The connected home: Legrand and Somfy connected ranges are now compatible
Legrand, the global specialist in products and systems for electrical and digital building infrastructures, and Somfy, the world leader in automatic control of openings and closures in homes and buildings, have partnered to ensure compatibility of their complementary solutions for the connected home.
On the strength of a level of reliability and durability recognized across the global market, their shared ambition is to ensure compatibility between their respective offerings, so as to provide a new user experience in the connected home for both their professional customers and end users.
Keen to develop the interoperability of their ranges, Legrand (with its Eliot program) and Somfy (via the ‘So Open with Somfy’ program) both aim to ensure that choosing connected solutions is made genuinely simple for their customers.
Today, Legrand and Somfy are announcing compatibility on the French market between Céliane™ with Netatmo (1) and Somfy roller shutters, via their respective gateways, i.e. the Céliane™ with Netatmo control solution for Legrand and TaHoma (2) / Connexoon* for Somfy. This new development will become available in June 2018, first in France, then elsewhere in Europe according to the successive launches of Legrand connected wiring devices throughout 2018.
The end customer will be able, for example, to control Céliane™ with Netatmo products directly via TaHoma and create scenarios including both Somfy and Legrand products.
It will also be possible to control Somfy radio roller shutters directly through the Legrand Home + Control application and to combine them with Céliane™ with Netatmo scenario controls.
This partnership which is due for deployment in Europe, will be illustrated on both Legrand and Somfy’s stands at the CES 2018 in Las Vegas.
