Smart activations

Kubu is enjoying considerable consumer uptake, Avantis has reported, with unassisted first-time activations in excess of 98%.

The move into the smart-sensor market has been one in which Avantis International has invested £1 million to date, harnessing its international and wholly owned subsidiaries for the development of the software and firmware, with fully integrated manufacturing from its plant in south east Asia.

Avantis supplies more than one million sensors per month to specialist consumer brands across Europe.

Kubu is set for further enhancements and a product launch in the middle of 2021, as its sets the development pace of the smart-sensor market for windows and doors.

Customers include Abacus, CWG Choices, Dekko, Emplas, GJB, Glazerite, Listers, Nationwide Windows, and Hurst Doors.

Mark Bromley, CEO of Avantis International and Kubu, said: “Smart-sensor technology is here and now with Kubu and is being activated every day through our manufacturing and installation partners and by consumers too. Promising a smart revolution is one thing, but delivering it consistently as we do, is what the industry demands.

“With full vertical integration of software, firmware and manufacturing, we’re in complete control of the process, and that’s why some of the industry’s most respected and trusted manufacturers have adopted Kubu as standard. Together we are creating long-term smart partnerships and are already looking forward to welcoming more companies to a smarter way of thinking.”
