Never seen them before. It sounds like there simular to the Mistro line with a different look. With 1 blue LED instead of 5 green. Maybe in 10 years it will be one more thing to stock on the truck. Myself I would be happy with less dimmer styles out there to keep down inventory.

Did anyone see the 20 amp triplex outlet in the same collection?

Interesting to note that all the switches except one are described as "electronic". Does that mean that they utilize a relay or a triac? If it is not a relay what's the deal with using them with receptacles?

Personally I think these are pretty cool and I know I could sell some on the kitchen remodels I do. I was wondering if anybody had used any or if they are even available. Leviton has a history of advertising new produccts long before you can get them. As for switching a receptacle it looks like the A201-1L would be the one to use as it is an electromechanical switch. This would also be the one for a garbage disposal as well.

It uses some kind of alignment plate with pins to keep exevythin straight on the screwless trim plate.

I wonder if a standard decora trim will fit.

I tried to watch the demo "movie" but gave up after like 5 minutes when I finally learned it can turn the light off.

I like the blue lights on it but I like blue anyway.

I'm not sure because of the nature of demos. But it looked bigger than a normal device. Is it?

I'm as interested as you about them, I might want to consider using them too. But I'm getting miestros pretty cheap now. If that matters.

They do appear bigger than a standard device but only the face is. They fit in a standard box. When they are ganged there is no separation between them. I really like the look and I can think of a bunch of times where these would have been perfect. I have Maestros and Divas and I just installed a Spacer System in my house. Most jobs I do are with decora devices and dimmers. These new devices really make those look outdated.

I think someone finally spelled Maestro right [Linked Image].

I'm always interested in cooler stuff too.

Another new style of dimmer. The more I look at them in the supply house the more I am warming to them. Get a free sample and se for yourself.

Does anyone have pricing for either the Acenti or Aspire lines? I did a web search, and the only mention of any pricing I found was $120!!! for the Acenti triplex receptacle. If that's representative of the entire line, I've gotta say that I really don't think its coolness factor is at the $120 level.
