“We design smart objects that are no longer just connected, but which provide new services to users, offering them a better smart home experience.”
Chief Technology Officer for the Eliot program
With Eliot, Legrand is developing a multitude of connected solutions that add value for users. The aim is both to connect existing products (by adding connected interfaces to the Group’s current products) and to develop new solutions that are connected natively, i.e. inherently designed to communicate, in both residential and commercial settings. Because, these days, uses no longer have any boundaries, and experiences between the residential and tertiary sector are coming together. Given this situation, Legrand enables millions of users to act on their environment wherever they are: home, hotel room, work, etc.
At Legrand, we make innovation a constant priority; an integral part of our business culture. Machine learning, voice and face recognition, Big Data: the integration of artificial intelligence into connected devices and associated services enables Legrand to further improve the functionality and capabilities for both the end consumer and the installer.

DLM (Digital Lighting Management) is a lighting management solution for commercial buildings in the United States. As a scalable system, which is very easy to install, it optimizes the energy performance of buildings and improves the well-being of occupants. With Lumenetix, Legrand also allows users to adjust the brightness of lighting and to adjust the white color “temperature” using controllers integrated into Pinnacle equipment (a Group brand) that can be controlled by DLM.
For connected objects to communicate and be sustainable, they not only need high-performance networks, but also a reliable, powerful and secure infrastructure that allows them to connect permanently within buildings. As a specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructures, Legrand is continually broadening its product range in this field, both in terms of structured cabling and deployment of the Legrand cloud.
