Some of the top glazing industry influencers gathered beneath the stars for the launch of Kubu Smart Lock, the latest smart home technology from Avantis International.

Held at Birmingham’s Planetarium at The Think Tank, Kubu was launched to a crowd of more than 60 people.

Mark Bromley, CEO at Avantis International said: “Our Kubu launch day was an incredible success. There was no better place to hold the event than at The Think Tank. It’s a place full of progress and innovation and that’s exactly what Kubu is bringing to the glazing industry’s Smart Home revolution.”

Kubu Smart Lock combines two of Avantis’s specialities – electrical components and window and door hardware, to create a clever lock that lets homeowners know the security status of their door. It’s called mechatronics and Kubu is the first smart lock that can be easily fitted in volume to the masses, giving plenty of opportunities for installers to get their piece of the smart home market.

Just like other smart home gadgets, like Google Home and Amazon Echo, Kubu links up to home WiFi networks. It’s simple for installers to fit and easy for homeowners to set up.

Mark continues: “Home security is important to everyone and we have all had the panic at the airport, on the way to work or when we’ve gone to bed of ‘Did I lock the door?’. With Kubu, you can just check the App and find out. It also has a WiFi perimeter feature so that if you leave your door unlocked and your phone disconnects from your home WiFi onto a 4G network, Kubu will let you know. You’ll never leave home with the door unlocked again!

“I’d like to thank everyone who joined us for the launch – but especially our launch partners, Emplas, Dekko, Listers, Nationwide Windows and GJB Developments.”

Kubu by Avantis will be on show on Stand I25 in the Smart Zone at the FIT Show in May.
