The connectivity ecosystem

  • Overview

The challenge: common perceptions

Despite traction of connected devices from early technology adopters, the level of penetration of connectivity in households and small buildings is still very low. 

Connectivity is still perceived to be lacking in simplicity, reliability, and efficiency. The belief is that interoperability is too complex and lacks post-sales and installation support.

The solution: a unique partnership

At Danfoss, Schneider Electric and Somfy we believe it is time for major industrial players to partner together and bring connectivity to its maturity stage, to deliver efficient solutions that work simply together and that improve value for end users. 
This is why we have joined forces to create the connectivity ecosystem that will boost the adoption of connectivity technologies in the residential and mid-size markets, and thus enhance the living and working experience for people, everywhere.

More than 300 years of industry expertise

Combining more than 300 years of industry expertise, we aim to redefine the future of connectivity, advance active energy efficiency, security and comfort.

A large, global network of trained installers with local services and support

We have developed a network of over 300,000 installers from around the globe with whom we have mutual trust and understanding. Our channel partners – Schneider Electric EcoXperts, Somfy Experts, and Danfoss – offer the expertise required to continue to build and develop connectivity maturity.
