Become a pro

Avantis has launched a new dedicated installer website for its smart lock, Kubu, which gives installers access to everything they need to be a ‘Kubu Pro’.

Mark Bromley, CEO of Avantis, said: “We’ve created the new Kubu Pro website to make it really easy for installers promote and demonstrate Kubu to potential customers. Via the website, installers can sign up to become a Kubu Pro and find a fabricator that is fitting Kubu equipped door locks into their doors as standard.”

Kubu Pro installers can access to the Kubu Pro portal, a resource centre containing marketing materials, including images, videos, brochures, leaflets and showroom displays.

Once homeowners have had their Kubu equipped doors fitted by installers, they can buy their Smart Kits directly from the Kubu website and set it up themselves, connecting to the Kubu App and Kubu Home Hub. It can also be added to Amazon Alexa and Google Home Hub, where homeowners can check on the lock status of their door. If homeowners leave their home with the door unlocked, the WiFi perimeter feature sends a notification to their phone via the app to let them know.
