    What's a smart home without a smart circuit breaker? Manage your home’s electrical circuits with Leviton Smart Circuit Breakers and the intuitive My Leviton app on a smartphone, tablet or desktop. View real time energy consumption and trends, including total energy cost per month. Get alerts when a circuit breaker trips, or even trip one remotely – and so much more.

    Gee, in my over 70 years I never really gave a thought about my breaker panel unless, on the rare occasion, something tripped. So now Leviton is giving the Millennials one more reason to be glued to their damn phones for something as useless as social media.

    Want to know how much you are using? Don't you get a friggin bill every month??? Going to be more accurate also.

    "Manufactured to a higher standard?" Where have I heard that "higher standard" lie before?

    Higher standard does not mean higher quality, and is usually indicative of greater potential for problems in the first place.

    Higher standard does not mean a plastic enclosure!

    Thats why the UK got rid of them, plastic can burn during a loose connection. Not every load center is in a basement behind fire stops.

    Its nothing new though. Utilities have been doing it since the 80s, and companies like Bender have been offering smart circuit monitoring:

    If this means firmware updates for AFCI breakers, its a step forward at least in that regard.

    The phones started it. And being as smart as they are, will soon be in control of the smart breakers.....and perhaps the installer as well.

    They're already smarter than the Millennials that use them.
