The new software includes an update for the iOS app that enables control via the Apple Watch touchscreen, plus an update to the Android app.
MIDDLETOWN, Pa. (April 26, 2016) -- Unveiling its first application for the Apple® Watch, Legrand® today released new software for its whole house Lighting Control Hub that enables homeowners to control and schedule lighting changes using the high-tech timepiece in addition to the existing phone and tablet apps.
The new software, version 1.3 for the Legrand model LC7001 Whole House Lighting Control Hub, includes both firmware for the hub as well as an update for the iOS app that enables control via the Apple Watch touchscreen. In addition, an update to the Android app is now available, which includes a series of minor improvements.
“Convenience is the key benefit driving consumer demand for lighting control. Compatibility with Apple Watch makes it possible to check on or control your home’s lights right on your wrist,” said Fritz Werder, V.P. and general manger of Nuvo & On-Q product lines of Legrand. “For our customers who own an Apple Watch, this is a terrific feature upgrade at no added cost and makes their system more connected to their lifestyle.”
Current users of the Hub will be prompted to download the new software from the device – phone, tablet, etc - that they use to control the system.
The LC7001 Hub lets homeowners control home lighting manually or according to scheduled, pre-set lighting scenes. Scene pre-sets as well as manual changes are made using a smartphone, tablet or PC. More than 100 scene pre-sets are possible, including scenes covering multiple areas, or zones, within the home. The Hub is compatible with the full range of Legrand’s RF (radio frequency) light switches and devices, including the adorne, radiant, Decorator and Miro lines.
