Scolmore in the smart home market

Having enjoyed success with its smart wiring accessories range, Scolmore Group has developed a new range of smart home products under the Click Smart+ brand.

The Click Smart+ range utilises Zigbee technology. This requires the Click Smart+ Hub to communicate with each other using a mesh network which creates multiple pathways for the connection of multiple smart home devices.

Scolmore’s Click Smart+ range is aimed to ‘assist installers looking to boost their business with an enhanced smart home offer that will deliver a complete connected home experience to householders.

Click Smart+ has at its core accessibility for the installer and ‘is designed to bring convenience, comfort, security, energy saving and ultimately more control in the home’, according to Scolmore.

The Click Smart+ App gives householders control of the smart devices, which can also be operated through voice control in conjunction with a smart speaker.

The Click Smart+ connected home products range comprises of the Smart Gateway Hub, 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.

The Smart Gateway Hub is the control centre and communicates with all other smart products within the home via the Zigbee Protocol. Even if the WIFI is interrupted, the smart devices will still be able to function.

13A 1 and 2-gang switches socket outlets allow the control of any appliance that is plugged in. They can be controlled manually, via the app, or with voice control. The power to the socket can be locked on or off using the app, preventing manual switching. They also feature the 3-pin safety shutter – the shutter will only open once all three plug pins are inserted.

The 13A smart plug-in WIFI socket can be plugged into an existing socket outlet for the control of home appliances, lamps etc via the existing WIFI network, and can be controlled via the app.

Smart switching and dimming receivers provide control of the lighting and appliances in the home from anywhere in the world. All receivers are supplied with a removable bracket, which can be used to mount the receiver in a back box if installed directly behind the switch or the light source. The bracket also features a DIN rail clip, allowing it to be installed in the consumer unit.

The Smart camera – for indoor use (IP20) offers motion detection, automatic image capture and alarm functions. When an object or person moves in the detection field the App will send an alarm and capture images in real time. Install a micro SD card to record and playback footage.

PIR Sensor – for indoor use (IP20) senses motion and will trigger an automated device set within the app. It offers detection up to 7 metres, with a 170⁰ angle.

Smart Temperature and Humidity Sensor – for indoor use (IP20) – allows control of the temperature and humidity in a room. Once installed and set to the comfort level on the app, install the smart socket and set automations via the app. Whenever the sensor identifies that the temperature or humidity is outside the defined zone, the heater or other device plugged into the smart socket will be automatically activated.

Smart Window and Door Sensor – for indoor use (IP20) – provides real time monitoring of window and door status, sending a notification via the app whenever a door or window is opened or closed. It can also be used for automatic light switch-on when a door is opened, when paired with a switching receiver within the app.
