Fresh from the 2019 event, Overkiz is back with highlights from our time at Le Mondial du Bâtiment, celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. All the ingredients were there to make this event an excellent debut, including innovative products, technological performance, and persuasive demonstrations.
Although digital technology and the energy transition have largely found their place within Batimat, Interclima, and Idéobain, emerging as this year’s key trends, connected solutions had a more lukewarm showing. Overkiz, the SBA (Smart Building Alliance), and a few other manufacturers were all there, stepping up as standard bearers for this booming market. Integrators, electricians, heating specialists, architects, equipment manufacturers, and developers—whether new or experienced in the Internet of Things—have all shown real interest in interoperable connected solutions that allow them to improve their efficiency and simplify installations and operations for individual and collective residential projects involving new construction or renovation.
The plethora of brands and connected products at our booth (Legrand switches; Somfy roller shutters, gate, and smart lock; Amazon Alexa voice assistant; Urmet video intercom; Sonos sound speakers; and much more) affirmed the powerful interoperability and openness of our IoT platform.
Our demonstration, which focused on controlling a home’s connected devices from a Renault Zoe electric car, generated a lot of buzz. Beyond the “wow!” effect it created, our innovative technological demonstration showed the extent of our know-how and the bridges that now exist between smart homes and smart cars, through real-world daily life scenarios that left a big impact. What better to make an impression and boost our brand among a large audience of visitors!
