MELVILLE, N.Y., Oct. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Leviton, a leading global manufacturer of electrical devices, can make the transition to Standard Time even easier for homeowners with its Vizia+ 24-Hour Programmable Timer. The timer can be programmed to automatically adjust to and from Daylight Saving Time, allowing homeowners to enjoy an effortless transition when clocks are turned back one hour on Nov. 6.
The Vizia+ 24-Hour Programmable Timer features a built-in astronomical clock that automatically adjusts the timer to local sunrise and sunset times for year-round efficient lighting control. The wall-mounted timer is easy to program for precise automation of all indoor and outdoor lighting. With the random option setting, lights can be programmed to turn ON and OFF at varying intervals within a 15-minute range, giving the home a consistent and secure appearance. The device is particularly useful for second residences, where owners may not have easy access to lighting timers.
"Our Vizia+ 24-Hour Programmable Timer eliminates the need to manually reset all automatic home lighting timers, which is a real convenience and time saver for homeowners," said James Sherman, Marketing Director, Residential. "Plus, it self-adjusts regularly to local sunrise and sunset times so homeowners can simply program their indoor and outdoor lighting to turn ON at dusk. With the timer, homeowners won't need to constantly re-program timer settings or return home to a dark house."
In addition to the Vizia+ 24-Hour Timer, Leviton offers a line of digital plug-in timers that also feature an astronomical clock and random option setting. Perfect for control of indoor lamps and seasonal lighting, they are programmable in the same user-friendly fashion as the Vizia+ 24-Hour Timer and coordinate with Leviton's Decora® devices and wallplates.
The entire Leviton family of timers is available through Leviton's network of electrical distribution locations. For more information, visit www.leviton.com/green.
