The many novelties in the Eliot connected devices programme presented at the show will include: the electrical vehicle charging stations Green'Up, the connected circuit breaker "Salvavita", the UPS systems and the players for multiroom audio system NuVo (all devices can be managed locally or remotely via smartphone). Plus, the new features on the Classe 300 X connected door entry video internal unit and the Smarther thermostat, which can now talk with other smart products, as well as with Google and Amazon voice assistants.
Many examples of interoperability achieved through the new "Works with Legrand" programme.
Last, but not least, additional novelties in the residential, service and manufacturing sectors will include the updating of the BTnet structured cabling range, the new MyHome_Up 7" touchscreen/door entry video internal unit, the new smart hotel solutions, in partnership with Samsung, and the new UPS power modules.
BTicino will be exhibiting, as part of the Legrand Group's stand, at Light+Building 2018, the world's leading trade fair for lighting and building services technology, taking place in Frankfurt from March 18 to 23, 2018. Many will be the novelties on show, now available on the Italian market.
BTicino confirms its strategy in the IoT industry, built around its connected home devices programme "Eliot", offering new electrical vehicle recharging solutions, for all types of residential, public sector and service industry applications. As well as being safe and resistant, the new Green'Up charging stations feature numerous innovative functions, including the possibility of controlling and managing vehicle recharging remotely, via smartphone, tablet or pc, through the dedicated EV Charge application.
Light+Building will also see the international debut of connected Salvavita® circuit breaker, allowing for prompt and easy reset via smartphone in case of untimely switch tripping due to lightening or network disturbance, remote receipt of information on system operation and remote controlling of the earth-leakage switch.
Also part of Eliot, Bticino presents the new features on the Smarther connected thermostat, now offering interaction with the most popular voice assistants and allowing to activate voice control with digital assistants such as Google Home and Amazon Alexa. Another novelty is the integration of the Classe 300X connected door entry video internal unit with the Yale smart door lock (ASSA ABLOY Group) and the Hanwha Wisenet cameras (Samsung Group). Interoperability with the door lock and the smart cameras will enable users to control the front door and ensure home video monitoring remotely via the Door Entry app or locally via the video internal unit.
The new integration functions have been developed as part of the Legrand Group's Works with Legrand international platform, designed to increase interoperability between its connected products and third-party solutions and services and open up its systems to compatibility with the leading global brands on the IoT market, such as Google, Apple, Samsung and Amazon. The open interoperable platform is a strategic component of the Eliot programme.
Also in the home solutions field, the MyHOME_Up range presents Hometouch, a new 7" touchscreen offering both home automation and door entry functions. Hometouch can be managed remotely via the dedicated Door Entry app.
NuVo, Legrand brand for digital sound management, distributed nationwide in Italy by BTicino, will present its new product offering for an exciting sound experience. Its high-fidelity multiroom audio system now also includes innovative modular DIN rail players, table players with built-in speakers, TV soundbars and new professional-quality built-in speakers.
At Light+Building, Legrand and BTicino will also be introducing, in partnership with Samsung, their new GRMS (Guest Room Management System) solutions for smart hotels, designed to enhance customer experience in hotel guest rooms. The room's main functions - light, rolling shutters and temperature - can now be managed from the BTicino controls or the TV remote.
Also for hotel guest rooms, new user controls are available that can be programmed to create customised interfaces, relying on a wide range of icons.
In Frankfurt, BTicino will also present its updated BTnet product offering for structured cabling, from its range of copper wiring products and cutting-edge quick-connect panel connectors for connections up to 40 GB/s (cat. 8) to its new patch panels, cables and patch cords, from its fibre optic cabling with new drawers, fibre optic cables and handheld fusion splicer to its Linkeo floor cabinets and wall distribution boards, server rack cabinets and PDUs.
