Kubu and Unique launch ‘Smart as Standard’ partnership

Unique Window Systems is now making all its windows and doors compatible with Kubi smart security as standard.

A launch event to announce the partnership took place at the National Space Centre in Leicester in March.

Around 140 people representing a variety of companies from Unique’s UK-wide customer base, heard presentations from Kubu’s managing director, Ryan Bromley, head of projects and technical, Irun Sangha, and design engineer, Tom Jameson.

Collectively, they covered topics such as the nature of the technology employed by Kubu smart sensors, the ease with which they can be incorporated into new windows and doors, and the functionality and benefits they offer the homeowner.

This includes the ability to remotely check whether their home’s windows and doors are open, closed, locked, unlocked or on a vent setting as well as to receive alerts if someone enters or attempts to enter their property.

The Kubu team also highlighted the commercial opportunities available to installers through their ‘3-Levels to Smart as Standard’ sales strategy and Kubu installer scheme, which actively encourages installers to take advantage of current market trends and become smart installers ‘as soon as possible’.

The presentations drew parallels with other brands of smart home and home automation technology such as Nest, Hive, Sonos, and Philips Hue.

Sunil Patel, joint managing director of Unique Window Systems, who opened the event, said: “Unique’s success as one of the UK’s leading fabricators of windows and doors owes much to our progressive, forward-thinking approach and our ability to adapt to changing market conditions and trends.

“The decision to offer our range with Kubu as standard is a natural extension of that and fully reflects our desire to create the most inspiring, innovative, and high-performance architectural fenestration products available.”

Ryan Bromley, co-founder of Kubu Smart Security, added: “Our partnership with Unique creates some truly exciting opportunities for their installers to embrace smart tech and to use it as means to upsell or to create differentiation from their competitors.

“Best of all, they can tap into the rapidly expanding and already £multi-billion smart home market with impressive ease and efficiency. Installing Kubu smart sensors has been designed to be simple and intuitive. It can be performed without specialist tools or training. Plus, we’re also offering comprehensive marketing and tech support to help them enjoy maximum returns with minimum effort.”
