Leviton introduced its new Decora humidity sensor and fan control devices, designed to work with ventilation fans to create a more comfortable environment in areas prone to dampness and humidity.
The sensor and fan controls are available in two models—a single pole humidity sensor and fan control, and a combination humidity sensor and fan control with light switch. Both models automatically detect excess humidity in a room and activate the ventilation fan to lessen condensation, which helps reduce mold and mildew. The fan will then automatically switch off after the set timeout period.
The devices feature user-friendly controls to adjust sensitivity and timeout settings as well as operating modes for bath exhaust fan, air cycle, and humidistat. Both devices offer users the option of manually turning the ventilation fan on to address immediate needs.
For ease of installation, the devices feature a slim profile and do not require a neutral wire to install. Flexible installation options include wiring with a neutral wire if available, or by using an earth-ground connection.
The devices are compatible with Decora and Decora Plus wallplates and are ideal for use in bathrooms, basements, laundry rooms, and home spas.
