Smart Kitchen

What is a Smart Home?

A Smart home is essentially the use of automation within your customers home for everyday fixtures such as light switches, thermostats, appliances, and entertainment systems through an App or one centralised smart hub, sometimes known as the controller, gateway or coordinator. With thousands of IoT products on the market, ADI offers a selection of customer focused products to create the ultimate Smart Home. We have broken the products down into categories, such as: Kitchen, Lounge, Bedroom, Front Door & Outdoors. In this blog we are going to look at Smart home products for the kitchen, the upsell opportunities they provide, and how your customers could benefit from them.

Programmable Thermostat

Manual thermostats, also known as Analog thermostats, are quickly becoming a thing of the past as their Programmable thermostat counterparts become more accessible and energy efficient, offering customers potential savings on their annual energy bills.

Whilst Manual thermostats are cheaper to install with their lower upfront cost, a programmable thermostat such as the T6r Wireless Tablestand Smart Kit, will save your customer money as a long-term investment. Notably, programmable thermostats result in far greater temperature output accuracy, giving your customer far more control and insight into their energy usage and expenditure.

Another major benefit that programmable thermostats have over their Analog rivals, is the option of customisation and convenience. Gone are the days of having to remember to dial down the manual thermostat as you leave the house. A programmable thermostat can work off a pre-programmed schedule based around your customers comfort levels and schedule, automatically carrying out adjustments to ensure customers homes remain at the desired temperature. A programmable thermostat or smart thermostat should be a staple of every modern smart home.

Water Leak & Frost Alarm

When you think of a Smart home, your customer would not be the first to assume that the products related to this are purely for luxury purposes. However, there are a vast array of products designed to protect and secure the modern Smart home.

A great product that brings protective technology to your customers home, is the W1KS Water Leak Detector. The cable on the compact device detects water leaks and sends a notification to your smart phone that could save your customer thousands of pounds in water damage and repairs. According to Yahoo Finance, Brits averagely spend £13bn a year on water damage to UK homes. It is also reported that 43% of UK homes suffer costly water escape. Offering an affordable solution to your customers not only adds a layer of security to their home but creates additional business for you.

Although the water leak detector can be used throughout the entire home, ADI recommends placing the device on major appliances such as a refrigerator, washing machine, boiler or radiators.

Radiator Controller

The Honeywell wireless radiator controller is the perfect product to consider when installing heating zones as there are no additional valves required, which makes installation a lot quicker and cleaner. The added bonus of this, is there is no need to drain down the radiator or disturb the pipes and décor as it fit's on to most TRV bodies.

The two-way communication enables remote and real time temperature changes viewable from the App or backlit LCD screen on the control itself.

These are just a few of the products that we have available in our Smart home category that could benefit your customer and add simplicity to their daily routines. As the Smart Home market continues to grow, these products are excellent additions to consider for every customer.
