ABB has launched free@home training sessions to help the UK’s electrical contractors and installers develop new smart home skills.
Recognising that contractors need to learn the basics and also keep up to date on new developments, ABB has established free@home training to enable electrical contractors and installers to develop new skills at no cost and take their first steps into smart home systems.
Consumer technologies create more demand for integrated smart home solutions that combine controls for heating, lighting, door entry systems, curtains or blinds, fire and entertainment systems.
Electrical contractors can make the most of this growing interest by learning about the latest smart home systems.
This will give them the knowledge to recommend the best systems for customers, order and install the right components for a project, and then ensure they work together properly during commissioning.
The training is focused on the ABB-free@home smart home system, which is an accessible and affordable home automation solution.
It allows homeowners to control lighting, heating and other home functions through a smartphone app.
After attending a workshop, contractors will have the knowledge and confidence to select, install and commission a smart home system and hand it over to their customer.
