The booming smart home market exceeded the €1bn mark in 2018 (source: GFK Institute). Radio-operated solutions are now much easier and less costly to implement than traditional home automation. Another key advantage is that they can be installed in stages, starting with a particular use, and progressively adding equipment.
Energeasy Connect is a home controller developed by Rexel in order to monitor equipment locally or remotely. Launched in 2015 as a heating monitoring solution, Energeasy Connect has since integrated the management of openings, then nearly all the connected objects in a building: video cameras, smart device, voice-controlled speakers, etc. Interoperable, it works with most of the market's existing protocols, which are still very different from one brand to another.
