Best of IBS 2019: Best Home Technology Product

Best of IBS Awards

Leviton Load Center Wi-Fi-Enabled Circuit Breaker by Leviton Manufacturing Co.

Leviton Load Center Leviton unveiled its next generation of the Leviton Load Center at the 2019 NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS) in February. It is the first load center on the market to offer Wi-Fi connectivity.

In addition to its easy installation and enhanced safety features (including GFCI circuit breakers that exceed the UL/ANSI 943 standard), contractors and homeowners will now be able to monitor their load center’s status through a free mobile app.

Through advanced technology, the Leviton Load Center’s Wi-Fi-enabled circuit breakers communicate with the central data collection unit, which then sends status updates to a mobile app. This allows users to monitor electricity usage on a branch circuit, evaluate usages patterns and send notifications to the user’s mobile device (in the event of a branch circuit trip), plus it permits circuit breakers to receive remote firmware updates. This communication capacity facilitates the diagnostic process for professionals and an overall enhanced user experience.

Here’s what our judges said about the Leviton Load Center Wi-Fi-Enabled Circuit Breaker by Leviton Manufacturing Co.:

  • “Well thought out and top-notch execution. This product is a real game changer for new homes.”
  • “This Wi-Fi-enabled circuit board allows you to monitor energy usage per brand circuit that accurately reports watts supplied to each appliance. It uses this data to identify trends and even predict the next electric bill.”
  • “The functionality and ability to monitor usage on an individual circuit basis will drive accountability of efficient use of power and also identify issues with electrical systems before failure.”
