Simplify jobs

Switching with Levven simplifies jobs related to the electrical installation by eliminating the wire between the switch and the electrical load.

To eliminate the switch leg, Levven separated the traditional switch into two components:

  • the electrical contacts portion, called the Levven Controller
  • the rocker portion, called the Levven Switch

Levven switches communicate via RF (radio frequency) to turn electrical loads on, off, and dim.

Two-component switch products have been trusted by electrical professionals for over twenty years. Levven-patented technology has made two-component switching competitive for residential installations.

Preserving profits

Wired switches require up to eight trades to “work around” the electrical switch boxes. Errors by any one of these eight results in multiple trades returning to the site to complete repairs and claim back costs. The consequence is delaying construction, loss of momentum and profit for the many businesses involved.

NO insulating switch wire penetrations.
NO cutting around switch boxes.
NO repairing holes around boxes.

Switching with Levven eliminates the switch boxes altogether. This improves consistency, quality, and speed for all eight trades to complete the home faster. Switching with Levven provides the trades and builders a means to simplify jobs, reduce costs, deliver the project on time, and keep the forecasted profit.

Expanding the capacity of your existing labor

Simplified jobs enable each crew to complete more installations per week.

Builder Magazine reports that “for every young person entering the construction workforce, five are aging out of the field.”

Switching with Levven expands the capacity of the electrical trades by eliminating the switch leg. The electrical rough-in for a single-family starter home is completed 25%+ faster, and trim crews are 5%+ faster.

Electrical crews complete their work

25% faster

Trim / finish crews complete their work

5% faster

Single-family starter homes are delivered

2+ days faster

All the trades that follow the electrical rough-in complete their work faster, completing a single-family starter home 2+ days sooner so they can move onto the next project.

Increasing the size of the home, ceiling height and level of finish increases the time savings.

Helping builders sell more homes

Add more value together

When the manufacturer, trade, and builder align to eliminate costs that don’t add value to the home, new homes become affordable to more buyers – benefiting all stakeholders.

Switching with Levven lowers cost, while simultaneously increasing the value of the new home.

The Levven builder calculator identifies the financial and competitive consequences related to wired switches. This information helps the builder and trades – downstream of the electrical contractor – to agree on recoverable and transferable savings to benefit all businesses.

Levven liberates builder sales people from “selling” a technology product. They share with each buyer why Levven Controls is a standard feature in every home and offer portable switches, all off switches and Levven Q to suit the buyers. Adding this simple step the builder’s sales process increases profits for the builder and electrical trade.

Elevating the value of the electrical installation

Smart switch products are widely available from home improvement retailers. Home buyers have no urgency to purchase smart switches with their new home because they can add them at any time as a DIY project.

Unlike all other smart switches, only Levven Controls installations give mobile device accessible switches throughout the home with no cost to the buyer, builder, or trade.

To calculate the competitive value, multiply the retail price of a wired smart switch by the number of switches in the home. Wired smart switches would add thousands of dollars to the home price.

Switching with Levven is a financial and brand differentiator for the home builder and electrical trade. Smart switches throughout the home is a feature pre-owned homes and retail cannot match.

Mobile device accessible

Levven is the only way for the trade and builder to provide mobile device access to all the electrical controls throughout the home without legacy costs, support, or returning to the home after delivery.

Home buyers purchase Levven Q to access, control, and personalize all the Levven products in the home on their smartphone, without additional trade support.

The quick start guide packaged with Levven Q, together with the on-screen wizards in the free Levven mobile app, assist buyers in connecting and setting up their controls. With the one-time setup complete, owners can:

  • Name all the controllers and switches
  • Change switch and controller pairings
  • Operate one or multiple controllers
  • Update software over the air

The Levven application protocol interface (API) is available to other manufacturers like Alexa and Google to integrate their products and Levven Controls to work together.

Conservation results that power the bottom line

Conserving Materials

Electrical contractors have proved switching with Levven conserves 600+ feet of wire in a single-family starter home. More wire is conserved when homes are larger, have higher ceilings, or require more electrical loads to be switched.

If all new homes in North America were constructed with Levven Controls, we’d save over 1 billion feet of copper wire. That amount of wire would circle our planet 7.85 times – every year.

Placed end-to-end, the switch boxes conserved in one year would stretch between New York City and San Antonio, Texas.

The combined amount of wire nuts, staples, and cable protection plates conserved would fill an Olympic size swimming pool every year.

Environmentally-Friendly Message

Switching with Levven shows a powerful, easy-to-understand conservation virtue that buyers can take pride in. They know their new home played a part in conserving copper, steel, and plastic for future generations.

The economical, technical, and end-user rationale to continue wasting materials in wiring switch legs has been eliminated.

Attract new business by offering an electrical installation that includes a powerful conservation value that’s good for environment, brand, and bottom line.
