: its first smart electrical panel for the residential sector. Legrand is also unveiling new “with Netatmo” connected solutions such as the Smarther thermostat and the connected wiring devices adorne and radiant. All of them can be piloted via Legrand’s app, Home + Control, a genuine dashboard for managing the connected home, which is being continuously enhanced with new products including Netatmo’s solutions as well as partner offerings. The app also features a schedule system with strong user value.
“Following the success of CES2019, which culminated in a CES Innovation Award for a control device incorporating Amazon’s voice assistant as a native feature, this year’s CES in Las Vegas provides an opportunity to continue consolidating our innovations. Our approach is focused more than ever on Users, letting them control their connected lives with ease. Legrand places people at the core of all its developments so they can act on their environment with the Home + Control app, continually enriched with new features,” stated Benoît Coquart, CEO of Legrand.
Legrand announces its first smart electrical panel for the residential sector Drivia with Netatmo at CES2020 Unveiled
The recipient of two Innovation Awards in the Sustainability, Eco-Design & Smart Energy and Tech for a Better World categories, the Group’s smart electrical panel is the result of teamwork between the engineers of Legrand and Netatmo (startup acquired by Legrand in late 2018) aimed at connecting easily the heart of the home power infrastructure.
Drivia with Netatmo is made up of six smart modules: a contactor, a latching relay, a energy meter or eco-meter, a load controller and a gateway module. It enables users to easily connect their electrical installation. The modules composing this offer can be installed directly in the electrical panel and add innovative features to drive down energy consumption and manage the home’s most power-hungry equipment. Drivia with Netatmo, Legrand’s first smart electrical panel, allows users to better monitor and manage their energy consumption with features like scenarios or schedule planning. Available as of Q1 2020, this solution will be compatible with Home + Control, the app that makes it possible to pilot Legrand’s connected home.
New connected solutions dedicated to residential buildings
The solutions presented by Legrand at CES2020 include new products that will be highlighted at the booth: the Smarther with Netatmo connected thermostat, which will be available in Europe as of April 2020, and two new “with Netatmo” wiring device ranges dedicated to the North American market as of late 2020, adorne with Netatmo and radiant with Netatmo. Legrand is thus continuing to implement its international strategy and work towards massification of connected home solutions.
Home + Control, a Legrand app dedicated to connected home piloting
Launched in 2018, Home + Control is a free, simple, intuitive app co-developed by Legrand and Netatmo.
It provides users with real-time information on the state of their installation while letting them remotely monitor energy consumption, as well as interact with their connected home. With Home + Control, users truly take full control over their home by remotely controlling lighting, shutters, heating systems, and electrical equipment from their smartphone, by creating scenarios for instance. Home + Control is available free of charge on the App Store and Google Play.
Home + Control is enriched with new features to offer more interoperable experiences
- New compatibilities with Netatmo products (heating management solutions for example), and Legrand innovations, as well as partner products. Partner products include Bubendorff shutters, Aldes air conditioning units, Muller Group radiators, Somfy equipment and more. The app is compatible with all leading voice assistants such as Apple’s Siri, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
- New features: schedule. This feature is used to anticipate and set automation operations in the home, via Home + Control, to be triggered at a pre-determined time according to the user lifestyle for ever more precise piloting of electrical equipment.
