Legrand Australia’s insights on the evolution of smart homes

In the rapidly evolving landscape of smart home products, Legrand Australia takes pride in being at the forefront of innovation and providing solutions that improve lives. As we move into 2024, the demand for smart products among Australian customers continues to rise, as does the appetite for cutting-edge technologies.

Smart products have seen a surge in popularity amongst Australian consumers in recent times, with a steady increase in appetite over the past year. Legrand Australia says this increase in uptake stems from the tangible benefits that smart products offer, including enhanced convenience both remotely and while at home, added security measures, and efficiency for daily living.

Environmentally and economically smarter

Smarter technology is very likely to result in improved energy and cost efficiencies. Legrand’s range of smart products are designed with a focus on optimising resource consumption. From intelligent lighting systems with notifications and scheduling for switches and dimmers, to consumption graphs showcasing totals by device, Legrand products empower users to monitor and manage their homes more sustainably. 

In turn, this may result in reduced utility bills and may contribute to a more environmentally conscious lifestyle. Customers who might still be hesitant to make the change should consider the long-term benefits of the technologies, and their potential to positively impact the planet.

“One such product range that customers can utilise for energy consumption is Excel Life Smart – a series of switches and power points offering world-class smart home technology for automation and control via switch, mobile device or voice-activated digital assistants,” a Legrand Australia spokesperson said.

“With this, consumers can set up schedules tailored to their personal lifestyle needs – meaning they can turn appliances and lights on or off remotely, set timers for holidays, and monitor and save energy more easily.”

Legrand’s intelligent lighting systems, smart switches, and dimmers continue to be popular across Australia as favourite smart home solutions. These products stand out for their seamless integration into daily life, user-friendly interfaces, and the ability to adapt to individual preferences. The popularity of these items underscores the increasing demand for solutions that enhance comfort, efficiency and above all, improve lives.

A smarter future

As technology continues to advance, certain smart products are becoming more widely integrated into the modern home. Automated lighting, smart thermostats and security systems are just some of the products being utilised by homeowners who seek a more connected and secure living environment.

While smartphones are everywhere, some other smart devices have taken longer to achieve widespread acceptance. Customer apprehensions often stem from concerns about security, or the complexity of some smart home devices. To help overcome this, education and awareness is crucial. 

One of Legrand’s key pillars is focused on privacy, and providing resources that help customers combat security concerns, as well as practical benefits and ease of integrating smart devices into their homes.

“Legrand Australia is proud to share that we continue to invest in research and development to bring cutting-edge solutions to our customers. This investment is particularly significant and telling of Legrand’s commitment to innovation which has positioned us as a leader in the smart home industry,” a Legrand Australia spokesperson said.

“Additionally, Legrand is pleased to share significant product milestones and developments, including the expansion of our smart product portfolio into ceiling fans and controllers, and wireless switches for multi-points of control in the home.”

“We continually roll out new and exciting products in the smart home product range and we are constantly working towards our next big experience. We invite AHJ readers to explore these offerings and enhance their smart living experience. Stay tuned for further details.”

Legrand Australia remains dedicated to shaping the future of smart living, providing consumers with products that not only make homes smarter and improve their lives but also contribute to sustainability in the home. The journey towards a fully connected and efficient home is an exciting one and Legrand is proud to be at the forefront of this transformative wave.
