Alfred Ng for CNet: Legrand sees a future where your smart home learns based on your habits and behaviors -- even knowing when to turn on the lights for your 3 a.m. bathroom run.
The French-based electrical equipment company hopes to make smart homes autonomous, where shades open and the coffee maker gets started before you wake up.
