Legrand announced that its radiant RF (radio frequency) Lighting Control and adorn 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 light,” or “OK Google, dim the living room to 50 percent.” They no longer need to reach for their phone, tablet or light switch.
The development of the lighting systems’ compatibility with the Google Assistant follows Legrand’s recent launch of its Eliot (Electricity + IoT) program in North America.
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 directions.
The radiant RF Lighting Control and adorne Wi-Fi Ready Lighting systems are comprised of wall-mounted dimmers and switches, scene controllers and plug-in modules for dimmable lamps and small appliances. The adorne system also has Wi-Fi-ready components. The dimmers for each system, which employ Legrand’s 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.
