PRESS RELEASE

2017 International CES Las Vegas. NV & Fountain Valley, CA – January 4 - Netatmo, the revolutionary smart home company, developing ground-breaking, intuitive and beautifully-designed connected consumer electronics, keeps growing and presents, through its « with Netatmo » program, new connected solutions integrated into residential home building products. The company announces at CES 2017 two solutions developed in partnership with building product industry leaders, Legrand and VELUX.

The smart home market is growing faster than ever before

The smart home market generated a 47 billion-dollar revenue worldwide in 2015, and should reach 121 billion dollars in 2022[1]. The global household penetration rate is predicted to reach 12.4% in 2022[2].

Connected home products that enable more security, energy savings and improved indoor comfort are the most highly sought after by consumers. 

The connected home has become a reality due to the development of broadband, the increased use of smartphones to control devices remotely, Artificial Intelligence offering new services and a better user experience, and greater interoperability that make devices interact and create a more personalised service.

The smart home is becoming tangible. Interoperability platforms such as Apple HomeKit and Amazon Alexa are contributing to the quickening pace of market growth. The next step is the integration of Artificial Intelligence within home infrastructure to offer useful new functions to users”, says Fred Potter, founder and president of Netatmo.

« With Netatmo », a partnership IoT program

Netatmo launches its « with Netatmo » program alongside building industry leaders, Legrand and VELUX, to develop innovative, connected solutions integrated into residential home building products for both new-build and renovation projects.

Through these collaborations, Netatmo brings its skills in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, product software integration, electronics and user experience to the industry-leading building products of Legrand and VELUX. 

Each companies’ engineering team work together to define the best features and address the best use-cases which could include voice control or autonomous home regulation thanks to Artificial Intelligence algorithms.

Our experience in developing consumer products for the home and our expertise in technologies such as Artificial Intelligence allow us to work with leading industrial partners such as Legrand and VELUX.”, Fred Potter says. “Our goal with these partnerships is to expand our product offerings that fit into the home infrastructure, such as openings (windows and doors) or electrical equipment. After launching consumer products, this second development area allows us to directly address the BtoB market. We are now answering the needs of each sector, both BtoB and BtoC, and strengthening our leading position in the smart home market”, he adds.

The first solutions of the program « with Netatmo »

Céliane with Netatmo and VELUX ACTIVE with Netatmo are the first two co-creations from the « with Netatmo » program.

These products, coming as an extension of already-commercialised product ranges of Legrand France and VELUX, enable users to optimise their comfort at home.

Each solution won 2 awards at the renowned « CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards 2017». Exactly like Netatmo products, “with Netatmo” products have been honoured for their innovation success.

  • Céliane with Netatmo

Netatmo and Legrand have designed Céliane with Netatmo for the French market, the first range of in-wall smart switches and power outlets that are affordable, easy to install, secure, interoperable and evolutive. Céliane with Netatmo solution allows you to control lighting, rolling shutters and home appliances with a master switch placed at the entrance of the home, with a smartphone or with your voice as it will be compatible with Apple HomeKit and Amazon Alexa. The removable wireless switches included in the range allow easy installation of a two-way switch without any additional electrical cables or making holes in the walls.

Céliane with Netatmo can be easily retro-fitted in an existing building, as well as in a new-build. This innovation brings the smart home within anyone’s reach.

Céliane with Netatmo won 2 awards at the « CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards 2017 »: « Smart Home » and « Home Appliances ».

  • VELUX ACTIVE with Netatmo

Netatmo and VELUX have designed VELUX ACTIVE with Netatmo, a smart solution enabling automatic, centralised and remote control of your roof windows, blinds and shutters. Through the automatic regulation of the indoor environment (sensors measure light, temperature, humidity and air quality), the user will experience optimum comfort and always-healthy indoor air, all the while saving energy. The solution will be available from autumn 2017, and will be compatible with all kinds of motorised roof windows, including any already installed in people’s homes.

VELUX ACTIVE with Netatmo won 2 awards at the « CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards 2017 »: « Smart Home» and « Eco-design and Sustainable technologies ».

Other partnerships are expected in 2017.
