Global leader announces latest advancement in the future of the connected home
WEST HARTFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Legrand, a global specialist in electrical and network infrastructure solutions, today introduces the latest in smart lighting from the radiant® Collection. Demonstrating Legrand’s continued commitment to improving the ways in which consumers control light and power throughout the home, Smart Lighting from the radiant collection offers switches and outlets that combine clean design with advanced functionality. In partnership with Samsung, Legrand’s Smart Lighting leverages Samsung’s ARTIK™ cloud services to allow simple connection with existing smart home solutions.
These smart switches, dimmers and outlets can be controlled remotely via the Legrand Smart Lights app or within the home through voice-enabled assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Home. Comfort is at the forefront, homeowners can know their home is secure even when they’re away or can activate dim lights to safely navigate the house at night. The app also allows homeowners to control lamps, small appliances and whole-home lighting to conveniently schedule lights or appliances to go on and off automatically, group lights, and create scenes to match a routine — controlling it all from any smart device anywhere.
Smart Lighting from the radiant Collection delivers ready-to-use connectivity. The first ever lighting devices to be certified from the industry standard for connected devices, the Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF), Smart Lighting is designed to seamlessly work with other OCF-certified IoT devices regardless of brand or operating system. This approach to out-of-the-box connectivity is in line with Legrand’s commitment to develop products that are open, interoperable and secure.
In partnership with Samsung, Legrand’s Smart Lighting leverages Samsung’s ARTIKTM cloud services to allow connections with other popular smart home products like Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Nest, Ring, and Fitbit to allow consumers to schedule and trigger lights when for instance the Ring doorbell is pressed.
“Smart Lighting represents a move to simplify daily life for all of us and more importantly, puts comfort and safety at the forefront,” said Gerald Connolly, Vice President and General Manager, Pass and Seymour, for Legrand. “Voice control has quickly become the preferred method of control for homeowners. With the capability of connecting smart devices from other manufacturers, homeowners simply speak commands and enable activation of doors, thermostats and lighting for an entire smart home experience.”
Designed to meet consumer demand for easy to implement smart solutions, Legrand devices are easy to install in place of existing switches and outlets, and setup is simple from the Legrand Smart Lights app. Each device connects via the home’s existing Wi-Fi network for fast, easy setup in one or multiple rooms. Dimmers offer Tru-Universal dimming technology that is compatible with any dimmable light bulbs. Plug-in units are also available, which allow homeowners to enjoy Smart Lighting without replacing existing switches. These devices not only control lights but convert other plugged-in products to smart as well – indoors and outdoors. The new Smart lighting from the radiant Collection expands upon Legrand’s family of lighting control solutions to support all types of projects from DIY to professional installation.
