Care has been taken to improve the safety, convenience and comfort of smart homes, by providing connected solutions that are simple and intuitive.

This flexible home automation system offers designers, end users and electricians the freedom to create a connected, customised home by combining controls and features to manage scenarios, create centralised functions, and allow remote control of individual functions to suit personal requirements. Many useful functions can be implemented in the installation, using a few simple components.

This connected solution ensures easy and convenient control of functions in the home and remotely, using a smartphone or tablet. Users can control lighting, roller blinds and curtaining, security, temperature and home audio, from wherever they are in the world. Legrand has designed a system where users just need to give simple voice commands to Siri, Google Assistant or Alexa to manage lights and home appliances without lifting a finger.

The Netatmo range

Legrand’s Netatmo smart range encompasses connected security, energy, weather and air care products. Netatmo smart security systems include security cameras, alarms, window and door sensors, sirens (110 decibels) and smoke alarms, for total peace of mind. With Netatmo security products, users are alerted wherever they are via the Netatmo app.

The smart indoor camera offers advanced facial recognition technology, while the smart outdoor camera is able to distinguish between animals, vehicles and people.

Legrand will soon be launching a smart outdoor camera with a siren and a smart video doorbell.
