Lighting and switching manufacturer Legrand has released Arteor with Netatmo, a range of smart switches and sockets allowing control of the home utilising an IOS or android smart device or voice commands.
The switches, which work with digital assistants such as Google Home, Apple’s Siri and Amazon Alexa, use normal household power and wall mounting boxes.
Using a simple app the home owner can check the status or turn on or off electrical devices remotely, receive push notifications, set up multi scenarios and receive energy consumption reports.
The range was designed by Legrand engineers in Australia and France, and individual components are manufactured locally or sourced from Italy.
It is one of the first fruits of the global Legrand group’s takeover of home automation specialist, Netatmo.
Arteor with Netatmo requires the installation of a starter kit which includes a ‘gateway’ to establish the home network, which operates independently of home wi-fi signals.
The kit also includes a smart light switch, smart PowerPoint and a Wireless Master Switch.
Up to 100 individual switches and sockets an be connected at the one time.
