Smart up front

Bristol-based Caddy Windows has become one of the first Kubu Pro Installers.
Caddy Windows, who buy all of their windows and doors from official Kubu launch partner Emplas, will be installing Kubu-equipped doors as standard.

Nick Caddy, sales and marketing director at Caddy Windows, said: “We’re really excited to be taking on the Kubu lock. Like us, Kubu is a very innovative product so it works well with the ethos that we have here at Caddy Windows.”

The Kubu lock is fitted to all doors that Caddy Windows buy from Emplas, and Caddy will install the door, fit the lock, connect the lock to the Kubu App and Home Hub, and set these up for the customer to use. Homeowners can then check on the lock status of their door and be notified if they leave the house with the door unlocked.
“We chose Kubu over other smart locks on the market due to its affordability to the customer,” Nick said. “It’s also simple to set up and simple to use. Other more expensive smart locks are hardwired. This offers great value to the customer and gives everything they need in a smart lock.

“Being a Kubu Pro Installer means we can benefit from tailored marketing support and I know that there’s someone on the end of the phone if we’ve got any issues or questions.

“Installing the Kubu will give us more upselling opportunities. It’s also a product that none of our competitors in the local area offer so it means that when we’re selling a front door to the customer, we can offer something that no one else can. We’re always looking for ways to stay one step ahead of the rest, and Kubu is that one step.”
