllers work together to wirelessly turn electrical loads on and off.

A wireless switch sends on/off commands to controller(s) located in electrical junction box. A controller can switch multiple lights up to its load type rating. Use more controllers when the load is larger than a single controller’s rating.

Improved Safety

Levven Controls eliminate live voltage at the switch, which means it they be installed in areas where traditional switching is unsafe. Small bathrooms can now have switches inside the bathroom.

Switch use in commercial and industrial areas as allowed by the Canadian Electrical Code. Levven Controls are a safe way to deliver convenient switching for consumers and businesses.

Personal Security

Zone and all on-off master switching provide additional security opportunities for consumers and industry. Because Levven Controls can easily be paired to one or more controllers that can control a bank of lights, this option becomes available to everyone. Security guards can turn lights on or off from safe locations. Home owners can turn on some or all their home lights as they drive up.

A switch can be paired to turn on the bedroom lights, the hallway lights and the bathroom lights for their child or elderly parent.
