The Smart GFCI Outlet leverages the latest in open IP-based standards and protocols to provide secure and reliable control of your home. The Smart GFCI Outlet utilizes the IEEE 802.11 Wi-Fi network industry standard to ensure the widest range of compatibility and performance without adding a hub or additional proprietary hardware.
To allow communication to your home when you are away, Leviton developed the My Leviton Cloud service utilizing their US based engineering team to maintain, enhance and support all Leviton Cloud enabled products.
All communication between your mobile device and the Smart GFCI Outlet is protected with industry standard encryption, preventing outsiders from controlling your devices. All communications to the My Leviton cloud are secured with the industry standard TLS 1.2, the same technology used to secure online purchases and banking. Leviton internal security team continuously monitors the uptime and security of the My Leviton cloud service in addition to utilizing independent 3rd party security companies to audit the security of our devices, cloud, and app and confirm compliance with a very high level of security standards.
The Smart GFCI Outlet also has its own level of security considerations. Leviton uses Device Authentication which confirms a unique trusted identity that is programmed into each device at manufacturing, providing secure device to device and device to cloud communication, preventing third parties from spying on communication. Even Over-the-air (OTA) Firmware Updates have a level of protection by downloading updates directly from the My Leviton cloud, with a requirement to verify the integrity and authenticity of the update before applying.
The My Leviton Cloud service utilizes best practices, end to end encryption, and 3rd party auditing to ensure a reliable, secure product experience. Our engineering team is committed to continue to utilize industry best practices while adding new and innovative features to the My Leviton experience.
