A recent survey has found that smart thermostats are the smart home product that Brits most want to own in 2020.
Sellhousefast.uk surveyed 1,462 UK households to discover the smart home products they planned to purchase this year and a smart thermostat topped the list with 71% of respondents. Security was also very much in mind, with smart doorbells and security cameras in the top five items, which also included smart plugs and smart bulbs.
Matt Parton, product development manager with ESP and Sangamo commented: “We know that the market for smart home products has exploded in recent years and advances in technology continue to make them much more accessible to everyone. In the current climate, with concerns about job security and diminished household incomes, it makes sense that people will want to control the heating and manage their bills.”
A smart thermostat is something that installers can easily add to their customers’ home heating, allowing householders to control and monitor the room temperature and thermostat activity from anywhere in the world, via an App on a smart phone or tablet.
The Sangamo Wi-Fi Thermostat launched last year offers energy efficient programming and remote access via the SANGAMO CHOICE APP. It has been designed to be straightforward to install and operate and is suitable for electric, gas or oil systems.
The smart doorbell market is one which has seen exponential growth in recent years and it’s no surprise to see it towards the top of the list of most wanted smart home products. It provides users with an affordable and easy to install system that acts as a home security solution as well as providing a convenient means to deal with visitors and deliveries.
From a smart phone or tablet and using the free app, they can easily see who is at the door or gate, engage in two-way communication and grant access if desired.
ESP’s popular Aperta Wi-Fi Door Stations come in a kit form containing everything required for the installer to quickly and simply get the system up and running.
A battery-powered version is also available, making it even quicker and easier to install a security solution, without the need for cabling. The door stations are available in a choice of matt black or graphite grey.
