As the market for home automation products continues to show strong growth, consumers and building owners are turning to more decorative finishes for the smart products on display in their homes and properties. In anticipation of growing demand in this area, Scolmore has added a raft of new decorative sockets to its Click Smart+ range.
The comprehensive range of Click Smart+ products launched last year was created to simplify and streamline connected home products – lighting controls, smart sockets, security cameras and sensors. Now the company has added smart products in some of the company’s most popular ranges. One- and two-gang smart sockets are available in the Definity screwless, Deco+ premium decorative and Deco decorative wiring accessories ranges.
A new Click Smart+ Fused Connection Unit has also been added to the Mode antiviral and antibacterial smart wiring accessories range, providing users with the ability to control appliances throughout the home – ovens, hobs, dishwashers, heaters etc. They can be turned on or off by voice control or smart device with the Click Smart+ app or with an automation.
The Click Smart+ range utilises Zigbee technology – one of the most widely adopted smart home communication protocols. Zigbee certified devices require the Click Smart+ Hub and communicate with each other using a mesh network which 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 Click Smart+ range is that there is no requirement for a signal repeater, as all the hard wired devices have repeaters built in.
Installation is simple and flexible, with no additional cables or wall cutting required, making it ideal for existing or newly constructed buildings. The bespoke Click Smart+ app gives householders ultimate control of the smart devices, which can also be operated through voice control in conjunction with a smart speaker.
The full range comprises the Smart Gateway Hub – the control centre of all Zigbee connected devices – one-gang and two-gang smart sockets, a plug-in smart socket, fused connection unit, switching and dimming receivers, camera, PIR sensor, window, and door sensor, plus a temperature and humidity sensor.
