With this new connectivity solution from Groupe Renault, users can now control their home’s connected objects 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 to prepare or share an itinerary, for example. With this secure solution, drivers can simultaneously control various connected objects in their home from their car allowing them to automate several of their routine tasks.

The system is simple to set-up from the smartphone app:

- Users select the connected 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.

This connectivity system is an all-in-one solution. Users only need to OK one prompt on their vehicle’s touchscreen to activate a scenario – which sends all the relevant instructions to their home’s connected objects automatically and simultaneously.
