Legrand today launched ELIOT, an IoT program that advances connectivity and intelligence in the Built Environment and enhances value in the use of connected products. Legrand is joined by partners Amazon Alexa, Samsung and Cisco in launching ELIOT, which offers a purpose-built cloud, gateways for installed legacy offerings, an array of natively-connected new products, and innovative solutions comprising connected, intelligent technologies and services.
Engineered specifically for the Built Environment with end users from the consumer domain and partners from the professional community in mind, Legrand’s ELIOT program advances both the technology and the IoT experience.
According to John Selldorff, chief executive officer of Legrand North and Central America, Legrand’s deep expertise in manufacturing products that are integrated with building infrastructures, coupled with its understanding of how electrical technologies are purchased, deployed and used, improves the experience with the Built Environment.
