Leroy Merlin, Auchan and Boulanger combine to weigh in the connected home

It is a form of declaration of love for the connected home that come to Leroy Merlin, Auchan and Boulanger. The three heavyweights of the French distribution have decided to make their common efforts to support the solution Enki created in April 2017 by Leroy Merlin. This allows you to manage it through an application (and soon a box) the different objects that are connected to the house (light bulb, outlet, opening, etc.) and making them work together with the scenarios defined by the user. The consumer may, for example, to schedule the closing of the shutters when the camera detects a presence suspicious in the garden.

The three partners undertake to ensure that the greatest number of objects are compatible with this solution, either through the products they can develop it themselves, or by encouraging their suppliers to make their products Enki-compatible. To date, the platform supports 137 products of 20 brands, including several big names in the sector (Legrand, Somfy, Netatmo, etc.). The goal by the end of 2018 is to increase this figure to more than 200 references from 35 brands, and quickly open the platform to other types of connected objects (tv, bracelets connected, etc)
