Leviton Launches Plug-In Electric Vehicle Charging Stations with My Leviton App Compatibility

14 March 2024

Leviton, a leading provider in residential electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) and wireless smart home technology, today announced the launch of a plug-in version of the EV Series Smart Home. Originally launched in January 2023 with hardwired versions only, EV Series Smart Home stations are compatible with the My Leviton App, allowing users to take control of their entire smart home including lighting, load centers, and EV Charging.

"As the EV charging industry continues to grow and expand into new areas, so does Leviton," said Andrew Taddoni, director of EVSE business development and product management, Leviton commercial & industrial. "The new plug-in charger is just the latest expansion of our portfolio, providing EV owners with the same benefits of our hardwired EV Series Smart Home stations, plus the added benefit of portability and flexibility."

Using the My Leviton app, users can schedule efficient charging sessions in advance, such as scheduling during off-peak utility hours to save on electricity bills and qualify for many residential rebate and incentive programs. Additionally, users can remotely stop and start charging from anywhere if the vehicle is plugged in, view status, receive fault notifications, and more.

In addition to viewing the EV Series, My Leviton app allows for control of the Leviton Smart Load Center and the Decora Smart™ Wi-Fi® product lines, letting users perform actions such as viewing real-time load center energy consumption and scheduling lighting scenes.

The EV Series can easily integrate with other Leviton electrical infrastructure solutions, including surge protection devices receptacles. Featuring a NEMA 14-50 plug, the EV Series Smart Home plug-in stations require a NEMA 14-50 receptacle, such as Leviton's new Heavy-Duty EV Charging Receptacles launched in early 2024. In recognition of the rapidly changing EV marketplace and the evolving charger lineup, Leviton has expanded its dedicated EVSE quality and support team, assisting customers with understanding installation requirements, local codes, applications, and rebates and incentives.
