Legrand has launched MyHOME_Up – the latest generation of its home automation system, complete with a dedicated app.
Legrand has unveiled MyHOME_Up – the latest generation of its home automation system – which now benefits from app connectivity. The company hopes the move will make it easier for housebuilders to integrate smart home technology into new-build developments.
Using the company’s connected devices programme, Eliot, MyHOME_Up has been designed to integrate all essential services for a modern home – such as lighting, temperature control, shading, audio and door entry – into one system.
Richard Hopkins, Lead Marketing Manager, Wiring Devices for Legrand UK & Ireland, commented: “The MyHOME_Up concept is intended to facilitate easy uptake and integration of home automation systems into new build developments, at a competitive price. The beauty of the system, particularly for developers, is the level of end-user flexibility it offers. Using our connected devices programme, Eliot, the MyHOME_Up system can deliver full home automation for those who desire it. Crucially, the function of the devices and scenes can still be achieved via wall mounted controllers, if desired.”
Legrand says that what sets the system apart from its predecessor is the new MyHOMEServer1 server, which enables contractors to easily commission the system using the new MyHOME_Up mobile app.
The app, which is free to download and available on Android and iOS, can also be used by the homeowner to remotely control and manage all home automation functions. It will also allow homeowners to create and customise smart actions based on their lifestyle, such as synchronised lighting, climate and audio controls for each individual room during the morning or evening, or when entertaining guests.
