Orange starts marketing Connected Home service in France

Wednesday 17 April 2019 | 18:22 CET | News
Orange has begun selling a range of smart objects compatible with Connected Home (Maison Connectee), a new automation service that enables customers to control connected products remotely via the Livebox 4 router. First unveiled in December 2018, the service is available at no extra charge to customers subscribing to the Play, Jet, and Up fixed broadband packages (triple-play or Open multi-play bundles). As announced in February, the operator has decided to adopt Ultra-Low Energy (ULE) certified objects for the service, agreeing a partnership with wireless chipset provider DSP Group.
