    Experience

Convinced of the importance of connected devices and their added value for users, Legrand is continuing to speed up its development in this area and to reinvent buildings by offering users the opportunity to experience something new. Backed by its new innovations and partnerships, Legrand is attending the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas for the 4th consecutive year.

Legrand at the forefront of the trends at CES 2018: artificial intelligence, IoT, voice recognition

Providing proof that the Group’s acceleration is entirely in line with the trends at CES, its Eliot program, which aims to speed up adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) within Legrand’s product range, has never been so dynamic. This year’s CES is therefore the perfect occasion for Legrand to:
- Demonstrate the need to develop an infrastructure tailored to the connected experience,
- Highlight the benefits of interoperability by previewing its new partnership program Works with Legrand*,
- Present its latest innovations, especially those equipping the first connected buildings in the world,
- Focus on the first systems using artificial intelligence and voice control in the world of connected buildings.


*Works with Legrand is the system that allows third parties to connect to Legrand’s products.

BUILDING INFRASTRUCTURES AND THE INTEROPERABILITY OF SOLUTIONS- THE BASIS FOR THE CONNECTED EXPERIENCE

Legrand and Microsoft Azure

At CES 2018, Legrand and Microsoft formalised the interoperability of their technologies to enable the development of smart buildings to be speeded up and to, thereby, enhance the user experience. Together, they will be developing new connected solutions, which will be based on Legrand’s product lines within the Eliot program, on the one hand, and the Microsoft Azure solution, on the other hand. The aim is to provide users with new experiences and to offer them new services via a cloud platform. This will favour the combination of Legrand and Microsoft solutions, as well as their scalability, which enables the benefits for clients to be multiplied.

ENHANCING THE USER EXPERIENCE THANKS TO ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

At CES 2018, where artificial intelligence is in a prime position, Legrand is sharing its vision of this major technological advance which opens up new perspectives and promises to revolutionize our ways of living and our day-to-day uses.

IVANI, SERVING THE USERSgamme-rx3

In the USA Legrand works with Ivani, a technological partner, on a project to anticipate behavior patterns. The idea is simple: by continually observing a consumer’s behavior, a switch will be able to anticipate their habits. Ivani provides sensing of presence rather than just movement. This solution has various applications particularly for the home, security facilities, hotels and commercial buildings.

CRAFT AI

The partnership with the startup Craft Ai, the winner at the Legrand/Samsung Artik hackathon organised at Viva Tech 2016, is another example of Legrand’s open approach. Craft Ai adds an artificial intelligence dimension to smart buildings. It makes it possible to imagine a self-learning building, which learns about users’ habits by gathering data from the various connected products in the building.
