A new innovation of Renault is the easy connection between the smartphone and the car in order to access online services directly on the car screen. Users can, for example, access to their online music subscription with the Bluetooth and to media information like France News or Euronews. Also, the drivers can already use vocal assistant (Android and Apple) to create destination instructions.

Cars become more and more intelligent and connected. The dashboard is able to display several information like autonomy, sum up of the journeys, tire pressure and so on. With the internet connection, it becomes possible to take an appointment with the car dealer or to program the car check.

Interaction between car and house with Legrand’s devices

One of the main innovations brought by the ecosystem “EASY CONNECT” is the connection between car and houses. Thanks to it, the driver can at any time manage the events sent by his home’s connected devices.

In collaboration with Legrand, some devices are manageable directly via the car screen and notifications can be displayed.

Connected plugs and switches can be piloted thanks to Céliane™ with Netatmo. The driver can switch off all the home lights with a simple click when he leaves the house, or being notified if lights stayed on while nobody is home.

With the Smarther, the intelligent device for the heating, the warmth can be easily managed. If the user wants his home to be heated at a precise temperature, he can program his Smarther while being on the way home.

The Classe 300 is a connected door entry. When someone rings at the door, a notification is sent directly on the car screen. By staying in his car, the driver can see who rang and start a conversation.
