Groupe Renault and Otodo develop new service linking cars and homes

Groupe Renault has announced a new service enabling automatic and secure interaction and communication between cars and connected objects in homes.

The service, developed in conjunction with Otodo, a French company pioneering in smart-home connectivity, will be available in all Renault cars that have EASY LINK, including the New ZOE, All-New Clio and All-New Captur.

The new connectivity service allows users to control various objects in their home directly from their vehicle’s dashboard, as well as send instructions from their home, using a smartphone or connected speaker, to their connected Renault vehicle.

Users select the objects they want to include in the available scenarios, and the instructions associated with each object.

The ‘Leaving Home’ scenario puts their home to “sleep” (switching the thermostat to energy-saving mode, closing the shutters and turning off the lights, for example).

The ‘Arriving Home’ scenario wakes it up. Users then decide when they want the system to prompt them to activate the scenarios based on the distance between the vehicle and home.

Jean-François Labal, Marketing & Partnership Head for Connected Cars & Services at Groupe Renault, said: “Cars need to blend into our digital lives. With this service, we’re offering our customers a trailblazing experience and a completely secure system to connect their home’s connected objects to their vehicle. The interface to set it up is very intuitive and it comes with two advantages: it’s automatic so it makes life simpler and it saves energy by switching lights and heating on and off as needed.”

Eric Denoyer, CEO at Otodo, said: “Our platform has enabled Groupe Renault to create a simple and universal link between smart cars and smart homes, that works across brands and technologies.
