The 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas will be an opportunity for Legrand Group to show off its range of solutions for the connected Smart Home based on the Internet of Things (IoT).

Visitors to the CES will be able to see and try numerous smart commands in the aesthetics of Legrand's most widely distributed global lines. Smart devices are used to manage lighting, curtains and scenario automation, which can be activated via the traditional local mode, such as by pushing a button or turning a knob, or remotely via smartphones and tablets, using simple apps.The public will find Legrand smart objects at its stand in the "Smart Home" area dedicated to the ZigBee® Alliance, in the pavilion dedicated to IoT/Home Automation, the worldwide association of companies that develop and produce wireless solutions for the Smart Home.

The CES is an international showcase where you can discover both Legrand's new connected solutions and Legrand's new smart devices, which, adopting the new ZigBee® 3.0 unified standards, can talk to similar objects in the home, such as lamps and appliances from other manufacturers, making full interoperability a reality.

Legrand is member of the AllSeen Alliance, the open-source consortium aimed at promoting the global adoption of products, systems and services for the Internet of EveryThings based on a common technology. Legrand's smart objects that use this language will be on display at the Qualcomm stand.

« The Internet of Things is an increasingly important theme these days. It is important for us to be a part of this world as it represents one of the great lines of development of the smart house », said Fabrizio Fabrizi, Director of Innovation and Systems of the Legrand Group. « We have decided to present our solutions at the CES, the world's most important event dedicated to consumer electronics, to reaffirm once again our role as a global reference point in residential solutions. »
