Irish wiring and lighting manufacturer Click Litehouse is getting serious in the smart home market with a brand-new range of products available from buying group IEBG under the ClickSmart+ brand that takes its smart home solutions to a whole new level.
The inclusion of this premium brand, part of the Scolmore Group, is another example of IEBG’s influential buying power. Virtually every major supplier now trades with IEBG, allowing its 16 independent electrical wholesaler members (with 28 branches across Ireland) to offer a wide range of quality brands off the shelf to their customers at competitive prices.
The ClickSmart range available from IEBG is designed to simplify and streamline connected home products such as lighting controls, smart sockets, security cameras and sensors. The range uses Zigbee technology, one of the most widely adopted smart home technologies. Zigbee certified devices require the ClickSmart+ Hub and communicate with each other using a mesh network that creates multiple pathways for the connection of multiple smart home devices without compromising signal and communication range.
A key benefit of Zigbee and the new ClickSmart+ range is that there is no requirement for a signal repeater, as all the devices have repeaters built in. Renowned for its innovative and intuitive solutions in lighting and wiring accessories, Scolmore’s ClickSmart+ range will assist installers looking to boost their business with an enhanced smart home offering that will deliver a complete connected home experience to householders.
ClickSmart+ has at its core, accessibility and simplicity for the installer and end user and is designed to bring convenience, comfort, security, energy saving and ultimately more control in the home. Installation is simple and flexible, with no additional cables or wall cutting required, making it ideal for existing or newly constructed buildings.
The bespoke ClickSmart+ App gives householders ultimate control of the smart devices, which can also be operated through voice control in conjunction with a smart speaker. The ClickSmart+ connected home products range currently comprises the Smart Gateway Hub – the control centre of all devices – 1 and 2-gang smart sockets, a plug-in smart socket, switching and dimming receivers, camera, PIR sensor, window, and door sensor, plus a temperature and humidity sensor.
A series of ‘How To’ videos is also currently being developed for release on YouTube and will be promoted across Scolmore’s social media channels.
