Home automation technology is pushing users away from switches and dimmers and toward touchscreen interfaces to manage a variety of functions from lighting to security to HVAC. Leviton’s seventh-generation touchscreen, the OmniTouch 7, aims to address the growing user demand for larger interfaces. Its 7” high-resolution display lets homeowners control systems such as lighting, security, home entertainment, outdoor sprinklers, indoor window coverings, and HVAC from a single interface. Digital slider bars let users adjust lighting levels from zero to 100% power. The system can control up to 64 thermostats. leviton.com
