Available from Legrand’s adorne® and radiant® collections of designer switches and outlets, the solutions also include a versatile selection of smart switches, dimmers and outlets to fit any home’s unique needs and style.
By leveraging the Netatmo technology, Legrand provides advanced options for managing the lights and power of an entire home, from anywhere, through the intuitive Home + Control app.“The acquisition of Netatmo in 2018 has afforded Legrand the ability to accelerate development of cutting-edge products and naturally extend our selection of designer switches and outlets,” said Angela Coffman, VP of Marketing and General Manager of Collections at Legrand. “The adorne and radiant collections are known for delivering exceptional style and innovative functionality, and by incorporating Netatmo we can elevate spaces with even smarter options for the home, providing unrivaled levels of reliability and flexibility along with advanced design.”
Optimized for whole home use, all adorne and radiant with Netatmo solutions start with a SmartGateway to create a robust, dedicated network that can support advanced control of lights and power in any home environment. The Zigbee-based mesh network strengthens with every switch or outlet added, making the solutions ideal for larger homes and homes where Wi-Fi signals struggle. The Gateway is available in two flexible options. It can be installed in a standard electrical box, or the surface-mount version can be attached to an existing switch or outlet, no new wiring required, to lay flush on top of the wall. Any combination of Netatmo-based smart devices can then replace existing switches, dimmers and outlets, and in new construction, they wire identically to standard devices. Setup is simple through the Legrand Home+Control app, letting users easily add or delete devices, personalize settings, and manage energy usage.
Additionally, built-in compatibility with all three leading voice assistants (Amazon Alexa, GoogleHome and Apple HomeKit), as well as an open API, make it easy to connect these solutions to a home’s existing smart products or automation system.
