A smart space in which to sample Yale’s showcase suite Smart Living range

Yale’s Smart Living range has grown from strength to strength and to reflect this, a recent revamp and extension in the Yale offices has taken place to create a Smart Living showcase suite. The new space has a brickwork exterior to give the illusion of a house with roofline, CCTV, Alarm completed with a Conexis® L1 Smart Door Lock on the front door.  Now even bigger and better, the updated Smart Living suite will provide Yale with a comfortable space to invite customers to both view the Smart Living range, and give the opportunity for guests to get hands-on with the products in a ‘real life’ scenario. This is ideal for demonstrating the features and benefits of products and for showcasing how they integrate with devices from Yale’s integration partners such as Amazon Echo, Nest and Philips Hue.

David Herbert, Business Development Director for Yale Smart Living, commented: “The new showroom reflects our commitment to the Yale Smart Living range and how its success has enabled the range to grow and develop partnership opportunities with key players in the technology industry. The smart security industry is thriving as we see new products and innovations enter the market place every day. This provides a huge opportunity for the trade to capitalise on the developing connected smart home sector and increase expertise and revenue opportunities From our consumer research, we found that 80% of consumers would want smart products professionally installed. However, we recognise that some trade professionals don’t feel completely comfortable using the new technology and need to assess how they are going to develop their business models. The Smart Living space is aiming to challenge perceived complexities by giving trade customers the opportunity to use the products for themselves and ask any questions.”

The demand for smart security products is increasing, as Yale recently took its revolutionary Conexis® L1 Smart Door Lock on TV. The advert has been a huge success reaching 55 million homeowners nationwide with an even bigger reach online and across social media. The Smart Living range is available as standalone products comprising of smart door locks, smart home alarms and smart CCTV kits, as well as a complete home security system, built around an intelligent smart security hub, which integrates with a wide range of modular accessories.
