Vizia RF +™ Wireless Lighting Control Attracts Developers Seeking Superior Performance in Z -Wave® Technology Integration

Leviton's popular wireless Vizia RF + technology is the top choice by leading developers

Denver, September 5, 2008 - Leviton's Vizia RF + technology is quickly positioning itself as the leading choice for bridging Z -Wave lighting control products to other leading home control platforms. Using popular RS232 integration methods, leading third -party developers specializing in integration

with Crestron® and AMX® systems are busy creating highly sought after integration solutions.

Leviton enables integration by making the Vizia RF + technology Serial Protocol documents available free of charge on the Leviton website (www.leviton.com) in the home automation section. Developers are invited to develop solutions "royalty free". Leviton offers its Plug -in Serial Interface
Module RS232 (model VRC0P -1L) through electrical distributors nationwide. The integration development protocol documents are available free of charge on the Leviton website in the home automation section.

"This opens up whole new worlds of compatibility with Vizia RF + technology," says Grant W. Sullivan, Product Marketing Manager for Leviton. He adds, "Integration with these major brands of touch screens and control solutions continues the trend of Vizia RF + technology being an affordable and desirable system in the retrofit and new construction markets."

Third party Creston integration solutions are now shipping from Zwave Products Inc.'s website
(www.zwaveproducts.com) and their developer Rolling Thunder Software, a Crestron Authorized
Independent Programmer (CAIP). Together with Leviton's Vizia RF + RS232 module, this third -party developer has been successful in producing bridge libraries that allow Creston hardware systems to understand and interface with the Vizia RF + lighting and home control products.

On the AMX side, GSLogic, is a AMX Certified Expert (ACE), an Independent Programmer certified to develop for AMX products. They have developed products that focus on three key applications: the Board Room package, the Home Theater package and the Total Residential package. Their software communicates with the Vizia RF + serial adaptor to communicate with the AMX touch screens and control products.

Leviton's Plug -in Serial Interface Module RS232 (model VRC0P -1L) is the gatekeeper product that allows the software solutions to communicate with a Vizia RF + technology -based installation. Through the device, companies can easily control individual dimmers, switches, lamp and appliance modules. They also have the ability to communicate and control scenes and areas throughout the
system. This serial adaptor invites developers to ride the Z -Wave technology and allows
communication with many popular Z -Wave products.

The Vizia RF + product line represents Leviton's most advanced statement in residential wireless lighting and home control technology. Sleek, streamlined in appearance with a highly pleasing aesthetic design, and integrated Z -Wave technology, Vizia RF + products complement a wide range of decorating styles.
