Schneider Electric, Danfoss and Somfy to create Connectivity Ecosystem

This is meant for the residential, mid-size building and hotel markets

Schneider Electric, Danfoss and Somfy are partnering to create a Connectivity Ecosystem that aims to accelerate the adoption of connectivity in residential, mid-size building and hotel markets.

Committed to openness and interoperability, the three companies combine 300 years of innovation and expertise with the largest global network of trusted installers in the industry.  

The partnership brings connectivity for smart homes and smart buildings to maturity by delivering efficient solutions that are easy to integrate and that work simply together. The connectivity solutions are supported by qualified installers, making them simple and easy for customers to deploy.

The global market for connectivity is growing fast, with an estimated 8.4 billion connected devices in 2020. In 2016, fewer than 17 percent of US homes had any kind of smart home system, and less than 4 percent in Europe. Most of these are single-application devices.

The challenge is that connectivity is still widely perceived as lacking in simplicity, reliability, interoperability and after-sales support. Installation quality is also an issue, particularly when the installation process is left in the hands of the end users or unqualified installers.  

Schneider Electric, Danfoss, and Somfy believe it is time for major industrial players to come together to accelerate on connectivity and deliver efficient solutions that work simply together. Through the partnership, the three global leaders bring their own field of expertise in lighting, heating and shutter control that are supported by the expertise and proximity of professional network of installers.
