Legrand to Preview Solar Powered Umbrella for USB Charging


LAS VEGAS—Legrand, a global specialist in electrical and network infrastucture solutions, will showcase its portfolio of hospitality-focused products at HD Expo 2018, in Las Vegas from May 2 to 4, demonstrating its commitment to assisting hospitality properties in their quest to continually differentiate via technology and aesthetics.

Recognizing the increasing need for power in non-traditional spaces, namely the outdoors, Legrand will showcase its elegant outdoor power solutions that offer a seamless charging experience (without interrupting carefully designed landscapes or patios) as guests travel from inside to outside with their favorite devices, including their Outdoor Charging Stations and a preview of the new LumiPower Solar Powered Umbrella with USB charging.

“As guests continue to increasingly demand seamless, intuitive ways to access power during their stays it is imperative that designers have access to products that stylishly and efficiently accommodate these expectations,” said Nancy Snyder, Senior Manager of Hospitality Sales, Legrand. “Legrand is leading the charge in offering versatile products that enhance the guest experience and HD Expo is a key opportunity for Legrand to demonstrate these to the design community.”

Addressing the growing need for constant connectivty and power across a property, Legrand will exhibit its expanded suite of stylish, functional Furniture Power products. The diverse Furniture Power Centers from Legrand’s designer collections blend power access and optional lighting controls seamlessly in furniture and overall designs. eeKey products on display include:

  • The newly introduced radiant® Furniture Power Centers ­­bring together refined style and modern convenience, offering both USB and traditional power Basic Power Units offer charging via tamper-resistant outlets and USB ports, while Switching Power Units integrate outlets and USB port charging alongside a light switch for on/off control of a connected light fixture.
  • Similarly, the newly updated adorne Furniture Power Center now allows for integrated switching and dimming—offering added convenience for hotel room environments.

Legrand will also exhibit its complete lineup of solutions from its adorne and radiant collections—comprised of light switches and dimmers, nightlights, outlets (including USB outlets), and corresponding wall plates—which empower hospitality decision-makers to elevate simple guest experiences, such as charging mobile devices or controlling lighting sources, in unexpected ways.

Underscoring its role as a leader in IoT—most notably through its Eliot (Electricity + IoT) program in North America—Legrand’s presence at HD Expo will also focus on educating the design community on the evolving role of IoT in the hospitality market and the myriad ways it can enhance the guest experience. Legrand’s Hospitality team will be available to discuss the company’s partnerships with hoteliers and technology companies, address how intuitive, human-centric lighting design impacts the well-being of every guest and the overall design of a space; and how designers can integrate robust technology solutions without sacrificing aesthetics important to the look and feel of the property.
