Legrand Brings ‘Purposeful Innovation’ to CES 2018 The Company will Launch its Newest Connected Device Offering, Smart Lighting Controls from the Radiant CollectionBy RS Staff Published: January 5, 2018 ⋅ Updated: April 15, 2019 At CES 2018, Legrand is demonstrating power, light, and data technologies that are not “simply smart” but carefully engineered for the “built environment” and with a high emphasis on design. “It’s not simply a question of having the most cutting-edge concept, in smart home and building technologies, but also channeling innovation to provide users with an experience that combines user-value, user-experience, and design,” said Manny Linhares, director of IoT strategy, Legrand North & Central America. “Our emphasis on purposeful innovation is yielding exciting new products, partnerships, and ideas at CES.” Legrand is launching its newest connected device offering, smart lighting controls from the radiant collection, comprised of devices designed and manufactured for how consumers live or aspire to live. The radiant collection of dimmers, outlets, and switches are design, the company says, to add a “touch of class” and “invigorating design” to any room and now includes smart light switches that enable consumers to stay connected to their spaces with lighting controls, outlets, and home automation that reflect their personal style. Designed for the built environment — addressing code compliance, complexity, reliability, and longevity needs of buildings — this new line provides consumers with assurance of quality, function, and performance. Legrand is showcasing partnerships with IoT and smart home leaders, including Samsung, Amazon, Google, Ivani, and Netatmo. The company has instituted a comprehensive developer program (works with legrand) with APIs that enable partners to quickly design Legrand interoperability into their smart home solutions. Legrand is also showing that smart home technology extends beyond the house or apartment, providing consumers with the comforts, convenience, and customization of home in Marriott hotels. Legrand, Samsung, and Marriott will show the hotel room of the future that gives hotel guests personalization options, including intuitive lighting and voice-activated room control thanks to end-to-end IoT services on the Samsung ARTIK platform and the SmartThings Cloud. Also on display will be Legrand’s wattstopper human centric lighting solutions (HCL), designed to deliver the highest quality tunable light to make spaces in any environment more visually comfortable. The solution on display is controlled by wattstopper digital lighting management (DLM), an intelligent, distributed control system that automatically maximizes lighting energy efficiency. Additionally, pinnacle architectural lighting, a brand of Legrand, will showcase their partnership with BIOS Lighting, a manufacturer and recognized innovator of human centric solutions for commercial and residential spaces. “Smart technology needs to be designed for life,” Linhares added. “We’re proud that the innovations and partnerships shown in the Legrand booth at CES reflect that philosophy and we look forward to the next wave of Smart Home innovation and increasing market adoption as consumers extract real value from the experience.” SubscribeFor more stories like this, and to keep up to date with all our market leading news, features and analysis, sign up to our newsletter here.
