Legrand Adorne- Your Guide to Adorne Systems

Legrand Adorne Switches and Dimmers

The Legrand Adorne collection offers 7 type of wall switches. Each switch is compatible with the locator status LED to help find them in the dark. All switches are available in white or magnesium. Wireless Master switches can be combined with other wireless devices to control entire rooms with one switch. For example, you could turn off the light when you leave a room, which would also turn off other wireless Legrand adorne products such as a wireless outlet.

  • The Paddle switches and dimmers have a wide surface that functions with a simple up or down motion. Paddle switches are also available in smaller sizes to fit multiple switches into one gang plates.
  • Whisper devices are the closest to traditional light switches except they are designed to have a quiet, fluid motion.
  • The sofTap switches require just a tap to turn your light on or off. The dimming function utilizes a small paddle that also only require a slight tap.Legrand adorne diagram

All Legrand adorne outlets are designed with tamper-resistant technology including a patented shutter system, which prevents kids from jamming small objects into the outlet. Outlets are available in 2 or 3 modules. Ground fault circuit interrupter(GFCI) outlets should be used in kitchens, bathrooms and outdoor locations.

Legrand Adorne also offers energy saving on/off outlets that feature a button to turn the whole outlet on or off. USB outlets are also available for all your modern devices.

Pop-Out outlets are the most innovative outlets Legrand Adorne has available. When not in use you can push them into the wall so they disappear. There are some things to note on the Pop-Out outlets, however. First, Pop-Out outlets are not compatible with the normal frames the wall Legrand Pop Outplates come with. These outlets will come with special frames. You will still be able to use your wall plates on the Pop-Out compatible frames. The Pop-Out devices come in 1 and 2 gang models. That means if you are planning a two gang wall plate with a switch and an outlet, you will have to buy the 2 gang model of Pop-Out outlet to make sure you get the correct frame.

Also, please note that Pop-Out outlets require extra deep wallboxes. Metal boxes, either for single or multi circuit must be at least 3 ½ inches deep. Multi-circuit plastic boxes must be at least 3 ½ inches deep. Single circuit plastic boxes must be at least 3 inches deep.

Wireless Systems

Define up to four unique presets and control your entire home lighting environment with the touch of Legrand adorne’s handy wireless remote. Or, install Legrand’s free app, and your smartphone becomes the remote, allowing you to access your preset even while away. To enable smartphone control you must have a Whole-House Mobile Interface Controller.
