Legrand Smart Lighting Controls Now Compatible with Amazon Alexa + Google Assistant


August 7, 2017

Building on its commitment to enhancing the delivery and control of power and light, Legrand introduces Voice Control compatibility with its radiant Collection RF (radio frequency) and adorne Collection Wi-Fi Lighting System. This new functionality enables Legrand customers to control their lights via Amazon’s Echo and Dot devices or Google Home.

Homeowners that have both Legrand smart lighting systems and Voice Control-enabled devices from Google or Amazon can now power and dim lights simply by saying phrases like, “Ok Google, turn on the porch lights,” or “Alexa, dim the living room to 50 percent” without needing to reach for a phone, tablet or light switch. Using the Google Home or Alexa apps, users can also easily control multiple lights with a single command, name individual lights, schedule individual lights to go on/off, and set scenes by time of day.

“With the growing popularity of the myriad Voice Control technologies on the market, we are so pleased to announce the integration of our Collections lighting controls with Amazon Alexa and Google Home,” said Fritz Werder, vice president 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 prefer. We want homeowners who enjoy the convenience of using Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant in their homes to have the same options for controlling their lights, too.”

Integration with Google or Amazon Alexa is powered by Samsung ARTIKTM Cloud. To enable voice control activation with either system, customers must have a Legrand LC7001 Whole House Lighting Controller (“Hub”) with an integrated Samsung ARTIKTM Cloud account, as well as radiant RF or adorne Wi-Fi ready switches or dimmers. The compatibility of the Collections’ lighting systems with Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant comes on the heels of the recent launch of Legrand’s Eliot (Electricity + IoT) program.
