Leviton unveils OmniTouch7 Touchscreen for smart home control

Leviton has released the OmniTouch 7 Touchscreen, a glass-front control panel for maintaining security, energy and entertainment smart home features.

"The user-friendly OmniTouch 7 allows for simple setup and intuitive customization for integrators," said Leviton president Jay McLellan. "The new always-there, always-on Touchscreen is plug-and-play, but affords users a variety of options, including showing only necessary icons, the ability to name the building and rooms, separate devices by area and quickly adjust settings like brightness and volume levels."

The OmniTouch features a 7-inch high-resolution screen, large icons, digital microphones and a built-in amplifier and speaker to improve noise and echo cancellation.

Users will be able to view surveillance footage, adjust individual light levels, control thermostats, alert emergency personnel, lock or unlock doors, adjust window coverings and more. It also has the capacity to connect with devices such as additional lights, thermostats or cameras with a simple swipe of the screen.
