Legrand On-Q Lighting Control Systems Now Work with The Google Assistant for Seamless Voice Operation
Owners of Company’s radiant® RF Lighting Control System and adorne® Wi-Fi Ready Lighting System Can Power and Dim Lighting Without Reaching for Smartphone or Switch
MIDDLETOWN, PA., May 2, 2017 – Legrand, the global specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructures, announced that its radiant® RF (radio frequency) Lighting Control and adorne® Wi-Fi Ready Lighting systems now work with the Google Assistant for seamless voice control.
Owners of these systems can now power and dim lights through devices enabled by the Google Assistant, such as Google Home, simply by saying phrases like, “Ok Google, turn on the porch,” or “Ok Google, dim the living room to 50%.” They no longer need to reach for their phone, tablet or light switch.
“Working with the Google Assistant, our radiant RF Lighting Control and adorne Wi-Fi Ready Lighting systems remain in step with the industry’s leading edge technologies for integrators and their tech-savvy customers,” said Fritz Werder, VP and general manager of Legrand’s On-Q and Nuvo lines. “Our goal is to offer users the simplicity of connecting to our products any way they want to. If homeowners find it convenient to use the Google Assistant, then we want them to have that option for controlling their lighting, too.”
The development of the lighting systems’ compatibility with the Google Assistant comes on the heels of Legrand’s recent launch of its Eliot (Electricity + IoT) program in North America. Eliot is a global Legrand IoT program that brings together Legrand's worldwide expertise to advance connectivity and intelligence in the built environment, mobilize Legrand’s capabilities around the world, speed development of Legrand connected devices and amplify communications wherever the Internet of Things can enhance value for all users.
The integration of the Google Assistant into the lighting systems is powered by Samsung ARTIK™ Cloud, and requires a Legrand LC7001 Whole House Lighting Controller and an integrated Samsung ARTIK™ Cloud account. To connect with the Google Assistant, users simply need to tap on ARTIK Cloud from the “Home control” menu in the Google Home app and follow the step-by-step directions.
The radiant RF Lighting Control and adorne Wi-Fi Ready Lighting systems are comprised of an array of wall-mounted dimmers and switches, scene controllers and convenient plug-in modules for dimmable lamps and small appliances. The adorne system also features Wi-Fi-ready components. The dimmers for each system, which employ Legrand’s patented Tru-Universal technology, are unique in that they can be used with all lighting and load types, including LEDs, incandescent, halogen and others.
The LC7001 Whole House Lighting Controller enables users to turn lights off and on, immediately or on a schedule, from their smartphone, tablet or Apple Watch, in addition to Google Home. The easy to use app offers simple convenience that homeowners will appreciate, including individual light naming and the ability to schedule individual lights or scenes by time of day.
